Alvinisms 969

"You must lose a fly to catch a trout."

-George Herbert (1593 - 1633)

Did you know: They are called "piggy banks" because ong ago, dishes and cookware in Europe were made of a dense orange clay called 'pygg'. When people saved coins in jars made of this clay, the jars became known as 'pygg banks.' When an English potter misunderstood the word, he made a bank that resembled a pig and it caught on.

Thought of the day: Man the week is so much easier after a Charger win. It's like you don't have to worry about falling deeper into a hoe, you think about climbing instead. Sportscenter can be played all day long w/out having to hear about how inferior they are, etc etc etc. Now if and when Pacquiao pulls out a knock out this weekend I will be overjoyed.

Food for thought:

Josephine's baby fruit plate.

Our boy band named: Dirty Feet. (Missing Toe-Knee and Vinh)

5 minute conversation about whether to bring backpacks or just carry sweaters. Geez.

I secretly like this song. Mwahahahaha.
Dang. Really!!! I got busted for selling my extra ticket.

This picture reminds me of Entourage.
The commercials were funny but in real life the Magic Mountain guy is SUPER CREEPY!

The Portillos: Luke and Leo.

We had bets that Vinh would never get a hold of us.

Vinh looks like Bruce Lee, and Luke is a rock star.

Best friends, Leo and KJ.

KJ, TK, Jay, and Vinh are all former Urban FX dancers. So was Leo and Jay.

Our car ready for X2! This ride is awesome.

On the way up on Tatsu. Dirty feet!

It was so rad we rode it twice; day and night.

This is why we were so stoked.

We tried to win KJ some prizes. Kimtan on the rope climb.

Didn't turn out as well as we thought.

I weaseled a free bacon burger w/ fries to go w/ my double burger. FATTIES!

Maybe if we jogged around the park we might have made up for what we ate all day.

TK and KJ take their chances in the wall climb.

Here's the footage of the race.

We all waited and watched.

The previous guys on the wall were uber macho.

This is for not calling me to surf Vinh!

Classic Toes.

And they're off to the races.

KJ! You're the WEINER!

Free capes.

For some reason this picture reminds me of Where The Wild Things Are.

For some reason Riddler was the longest wait.

The best part of the line is when you see the ride and what you've been waiting for.

Night time rides are fun.

Shoot em up for jerseys.

It was such a fun day.

Kimtan got 4 to win it.

Waiting in the wins.
First time I've ever seen a guy win a guy a bear. Hahahahaha!

KJ and I tried our hand in the quarterback throw for Charger bears.

No comment. HAHAHA!


You're a groom not a daddy!

Hahaha, this picture is so awesome that...

...I have to post it twice.

Strawberry/chocolate funnel cake. Oh joy!

Intense yearning for sweets.

Back in SD we were eating again. Look at them looking at the Del Taco menu.

This place is so nostalgic.
