read a newspaper over a huge pancake breakfast and snort at the French
One should snort at the french at every available opportunity
Particularly when they, the champions of European unity, vote against a European constitution drafted by one of their own ex-presidents. The irony, it slays me.
That is such a beautiful photo :)
Thank you. I wanted to get a good shot of the jacarandas that completely line Del Mar from Lake to Fair Oaks. When I saw the limo, I decided it was a sign. ;-)
Thanks. It's cool to see a photo of good ol' Pasadena sometimes. I can even place where that is.
I do miss it sometimes (and others not).
Del Mar, just a little east of Los Robles.
I know what you mean. Most of the time I remember Los Angeles without much fondness, but when I'm back in Pasadena, I love it. It's beautiful here.
I've added you as well.
I love San Fran. Marco (my boyfriend) and I used to go there once a year when we were in California, just to spend a week eating, clubbing and used-book shopping.
Those are pretty flowers.
They don't really have any scent, which is too bad, but there's one street here that has magnolias interspersed with the jacarandas, and it's heavenly.
Oh to be able to drive on a wide street! (that isn't a motorway).
Where the streets are laid out in a grid pattern, too.
Jacarandas...so pretty, so deadly to the paint job of your car. I disagree about the smell, for some reason, they always smelled like flea powder to me, and made me a little allergic.
I miss Pasadena too...especially the food!
The flowers do tend to glue themselves permanently to anything they touch. I never thought they smelled like anything. You must have a preternaturally sensitive nose.
We went to a new Himalayan place on Union for group lunch today. Good buffet, outstanding rice pudding, $7. Woo!
You could always wrap the trunk in heating tape and set up a thermocouple controller and a webcam, so you could monitor it from inside the house.
Eh, you're only frightened for 2d4 rounds. You should be fine in a minute.
