On the bright side, I do have five whole years left to make it on this list...bah. I'm no techie anyway. I don't even know how to spell tech-y. Teccie? Tekkie? It's techie isn't it...?

For $19.95, Michel Gondry will draw a portrait of you (based off a photo you email him). Shannon said that for $19.95 she'd do a lot more. Better email her if you're curious.

day from hell

ultimate fail day.
highlights include:

1. traffic violation! complete with misdemeanor and court order! yesssss.

2. forgetting which parking lot i parked at in downtown la and spending an hour wandering the streets carrying a tool box, backpack, 6ft roll of fabric and giant manila folder.

3. no cash on hand and dying cell phone.

4. rush hour traffic.

5. crazy lady with stuffed dog yelling at me.

i'm never driving to school again.

i'll settle for the only thing i can afford:

don't be startin' no bidding wars with me.

Buy it

because it's pretty and has my name on it.

GRRR. Someone help me unpack!

...and this is only part of it.

So, school starts tomorrow. I haven't decided if I should drive or take the metro. Actually, I haven't even figured out how to take it in the first place.
Um, what else? It's gorgeous outside. Easter means nothing to me, but it is an incredible day. I think my nose is acclimating to the spring; no need for Claritin! Yippee! (cross fingers.)

I'm back in Los Angeles, for good or at least for a while. Lots of projects in the works, friends to catch up with, foods to eat, chores and errands to school starts next monday. Man, spring came along quite quickly.

baking time.

From March

i guess they look more like, rolls. pretzel rolls. but this was my attempt at baking with yeast and it wasn't as scary as i thought. relatively easy recipe to follow and i'm happy with my results, especially as a beginner. the end!
