Tar Pits

1. Sue and I were walking to the fancy Marie Calendars restaurant to have a delicious lunch before going to the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA) when I mentioned to her that, “Gee, it really smells like tar out here.” She then pointed out that we were, in fact, walking directly across the street from The La Brea Tar Pits. Funny! But seriously, that shit smells like tar.

I Went to California and I Had Fun

Gang at Don Cucos
Me Having Fun In LA, Left to Right: Ryan, Me, Sue, Nathan, Wendy, Jason, Seven, Anna. Fun!

I know it’s been a while since I updated this thing. I hope you missed me as much as I missed you. I was away because I flew out to California to surprise my Dad for Father’s Day, because that is just the kind of amazing daughter I am.

Thank goodness he lived, because accidentally killing my Dad on Father’s Day would have really been a drag.

Before I went down to Orange County (where my parents live) for the Big Father’s Day Surprise, I had the chance to spend a couple of days in LA hanging out with my West coast peeps, eating many delicious foods and getting way too much sun. It was awesome. And you should see this hot pink, Indian silk print slip dress I got on Venice Beach for $10! What a bargain! I Love California!

Please enjoy a collection of rad pictures of me having fun in the sun after the jump.
