so after taking a day for myself to go around and run errands, walk around in the sun, smoke a little to relax and going out with a pretty good friend for dinner, i feel immeasurably better. i ate good food and soaked up some carefree-ness that i obviously needed.
since its kind of a crappy day out and the only thing i’m going to be doing today is taking carlos out to lunch [sorry dude, i was just way too tired!], i’m going to spend the day doing homework, drinking coffee, watching movies and

what a beaut!

what a beaut!

relaxing. i just bought funny face and breakfast at tiffany’s, and i’m also considering pineapple express. then again, there is always netflix. [watch helvetica, the documentary. though slightly boring, it will be super interesting if you’re into design even in the least.]
so on thursday night, i went to this amazing indian place in the tenderloin with daniella and jack. it was byob and a lot of fun, but guess what i found on the street? A TYPEWRITER! and not just any typewriter, but a working, italian typewriter from the ’50’s with working ribbon still in it! i’ve been playing with it on and off all weekend and on friday night, i made valentines on it. its a dream. i’ve always wanted one and it was like a sign when i found it. plus, when i googled it, it was known to be the journalist’s typewriter of choice back in the day, so maybe i’m right? :]
last night, i went to the elbo room and [FINALLY!] weird fish with daniella. weird fish is surprisingly super amazing. we got way too much food, but a chance to try everything. both of their soups [spicy tortilla soup and clam chowder] were really good, but i liked the spicy tortilla soup slightly better. the yo-yo’s, which are fried dill pickles served with two different sauces, WERE SO GOOD. seriously, i know you’re thinking, “what the hell?” but they were awesome. and lastly, the fish and chips were to die for. slaw, salty french fries and sweet potato fries as a basket base? call how the newsroom looks all the time.me a fat kid, but i’m sold. and the tilapia and cod were both delicious and flaky. sorry i didn’t take pictures — we were having a pretty serious conversation and the place was cute but no bigger than the size of a cardboard box. check out weird fish! its surprisingly affordable and really delish. i’m still looking to go to msf in the coming weeks.
the other thing that bummed me out was i found a pair of leather ferragamo flats at a thrift store for $14 [i’m pretty sure the girl upcharged me from the original price, but ev.] and they’re like a 1/2 size too big! i want to cry, i loved them a lot. they even had a bow on the toes with a gold ferragamo piece between them. :[ if anything, i might try and sell them on ebay or to someone i know for the same price. i am determined to find a pair and will keep looking on ebay to find one that fits. i also need to repair this amazing vintage dress i picked up last month…there is always so much to do!
expect more frequent updates…since i will be in the newsroom a lot and because of circumstances i will have a bit more time on my hands, i will work to give you guys some more content.
have a lazy sunday.

ps: also, if joaquin phoenix got off the smack and realized he’s a great music video director, maybe he wouldn’t be renouncing his acting career, trying to rap or showing up at san francisco planning commission meetings.

this is my favorite by them. favorite favorite favorite. its as if shoegaze and the smashing pumpkins fucked non-stop for a week and had octuplets. its that good. i can’t wait for the new album, or when they come back to town again. [long story short, carlos’ boss is the aunt of the keyboardist which means FREE TIX.]
but on a side note, who watches music videos anymore anyway?
