KB and I took a quick road trip this past weekend up to wine country in Paso Robles, California! Here are a few (phone) photos from our trip!

You might not recognize the name of their town, but you definitely know their dinosaurs that Pee-wee made famous in his big adventure:

Kathy, Mr. Fabulous and I hit the road last weekend, traveling a hundred miles east to the tiny, truck-stop town of Cabazon, California. We went for two reasons.

Here’s the first reason (click on all images for larger versions):

In Los Angeles!

Seriously, this is the sixth day of storms here. On Tuesday alone we had torrential rains, floods, mudslides, waterspouts, hail, tornadoes, and Kathy saw some goddamn snow coming down while she was at work.

California seriously does have all types of weather… within a 24-hour period.

Waiting for a volcano to erupt,



this post: This morning, at 6:57 AM, Kathy’s sister called to see if she was pregnant.

The joke is now officially on me.

Please remember that California is two hours behind Illinois,


…thanks to all you morons who voted for bigotry yesterday.

To you, I pass along this message that I wrote to all the Californian bigots a few months back. I’d write you your own post, but you’re not worth the time.

The 51st State of America is the State of Idiocy,


I just wanted to let you know that you’re a moron, probably for a plethora of reasons but mostly because of this.

And while it’s not illegal to say that, I’m sure you’ll find some way to turn it around and make it so.

When it comes to politicians, you’re the lamest of the lame, and that’s saying a hell of a lot.



Old Poop!
