Small world. I've done a little top roping in Rock City, if we're talking about the same Mt. Diablo. Beautiful up there. I'm long past my rock climbing career now though. Currently beginning pilates class to get some muscle tone back. Big Grin

Yup, we're going to do more exploring over there next weekend. I'd like to do more climbing, but that's the first time I've completed climbing a rock.

Are you two in the bay area as well? I think Moms is in SF. I'm in Berkeley. Where are you .. unless you're in witness protection, of course.

And now I have no idea where my phone is even though I was using it just a while ago.

EDIT: It was under some sheet music. Facepalm

RE: Random thoughts
A summary of a situation / conversation I had a few days ago that's been on my mind given current events:

- Other officer brings a new arrival to the protective custody range I'm assigned to and says "put him in cell (insert random number here)."

The guy he brings in is Vietnamese, and the old white guy in the cell, upon looking out his cell window, screams "I don't want any fucking natives in my cell with me!"

Inuit guy in different cell screams "What white piece of shit just said that? Who's in that cell? I'll fuck you up when we get out!

As they continue screaming various racial obscenities at each other, and with my primary objective to just get the guy placed somewhere that won't result in a fight, I say "He's not native, he's Asian."

Guy in original cell says "That's fine. Just no natives, (racial slur for black people)s, or (racial slur for Arabs)s. (Racial slur for Asians)s are cool though.

By now the Inuit guy is in a full blown rage and I spend the rest of the day trying to micromanage the yard/phone/shower schedule to make sure they don't come into contact.

Pretty standard stuff, really. Yes, even in Canada.

The eggplant in my red tofu curry looks like a Graboid from the movie Tremors Hobo

*Pic of Graboid, not my actual eggplant Wink

I'd have to practice driving there by myself, haven't driven anywhere that far yet, but that'd be fun. Tongue
