Summer Break Highlights





1. Going to Japan, again. Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Kamakura, Kawaguchi-ko. See above pics.
2. Getting published (an email I wrote) in Hillary's mom's amazing food publication, Knife and Fork.
3. Checking the internet about halfway through my trip and learning the Mets had made up 5 or 6 games in the standings. Checking the internet when I get home and seeing them in 1st place.
4. Encounters at the End of the World-I think Herzog is actually starting to play along a bit with those that think his narration is hysterical. Or maybe he's just really funny.
5. Eating sausage sticking out of a beer stein full of soup at the Red Lion with Kenny Bloggins and Chris Rogers.
6. Playing whiffle with Deuce Deuce after visiting his brother's Boogie Nightsesque mountaintop villa.
7. Getting CC Sabathia off the waiver wire in my fantasy league.
8. Buying tickets to see Polvo, Silver Jews and Radiohead (at the Hollywood Bowl). Not all in the same show.
9. Seeing Grizzly at the New Beverly Cinema. Inglorious Bastards next Wednesday.
10. Taco trucks in LA.
11. Getting a new job.
