I think it's summer

Fresh pesto, snap peas from the farmer's market, and a grapefruit La Croix.

Look at what I did!

So, as I am unemployed for the foreseeable summer (hoping I get some substitute jobs, but so far I've missed two subbing opportunities due to not checking my email frequently enough). This extra free time, with limited $$$, means improvements on the new apartment!

Please admire my work lining lots of shelves:

As you can see, I have truly achieved "adult" status. 

Also, below is a panorama I took for a coworker who asked for an update on the apartment. It is unedited (read: no trash/detritus removed) for a totally authentic look: 

It's getting there!

Valbirthentine's Day

I had a good birthday + Valentine's Day this year, not least because my birthday was on a Sunday, and I forgot how wonderful it is to get to sleep in on one's birthday!

My birthday fortune in the LA Times. Not sure it makes sense.....

Ari made me birthday muffins! 

FREE Starbucks drink on my birthday! I got a molten chocolate latte with whipped cream. :D

Ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins with mint chocolate ice cream. By special request. Thanks for fulfilling my dreams, Ari! 
 On Valentine's Day, we had dinner in K-town and went to see Angel Olsen perform at the Wiltern Theater. My first time at the Wiltern; it really is a great venue. Unfortunately, we DID have to stand for over 3 hours to see the whole show, and that was pretty tough to do after a full day of work. There were two opening acts: Chris Cohen (psychedelic rock) and Jonathan Richman, a zany, ridiculous singer who is apparently is a living legend. He was definitely a lot of fun to watch!

But wait, there's more! On Thursday 2/16, we had a belated swing dancing birthday party at Lindygroove, which is where Ari and I take swing dancing classes every Thursday night. If it's your birthday, you get invite up to 10 guests for free, AND they give you chocolate cupcakes at a reserved table. So nice! So my parents and sister and my Aunt Liz came out to dance and/or watch people dance. It was really nice. 

We took this after Aunt Liz left. Oops.

In case I ever get to walk the red carpet

I have found my dress. I'm not kidding. I mean, I guess Nicole wore it first, but I can deal with that.

Takin' some action

I couldn't make it to the LAX protest today, so at least I can do this. (They postcards are dirty looking because of our wonky printer, but I like the homemade feel it gives them.)

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

I, Too

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,"

They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.
