So many great friends!

a bit about this a few weeks ago, but thanks to Erik, Robyn, Milan, Dori, and Jodi for stopping by for a super fun Food Night!

It was like 2005 all over again,


So many awesome people in one room!

…who came in from South Carolina to visit us a few weeks ago!

That weekend also featured appearances from a bunch of out-of-town friends and family, including my sister Beth who was in from Hawaii, Erik and Robyn who were in from L.A., and Milan, Dori, and Jodi who came down from Milwaukee.

We grilled out some meat, watched some wrestling, and got really drunk. Or at least I did. In a really bad way.

Anyway, thanks to everyone for making it a great weekend!

The Youngs draw a crowd,


Are you ready to Royal Rumble?!?

Jodi went home $30 richer,


So many visitors!

…for visiting this past weekend!

Also, thanks to Emily for hanging out with us at the DJ Shadow show!

We went through a lot of beer,


…no, seriously.

One of the things I miss most about Milwaukee (other than the obvious ones, like friends, family and Friday night fish fries) is Alterra coffee.

After a few months of drinking cheap sludge out here (that’s the price you pay when your one-bedroom apartment costs, well… a lot) I found myself craving Alterra more than ever.

Sure, L.A. has its share of okay coffee spots, like Peet’s and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, but nothing out here compares to the caffeinated goodness of a hot pot from Alterra.

Thankfully, a few people back in Milwaukee love us, and bought me and Kathy an annual coffee subscription to Alterra! Each month we’ll get a pound of delicious coffee delivered right to our front door.

This month: Ethiopia Harar.

Alterra Coffee

Mmmm… beans.

Alterra Coffee

My Lord… I had forgotten what great coffee tasted like.

Thanks to Dwellephant, Dori Zori, Marla and Jodi for sending a little bit of home all the way to California!

I’m usually not big on being a commercial, but if you love coffee and are looking to try something new, check out Alterra here.

Home in a cup,


Old Poop!
