I Want to Get Back to My City by the Bay-ay-ay

In case you didn't know, the "city by the bay" is San Francisco, my f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e city. No doubt it's better than NYC, Chicago, London, or any of those other grand and glorious cities. But, you know, that's just my opinion. You know, I don't think there's a bay in Utah, and I liked my city by the bay, Vacaville, so...you know. You know what I'd like right about now? Everything California...but, you know, I'm guessing that's too much to ask. So, right now I'm going to limit my wants to just California weather because Utah weather blows--literally--snow's blowing all over the place, you know? And I very strongly dislike snow, especially when I have to drive to work in it early in the morning when the roads aren't clear and have to drive down steep, steep, steep mountains. No bueno. In honor of California weather I searched California on my iTunes and these are the songs I will be listening to all winter long...in my head...okay, fine, you know I'll actually be belching these at the top of my lungs while I'm alone in the car. Sorry, Christmas music, but you know you're on the backburner for now (you know, I'm actually doing you a favor seeing that you'll be out of the snow and next to a burner where it's warm. You're welcome.) Snow, snow, go away. Come again...never.

  • Beverly Hills-Weezer
  • California Girls-The Beach Boys
  • Hotel California-Eagles
  • California Dreamin'-The Mamas & the Papas
  • California-Phantom Planet
  • Californication-Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • Dani California-Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • California Sky-Unwritten Law
  • California Love-2Pac
  • Lights-Journey

...and it looks like I have a lot more downloading to do.

Hmm, Utah, I wonder why there haven't been any hit singles about you. Oh, I know why. If you don't know why, then just think long and hard about what you've done. Thanks.

You mean you still don't know why no one sings about you? Here's a hint (see pictures below):

Let's compare these photos, shall we?

Picture on the left: Utah, December 2010--after a snowfall lasting 24 hours

Picture on the right: Laguna Beach, December 2007--after visiting Disneyland the previous day

Picture on the left: white, annoying substance dominating everything in its path

Picture on the right: beige, annoying substance dominating everything in its path but is clearly welcomed with open arms

Bottom line: Choose the right.

  1. Vacaville eh? I recently went near there (if not there) to celebrate my pre (we're not going to have any actual money on your birthday so let's spend it now) birthday. I spent the day at Scandia where I ruled at miniature golf and dumped several dollars into the claw machine before finally giving up.


Thank you for reading and have yourself a great day. Or night. Whatever.
