It’s been a while since El Bob’s been out of the house. Here are some older memories from 2009.
El Bob spent a Sunday afternoon playing in the fields with the Princess of Eagle Rock. He was resting on a fallen log when the Princess stumbled upon him while she was wandering through the forest. El Bob’s irresistible charm turned an ordinary day to a memorable romance filled with grass, sun, dancing, and bugs.
El Bob went to his very first Sonic after seeing the commercials for years, as a new location opened up in Totowa, NJ on US-46.
El Bob’s verdict: ¡No vaya!
Maybe the trip would have been more worth it if there weren’t sixty two thousand cars waiting in line while the rest thirty thousand cars were forced to make two U-Turns to park at another lot to walk over. It then took another 15 minutes of waiting in line to order from a machine where the microphone was 7 feet up. Wonderful design guys, wonderful. El Bob only tried a plain burger with tater tots and unsweetened iced tea, so perhaps he didn’t get the full 2000 calorie experience as intended. The food was normal. El Bob will have to go back early morning sometime and try their steak and eggs breakfast burrito and compare it with the Jack-in-the-Box version. Either way it was an interesting and fun experience nonetheless considering he was with two El Bob fans.
El Bob went to his very first BMW meet at Paul Miller. He saw a lot of pimped out rides though none of them are close to his P.I.M.P. status.
El Bob spontaneously made a 24-hour trip to West Palm Beach, FL to cruise on a yacht with a bunch of ladies, then spent the night at a DoubleTree before heading back to New York the next morning. El Bob made some Boston friends on the yacht who were already fans of him.
El Bob spent the day in New York City and made a few new friends. There is absolutely too much to see, it would take El Bob a few lifetimes to cover everything. Due to bad weather and limited time, El Bob could only visit a small seashell-full of places. He started with breakfast at Central Cafe, then off to Grand Central where he took the A to Museum of Natural History. El Bob walked through Central Park and into the Central Park Zoo to say hi to some penguin and polar bear friends. It was then off to the Apple store to play with the new iPhone 3Gs. El Bob walked through Times Square in the rain, visited the New York Public Library, which was kinda smelly, and finally ended up at the Guggenheim. There will be many more New York City trips for him in the future.
The reason why I prefer to use a point and shoot camera is deeper depth of field. Even with a super wide 16mm lens wide open, the background will be blurred out, whereas this does not happen with my Sony Cybershot.
