lorelei and rory?

Go to that link below and check all the new comments on the whale names. HC will be glad to see that Lorelai and Rory has gotten two votes. Delta and Dawn seems to have won out for their names on the local news, which is think is at least better than Rio and Vista. Looks like they were swimming towards the ocean but then they missed Sac.

What a weekend! Gballs party kicked off the summer in the best way possible. Knock Knock channeled the power of the airbrushed white visor and delivered a searing set, and the unnamed band made an auspicious debut. It sounds like both shows in Davis were amazing. The Lavender Diamond show at the Independent was good, but that space was about twice as large as they needed, which really sucked the energy out of the room.

And then yesterday, I read Ethan Frome (wouldn't it be rad if that was a link to the Ethan Frome myspace?) and everyone else went to the Pipas show, which sounded really good also.

By the way, I had another excellent meal at Pho Bac Hoa Viet on Broadway last night, I just feel the need to mention that to counteract all the badmouthing it gets. We got chicken bun and rare steak pho and they were both excellent and served quickly.

The meal at Pho Bac was good but I heard people talking in Vietnamese in the kitchen and also a table nearby wasn't bussed. One star.

It's almost like those 2 turtles were just another brick in the wall. Shine on you crazy turtles.

I'm not really very proud of this, but I guess this is finally the time (and the forum) to come clean:
I had two newts in an aquarium when I was about 10. They ate frozen brine shrimp and swam around and I thought they were so much cooler than just having fish. Unfortunately, I named them Olivia and John. That's "Olivia Newt and John" Try saying it out loud.

Sigh.
Sorry.

i may have mentioned in this forum before that we had two turtles when i was a kid named ike and tina turtle. my parents are not usually this clever, so it must have been a flash of inspiration. these turtles were also abandoned to the backyard for reasons that i can't recall.

maybe it was their incessant arguing, and their tendencies towards domestic violence?

the turtles, i mean....
