We should appreciate the journey, but sometimes it'd be nice to get there.

Los Angeles:
14 – 20 May 2008

- Swimming in the Pacific.
o Watching friend being rescued by hunky lifeguard,
 Friend subsequently is exhausted falls asleep and gets sunburned
• Friend subsequently goes crazy from itchiness and tries multiple
products to alleviate said problem. It is determined that lime
juice applied directly to the skin is the only proper treatment.
- Driving
o It is almost necessary to drive everywhere in L.A. Horror stories of
traffic prove to based in reality.
o Driving with an angry driver makes things a bit more interesting.
 Esp. Mullholand drive
- Eating
o Apparently this sojurn was to be one which could almost be considered
 Pizza (x5), Asian tapas, grilled cheese ala Hollywood, vitamin water,
glenlivitch, vegetarian joints (x2).
- Biking
o 26+ miles on a single speed beach cruiser to Venice beach. I have decided
that while it fully documented to be less than hip, I like gears.
- Venice beach
o Welcome to the flea market / carnival of stuff that people never buy
- Malibu
o Beach, rocks, seal(s)ions, dolphin sighting and leaving a beach in the car
- Museums
o The Getty
o The Museum of Jurassic Technology
o The MOCA
o Geffin at the MOCA
- Dodgers Baseball
o $16 beer and nachos
o Misplacing car?
- Music
o The smell
 Where else can you see in noise rock in a unventilated venue
• Note: Record high that day 96F
- Miscellany
o Keeping high score on TH3 cruise ship
o “co-opt”, “probably true”

I am sure I forgot some stuff too.

Thanks BIG O for hosting.

a way of knowing. knowledge is power. tv can be such a vacuum. turn it off.

cetain shows that i used to watch when i was young leave me feeling somber now, when i encounter them. the shows ( i dont have a list), the thought of them, theme music. i have no specific emotional tie or connection or memory. weird.

if you have 5 seconds to spare

Saturated fats make food delicious. Since I don't eat things with faces, this means coconut products mostly. you need to eat coconut milk.

2 C wheat flour
1 C Water
1 tsp salt
1 T oil

make dough. rest dough. roll dough into circles. pan fry dough very hot with no oil.

This is the same artist who brought us "sunshine, lollipops and rainbows."

A collared, button-up shirt containing chest pockets with built-in match books. Wouldn't that be sweet.

back to life. back to reality.

careers. eh. i am still hoping that without want, i can avoid this mess. the mess of needing to be somewhere. i know i come back to this with frequency but its what i think about.

stone soup.

Yesterday I made a whole wheat honey walnut bread. It is/was delicious. I haven't been riding my bike in this winter weather, though I'd like too. Bike riding is sweet, so I figure with this freak weather that I'll make an effort to do so. That is something scary to think about: riding a bike in a big city. Other things to note: empire apples are delicious and Bigelow spiced chai is not so good.
