Trader Jose- at $5.99/6 pack it's a decent Corona knockoff..
.Well Angela and I had a wild and crazy weekend that started with a trip to IKEA in Emeryville. Emeryville is an industrial hell-hole between Oakland and Berkley that has a higher kill ratio than Baghdad (if you don't believe me check Wikipedia- it's true) Getting off the freeway there is nearly as dangerous as the place itself. Although now there are expensive lofts and condos popping up like mushrooms in a cowpie and soon it will be the new "it" place- provided they fix the impossible offramp which chokes traffic to a gagging blue standstill every day at 5pm.
So we hit IKEA and learned a bunch of Swedish words and bought nothing but Swedish fish and 50 cent hot dogs. Then we rolled to Berkley for a birthday party park picnic with an old friend from Fairbanks who I hadn't seen in about 15 years. He was taller. Then we battled traffic home and geared up for today when we sold off our bedroom furniture. We bid a tearful farewell to our particle-board friends and sent them on their merry way. They now live with a girl from Mexico City and one from Guadalajara who I then helped move their junk for the rest of the day. It was good training for our upcoming move because I saw the benefit of downsizing.
On the morrow it's back to the salt mines...
