If you get a chance you gotta try the '6 dollar burger' at 'Carls Jr.' BLOODY OARSOME!!!
There's one on 'my' road! They do low carb options and a premium salad menu. It's like having no-alcohol lager...

It's a very vivid picture you paint. Wish I was with you for the sun and sea. Not so sure about your room neighbours or the black flies. Daniel was pleased about the Villa match too. When's Anja joining you? Much love, mum
She's here from May 6th

Sounds bloody marvelous bud. We will try to check your travels out regularly. Don`t get caught speeding in the hire car. Aces!
They throw away the key if you get stopped for speeding. The steering wheel is right in the way of the speedometer tho'...

ere... when you get to SF there's a great cd shoppe called 'Amoeba Records' it's on Haight/Ashbury - loadsa cool shops and eateries thereabouts too. ooh and if you head back 'into town' (i.e. towards the bottom of the hill) there's a great pub 'Mad Dog on the Fog' a few blocks down - run by a (brummie ex-pat) Villa fan - if you need a bit of a Premiership fix. An pint a o' London Pride, natch. (Shocking WC's tho')
You had me at "ere"...

I don't know what I find more entertaining - your blog or these messages!! And you know you're just jealous of Aragorn... my future husband... now, where does he live again??? tee hee!
He's married to Steven Tyler, isn't he?
From Rob - Friday, 11th April 2008, 15:26 (GMT)
Glad to see that you are still enjoying yourself. If you get a minute can you nip over to the Napa Valley and tell them to get bottling up for when i'm over in June.

There was something on the news that you were coming over. I think they've heard that it was you and I who drank four bottles of red in one afternoon. 'Napa Wine Lake Set to Reduce'!
From Loops & the B Team - Monday, 14th April 2008, 10:58 (GMT)
You jammy git - nice one on on having the time of your life. I should do a blog about Small Heath, though it probably wouldn't be as funny. There'd be be more chavs though ......
Played for and got...

I see you are trying to disguise your eating cheeseburgers, fries & onion rings with witty anecdotes about sour dough bread & root beer! I'm not fooled for an instant... xxx
Scurrilous lies...

I like to think of the baby Jesus as a litte kind of mischevious badger…
And that's why you're not allowed anything sharp in your cell.
From Badger Madge - Monday, 21st April 2008, 12:47 (GMT)
Did someone say Badger? xx
I believe so...!
From t'wife - Monday, 21st April 2008, 19:28 (GMT)
In-N-Out Burger? & so it begins.....!!!
And that's what happened: in, and then out! You'll see when you come over...
From Sah - Wednesday, 23rd April 2008, 20:26 (GMT)
The blog's brrrrilliant, Simon. You've painted some very good mental pictures. Not mental as in mentalist. Mental as in of the ment... Aaaaanyway...
So glad you're having a good time.
Do they not sell camera leads in that Hamerica then?
Hey! I never thought to actually buy some leads here...Gawd!

Howdy partner, just googled Goleta beach OMG (thats oh my god in text speak by the way). Can't remember Cali lookng that good! Mind you it was winter and I was hanging with a crazy guy from Denvar and a mexican…
Nursing hangover at the mo, popped out to watch Vampire Weekend last night (mediocha, epiphone casino playing new york punk pop etc). Which brings me to the question… where are all your hangovers?????

It sure is a purdy place! I don't have hangovers 'cos I'm a professional...!
From Joe - Saturday, 3rd May 2008, 12:46 (GMT)
It's good to see you're having a good time, and you have your priorities right. There's been a hell of a lot more about your culinary antics than your six-stringed desires.
Oh, and seething with envy at the Tommy Aldridge spotting. He's been touring with Lizzy, dontchaknow...
Anyway, I hope it all goes well for you. Bring me back a Les Paul ;)
And he played with Ozzy. And Whitesnake! And loads more! A major thrill! A Les Paul? Sure...
