I thought I’d share these… so very ‘Godfather in the haunted woods’. We’ll have my brother’s graduation party here come summer. We hear he might still exist somewhere on the coast there, personally haven’t seen hide nor hair since christmas.
Imagine this place lit up with red paper lanterns in the dark of the night. Could be glorious, the stuff of movies…
I’m completely and hopelessly addicted to Pinterest these days, you’ll find me there 80% of my day: http://pinterest.com/lakoivu/pins/
I’m feeling an itch to redo my blog design once more… or maybe my portfolio website. We’ll see. Merry Easter all.
I’m afraid I’ve failed you all on the cool city pictures I promised. I had an amazing time at the Boxworks Seminar in SF this week, but didn’t even notice until the after party that I had no battery in my camera. Hahah… fail. So all I have to share with you are these little snapshots I took on my iphone.
Speaking of the after party at the Bentley Reserve, what little I saw/drank of it was the most amazingly swanky occasion I’ve been to in a long time. I had to run and catch the last metro out of the city before the band had a chance to start playing though. Sigh. So much for seeing Third Eye Blind :p
I met a lot of enormously funny IT people (IT Crowd anyone?) got my first ever convention swag bag, and was all around fabulous and competent in smart society…(hahah yeah right, that’s me standing in the elevator lobby pretending to check my email on my phone so as to avoid socializing…)
But best of all, they gave all of us all new Motorola Xoom tablets! I’m loving it, especially all the Google integration so I don’t need to sync all my random calendars/emails/readers/etc separately like on my iphone, it’s all there! Still <3 you Apple, I’ve not forsaken you altogether, I swear.
As promised, some photos from Lake Arrowhead and Crestline… well, a select few.
I’m going to be an awful narcissist and post a few photos Mike took of me.
I came down with some kind of awful plague of a sinus infection while watching some Star Trek last night (yeah, that fast!), feeling rather pathetic and snotty. Ew.
This handsome fellow is Apollo.
Just got back from a weekend in Lake Arrowhead, it was nice to forget about the drama and turn off my phone for a few days (aside from getting lost and needing the GPS a few times). A certain wedding we attended there involved a slight garnish of juvenile ex-related drama, but what can you do… besides doll yourself up and make them seethe. I won’t stoop to their level, I swear hahah.
Am now moved out of my apartment for the most part and just need to clean it thoroughly. Living out of my car and a suitcase at my boyfriend’s house until further notice.
Some pictures from the weekend to follow.
My pop and I went on a little wine and photography excursion to Sonoma and Napa yesterday. It was supposed to be somewhat of a goodbye family/friends affair since my dad will leave next week (I’ll explain later), but following yet another falling out/feud situation and some unfortunate scheduling mishaps, it ended up being just the two of us.
We ran about the countryside gabbing in Finnish and snapping photos of everything wonderfully mundane. I’m usually mortified if anyone takes me for a tourist (even when I am), but it’s infinitely less embarrassing to pretend to be a foreign visitor in your neighborhood than some tipsy geek taking photos of their wine glass heheh.
Have I introduced you to the French Laundry chicken coop? Well this is it. They have really cute fat little healthy chickens. It’s about as close to eating at the French Laundry as I’ve come (since the last time I went snooping through their garden anyway). As a joke we decided we had the gall to pull off at Yountville, walk right in and ask the Maitre d’ for a table. The look on his face was rather priceless as he tried to politely explain to us that A.) it was currently in-between lunch and dinner service, and B.) they book weeks and months in advance, and that even if they did have an opening, it would be filled from a wait list. Hahah, at least I can say I’ve seen their door.
