Greetings from California

I spent two days in Sacramento learning everything there is to know about playground standards. I lucked out and didn't have to take the certification test. I'm so glad, there was just so much to know! But Sacramento was so nice. When I left DC, it was snowing. Its been 80-85 and sunny. Ahhh!

Today I went to Armsrong Redwoods State Preserve in Sonoma County. It was WONDERFUL!!! Its near the town of Guerneville. I've decided that is one of those places old hippies end up. I also spent some time at Wright's Beach watching the vicious Pacific surf crash into the rocks.

Currently, I'm in a Holiday Inn is Sebastopol. Nice place. The receptionist suggested a little mexican resturant about a block away for dinner. The food was yummy, but the waitress about left me in tears. She called me "Senor." Five times. Lets see here, female attributes: 38D, rings, necklace, 4 earrings, makeup. Male attributes: crew cut, and I've been told my personality has some male traits - but a waitress wouldn't see that. So yeah, I guess with the crew cut and baseball cap she must have assumed... I dunno. Maybe she calls everyone senor. But, I'm not an idiot. I know I should be a senora or senorita. She seriously ruined my day.

I'm sorry, someone who calls a 38D 'Senor' has issues. Or needs glasses. Or something.

Awwww. The SAME THING just happened to me, but in English! It totally sucks. And I'm toting a comparable rack, thank you very much!

On the bright side, your hair's growing back, and you kicked Hodgkins' ass!

I personally don't think you are even remotely man-like....hello, big boobs! What a crack head! I think you look awesome with short hair:) I'm so envious that you're in such a warm place while I'm freezing my ass off here!

Sorry for the confusion. You should be aware that in California rings, necklaces, make up, and even boobs are not the exclusive domain of females. If your travels took you through San Francisco or West Hollywood, you may have seen what I mean. Their femle counterparts, many with crew cuts, would not be offended by "Senor".

Either way, cancer sucks, and I am glad you are on the road to recovery.

When Erin was a baby EVERYONE thought she was a boy, even though I dressed her in frilly outfits. Once, at the pediatricians, as she was totally nude and being weighed by the nurse, the nurse referred to her as "he" - go figure! B
