As the quintessential procrastinator, I thought I would update my blog rather than get some studying done for my mid-term on Monday. Cramming really works better for me anyhow.
I finally spent some time today reading and responding to my favorite blogs. I'm not sure if you find this true, but if I don't check daily, I feel guilty. After an entire week I actually felt overwhelmed! If I had access to blogging at school, my entire lunch break would be spent staying on top of all ya'll's lives and I wouldn't feel so overwhelmed. OCD? Maybe, but I'm completely addicted!
Thursday evening we were invited by our friends Greg and Sheila to see Blonde Redhead at The Wiltern. Beforehand, Rob and I grabbed dinner at the new Whole Foods in El Segundo. Wow, that's a serious Whole Foods! The ready-to-eat food options were incredible, the chocolate bar was mouthwatering, and the floral department was vast. If I lived in the area, I'd be there everyday searching for an excuse to buy something. Once we arrived to the Wiltern, we enjoyed a couple cocktails before Blonde Redhead played. Greg and Sheila are from New York, so it's always great talking with them about NYC. Sheila and I discussed fashion trends, celebrities, and she filled me in on some shops to hit up next weekend when we're in NYC. I really enjoyed Blonde Redhead, they have some really incredible sounds for only being a 3-person band. While I was extremely thankful to be there, I felt guilty because I'm sure my brother, who is a fan, would have appreciated it more. Rob recorded many of the songs, so we made him a DVD...hopefully that will suffice.
The highlight of my day today was getting my first facial. What a treat! My skin is so soft and supple right now. Gabe and Mimi are throwing a Halloween dinner party this evening that will be fun and festive. I'm sure the decor and food will be superb.
Hope everyone is having a happy and safe Saturday evening!
