Now THIS is my kind of HAPPY HOUR

To kill a little time while waiting for the season premiere of ABDC 5 to start Eddie, Estrella, and I decided to head over to the new Sonic in Monrovia for some yummy beverages! I knew I was going to blog about our little trip so I wanted to take a picture of one of the cute girls they've got cruising around on roller skates! Its too bad I make a dreadful stalker because, for the life of me, I couldn't catch one of them in action! It was like they knew I wanted to snap a pic, they were literally skating everywhere but next to our car! Finally after 30 minutes of making poor Eddie and Estrella watch me act like a creeper I threw in the towel and we headed home!

A Picture

Don't you love how a hardy rain can wash away the blanket of smog that covers the San Gabriel Valley on a daily basis?

As I drove along the good ole' 57 N on my way home from school this afternoon I was completely taken by the lovely site of the snow covered mountains set against the backdrop of a crystal clear blue sky! I wish I had taken a picture of the lovely view, or at least that I had a camera to TRY to take a picture with for that matter!

Unfortunately my camera has recently and mysteriously taken a turn for the worst. The damn thing won’t even turn on! On Monday morning I took my sick little camera to Best Buy to see if the homies over at the geek squad counter could help me out. Much to my surprise, the 2year warranty my mama bought for it expired in December, but out of the kindness of his heart the geek looked at my camera anyway! Thanks dude! Too bad he was just as puzzled as me as to what was wrong. He suggested I try replacing the battery before investing real money to get it fixed or replace it all together!

We headed over to the camera section to get my battery where we were quickly informed that the one I need is no longer sold at Best Buy because it’s outdated! Then, in true sales person fashion, he made sure to show me the latest and greatest model of my camera in the event that I decided to update my dinosaur of a picture taker. Although this was probably the tightest camera I have ever seen in my life, the $400 in my bank account is much tighter. At this time I swiftly decided to get outta there before he swindled me outta my money.

Last night I bought a set of 2 generic batteries for about $16 on eBay! I really hope that’s all my camera needs! Not only do I love my camera and want it back to take pictures of my travels but I REALLY don’t want to buy a new one! So cross your fingers for me and in a short 7-11 business days we will see what’s going to happen next!

Enjoy this sunny southern california day! Here's a picture of the mountain view from my house... No snow but still pretty!(thanks for letting me borrow your camera mom)

In a state of TRANCE

I am happy to report that this afternoon while sifting through my, clutter filled, tokidoki tote I recovered my ipod. The very same ipod that I was beginning to think had grown legs and walked away!

As I drove home from work I shuffled through and listened to songs that one by one were speaking to my soul! I thought to myself with every new track "I love this $hit" and I just can’t seem to get enough! This amazing discovery has left me itching for more! There is nothing in this world that makes me fell the way I do when I am listening to this music, feeling the beats and the base pouring through my being! There is nothing I love more then getting dressed up and hitting the scene with my sastybear! It has been way too long since we have danced together and felt those beats!

EDC 2008 is when and where I was first introduced to, and fell HEAD OVER HEELS in love with, techno/trance/house music! I am forever hooked and I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of June 25th and 26th when EDC 2010 will be back in town! It is going to be an amazingly, beautiful, and sensually intoxicating event.. and I am so excited I could scream!

Lovely Day

Since watching Julie and Julia a few days ago I have been flirting with the idea of starting up my own blog. So... this afternoon, in an effort to prolong doing homework, I DID IT. If you are wondering what this blog is going to be about I will tell you now that I am wondering exactly the same thing! However, I do know that I never run out of things to say and somthing intestesting is always going on somewhere around me! So until next time I hope you are having a LOVELY day :)

Lovely Lesley
