Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...9-5-11

For the week of 9-5-11:

Hm: the zig zag nacho thing at the sushi place- went to one of our fav sushi places where this was the special of the day. A mix of crab meat, shrimp and other seafood on fried light tasting chips.., I took a chance on this and wasn't let down. It was fantastic !!

5.  Saturday- had a good Saturday. We went to a going away dinner for Melly's cousin Michaela. The food was fantastic and the company was equal to the food. Later that night I walked down the block and had a few drinks at  spoontonic with kc & Emilio. It was fun and Melly was nice enough to pick us up... Shes so sweet.

4." our idiot brother" & " cars 2"- on my day off we decided to check out a movie. And since we were wicked early we walked into Cars 2 about 20 min. into it. And while I didn't really like the first Cars, I ended up really liking this one. 7.5/10. "Our Idiot Brother" was a fun film that I found funny. 7.5/10. It was a fun time at the movies with my baby.

3. chicken & waffles with melly- I'd tried this chicken & waffles place before and it was good. This week Mel & I went to eat brunch there. And it was great. The dish I had ( actual chicken & waffles) was great. The lady who served our food sang happy birthday to the people a few tables away and she sang very well. I feel confident to say that We shall be back.

2.  doing nothing on Sunday but laying around & reading- had a plan to surround myself with snacks, things to read & the always awesome Mel to hang out with me and it was a great day.

1. free giants/ dodgers game- on Friday I got a text from kierstin asking if Mel & I would like some giants tickets to tonight's game. I said Hells Yes !! And a few hrs later ( thank you nika for letting me get off work early !!) we were sitting 18 rows from 1st base to see the giants vs dodgers... Clayton Kershaw vs timmy lincecum !! Sadly, the giants lost 2-1 but it was a fun time and a great night at the ballpark . Going to a baseball game with Mel, for free, with great seats , what could be better. Answer: nothing.

So... That's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week... 8-29-11

For the week of 8-29-11:

5. chicken 'n' grits- for a few weeks my coworkers have been telling me of a chicken and waffles place that opened up. And this week I went and took some food to go. I got the chicken and grits combo and it was good but a little cold by the time I got home. I think it'll be better if I ate there.

4. Scott pilgrim vol. 5&6- the last two volumes of a series that Mel & I enjoyed throughout. And while the ending wasn't that great the series as a whole was fantastic.

3. wolverine # 14 - the end of the "wolverine's revenge " story arc , the culmination of a 2 year story I've been reading. Simply fantastic ( the whole story arc as well as this issue) and one that I recommend any fan of wolverine reading. 

On any other week that might've been # 1 but I went to a pair of awesome Giants games this weekend...

2. star wars day@ the giants game with Ashley & Melanie - when I first heard the announcement for "star wars day" I wanted to go. Bad. Thankfully I got tix for us early. Later the found out the giveaway was a statue of Brian Wilson/ Han solo frozen in carbonite!!! People were dressed in costume and after the game ( sadly it was a loss to Arizona. A win the giants needed bad) they showed The Empire Strikes Back ( my fab star wars film) on the giant screen. It was a fun day.

1. free giants game on Friday- thanks to Melanie's dad we lucked into club level seats for the giants/dbags game on friday. The seats were awesome !! I'd never been to the club level and they have a ton of cool stuff there. Different food, roomy seats, good people. The giants played fantastic and managed to get an important win ... Carlos Beltran goes 4-4 with a hr and Cody f'n Ross gets a hr and makes one of the best catches I've seen all year !! after the game we walked around the club level and checked out all the memorabilia they had there. It was really cool to see all the players baseball cards, bobbleheads and actually touch a Barry bonds game bat. A fantastic night with the love of my life. 

So..That's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week.. 8-22-11

For the weekly 8-22-11:

Hm: having a fun time bowling with my coworkers.

5.  barney's version- rented this movie with Paul giamatti as Barney, a cigar chomping, booze guzzling tv producer from Toronto. I didn't expect much but did want to see this movie after watching the trailer. And I ended up liking it more than I thought I would. 7.5/10.

4. mango vodka/7up + mrs. Doubtfire = crazy awesome !! A tasty mix that left me more than a little buzzed.

3.  pleasant hill free book giveaway- went back to the book giveaway for seconds. For serious, the free book giveaway is an event  melly & I have been looking forward to all year. Went and got a ton of cool books and they were all free. Even found some comics . Including a hardback edition of a batman story that was prob at least $50 when it was new.

2.  giants game with Mel - any day @ the ballpark with my love is fantastic. And this was no different. With the season coming to a close soon it's days/nights @ the ballpark with Melanie that I'm going to miss until next season.

1. Sunday with the family - seeing kiara- went to my nephew's 8th bd party this week and had fun. At the party I got to see my niece kiara who I hadn't seen in almost 2 years. I was amazed how tall she was ( almost the same height as me ?!?) and grown up she was. It was great to see both of them ( missed those kids) and everyone else. Food was good too.

So... That's it.
