Rainy Days

What is it with California these days? It's been raining almost non-stop since the beginning of the week. Not that I'm complaining - I love rain, it makes me want to cuddle up in bed and be all sentimental. But when you have to get up in the morning and haul ass to work, then it's a different story. Just the 5-minute drive to John's was torture; I could barely see the road ahead of me, and there were big puddles everywhere that had me splashing the sidewalks as I drove by.

Anyway, it's the last day of the year, finally! Tonight I'm saying goodbye to 2004 at Tito Gary's, with Trisha and probably Jean Michel. It sucks though that I can't get all liquored up - rumor has it that there will be checkpoints all over Wilshire Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd. Geez! Do the cops like to spend New Year's Eve like that? Why don't they just go home and get drunk as well? Haha! But yeah, all for safety's sake. It makes sense.

Things have been gone pretty well this week. John's away for New Year's (he left Tuesday) so it's been relaxed here. It's a welcome change from the flurry of tasks I had to handle before Christmas. That was crazy. Now there's just traffic school for me to do when I'm not busy with anything else.

I also climbed a lot this week, and I think I'm going to go at least twice a week now. I've become friends with this Polish guy Greg, and we've climbed and bouldered together twice. He's such fun, and he's introduced me to his Polish friend Kalina, who's super nice as well. Anyway, those three visits did me good, because last night I was able to climb a 5.10B! Yay! Progress! :)

So here's my 2005 toast to myself: To friends, new and old, to climbing, to music and playing the piano, and to more new experiences!

Advertising can be a big problem otherwise. A lot of companies reserve a big chunk of their budgets to cover marketing expenditures.
