MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JUNE 4–10, 2018! (MOVIE NIGHT, LA PRIDE, AND DOGGIE BEACH)

Battling a cough while mistreating my body by eating out, trying sake flights, watching a rooftop screening of Ghostbusters, and attending LA Pride. Plus, a day spent at the dog beach with Tweedy and Sufi.

Enjoy!

Monday *dramatic* illustrative photo. Cough levels have peaked, I have no voice and a sore throat so I stayed home from work to rest.

It feels like I’ve been doing this puzzle for years. It’s harder than it looks because all the pieces are so abstract looking up close because of the sketchy style.

On Tuesday evening, I already had the plan to visit Sake Dojo and take some new photos for their Instagram to help out Jill. I might have coughed all over the food (sorry, friends) but it was worth going out because everything was SO delicious.

After a lecture from friends about ignoring my cough and avoiding the doctor (I swear, I did try to find an urgent care online but my insurance is truly terrible), I ended up with a last minute appointment at my doctor’s thankfully it worked out.

Doctor thinks most likely is a viral infection, perhaps made worse because I have asthma. All-in-all, I will survive, but thankfully got some cough medicine to it easier to sleep.

Trying out this recent umbrella purchase. What a good idea! I’ve never had a beach umbrella before…and…it does truly make the beach more enjoyable because you don’t get so hot that you want to leave immediately.

Tweedy to the water first…he was not a fan. The waters were pretty big though, so maybe he was scared.

Then it was Sufi’s turn. He was cute trying to swim around, but overall the waves were too intense I think.

Ready for some invasive, random questions? (Inspired by the nostalgia of Livejournal surveys, I borrow these from ohd-surveys on Livejournal from 2010). Answer if you’d like:

 

  1. What do you get complimented on the most?
  2. What is your favorite condiment?
  3. Where was the last place you went on vacation?
  4. What was the last thing you printed? Is there even ink in your printer?
  5. What was your favorite childhood playground game?

__

  1. What do you get complimented on the most?
    Recently, it’s been my socks or shoes at work. I guess that’s nice of folks to notice.
  2. What is your favorite condiment? 
    Ranch dressing. Is ranch dressing popular where you live? I watched a YouTube video of a girl from Singapore who was saying ranch was kind of weird for her, especially to eat with pizza or chicken. But that’s my favorite!
  3. Where was the last place you went on vacation?
    San Francisco/Oakland
  4. What was the last thing you printed? Is there even ink in your printer?
    Free tickets to be an audience member at a Family Feud taping. There’s ink in the printer, but it’s rarely used.
  5. What was your favorite childhood playground game?
    Lava monster on playground equipment, capture the flag, and make-believe.

Much love friends.

  1. The dogs at the dog beach are too cute! That pic of them bundled up together is too much!

    What do you get complimented on the most?
    Hm. I’m not sure honestly – probably my clothes or hair?

    What is your favorite condiment?
    Ranch!!! I’m from the Midwest, so ranch is king.

    Where was the last place you went on vacation?
    Last true vacation was to Greece (Athens and Santorini) in April; I traveled to Portland for work in May.

    What was the last thing you printed? Is there even ink in your printer?
    I don’t have a printer at home, but the last thing I printed at work (that wasn’t work-related) was a test print of the program booklet I made for my grandma’s memorial service (which printed perfectly, much to my surprise).

    What was your favorite childhood playground game?
    Wow this is going to be really dorky, but I loved playing horses. Literally just running around pretending to be a horse. When I got a bit older and that wasn’t acceptable, a good old fashioned game of lava was my favorite (where the ground is lava, someone is “it” and tries to tag you).

  2. That beach dog park is amazing. Looks so fun!

    I LOVE lists from the livejournal days. Or back in my days it was an email that you sent to all your friends.

    What do you get complimented on the most?
    ummmm..the last compliment i got was on my jeans. but i’m not often complimented on my style because i don’t try very hard at it.

    What is your favorite condiment?
    aioli sauce for fry dipping. or yum yum sauce.

    Where was the last place you went on vacation?
    I was just in LA a week ago. I won a sweepstakes and got to visit the set of The Good Place and hang out with Kristen Bell. It was the most amazing insane thing I’ve gotten to do. I ate lunch in her trailer and she gave me a ride back to my hotel. WTF. She’s the nicest most generous person.

    What was the last thing you printed? Is there even ink in your printer?
    i don’t own a printer. i think the last thing i printed at work were Caroline Smith tickets.

    What was your favorite childhood playground game?
    Tag! I just went to an improv camp for adults and we spent about an hour playing tag and OMG i love it so much.

    1. Oooh aioli. I also love mayo, that’s a close second to ranch for me.

      That’s SO cool that you were in LA to hang with Kristen Bell. Did you talk about sloths? 🙂

      Like

      1. No sloth talk, sadly. I was a bit star struck and all thoughts went out of my head for the day. Plus, i discovered it feels weird to bring up things you know about someone you’ve never met!

  3. I was literally just at this dog beach yesterday. It was my pup’s first ocean ~experience~. She was not the biggest fan, but she put up with it!

    What do you get complimented on the most?
    Mostly that my dog is cute. Or like saying something I’m wearing is funny (like if there are animals on it). I don’t always know if it’s a compliment but it’s all good.

    What is your favorite condiment?
    Mustard.

    Where was the last place you went on vacation?
    Morro Bay

    What was the last thing you printed? Is there even ink in your printer?
    Umm, probably some official document for work. I have to print more often than I’d like honestly.

    What was your favorite childhood playground game?
    Cops and Robbers or Capture the Flag. They’re kind of similar.

  4. You always eat so well during the week, total food inspiration!

    What do you get complimented on the most?
    – My accent.

    What is your favorite condiment?
    – Every mustard except that bright yellow stuff; my favourite is the really seedy mustard from France. I also love brown sauce.

    Where was the last place you went on vacation?
    – Sweden. Not really a holiday, was there for classes, but it was awesome.

    What was the last thing you printed? Is there even ink in your printer?
    – I have ink in my printer, but I always just use the scanner portion.

    What was your favorite childhood playground game?
    – Hide-n-seek and Simon Says.

  5. 1. What do you get complimented on the most?
    My hair, I got a new hair cut recently, I’ve never had bangs so I decided to try it out. It turnd out great
    2. What is your favorite condiment?
    I love Ranch dressing, but it’s hard to find where I live. My favorite is everything barbecuey, or smoky flavored, like smoked paprika. Oh and I just recently discovered humus, love it.
    3. Where was the last place you went on vacation?
    Hvar, Pakleni Islands Croatia, heaven on earth!
    4. What was the last thing you printed? Is there even ink in your printer?
    Some document for work, and movie tickets at home.
    5. What was your favorite childhood playground game?
    I was a total tomboy, so playing football and basketball was my favorite thing

  6. That puzzle! I’ve just been to Paris, so it’s very nice for me to see that.
    I always love seeing your homecooked meals.
    The bundled picture of them together makes my heart flutter :’)
    Such a beautiful week.

    1. My eyes or my smile.
    2. Toss up between soysauce and sriracha. (Ranch dressing is weird for me too!)
    3. Europe! 🙂
    4. A bayern ticket. (By our hotel…I dont have a printer!)
    5. Chinese garter! 🙂
