Listening to a really great podcast lately: notesfromspain.com

Am trying to figure out an easy way to podcast my impending Iberia trip. Without having to bring the precious iPoddy. Hmmmm.

My new room. Love it love it love it.

I ate a good few pieces of cheese tonight at the Hollywood Bowl–a schlot of Cotswald [aka Double Gloucester with chives and onions] and Drunken Goat. Thank you, England and Spain. You done good. Also partook of smoked oysters and clams for the first time. I like.

Came home to find my Lensbaby on my front step. Thanks a lot UPS. As in “Ups, we left the package in front of your door, didn’t you get it?” Qué fastidio. Thank God it was not swiped off my front door step. Bitterness toward UPS set aside, I can’t wait to use my new Lensbaby! I have a 20D in possession, so hopefully will have time to give it a test run tomorrow before I shoot a weddin’ on Saturday.

I am showing signs of age. As I was out tonight, I got really pretty tired at 11:00pm. I am getting old, for sure.

Long live summer nights at the Bowl!
Happy Birfday Carey!

Leftovers for a late lunch: cold curry chicken salad thrown into a bowl of penne followed by four lamentably small bites of butterscotch tapioca pudding.

Am looking for a copy of Wim Wender’s “The Lisbon Story” (1994) to rent before keili and I hit the streets of Lisbon in August. Can’t even find a copy on Netflix. Anyone know of very very good video stores around OC? Kind of like Amoeba in LA. Is OC completely devoid of cool!?!?!

A night of ramen.

Going, going, gone.
A belly full of ramen = contentment. 🙂

Anyone been to Barcelona, Lisbon or the Algarve (southern coast of
Portugal) recently?  If so, please send names of worthy
restaurants or coffeehouses or chocolaterias my way.

Countdown to Iberia: 26 days.

Haven’t updated in a while.  Just moved to Tustino to keili’s new
digs.  Lovin’ it.  Have been on vaccacion ever since the
crazy school year ended on June 17th.  Goodbye IEPs, hello free
time.  Am basking in the lovely free time sleeping in, actually
spending more than 5 minutes in the kitchen cooking and learning
Portuguese.
