I mean Linsey. She got home from Florida a few weeks ago and came to visit me last weekend. A whole three days of zero loneliness. It was awesome.
Day one, we did a little shopping (I got this sweater at Second Chance -- a sort of permanent sample sale store),
then out to sushi, and topped it off with some dancing at the Standard (a club on the roof of a skyscraper downtown). Lots of crazy pictures, but they're all on Linsey's camera.
Next day we hit up Ikea and I got some bookshelves (still working on filling them up.)
Then we had the BEST pasta (actually, Linsey's friend who met us for lunch ordered the best pasta, but Linsey and I eyed it like little puppies until we were finally allowed to finish it off). We were at Michel Richard's.
Anyway, it was basically a carbonara, but instead of having little chunks of onion, the onions had been strained out of the sauce. I tried it at home. HUGE improvement over my usual carbonara.
On our last day we went with my friend Sarit and her baby and her cousin to the Noah's Ark Exibit at the Skirball. It was AMAZING and I wanted so so so badly to have my nephews Nels and Willem there to enjoy it.
The ark and animals were all made out of "repurposed objects" and could be manipulated and climbed on. Here is linsey
moving this giant giraffe:
They truly thought of every detail kids love. Net walkways all around the ark that kids could climb up, ropes and pulleys for sending up food, a mini table, and fake poop for them to clean up.
