As seen at Bay to Breakers '05...

Here's a pic of me and the lovely husband at SF's Bay to Breakers Race last Sunday. (Now I know why I don't do drag...sheesh!)

I win a frickin' archery tournament and...

all I get is a lollipop!

Well, it was the final day for archery at Golden Gate Park through City College of San Francisco, and we were all just messing around today since we already did our final tournament (sigh--5th place this time). So the teacher had us shoot to get our averages at different distances, 40 yards, 30 yards and 20 yards. After one end at 40 yards, I shoot a 35 (out of 60), so I stop there. For 30 yards, I average 35 (30 yards has always been my worst distance for some reason, relatively speaking), and for 20 yards, I average 45. Considering only two people submitted scores from 40 yards and I whup the other guy's ass by over 25 points, I win easily.

And what do I win? Not sparkling juice like the winners of the final tournament, but a frickin' butterscotch lollipop.

At least I don't mind butterscotch. I think it was See's butterscotch, but I don't remember off-hand. It got too sweet after a while anyway.

Oh yeah, does anyone know the difference between butterscotch and caramel anyway?

Duh...

Gee, gay men respond differently to "pheromones?"

Well, considering it hasn't even been agreed upon that pheromones really exist for humans, this is an interesting development.

Here's the link.

Bad pick-up line heard at the archery field...

"I want HER to nock my arrow..."

Ok, if you don't do archery, it's not as funny. :P

Now I know why I don't take drugs...

Here's a little post from the husband about me being drugged up yesterday morning after I got my two top wisdom teeth pulled.

Weird thing at breakfast today...

So I'm having to eat soft foods until tomorrow since I got my wisdom teeth removed. Earlier this morning, I was looking for a Chinese restaurant serving rice porridge. So I've stopped by this one restaurant that just opened on Taraval and 28th Ave. in the Sunset, aptly named T-28, and ordered their breakfast special of rice porridge with dried scallops and rice noodle with combination sauce (for $3.95, too).

The porridge was pretty much what I was expecting, but the rice noodle was interesting. Dried shrimp, scallions...sauces were hoisin, Sriracha (this red spicy sauce that I've usually seen more for Vietnamese pho* more than anything, and yes, I know the site is Pho King, but I just couldn't pass it up!)...

And this brown sauce. I looked at it, looked at it again, and thought, "What the fuck...is this peanut butter?"

So I tasted it. Sure enough, peanut butter. And not just any peanut butter. Skippy creamy peanut butter! (at least they could've used Jif instead!)

Needless to say it tasted weird with the noodles. I tried eating all the ones that were surrounding the peanut butter and the peanut butter threatened to cover all of the noodles, so I had to put some on so that I had a dam for it.

At least now I can brush and floss my teeth. I was getting tired of the taste of blood on my tongue.

I also have a really disgusting story involving peanut butter, but it's better (and more appropriate) to talk about it in person. :)

I have really got to plan my schedule better...

So I just got my tattoo done two weeks ago and it's finally healed.

Of course, stupid me plans to get my upper two wisdom teeth removed today. This morning was a blur since I was completely knocked out. Thank God the husband helped me by driving me home, but god damn, I acted so stupid this morning (according to him, anyway).

So now it's a steady diet of amoxicillin and ibuprofen, supplemented with jook and arroz caldo, along with various dairy products with "active cultures" the next couple days.

I'm still glad I got the frickin' teeth removed though. They were out of alignment with my other teeth since they came out after I wore braces in junior high, and sometimes they rubbed irritatingly across the inside of my cheek. My mouth feels a lot better, but it's just irritating to have this low-level constant pain.

I'm trying to resist taking the painkillers prescribed, and hopefully I won't need them. Oh well...
