My phone number no longer starts with 303!

I am currently in Malibu. Yes, that's right, the place where all the rich and famous people live and surf. It is gorgeous, not that I'm surprised.

Here's a sample of the view.


It’s okay I guess.

(When I was wandering around and saw this out the window, I thought it was fog. Because I'm stupid, first of all, but mainly because I'm not used to the ocean.)

Other California observations... well, there's a lot more air here. Also, apparently there's a thing here called the "June Gloom" that the ENTIRE WORLD failed to mention to me, and I have been dressing for much warmer weather day after day and subsequently turning into a popsicle as soon as I go outside. I like cold weather, but I like being informed that it is happening.

When I’m home next perhaps I will write a post about the AMAZING and totally not disgusting or requiring-of-flip-flops-at-all-times-especially-in-the-bathroom apartment that I’m living in right now. (No, seriously, wait until you see my medieval microwave. You will all be so jealous.) (It’s only for two months, it’s only for two months, it’s only for two months…)

In the meantime… here’s a good song.


  1. Yowza, that's quite the view. Should just about make up for the "character building" qualities of the apartment.

  2. Unfortunately for me, that is not the view from my apartment. It's the view from the retreat place in Malibu I'm staying at for the week. My apartment is far more ghetto than this and far more inland. I DO have a view of several different alleys, though.

  3. Oooh, alleys? How very noir. You're right though, that is a very good song.

  4. That is a gorgeous view! What is your room like?

  5. first I missed the sarahcasm and I was like, "oh, that's cool, at least her bathroom is really nice!" and then I realized the truth. I miss you like a crazy person misses their shoelaces.
