Funny Faces

October 3, 2014

The perfect Friday night. Warm (what is it, August 20th? No? October 3rd?! Whoa.. thermometer at 10pm still reads 72 degrees); the students are back, which means it’s nutty downtown, but full of youthful energy–clusters of manic kids roaming the streets, music everywhere, strings of lights wrapped around trees that give everything a festive glow, enhanced by a couple of glasses of smooth as silk wine, which all happen to complement perfectly the warm October night; a FANTASTIC dinner at Our House (god, I love their food**) with two friends we’ve not seen in awhile; a little wine overload, and a lot of dessert overload…. and now I gotta blog.

Luckily for me, I have two pictures from today (more or less) that I can curate for today’s blog that fall under a common theme. ¬†Under the circumstances, that is a minor miracle.

As the title suggests, the theme shall be funny faces. 

Funny face #1, taken by Wes Young at last night’s varsity baseball game in Yuba City, Peter on the bump… I NEVER get tired of these:


And funny face #2, a selfie taken this afternoon at Carrie my 30-year+ stylist’s place:


She seems to be on the phone, maybe calling for reinforcements?

** mountains of sour dough french roll and sweet butter; Sonoma-Cutrer chardonnay; sausage-stuffed mushrooms with mustard; goat cheese-stuffed dates wrapped in bacon; Alaskan halibut in a coconut sauce over fried rice; banana cream pie; chocolate decadence cake; coffee w/ cream. Each and every bite and sip insanely satisfying.
