I’ve Got (Painted) Crabs!

crab.jpgLast night Adam, Cam, and I headed out after work in search of a good Happy Hour. Memories of Casa Machado fresh in our minds (the awesome Mexican food place by the old D Street that had cheap drinks, huge beers, and free appetizers), we hoped to find an awesome replacement in the new neighborhood. We drove around for 30 minutes before determining that Clairemont was too far from the border to have decent mexican food. Fortunately, around one turn of Morena Blvd. we noticed a huge sign that said “1801“. Below it in small letters was a sign that said “The High Dive”.

This is the most awesome bar/grill anywhere in San Diego. We ended up drinking $2.50 Rolling Rocks and had a spaghetti and meatball dinner for $2.50. We will definitely be back. However, what does this have to do with crabs? Well, after dinner we headed over to Petco so cam could get some crickets to feed his lizard (Literally…theres no pun intended there). At Petco I was looking at hermit crabs and saw this little dude cruising around. What are the evolutionary chances that his shell would develop into the FDNY logo? This thing must be worth thousands to some museum!

Or, someone at Petco had too much free time and painted their shells. This guy probably just crawls in circles as he is delirious from the paint chemicals seeping into his shell. Anyway, gotta run…thought this was a cool picture!


This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!
