315/365 its hard to be a dolfan

been a Miami Dolphins fan for as long as I can remember – since 1983. Gotta be honest with you – its been tough. Never won anything in that 30 year span and it gets harder and harder to watch – especially like the first half of the Monday Night game tonight. Not sure how it will end up, but the Fins are playing the the WORST team in the NFL (Bucs) and the Dolphins are making them look like Super Bowl champions. Meanwhile this bullying news is just ridiculous and I can’t believe how dysfunctional this team is. My vote is to bring back Marino…


314/365 i am probably an idiot

why? Because I have spent a good 5 hours researching “mileage runs” over the past week and I finally gave in and bought 3 today. What is a mileage run you ask? Well, it is when you fly somewhere with no purpose other than to earn miles. Why I am doing this? Because I am an idiot. And because once you taste Diamond status, it is hard to give up. I had to decide between going all out and flying to Moscow and back with no more than a 2 hour layover anywhere, or break it up and do 3 separate day trips. I chose the later because I wasn’t sure what 30 straight of hours of economy seating would do to my body. And I found a $199 fare to Maui and back which kicked everything off.

313/365 secret slide

313/365 secret slide, originally uploaded by ajbrusteinthreesixfive.

in Bernal Heights, a neighborhood in San Francisco, there is a secret slide all the way at the top of a hill in a tucked away residential area. Apparently the city tried to tear it down and the citizens came to its defence and improved it and take care of it. And it is supposed to be the biggest slide in San Francisco. Anyway, I found it somehow and we visited. It is awesome. And someone donated two rocket sleds to ride down on, making it even awesomer and extremely fast. Too fast for Kylie but Nyla loved it. Of course, as expected, Nyla got hurt, but as far as I am concerned, the pain is worth it for this slide (and this is what happens when Daddy has the girls by himself for the day…)
