Where’s the Cheese?

So, here’s the news. I’m up in Northern California visiting my family. Tomorrow we are celebrating the marriage of my eldest daughter Diane to her awesome guy Sam. Cheers! 😂 I’m even giving a teensy speech, which I typed up, printed out, and have squashed in the bottom of my purse. It’s a bit cheesy, but I don’t know the audience and decided not to subject them to my edgy Southern California jokes.

Last night we went out for Mexican food here on Alameda. Diane and I split an enormous plate of nachos with extra guac. They put shrimp on the nachos! This was odd and yet delicious. But… where was the cheese? At first I was having so much fun eating the shrimp I forgot to notice. Diane had a gigantic cocktail so she was a little oblivious too. But then she said hey where’s the cheese? We poked around in case it had melted into invisibility, but no. No cheese.

Bizarre.

Anyway, it’s tons of fun staying at the kids’ new place with their doggie and kitty and my younger daughter, her hubby, and my sweet little granddaughter too. That was just for one day/night though. Today we’re leaving for the hotel, which is out in Marin or something, for more family fun times. I’m not sure exactly what’s going on, but I will just show up, smile, and do what I’m told. I’ve heard there will be Italian food, which, one assumes, will contain lots of yummy yummy cheese. 😍

But it is Northern California, a strange land where they have just outlawed manholes in Berkeley, so one never knows.

  2. Yay, Mexican food! Maybe they were trying to be true to pre-Hispanic cooking at Alameda (LOL). Good luck with your speech!

  3. Sounds like you are in your glory, spending time with your loved ones. So happy for you. About the manhole covers, what’s the rationale??

  4. You had me worried with the Berkeley story. If they outlaw manholes, how are the understreet dwellers whom I discovered when I was fourteen during some eldritch ritual under the new moon going to come out to feed? But then I saw they just changed the language. Much relieved. Language is a living thing and must be killed now and then.

  5. They live in Alameda? That’s a strange place. It’s affordable, yet you have views of the City. Weather’s always nice too. Not sure what’s going on there.

  8. I’m stuck on nachos without cheese. That’s just so…wrong! Cheese is life!
    Yeah, Northern California is a different country from SoCal. Obviously…the cheese….

  13. I’m kind of happy there was no cheese as cheese and shrimp doesn’t seem like a good combo. Anyway, hope the wedding is/was a wonderful event for everyone! 😊

    Don t worry about the speech being cheesy , it’s best to play safe.
    All the best to the new couple.

    I like your resolution to smile and do as you’re told. That is the course of action I intend following when my turn comes.

  15. I love nachos…but no cheese…just wrong. The shrimp sound like fun though…a little kick of the sea with the land.
