MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: FEBRUARY 13–19, 2017!
Photographing Russian Futurist art books, an evening at a garlic restaurant, stupid hair-dos and salmon, a weekend of rain and wind in Los Angeles, a co-worker’s lovely wedding, and a day with friends in downtown.
Spent the morning shooting some special collections in the GRI
These are Russian Futurist art books, they are hand made and very very fragile
In the evening I edited some installation shots from the asian mamas show
Monday night, had reservations at the Stinking Rose! I’ve always known this place exists cuz it eventually comes up when people find out you love garlic. It’s famous as “a garlic restaurant that puts garlic in everything” but I’ve always heard it’s kitschy. Sounds RIGHT up my alley.
Ordered a hot pan of roasted garlic cuz hell yeah
Garlic wine! Haahha
Mussels and shrimp
Little booths, so cuuute
People v. OJ on the projector *stress*
Happy Valentine’s Day
Little hummingbird (flying in the window)
Garlic man from the Stinking Rose joins me at the office
Sad desk lunch…didn’t bring in anything but didn’t want to spend money so Tristan volunteered a frozen burrito that exploded in the microwave but HEY it was free
Burned his arm on his hot plate through his jacket!
Exhausted, threw on the Gudetama shirt, did my hair weird…
Makeshift table, Tweedy in the background
Yum! Props to chef Zeen
Woke up DELIGHTED cuz White Shadow not only came by but left me a memento ehehe
Left and it was light out!
Wanted to get home to the boyos—they had their teeth cleaned ahha but they had to be on anesthetic so they were sensitive boyos.
Sufi was whining and in pain
Poor baby was only comforted by the red blanket
MUST. COMFORT. SUFI.
Driving behind this cute truck with a frog face on it
My auntie gave me this grapefruit from her tree and I tried to casually eat it in a meeting…but it was SO JUICY that it made such a huge mess on the conference table
Happy hour celebrating the launch of an online exhibition that I helped a little bit with in the digital media outreach. It’s about Ancient Palmyra. Pretty powerful!
Tristan and I continued to Mandrake
My fav weird narrow bathroom
30 wing family pack split between Zeen, Tristy and I. We got some regular buffalo hot wings, cajun style hot wings, buffalo boneless wings, and garlic parmesan boneless wings
Friday! I’m off today, but did a little work in the morning
A big storm was coming so we rushed to the store to get some groceries for the weekend. At the time we thought the storm would last all weekend so we wanted to be prepped.
It was already starting to rain, but mostly the wind was poppin’ off
Droppin’ this at the post office and was so scared that reusing this box would get me in trouble
Bending palm trees
Picked up new beautifully framed treasures
Def raining by now hahah but we braved the storm to get some kimchi fried rice
Wahhhhhhh so good, especially in the rainy weather. Spam kimchi fried rice, spicy rice cakes, and spicy cheese ramen
Went into a cute plushie shop near by and OMG WHO IS THIS?!?! Is he a gorilla?!?! OMG
Zach pointed out these special cats from Neko Atsume and I nearly fainted
Couldn’t resist Xerxes
Really raining now
Huge tree came down in the storm
I just laugh when I see him ahahah I love him
Pups sitting by the open window even though it’s cold, rainy, and they are shivering
Lit some candles, enjoyed the rainy day atmosphere. It was POURING rain, so truly was the best, coziest afternoon.
Sufi enjoying the weather
Tweedy kept shivering by the window, so I shoved him in my sweater
Continuing to make my way through America’s Next Top Model ahah
Set up the project to continue the OJ Saga *dying*
Cat dog! But…dog dog…
FASHUN FASHUNNNN—dressed up for my former co-workers wedding
Managed to put on both EYESHADOW and EYELINER *WOW*
Let’s dooooo it
Beverly Hills fancy baby
The warm, loving reception!
Are there always rainbows in Beverly Hills?
Got my My Favorite Murder shirt in the mail!!! It says “Toxic Masculinity Ruins the Party Again”
Pizza party with myself
Zach asked from the other room if I wanted a cocktail…sure. Came back and every cabinet was open, every jar was out…hurricane ahha
Sunday! So many spiky balls after the rains all weekend
Let’s go biking!
Pumped up Zach’s bike’s tires…but then…
Noticed that somehow the spokes had shattered!??!?!
So we just walked aha
Was hoping the creek would have more water in it after all the rain, oh well
Whenever I take this trail I really can’t resist going to Mateo’s for an icecream bar or scoop. This is “chamomango”, chamoy + mango. It’s spicy mango flavor and SO SO GOOD
I’m blending in with the rocks while enjoying my chamomango
Not naked *promise*
Headed downtown to meet Kiki and Ders and saw them as we drove by. V. creepy. Hire me.
Cole’s! Can’t resist spicy garlic fries and an old fashioned.
Wearing the shirt out, was hoping to get yelled at to “Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered”
A gloomy day downtown
Monopoly Deal at Arts District Brewing
Far Bar fesat
A casual Sunday evening Rat Race watch…cuz People v. OJ’s Cuba Gooding Jr. crying was so so reminiscent of Rat Race for me hahaha sad connection but damn. His crying.
Much love friends!
