Simple Saturday

Saturday consisted of little more than errands and dinner with Papa Monkey, Brother Monkey, and Torry before they left for Costa Rica.

I went to Beverly Hills to pick up my four suits and eight pairs of jeans. Needless to say, my bill was astronomical, but, damn, I sure look good in those suits now. What a difference alterations make

While in BH, I went to Williams-Sonoma to pick up this for my SFAMily Secret Santa giftee, the one and only Wan. (It was on her wish list, so, yes, it was a good gift.)

I encountered some holiday cheer on the sidewalk.

Later, we went to La Bottega Marino for dinner on Larchmont. It's not a fancy place, but the food is palatable, and the service is quick and friendly.

I loved my Atomica Pizza, which featured spicy mozzarella, chili flakes, spicy coppa, and spicy salami. It was...spicy!

Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals.

Torry had the cutest purse. I had to snap a pic!

After dinner, we went to Brother Monkey's and Torry's place (they've moved in together). We hung out a little while before they went to the airport. I found this.

And just what is this? It's a Christmas card from Mark Burnett! Brother Monkey just rolled his eyes when I whipped out my iPhone. What can I say? I am easily impressed.

Papa Monkey also gave me my new camera before they left for Costa Rica. I have yet to review the manual, so you'll have to live with my usual pics for at least another week before I sufficiently figure everything out!

  1. Thought of you last night as I was in your stomping grounds for the Stevie Wonder concert, especially as we drove past Famima. I hadn't been to downtown LA in 9 years!
