A Normal Day out in Sacramento with Melanie.....Really, it was! LOL

Well, after my excitement on Thursday with my lovely work computer dying, I didn't have much I could do workwise until the IT guy called to meet up and give me a new hard drive while he tried to fix mine. I worked as much as I could and Melanie and I decided to continue on the Guy Fieri tour of Northern California and found ourselves at a place called the Squeeze Inn which is known for their burgers. Now, I would post photos of the most awesome burger in the world here but yeah, Melanie has the pics and hasn't shared yet! LOL. This place was truly a dive......it had a counter of like 12 seats and most of the line stretched outside since there was room for like 5 people inside!! HA HA. Mel and I split a burger since we had planned to do dinner that night somewhere in downtown.
Next we had the lovely priviledge of spending 2 hours with my IT guy at one of the district offices while he reimaged a new hard drive for me. YEAH......Uhhhh, wait. Nooooooooo. Great, my original hard drive....say bye bye. Yeah, much of my stuff - *poof* gone. Lovely. So, while we were sitting there, Melanie utilized the opportunity to put her head down and take a nap! LOL. Melissa919 and Kristy would be impressed...if only their students would settle down and take such good naps! I spent the time answering text messages from various peeps that Mel sent the burger pic to at lunch. And no, Mel didn't snore or drool!! LOL.
Next, it was time for Melanie's daily dessert stop.
We spotted several cool stores in the nearby vicinity so we wandered around - one was this awesome candy shop (see accompanying pics...OMG did they have incredible brittle offerings). We also stopped in the Hollywood memoribilia store and Melanie found all her Star Wars stuff so she was in heaven.
Next, it was off to the awesome looking costume shop we parked by. But wait, what's this?!?! Buffalo Bob's - a Buffalo and ice cream...Julie (Pinchora) is a huge buffalo wing and ice cream fan.....we thought this was all too fitting. Of course, what's a bull statue picture without Melanie and I trying to climb the bull. Actually, I believe it was a bit more sexual in nature but we will keep it "g" rated! :-) Mel has those pics so I will update when I get them! LOL.
We left the store and were going to head to shop for an outfit for going out that night and I go to get in the car, and WTF?!?! What is on my windshield....a parking ticket! Uuuuuugh. I thought we parked in two hour parking but there were meters hidden behind the post. Grrrrrrrrrrr. $30 for expired meter parking! Oh well, nothing I can do now.
We stop at the frozen yogurt place, Big Spoon, and OMG...this was the BEST place ever. They had a candy WALL. Yes, wall. Sugar free yogurt options - absolutely delicious. Sugar free and fat free - can't go wrong there! Of course, adding things like cheesecake bites somewhat negate the healthier yogurt but it's all about balance! Mel has decided this is the best frozen yogurt she's had! *YEAH* My master plan to subconsciously get her to move to Northern Cali is working. :-)
After shopping and buying lots of things neither of us would wear that night, we head back to my house and realize we are obviously not going out to dinner anywhere as we are full and getting tired from being out all afternoon.
On our way back to Rick's house to drop him off, we stop at what appears to be a local legend - haunted house! OMG, I had heard there was a haunted house in Sacramento but never knew where it was.
I hop into bed.
