friday:

  • scouted some fabric at the urban craft center, my new favorite place.
  • ‘rediscovered’ the beatles in the afternoon. now i’m dying for the uber expensive remastered albums.
  • early evening run at the beach. i did pretty well, i like running there a lot more than around my neighborhood. unfortunately the traffic was still terrible afterwards.
  • george and nathan were hanging out with gin & tonics all afternoon, celebrating n’s <voluntary> last day of work, so when I got home they were pretty drunk. I decided to “take” them to baby blues bbq, which turned out to be a pretty amusing evening all around.

saturday:

  • finished organizing my photo library (whee!!) during am college football.
  • practiced dunking my head in the sink in preparation for sunday’s swim lesson. i am getting better! goggles are amazing (it is really difficult to type goggles and not googles).
  • finally drove mulholland drive. it’s embarrassing that we’ve lived in LA for over a year and live so close to it, and yet haven’t made it up there. some great views of the city/valley, though we agreed that the shock value was kind of gone.
  • surprisingly yummy mexican dinner at el torito grill. mmm handmade tortillas.
  • saw the informant! at arclight sherman oaks. arclight hollywood > arclight sherman oaks. one of the best things about seeing a movie in hollywood is the applause after the movie. seems silly, but chances are, someone in that theater worked on that film.

sunday:

  • swimming lesson was cancelled because they found broken glass in the pool.  :( bummer, i was all psyched to get my face wet.
  • melrose farmers market.
  • afternoon shopping on larchmont street, kind of reminded me of coolidge corner in brookline. found super cute birthday gifts for george’s nieces. shopping for kids is always incredibly fun!
  • tennis at plummer park.
  • plotting/scheming a possible birthday trip to seattle.
