..six day without a cell phone...

...so i am home now. but Toasty, my blackberry, did not make it. he decided to become an airline hostess, and stayed on the plane from istanbul. toasty escaped from my bag, and when i realized, right about passport control, they said, nah, you can't go get him.
what if it had been a pacemaker, or perhaps, my passport itself? anyway, nobody turned him in, so i am without any phone numbers, yes, i didn't back up my info. & will i do that again, no. maybe i should have been nicer to him...? ah well. toasty two will reap the rewards of my new behavioral learnings.
...anyway, what this means is that i had a real vacation with NO cell phone, went up to northern CA to meet drew on the timberlake tour, and since the shows were cancelled, we went to see a camille rose garcia exhibit, a raymond pettibon exhibit & i got to meet cheryl & sven's baby levon.
we drove down the astoundingly beautiful pacific coast highway and stopped at the mystery spot. pretty impressive....ok, who knows what the real story is??? (like the guide says, then it would be called "the solved spot")
tonight we are going to the hollywood forever cemetary where they show films (tonight: the exorcist) on the crypt walls, and i will go say hello to johnny ramone's ghost.
meanwhile, miss Heather had her baby last night (this morning?) Welcome little Eli!
when i get a longer minute, i will post photos, and i will report on the last part of the tour, which was a bone-crushing four in a row, but we made it, barely, i am still falling asleep in the middle of sentences...off to the grocery store, which has been like a dream coming true, shopping for my OWN cereal etc. did i mention i was in Greece, home of my half my heart? (the other half lives in Ireland....)
rambling ending now...

What did we do before our tech friends began to rule our lives. My gal pal calls her BlackBerry her CrackBerry for she always text messaging like a junkie on crack! Wish you would had taken photos of your adventures up PCH! It's my favorite drive too! Welcome home beautiful! (Oh, I was released from the hospital!)

Hey Girl,
Finally found a way of getting up with you. Remember me from back in the OC day? Aspen's bro. If you could please email me I would appreciate it very much. I've got some questions for you about a photography project I'm working on, great band photos from 67-74 era. Just google david mark hall and you'll find my site.
Thanks dear and welcome back!

I found a mystery spot on the living room carpet, but I'm pretty sure it was from the dog...
