This is my family’s turtle that we have had since my older brother was just a baby. His name is Dumpy and he likes to eat hibiscus flowers, lettuce, and pretty much all sorts of vegetables and fruits. His face is stained with blackberries that are growing in my parent’s backyard.
I went to dinner with Colter and Cody last night at the Village Idiot on Melrose. I’ve only had breakfast there before which I didn’t really enjoy, but dinner and dessert was quite delicious. I had the veggie pie and a gingersnap cookie with bourbon gelato, both of which are worth checking out if you happen to be grabbing dinner there. However the highlight of the meal was my drink which was very reminiscent of the drink I had up in Portland last year that blew me away. The “Hot Flash” as they called it, was partida tequila with serrano chili, agave nectar, lime juice, and ginger beer. Super spicy but really refreshing surprisingly. I recommend it.
I went to the Yeasayer show at the Music Box in Hollywood last night. They were awesome and really gave their music additional life and energy in their live set. I loved it. It was also maybe the first show I have been to by myself and it only felt weird at first, but once the bands started playing, it really didn’t seem to make a difference that I was there alone. However, I am glad I had my iPhone during the set changes. Thanks Alien Blue.
Over the weekend, a bunch of friends and I went camping in Joshua Tree and were having fun with long exposures and light writing. After a while, we started drawing over people with a laser pen and ended up with really neat pictures. While I don’t have any of those to show you since Colter was the one taking the pictures, I do have this one that I made tonight for my 365 Project. 50 second exposure at f/2.5 and 100 iso.
