The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part). Why 1001 Days?: Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such as New Year's resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

#11 and #28: A father and his two daughters visit record stores, chow down & hang with a dark knight.

Rachel (my sister) and I took my dad to San Francisco for the day. I drove him up in my new car (pictures coming!), and we met up with Rach who took the Bart & then Muni in from Sacramento (w/ a bit of driving too). My pops and I hit up Amoeba (#11) before Rach got there since she's not a huge record store fan.

We were all starving after so we went down to Squat & Gobble for some amazing breakfast. Did some more shopping (Giant Robot, various shops, Anarchist's Bookstore for the latest Cometbus), before heading over to the SoMa for The Dark Knight at the Metreon IMAX Theater (#28). Like most people have said, not much difference other than the buildings--which still looked really cool (and gave my dad vertigo), BUT it was worth the extra $$$ just to see it on such a gigantic screen.

After the movie my dad treated us out to an awesome dinner at John's Grill in Union Square. We had such a great time we didn't want to leave but there was a huge line out of the door waiting to go in. So we left, walked Rachie to the BART and went on our merry way.

Before dropping my dad back to his car we stopped at 7-Eleven for some water and I bought a scratcher that won me 10 bucks!

Was just one of those really great days.
