Another One

Thanks again, roomie. I felt compelled to post it not only because it’s fun, but also because I failed to mention in yesterday’s post that this week marks the opening of my second half-decade in Los Angeles.

In other words: I’ve been here five years already! Though I guess the way I phrased it the first time would seem to imply that I’ll be spending at least another five years here. Can’t rule anything out at this point.

Cat video with alternate Russian title. (Hat tip to the new roomie for finding this one.) The only type of video that with a stronger guarantee that I’ll watch than this is a cat video with an alternate Japanese title. (I’m looking at you, Maru-chan.)

I’m getting settled in at my new place pretty well; having a roommate can be a little helpful for dissuading me from bringing home a large pizza to eat on my own for dinner and quashing the late-night impulse decisions to go get a pint of Ben and Jerry’s before bed. It’s like having a live-in accountabilibuddy.

Last night a friend had some comp tickets to the Hollywood Bowl, so I went there for my first time ever (nice venue!) and saw the LA Philharmonic. Great times.
