So I am supposed to be camping in the Cuyamaca forest right now. That's right, I said "supposed to be", which means simply, I'm not. Turns out that Southern California sucks, and that extends to campsites. All the sites were full and you are required to call 5 days in advance to get a reservation (of course I found this out by calling 4 days in advance). Each of the campsites also have a limited number of "first come, first served" sites that are open at noon each day. So I high-tailed my little booty out to the Julian area to try to knab one of these spots. I got off work at three and drove straight out there. I'm not quite sure how, but I got to the campground in less than 45 minutes only to find out that all the spots were taken, as well as all the other campgrounds in San Diego county, evidently. So yeah, I am "supposed to be" camping right now.
Instead of camping in the Cuyamacas, I am lounging next to the pool at Tamara's parent's house in Vacaville. By the way, if you aren't sure where Vacaville is, it's 45 minutes north of San Francisco. And if you don't know where San Franscisco is, it's about an 8 hour drive from San Diego. That's right, Tamara and I decided to drive up to Northern California for two days. We decided to do this around 5 o'clock yesterday, and we left San Diego at 7. I think we arrived in Vacaville around 3 o'clock this morning, and it is now 7:30am. So I have decided that I am a spontaneus guy. Tam and I discussed it, and we think it is my spontaneity that makes me so attractive to the ladies, but I digress.
Tam and I have no plans for the weekend other than sitting next to the pool, and that is fine with me, I am just happy to be out of San Diego as I have been having some extra rough days lately and just sitting 10 hours away from San Diego feels nice right now. Also I'm going to check out some Tattoo shops and see if I can get some work done HOLY CRAP THE POOL JUST SQUIRTED ME! WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT ALL ABOUT! Seriously, some water just flew out of the far side of the pool DIRECTLY at me, I am baffled. DANGIT, there's pool water on my laptop! This is hilarious! I AM SOO NOT EVEN JOKING! Ok, back to what I was saying, crap, what was I saying? Oh yeah, tattoo, WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED!???? Tam's going to DIE when I tell her that her pool squirted water directly at me from 15 feet away. Tattoo, focus Ryan, dangit. Anyhow, I might get a tattoo if the rates are reasonable. THAT WAS FRICKIN' CRAZY, I CAN'T GET OVER THAT. HOLY SH**, IT DID IT AGAIN! This time it shot water 8 feet high the other direction. This is reminding me of that movie, what was it, Sphere? Sorry about the cuss word, that was an accident, won't happen again! Ok, I am going to wake up the neighborhood with laughter if that happens again, seriously, this is freaky! Tam's pool is trying to kill me with chlorinated water! The worst part about it is that there is this semi-transparent pool cover on that I can't really see through, I'm thinking maybe there is some kind of animal swimming around in the water? Maybe a huge toad or something causing trouble, the pool has squirted three times now, I'm going to go investigate...
OK, I found out what is going on. Let me know if ya'all want to know the conclusion to this little mystery, or if you'd like to let your imagination run wild!
