Saturday Breakfast

I gotta start recording our fun breakfasts we do on Saturday mornings in Half Moon Bay.

I blame it all on Evelyn “surf the tsunami” Rodriguez. She keeps bringing fantastic people into our lives. This morning she got us up to meet at the Half Moon Bay Airport (a quaint little affair where you can fly your private airplane up to the Three-Zero cafe, which is where we met for breakfast).

Maybe soon we could get Doug Kaye or Jeremy Zawodny (both pilots who are geeks and bloggers too, so just my idea of great people to hang out with on a Saturday) to fly over for brunch.

Anyway, today Evelyn introduced us to Theresa Williamson, one of the founders of Tango Diva, a site for women who travel the world, and her husband. Theresa is one of those people who, when you meet her, you instantly like. She’s flown all over the world and is writing a book about the 50 best places to visit in the world if you’re a woman and you’re traveling alone. She does her homework. Is about to leave on a cross-Europe tour.

I asked her what the most interesting museum she’d ever visited was. I was expecting something like Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry, or the Smithsonian, or the Lovre in Paris. But, no, she said the Icelandic Phallological Museum. Yes, a museum run by a scientist all about penises. I’ve heard it all now.

Anyway, you can read more about Theresa here. Funny, we discovered that she lives just a few houses away from me. Wild.

  1. The most interesting museum I have been to is the “Museum of Criminology” in San Jose, Costa Rica. They have displays showing the bloody aftermath of a Drug buy gone wrong, they show all types of strange and bizarre things, suicides, what your throat looks like when you choke to death on gum. Yes they school children through the museum, a “Scared Straight” type of tour. Also the Herpetology house (Snakes of all kinds, including the deadly Fer de Lance.)

    Fun for the whole family.

  3. Hey Scoble…

    I lived in Iceland for a year and a half back around 99-2000. Several times I was invited to the phallological museum, but have to admit I passed it by each time. That said, the rest of Iceland is beautiful. If you get a chance take a week or two there and visit the natural hot springs, waterfalls and glaciers. Better make it soon if you want to see the glaciers though… just in case this little heat trend keeps on going.

  5. Hey dude!

    Teresa’s penis museum story was definitely a breakfast crowd pleaser -especially when compared to Tim’s Meerkat tales and my Cheetah Hunt ditty. Boy was it was pretty funny to see Patrick’s eyes roll back in his head when Teresa finished up. Too funny!

    Look forward to the launch of the ScobleShow!

  7. Half Moon bay rocks! I proposed to my wife there. If you haven’t yet, make sure you visit Barbara’s Fish Trap. Great place to go.
