Glad to find a safer stop away from all-night convenience stores and late stations.

Fight for Air

At the Fight For Air Climb at Aon Downtown LA with American Lung Association. Smoggy today. Wish my air was cleaner...

At wizard world anaheim comic con, laughing about the ridiculousness of turnstile attendee counts. Unique attendee counts are the only way to go.

LA Asian Pacific Film Festival

Meeting Julian Ayrs from the tattler...

Followed by a custom burger from the Counter...

On my bike today I could have sworn I ran over a seemingly huge lizard right through the belly. I stopped and went back to see what happened to it, but it disappeared

Artisanal LA - Eat Local, Eat Well

I made the registration table look pretty. That was my contribution for the weekend.

Like Farmer's Market for Specialty Desserts...

OMG, I've never had so many generous samples in my entire festival-going career. These amazing vendors are so passionate for food - their products, their methods, and their source ingredients - that any individual who dares to be called a 'foodie' will find themselves in good company.

Try the caramels from Pasadena-based Le Bon Garcon - they're stirred and worked to within an inch of their smooth, creamy lives. (I hear he's got buff arms.)

Chat with the gentleman from the goat farm in Mojave. He loves his goats and the products made from them. (I told him I wanted to come back as one of his goats in my next life... He's such a sweet man.) I spied some herbed goat cheese preserved in oil at his booth that I'm going to hit up again tomorrow.

It really is the best 10 bucks admission you'll spend all weekend. Forget Coachella - Sugarbird's Sweets & Teas gave me a box of scones at the end of the day - for free. You'll regret not going.

The Artist Formerly Known as Swork

Reading an LA Weekly is my monthly indulgence.

The scent of toasted coconut granola at swork is like a siren, beconing me to crash against an iced vanilla latte shore.

Can't bottle this stuff...

From a crafting blog I follow:
Also, because I like free and I'm sure you do too, a giveaway! One lucky person could win this small handbag upcycled from a t-shirt. All you have to do is leave a comment. I would love for you to follow the blog and tell all your friends as well, but it isn't a requirement. I feel like you should follow the blog just because you love it.

And here's the awesome bag:

I'm really excited! 7 must be my lucky integer.
