I spent the weekend in Los Angeles, prior to my Caltech tech talk.
Chateau Marmont, the bar that Elaine chose for Saturday night.
Token LA celebrity encounter! In the parking lot, we ran into Nicole, lead singer from the Pussycat Dolls.
Lovely LA morning with my friend's baby. My friend is half-Filipino half-Caucasian, and her husband is half-Japanese half-Caucasian, but for some reason, their baby looks completely white.
I know I'm inviting trouble (in the form of snarky comments) just by saying the word "Caucasian", but damned if I'm going to self-censor. Bring it!
My friend's backyard. This is the best house I've ever seen.
The rotunda in her house.
She excitedly showed me an interior design magazine with photos of a "dream house", which confused me because her own house looked just as impressive to me.
I like how the brunch restaurant thwarted my attempt at healthy eating, by topping the salad with a stack of onion rings.
I prefer the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to the Getty Museum. The Getty is high-maintaineance, with laborious parking and a 20-minute shuttle just to enter.
LACMA architecture is all high ceilings and glass. I approve!
Some of my actual friends don't look this alive.
I want to sit in this chair every day at work.
