Dug up these photos from 2007, when we still lived in Hawai’i. Going through old photos are a mix of emotions. First you laugh at all the crazy things you forgot you did, then you wonder how in the world time passed so quickly! It’s a nice little reminder (for me), to enjoy every little moment. I’ll probably be looking at 2011 photos, 10 years from now, wishing I could time travel back.

: ) Happy Thursday, by the way! One more day till Saturday.

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.

Fond memories.

Happy Valentines Day, everyone. I slept in today and woke up to some roses on the side of the bed. It was a nice surprise because I really wasn’t expecting anything at all. Ate lunch at home and took a walk around the block to get some coffee with Ron. There was a flock of screaming parrots perched above the coffee shop, maybe close to a hundred of them! They took turns flying back and forth between the library and the shop the whole time we were there. I didn’t know parrots existed in Pasadena! After the coffee and parrot session, we stopped in a few thrift stores and I picked up some trinkets and an old blue suitcase for $10, then went back home. The weather was abnormally warm today, a good 80 degrees. A lil’ spring teaser has left me wanting more more more!

I’ve been listening to some older music lately. Pulled a few c.ds out from the archives:

Goldfrapp-Hairy Trees
Kelli Ali- Groupie
Katie Melua-Just Like Heaven (Cure cover)
Sia-Breathe Me
Husky Rescue-City Lights
Mazzy Star-Fade Into You

I have some photos from dinner tonight, but i’ll post them tomorrow. I’m kind of exhausted and it’s already 3:40 am. Goodnight, world.
