Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week... 2-14-11

Top 5: 
For the week of 2-14-11:

5. "Cool As Ice"- one of the most awful-some movies ive EVER seen. Between this movie and "ice ice baby", Vanilla Ice, your place in history is cemented sir !!

4. Gnomeo & Juliet- what a nice surprise this was. I went into this movie not expecting much and ended up ( with Mel & Ashley ) laughing louder than the kids in the theatre. A fun time on such a rainy day. 7.5/10

3. Wwe elimination chamber 2011- Ricky & I went to this wrestling ppv and it was real fun. It had been awhile since we'd seen wrestling live and it didnt let us down.

2. After a long work day Tuesday, coming home to my Melly , going to eat pizza @ Rocco's and watching the giants world series DVD.... And, best of all , finding something in the house I thought we'd lost forever.

1. valentines day with my Melly - had a great valentines day with my favorite person. Spent the day in the city and rode a cable car to the wharf. It was raining hard so we ducked into the buena vista for an Irish coffee. Rode the cable car back and went into stores ( Disney store, rasputins where I found a DVD I've been looking for a LONG time... Space jam !!!) ate lunch downtown ( $1 oysters !! ) and came home to listen to the rain and read. A super fun day !!

So that's it.

Top 5:

For the week of 2-7-11:

5. Togos- I had my doubts about how tasty the sandwiches would be here but, going by Melly's praise, we went and I had a pastrami and cheese. And it... Was.... Awesome !!
4. Harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban - still a great read... I read a little bit each night, saving those last great chapters... And I'm now reading book 4 !!
3. NBA Jam - I remember playing this game as a kid and the remake whilenot AS awesome was still pretty good. I played with Melly and, I can admit, she was better than me...
2. The  vietnameise food we had on locust st in walnut creek- Melly saw this place while we were driving down the street and, day before valentines day, we decided to try it. F'n awesome 1. funland not-at-the beach-  last week while reading the Sunday pink in the sf chronicle I read an article about pinball machines and about this place. As a preValentines day thing, mel and I  decided to check it out... The tickets were a bit overpriced but they had all the free pinball you could play. It was a fun day.

So... That's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week... 1-24-11

Top 5:

For the week of 1-24-11

5. Ramona & Beezus- a movie I Netflixed for Melly. And it was one I enjoyed WAAAY more than I expected I would. Funny and fun. 7/10.
4. Fantastic Four # 587- I will admit, aside from liking the character The Thing, to not being a big fan ( check it out every now and again)  of the F. F. 
 I bought this issue to read about which one of the team dies. In the end, the last few panels, showing the death of Johnny Storm, The Human Torch, were great. I might check out the next issue to see what happens
3. Watching a few episodes of the I love Lucy marathon Mel & Ashley were enjoying - I've always liked I Love Lucy and these episodes ( Lucy in Europe were real funny).
2. The dinner Melanie made on Saturday night- I've never had sausage casserole but it was real good, sitting on a bed of mashed potatoes . And the carrott cake was one of the real most tasty things I've had in some time.
1. Making THE sandwich and the kick ass trio of movies we watched Friday night- the combination of The Incredibles+ Hook+ Kung Fu Panda and a great sandwich  was a great night !!

January sucked, February has to be better.

So... That's it.
