Finally got around to putting up some images from dinner last night. We ate at a restaurant in Hollywood called Cafe Des Artistes and it was all that I had hoped it would be and much more. I had a beef filet mignon w/ peppercorn sauce + french fries, an absolutely amazing french onion soup and the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert. It’s been a long long time since we’ve been out to eat and I must say, it was very worth it.
After dinner, we drove around and I took a few slow shutter photos of the freeway. Just by some strange impulse, I felt like standing on a cold freeway overpass and balancing my camera with no tripod at 12 am. It was fun and nice to be able to spend time just driving around and talking about random things. I’m always up for some random babble.
Tonight I picked up a bunch of ingredients to make Tonjiru (Japanese soup). I’ll post the results tomorrow morning when I get up. For now, I’m gonna read a little and fall asleep. I’m re-reading “You shall know our velocity” By Dave Eggers. I have completely forgotten EVERYTHING about this book, so it’s kinda like reading it for the first time.
Also, I’ve been listening to this song again: Ohia-Two Blue Lights
It reminds me of summer nights in Hawaii, under multi-colored christmas lights, watching the
rain and fog fill up in the valley from my bedroom window.
