I need one of these, and one of these

Today i got to ride in a helicopter, in a Porsche 911, and a Porsche Boxter.

But what i really wanted was the Porsche Carrera GT, and I'll take the helicopter too while I'm at it.

we went on a rally today with some really nice cars. I got to go up in a helicopter to get some footage of the cars taking off from the starting point. We drove to Palms Springs, had lunch, and drove back. It was very fun, but a long day and i'm exhausted.

Now i need to go back to work to start saving money for my GT. Its only $500,000, but isn't it so pretty?

National Bike to Work day

Today I did something I've been meaning to do for going on 6 years now. I've always said it would be fun to bike into work one day. I live some distance away from work, but always thought it would be fun to do it at least once.

Well today I did it. I biked to work. 31 miles. Oceanside to San Diego. It was great. It took me a while, and i rode it on mountain bike not a roadbike. But it was a lot of fun, and i think i'll do it more often.


P.S. Going up Torrey Pines grade at the end of the ride sucks... a lot...

in looking for a better deal on boots i found my exact boots on ebay.. on sale for 170 bucks.. so.. am i the idiot who paid 70 dollars for three dollar boots, or am i a genius who paid 70 dollars for 170 dollar boots?

i'm torn..

yesterday my ben took me shopping.. and at urban outfitters ben bought me the perfect pair of red boots..
i have been looking for a pair of red boots for a while.. and these are the perfect pair.. and i love them..
but there is a problem..
while trying on my boots with different outfits last night, i noticed a sticker on the bottom.. the sticker explains that these boots are a part of a 'vintage' line which means that they either used to be something else and were remade into boots, or they used to be someone else's boots before they were mine..
it didn't take me long to realize what had happened.. some urban outfitter executive was at a flea market, saw my boots on sell for three dollars and knew that they could take them back to urban outfitters and sell them for 70 bucks..
and now i can't keep my perfect red boots because they make me that stupid person who bought a three dollar pair of boots for 70 dollars...

and me without my camera

I always think i should take my camera with me, but then never want to carry it around. I really need a camera phone i guess, but i always quietly make fun of all those groups of people with them taking pictures of whatever.

anyway, yesterday i was in Hollywood attending the OnHollywood event and i met Tom Green and the guys from American Chopper. Nice guys. But no pictures
