Brother meets LA

Standard

The past four days I’ve had my brother with me here in LA. We did the Griffith Observatory, The Getty, The Getty Villa, Warner Bros Studio tour, and countless movies (our usual). We had so much fun just hanging out and being grandmas and stuffing our faces with delicious food that the extended weekend felt like four minutes rather than four days.

Having my brother here felt so normal and comfortable. I can always be myself around him no matter how weird or stupid or obnoxious and he will always love me (or lurve me as we say). I can’t wait for him to come back and visit again – here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip.

PS – That is the real Harry Potter sorting hat on the Warner Bros tour. I got Gryffindor (YESSSSS) and Brother got Slytherin.

PPS – Yes that is the actual real Central Perk couch from Friends. I was totally freaking out when we sat on it and fangirled completely.

PPPS – Irrelevant to the photos, but we went and saw the Lego Movie and it was one of the best animated movies I’ve ever seen. It was hilarious, not only for kids but for adults too. And the Everything is Awesome song has been stuck in my head for going on 5 days now.

Happy Halloween

Standard

Happy Halloween to all of the people who decide to wear ironic and hilarious costumes. If you’re one of those people who try to dress up sexy, go home, put on some clothes and try again next year.

I’m not too much of a Halloween person so my plans for tonight are pretty grandma-esque. I’m planning on wearing my cat ears (because any chance I have to wear them, I seize), maybe putting some eyeliner on my face to emulate whiskers (because I’m too poor/lazy to buy real face paint), blending up some apricot margaritas (because orange means Halloween and it’s only logical), painting my baby pumpkins (because they are adorable and carving is too hard) and watching Harry Potter movies with my roommate (because we both hate scary movies and Harry Potter is the shit).

So you can have your Halloween parties and parades and everything else crazy that comes with this holiday. I’ll be planted on my couch sipping an apricot marg with my cat ears on. Let me tell you, I’ve been looking forward to this all damn month.
