A weird little storm came though last night... just a quick thunderstorm in Torrance but some heavy snow right down to the valleys in some areas east of LA. It cleaned out the air good... this is Castro Crest (near the middle, i live below that) and Saddle Peak (to the right) from quite far away. Posted by Hello

Well, after a whole year..... after all of the late nights, last hopes and lost time....... well, the emo saga is over. Anyone reading this will probably laugh at my melodrama and say i am full of it but... i'm glad i haven't lost my friend. Posted by Hello

I seem to have a rather mild cold. However, when mixed with alcohol and exhaustion, it became rather unpleasant last night. So, i decided today to just rest and play World of Warcraft. That's what i did. I got me a big gun, and a warthog to follow me around and gore stuff. Posted by Hello

In reality, i probably won't get to play until Thursday. But i am still way excited...

The acorns are falling...

Some valley oaks in Cheseboro canyon are producing an extrordinary number of acorns. I found one i swear was nearly 3 inches long. In just a few hours of collecting, me and a co-worker gathered over 2000 acorns! In the next few weeks, we will plant them in degraded ecosystems, and monitor their success rate. If early rains continue, it should be a good year for seedling oaks. In any rate, it's a good year to be a squirrel.

Yep, when it rains, it pours. I remember last month i was complaining that Los Angeles was boring and i couldn't find enough fun stuff to do. Now, i barely have enough time to catch my breath. Last weekend, i went country western dancing with friends (which mostly consisted of drinking MGD), visited my parents, helped my other friends move into their new fancy place,
and went to a huge indie rock fest (feast) . At the latter, we stood around in the rain and watched people's badly dyed black hair get soggy and messenger bags get saturated. We also witnessed the odd spectacle of two people 'dry humping' right in the middle of the crowd in the rain. Apparently they were too drunk to realize they weren't in a secluded lucation. Nevertheless, the Shins were amazing and the Flaming Lips were a ton of fun.

Good stuff.

One out of three?

a while ago i was talking to Julie. I was thinking of unlikely occurences, and we were trying to figure out which was more likely: kerry winning the election, things working out with the girl i had a crush on at the time, or this fall getting a freakishly abnormal amount of rain.


Rainfall in october was around 800% of normal. The hills are green. It will give Halle-Burton's bulldozers something to run over.

Incidentally, things didn't work out with that girl either. But then again, girls, like pacific storms, have a tendency to leave just when you think things are going to get good.

As for Kerry, i never had much hope in that.
