i've had a rather amusing day. and it has left me exhausted.
let me start with last night. i was up and about messing on the computer. ended up chatting till about two a.m. while contemplating on whether i should go to bed or not, it hit me.. like the worse addiction. a craving itching in my skin and rattling my brain. i became one track minded, and as much as i tried to fight it off, i couldn't..
i need to draw, to create, to make "art". so i ran up into my room. searching for my sketchbook, the one sketch book i had seen floating in my room previously. of course its no where to be found. not even with my other sketchbooks,or underneath fashion mountain. (four feet high pile of clothing covering my entire bed) i became really frustrated, pulled all of the clothes off my bed. and it wasn't there. i rumaged through ever pile i had created while cleaning previously that day. and the thing was nowhere. so i grabbed another sketchbook, doodled for a few minutes and just couldn't get it out. i needed "THEE" sketchbook.
so after being frustrated i decided to go to bed. it was now roughly 3:30 a.m.
i woke up at ten a.m. and wanted to just roll back over, pull the blankets over my head, and create a beautiful warm carbon dioxide cocoon for myself. i thrusted myself out of the warm comfort and instantly ran to the cold sanatized environment of what is my bathroom. i figure if i get in the shower, there is no turning back. after shower of doom, i proceeded to get dressed. then i attacked the kitchen for some breakfast.
i've been reallly addicted to instant oatmeal the past few weeks, mostly because we seem to have an endless supply of it. although i did break that yesturday, i made pancakes.
i could probably write forever about oatmeal. so i'll just cut to the chase.
nicole, inthia, and i infiltrated the los angeles zoo. i brought my camera, and a zoom lense. nothing like getting pictures of animals up close and personal. going to the zoo only feeds my odd obsession of owning a large farm with lots of animals. i really want a goat. (more on this later) we managed to see all the really gret animals. the la zoo will soon be a pretty decent zoo. i vote they get a bat hut though. cause the bronx zoo had a bat hut and it was just the coolest thing ever. might i add that i want a bat.
while moosing around the reptile hut, i mysteriously lost my two companions. so i continued on looking at the snakes. then i noticed this odd snake with a foot. i soon realized that this type of snake does not have feet, and it was infact the foot to a small animal. so i high tailed it out of there and found nicole and inthia on a bench.
after the zoo, we went to alcapuco (i think that's how you spell it.) nicole's been rather obsessed with going there lately. i haven't eaten there in about three to four years. suprisingly enough they had a nice selection of veggie friendly foods. they have embraced the portabello mushroom. i got tasty mushroom enchiladas. the next time i go there though i will be getting desert.
