I just posted about our rivalry with CD13 to blogging.la.
It’s like Day of the Longboat! All the friendly rivalry and post-race drinking, only in Los Angeles instead of UBC!
I also saw SUPERMAN RETURNS on Tuesday at an early show, but I’m slammed at work this week, sorely behind in blogging, and haven’t had time to write up how much Kate Bosworth’s very existence is an insult to Margot Kidder and Lois Lane. I’m also dreadfully behind in friends list, so if there’s anything big I missed, tell me about it in the comments.
I have to go back to the coal mines now.
A photo of the Los Angeles sunset, taken from the Gold Line train going from downtown out to Pasadena on Friday night. This is why I like taking the trains: the buses are crowded and stressful, but the Gold Line is beautiful. I took a whole batch of photos that are up on my Flickr page, all in the golden summer sunset light. The scenery of the hills outside of downtown, along the Gold Line and the 110, doesn’t seem like it’s even part of the megalopolis of Los Angeles, and it feels like escaping the city every time.
Incidentally, I posted a LOT of stuff to Flickr tonight. Check out the new sets.
1. Sunshine out my window, and my view of the canals.
2. Knowing my cat is safe & sound in Seattle. In fact, he has already bonded with his human counterpart, and then he went back to napping.
3. Going out to the clubs with my boyfriend, like I’m going to be doing shortly to Malediction Society. Oops, sorry, Shadow Society. They swapped nights.
4. Jumping around my room to Le Tigre, “TKO”
5. This organic minty chocolate bar.
Actually, there’s a lot of things that make me happy, even though I’m pretty tired right now and have way too much work to get through if I want to be out of here at 9:30 to get to the club.
Clonie Gowen is challenging Paris Hilton to a poker game.
Clonie is a former Miss Oklahoma who is appearing in MAXIN this month, and is decreed by some to be the world’s hottest professional poker player. She’s also one of the nine original poker pros who were on Team Full Tilt. And she’s telling Paris to put her skills where her mouth is. Which I’m sure she does on a very, very regular basis, but this time, we’re talking about poker skills. (RIMSHOT!)
Anyways, Full Tilt is putting up $100,000 for the tournament, and it goes to the winner’s choice of charities. So here’s hoping Paris sashays her way up to the table, because that would be a LOT of cash for the needy. Besides, Paris thinks she’s a poker player, even though she’s rumoured to have lost her Bentley in a game. Let’s see her prove it.
And not that I know anything about it, but if you see this particular clip of info on other blogs out there, please tell me so I can track it. Not that I, y’know, seeded the blogosphere with this one, with the help of a wonderful former colleague who runs ToGawp.com.
In other news, this dress looked better in black. And it looked better in black on me.
