its beautiful and warm out today in sf, so if you’re reading this post, i suggest you get off your computer and go to dolores! i just finished a warm load of laundry and i’m in need of some catch up work, which makes me sad. but go out, grab an ice cream cone and go slip-n-sliding with your friends for me!

♥ so i’ve been obsessed with this sign last week ever since i saw it in one of the photo essays on the selby. i’m super stoked that i finally found a place i can buy it from online. they’re a little steep, but i think if i frame them all, they’ll last forever!

♥ gala over at iCiNG published a list awhile back of not-so-typical date activities. i’m totally in love with it and i think its a great place to grab inspiration from, whether you’re in need of some romance or trying to rekindle the flame.

the indie mart is coming up in a week and i couldn’t be more excited. i’ll be tabling with stu in the warm sun and there will be lots of shit talking, lots of laughs and lots of bloody marys. i’m hoping to spend a little cash and a little time with the cuties that frequent, including the lovely kelly, who is basically who i wanna be when i grow up. if you’re in sf, this is a FREE event where you can drink, shop, see some local bands and get a number, all in one place. trust me, its where you should be next weekend. ;]

also, on an ending note, i went and caught kelli rudick at amnesia with stu this week and the girl has got skills. i still wonder how she’s not traveling the world, but her loop station use is pretty awesome.

now go out and chase the sun!



…and, i’m back.

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?



off on the right foot friday!

things that i am loving/talking about/needing to list at the moment:

shawerma! its basically a great mediterranean wrap with beef, lamb, hummus, tahini sauce, tomatoes, parsley and onions all wrapped in this amazing flat bread. and the hot sauce paste they put on it is TO DIE FOR. seriously, if you’re in the city, go to truly mediterranean. it looks a little dodgy but it was probably one of the yummiest things i’ve had in ages.
my digital camera. its just a point and shoot, canon powershot, and i didn’t realize its potential until last night. after being out with stuart and fumbling with my camera over and over, i realized that i’ve been lazy and that i don’t really know how to work it, despite the fact it has all manual settings. crazy right? so one of my goals before i go back to school is to get my digital photography back in the biz.
i miss this show and its probably one of the best episodes i’ve ever seen. there are more links on youtube as well. this is probably what i’m going to be doing all afternoon.
sit ups! i’ve been doing over 100 per day and i’ve lost an inch over the past couple of weeks. its slow progress, but when you think about it, half an hour of situps and crunches isn’t too big of a commitment. i’m hooked!
— i will probably be here on saturday night. i’m telling everyone right now — get there early!
i’m thinking about getting one of these. am i crazy, just like the gav, in thinking these are a good idea? i think its just fun, being a card carrying member of sf. god, i’m such a schmuck.
–because of a lawsuit filed against department store cosmetic counters, they are being forced to give away around $175 MILLION DOLLARS IN FREE COSMETICS. though some have been saying you need to sign up ahead of time or that you need to have bought something in the time period listed, its bullshit! just show up and get your free shit! who wants to come with me? emma? kayla? lets get free stuff!
–and finally, i round out with this. so good.

happy friday everyone! i hope i helped all of you start your weekend off right.
