oh God, Fish Tacos. This might make up for you leaving New York.

Sorry you're 1/2 naked and lonely; when do they get there? And couldn't you have each taken a cat to keep you company?

You're living the dream! Do not drop the Saab in the pool! I can lend you 1 zillion dollars if things get tough.

Dino aka Katy said...

yeah there are a couple of down sides to the pool in the backyard

i hate moving but i wouldn't even attempt to move without Grumpy or the furry munchkins

Bubs said... tacos. AND In-N-Out burgers too. Fat city!

I cannot wait until you get settled and start writing dispatches from poolside.

You know, I bet they sell underwear in California. Or if not, they certainly sell swimsuits which are basically the same but out of sturdier fabric.

Moving is LOTS more expensive then you think it is. When I moved down here they gave me 5K to move, double that and I only moved 4 hours away.

Hey at least you have a pool! Set up the cabana and I'll take the next red-eye and drink foo foo drinks with umbrellas in um with ya til PG and the pussycats show up!

Coaster Punchman said...

Lu, separate our cats? The idea! PG is going to fly back with me after our Christmas in Vermont so that we can each take a cat on the plane. Each passenger is only allowed one cat at a time and as I said we don't want to separate them.

Ya, fish tacos y'all, SUFFER SUCKAHS! Ah ha ha ha ha!!!

Missed you terribly in NYC...but I'll be sure to sign up for the next trip to San Diego!

Happy Housewarming, Captain Commando Fish Taco!

Hmmmmm fish tacos!!! I hear they sell pretty good ones at the Padres games. We were in your fair city in April of 2007 and just loved it. But I couldn't live there; too many Republicans.

Tanya Espanya said...

Oh heavenly slurp! Cannot wait to visit you and have some fish tacos!

Cormac Brown said...

Dang, Coaster Comando-man has gone even more Californian than me (I don't do El Pollo Loco).

Chris said...

You have 3 boyfriends? Damn, I knew you were easy but not THAT easy ;)

Hope you find some underwear soon and you get settled in sunny CA.

deadspot said...

I'm jealous. I love San Diego.

I bet California has a specialized refurbishing place for all the cell phones and PDAs that have met a similar fate.

wonderturtle said...

I miss you already! Even though I mostly only ever saw you online!

Creepy said...

Dude, you've got great weather and even better food. (And you're flashing people while sober.) Sounds to me like you're living the dream.
