    Happy retirement to your dad, Alayna! My dad retired a few years ago. I felt very stressed in the lead-up to it because I was worried that, in his new boredom, he would drink himself to death. I guess I should have given him way more credit, because instead of reverting to alcoholism (which had been a thing in the past), he took up exercising, reading novels (in Chinese), calligraphy lessons, and now regularly meets up with his friends (a growing number of whom are also retired) for dim sum. He also keeps the family dogs company, which they love. It has seriously been The Best Case Scenario. I have been in Los Angeles this week. Skip is working on a show on the Paramount Pictures lot, so we're staying in a very sparse apartment across the street from it. On Wednesday night we walked past a trailer, and the door was open, and inside was Martin Sheen buttoning up a Hawaiian shirt. His name escaped me in the moment, so I mouthed to Skip, "It's the President from the West Wing!" A few minutes later I thought, "Oh his name is Michael Douglas!" Yeah, it was not Michael Douglas. It was Martin Sheen! I sure am glad it is Friday! I sure don't want to work any more!

    It's friday. I have about a million projects to finish before NEXT friday but in the meantime I'm just happy that it's a cold spring in Oakland. Tomorrow is my dad's 71st birthday and his first year as a retired human. We weren't close when I was growing up, but now he is my good friend.Happy almost birthday to him.

    i've actually seen these, or at least a version of these, under more illicit circumstances (lol) wherein certain psychedelic or other synthetic drugs (in liquid capacity!) are in these little guys. . . yeah

    hi fridayers i went to a free informational session on Transcendental Meditation this week. the organization sounds like a moneygrubbing cult, the benefits all sound infinitely too good to be true, but david lynch swears by it soooooooo i'm feeling like i might give it a try anyway. happy weekend

    mugs

    i'm work as an English teacher. i told a friend about how many plastic cups i wasted at work. she gave me this as a present with the condition that i took it to work and sent her visual proof of the fact. it's boobies. it's boobies on a mug. i have continued to use it. it's a good size! it's too subtle for people to mention it and not subtle enough that they don't notice. i like it!

    hey, sorry for not responding, i was respecting The Rules Of The Thread (TROTT). i'm, uh, just doing whatever. tourist visa down there only lasts a month. you dont have to give much info but there is designated zones where tourists can go and places they cant. walk around and see what happens is definitely my approach in any trip. i guess i'll head to Thailand when my Visa runs out. maybe i can get a job around there (I am, ostensibly, an Englsih teacher). if i don't find anything or I feel like going back to Europe I will do so in September, but I'll probably relocate to a new city, probably Prague. It all depends on a lot of stuff but that is basically the plan.

    yeah, i was thinking about that. i don't care about *people* but it does seem like it will be more and more annoying to organise and add stuff with the system chrrently in place, whereas with tags i wouldnt have to think about it nearly as much. its also kind of weird that you have to check what exact type of thing has been updated instead of just having the newest thing at the top i guess. so yeah i might do that

    Today is one of the best Fridays because tomorrow I am going to LA for a week to see Skip. He will be living there for the next three or four months because he has a job that requires him to sit in a room with a bunch of writers as they some up with the scripts for a TV show. It sounds really tedious! I am hoping he will find some joy in it (the bureaucracy of it gets him down in a really bad way). We have made plans to do things like hike Runyon Canyon, visit Griffith Park and get Salt & Straw ice-cream (I will bring my Lact-Aid). Ryan, Laura and I will probably make curry tonight. And when you're here @soaplitz we'll probably make curry again, because it's all we know how to make.

    tombo! it looks good dude. let me know if you ever need help with anything. also, a suggestion: i understand the impulse to want to separate things into categories like that. but i would whittle them down, or maybe create a single CONTENT STREAM and just use tags to organize. in my experience the less clicking around people have to do the better. people don't wanna click around. but also: fuck em, dude. if you like the little pools of images and text, then keep it that way. that's just me two cents!!!

    hey li’l dudes. well it’s may 18th. i’ve been back home in NYC for nearly a week. i’ve been pretty absent for a few big and small reasons. i had to pack up my life in atlanta and come home, and the day after i got home my dad passed away, on may 14th. i like to keep it light and happy here in our house, but my dad’s death has derailed my life for a bit and i’m just taking some time to be at home with my family. i’ve been donating old clothes/throwing out junk/things i don’t need to prepare for my five-month (or so) move to los angeles. it’s friday, and i haven’t left the house (except to walk my sweet Mr. Spock) since monday. i’m doing some banking and going to doctors appointments and buying a new pair of sneakers today. well, i’ll be in oakland from june 9th-14th. come say hey to this towhead 5’4” rascal if you’re feeling like you’ve got nothing else to do. love y’all ~ happy friday.

    i wasn't gonna share this until i had a bit more stuff on there but ah, whatever. definitely inspired by starsailor.co, i've made myself a lil website. i'm lazy so i used squarespace :P it still took a long time to make something relatively simple! anyway here it is: tomdv.net

    the entertainment will be televised

    I like to watch The Great British Baking Show when I really need to chill. It is meant to be a cooking competition but everyone is full of self-doubt and whenever their cakes collapse they're like "Oh well, better luck next time, I suppose!" It's also somewhat education because you learn about all these weird European baked goods that have these long histories and are impossible to make. And everyone is really nice!
