home sweet home.

i don't know why i'm up this early.. i didn't go to bed til 2am. i'm home, our cat woke me up with his weird meow/cry and i'm sipping some tea looking at the rain outside. i came upon this photo of me on our family computer. i think i'm at sea world. notice those (now corrected) gaps in my teeth... ahh the power of braces.

took my chevy to the levy.

i saw a chevy suburban that looked very similar to the one below on the way to work. i was imagining myself behind the wheel driving over sand dunes listening to the beach boys and wished it were true.

homeward bound.

i'll be going home soon.. next friday. home is vancouver, washington which is about 15 minutes north or portland, oregon (for those of you who think there is only vancouver, b.c.). i'm very excited about this because a. i'm homesick b. i need a break from los angeles and c. we're going to the beach. i think we're going to seaside and i'm looking forward to going to the antique stores, eating pizza, hot-tubbing, and watching bad movies on cable (i.e. tremors {which is actually not a bad movie at all but more of a culty flick that's always on at the beach there}). hopefully i come back feeling rejuvenated and supremely loved.. on a side note, on the way to the beach we have to pass astoria which is the home of many movies. i know off hand that kindergarten cop and the goonies were filmed there and that's also where the goonies house is. you can actually go up to the goonies house and all the other memorable locations (museum, county jail, etc). here are some goonie-type images to tickle your fancy:

goonies house!

mikey holds up the coin that will lead them to the treasure. the holes in the coin line up with haystack rock at canon beach.

seaside is really cool though.. i think it's my favorite beach along the washington/oregon coast. i'm bringing my camera so hopefully i get some good photos to post up here. here's an idea of what seaside is like:

tilt a whirl!

and what's a small town without a strip club.. yowza!

what's old is new.

picked these up from goodwill this weekend. some i'm very psyched for and some i'm less psyched over, but all in all i made out like a bandit (in my opinion). i felt bad because j only found one album and i don't even remember what it was.

electric avenue.

this is a photo of my dad circa the 80's that my sister sent me. he worked for montgomery wards at the time in the electronics department, aptly named 'electric avenue'... like the eddy grant song. he even brought home a casette tape of that song so we could rock out to it.. and rock out we did.
