Strings Too Short To Tie

I went out on a bike ride on Saturday. I saw a lime-green whoopie cushion by the side of the road. I wonder if it glowed in the dark.

Happy New Year. Did I say that yet? I meant to say that. Now, it's 2009. Which feels so completely different from 2008.

There's still no surf to speak of. Who ordered up the flat spell? Me, I'm blaming Kelly Slater. Reportedly, he recently bought a house here. Clearly, it's all his fault that it's been flat for weeks and weeks and weeks. Sigh.

In other surfing-related news, we just sold one board, so we can buy another. So virtuous.

If you are of the surf-video watching persuasion, One Track Mind has some quite lovely footage shot on film (as opposed to digitalness.) Yum. Funny interviews, too.

No surf, how about food? I recently discovered a friend has a fabdabulous blog of vegetarian recipes. Nice clear instructions that even a dumbass like me can follow. And, pictures. Scrumptiously beautiful pictures. Now, where is that kitchen of mine, anyway?

I did say this post was about strings too short to tie. And, really, it's a bit short to tie, too. Somedays are like that. Especially mondays.

Happy New Year!

When Rincon's flat...it's usually pretty good here in CCCX-land!

Yikes. Now, not only am I cold and bored here at work - I'm hungry too. Anyone who can cook a fig is a hero in my heart!

Head high surf. Huh. I think I remember this concept. We did score some funsies down in San Diego over Christmas. Nice, clean peaky beach break on Christmas eve. Yum.

Nice photos, there. When can I move to Santa Cruz?!

LOL, the photos on Veggin' are scrumptious, A. If only I knew how to cook...

Sorry, Jen! Not SandyCruise...with it's silly-con waferchip crowds..rather the other end of the Bay. Dredging open-ocean beachbreaks similar to Zuma or Hollywood. May-July is prime-time for the one featured.......met my wife there too. Bonus!

Mmm, I think a road trip is in order next summer.

Will you scare away all the big fish for me?
