Camp Pendleton is having war games. I hear the "sounds of freedom" whilst my dogs hear,"the world is coming to an end". Mac acts accordingly.

Steubenville San Diego

It was a great weekend at SDSU with over 4,000 Catholics, about 30 nuns and a hot comedian who looked like Sandra Bullock, I know it was weird, who knew there were two of us out there!

I went to the Tonight Show and all I got was this lousy badge.


We are headed up to Universal today to attend a taping of the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. If you don't hear from me in 24 hours, I probably either
a) Died while waiting in line under the heat of 94 degree weather.
b) Was wisked away to stardom by a chance meeting with a Hollywood executive.
c) Or just forgot to update my blog.

Either way, fun times shall be had by all.

This is my new God-Niece, Ella and her momma Sarah. If you have not heard of the term God-Aunt before it's the melding of being a fake aunt and a non Godmother. A basic sad attempt to be in the kids life but never have to send a check.

San Diego to Steubenville

In 14 hours I will be out the door and on the way to the airport for the second time this week. This time I'm headed to Steubenville, Ohio. I'm looking forward to perfect weather, drinkable water and thousands of Catholics all gathered in one place. One outta three won't be bad. Call the police if I'm not back by Sunday night.

He wanted a picture with me just in case I ever get famous.

Melting in Houston, Texas today. It seems that God forgot to turn off the oven here. Once again, San Diego wins. Usually I am in Texas every time I fly. Since Continental lands here no matter where you fly I'm often in the George Bush airport. It was weird to not just sit in the terminal for a few hours but to actually go outside, into the oven. I was just informed we are having a "cool down" because it's only going to be 99 today.
Now I'm heading over to the Hilton for the start of the Archdiocesan Youth Conference (AYC). It should be a good time if the AC stays on. I am looking forward to hanging out with Paul and Ennie my brothers from two different mothers who are also speaking this weekend. Then on Sunday we are heading out on the "Big Black Judy", a boat named after yours to soon follow.

This is Daniel.
I am friends with his mom.
I really hope that is chocolate.

I think I single handily ruined my mom's birthday yesterday. I should have learned by now, NO WIRE HANGERS!

Virginia Mae

It's the first day of July and in my house that means one thing, my mom's birthday!
Usually by her actual birthday we have all given her birthday presents all ready because either we can not contain ourselves to wait until her actual birthday to shower her with presents or she gives us those puppy dog eyes and we just can't refuse and we buckle and pre-gift her.
I'm way too young to have a mom who is 70 but she's only 70 on paper.
The truth is she has more energy than me and about 99 percent of the people I know.
When I travel and meet grandmas and grandpas I am always surprised when they tell me they are in their 60's because my mom (and dad) could totally kick their butt's!
Age really is all in your head.
Now some people freak out when they hit certain numbers, but in the end it's what you do with the number. I know a lot of 40 year olds who will never do half the stuff my mom will do just in the next week.
Basically I'm hoping her genes are my size and I can borrow heavy from them...I know I can't fit into her wedding dress, that's not true, my left thigh made it through. All I know is that when I grow up I want to be just like my mom. And when I finally do grow up she'll be there, dragging me somewhere three steps behind.
Happy birthday mom! I love you.
