Day 1. Had 2 hrs sleep beforehand. Me and Ellis were up till 3:30am playing guitar (something I can't do in my house), playing Beetles, Eagles, old stuff and '4 more miles' and 'my body's defect' by a small band called Mothers for Angels. Hey, its my site, I can plug my band as much as poss. Ellis says their really good and release worthy. Maybe....he hasn't heard the singer yet. ha ha (joke Graham - you da man)
So anyway, first day scuba diving, I have 2 hrs kip. The Mexicans are 30 mins late, leaving me to cack my pants, thinking I had been forgotten. Eventually, they arrive and I chuck all my gear in the back and we go off to La Jolla. La Jolla is the rich part of San Diego. All the houses are mahoooosive and deep set in the hills which circle the bay
So last night, Paul has a mate come over and crash on the floor. The guy snores louder than earthquakes. Not impressed. So the next day arrives
On return to the boat, my nausea got the better of me and I left a little piece of Tel on the side of his boat. Saying that, I felt a lot better afterwards. On the way back, I stood at the front of the boat, feeling a lot better. Feeling like Leonardo Di Caprio on the Titanic, but without the hair and the redhead in tow.
There were a flock of Pelicans flying parallel to the boat most of the way back, and just before reaching port, a seal popped his head out from the ocean, displaying his newly acquired dinner. Made my day. So yeah, I'm now qualified to go scuba diving. Bring on Fiji.
What else have I been up to?
I had to pop into the STA branch in the Gaslamp Quarter downtown, to change the date of my ticket. Not in the best of moods, 'cause I slept funny and now my neck is in spasm (it really hurts). If anyone knows any remedies for spasm muscles (besides 'don't sleep on it funny), it would be appreciated. The ticket has been moved and I now leave USA on the 4 Sept. Unfortunately, I still have to go to Los Angeles to fly out, as San Diego flights don't go to Fiji
Also I watched Alien vs Predator. That is a bad ass film that appeared in theory in comic format YONKIES ago. I missed the beginning of the film due to the guy behind the counter having a 'I'm a retard' day. Also, there is no sweet popcorn in the US. When I asked for it, he looked at me like I was the retard. The fight is tomorrow. Anyway, the film rules and confirms my theory that Predator kicks ass over all living things, looks cool and rules supreme. I now know what I wanna be when I grow up.
Another thing that has come to my attention. Due to the lack of ANY cider in this country, I have had to bite the bullet and drink beer....................(ooh the shock)...... and I have to say, that it is growing on me. In at the deep end and all that!!! I've been drink Budweiser since I arrived at OB, and its not too bad anymore. Whether I will turn to the dark side for good, I am not sure, but for now, I'm not cringing when I drink. I have been drinking in a few different bars in OB, besides The Stick. Ellis tends to stick to The Stick (ha ha get it?.........I'll get my coat), but all of the woman are up on Newport Ave (5 blocks away), so I've been out with his mates
Other random things?
A horny couple jumping bones on the beach late one night. I wasn't staring THAT long, but they acquired quite an audience. They didn't seem to care either. A future in porn awaits.
Strip clubs. 18 to 21. Fully nude. 21+ only the tops. Seems odd but makes sense. I just have to mention that I found this out chatting to a taxi driver and have not been to any strip clubs since Beefs stag doo.......and I still haven't paid that night off. Ha ha.
Anyway, will update again soon. Hope everyone is keeping well.
