Shiny and New
I came home today and discovered I had a brand new kitchen faucet. It’s lovely. It’s shiny. And it made me wonder what other new stuff I should expect to find when I return home. For instance, will I come home and find a brand new boyfriend at some point? Because I might need a little bit of warning in order to properly enjoy that kind of gift… and not… you know… accidentally spork him to death when I mistake him for a random intruder who has decided to plant his ass on my couch and shoes on my hope chest.
Apparently, Los Angeles is larger than the 5 mile radius around my apartment that I’ve thus far discovered. There is a magical place called “Silver Lake” and there appears to be an incredibly festive event going on this weekend. Details are here: http://silverlakejubilee.com/. Now, I’m not sure if the lakes on that side of the city are actually silver… or even if there is actually a lake (note to self: find out if I need passport to travel to other side of city). What I do know is that there is a ridiculously good bakery putting up a tent there named Mardy’s Munchies (http://mardysmunchies.com/home). I have a deep and abiding love for their red velvet cupcakes and a special place in my heart for their bundts. I hear rumors of a red velvet bundt cake that my brain can’t even comprehend. Sure, some people say that my love for the tasty treats is unnatural, but I’d like to point out that they only use natural ingredients, so clearly my critics are mistaken. The lure of these delectables is strong, and I will be crossing the oceans (or Sunset… whatever) to partake in the Mardy’s joy and perhaps take in the bands, the lit and work on wandering silently through a crowd without making eye contact (which totally counts as being social in my world).
