What a world a week makes... hells, in less than a week I'll be resetting this whole Weekly Round Up/Update once again as I become "The Answer To The Ultimate Question Of Life, The Universe, And Everything"
It's America's 239th B'day, the weather is warmer than warm, it's a 3day weekend - of which this 2nd day is spinnin' by...

I admit, I am a sucker for love - love between partners, love between parent and child, cinematiq love, etc.
on the cinematiq side, I love my love (heh - "love my love" *ahem*) mixed with a nice dose of humour... a great example is the film I just finished watching before I began writing this, D.E.B.S., which is a fun mix of action...

Thursday evening - after having purposefully looked up and walked the steepest streets I could discover/find, I posted on fb for people to guess how many flights/floors I had walked that day
( I didn't know at the time, as my tracker doesn't register until I'm home again )
the winner was good friend Sir William, with a guess of 137 - the actual...

Part I: Touring San Francisco In Photos :
While I took a bloody insane amount of photos (over 500!), because my camera is getting "old" it only held a charge for 4hrs and I could've taken many, many more photos.
there are areas of the city I explored after my camera had died and I didn't feel like going back to the hotel to...

laundry done, everything ready to put into the bags, and in roughly 13hrs from typing this I'll be boarding a plane for my Solo Vacation Adventure!
*whew* the excitement has me buzzing - but I'd better be able to sleep... I need to crash in maybe an hour or two as I need to be up a couple hours earlier than I normally am...

As I sit near the newly-tiled apartment kitchen/dining room with the scent of gas from the re-installed stove buzzing my brain, I realize I'm just 12days - give or take - from my San Francisco vacation!

and, so, completely unrelated to the impending Vacation Adventure :

One of the few things that I am proud of myself about - other than my willpower - is that my mind...

June is upon us, just one full day left... *whew*
Next week they'll start the work on my apartment - beginning with the kitchen/dining area by replacing and extending the tile, so no more carpeting in the dining area...
possibly a good couple feet into the living room, but hopefully no further since I'm not moving the living room bookshelves that are just...

Mornin' all!
and a gorgeous mornin' it is, too - kinda gloomy skies with a taste of rain in the air, but still... gorgeous! :)
just spent a couple hours off-and-on the deck watchin' traffic and hearin' one of the neighbours get up and start their 2nd day of moving stuff out

not too much to tell, busy at work - prioritizing and appeasing to the best of...

ACt I :
barely more than 4 weeks away and I will be in San Francisco for just short of a week's span (though I took the entire week off).
excited, I surely am - though I doubt anyone can blame me for this, neh?
I'm still open for recommendations, as all I have planned other than the getting there, staying there, and getting back...
