Okay, before you even start reading, open this link in another tab and hit play. Then come back and read this post with its appropriate soundtrack.

So anyways, this past weekend my friend Skittle came to visit us in Cali. She was here from Friday to Monday and it was a long, badass weekend. We started on Friday evening by having a slumber party at our Palisades Party Palace AKA the houseΒ that Carolyn is watching this summer. Carolyn’s brother, Dave, who just moved here from Denver, made whiskey sours for everyone and I made kebabs. After some drinks and food we were ready for the pool.


Shelby shows off her sick pool moves. Ironically, she can’t really swim so…

Around 2, Dave decided that he wanted to go down to some cliff he knew about to get a shot of the moon setting over the Pacific Ocean. Shelby followed him because, hey, why not? Well, the reason WHY NOT is because to get to this cliff, we had to jump over a 5-foot wall with spikes on top. And I have I ever mentioned that I am only 5 feet tall? And also have a fear of being eviscerated by fence spikes? Anyways, they eventually boosted me over the wall and we got a few semi-decent shots.

Unfortunately, the marine layer prevented us from seeing the moon. And a security guard yelled at us πŸ™

The next day Skittle, Dave, and I went to Malibu to see Point Dume. Yeah, I take all my friends there.

Oh my god. We look so tired in this photo. Anyways, the gang went downtown for dinner.

We also visited Varnish, a speakeasy downtown. When that closed at 2, we went to a party in Hollywood and stayed up all night.

The next afternoon, Shelby, Skittle and I went to Culver City to cure our hangovers.

On Sunday evening, we had a scary movie night. We watched Tusk, a 2014 Kevin Smith film in which Justin Long transforms into a walrus. Um, it was amazing. And so bizarre. If you’re a fan of horror comedy, I highly recommend.

On Monday, Skittle and I went to Venice Beach to try to fix our weird tanlines.

After I dropped her off, I went home and watched 6 hours of The Office then promptly died for 12 hours.

What did you do this weekend?
