Toms Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...9-26-11

For the week of 9-26-11:

5. Eating tasty dried squid that I got at the asain supermarket- you think it would be gross but it wasn't. Hella good in fact.

4. the new & repeats of "it's always sunny in Philadelphia "- RUM HAM !! One of my fav shows has been really funny this season and, because it's now in syndication , I'm catching repeats of episodes I haven't seen left & right. Hella funny.

-wolverine # 16- in which Wolverine retreats to the wilderness, giving up on being a hero and tries to forget the ordeal he's been through ( seriously, read the whole run of this new wolverine... It's fantastic.) only to find you can't escape being a hero& can't change who you are. I haven't missed an issue in 2 years of this comic, I'll say it's my fav comic on the market right now. This issue just kept the streak if great wolverines going. Looking forward to next month...

2.  "Moneyball"- on a random day off, with no agenda, Melanie suggest we go to a movie. " how bout Moneyball" she said. The movie about the Oakland A's & their GM Billy beane was one I was on the fence about seeing but, in the end, was one I really enjoyed more than I thought I would. Even had me rooting for the A's ( who I like... LOVE the giants ) .

1. Monday off ( slept in, made chorizo con huevo & potatos, had buckhorn for lunch, hung out with melly and went to see "real steel" for free) - the movie was not that good and the over serious process to get in was bullshit ( metal detectors, bag search... For a crappy movie, really ?!?) but spending the day with my baby was great .

So, that's it.

Toms Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...9-19-11

For the week of 9-19-11:

Hm: "the new girl"- watched the series premier of this show and found it really funny. Looking forward to seeing more.

Hm: the variety pack of old man candy I got for $4 at walmart- strawberry, butterscotch , coconut, cherry... All manner of hard candy !! Through some wurthurs originals I had into the mix !!

 5. diet ORANGE coke- at wingstop they have a fancy new soda machine that give you tons of soda options and combos. For the first time ever I had a orange diet coke... It was tasty.

4 The picadillo my mom made on wed.- always awesome

 3.  The  season premiers of "Community" & "The Office" - two shows I really like that brought the funny. 

2. "smile" by Raina Telgemeier- a graphic novel Melly got that I ended up reading and really liking. Set in SF in the late 80's/ early 90's I even knew some of the places that were drawn in the book. 

1. A tour of SF on a day off... Tom & Mel G style...- in which we visited several places from the movies mrs. Doubtfire & the princess diaries as well as the Full House house... We ate slices of pizza in north beach and had a great time taking a unique tour of the city.

So, that's it.

Tom's Top 6 Awesome Things This Wek...9-12-11

Hella behind, but here it is:

For the week of 9-12-11:

-5. seafood city ( making fried lumpia)- went to an Asian supermarket called seafood city with Mel this week. It had a ton of cool stuff, great candy and had lumpia you could fry up at home. We hot done chicken & shrimp lumpia that I made and it was delicious.

4. watching the end of the giants game with Mel's mom- while waiting for Melanie & Ashley I was watching the giants game, a game they needed to win to stay in the playoff hunt, and when Melanies mom showed up we watched the 8th & 9th inning together . It was fun listening to her say " they are gonna lose !!" everytime a strike was thrown. And, in the end, the giants beat the Rockies.

3. seeing The Lion King in the theatre- the first time I watched the Lion King it was on VHS with my mom . So this week was my first time seeing the movie on the big screen. And it was still a fantastic movie.

2.  meatloaf & mashers made by mom on Thursday- I hadn't eaten all day ( damn you 4 hr shifts !!) and the meatloaf & mashers my mom made for her, my uncle Bobby, Mel & myself was fantastic !!

 1.  Giants win 3-1 vs SD in the last game melly & I had tickets to this season - we got to go to more than a few games this year and being at the the ballpark with my love was always a great time. Its going to be rough not getting to go to games till next year but we had some great times at the ball park this year !! 

So... That's it.
