Odd Stuff

The Strange and Unusual

The Strange and Unusual

It’s that time again. Time for pumpkins, goblins, and ghouls. I like Halloween for the creative costumes, candy, decorations, but most of all, I love the creep factor. I’m drawn to it like a moth to a flame. I can’t resist a good ghost story, a […]

Barcelona: Off the Beaten Path

Barcelona: Off the Beaten Path

Seldom featured in guidebooks, less publicized locales are a favorite of mine. You could say I have quite an interest in fringe sights. We tend to seek out the weird and unusual and will go to great lengths to find something different. The best part is most of […]

52 Weeks: 2/52

52 Weeks: 2/52

Week 2’s random snaps of the everyday… A late afternoon walk in the park and a bottle tree. Working on a new recipe (coming soon) while Mr. B patiently waits for me to drop something good to eat. Checking out a new brewery and taking […]

52 Weeks: 1/52

Welcome to my new post series titled 52 Weeks. With the start of the new year I thought this would be a good time to begin documenting some everyday activities and random stuff throughout the year to share. Let’s see how it goes, but so […]

2014: Happy New Year!

2014: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, folks! I can’t believe it’s already 2014, but then again, I always say that. It seems like every year goes by faster and faster. That’s why I need to make this year count and actually DO something worthwhile like take some risks. […]

Throw Rag at Til-Two {San Diego, CA}

Throw Rag at Til-Two {San Diego, CA}

The lights dim under a black tarp roof. What looks like gang of homeless misfits takes the stage and without missing a beat belt out the soundtrack for the apocolypse. Capt. Sean Wheeler dressed in a sailor girl’s outfit lays it all out and you […]

The Queers at Soda Bar {San Diego, CA}

The Queers at Soda Bar {San Diego, CA}

We made it out on a “school night” to see the Queers last week at Soda Bar in San Diego, CA. We’ve seen the Queers every time they have performed in SD since we’ve lived here and although their shows are always good, I’ve yet […]

Xochimilco and La Isla de las Munecas

Xochimilco and La Isla de las Munecas

It takes effort to get to Xochimilco, effort and the courage to endure steaming hot metro rides along with a trip on the local train which can cause motion sickness in the most seasoned travelers. Our trip started as such, and took no less than […]

La Clandestina and Cueva de Leon {Mexico City}

La Clandestina and Cueva de Leon {Mexico City}

I’ve never really been a fan of tequila or anything that remotely smelled like tequila. One too many tequila sunrise drinks will do that to a person. Let’s not revisit that time. So we’re here in awesome Mexico City after an hours long airport delay […]

Everyone Loves Watermelon!

Everyone Loves Watermelon!

Summer is definitely here and so it’s watermelon season once again. While we are growing our own, this is one from the market. We were sitting on the porch enjoying cold slices of sweet and juicy watermelon and noticed the dogs were completely fixated on […]
