antelope short stories



[chinese laundry sandals]


it's been a pretty awesome/crazy month.  I moved down to l.a. at the end of september, and I had just enough money to pay rent and buy pasta and be super broke, so I've been spending $5 a day and being antisocial. but I'm super happy! and I just started work at olive garden.

sometimes I feel like I'm living a double life. on one hand, I'm meeting all these elegant, lovely people who fill their lives with jazz and motorcycles and expensive trips.  I wear these thrift store dresses and the chanel my dad gave me and remember what it was like to not be broke.  and I still don't have furniture. 

anyway, I have this gorgeous friend who just so happens to be a soccer scout from brazil, and he invited me to the playboy mansion last night for a party celebrating excellence in sports.  you know, tons of athletic men in tuxedos, strolling around the playboy mansion, drinking expensive champagne.
and I had to work at olive garden.
serving breadsticks.

  7. I'm in love with the middle photo! Is that your journal? Two worlds will lead you to create one great world for yourself. It sounds pretty exciting to me!

  17. In fairness, a party at the Playboy mansion offers a 78% calculated risk of giving you hepatitis. So it all evens out.

  21. hmmm, possibly a fair assessment, that elegance and sophistication, coupled with bottomless champagne, are mutually exclusive of endless breadsticks. oh life's little ironies.

    fret not, you are happy, and money and decadent parties can be poor substitutes for happiness.

  22. Great blog! I do love some Olive Garden breadsticks..but maybe not as much as athletic men in tuxedos...

    ReplyDelete
  23. you are absolutely hilarious, and even tho it might have been nice to stare at those athletes, i bet your breadsticks and customers have smarter "noodles" than anyone you would have struck conversation up with at the mansion;-)
