Let's write a lot since as of recent, we've written a little
I went back to one of my alma maters today: Chapman University. I was on assignment from the Jewish Journal to cover a Holocaust conference held at the school. The topic is interesting but the opening speaker was unjustly boring. I slept throughout the lecture I was supposed to be covering, waking up only to write great quotes in my journal that I will use for my article. God has blessed me, indeed. Ate three bagels along the way (have I ever mentioned how delicious they are?!)
Afterwards, I hung out at the school for a while and the old friends started pouring in: CM, GA, MG, PD, AB. It was good to talk to them. Yes, they all receive my infamous e-mails and no, they don't read them. Punks. But they're all good. I spent most of my time talking to MA, a good guy who is too good for his own good. We talked for a bit and promised to get together soon. He is someone I definitely miss.
Afterwards, I picked up ! and we went to Huntington Beach to ride bikes. However, the wind was so powerful that we tried to fly her kite instead. "Tried" is the key word because the wind was so damn powerful it kept making it nose-dive into the sand. At one point, it looked as if we were in a desert and the Ruby's Diner at the end of the pier looked like a minaret in Makaresh.
After getting a bite to eat in Little Saigon (it was Interracial Relationship Day because we saw another couple, although he was white and we were cooler than them), we went to another meeting with friends we hadn't seen in a while: NH, FH, R, VZ, JR, and others. They were cool, although a cute kid wrecked havoc and not much was accomplished.
Going to Easlos proper tomorrow with ! (not Boyle Heights and, yes, there is a major difference). Going to take her to see more murals, maybe even visit my grandmother, and eat at the original King Taco. Thank God for vacations because that has been when we have the most fun.
And as always, never a dull moment.
