Opening weekend - 2010 World Cup - The Big Picture -

Opening weekend - 2010 World Cup - The Big Picture -
My friend, Catherine posted this link on FB and I had to spread it around. I love how soccer/futbol can unite the focus of a planet. Imagine the power of that!

Soooo glad to be back in Cali.

I find it amusing that every flight I've take from the East Coast to LA is filled with jovial, talkative people who laugh out loud on the plane. Flights east tend to be stressful and full people trying to exhaustively explain something to someone. Not flights to LA. Nooooo sir. I get on the plane and all I hear groups of 3-4 people laughing out loud, or a clueless couple talking about how much they can't wait to see their dogs, or a Romanian guy talking to his buddy about fast cars. This super-eclectic mix of people that return to California on late flights makes me aware that I DO fit in somewhere, and it's Southern California.

Fighting lizards 4

Fighting lizards 4, originally uploaded by scorrice.

These two battle it out everyday in front of my dad's house. I love watching lizards, but these two fight like Klingons! The one on the near side of the trunk lost.

New Apartment

Well, Wally, Grandma and I moved our entire apartment down the road to another one. It was the most exhausting thing I've ever done. Moving the fridge was a physical hell. I still have bruises.

The place is a mess right now. Boxes everywhere. But, we love the place. Our neighbors are international - something I love. We have a fireplace, more sun exposure, and best of all a great view of the ocean. The view from my kitchen alone is worth the increase in rent.

Now to put things in their little places and feng shui the rooms.
