Well the Southland sure got a blast of heat this weekend.Â A high pressure system has parked itself over the Southwest US and that produced an off-shore flow with temps in the mid 90s, some just barely to the century mark!
Many of us sought refuge in air conditioned places!! I had a haircut this morning at a new salon. I have decided to try a new stylist, one who was much closer than my old one. Don’t get me wrong, I have been going to Delila for almost 2 years now, but she moved to a Salon in Brea and that makes for a long commute.Â I went to try a male stylist. His name is Angelo and I met him on a dating website. I saw that he was a barber/stylist and I told myself to check him out.Â Well I set up an appointment last Saturday but had to cancel, so I re-scheduled for today at 10am.
The Crew Salon is in The Lab in Costa Mesa. The Lab is best described as the anti-mall.Â When I got there, I announced myself and said I had a 10 o’clock with Angela. So the receptionist crossed something out with her pen and said it would be a few minutes.Â Turns out, the receptionist who was to reschedule me, rescheduled me but for Saturday the 19th instead! I needed a haircut!Â So they offered Lindsay who had a 10 o’clock cancellation. At ths point, I had still not met Angelo.Â So I got my haircut and it was kinda awkward as it could be with a new stylist. You never know what questions to ask or what to talk about. Luckily she asked alot of questions and we talked about how I was supposed to have a cut with Angelo, but it got all messed up.Â Little did I know that Angelo was the guy cutting hair in the station next to Lindsay.Â The Crew Salon is a hip and younger kinda place so there were alot of hip guys in there. The guy getting his haircut next to me was kinda cute, so I got all conscious and didn’t look over very much.
After the cut, I went to see my dad and see how he was doing.Â He was scheduled for a kidney transplant that had to be cancelled for various reasons.Â Suffice it to say, Dad was being stubborn and tried to skip a few procedures.Â I’ll leave it at that.
After lunch, I went back to the office to work on a system for a new hire starting on Monday. When I walked in, I noticed that the shipment I got ready for FedEx was still sitting in the lobby! WHAT>!??!Â That system had to get to our East Coast office on Monday. Did you know you can ship with FedEx on a Saturday and it will get there on Monday for no extra charge?? Who knew! Well I had to haul the boxes to the Irvine FedEx office. Completing that task, I went back to the office for about 30 minutes and got a short overview of World of Warcraft. I have never played, bit alot of people I know, play it.
At this point, the thermometer was registering 95 in Irvine.Â It was a very long week and I was pretty much still tired after getting up this morning – so I headed home, turned on the AC and took a long nap!
I got up a while ago and watching Chefography on the Food Network.Â Showcased was Duff Goldman of Ace of Cakes and his journey to how he became a cake decorator and star of his show Ace of Cakes. There is alot about Duff that I didn’t know.He got his start in cake decorating in the most unusual way possible. He was a great set of friends that work for him in the bakery and I tune in every week to watch each episode.
Tomorrow I will go in the office for about an hour to finish up the system for the new desiner starting tomorrow. I’ll do it early before it gets hot again. Temps should be back to normal (70) on Monday.
P.S. I missed Battlestar Galactica last night. I thought I had my TiVi setup to record it on a Season Pass…but it didn’t. Now I missed it and since NBC Universal (owner of the SciFi Channel) severed its reationship ith iTunes, I couldn’t download it eaither.Â I’m bummmed.
