Just wanted to write an update on the Christmas on the Prado. I went last night and had an exceptional time. It was once again an excerise in gluttony as I walked around trying anything and every thing that sounded good. Italian meatball sandwich, Swedish Meatballs, some sort of rice and lamb dish. It was great. I sat down and listend to a piper from the House of Scotland as I ate my meatball sandwich. All I needed was a glass of red wine...but that was a different part of the event :) I also enjoyed a funnel cake (batter poured into hot oil, then covered in powdered sugar, strawberry and chocolate syrup...ummm yumm.

That at least I could see me hanging up on my wall at home. Oh, one other "object" that caught my eye. It was suppose to be an aluminum ladder that the artist had made into a lounge chair....I swear it looked just like one of the folding ladders you can buy at Home Depot. In fact I have one in my garage. The next time I have a hoy paloy party, I will just unfold it in my living room :)

My favorite part of the night was a group of bell ringers that was performing in the San Diego Historical Society museum. The music was so delicate and beautiful. I brought my new camera last night and was playing with it (still have a lot to learn) and took a video clip. (This camera is great! Pictures "and" video with sound! I can't see a place to upload a vid clip here, so I put it on my Myspace page.
This tower cracks me up. It looks …
