The Boyfriend got sick. Poor boy. So off I went to pick up some soup for him. These are some of the better styled soups from Campbell's.
For the Sister in Law's birthday, we went to Disneyland California Adventure. The Boyfriend and I have never been and the SIL hadn't been since Carsland had been put in. We had such a great time. Carsland was so much fun. I so want to go back!
Upon returning to the Burbank area from hanging out with the Sister in Law, the 5 was a mess! Traffic was slowed to an almost stop. This far right lane accident was cause of the traffic mess. I snapped this picture as we were driving by on our way to the next exit.
Hipstamatic released a new lens pack. This is the Madelena lens and Robusta film. This was a test shot of some lovely plants that live on the apartment deck. I'm kind of liking the brown hue to this shot.
While cleaning out some of my mom's stuff, I found this lovely vintage scarf in a drawer. It was packed away in some items I brought to California with me. I had put it away in a bag of thread and only found it again recently.
The step Sister in Law had a flat tire on her way to to work. She called the Boyfriend and I because I have AAA. So this was the building across the street from where her car was sitting. It was some kind of chicken plant because of the large chicken statue on top of the building. It kept me amused while waiting for the tow truck.
There was a large fire down the street from my neighborhood. It was a several alarm fire and was in a building that had lots of carpet. This is the morning after the fire was put out. There were several areas where the police had taped off. Of course, I had to try to get the best shot and had to go past the police line. And I did get yelled at by the police that were standing around.
Bob's Big Boy was having one of their classic car shows. And the Batmobile showed up. How cool is that! More awesome super hero stuff! The picture kind of washes out the bright orange trim. But that's okay because well, Batman!!!
Feeling crappy after having such an amazing weekend is not that unusual for me. I decided that I wanted some pasta but I just didn't want to cook. I have been meaning to try this place out. I got some yummy pasta. Kind over priced. But since I wasn't in the mood to cook, it worked.
It's an all Avengers weekend! I went with family to see Iron Man 3 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. They had some AMAZING props and a display of Stan Lee's personal collection of Marvel toys. It was really awesome to see toys from the 70's and how some of the characters have changed over the years.
A friend was having a Fire Fly themed costumed birthday party. You could go as any Fire Fly character or any character from a Joss Whedon movie or TV show. I had gone to a convention right before Thor came out. And I got a a S.H.I.E.L.D badge. Pretty cool, huh?
George Barris, creator of the Batmobile and other iconic television cars, has a yearly car show in Culver City. The main era of cars are 1950's and 1960's but we saw also many cars from the last 20 years. It was hotter than hell out. And it wasn't as enjoyable because of the heat. Also the cars were lined up funny. They had rows of cars that end to end. You really couldn't enjoy them. I thought this car was really cool. Very California! You can check out the website for the car show here.
The Boyfriend and I went to the West Coast Militaria Collector Show. There was a lot of really cool World War 2 items. Lots of German stuff and lots of Vietnam area items. Pictured is a rack of German World War 2 hats. We didn't buy anything but there was much to look at.
I had to do some errands and ran into the local Target. They started some crazy remodel. All the other aisles were squished together and made shopping difficult. They must have done things really fast because when I came in later in the week (because I totally had forgotten several things on my list) they had moved things back.
Again, I had felt cooped up in the apartment. So off for a drive through the hills of Glendale. There are so many lovely homes and quite a few over-sized, ostentatious homes. This is over looking the whole city. From Downtown Glendale to Downtown Los Angeles. So many pretty lights.
Still sick. But I wanted to get out of the apartment. I was starting to get stir crazy. So the Boyfriend took me out for a drive. We headed by the Bob's Big Boy because there was to be another classic car show. We drive by early and there weren't too many cars out. I really wanted to stop but I just didn't feel up to it.
I went into Hollywood to take pictures today. Wow, it's sad and depressing. Ok, I should say I walked down Hollywood Blvd. The mix of people was strange and sad and odd all at the same time. There were tourists, drug users, homeless kids and shop keeps. It's such a different time from when Ingrid Bergman was popular. Hollywood, the place is nothing like what you imagine. And that is a sad state of affairs.
This the day we went to go actually see the Collings Foundation airplanes. I decided not to get all dressed up in my Rosie's but I did go in one of my Pinup Girl Clothing dresses. This was the last day to see the planes and there weren't as many people out to see them as the Memphis Belle or probably on that Saturday. I didn't stay too long because I had gotten too much sun the day before at the Art Walk. But I did get some nice pictures. And Bonus: Tiki Al and Magic Tiki were there checking out the airplanes as well.
