New Years

Tuesday, July 27th, 2004

On New Years we had a party at the Jenks house with Doris, Aisha and Andrea. The first part of the evening was our Christmas gift exchange, where Doris and Aisha got to read the Harry Potter stories Andrea wrote and Chrissie put together. After Christmas was over, our New Years party consisted of some fun drinks, and then we did spa stuff. Chrissie dyed her hair, or attempted to. Evidently she should have been more careful, because instead of mixing the dye solution together, she put the conditioner in. Eric wondered how something that was colored white was supposed to turn her hair red. Well, it didn’t. Eric had to go to the store to get another box. But the red was cute =) Everyone else did facials.

Our Future Plans

Tuesday, July 27th, 2004

We decided it was time to make some plans for our immediate future. We took the opportunity to evaluate where we were at and set up a rough timeline looking forward. So, here are some of the high points:

We are both really enjoying our jobs.

I want to see Symphoniq through (either to success or failure).

We will be looking for a place to buy in the bay area, and we plan to move there by March 2005.

We will start having kids in 2-3 years.

We will look to move back to Oklahoma in 5-6 years.

That’s the short version of a very long conversation, but now you know what we have in mind for our future. =)

Bay To Breakers

Tuesday, July 27th, 2004

Bay to Breakers is a seven mile walk through the heart of San Francisco. We started on the Eastern part by the Bay, and walk to the Breakers of the Pacific Ocean. It is basically a big street party and a crazy parade, with people dressing up or dressing way down. There were people in crazy wigs, one group of people wearing sharks fins as hats, and one huge group had a huge tiki hut on wheels that took like twenty people to move. It had a bar and they were making mixed drinks. Lots of elvises. People throwing tortillas. Why tortillas? We’ll never know. The winner of the race finished before we got past the starting line. It was a very nice walk, especially once we were past the hilly part and into the Golden Gate Park, which is beautiful. The ocean was wonderful too, but we were a bit too tired to really appreciate it. It took us 3 hours and 42 minutes.
