A Date in Highland Park

Severo and I both had Saturday off so we went on a trek to Eagle Rock and Highland Park. A photography show (not that great, so no documentation) in Eagle Rock got us out of the house. Afterwards, Good Girl Dinette in Highland Park was our destination for late lunch and it was fantastic!

Severo ordered:
charred pork rice noodle salad with spring greens,
pickled daikon & carrots,
bean sprouts, basil, and toasted peanuts & shallots
 I ordered:
vegetarian porridge:
brown rice, minced mushroom, napa cabbage, and shallots
roasted oyster mushroom banh mi
served with pickled daikon & carrots, cilantro-maggi mayo,
and spicy fries,
seasoned with chilies, garlic, and cilantro
For dessert:
gateau basque with raspberry jam filling and whipped cream
 When we were done, there was a rainbow to the east.
An omen for a happy 2013? Let's hope so!

A Dash of Brights

I wore this last week on a rainy day.
My dress looks like one of those holiday air-filled illuminated lawn ornaments!

Lurex Lights Me Up

Severo and I made a quick overnight trip up to San Francisco so he could retain his Platinum status on American.
This is what I wore:
I wear this skirt often, it's very comfortable.
I had no idea that the sparkly lurex in some of the stripes would become an issue at airport security!
Did you know that lurex is metallic? I didn't even consider it.

This is what my screening looked like:
I modified this image by Joe Raedle, Getty Images.
The yellow boxes indicate metal objects.
I was all lit up like a Christmas tree!
That's the last time I'll wear THAT skirt flying!
