AJ went away... MUNNY came to stay.

Yeah, so yesterday I drove AJ to the airport and she took off to go to Costa Rica for a month. She's going to stay with a host family and go to school to study Spanish. She took 3 semesters already at HVCC when we were in NY so she's not starting at zero. Hopefully it'll be a really good experience for her and she'll be all kinds of fluent when she returns.

After I dropped her off I went up to Daly City to check on the bus. I figured I was practically there anyways, why not bug them?!?! Well, they haven't looked at the bus yet. It's been sitting there for a week. SIGH. I shall commence daily callings to ensure that it does not sit there for 6 weeks with no changes like it did last time. I like Tassi a lot - they are good trustworthy guys... but sometimes I don't know how they stay in business.


I headed up to SF afterwards to see if I could alleviate my disappointing state of mind by consuming some useless toys at Kidrobot. I believe I was successful. I bought one of the giant plain MUNNY figures so I can paint it all spaceJASE style. Give it my own "flava". They come with extra things inside and I got some cool gear. We'll see how that goes... people get crazy with their MUNNY:

Maybe someone will want to buy mine for $500. LOL (Jeff Soto does some pretty crazy stuff... Google image search = sweeeeeet!)

After that I met up with Drew and we watched the USA/Italy soccer game at a bar. It was good, even though we only tied. At least the USA wasn't shut out too early. They still have a chance.

Then I came home and checked on the cats. They were fine and a little surprised to see me. They know the suitcase and I'm sure they thought we'd both be gone for a while. We'll see if they show signs of missing AJ in the future. I will undoubtedly forget "soft-food time" at some point.

I then went to meet Craig & Jess & Greg at "Prince of Wales" in San Mateo. They were having a bite to eat before going to see Nacho Libre. We played darts and then they headed out to the movie. (I passed - maybe I'll go see CARS at the theater.)

I came home and played games until I was sufficiently tired. I think I did a pretty good job of keeping myself busy minus my wife. Sunday has gone OK too. Groceries and laundry today. I have to make some dinner and then maybe some LEGO building to pass the evening.

I'll try to update more frequently so AJ can keep up with the activities too.

how are you going to paint your 'Munny'? (What color/pattern?) You went more places and ran more errands than I do in a week!! You were one busy guy! Hope they get your van fixed, J....

I will when I paint him - I still have to design him! I have the feeling that I will be purchasing more... it's gonna be fun!

Dude! I want one! You should totally dress it up as a chicken, little feathers everywhere!

Munny... it's like the BEST business scam... ahem... idea ever! Sell an undecorated toy for a lot of money... Damn it... I wish I came up with the idea!

But seriously... we'd love to see what design ideas you come up with...

Indeed it is a good scam - I wish I had a plastic, or whatever it is, factory so I could make my own... I like the idea that I can do whatever I want with it.

The chicken idea sounds good!
