I kind of forgot to post April's photos in April, oh dear me, so, I guess now is as good a time as any.

April Photographs
Monday April 5, 2013_Cindy and I drove out to Andersen's Pea Soup Restaurant located along the Pacheco Pass for a little visit with Cindy's sister, Christy, and her brother-in-law, Don, as they were driving from Arizona, where they spend half the year, to Oregon, where they spend the other half.
          They had just purchased a new rig and OMG were they thrilled. It is pretty stunning even if I know I'd have much difficulty living in one despite the fact that it really is kind of nicer than my house.

Tuesday April 30, 2013_Books and vids
Exploring Hubble and My Favorite Universe are beloved repeats on the viddie front.
The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov was my bookclub pic which, frankly, didn't go over very well. These are NOT softcore science fiction women let alone hardcore. Live and have preconceived notions confirmed :(( Paradiso by Dante is the third book in his The Divine Comedy, the other two, Inferno and Purgatorio, I read last year.

And May Photographs
Saturday May 11, 2013_David, Franceen, Paul, Lauren and Martin. We met with Paul, Franceen and Martin, the Anderson's, at yes...The Spaghetti Factory, for dinner (we got to sit in the trolly car!!!) before we headed off to the theater. We hadn't seen the Anderson's in probably nine years so it was wonderful to catch up with them.

Left Photograph_The Adobe Building we walked by on our way from The Spaghetti Factory to the theater. The little logos change direction constantly, which is fun, but this photo also gives an idea of downtown San Jose.
Right Photograph_The Center for the Performing Arts where we saw Billy Elliot, which we loved loved loved. I HIGHLY recommend it!!

Right Photograph_Saturday May 18, 2013_IBM did another of their taking over a theater and showing a movie and this time, it was Into Darkness. They had rented four of the theaters and David, Lauren and I had a wonderful wonderful time. That IMAX logo seriously sucks.

Boredom
I must say that boredom brings out the best in you. I love the new foliage; I can practically smell the greenness.

If I were to stack up a month's reading, it would often be a picture of my Kindle (the original) and my Kindle Fire, one on top of the other. As for what I've watched, probably my Kindle Fire, too. Bor-ring. FanSee

Re: Boredom
I think I do a lot of my photography in order to deal with boredom, which I come to very easily so, you're observant because that does work to my advantage photographs-wise.

I have no kindle or nook, but when I do my May reading, I'll have to included my laptop, I read a lot of Sherlock/John & Adam/Tommy fanfic in May :))

Paradiso is done is done and I enjoyed it much more than I expected to, so very cool. The restaurant is know world-wide (sp they say) for their pea soup even if I chose instead to have a hamburger :))

Are you back??!!?? because YAY!!

You are done with the Commedia! Wonderful.

I love pea soup so this is a place I must visit one day for sure.

Yes, I am back after being gone, gone, gone, gone, gone (five trips nearly back to back). Yikes the suitcases are strewn everywhere.

Well, once the suitcases are all nicely back where they belong, I assume we'll get vacation updates, yeah? Five of them!!
