This is Saturday, July 4, 2015!
It’s 4th of July! Instead of attending BBQs, was an antisocial worker bee in the morning, but still got to try some homemade piña coladas before heading to a big family BBQ. Fireworks and dogs for life.
Sufi likes to sit on my legs, gotta kick him outta there the leg morning stretch
Tweedy sleeps above my head.
Coffee time is morning time
Bring my coffee in squirrel mug into the work room.
Hair back let's get down to work
Working on the 3rd episode branding for Zach's podcast
Working on a basic graphic lei design for the episode that takes place in Hawaii. Using Adobe Illustrator to trace this lei pic I just googled.
Use these designs to build off the Dick Duquesne logo (the silhouette of him with the microphone)
Then these come in handy for Dick's social media accounts.
Printing out my homework assignment for my evening UX Design class.
Working on hypothesizing my “problem” that I want to design a solution for.
Have to have my snack every day!
Using my tiny Turner prize pencil I borrowed from the Tate Britain last fall. Posted up some blank squares to get to persona-building.
Always my cheerleaders
Sufi looking out the window, dreaming of the days when he could run free with the wolves.
Tweedy, what are you even thinking. Do you know that you are alive?
Zeen also working in my space (I’M SO NICE TO LET HIM HAVE MY DESK)
This editing job is killing him…
But I finished up my personas pretty gooood
Finally time to wash my face, use my medicated foam…
Put my eyeliner on, ready to get dressed
RED, WHITE, AND BLUE (my shoes were white okay okay)
I’ve had these since last 4th of July, time to bust them out
There’s the “white” of the red, white, and blue
On the way to Kiki’s place, passing some art history minions…*they are everywhere in LA*
Chef Veronica cooking up a 4th of July storm! Spinach artichoke dip and guacamole…
*Insert USA flag emoji*
Okay, now he’s patriotic
Veronica hooking it up with the homemade and handmade piña coladas!
I don’t know if I’ve ever had a piña colada before this, but HEY it’s pretty good! I thought it would be super sweet and gross, but it was really refreshing! I guess that’s what happens when you make it from a fresh pineapple.
Veronica’s famous meatballs!!!!
Kiki hunting down a fly
4th of July is about quizzing your friends from a 1981 Trivial Pursuit set
It’s hilariously terrible to have to think about the answers in the context of a year that you weren’t alive in.
Had to leave a bit early and head to South Pas!
From West LA through Downtown
Hello favorite lego cake building!
Stop by Pavilions
When did they start selling so many flowers
Success! (We were looking for some poppers/4th of July goodies)
At my cousin’s house
Baseball in the front yard
I duck getting hit by a baseball to say hi to sweet Barkley
Hanging out inside where it’s air conditioned
Salmon, beef and chicken, salad, JELLO
Barkley’s here to play fetch
Barkley’s little sister being annoying while they play
Watching her drop jello onto the grass more than once.
We are all about the jello
Poppers can be scary hahah
We popped ALL the poppers we got from the store. Mission success.
We cute we cute
Of course my lil’ cuz owns a limbo stick. I mean, why not
Barkley wants to limbo too, but he’s cheating
Everybody being so bendy
Sky’s getting dark, we should hurry before fireworks start…
Mama-san heading out to another party
Best investment ever, back pack chairs are a god send
All set up on the pavement ready to watch some fireworks
Any second now!
Yay! It’s SO LOUD, but so cool to be directly under the fireworks. They explode pretty much directly above us, so dramatic.
A bit of parking lot so you can see kind of how close we were to the firework show
That was awesome. My ears? Bleeding.
Back to the comfort of the warm house, had some coffee, chatted with family and then headed back home
Got our chance to hear the first episode of Zach’s podcast finally posted by his writing/creator partner. You can listen here if you’re curious.
So exciting on the way home to see all the fireworks shows lighting up the sky across LA.
Setting up coffee for the morning
Masterchef has a new season! How did I not know?
TWEEDY so happy to watch Masterchef
Sufi being weird.
A few episodes later ready for Zzzz
Getting into sleeping position, Tweedy licking my lotion off 😦
Good night world!
Much love friends.
