Even though I had to work today it turned out to be a wonderful day. My friend Pat made fudge yesterday and brought me a sample; very delicious! Ted bought these beautiful flowers to help brighten my day since I did have to work. And we wrapped up the night playing Rock Band with Adam on vocals, Carol on drums and Ted on guitar.

What a fun day. Ted and I attended the UCLA vs. Arizona State football game courtesy of my coworker Dan. After the game we met Edward and his girlfriend Stacy at the Cheesecake Factory for dinner.

My coworker Dan won four tickets to the UCLA-Arizona State football game in an auction. Dan invited Ted and me to join him and his girlfriend for the game this Saturday. We are also going to attend the Chancellor's tailgate party before the game which promises a lot of delicious food. I am looking forward to Saturday as I will get to do two things I really enjoy: 1) Eat and 2) attend a live sporting event. Thank you Dan!

I received the Winter 2010 UCSB Extension course catalog in the mail last week and it is hard to express the joy I feel knowing I will complete the HR certification program this quarter and I do not have to register for a class next quarter. Next quarter will be the first time in over two years that I won't be taking a class. I am happy about that.

Ted and I watched Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen on Friday night. I fell asleep about 1/2 way into the movie and apparently I didn't miss much. My favorite characters in the movie are Bumblebee and Optimus Prime if that tells you anything about the acting in the this movie.

Ted and I drove up to Pismo Beach today. It was a bit chillier than we anticipated but that did not stop us from enjoying lunch at Mo's. We didn't walk around much because it was quite windy and chilly but we still had a great time.
Picture #1: It's a pig on a surf board.
Picture #2: Ted getting ready to grub.
Picture #3: Despite it being a chilly day the sky was bright blue and clear.
Picture #4: We tried to make it look like I was holding the giant ice cream cone. It didn't really work.

Yummy food and great company... what a great way to finish off the week. Ted and I met Carolyn, Vince, and Ilaria at Madam Lu's for dinner tonight. Ilaria had a great time playing with the soup spoons. They turned out to be the perfect shape and size for her. Oh, and Ilaria was the cutest and the best behaved baby in the entire restaurant.

My friend Danielle invited me to run the P.F. Chang's Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 marathon with her in Phoenix, AZ in January 2010. For some crazy reason I said yes. It's been 8 years since I trained for distance running but I'm actually excited about getting out all of my old running gear and putting on the (new) Asics and training. Wish me luck.

Our friend Vince won big at the Chumash Casino poker tournament today. Vince placed second out of 371 players. Ted played in the tournament as well and after he got knocked out (he placed 52) he and I watched Vince play at the final table. It was very exciting to know someone at the final table. Chumash Casino had a professional photographer on hand to take pictures but I managed to snap a few pictures to commemorate Vince's phenomenal playing. Go Vince!
