My Entourage

Today they accompanied me to Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur.

AKA the "purple sand" beach
That sand Owen's stomping is purple I swear.

And so is that hill coming out of the right of his head.

I had imagined that purple sand would be everywhere.

But that wasn't the case.

It was scattered randomly.
See, here's more.

Foreground: purple sand.

Background: not purple sand.

And then there's Drew and his rocks.

This was on a little path just off the beach:

And we'll end with a few more on the beach.


Purple sandy feet.

When again in his life will he walk from school to this aquarium?

Maybe next year.

But still, it's pretty cool.

Not Too Original

Heart Pancakes.

Big Kisses.

A new book (Olivia, which is such a cute one).


And sidewalk chalk.
(from a birthday party)

Ya, not a very original V-day but they were happy.

And I got a hot date so I was happy, too.

My Past Valentines

First, there was Donny.

I thought we were a cute couple
but I just wasn't down with his puppy love.


Then there was George.

Didn't work with him, either.

I was like, "George, just because you're a z-list celebrity doesn't mean you can make fun of my puffy pregnant self, my face as white as my shirt, too-bright lipstick, and nasty highlights."

You are the weakest link. Good-bye.

I'll stick with Justin.


PS Obviously I didn't date these has-been game show hosts (for Pyramid and the daytime spin-off of Weakest Link). I met them when they were doing promo for their shows while I was working at good ol LJW Advertising.

10 Honest Things

Honestly, I...

like Brad Pitt. I know, not an original celebrity crush. But we broke up when he left Jen. Got back together when he made Benjamin Button. I'll sit through ugly baby Brad and old man Brad anytime if it means I get to see good looking Brad in the middle.

like the name Drew because of Drew on Big Brother...not anything to do with an old boyfriend. But I guess naming Drew after a character on a reality show isn't any better than naming him after an old boyfriend. I just like the name Drew okay!

liked the name Sally before I met my friend Sally in NC. When I met her I knew we'd be friends and I thought, "crap! I'm gonna have a girl and her name will be Sally and everyone will think I named her after her." And sure enough :) Justin doesn't even believe me. Not sure why I feel the need to have everyone believe me on this because naming Sally after Sally isn't a bad thing.

am cooler on paper than in person. If you don't think I'm cool on paper than you really won't like me in person. In person I'm a bad conversationalist. Writing lets me think things out better.

still sleep in an old t-shirt from high school that says Army on it. And Justin's in the Marines.

would like to live in Monterey longer than a year and a half.

want one more girl...Hazel. Hazel Hollobaugh. Now there's a mouthful. But Hazel, please don't come for a few years. And please don't come in the form of twin boys. And Justin please learn to like that name :)

have at least 20 people on my Google Reader that have no idea I read their blog.

don't know how to play football. Am I the only one not watching the Super Bowl?

am really good at gaining weight. Not to brag or anything.
