Dinner With The Sisters

These pictures need no explaination. Mostly because I wouldn't be able to give you one.

Welcome to the Hotel Cal-I-Fornia!

Actually we didn't stay at the Hotel California, we stayed at Robert's friend Laurie's house! And I must say it was beautiful. We went to Cali from the 9th to the 12th, and I really did not want to come back to AZ. It was so good to see green landscape and actual trees again! We went to LA, went to a Dead Man's Party show, and spent an afternoon in Newport Beach. All in all it was a very relaxing vacation, and good to finally see big bad L.A. that I always hear so much about. Well, the verdict is, it ain't so bad. It was much smaller than I pictured it, and I think it's more ghetto in West Phoenix than anywhere there.
So anyway, here's some pictures from the trip!

Here's me and Kane, on Laurie's back patio very early in the morning. We both look tired, but check out Laurie's view! Schweet!

One of the many rooms in Laurie's house. I want her to decorate my place someday!!

Me and Brianna made many friends during our short stay in Newport Beach.

My one and only picture of the Hollywood sign. This was taken from Brianna's car while speeding through downtown LA. It was actually hard to find a place to take a picture of the sign, but I kind of felt like I needed one anyway.

This is PJ. She was a very sweet and entertaining hostess.

Please ignore the bad picture of the power lines, but this is Sierra Madre, where I totally want to move to! Tree lined streets and mountain views and a cute little area that looks like Red Bank, NJ. It felt like home somehow. The clouds are kind of covering the mountain, but it looked really cool.

Here I am with Robert, Brianna and Laurie, laughing about how the bobcat that lives in Laurie's back yard had just dragged off a baby. Well, people shouldn't just leave those things laying around!
Well, enough pictures. I have to finish stringing a necklace for work now, even though it is late and I should be in bed. Oh well.
OH! Our movie, No. 12 is on the On The Lot website!!! For those of you who haven't heard of it, On The Lot is a reality show/competition for young filmmakers. I think it airs in the spring, and they're going to start selecting contestants soon. If you have time, please log on and put up some comments! (Preferrably good ones!!) Thanks bitches!

There hasn't been much going on with me lately, hence my no posting, but I figured I'd bore you all with the details of what I am up to.
I put my Brak necklace up for sale on eBay, since it has seen no action on I am hoping it will not only generate interest in the necklace itself, but also in the other stuff I am trying to sell. I need money! Plus, I have so much cool jewelry around here that I make and then shove into a drawer somewhere. It deserves to be worn, damn it.
Also speaking of money, I finally sat down and calculated all of my debt a few weeks ago, and have been slowly recovering from my mild heart attack. It's not too bad, but it's still more than I should ever have. Debt has been heavy on my mind lately, since I am determined to one day get a handle on all of these bills and be in control of my money, not the other way around. So far I've made really good progress, so I am hoping I can keep it up and one day have no trouble getting a mortgage for a real, actual house of my very own. I'll get there.
Aside from that I have been cleaning up. Since Kane and I moved in to this condo, the mini-blinds in our bedroom have been coated with dust and some weird sludge-y type crap. It's gross, I tried to clean them once but quickly gave up when the cleaner was mixing with the dust-cakes and turning it into mud and smearing worse than before. So tonight I filled a big bucket with soapy water and cleaned the shit out of those blinds, and to my surprise they are actually white. Yay! Now I don't have to keep the curtains drawn in shame all the time! (See, I told you I would bore you.)
On Friday after work Kane and I are leaving to go to L.A. with Brianna and Robert for the weekend. I am excited to go and finally see it all for myself, and see if I could live there. But I am also scared, because I feel a lot of pressure to like it. Not from Kane or anybody, but from myself. But really I just want out of Arizona and a brand new start somewhere new, but I am trying to stay open to California and ignore all the negative crap I keep hearing. We'll see.
One last thing I did was I watched the Puppy Bowl yesterday. With a vacant yet exuberant smile on my face. Especially during the kitty halftime show. In case you missed it, you can see the highlights here.
See? Much more fun than football, and much cuter than watching Prince sashay his tiny ass across the stage in the rain!
