I wasn’t even supposed to be here today …

What a day! Wednesday = mundane report day! Hey I promised to post daily, I didn’t promise they’d all be winners. 😛

Today started off on the wrong foot for yours truly. I had a terrible sleep so I woke up tired, and when I’m tired, I’m clumsy. Clumsier than usual anyway. Despite it being my day off, I was up at 7am, and off to work for 8am. I had to head in for a couple hours before heading off to the San Francisco Airport to go get Erin. I was two sips into my coffee and then ended up knocking over my cup, spilling it all over my desk. Rookie mistake. The keyboard was the only victim of my accidental destruction. I didn’t think to take a picture, but it was a glorious spill.

3 hours later I was off! First thing’s first … had to gas up!

Gassin' Up!

Alright, we’re off to the races! The drive was was clear and I listened mostly to Andrew W K on the way.

Look who I found at the Airport!

Guess Who?!?!?!

However upon arriving and finding Erin, she was waiting at the Guest Services counter being told her bags hadn’t left New Orleans. Good job United! Here’s to hoping they deliver on their promise of delivery first thing tomorrow.

Pouty Face 😦

That was the end of the bad for the day though. Thus California journey with E-Rock (That’s me!) began! I do my best to come up with a song to listen to as the first song to kick off the journey. I wanted a song that will put a HUGE smile on Erin’s face, and then have her cringe immediately after. I’m jerky like that. 🙂 Knowing that Erin LOVES Britney Spears, and my love of heavy metal, I chose … this.

For lunch, we headed over to Harry’s Hofbrau for Hot Pastrami and Pulled Pork sandwiches.

Best. Hot Sandwiches. EVER!

Full of food, and in much better spirits we headed for my apartment … which consisted of watching some tv, then making a grocery shopping excursion. More tv, misc YouTube videos, brownies from scratch (yes, they’re delicious, and Erin helped), and now a movie – The Bounty Hunter … which Erin has fallen asleep to within the first 15 minutes, while I labouriously update her blog with mundane content. Though for the record, I’m more than happy to do so. Here’s a picture of Erin on the Rolls Royce of inflatable mattresses. 😀

Oh bed, you look so good!

Yes, that’s a puzzle on my table. Puzzles are Awesome, though optional, and not a requirement of Awesomeness.

Today started out poorly, but is ending on a high note. Tomorrow, I have an appointment, but I plan on documenting how to dress appropriately for such an occasion. Erin will be wandering aimlessly around the mall near my apartment. Friday we’re going to Muir Woods for redwoods and hiking. Saturday and Sunday are San Francisco days. All will be documented for your amusement.

E-Rock out.

P.S. It’s difficult to blog when the adorable fat ass of I cat I have, insists on strong arming her way into my lap.

That's some sweet spiral action I got while taking this pic

Checklist of Awesome

Truth be told … I’m awesome.

That said, not only is Erin coming to visit The San Francisco Bay Area, she’s coming to visit the San Francisco Bai Area. Keep your panties on ladies, I’m talking about my apartment, which, like me, is also awesome. I’m sure a study somewhere will show that people like awesome things. People also like awesome accommodations. Do you have any out of town friends that would love to visit, but just don’t want to stay with you due to your lack of awesome? Worry not, I am here to assist.

Awesome is closer than you think, but it will require a few things. With my simple Checklist of Awesome, your pad will be the place to stay!

The Checklist of Awesome:

  • Queen sized air mattress
  • Big tv
  • Video games
  • Rock Band and instruments
  • Food
  • Drink
  • Fully functional toilet
  • Chubby animal
  • You (optional)

Queen sized air mattress:

Bow chicka wow wow ...

Look at this monstrosity. It’s amazing. It’s like the Rolls Royce of inflatable mattresses. Look at how happy those people are! “Screw foam, screw springs! Honey, we’re gettin’ an AIR MATTRESS!” Also, look at her face. Clearly she just had the time of her life. – Queen sized air mattress – CHECK!

Big tv:

 

"Hey Bai, your tv is pretty big!" ... "That's what She said!"

Big tvs are important. Why? Because they’re awesome. Also important for the next item on our list … notice the PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. The big tv allows for better viewing, and you don’t have to hear any whining about it being to small, unless your friend has a bigger tv. If they do, then you are not awesome enough … maybe you should go to their place? – Big Tv – CHECK!

Video Games:

I have a few ..

Video games are quintessential to the “hang out” experience. It’s 2011, people don’t talk anymore. This is a digital age. We’d rather be social in a cyber capacity by updating lame-o social networking sites like Facebook, or Twitter with our mundane activities. Video games take the edge off of having to actually converse, and goes straight to shit talking. You are absolutely certain that your buddy is going to call you out and you are going to respond in kind with the beat down of their life. “BAM! BAM! BAM! Whack! Whack! When’s it EVER gonna stop?! Survey says … NOT … VERY … SOON!!!” Who’s up for some Mario Kart?! I’ll OWN YOU!

Video Games – CHECK!

Rock Band and instruments:

Rooooock Baaaaaaaannnnd! You don't have to put on the red light ...

This is obviously an extension of the previous item, but still required for Awesomeness all the same. While you can still be competitive, Rock Band challenges you to cooperate with your friends, and several of them simultaneously. It also allows you to call them out when they suck balls at the game. Crank on No-Fail mode, and you’ve got yourself in-house Karaoke with plastic instruments. Don’t lie, you know you love it. You feel so bad ass with that plastic guitar or drum sticks in your hands. Then there’s the whole “Who wants to be the singer?!” problem. The only person that wants to sing the most … is the person who THINKS they are incredibly bad ass at singing, and are absolutely terrible. That person is the frontman to your video rock badassery … and you wouldn’t have it any other way.

Optional: If you have a mullet wig like I do, pop that sucker on and now you’re an 80’s rock star! –Rock Band and instruments – CHECK!

Food:

nom nom nom

Friends with no food, are just friends. Friends WITH food … are freakin’ AWESOME! Don’t be a hater, get your ass to the grocery store and stock up! -Food – CHECK!

Drinks:

Ahhhh beer ... my one true weakness ... my Achilles heel if you will ...

Seriously, if you don’t have anything to drink, I’m not coming over, and you are not Awesome. Water is not a drink, everyone has that. I could stay home and drink water you cheap bastard. Added bonus, beer can be consumed in conjunction with any item on this list! -Drinks – CHECK!

Fully Functional Toilet:

...of questionable cleanliness ...

This is pretty much the most basic of requirements. Trust me, a working toilet in the time of need is quite Awesome. Extra points for it being clean. Chicks dig a clean bathroom … high five to you good sir … or madam.

-Fully Functional Toilet – CHECK!

Chubby Animal:

O Hai! Aye iz Awwsum kitteh!

Animals. They’re adorable. They melt your heart, and the hearts of your friends. They make you appear sensitive, when really you’re a jerkface. They’re also inherently hilarious, soft, squishy (cuz they’re chubby!) People love animals. They can’t resist. Even if your animal is mean, people will STILL try to chase them and pet them and talk to you about them etc. “Wow that’s so awesome, you have a kitty?! She’s SOOOOOOOOO sweet! You’re so awesome for saving a life!” … Yeah … I am aren’t I? -Chubby Animal – CHECK!

You:

This is a picture of my tits! 🙂

With the exception of house sitting (no one house sits at a non-awesome joint … no one!), you have to be Awesome yourself to warrant a visit from your friends. Your awesome stuff can be found anywhere, but you’re (allegedly) one of a kind! Now, if you have all the items on this list and feel that you’re sufficiently Awesome, but still have no friends visiting, you aren’t going to like what I’m about to tell you. Maybe you should sit down  …

I’m Awesome!
