Dad bought some Ronco product thing that you pour batter into and it makes donut rings with the batter, so we got out the Fry Daddy and made donuts! They were very tasty.

There are a whole bunch of mushrooms in my front yard, almost in a fairy ring. They are so cool and I had fun photographing them this afternoon:

clicky for fungus! )

I wanted to go to Union Station, Olvera Street, Philippe for lunch and then Chinatown, but despite saying that it would be partly cloudy with a 10% chance of rain, it was raining on and off and I didn't want to get my camera wet, so I didn't make it to Chinatown.

But I did do the others, and here are the pics! Let the mushrooms in my front yard welcome you in:


clicky for nostalgia and fiesta! )

I decided to go see a movie, and I went and saw The Town and it was pretty good. Kudos to Ben Affleck for both his directing skills, and weirdly enough, being really fucking sexy to boot. And I don't usually think he's very attractive, but in this movie I wanted to jump his bones through the entire flick.

And Jon Hamm, sexy mofo to the extreme. I loved seeing Don Draper all scruffy and tough guy. It was awesome.

I recommend it. Thumbs up!

I have beaten Plants vs Zombies so many times I had a ton of coins. so I bought this tree of wisdom and it told me that if you type the word "future" while battling zombies you get zombies from the future!

click to be spoiled! )

I'm watching a bunch of episodes of "Ancient Aliens" from the History channel about evidence that aliens visited us a long time ago and there are stories in the bible, the Bhagavad Gita and other ancient texts and art that shows aliens, up to and including ancient nuclear battles. So, It got me wondering how you hyenas think.

Was an amazing movie. I loved it so much. Everyone in it was so good, and the movie was directed so intimately - so nakedly - that it just sucked you in for every minute. I highly recommend it to everyone. Oscar material for sure.

I was driving home and about 7 miles up ahead on the curve I see smoke. I hope it isn't the beginnings of a wildfire.

Then the traffic stops:


what's up ahead? )

I hope they get it under control and out quickly.

On [ profile] ohnotheydidnt they posted Lindsay's address at the jail, so I decided for some reason yesterday to write her a letter. It basically said good luck and that she has talent (she actually does) and that I hope she finds the right thing to help her make her life better.

Is that weird? Now that I think about it I'm kind of embarrassed.

I did it on a whim.

Well, I hope she enjoys the good wishes and it helps her pass the time on her 14 days in jail.

I still don't exactly know how I feel about the film. It totally blew my mind. If you like mind bending films, definitely go see it, and see it on the big screen. A lot of the awesomeness of the film would be lost on a TV.
palsgraf_polka: (OMG Yay)
I don't think I've been to a county fair in at least 2 decades. But Mom, Dad and I are going to the Santa Barbara County Fair in Santa Maria on Saturday to see The Beach Boys! It will be an interesting experience to say the least. I'll bring my camera and take all sorts of weird pictures. I'm looking forward to this I want to eat deep fried things that shouldn't be deep fried. And see cows and shit.

Isn't he/she beautiful? Too bad it was in a dark hallway so the picture doesn't have good light. Thankfully the moth didn't mind my flash.

This is a 10 minutes very well spent.

This song came on my iPod this morning on my way to work, and here it is, 25 years later, and the song is still fresh and relevant. That's hard to find.

Opportunities - Pet Shop Boys

I've got the brains, you've got the looks
Let's make lots of money
You've got the brawn, I've got the brains
Let's make lots of -

I've had enough of scheming and messing around with jerks
My car is parked outside, I'm afraid it doesn't work
I'm looking for a partner, someone who gets things fixed
Ask yourself this question: Do you want to be rich?

I've got the brains, you've got the looks
Let's make lots of money
You've got the brawn, I've got the brains
Let's make lots of money

You can tell I'm educated, I studied at the Sorbonne
Doctored in mathematics, I could have been a don
I can program a computer, choose the perfect time
If you've got the inclination, I have got the crime

Oh, there's a lot of opportunities
If you know when to take them, you know?
There's a lot of opportunities
If there aren't, you can make them
Make or break them

I've got the brains, you've got the looks
Let's make lots of money
Let's make lots of -
(Aahhhhh) Money
(Aahhhhh - Di du da di da bu di ba)

You can see I'm single-minded, I know what I could be
How'd you feel about it, come and take a walk with me?
I'm looking for a partner, regardless of expense
Think about it seriously, you know, it makes sense

Let's (Got the brains)
Make (Got the looks)
Let's make lots of money (Oohh money)
(Let's) You've got the brawn
(Make) I've got the brains
Let's make lots of money (Oohh money)

I've got the brains (Got the brains)
You've got the looks (Got the looks)
Let's make lots of money (Oohh money)
