Bubble Tea, Girlfriends and LA

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

Bubble Tea!

This past weekend, after my whirlwind touring of Alabama, I took on L.A. with a group of my sorority sisters from college. We last met up in July of 2005 for Maggie’s wedding and had vowed a reunion every year since.

Mag's 2005 Wedding

Amazingly, six of us met up in L.A. Deej is the only one living there – the rest of us flew in and spent the first night at Yujin’s parents, in Glendale. The second night we crashed out in Marina del Ray at my friend Tim’s place. The third evening I spent with my extended family, down in Orange. A whirlwind trip for sure! I don’t think I’ll get the chance to write much more about it, but it was an awesome time and I’m so glad we were able to make it happen. Now, everyone just has to come visit me in Portland!

Whee!

Welcome to the South

Monday, May 22nd, 2006
A real quick story - Yesterday, when I flew through Houston, I stopped a Chili's to dish out $8 for a veggie burger. I asked for the burger and, after a few earnest re-iterations of what I wanted, was ... [Continue reading this entry]

White Shoes, Chilled Wines and Frutsticks

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006
Memorial Day is right around the corner, and with it, summer. Memorial Day always meant it was 'ok to wear white' in my family. I usually only possess a pair of white shoes (seeing as how my whites-never-stay-white), but last ... [Continue reading this entry]

Cycling to Multnomah Falls

Monday, May 15th, 2006
For my frantic week, sometimes there is nothing to do but match it with a frantic weekend - or, at least, a frantic Saturday! Saturday ended up being an amazing ride - what began as a proposed ride with Charlie turned ... [Continue reading this entry]

Weekend – Whew!

Friday, May 12th, 2006
This week has been absolutely crazy - lots of writing for work and some decent workouts as well. To reward myself, I'm going out for happy hour. Whoo hoo! However, I can't get too crazy 'cause a ... [Continue reading this entry]

My Favorite Blond Joke

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006
I forgot about this joke until it ended up in my email again recently. Happy Tuesday! A blonde walks into a bank in Chicago and asks for the loan officer. She says she's going to Europe on business for three ... [Continue reading this entry]
