With the news that Pau, Dwight, AND Hill were out for a while, along with the skid that the Lakers were on in the past few games, I was ready to scalp these tickets off on the Hub. But the Lakers were riding a 2-game win streak, and Dwight and Pau were gonna be back in the lineup. Despite the loss, it was actually a great game. It's the most pleasing lost I've seen (if that's even possible...). Maybe it's because they played as well as they could. They controlled the tempo for most of the game. They just had a few unlucky breaks.
Dinner at Soleto.
Not sure how they found out it was my birthday... but thanks guys.
We missed the original tipoff again. No worries.
Even Jasmine's spiffy shoes couldn't get us the win.
Visited Chris's.... "office" after we grabbed dinner at Nong La. I've seen friend's offices before (still need to check out the various Google offices), and Chris's takes the cake. I know I work at a great company and have some of the best medical and retirement benefits, but this is f*cking cool.
Hammocks... I'VE WANTED HAMMOCKS IN THE WORKPLACE SINCE FOREVER! (Before Hank Scorpio...)
A week into the new year, and I'm ready to get back into the world. It was definitely a busy week with plenty of things going on. Too bad my camera is still out of commission... iPhone photos prevail...

Tuesday Night: Dinner @ Hart and The Hunter
Thursday Night: DTLA Artwalk capoeira roda
Friday morning/afternoon: rooftop sunrise and patio furniture assembly
Friday night: ramen @ Men Oh w/ Angelface
And some bonus round action: BEER PONG! But with water and wine...
Who throws 2 house parties in 3 nights? This guy. It's the 3rd annual JAO celebration! And I finally have my own place to host it this year. We had our usual midnight champagne toast, but added a little extra surprise for the ball drop. CONFETTI CANONS! It was an excellent turnout and we had an awesome party! Unfortunately, my camera is still out of commission, so we're stuck with a bunch of iPhone pictures. Thanks for coming out!
