To me it just seemed like six or seven seconds…but I guess we went coast to coast.

18 Mar

We’re in San Diego!  The weather is ideal, and the Mexican restaurants are as plentiful as Dunkin’ Donuts are back home.  I have always contended that there’s no reason for Florida anymore, because we have a perfectly good California to visit or move to.  In any case, this is how we got here:

The Super 8 Motel we stayed in presented a surreal dilemma.  The clock indicated that we were already in Pacific time, so we thought we had an extra hour to sleep/hit the continental breakfast/check out.  We did not.  So we hustled to shower and get out.  

We embarked on a long day of desert driving, on which we saw many impressive natural sights.  

A very long desert train.

Cacti.  Or as we call them: "The Prickly Doodleoos."

A very hot looking mountain.

Dunes.  As far as the eye can see.

Then we arrived in San Diego at Misha and Rachel’s house.  They have a new home and a new cat.  Both are terrific.  We went to Mama Testa’s for dinner.  I had soft tacos al pastor.  Good choice, me!  

Then we scooted over to Lestat’s, a 24 hour coffee shop where a comedy show is.  We sat around for a while waiting to see when the show would start, and then, on a whim, I went outside to see where else it could be.  Like  a dummy, I had been waiting next door to the actual venue.  We got inside and did the show with San Diego/Los Angeles comics Mal Hall, KT Tatara, Andy Ruther, and Patrick Keane.  The audience was amazing, especially considering it was a free show at a coffee shop on the drinkin’est night of the year.  We got to work out the kinks on some new jokes we had written in the car.  Shawn has a killer new thing about falconry (really).  It is really a great room.  Thanks to Jono Zalay for hooking it up.

Today some hoops, and then up to LA.   

Huzzah!
