Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week... 6-13-11

For the week of 6-13-11:

5. olive garden with my mom & Melanie- all you can eat soup & breadsticks. Yes please.

4.  the California dreamin' sandwich at Safeway I had Thursday - it's been awhile since I've had this sandwich . But, , this week,  while working a long day, I decided to get it for lunch. It was tasty as hell.

3. Emilio's surprise birthday party @ spoontonic - mel & I celebrated our friend Emilio's birthday with a few drinks and a few laughs.

2. After a long day at work Friday,  having a good dinner and some beers at Mellos with Melanie - went out to eat with my Melly and had some great food. The giants/a's game was on and we drank some beers. It was a great night with my most favorite person in the world.

1. Fathers day with Mels family -  Fathers day, for me, for obvious reasons ( dont feel like rehashing now) has always been a weird one. This year, in fact, was the first one in my life I did not spend with either my dad or uncle Bobby and my mom. 

Fathers day, the first few years without my dad, and these last few with my uncle Bobby not being well, have been not great shall we say. These last few being particularly hard.

However, this year i went to spend fathers day with Melanies family. I was looking forward to it, I hadn't seen everyone in sometime. And I had a great time. Great food, great company, GREAT time. 

So, that's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This week...6-5-11

Top 5:

For the week of 6-5-11:

HM: skins- Mel and I have been watching the British version of this show ( far better than it's crap US counterpart) on netflix through the xbox. A decent show that is at times funny.

5. playing with puppies- Melanies mom's dog had puppies and this week we went to play with them. It was fun, they are so little and adorable.

4. wolverine #10- the latest Logan solo series is becoming one of my favorite comics to read. I have every issue thus far. This issue, revealing the back story on the group set out to finish wolverine once and for all, was a good read.

3.  Marruccis 6 1/2- I decided to try Melanies favorite sandwich from this deli. Tomato, motzarella & procuitto. And despite

2.bravos pizza- after a long spell of going without, it was great to have a few slices of the best pizza in the world.

1. Getting to sit in $5 seats with frannie, ashley & melanie to watch the giants beat washington in 13 innings !!

So... That's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Thibgs This Week 5-30-11

Top 5: 

For the week of 5-30-11:

5.  in-n-out burgers for dinner- always tasty. I got a double double with animal style fries.

4. the heartbreaker ( French movie) - Melanie has been telling me about this movie for a week or two now and, this week, finally managed to sit me down long enough to watch on netflix instant. I thought I would be distracted by the subtitles but I wasn't. A funny movie that I really enjoyed. 7/10.

3. "Thor"- I'm not a big fan of Thor . And by not a big fan i really mean , not a fan at all. I was in fact not planning on seeing this movie until it came to DVD. Then, I found someone selling it on bootleg for $2 and I decided to check it out. A good quality bootleg ( though with Spanish subtitles on the bottom), I'll be honest and say I enjoyed this movie WAAAY more than I thought I would. Decent action and a good job by the guys who played Thor & his brother Loki . I'll give it a 7.5/10

2. watching Ducktales with Ashley & Melanie - growing up I watched the Disney afternoon almost everyday after school. And of all the shows on there my favorite was Ducktales ( Talespin being the other favorite). A long time ago, I found Ducktales on DVD used at amoeba. And while looking for something to watch saturday night, Ashley, Melanie & I  decided to check out some of the adventures of Scrooge Mcduck & co. It was a great time !!

1. X-men first class - this movie, the opposite of Thor , we've  been looking forward to seeing since it was announced more than a year ago. I was excited to see the mutants when they were young and then, when I heard they were focusing on prof. X & magneto ( magneto was supposed to get his own Xmen origins movie but they bailed on it) I was a bit skeptical. Then when I found out cyclops, iceman & co wouldn't even be in the movie, I doubted even going. The trailers looked cool so Melanie, Ashley & I decided to go. And I thought it was great. Although I think I should watch again before "officially" saying this, I'm going to "unofficially " say this was the best Xmen movie I've seen yet ( knocking X2 from the top spot). Full of action, inside comic geek nods & winks and some pretty good performances ( the guys who played Charles & Magneto stood out). I'm going to give this movie a 8.5/10. Looking forward to the DVD ( or, maybe, bootleg first).

So... That's it.

Thursday June 2nd


Today I have, for some reason, a bit of a cough. I'm not letting it worry me but I don't want to be sick.

Last nights Giants game was crazy, though they won in 11innings, the game was delayed for 10-15 min because a section of the stadium lights went out in St. Louis. I mean, everyone is trying to take down the champs, it would seem even pg&e is trying to throw a roadblock SF's way.

Today is my last work day before a much looked forward to 4 day weekend. On Friday, Melanie & I are going to the giants game and I'm really looking forward to it. Saturday, we were supposed to graduation party, sadly it was rescheduled and now I can't go. Im bummed cause I was looking forward to eating some great food and seeing some cool people. And because of this i dont know what im doing sat. Sunday we are visiting my uncle Bobby . It should be a great weekend and one I've been looking forward to for awhile. Best of all, I get to spend 4 uncut days with my favorite person in the world ( who I hope is feeling better).

In just an hr, I will be work free. I can't wait for four days of fun times and adventures...

An experiment in june....


For this month ( at least), I try to blog everyday. Nothing special, you will still see the Top 5 every week, yet I will try it as an experiment of sorts. 

Up today early for work ( as I type this, in fact, I'm there) which is fine because an early start means an early exit ( that's what she said !!). I can't wait for my work day to be over so I can spend the rest of the day having fun with my Melanie . 
I have 4 hrs of work to go, I hope they go by fast....
