Taking Advantage

So whilst I thought my downtown LA trip was going to be amazing yesterday afternoon, I instead, was totally slapped in the face.

As we strolled down Santee Alley, I discovered that

1.) It isn't smart to shop in downtown LA in 100 degree weather.
2.) Cheap almost always does not necessarily mean good.
3.) Santee Alley is far from cheap. geez!

I did get a cheap bamboo plant as a gift from my mom for me and Geo's new place.

it's for luck. :)

Last week of my life.

The last week of my old life anyway. Not necessarily a bad life, either. I'm just super excited to be starting anew with my love. I know we've been a huge part of each other's lives for about three years now. And I had been living with him on and off for a year. But this is different. It certainly feels different. This is the first time we'll be in our own space. To do anything we wish, and not have to worry about other people. I mean, yeah-the financial thing gets in the way. But it makes me feel good that we're at that point in our lives. He means the absolute world to this moment he is getting all of our furniture together for our move on the 26th. I can't believe that's this saturday. And he's making most of our stuff from scratch or totally revamping them to make them absolutely our own. Knowing that he cares this much, makes me even more excited. I have yet to see everything in its finished state. I'm anxious.

We went to my friend Anna's wedding yesterday. It was a beautiful wedding. Totally not my style. But then again, most weddings aren't. I'm kinda pretentious when it comes to planning things like that. I hate to admit it, but it's true. Nevertheless, the bride looked beautiful, and it was all beautiful. Sorry I'm saying beautiful too much. Blech. But of course being there made me think of my own wedding. I can't wait for the whole shabang ceremony that I have been dreaming of since I was a little girl. And yesterday, Geo and I actually began to talk about. He even gave me (and a few other people, in fact) a pseudo timeline. He says, it'll be after we both get our bachelor's degrees. Well...I get mine next year. But he doesn't get his till the year after. So, hmm...However...

It was the first time he ever actually asked me for the details of what I wanted my engagement ring to look like. We've always kind of talked about all this, but the fact that he actually asked me made me swoon. I was so elated. I told him this is what I wanted:

I didn't show him this exact one, but he gets it. I've never been a diamond kind of girl anyway. ;p

Well let's see. what else? I guess go see The Dark Knight. It's absolutely, breathtakingly, pitch-perfect. UH-MAY-ZING!

Defying Gravity

Let me start off by saying, that I haven't seen a lot of theatre that truly touch my heart to the point of tears.

Last night, I experienced it for the first time in a long time. Wicked, was absolutely everything I've dreamed of theatre and more. I came into it with an open mind, because people I've talked to either really hate it, or really love it (to the verge of obsession). But man, was it all kinds of awesome! I don't know if I'll have the same experience again with any other show. I should hope so, but I doubt it.

I'm just thankful, that I've succumbed to everybody else's pushing, and finally got a chance to see it at the Pantages before it went away for good. And now, I am truly a huge fan. Obsessed. For the time being. I don't know if my obsession will continue. But I will say, that Teal Wicks is one talented woman. And even though we got Laura Woyesz playing Glinda last night instead of Erin Mackie--she still was absolutely stellar in her performance. You wouldn't even have known that she was the standby. Anyway...that's pretty much all I have to say about that.

Loved, Loved, Loved it!

P.S.- Idina Menzel will forever be my favorite Elphaba. And I wish I got to see her on Broadway.

Trying to face the days a world apart...

But no longer...

After much anticipation, Geo and I finally got our perfect little apartment!! I feel so thankful, like my prayers have been answered. Pretty much-LIFE IS GOOD. I feel so happy, absolutely ecstatic that it all worked out for us. It was a long time coming for us. And now it's here. We're moving in a week and a half. 10 days!!! That's going to be a whirlwind.

Geo and I celebrated by getting Japanese at Wokcano. Geez, I love that place. Really great, unique tasting sushi. Yummy in my tummy. Blech. I can't believe I just wrote that. Anyway, sakes and sushi are always great for celebratin'. I savored the moment because it would probably be the last time Geo and I have a nice dinner out in a long time. That's what he says. Because we're going to be good budgeters now that we have our own place. And this time...I actually believe him.

I love my husbfriend. Haha. I tried to create a word and I can't even really pronounce it. Such a loser.

Happy, Happy, Happy.

We kissed like we invented it...

God, Guy Garvey is such a poet. A man after my own heart, I say.

Anyhoo. What a weekend, eh? It seemed like I never stopped moving. It all started on Friday. My photoshoot with Danielle was an absolute success. It was hot as hell and I was dripping sweat all over the ground, but it was worth it when I saw the shots. Click my myspace to go check them out. A video of the day will be coming soon as well.

Saturday, Geo and I went apartment hunting out in Northridge. Our future home. It was pretty 50/50. There were some that we didn't like and some that we did like but were too expensive, and then some that were just, "wtf?!" But there was one that I was absolutely gaga over. So, I'm crossing my fingers that that one will work out.

My dad's 51st birthday was yesterday, and we celebrated by going to Raffi's, eating yummy Mediterranean food, and walking around Glendale's new Americana. Ok, so it's not so new, but new for my family anyway. My dad kept saying he liked The Grove much better, and I guess from a design standpoint I would have to agree. But in terms of shopping, the Americana is better for that. We saw Wanted, which I had been dying to see since I first saw the teaser trailer. I really liked it. I don't know if my dad did, but I really did enjoy it. The rest of my review for the movie can be found on facebook.

So, that was my weekend. And lately I feel like I've just been blogging for blogging's sake. I haven't created a new post in a couple days, and the last one was a sentence long, and about bug bites. Not exactly interesting.

I'm dying to see this

But I will probably end up seeing this...

Well, hope this finds you readers shortly. Tata.

Bug Bite City

That's what I am...

Making it work...

So. Last May, George and I went to the annual Renaissance Faire. It was a wonderful day, filled with swords, turkey-legs, corsets, and cleavage. But the best part about it was that it took you back to a totally different place. There was something magical about being there. I don't know if it was the heat, or the people, but there was just something about that day that made it seem fantastical.

We go over to buy some incense from this trader, and he seemed like a jolly fellow. And he tells us he had a magic trick for us. He had George and I hold two separate pieces of string and was able to unite the two to make it one whole string. He called it a love string, saying that the trick only worked for two people who were really in love and believed in that trick. I was so enamored by it, I took the string and tied it around Geo's neck.

It still remains around his neck to this day.

I don't know how it's remained to stay so intact, since it's been through so much in the last month and a half. But it's still there. And he assures me that he will never take it off until if falls off completely, or if he absolutely HAS TO have it off.

I was just thinking about it today. Being away from him right now is super hard. It's almost unbearable. But I know that what he's doing is necessary, and I just have to be patient about it all. I know that it doesn't take a "love string" for me to know how much he loves me. But come on! I mean, the thing isn't even its original color anymore. But he still wears it just as proudly as his $300 Invicta watch. And to me that says...well, a lot.

Pack it up, we're leaving.

It's our final day at Three-Penny Farm.

Needless to say, we're in a disarray. I couldn't sleep a wink last night knowing that it would be the 2nd to last night we'd be here. So, forgive me if I'm a bit of an emotional wreck. I'm seriously going to miss everything about this place.

I get to see my family tomorrow though. It's been three weeks, and I miss them a whole bunch. Especially the sisser-pisser.

Happy 4th to everyone! Just in case I don't get to blog between now and then.

Well, sorry to cut this so short, but there is plenty of work to be done and not a lot of time to do it in.

Plus-pad thai leftovers from last night awaits.


I thought I'd leave you with this disaster.

I really wanted to give her another chance-I really did.
