Red Sky Morning and Alternate Driver

This morning, to my delight, I was witnessed to a beautiful red sky morning (working song title and idea, been working on it for a while, don't steal!). I wished at the time I had a better camera to take the photo, but there's something cool about using a grainy phone camera to capture these moments.

Today, work was actually interesting as I went to the LAX terminal and climbed up to the rafters in the terminals above all the people. Let me tell you, it is one scary area. I thought I was either going to fall, or I was gonna get eaten by zombies! FREAKY! * shudder*

Also, you believe they actually trust me driving this thing?! *double shudder*

Holiday Lunch

Today, the boss took the group out for a holiday dinner. Armed with a $20 off coupon, she took us to Salt Creek Grill in El Segundo (or is it Manhattan Beach?). The place looked nice somewhat like a Lazy Dog Cafe. Their menu was quite small but they did have a full bar (we weren't allowed to order from there :[ )
She even took us out for dessert. It seems as if the Gelato place we went to took a 'lil phrase I like to say. :)

PS. I had the French Dip Sandwich with the garlic parmesean fries which I fully shared with my coworkers.

Make Up Your Own Story

A Poem

My Silvertone

I already do miss you

athough our time was short

we made some great sounds

hammers, slides, even distort.

So why did I let you go?

How come I set you free?

Since you needed to be loved,

It's the only way it could be.

"Scrobble" vs "Words With Friends"

Completely confident in my Scrabble Skills. J and R are going down!
*Looks at board* *Looks at tiles* WTF AM I GONNA DO WITH 7 "i's"! (Yes, I had 7 "i's" in this game, 3 at one time. I had 3 "i's", 2 "v's", and 2 "r's" all at once. WTF!)
BTW, I wish I had Words With Friends on my Windows Mobile Phone. :(

Five Guys

Today, mom and I ate at one of President Obama's favorite burger joints, Five Guys. It was pretty good, I don't know if I'd eat it over In-N-Out but I'd recommend it. But FYI, I didn't know the regular burger was a double stack. I'm a wimp so I like the single patty. (I'm trying to cutback!)

PS. I had the Cheeseburger and Cajun Fries. (Gotta love the free peanuts too!)

Drawing and The Grinch!

Today, I woke up in Lakewood where I slept over at M and J's new house. M made breakfast for everyone and I drew a drawing of a Black Scoter. What is that you ask?

Why this. He/She appears to have no bottom because in the picture I was looking at he was flying out of the water, which is what I tried to depict but failed. I'm particularly proud of this drawing as it actually resembles what I was drawing, also because I didn't have an eraser so any mistakes I made are left on that page. :D

Later that day, J, J, M, T, mom, and I all went down to Hollywood and watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas featuring the lawyer from Night Court (JL)who played Old Max. The show was actually pretty entertaining albiet short. It reminded me alot of Aladdin from Disney's California's Adventure. The Grinch was fantastic and the crowd interaction was fun.

Being the hungry bunch that we were, we all headed back out to Eagle Rock where I finished my day at Oinksters.

PS. I had a cheeseburger and belgium fries. YUM.

The Grove

Today we went to the Grove. In what now appears to be a yearly tradition (this is year 2), we shopped, ate and took pictures in front of the tree. I don't really have any pictures to post, but M and C do. I'll put up a link if they can post it.

PS. I had brazilian. :D

Frag Out!

Let me be honest here for a bit, today I feared for my life. You see here at work, a huge bulk storage chemical tank nearly exploded. And in my area! OH NOES! So I was called onto the front line where I was ready, in full on chemical suit, gloves, and protective face shield. Armed with only a sample bottle, I winced and prayed that upon opening this valve that I wouldn't be hit with highly pressurized, burning hot caustic.

Long story short, I lived to write this thrilling write up, and the above picture was the look on my face after returning back knowing that the tank would not erupt. :o.

As a reward, I was summoned downtown to go to archives and pull some paperwork. :I However, don't fret, I was joined for lunch at T.O.T. with J to celebrate her birthday a few days early. Happy birthday J!

PS. I had the Spicy Tuna Bowl with Side Salad and Miso Soup
