BTV Strikes Again!

On June 4, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

And this time they prove why I don’t do YouTube vids.

Okay, I’m pretty shy.  Quiet.  Taciturn.  Boring.

Unless I have 1/2 of a daiquiri and then I get a personality.

Toni and Mike from BTV showed up at the OH Costa Mesa event and filmed segments with the vendors, some of the patients, and then.. us.  How they convinced me to do this?  I’m not sure.  You’ll notice I just was kinda there as a prop anyway.  Beth was there for most of the heavy lifting.

View… at your own risk.

Wrap-up: SoCal 2010

So I’m home.  And as much as I am always looking forward to getting away from the craziness of my chittering tw0 year old and chattering almost four year old, and the subsequent chaos that accompanies those two with the cats, dogs, fish, frogs, and husband?  I do miss them, even for the 3 days that I’m away.  So I’m glad to be home.  Even if I’m ready to go again when seeing the kitchen sink, the dirty living room, the piles of laundry to do, the blog posts to write, etc.

SoCal Day 2

Mornin’ Folks!

It’s 6:17 Pacific and Beth’s in the shower (so I only have a few minutes)..  I have to get ready before to long, but thought I’d hop on while drinking my protein shake to give a quick run-down of yesterday (still no pic’s.. I’ll make it up to you when I get home, I swear!) while I could.

Got up early, did my run, got Beth up on a treadmill to prove she could, in fact EXERCISE (no, she didn’t run.. but I never asked her to, either) and then we went out in search of food around the hotel to avoid a $6 cup of coffee.  Found a great little Bohemian cafe (the Gypsy Den Cafe) and it was WONDERFUL.  I cannot speak highly enough of this place.  It was perfect.  Walked around, took pictures of all the crazy sights that we always seem to find around us, then headed back to the hotel with some 7-Eleven goodies (Don’t even get Beth started on her “Sasquatch”) where we immediately started running into OH peeps.  Some recognized me, most caught her.  One actually recognized me but not her.. which was a bit … weird.  Because I’m a nobody compared to Beth.

Hey all!

Well, I’m here.

I’m having to use Beth’s computer for now because I can’t get the internet to work on my laptop in the room.  Something about the internet servers not understanding two different computers in the room with wifi wanting to work.  Very screwed up.  Which, of course, screws up my ability to post photos right now.  Drats!  If you aren’t already following me on Facebook, this is when you should friend me.  Cause I’ll add a few photos there as I can.  And yes, being the g33k that I am, I WILL be working on trying to get the internet sorted out so I can get photos up sooner than later.  I want y’all to enjoy the sights I’m seeing while I’m out here.
