things i love thursday (two days late)

(photos by me)
  • escaping - things at my home weren't going so well this week (translation: i got kicked out) so my friend (who also needed to get out of town) & i put $15 of gas in her little grey/gray truck & went to our friends house (mikki) in the middle of nowhere (also known as antelope valley, near palmdale & lancaster, & for those not familar at all with california geography this is where i was. the photo above was actually taken in the hills behind her house. it was really wonderful to have no responsibility, no phone service, no plans & no pressure from other people. it was a much needed break from modern civilization.
  • having a job - i hate working but a job equals money & i really need money so i really needed a job. i went back to the only really job i've ever held which is a receptionist at a hair salon. i worked there on (when i'm at home) & off (when i'm at college) from october 2005. even though i hate it sometimes, i love my co-workers & they love me so it's nice to be back.
  • seemingly random interactions - i've had at least four very odd meetings with people; some nostalgic, some ironic, some fated, some just really, really weird. one meeting was realizing that a long time customer from my work is actually gary bryan from krth (an oldies radio station that i was weaned on).
  • goat cheese - i've been addicted since my friend introduced me to it a few months ago. can anyone suggest some good brands/good types to try?

Goat Cheeses: yes!

One brand commonly associated with 'the best' would have to be 'Humboldt Fog' by cypress grove... All of the cypress grove cheeses though are immaculate.
