From top left:
156: When I was six years old I had my birthday party at Casa Bonita. Yes, that Casa Bonita. I found this caricature my parents had done from that night while I was clearing out space under my bed…. for shoes.
158: Watching the bros run around in the backyard.
159: Some glass globes in my Mom’s sun room at dusk.
160: LoDo (Denver) on a Friday night. We saw Bill Burr at Comedy Works. I laughed the hardest at his rant about those Sarah McLachlan pet rescue commercials.
161: Moon through palm trees in Anaheim, CA.
162: The Moth story telling slam at The Air Conditioned Supper Club in Venice, CA. If you have a Moth in your city (currently LA, NY, and I think Chicago) I highly recommend you go.
163: Sunset in Los Angeles
164: The Fray with Jack’s Mannequin in Orange County, CA. I really went to see Jack’s Mannequin (who played my favorite song ever, that they NEVER play at concerts) but the Fray rocked it too. Denver bands represent!
165: Packing my things to go back to Colorado.
166: Friday night margaritas con mis padres.
167: Painting…all day.
168: The results.
169: The decorations.
170: Little bro.
171: Boulder county courthouse on Pearl St.
Let’s see….pictures from the 4th of July in this round. Clearly, I have some catching up to do. I mean, that next to last picture? That baby is a month old already. What else…Bon Iver in concert (great show), the Royal Gorge, and a trip to Salida to visit an old friend. It was a pretty good summer. Now on to fall…
Where the heck did summer go? I could swear I just got to Colorado. I think I must have underestimated my burnout level because all I’ve managed to do these past few weeks is lie around. The job search is not happening, I haven’t been reading, I’ve fallen behind on my music listening project (though I might have an awesome idea for a continuation of that elsewhere), I’ve even managed to fall behind on Mad Men and we’re only two episodes in to season 3. I have however, managed to keep up with Project 365 (for the most part) in small part due to my recent acquisition of a new digital SLR camera. Above is late June/ early July, including a trip to Huntington Library and Gardens, the Getty Center, and the road home through Las Vegas and Utah.
I’ve been stalking IMDB for the trailer for The Time Traveler’s Wife for months now:
I think I’ll try to reread it this summer before it comes out. (August 14)
You can tell by the sheer number of cat photos that I’m starting to run out of ideas. Good thing a change of scenery is coming! (By the way, that is the real DeLorean from Back to the Future. I’m 99% sure.)
