1. Octopus sex. This I found to be oddly romantic....yet scientifically fascinating at the same time.
2. Sunglasses for dogs. We actually saw some dogs wearing these while we were in Napa this weekend. It was very cute.
And now I'm off to Oregon....so you probably won't hear from me for a couple days. Tomorrow, I'll be staying where there are no phones....and no cell phone signal. (And I'm not sure if that's a good thing....or a bad thing. I'm fearing withdrawals!) But stay tuned, everybody....see you soon!comments???

So in the end, because I had no real idea how far away her party actually was from our house....plus the fact that I had no idea just how far away the hotel was from the party.....we got there about 2 1/2 hours late!! And by that time, the party was pretty much over. Argh!
But the amazing thing was, just as we arrived....she was walking out the front door to take some stuff to her car. And this was rather miraculous because her party was at this huge arcade/restaurant/bar type place, and I'm sure we would never had found her if she hadn't been standing right out front! (It would have been like trying to find a person in one of those huge Las Vegas casinos....impossible!)
Unfortunately, because we were so late, she was getting ready to leave. But we did have time to buy her one drink.....and she got the most amazing looking drink called something like "The Exterminator" (That's probably not quite right...but you get the idea.) It was a shooter made up of about 7 different liqueurs, all layered in the glass so it looked a bit like a rainbow.....each liqueur was a different color. The bartender took a long time carefully pouring each one so that they wouldn't separate, then set it down on the bar. I looked away for an instant, looked back...and Gnome-girl had downed it in one swallow! I know that's what you are supposed to do, but it happend so fast, it cracked me up. The look on her face after...was one of pain! So, of course, I had to order one. (The quote of the night after that was, "So much work for such a little swallow.")
Anyway, Gnome-girl left, and we decided to make our way back to our cheesy Tiki style motel, where we discovered that their bar is only open Monday through Thursday! What's up with that....a bar that's not open on the weekend?! Weird. But we had brought a flask just in case....so we were set. And the place was pretty nice actually....oddly more corporate than cheesy....but lot's of bamboo and a great bed with amazing pillows (that's the important part!). So overall, it was a good time.
(But next time, I think I need consult with someone about directions before I go booking a hotel!)comments??? (1 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
