Friday, July 25, 2014!
A fully documented summer day! Woot! Here I struggle with pimples, go to work, experience some lovely California skies, question the zoo and enjoy some Thai food. All while wearing a mustard striped shirt and a bun. Enjoy!

July 25, 2014
Good morning! It's Friday.

July 25, 2014
Sufi gazes lustfully out the window. Does he have a secret lover on the street?

July 25, 2014
Tweedy is awake too. Looking pretty worried about being alive.

July 25, 2014
Oh my eyes want to be closed.

July 25, 2014
Heh. Heeeh.

July 25, 2014
Okay round two. Sit up. SIT UP!

July 25, 2014
The day is lovely! It's bright, it's blue skies.

July 25, 2014
"What's up!"

July 25, 2014
Get the coffee fired up.

July 25, 2014
Chug some wa-wa-water

July 25, 2014
And soak in the morning!

July 25, 2014
I must admit I'm pretty addicted to Clash of Clans. It's such a simple, but fun concept. And I never play for more than 5 minutes (you just can't in the game) so it's not like…a huge distraction! But yeah…I check every morning and every evening.

July 25, 2014
Riceball

July 25, 2014
Coffee is done brewing. I take it outside to enjoy in the sunlight.

July 25, 2014
*Ahem* Scoot over please.

Tomato guardian

July 25, 2014
^____^ My first tomato plant. I've harvested 3 so far. They are a bit sour. Maybe next year I'll do a cherry tomato plant.

Squirrel mug soaking in the sunlight

July 25, 2014
I finish up my coffee and get my mind set on work mode.

July 25, 2014
I'm working from home this morning. Getting a bunch of posts drafted and ready to go for publishing over the weekend is the usual Friday grind.

July 25, 2014
E-mails. E-mails. G-mails. Re-mails. Mails. T__T

Take a break to clear off this old IKEA TV stand (that's been breaking and creaking and cracking).

July 25, 2014
Washing face time

July 25, 2014
July 25, 2014
Make up time. LOVING these zits I'm getting only on my forehead and chin! They are just SO FUN.

July 25, 2014
New thrifted oversized striped shirt.

July 25, 2014
I like it!

July 25, 2014
The stand is now replaced!

July 25, 2014
July 25, 2014
Casual Friday!

July 25, 2014
Quick loop to pick up a face care product from the LUSH closest to me.

July 25, 2014
Classic LA sign. So funny to me that basically this says that you can park for four hours from 5 AM to 9 AM! That's the optimum time!

July 25, 2014
Santa Monica tree

Oh 3rd Street promenade. You gotta get in and get out as fast as possible. Though, I'm VERY happy to see these mysterious large icecream cones.

July 25, 2014
At LUSH! Grabbing greased lightning, which I've heard is helpful to trouble pimples. I did learn that if you break out on your forehead and chin that it's usually an indicator of stress. *Ugh*

July 25, 2014
Typical Santa Monica mom/daughter duo.

July 25, 2014
Having my usual snack in the car on the way to the Getty

Up and up and up and finally parked.

One of the many elevators I'll ride at work

July 25, 2014
I'm typically on the computer at my desk for a majority of the work day. But today there's an event that I'm running by to take some photos of, which fun!

July 25, 2014
I get to be out in the world seeing visitors and how they are interacting with the exhibitions and site.

July 25, 2014
It's the first on-site workshop of The Chivalry Project. (It's a tumblr)

July 25, 2014
Photos will probably be processed next week.

July 25, 2014
The sky is so nice this week. It's definitely warming back up again in LA. Last week was a bit cloudy and overcast.

July 25, 2014
I'm all alone in our three person office today.

July 25, 2014
Kitty for company

July 25, 2014
Working with an intern to produce some style photos for the Getty's Flickr page.

Mini-kitty stickers gifted to me by a colleague

I love that it stays sunny and lovely so late in the summer.

July 25, 2014

Time to head back home

July 25, 2014

Can see the traffic from here.

Back to the neighborhood

July 25, 2014
My fresh fake flowers. WHERE are the dogs.

July 25, 2014
July 25, 2014
WHERE WERE YOU!?!?! They usually both greet me when I come home. Lazy boys.

July 25, 2014
Trying to figure out how to hang my lanterns. I have twine and tiny hooks, but they won't adhere to the ceiling. Hm.

July 25 2014
Zach is very excited to set up his computer. Finally.

July 25 2014
Shiny and new!

July 25 2014
CHEERS now he's a real editor boy. He can stop using his old macbook and get it together.

July 25 2014
July 25 2014
Celebration!

July 25 2014
Oh but have to change one thing first…

July 25 2014
And the new TV stand is all set up too. Hooray!

July 25 2014
Realized I forgot to eat lunch, so went for some leftover pasta.

July 25 2014
Woo hoo! My village withstood an enemy raid.

July 25 2014
But then as I was packing up some beers to go, I broke a bottle. Let me tell you, beer bottles truly SHATTER. I had to swiffer, vacuum and sweep a few times just to make sure to get all the pieces.

July 25 2014
Stay out, pups!

July 25 2014
Finally got the 3 beers packed (no more broken bottles!)

July 25 2014
Bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some sights on the way to Hollywood

adhd

July 25 2014
We're all together, here we go!

July 25 2014
Magic hour drive

July 25 2014
July 25 2014
The mountains are looking purple and lovely

July 25 2014
We've arrived at Griffith Park!

July 25 2014
Parking lot beers

A lovely evening to spend $18 at the zoo. We heard about this event after joking that none of us had been to a zoo in a while. It's like food trucks, bars, DJs, dancefloors and "animal encounters". Wonder if it's worth $18

July 25 2014
So far so good…stairs…sunset…other humans…

July 25 2014
Touching a lizard

They sold beers and just allowed people to wander the zoo. Most of the zoo was dark and unattended. They must really trust their visitors. It was kind of scary to be in the darkest, unlit parts.

July 25 2014
July 25 2014
Indoor glass cases for snakes, lizards, spiders and more.

Having a Harry Potter moment

July 25 2014
That little dark triangle blob in the middle is a gorilla. There were maybe 6 gorillas in this enclosure and many many people's shadows looming into their space.

July 25 2014
Asian elephant

July 25 2014
One of the silly dance floors

July 25 2014
Poor elephants had to listen to the shitty DJ music ALL NIGHT and chill in this little fenced in enclosure. No grass or stimulation? Maybe there's another area for that?

July 25 2014
July 25 2014
Parts of the zoo were so dark that people would just wander with flashlights. Many of the animal enclosures were darkened.

July 25 2014
Except for this guy!

July 25 2014
And this guy! 🙂

Strange evening. Strange evening.

July 25 2014
10 PM, lights out (well, most lights were out already).

July 25 2014
In pursuit of food!

Trust Thai Patio. Marie brought me here for the first time when she lived out in Silverlake for a summer.

July 25 2014
I forgot what chicken dish we got…but we also had a hot pot which was so tasty over rice. And of course "drunken" noodles.

July 25 2014
Nom.

July 25 2014
Welcome home, Sarah!

July 25 2014
Suf is SHOCKED I'm back.

July 25 2014
Turn faucet on with camera in hand. So dumb.

July 25 2014
Red phone booth jammies

July 25 2014

And then to bed. Goodnight, world!

Much love friends.
