Pepper Robot Now Dancing In Fashion Valley Microsoft Store

 

I had to stop to charge up my electric car at the Fashion Valley Mall after waiting an hour and a half in terrible rainy traffic coming from the Mission Valley Mall. I finally got there and plugged in. I decided to shop for a new computer at the Microsoft Store and was greeted by this friendly, funny robot.

 

Downtown San Diego Holiday Bowl Parade

I got up early New Years eve Morning to see the balloon parade. I’ve always wanted to see it so this year I didn’t miss it. It took me awhile but I finally found a place to park, in a tight spot, but unknowingly it became a fantastic view where the balloons all went to deflate!

Here’s my imaginary San Diego family.

Here’s a piggy.

Thought I was dreaming when I saw this T-Rex floating down the street.

 

This must have been that worm in my tequila.

I want to be the wizard of WordPress.

Went downtown early this New Year's Eve morning and was lucky enough to park where I shouldn't to get these great shots of our San Diego balloon parade.  It brings out the child in me and is a smaller version of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day. It was fun!

Is there a need to fear?

This was my favorite shot!

Now the only question is… are you old enough for…Granny Goose?

I thought the parade was over when this space shuttle balloon came by. This was the last float. Happy New Year!

Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach

As a former brand ambassador for a solar company, I was assigned to attend the Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach. I saw this incredible golden doodle dog there, surfing in the ocean. Kentucky & His Dog, Derby Weeks later, I saw the surf dog with his owner, named Kentucky parked at my condo.  It turns out, after talking to Kentucky, that both Kentucky and Derby are my new neighbors here at my beach condo!

Naked Skydiving Now Available @ Mira Mesa Barnes and Noble

After talking to Cameron, the head cashier at Barnes & Noble, he agreed to carry a few copies of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” the story of a dream interpreter, traveling throughout west coast before 9-11.

There might also be an open reading at this Barnes & Noble near the 15 freeway on Mira Mesa Blvd this Wednesday night and I’ll read a little from the book and maybe some new work. You can read your own work too! Check back to this blog for details, all thanks to Cameron and the new management at Barnes & Noble. “Naked Skydiving” is available in the fiction section under the S’s for Schaffner, my last name. If I see you in the store, I’ll autograph your copy! Next, I’ll be working to get the book in every Barnes & Noble

 

San Diego Film Week

I was lucky enough to go to a few classy filmmaking parties last weekend. The first one ended San Diego Film Week.

Here’s a few snaps:

This was the stage where music,comedy and the San Diego Film awards appeared.

Here’s a few ladies enjoying their 2 free drinks at the blackjack table.

Lots of San Diego Film Awards were handed out. I didn’t see most of the films so I can’t really comment on them.

I did attend the San Diego 48hr Film festival and saw a few there.My favorite was called, “Sorry To Bother You.” I don’t think I’d want participate in that festival because you have to pay them to pressure yourself and your cast & crew to finish a film in 48 hours, and besides the little trophy and admiration of your peers, the financial return seems minimal for all your expenses.  True, low or no budget films must be done within a few weeks before participants lose interest. But 48 hrs seems crazy to me.

Festivals abound around the world, online and they are a great way these days to establish yourself as a filmmaker.Lots of trophies were handed out that night like faux Oscars, but I won’t bore you with them. Anyway, the price of admission included 2 free drinks and 2 tacos. Rice and beans were $6.00 extra. Ouch! I came up with my own drink called the Rummelon which is made of rum, watermelon juice and club soda or sprite. Yum! 

Snakeoil cocktails provided the watermelon juice and mixed my original creation. Delicious!

Other than that, there was supposed to be a burlesque show but they thought children would attend so all we got were these “cigarette” girls handing out candy instead.

The next night, was an Oscar party at a fancy La Jolla Mansion for sale. Call me, Jordan Schaffner BRE#01736921 @ 619-346-9433 to make a serious offer over $10 million. 

Here’s where you enter and walk the red carpet.

There was also a ballot to guess the Ocar winners with a fairly large cash prize.

Great views all the way to the pacific.

This is the pool.

Incredible!

What a place to watch the Oscars, from your own infinity pool overlooking La Jolla Beach!

Here’s a few great 🔥 fireplace shots

Some beautiful flowers from the party.

And the Oscar goes to…”La La Land,” no, no, I mean “Moonlight.” Well, we all know that story by now.

Sloane’s Ice Cream Parlor Novelties         

At the San Diego UTC Mall, there’s an ice cream store called Sloane’s Ice Cream Parlor.  They have the most interesting novelties. They include comical solutions to life’s most complex problems including how to understand your mother, enjoy exercising, talk to your cat, etc.


And then there are the socks.” I love my job ha ha, just kidding”, “I hate everyone,” and others.There’s fake dog poop that’s a spare key hiding spot, the crazy cat lady action figure, which comes with 6 plastic cats,

Of course,there’s also that good old fashioned random bag of crap.  As crazy as these things are, I imagine they come with a pretty high price tag. After all, the La Jolla UTC is not cheap. Sloane’s ice cream is very high quality, and so are these laughs, so if you’re looking for unique gag gifts, this is the place to go.

A Little Early For Halloween In La Jolla

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After closing the sale of my parents home in Oceanside,  unfortunately, my Dad fell down and ended up in the La Jolla VA hospital at the escrow office.  A beautiful sweet woman in the parking lot saw it happen, helped me lift him up and gave him some bandages. She really reaffirmed my faith in human nature.

Afterwards, we went to visit him at the hospital.  Then, my date & I went to La Jolla shores for dinner.  We saw this restaurant  called Barbarella that was decorated thoroughly with these scary animated Halloween characters. In fact, it was so scary that my date didn’t want to eat there because of the giant fake spiders, even if they were near a romantic fireplace.

Since my “Day of the Dead” pictures from a few years ago became my most popular blog, I figured that I should share some of these fun early resHalloween  images as well.  My Dad is feeling better now too.
