Back at Ice Castle

Today – I’m jamming down to San Diego for the Dodgers vs. Padres ball game. It should be a good one. I’m wearing a navy blue Mary Timony shirt (from the concert) – ’cause it’s the only cool blue shirt I have. I need to show my LA pride….all true fans of the Dodgers and the Padres will be at this game….despite the fact it’s at Noon and in the middle of the work day….OK – I’ll re-phrase that. All true fans who don’t have to work (aka possibly un-employed, such as my sorry ass) – will be at this game.

Busy week….got back from Vegas – my cousin had to deal with some shady real estate agents….but we got that worked out. Had my first bobba drink in Vegas. I did not know they have a Chinatown…but they do. Bobba is yummy.

Let’s see…wedding details…thinking about seating arrangements, invites, e-vites, bridal shower, flowers, make-up, hair….stuff I didn’t think would be important to me and now they are. I told my mom the other day…it’s kinda sad that now my brain is wrapped up in these wedding details. To myself, I said it’s really sad how this is all I really have going on in my life right now.

Then there’s the station. Thank God for volunteer oppertunities in the college radio world. I worked on my show tape for the program director -yesterday. Basically, I pulled music and taped a fake show….I thought of it as a resume or demo tape for the powers that be. I hope they like it. I was still a bit rusty on the equipment – I suppose I’m not used to everything working…unlike my Berkeley station. It floored me that the auto-start for the turntables worked on the board. Well, I’ll cross my fingers and maybe I’ll get a regular show in a few weeks.

I also met-up with my skating buddy, Stacy. It’s always wild to talk to somebody who knew me since I was 5 or so. We did drinks at 330 in Brea. She’s coming to the wedding…YEAH!

Last night, I dreamed I was back at Ice Castles, in Blue Jay. I wore a white t-shirt and black leggings. I felt my old strength…back from my skating days. I felt no fear. I did a couple of laps and then launched into my jumps. First my axel, then my double salchow and finally, a double toe-loop. I felt awesome! I asked the box office if I could keep skating but they said it’s the Zamboni’s turn to clean-up the ice. I told myself I could come back and do the rest of my jumps, another time.
