Wow, I almost never post! Today was a big day. Cris is going back to Chile on Thursday, and Oscar returns to Colombia on Sunday. And you're asking, who are these people? I joined a Latin gang. Juancho already returned to Mexico. And there's Bita--she's Persian. So today I took Cris and Oscar to the Getty Center--my second time there. Here I am with Cris by this big piece of "art" at the Getty:
I like the train ride up. And I gave the boys a tour of UCLA. Here's Oscar looking like he belongs there, and Cris who was a great sport about sticking his head in the bear's mouth:
Later we met Bita for dinner and we were going to go to this rock outcrop called Stoney Point, but they had red cones up so you couldn't park. Somehow I got forced onto the 118 freeway, and when I got off at Rocky Peak to turn back, I discovered you could park THERE and hike. Despite my paranoia about mountain lions and my lack of suitable shoes, we walked up a long steep trail and watched the sunset. Pretty cool. Bita was very concerned we got pix of the shoes she had on. She is very photogenic. Here she is showing off the shoes way up on top of a rock. You can't really appreciate how high up we were, but she looks great as always:
I was simply orange. Tomorrow I interview new students, and the next session begins next week. Always time to work. My roommate is in Korea for the next month. Danny graduated! He is so sweet. He returns home at the end of the summer to go in the army. I'll miss him so! I fully believe he'll be back. Tomorrow night Lopex and I go see MONGOL on the big screen, yeah! Asano Tadanobu as the young Genghis Khan. Hot or what! Our roadrunner Curio returned after an absence of a few months, but he's very busy hunting. Got a new roof on my house. It's very white and supposed to lower the temperature a bit even. My other neighbor Johnny saw that we were trying to take down that big old shed and he volunteered to do it if he could take the metal parts. Do all the labor AND haul it away? You rock! Be my guest! The price of gas is INSANE and now it costs a small fortune to go home. Even though the desert is just full of sharp pointy things that want to scratch and prick you (and embed their sharp selves deep in your skin), I love it so much.... Alas, I have to return to the Big City for work. I have really neglected my friends and I feel bad about that. I MUST catch up with people. I miss people! Sharon is off to the UK for the Ropes first overseas dates! Mega cool. She rocks.
Lopex is now in her new office location, out of Santa Monica and now in Sherman Oaks. The Valley in summer....
I tried to use Facebook cos young 'uns I know keep telling me to go there, but you have to be under 21 or something to use it.... I hate it. I don't have the patience for that or myspace. My Facebook name is Picosita if you're so inclined. Check out my flickr account, HollywoodLegend. That's where most of my photos go. Wait, I can make a link....Click HERE.
