Things have been pretty quiet around Witty Title Here ever since I left Baltimore for the West Coast. Aside from the amazingly cheap Trader Joe’s wine and the girl I almost fought in a public restroom, there hasn’t been much worth blogging about, quite honestly. (For the record, I waited a solid five minutes outside of the bathroom before showing any impatience toward said woman, whom I’m pretty sure was taking a sink bath.) My apartment hunt with John took two solid weeks of open houses, broken hearts, and application fees before finding the place that would become our new home. And I’m happy to report that we finally found a landlord willing to take our money in Silver Lake, a neighborhood so cool and hipstery that I fear they’ll sense my flannel is from Target. But in all seriousness, our new neighborhood and street are so great that I can finally start to enjoy this whole L.A. experience. Move-in day is Wednesday!
In the meantime, I owe you a few interweb finds. Here’s what I’ve been reading when I’m not fighting off bathroom hogs:
Here’s an interview I did with Ren over at Her Silent Musings. I love her thoughtful questions (and her in general).
This bear will make your day.
Here’s an amazing tour of an orbital lab.
According to this post, all of those animated Pixar movies we love are connected in a very interesting way.
You’re welcome and I’m sorry. The chicken you and I both are eating is contaminated with arsenic.
So cool: This abandoned Walmart is now America’s largest library.
I don’t know about you, but I love the Pastafarian religion. (You can be religious and still appreciate the humor here, am I right?)
As an L.A. transplant, I had to include this list (especially since I intend to cross off a few items): Los Angeles’ oldest, thriving restaurants.
And that’s all for today! I have a lot on my plate this week, what with moving in and all. But I can’t wait to give you a tour of the new place and hopefully have much more to write about now that I’m finally establishing myself in an L.A. neighborhood. Until then, have a great week!
