I took a much needed trip to San Diego last weekend to clear my head and visit some friends.

It was quite the enjoyable trip, with mid-70s weather and a convertible Pontiac Solstice rental car which I drove with the top down the entire time. Yes, it was a gutless non-turbo automatic, but the warm air blowing by me made up for that.

On Sunday we drove up to the LA County Museum of Art to view some BMW Art Cars. These were BMWs painted by major artists like Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg.

A quick dinner at Hurry Curry of Tokyo and we were back on our way home, luckily dodging Oscar-night traffic.

Well, if you couldn't tell already, Kate and I broke up this last week. Admittedly it kind of caught me off-guard, but I'm doing my best to cope. It wasn't an angry break-up, and we are still talking regularly.

I still hope the best for her in whatever she does, even if it has to be without me.

Things I won't miss about you.

Things I already miss about you.

- Seeing your happiness when I give you a hot cup of coffee when you get out of the shower.
- Being sweet talked into ironing a shirt for you.
- Accusing me of hiding your shoes/keys/wallet/jacket/etc. whenever you can't find them right away.
- The way you meticulously care for your plants.
- Sitting in front of the aquarium, watching the fish. And naming the new ones.
- When asking "Can I get you anything?", you responding "I don't know, can you?"
- Playing Mario Kart and beating you.
- Playing Mario Kart and losing to you.
- Being forced to lay down as you scour my back or legs for ingrown hairs.
- Hearing you randomly announce "Boobs!"
- Laying in bed doing crosswords right before falling asleep.
- Bringing you Del Taco when you were stuck at work without dinner.
- Giving me a choice between two different chick flicks when renting a movie.
- Cutting slices of gruyere and feeding them to you straight off the block.
- Watching you waltz in the kitchen while listening to the second Jazz Suite of Shostakovich.
- Drinking and doing jigsaw puzzles together.
- The way you briefly smile when I would kiss you on the cheek while you slept.

Hey boid!

I don't know why I don't blog as much as I used to a few years ago.

Maybe I'm more busy.

Maybe I'm more boring.

Either way, here are some birds I took pictures of in West Palm Beach this weekend. All taken with the junker 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 non-IS that you can get for $125 if you watch Craiglist for a bit.
