It's like they're "real" people.

It turns out that "internet people" are, like, "real" people... in real life... and not two dimensional flat objects just floating around the interwebs.


And I have proof.

That's Jaya of Heebie Jeebie Jaya! That's Sakari of The Female Trouble! And that's me (who desperately tried to do the "not-smile" look, but failed at the last minute)!

And that's Gabby of Corazones Rojos!

While we walked around Melrose and ate on Sunset, we talked and gabbed about L.A., the Minneapolis scene, how we found each others' blogs, etc. and whatevs. Woooow, my shorts look a littttle short there..., oh, and YES, Sakari and Gabby are toooo coool for skool.

Ohhh, and to end the most perfect week, our aunt treated Jaya and I to a birthday brunch at Bottega Louie in Downtown L.A.! This is the first time I've realllly tried any of the fancy restaurants in downtown and it was SUPER DELISH. Jaya and I are gonna try and make it a point to eat more in the DTLA (if anything, just to see hipster white people, the ethnics, and the homeless co-mingling in the same space).

The fooood. I got the Smoked Salmon Benedict; Jaya, the Steak and Eggs (medium rare & sunnyside up); and our aunt, the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes; also a side of the mooost awesome Portbello Mushroom fries with a Cilantro Aioli sauce.

We also got some gooodies from the bakery. I don't know what they are or what they're called, but allll of it was great, if not interesting.

A Jaya-approved picture of herself and MEEEE! Thanks for capturing the good lighting, Jaya.
