two things i learned this weekend: tairyn and i are expert drinkers, and ryan and paul are expert bowlers.
yet another adventure shoot, featuring the incomparable mr. lee!
this time our journey took us to the depths of cardiff-by-the-sea in an oft-forgotten area of land by the ocean, where a quick hike from a conservation center brought us to a narrow walkway overgrown with plants and trees. skating was most likely not allowed, but what can i say? we’re the baddest of asses.
tairyn’s mom often scores complimentary tickets (otherwise worth $63 each!) to padres games that she just so happens to pass along to tairyn. the seats? located in the toyota terrace infield. the ballpark cuisine? brought to us at our seats by food runners. the doucher in front of us wearing a christian audigier tee and jeans covered in leather/satin crosses? amazing.
i had the pleasure of having a nice grill and poolside session with tairyn and her boyfriend ryan this weekend! we packed our bellies full and laid out to our hearts’ content. operation: tan like a boss was a complete success.
had a quick adventure with a young stallion the other night!
there are three things in this world that will always tickle my fancy. one—sweet confections of the breakfast variety. two—the creamy goodness of a delightful hershey’s drink. three—ji-san lee, who coincidentally brought me numbers one and two yesterday morning. a stud by definition.
i unfortunately had only a limited amount of time to hang out with him, so we made the most of it by doing things like front rocking and climbing into quarter pipes shaped like planters. below are the fruits of our labor.
aaron, andrew, chris, and i took a little day trip up to newport yesterday!
our gameplan was simple: shop at jack’s (why isn’t there one in san diego?), eat at mama d’s italian kitchen (chicken parmigiana with pink sauce get in my mouth), and visit jesse at his new beach house (shoes). however, the weather was so gorgeous that once we hit san clemente we decided to take a detour up the coast highway to make pit stops at dana point and laguna beach. a few death-defying planks, some *nsync, and a lot of bird poop later, we finally reached our wonderful beachtown destination.
more fair fun! have i gone every day since it opened? probably. except this time i traded in my champagne + sippy cup for sake + a doubleshot glass. it’s a tiny bit messier, but seems to pack a mightier punch.
we headed to the beer garden to enjoy some sweet tunes courtesy of a live performance by the 80s band, a flock of seagulls. winning. afterwards we
trespassed engaged in some covert ops around the fairgrounds and found some great locations which allowed us to engage in even more covert ops.
once the fair closed, we drove back to torrey pines high school to pick up chris’s car aka the green lantern…only to discover that the groundskeeper had locked the gate of the parking lot, rendering the green lantern completely trapped. at that point we did what any other competent group of people would do: went on a mcdonald’s run to purchase a 50-piece mcnugget meal. and don’t worry, this was right after we had already collectively eaten two-foot corndogs, chili cheese fries made with four potatoes, a bloomin’ onion, australian battered potatoes, pizza on a stick, and beer. we’re all apparently morbidly obese. so with fresh minds and our bellies filled to maximum mcnugget capacity, we went back to the school and decided that the only way to free the green lantern was to drive him onto the campus and across the lawn. which is exactly what we did. mischief managed.
i have never laughed so hard.
let my inadvertent eighty-pound-gain from the fair’s fare (see what i did there?) begin!
it’s 10:32pm. i’ve been in the library for twelve hours. pictured above are three reasons why i failed to exhibit a stellar amount of productivity during that time, followed by a little bit of
death metabolic biochemistry (for good measure).
