friday:

  • left work a little early for an afternoon sewing class at urban craft center. very very fun. christine haynes is awesome.
  • stopped by cvs on the way home for zombie makeup, and crossroads trading for a last minute addition to my zombie costume.
  • dinner at french market place, which is literally right across the street from our apt. a little embarrassing we haven’t been there yet.
  • got home late, copped out of a birthday party on the west side (sad face) and went to bed.

saturday:

  • went for a run around noon, waaaaay too hot. t-minus 2 weeks till the 5k, eek!
  • tried to catch some of the psu/michigan game but we had pac 10 games on tv, of course. ripped/shredded/dusted my zombie outfit.
  • got dressed and headed to la live for thrill the world 2009. registered, ran through some practices, and got my zombie makeup done. had some time to kill before the big dance, so i stopped into yard house, where george was making friends and catching some college football.
  • finally time to dance thriller! we performed 3 times, and the vibe was awesome. this is definitely the best youtube video i’ve seen so far. no wonder i couldn’t find my zombie buddies- there were thousands of people there!
  • afterwards we had dinner/hung out at yard house for a while, rooting against usc and florida.
  • dia de los muertos celebrations at hollywood forever cemetery. the event totally blew up from last year- it was PACKED. we met nathan there and we walked around for a few hours taking in all the altars, music, and costumes. it was definitely fun to still be in zombie gear.

sunday:

  • pretty much got up and drove down to escondido to meet natalie and evan for lunch at stone brewery. good times, as always. had a yummy lunch and filled up our growler to drive back to LA. the drive down to san diego is always a little liberating- driving through camp pendleton makes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, which is (gasp!) hard to find in LA’s immediate vicinity.
  • that pretty much ate the whole day. watched a little of U2’s concert from the rose bowl and hit the hay.

not the most relaxing weekend on record… and i’m a little halloweened out. not sure if i’m gonna get to my other costume idea… might just zombie it up again for this weekend.
