You made it to Safari West and Calistoga already? You guys must have lead feet! Reply Dagny March 4, 2007 at 11:03 pm Details. I need details. Which winery? And how was Safari West? I’ve always wanted to check out that place.

Hope subsequent commenters have high enough moral standards to spare us all. And that you have a great time. Reply steppingoverthejunk March 5, 2007 at 4:42 am looks like fun! Sophia is stunning, I don’t think I’ve seen a photo of her before…I want hair like hers! Reply alissa March 5, 2007 at 5:04 am Sophia is so cute! Looks like you’re having a great time so far. Reply Rabbit March 5, 2007 at 5:08 am Isn’t public art always weird? Reply Pearl March 5, 2007 at 5:09 am Love that “weird public art” photo — does Sophia now fall into that category? Hey, Sophia & Neil, “Thumbs up”! Hope you’re still both on a high from the act of birthday giving/arranging and receiving. Reply Karl March 5, 2007 at 5:26 am Does Sophia always climb into the tub with her clothes on? Reply Ariel March 5, 2007 at 5:45 am Nice wildlife! As for the thumb, glad to see the picture was not one of you sitting under it… [cringe]. Sorry folks, couldn’t resist! Reply leesepea March 5, 2007 at 6:15 am Hey, at least you got a big “Thumbs Up!” It could’ve been a different finger… Reply Not Faint Hearted March 5, 2007 at 6:24 am Looks like a fun trip, so far. Enjoy yourselves and don’t worry about us! Reply ms. sizzle March 5, 2007 at 7:01 am oooh zebras! looks like good times. hope you two are having a great time. Reply Finn March 5, 2007 at 7:12 am Looks like fun so far. Champagne? How romantic? wink, wink, nudge, nudge Reply NSC March 5, 2007 at 7:15 am You do know you are supposed to be naked in the tub, right? Reply AscenderRisesAbove March 5, 2007 at 7:24 am safari west??? santa rosa is near my neighborhood; we are going to have to check that out this week! Reply Bre March 5, 2007 at 7:28 am I am ridiculously jealous that you got that close to a giraffe! I really really want to touch one someday! Reply Churlita March 5, 2007 at 8:13 am How fun. Does Sophia ever take a bad picture? No fair. This post really makes me miss Northern California. Reply bookfraud March 5, 2007 at 8:32 am sometimes, a thumb is only a thumb. nice pics. sophia looks great. what about you and the thumb? where’s neil with the critters? come on! Reply better safe than sorry March 5, 2007 at 10:05 am so far so good? you know, if you can’t even get her naked for the tub, Neil’s Penis is in for a long lonely trip. Reply plain jane March 5, 2007 at 10:11 am Travel must agree with Sophia, SHE LOOKS STUNNING (& HAPPY). I hope you two have a lovely trip. Reply deezee March 5, 2007 at 12:01 pm I know that thumb…Half Moon Bay, right? winery of some long forgotten name? Reply Rhea March 5, 2007 at 12:13 pm God, it looks you’re having a blast! I like the zebras best. Reply Leah March 5, 2007 at 4:50 pm I hate to be the one chiming in to say that Sophia is totally a HOTTIE!! I don’t think I’ve seen pics of her before. You should have a section of “All Sophia, All the Time.” Not that I like girls or anything….(and not like that’s a bad thing, for those of you who like them)….and not that I don’t also think you’re fun, cute and interesting….but yeah, she’s got great hair, great smile, and seems like fun. We need a little more of Sophia. heheh. (You can officially hate me now. Hehe.) Reply Oopsy Daisy March 5, 2007 at 8:13 pm Talk about having your thumb on things. Wow! Reply Dagny March 5, 2007 at 9:46 pm After reading the comments on the photo of Sophia, I must say once more that she was so wronged by the makeup artists on “Windfall.” They so made her frumpy on that show. So unlike the photos that you post of her. She should sue or something. Because isn’t that the American way? Reply Killer March 5, 2007 at 10:48 pm Is that a giant toe? I don’t think Sophia should be putting her face against a giant toe. She might get a weird fungal thing on her cheek. Reply V-Grrrl March 6, 2007 at 3:33 am I think Neil’s penis is taking the pictures. There’s an awful lot of phallic images here. And the thumb? It makes me want to sculpt a VERY LARGE HAMMER right next to it. Reply 1 Pingback communicatrix » Blog Archive » Citizen of the Day (a.k.a.
