Manic Monday

It’s Monday again and after a busy day I’m starting to plan out my blogging for the week and it’s going to be gooood. Thank you to Golden Road Brewery for posting about my blog on Saturday and for my new readers, welcome to Life Absorbed. Get ready for a post about Saturday night in Hollywood and my Sunday Tibetan meal followed by Chinese New Year celebrations.

So did you go to any of the events listed in my weekend guide? No? Fear not, many of the coolest events are happening all week (aka Pacific Standard Time exhibit and Chinese New Year celebrations).

Since today was a “Manic Monday” (titular moment), I’ll have to leave you with this until tomorrow. After a few showers on Saturday morning the sky cleared and it ended up being beautiful. I bought a 6lb medicine ball at Big 5, and took a walk while carrying/tossing the medicine ball. I highly recommend it and it gave my arms a great workout.

I walked a few times this weekend and as you can tell from the pictures the sky was so pretty. On one of my walks I even bumped into Andy Garcia, who was very nice and polite. You never know what could happen on a walk.
