I'm full of good ideas

Oh yes, I am. I will prove it. Here's my list of things to do in San Diego and it totally kicks Sign On San Diego's generic ass.

1. Roller skating (Skateworld may close soon, people. Gotta go now). Roll Bounce.

2. Drive in Movie. $8 per person for a double feature at the South Bay Drive in. Plus you can bring in all the food and drinks and candy ya want. I'm all about bringing a pizza or subs. And a box of wine.

3. Drinks on the deck of the hotel del Coronado. They are expensive and they are worth it. You are paying for the privilege of sitting on their deck.

4. Chula Vista Nature Center. $11 to pet sting rays, watch bald eagle eat a mouse, and look at a lot of  cool native species in the bay and marsh up close. Then go to the nearby Galley for lunch. Get the panko calamari strips.

5.San Diego Limo Ghost Tour. The name says it all. It's a limo, it's a ghost tour. And, oh yeah, all the booze you can drink is included. A great thing to do with guests in town and you really don't need to be into ghosts. Read my review here:

6. Tidepools at Cabrillo National Monument. Check the tide schedule and go at low tide. It's $5 to enter the park, I believe. You can also visit the lighthouse while you are there. Don't wear slick shoes or flip flops. Pick up a fan-freakin'-tastic sandwich at the Con Panne Bakery at the corner of Rosecrans and Canon before you head up the hill to the park.

You're Welcome!

First Date Two Drink Maximum Rule

When I write my book, "The Idiots Guide To What Not To Do While Dating," I'm going to emphasize the first date Two Drink Maximum Rule (TDMR).  Never, ever have more than two drinks on a first date. Especially blind dates.

What happens when you exceed the TDMR?? 99 times out of 100 REGRET. That's what.

How do I know this?? Experience, duh. Two drinks will loosen you up plenty, but you gotta be careful not to go over the precipice. Violating the TDMR leads you to making out on his couch in front of his creepy roommate. It leads to remembering he was cute. Exceeding the TDMR makes you forget how he commented on the waitress' ass and that he swears like a sailor- an un-imaginative sailor with a limited vocabulary.

Worst of all, it leads to wasting your time on a second date with a dude you don't like. at. all.

Second date? Why Not? I had such a great time on our first date

Heed my advice ladies: you want to stay sober on the first date. I know... it's not intuitive. In the moment, of course you wanted to get tipsy to make it fun, or at least, bearable.

Just remember that in order to avoid REGRET (capitol letters), the TDMR is not just a guideline but the law.
