Get a signed copy of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” based on the true story of the personal life of a dream interpreter, travelling through the west coast before 9-11, now available in the San Diego local author section at Verbatim Books, 3793 30th St, San Diego, CA 92104.
Verbatim is a great, open minded space to get zines, modern fiction and classics, in a cool, artistic area of San Diego without that Barnes and Noble Big Box corporate mall feeling. They even have a poetry night once a month. So you can read your work there too!
However, if you’re looking for a bookstore with Wi-Fi, as the cashier, Nick, who’s a great guy, agreed with me, they want you to read books here, like you did in your old college bookstore. Not be on the internet. Maybe even heaven forbid, buy a few. Authors can sell there books on consignment too and get 60%. Just ask their cool staff members. Not many chairs here to sit down, but it’s a great literary hangout!
This bagpiper was playing outside the Mission Valley Tilted Kilt for a bachelor party. If you like the squealing sound of bagpipes, enjoy!
Since I’m Jewish, when I was a child, my parents told me Santa was fake. I went to school and told all the other kids he was fake too! Boy was I on the naughty list after that! I had to go to the principal’s office and he met with my parents. The principal told me that even if he wasn’t real, it’s not nice to tell the other kids. I cried and apologized, but now I can’t help telling the truth and these pictures of multiple Santas in an Ocean Beach bar prove it.
I spotted these two near the Star of India in San Diego. What is Tinkerbell doing in the same place as Jack Sparrow? Whatever happened to Captain Hook? And where’s Peter Pan when you need her/him?
I went out to a fantastic Greek restaurant last
night. Appollonia’s is not your average “Coke Coke, Pepsi Pepsi, cheeseburger cheeseburger” falafel place. For those of you who don’t know, that’s a mid-century Saturday Night Live reference. The food is fantastic and the classic art copies here are amazing. Above, you’ll see the goddess Venus as the statue in the middle.
Here’s a sculpture of “Winged Victory” on the way to the bathroom.
Here’s three lovely ladies. Are these the three fates?
Here’s a few textured frescos inside the warm, relaxing atmosphere of the restaurant.
So this is what you see while you wait for your falafel, shishkabob or other Aegan meal which is reasonably priced, along with the rest of their menu.
