I should have gotten one of those little tin wind up toys! I swear, the Irvine Antique Market never disappoints. Word to the wise: the market moved locations. Instead of being at IVC it's now located at the Great Park. Open every first Sunday of the month.
Lola scrubbing banana leaves to make banana leaf wrapped Filipino treats
Way better than Taco Bell. Deluxe chili cheese fries are my kryptonite.
An unskateable ramp at rvca + a very cold evening
The night that permanently destroyed my hearing. Just kidding (but really...). Dinosaur Jr. playing Bug and a Henry Rollins hosted Q&A session. So good but SO.LOUD. Never again without earplugs.
After the concert we got to go backstage (shout out to the Templetons for hooking it up) and..things got kind of awkward? Funny in a way, nonetheless, so I don't even care. Not pictured: Henry Rollins surfing the 'net in the hallway.
Every year some of my best gal pals from high school get together to throw a holiday dinner. Our unifying thread?We were all theater geeks and/or chorus nerds. The truth comes out! Anyway, we ate dinner, looked at some lights, and scooted on down to a bar that had karaoke. Singing Train's seminal hit, "Drops of Jupiter" was, I think, the perfect way to end our evening together.
In case I don't post again, I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!! Grant and I are going up to the mountains with some friends to soak in the hot springs (like we do every year) and play with animals. Maybe we'll even go crystal hunting? Who knows.
See you in 2012, stay safe! :)
