    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I appreciate the ride from Santa Rosa all the way out to the coast on River Road. Tons of vineyards, then you pass by Colonel Armstrong's Redwood area for a nice little stroll, keep going, and you get about a quarter mile from the coast and you see this absolutely incredible view of the Russian River Valley. God it is gorgeous. And then Goat Rock beach is awesome. And the best oysters imaginable are just down the road.

    God I miss California so much. [​IMG]

    Hey, I got you this. I hope you enjoy it because this place is really overpriced.

    Do you shop at Vons? I remember going there when I was young and them bringing our groceries to the car for us. I thought that was kinda cool.

    If you start to feel homesick while you are here, give me a ring. I can get you into Costco.

    I can teach you how to Costco Korean style if you are down. We'll make the most mountainous of onion, ketchup, and mustard mountains.

    I love Santa Barbara. I haven't been in awhile, but last time it was a 3 day epic debaucherous bender followed by a 3 day stint in jail. Fun times. Seriously. It was a great fucking time.

    It's pretty straight forward actually. Partied almost every waking moment in SB from Thursday through early Sunday morning when, for some reason that I'm still uncertain about to this day, I decided to run from the police. Ended with me lowering my shoulder and plowing over a cop, stumbling and then getting lightly beat for a short period of time with their night sticks (pre-taser era). Didn't get out until Tuesday when I was released with a few hundred dollar fine and time served.

    You know, typical bad boy shit. /impolyt.
