haiku friday

where are those rainbows?
unicorns, anyone? hm?
candy? you out there?

i see a mountain
of administrative work
that needs to get done.

i see clouds and smog,
and a panel that just will
not come together.

yesterday, today, tomorrow


  • Not a great day. Traffic was brutal, I got nowhere on my projects at work, and it just generally kind of stunk.
  • On the other hand, Buddy slept great and was so much when I got home last night. 
  • Also, I made this chicken chili and it was effin good. Excuse my language. 
  • Also, I had a lovely glass of wine after work with a pal of mine. 

  • Traffic wasn't so bad, but I also mostly took the streets to work. Fascinating, I know. Contain yourself.
  • Looking like another gorgeous day in Southern California. Seems to have cooled down slightly from the 80s to the 70s, so that's nice. 
  • Just ate "Chia Seeds" in my yogurt for breakfast. What are those you ask? I am not sure. 

  • Gosh who knows what tomorrow will bring? A lot of good stuff I hope. Candy and unicorns and rainbows to all involved.

haiku friday

blazing, sweltering,
unseasonable, sunny,
tropical, scorching.

today, sunny and 
very warm with a high of 
eighty four. winds light.

roasting, feverish, 
stuffy, blistering, torrid

I took this picture outside of juvenile hall this morning. 

There are many better pictures, like this one from the LA Times

Anyways, the kid plead guilty and so I didn't have to testify. Testify! Though I would have. After he robbed me, he ripped a necklace off an 84 year old lady and shoved her to the ground, breaking her hip. So yeah, he's not a nice person.

Wednesday, January 15, 2014


tomorrow morning i have to go to court to testify against the kid who robbed me in broad daylight in front of my building in August. 

that's gonna stink! 

8:30 am in juvenile court here in the good city of los angeles.

did i tell you i got a subpoena to appear in court? yeah, you heard me. i had a cop calling me from downstairs in my office building to give me the paper that said i have to show up in court.

and it had a big old blown up picture of my face on it.

crazy, right?

i guess i didn't tell you about getting robbed, did i? 

see, i told you i owe you a lot of information. 

that story, to follow.

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow


  • Had a bit of a cold, not gonna lie. Know who doesn't care if I'm sick? Buddy.

  • Feel a lot better, but man it is SO HOT here it is not even funny. Let me tell you, America (?), it is so gross to have the sniffles and a cold and it be all windy and hot. YUCK. 
  • Working from home this morning, waiting for the garbage disposal guy. 

  • Should be feeling super by tomorrow, which is good because I have an event starting at 8 am downtown, and then will cap the day with a board meeting in the evening. Yay!

happy new year!

Look at this, guys! 

You ever get one of these flowers from someone? 

It usually blooms once and then it is gone for good. Well, I got this for my beeday last year (so 2012!) and I brought it to work. I googled how to care for it, which included, once the bloom was gone, letting it completely dry out for at least six months. 

Anyways, I've been back to watering it and I thought I saw this little bud forming before I left for break and when I came back today Lo! A wee flower.

Happy 2014 indeed!
