The Hi-Fives!
2008-02-07/5:38 p.m.

Coming back to LA was a whirlwind. I flew in on the red eye and then went straight to my first day of work. Then I got home and Johnny was all "Hey! You're back! I'm going to see Cloverfield, you should come!" so I just left again. Then we returned and watched the dvred things that he was saving for me. It was Wednesday before I started to relax and then my friend Anna and I decided we were going to road trip to San Francisco for the weekend. Fun!

Firstly, the Hi-Fives were playing on Friday night. THE HI-FIVES! I loved them so much from about 16-18, then very much enjoyed them after that. Too bad I never saw them play and they don't really play anymore. My friend Patrick flew in from NYC for the show, so a mere 6 hour drive seemed rational. And Anna had never been to SF (not like me, I'd spent like 12 hours there once... haha) so the deal was done.

yay yay yay!
maybe the best one.
This picture best captures how excited Patrick was!
Patrick is excited.

The show was totally fun and I got to see tons of friends both real and online. Here is the group (minus Kendra and Pat, they were taking the pictures):
the gang's all here!

The next day Anna, Patrick and I did some sightseeing and the weather cooperated.

I LOVED the mechanical museum.

We had our own tour guides- Janelle and Rotten Ron- for the afternoon:

And then we ate mexican food:
my burrito loves the usa.

It was an awesome weekend!! At the end of it I also had my very first drum kit! It's bright red with a white snare drum and it's already beaten up from going on tour, which I like. Yesterday I played two songs on the drums while singing. I'm getting better... finally. And now I have a drum kit so I can act like I know what I'm talking about, kind of. Next I will talk about the more recent 2 weeks and what I've been up to. At work, the houseguests move in today and I'm going to be swamped. I have to go in soon and I'm nervous. Wish me luck!


A note I found in a drawer.
The Extra Lens and Adultery.
Books are beautiful.
Ira Glass made me feel better about things.
