my desk doesnt look like this any more after tonights deep cleaning

but Freud is still on my windowsill holding up my succulent.

that was given to me by callie

however, nice people who wanna send me cool stuff in pretty envelopes, we dont have an office on Fig and our zipcode isnt 213 thats our area code. but thank you for the invite and the earrings(!) and european spelling of my name.

major props to the xbi i mean postal employee who figured it all out somehow.

i have been so busy slash so bored

at work im so busy. its nuts.

my favorite thing to do in the world other than slow dance with yr mom is blog. duh. and somehow ive got this scam going where they now actually Want me to blog at work. yet im so busy doing the editor part of the job that i only get to blog once or twice a day instead of five or six zillion.

its still hard for me to believe they let me in the door. but they say hi tony and buzz me right through.

then i get home and the energy isnt the same. libras need balance, true. some yin for the yang. but im a weird one yoda. i want to rock harder when i get home. a) i dont wanna think about japan when i get home. i see it all day at work. unedited. b) we’re gonna die. lets dance. c) the weird side affect of eating right and working out is theres this fire in me now i thought was gone from my old ass forever. and its on fire.

unharnessed, this energy is unstable, and some how we are still in the month of pisces. month of anything goes. its why the church had to tie erryone down with lent to chill them all out.

good thing tomorrows st paddys day.

One of the best kept LA secrets: our tacos

People plan their trips to Los Angeles and they ask me what they should do and see and they see i eat sushi a lot but people can get sushi anywhere.

What they cannot get are tacos like the ones that are so plentiful in this beautiful city.

A while back when I made the move from LAist to the Times i was asked about blogs and blogging. Back then people were buzzing about hyperlocal and this and that and I said that the LA blogosphere is diverse but one thing that stands out are the Taco Blogs.

One of my favorites is is a longrunning blog called LA Taco.

Even now I am sure that people think I’m kidding about the taco culture and the taco blogging and I dont know why they wouldnt trust me. It’s underground, it’s a symbol of the beautiful diversity of this international city, it’s casual, it cuts through every social-economic community, and its a delicious part of our neighborhoods.

LA Taco has created a March Madness style bracket page where people can vote on their favorite tacos. Some of my regular haunts didnt get invited to the big dance, but a few are there.

If you live in LA and want to give a shout out to your favorite establishment, go to LA Taco and vote it up!
