Catching up

About a year ago, I was waxing rhapsodic about living in Los Feliz.  Well, that's all over and I have a new love.  Silverlake is the most awesome neighborhood yet!! I love being able to mosey down the street to work, from there I'll wander up the block to get some coffee and a dress, then amble slowly throught the neighborhood till I'm back at my adorable apartment.  Then I stuff my lastest acquisition into a closet that's already overflowing, wonder where all my hard-earned wages are going, and head back out to any number of great restaurants for dinner.  I hadn't intended on moving into this neighborhood - I was dead-set on getting a place in Chinatown - but now I'm so glad I'm here.  And, just to make things that much better, my neighbors are great and we've formed a small, but very awesome,  gang.  When we're not watching movies or solving the world's problems,  we walk around and sneer at other people for not being part of our awesome gang.   

I was recently given a mini camcorder and if I can get the thing figured out, I will be flooding the interwebs with completely useless and random video goodness.  I am so excited.  The Explosive Neil is as big a ham as me so I won't be the only idiot on this video-venture.  All of this is dependant, of course, on whether or not I'll be able to get the camera to work for me.  I've got my fingers crossed.

I'll be heading out tomorrow to spend a couple of days with my parents.  Both my uncle and my cousin are having some health issues and because this is a very public forum, I'm not going to go into any details but it will be nice to spend some time with my family.  Things are getting kind of scary, between the health problems in my family and watching The Artist deal with the death of his father.  It'll be comforting to have my family around me for a bit.
