making owls cool since 1986

We moved to Arizona to see burrow owls. Where the hell are all the burrow owls?

Who's that man in a black sedan...

...with two cheap hookers and a Mexican?

It's Mickey Avalon - Mr. Right!

Those are some lines from the new earworm that Veau infected me with, "Mr. Right" by Mickey Avalon. Don't listen to it or you'll never get it our of your head.

(This is the links issue of the blog. Have fun.)

We spent last weekend with Veau and Emily in Anaheim, California. Of course, we hung out with Katie too. It was a much less eventful trip than our prior excursion and I mean that in a very good way. The Matrix held up there and back. Except for one little bit of highway confusion around Riverside, the ride was smooth both ways. I even bought a sweet hat at a rest stop!

We didn't really take any pictures this time around. We just hung out and enjoyed ourselves. Veau and Emily took some pictures at the Rio, so those are forthcoming.

Did you think we would go to California without going to the Rio? Of course not!

Our trips to California do contain several similar elements:

1. We go to the Rio. The Rio is a karaoke bar in Anaheim. It might be the best people watching location in the world. Not least of the spectacular specimens is the DJ, Smitty, who you may remember from our previous California blog entry.

2. We get lost and confused by the multitudinous freeways and confusing signs and make myriad comparisons between California's lack of easy navigation and how wonderful it is to get around Phoenix and the Valley.

3. We go to the Lab a.k.a. the Anti-Mall and go clothes shopping. It's overpriced and trendy, yet we invariably get someone to take us there. This time we drove, but Katie navigated. She missed our exit because she was busy telling us about an old man who went to an emergency room with a banana stuck up his butt. It was worth missing the exit to hear about that. I did end up finding a Rogues Gallery T-Shirt, which is my favorite brand of shirt.

So we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and ate at some good restaurants - Sidney's in Fullerton and Rutabegorz in Orange.

Hooray for links!
