my house

My apartment in Chicago. My windows were the back 2. My door was the side one in the alley - across from where the garage burned down one time and melted my A/C and my neighbors pounded on the back door to wake us up.

The front of the house

The mark I left on Chicago in from of my old apartment "J 10-97"

Tim Burton

This is the entry way to the exhibit. Yes you walk through the mouth of the monster. However you could not take photos in there and I also got kicked out for talking on my cell phone.

too funny

This is to funny and had to share - I know some of you will laugh at this.


When I was in LA the last time I went to the LACMA. I went to see the Tim Burton showing - basically lots of his private drawings and models. It was great to see it and I was a little sad that it didn't start till after I was there in the end of may. Who knew I would have to go back.

I have always wanted to see the lamp poles outside of it. They are all light up at night but I didn't want to stick around by myself to see that. If you ever saw the move no strings attached there is a scene where the actors are here at night.

So I started the ball rolling on my resume - I contacted on person to help me with it. I casually mentioned this job I had my eye on Sony Studios and he knows people there in the area...no press to get it done now and follow through :)

no sleep

Last night Foxy was up every hour either wanting to go out and pee or throwing up...it last till 8 am then she wanted to go to sleep. The bad part is she gets needy when she is sick and wanted to sleep on my chest for an hour then my shoulder then my head. She just can't get close enough when she is no feeling good.

new start

I decided that today was going to be the first day of my new life...So far the girls let me sleep till 5:30 and go back till 8:00!!!!

I also went to my acupuncture session - little did I know she was treating me for deep sorrow and sadness - she said that I am so good right now that she change the focus of my points today - she did frustration points :)

Sound like a good start to a new life to me!
