7:30pm on April 27, 2010 in Oceanside, CA.

i met some fun friends for drinks and food at the harbor today, and i couldn't resist sticking around for some photos after the sunset. i just wish i could've stayed for s'mores by the bonfires!

i finally finished my laundry. it just took me two days :-)

to help make up for a sad-looking picture yesterday, i offer this token of love :-)



~11:30pm on April 24, 2010 at home.

and this was my saturday.



midday on April 23, 2010 at home.

and thus begins my weekend indoors.... since i started feeling quite under the weather, my weekend plans have suddenly all been canceled. sadly, that also means i'm pretty confined for the daily pics too. soooooooo here's a shot of a ceramic sun that i got in mexico forever ago and have had resting on my patio ever since. i liked the way the sun was hitting it and the wall :-)



~8:00pm on April 22, 2010 at home.

for a while i'd been wanting to try multiple exposure shots, so here it is! the location's not the most exciting, but i'm happy with how it turned out. it definitely flexed my photoshop muscles! :-)



mid-afternoon on April 21, 2010 in Vista, CA.

i like purple. i like orange. i do not like beige/yellow checkered patterns, but i didn't have a choice about that. considering that it's office furniture, though, it's not so bad...

What goes better with design lectures and beer than YODA?! I can't tell you what the point was to having Yoda on the slide, but at the time it made perfect sense. :-)

7:45pm on April 19, 2010 in La Jolla Shores, CA.

it started as a quick drive to watch the sunset and snap a few pics.... an hour later my feet were covered in sand, my jeans were soaked up to the knees, and i had a big smile on my face :-)



~9:00pm on April 18, 2010 at home.

we had some quick rain showers tonight, and i couldn't have been happier to hear the water hitting my window...



~8:00pm on April 17, 2010 at home.

the "highlight" of my saturday was finding some water drops coming from the can light in my kitchen ceiling. turns out my upstairs neighbor had an overflowing toilet directly above the kitchen. great.

6:00pm on April 16, 2010 at home.

so last night i went to a concert.... had a few beers.... came home and felt like a midnight snack. so naturally i popped a pizza in the toaster oven! it was taking a bit longer than expected to cook, so i went to my room and sat down to watch tv for a few minutes while it finished. three hours later, i wake up and realize that the pizza is still in the toaster oven and i'm lucky the place hasn't caught on fire. i rush to turn off (and unplug) the oven before getting back to sleep.

today i got home from work and saw the burned pizza sitting on my counter. i expected to find a solid black disc, but was shocked to see that it wasn't all black! kinda made me think of a goth version of a pizza..... if you could find black tomatoes and black broccoli.




~10:00pm on April 15, 2010 in Solana Beach, CA.

i went to a show at Belly Up Tavern tonight... the show was great, and i always like going there. the difference this time, though, was that i took my SLR with me instead of just my pocket camera. so i spent a good amount of time before (and during) the show playing with my camera. this shot is of part of the wall of poster art.

.....because sometimes you just need a few drinks to get over that mid-week hump.....

this is probably my favorite mug, as seen by the light of the tv :)

i LOVE yams. i got these at a small fruit/veggie stand on the side of the road while driving on highway 79 towards Julian, and they are the most orangest yams ever! i would've taken a picture of them after they were cooked too, but i was too busy eating them :)

~1:00pm on April 11, 2010 in Point Loma, CA.

you'd think that after 6 years of living in a city i would've gone to all the major monuments, but today was my first time going to see the lighthouse at the Cabrillo National Monument Park. it's small, but worth a look. and it totally put me in the mood for a trip to New England!!

~7:00pm on April 10, 2010 in San Diego, CA.

i spent my afternoon with friends at a pub, watching a soccer game and then hanging around for more beer and food. at the end of the afternoon, i couldn't resist getting a picture of this barrel on the patio. i'm just a sucker for anything that looks old and beat up....



6:00pm on April 9, 2010 at home.

i wasn't home for very long today... probably a total of 15 minutes. so here's a peek of what i did in those 15 minutes. after all, i couldn't go out without making myself presentable, right??

~9:00pm on April 8, 2010 at home.

so that fabulous polaroid setting that i talked about a couple of days ago was put to the test tonight! my childhood friend, herbie, generously offered to be the test model.



~7:30pm on April 7, 2010 in La Jolla Shores, CA.

i hope this picture teaches everyone a lesson: always look in your rear view mirror, because you never know what great views you'll get :-)



~8:00pm on April 6, 2010 at home.

so i downloaded an application for my new phone. it's called "FxCamera" and it's super duper fun. my favorite setting is the "polaroid" setting, but this one is cool too, it's the "toy camera" setting :-)


ps: this is my hanging lamp.... gotta love ikea!

it's always so sad to see a good friend fall to pieces....
i'll stand by you till the very end, my beloved hoodie. and remember that if i wear you down, it's only out of love :)

~2:00pm on April 4, 2010 in Mission Bay, San Diego,CA.

this was the view during part of my bike ride today around the bay. i could not have asked for better weather. it was beautiful outside!




7:00pm on April 3, 2010 in Clairemont Mesa, CA.

yesterday's photo totally slipped my mind... i'm sorry!! so i'm posting two today. above you see photo one. there's a small amusement park set up next to my local walmart, and i loved the empty trains that sat near the fence.


2:00pm on April 3, 2010 in La Jolla, CA.

photo two:
i love walking through the book stacks at the library. library books just rock :-)



~10:00pm on April 1, 2010 at home.

the first picture i took with my new phone :-)
i'm not even going to say what it's of because i liked how abstract it looks!



5:30pm on March 31, 2010 in Encinitas, CA.

i loved that this guy used his Focus' name to reach out and talk to the other drivers....
