so we're flying right now. we're in the air, on a plane, flying in the sky. ...and there is still wireless internet. wtf? last time we flew some people were using the internet but you had to pay like 10 bucks for it but apparently for the holidays virgin airlines is letting us use the internets for free! great job! on this futuristic touch screen on the seat in front of me, i'm looking at a map of the US and a little illustration of a plane on the border of utah and idaho which is where we are at this very moment. dang. anyway. i for one am fucking pleased to be on my way back to the east.

that being said, this weekend ben and i got to housesit for this lady named Gianna who I've known for a very long time. She lives in the East Bay in Albany. We took the BART to her house. The BART is kinda like a subway but even faster and it goes above ground and underground and is super speedy. Her house was very cozy. We went to this ultra rad nature preserve type thing. To get there we walked underneath the freeway and across the train tracks. We watched a train go by. It had been foggy and shittyish out all day as we started heading towards our destination at about mid afternoonish. There were all different trails and pathways to take through the preserve. The further you walked, the further out you were on this long peninsula surrounded by water. There were endless found object sculptures, bad and good graffiti, and hidden hobo encampments. We settled down on a beach on the farthest side of the strip. There were tons of concrete slabs and dope sculptures. We cracked open a bottle of wine to share and the sun was beginning to come out. I started collected all the broken glass i could find and we ended up making our own little collaboration sculpture out of things we could find. We stayed there until sunset and then made our way back to our house. but dang! east bay rules. at least what we saw of it. we wish we could move to a house in oakland right this minute.  anyway: chuckie you gotta come to this place when you come to visit because it's the dope shit. anyway! tra la la. getting into boston at 6:45 tonight and hopefully heading up to portland on friday.  hellz yea.

can you believe it!

this is the sculpture lady thing ben and i made
