A few weeks ago I went to go see Django Django at the El Rey Theater and they were SO SICK. I have seen them once before and they are just absolutely incredible live. At one point, the singer had everyone in the theater crouch down on the floor, and then we all jumped up and danced at the same time. So fun. Funny story though: when I took this picture, I accidentally used my flash and then I couldn’t figure out how to turn it off, probably blinding everyone in the band. Sorry about that, Django Django. #awkward
Hey buddies! Guess what! I’m not dead. You were probably wondering what happened to me though, right? I have had family in town for the past 3 weeks AND I moved to a sweet, new apartment. I really miss blogging though. I am sitting in a coffee shop right now, working on scheduling posts so we can all be together again 🙂 So let’s get caught up!
Please excuse the iPhone photos. I haven’t been great about taking “Big Boy” out on the town lately.
Then my sister came to visit! We took her to Quarters Korean BBQ, one of our out-of-towner standards. I really want to go there now, actually. They give you a bowl of cheese to dip your grilled meats into. It’s amazing.
We went to Commissary at the Line Hotel in Koreatown for brunch and bottomless mimosas. The food was nothing to text mom about, but the waiter kept our mimosas topped off and you can’t complain about that.
After drinking for a while, we were definitely considering cousin tattoos. I still do want matching cousin tattoos, but maybe we should give it a little more thought first, right?
We had made a pit stop to Jason’s place to catch an Uber to Hollywood, and tried on some kandi while listening to Lana Del Ray.
Then we went to Good Times at Davey Wayne’s and had a really crazy Sunday Funday. Like we met some hip hop producer named F1 who was telling us about recording with some dude from Bone Thugs & Harmony and then I cut his birthday cake and served it to him and his friends??? Jason and Morgan cut out to buy cigarettes and go home, when they saw some guy apparently trying to jump off a crane and commit suicide. Later, we found out it was just Steve-O protesting Seaworld???
There’s just a lot of ???? involved in my memories of that day.
My sister and I went shopping on Melrose. Pictured above is the glorious shoe display at Nasty Gal. Would you look at all that tinsel and feathers? I should start playing the lottery.
We also stopped at Tatsu for a little hangover-curing ramen.
My sister and I were determined to get some cute donuts. Look at that little pig! And the blue-beary-y one. Get it?
Then my aunt and uncle came into town with their twin Westies, Woody and Lou.
Woody is a little chunk and a snuggle bug. Every time I went over to the vacation house, he wanted to jump up into my lap and chill. Of course, his little legs are too short to jump so you have to pick him up! It’s so sad/cute!
Carolyn and I moved into our new apartment in West LA and discovered that both of our moms had bought us little pig figurines before we moved. How weird is that? Also our moms’ names are Francie and Nancy and they both refinish furniture.
Last weekend Carolyn and I went to DTLA to check out a bar called Mrs. Fish, which features huge aquariums and an under-the-sea theme. There didn’t seem to be a lot of fish in the tanks though, and once the band started up I could see why. Fish can’t deal with those wild vibrations, you know.
Later, Carolyn and I went to a burger joint for some late-night grub and shared a milkshake. While we were enjoying our food, this dapper man came up to us and told Carolyn that he could tell she slept on her side, and that she probably has tension between her shoulders. She was so surprised because that was exactly true, so we asked him how he knew that. Apparently he’s a chiropractor and he literally cracked our necks and backs in the middle of this restaurant for some free fries.
The Notre Dame boys.
Sorry, I just had to post more about these adorable puppies. They left this morning and I miss them already!
In other news, my parents took Gibby to the beach house in Florida. We weren’t sure if he could swim since he was a rescue, but he surprised everyone and jumped into the pool as soon as he got there. Dogs are amazing!
So, yeah, that was a lot of iPhone photography and a lot of dogs. We’re still friends, right? I promise I won’t go so long without blogging again.
