More Dallas Stories

Ok, the Albertson's story...

We stop by Albertson's in Rockwall (outside of Dallas) to grab some liquor.  As we were going through the aisles, we were wondering if any of us had our Albertson's club cards.  I just said I'll give my phone number.  After saying that, I was telling them that it's most likely the clerk will ask what area code is that.

So we're checking out, the clerk asks for a club card, I ask if I could give my phone number.  She says go for it, and I start reciting my number with percise diction.  Well, I guess Texans don't really pronounce the "t" in eight, because when I actually said eight, both the clerk and the cute bag boy thought I said eight-two. 

Then they asked what area code was 510.  I told them San Francisco East Bay.  They were like, you're from California?!?, and then the cute bag boy asked why we voted for both Schwarzenegger and Kerry.  Oh boy... I was like, first off, the entire Bay Area region did not vote for Schwarzenegger or for the recall.  Second, I know this is Bush country, but Bush is a retard!  I thought it was funny that Texans thought we were retarded for voting for Arnold.  How sad is my own state?

After that exchange, the cute bag boy asked if we needed help out.  I diligently said no, but kinda wondered if he asked everyone that.  As Adam, Dan, and I were leaving, Dan said that he just wanted to gag him and have his way with him.  LOL

Flight back... Flight from Austin to Phoenix was boring.  PNX to SJC tough, had a interesting convo with a Santa Cruz High senior girl and a lady who was visiting family in Los Gatos.


WIR in just a bit

WIR

Last Wednesday
Went and saw Steph and Tyler visiting from PA at San Jose Bar and Grill.  We were in time for happy hour, so cheap ass drinks and 2 for 1 appetizers were pleantiful!  I hate going to that place during the late night, but it's actually pretty good for happy hour.  I mainly chatted with Steph, Amber, Roshnee (who was only there for a bit during her lunch hour), and Elena.

Thursday
Went to VF and went around sporting off the shirt Adam got me from a porn shop in Dallas.  I love this shirt :P

Then went to KoC.  Only got three songs in as the list was already full by 9PM!  There were a lot of new songs on the list and since I had my laptop in my car, I updated my personal list.  I sang Vindicated - Dashboard Confessional, She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5, and Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand.  Drove up to Hercules afterwards.

Friday
Spent Xmas Eve at my aunt/uncle's house in Vallejo.  Low key and usual stuff... dinner and DVDs

XMAS Day
Went to the cemetary in Lafayette to visit my grandparents.  Then lunch at my cousins' in Concord.  After that, cemetary in San Pablo for my dad and other grandparents.  Again, low-key day.

Sunday
Shopping in San Francisco!  And boy-scouting, as Blake puts it

Monday
Went to SJ because I left my driver license renewal form there, then went to the Concord DMV where I had my appointment.  I was eligible for renewal by mail, but I didn't want to be stuck with my photo when I was 16 when I would be 28!

After DMV, went to Sunvalley.  Found a couple of shirts and AnF that were on sale.

Tuesday
Went to Sunvalley again, with my mom and sister.  Made some returns, bumped into some DLS/CHS people.

Later on, had dinner at Chili's with Anthony, Mary, Paul, Dan, Anna, Vaughn, and Szeto.  After, we went to La Scala in Walnut Creek, sans the latter two from the group.  Saw more DLS/CHS people... mostly from Company (theatre).  I also bumped into Charles there.

...To be cont'd.
