We go hard. Err’ DAY.
Haha. I haven’t seen this in hella days. Sean, I miss hangin out with you, dude. Those were some fun times.
Oh shit. I forgot about this comic, haha. I miss hanging out with you too, man. Just a few days ago, I was reminiscing about our random hang-outs in your old room in Dixon. I hate that I’m so broke all the time. Otherwise, I’d totally head your way and visit.
St. Paddy’s Quake
In case you hadn’t heard, most of LA was rudely awoken yesterday by a 4.4 magnitude earthquake in the Sepulveda Pass, near Encino. I live in Sherman Oaks, just on the east side of the 405 of Encino, and my place is about 4-5 miles from the epicenter.
That shit was terrifying. I was dead asleep when suddenly I was jarred awake by our bed shaking violently and the roar of the walls and windows shaking. I yelled and grabbed Daniela out of fright and concern, and she yelled that we needed to get out of the apartment. We rushed out of bed, threw on some shoes, grabbed sweaters and keys, and burst out the front door. Outside, the pool was sloshing water out of it, and most of our neighbors were outside, struck with panic and fear. After several minutes of standing and listening, we didn’t feel anything else and headed back inside.
We were both really shaken up, and just sat in the living room hugging each other for a few moments. We flipped on the news and started looking around the apartment for damage. At first, we only saw a few jostled and knocked over decorations and pictures. There were a couple small aftershocks within the hour. Upon further inspection, we found a few cracks in the walls of the dining room and bathroom. Hopefully, they’re only surface cracks. The manager asked us to check for them yesterday, so we’re going to let her know today.
Sleeping last night was kinda rough. Both of us were nervous and had trouble falling asleep. Every little noise woke me up. Daniela almost came to work with me because she didn’t want to be alone, but she eventually decided to stay. Let’s hope we don’t have anything like that again any time soon…
P.S. I resent the jokes and humor people who weren’t as affected by it are aiming at it. Yes, no one died and no buildings came down, but it still sucked for the people it scared the hell out of.
I was going to start eating healthy today…
… But then my coworker shows up, wakes me from a nap, and hands me a fatass chicken burrito from Del Taco. And who am I to turn down free food, especially when it’s a burrito? I’ll eat well for the rest of the day, though. And do some exercise when I get home.
Miniature Carnival // North Hollywood Park, North Hollywood, CA - 10 May 2013
Daniela and I recently discovered that there is a farmers market in our new neighborhood every Tuesday night, at the corner of Woodman and Riverside. This afternoon, we decided to wander down there and check it out. It was a small setup in a parking lot behind Sports Authority. The selection was pretty good, though. We got a good selection of fruits and veggies to restock our fridge with. Everything we bought was decently priced, and organic. In addition to the produce, there were a number of vendors selling items including fresh butchered meat, fish, fresh bread, cookies, and a number of food vendors selling various cultural cuisines. We both enjoyed the experience, and will more than likely be back to buy more stuff and try different foods.
Daniela’s grandpa passed away this evening. She’s really upset, obviously. I feel really lost on what to say or do to make it better. I’ve always been one to just deal with tragedy on my own and push people away. She’s a much more emotional person than I am, though. I’m doing my best to just offer her comfort and love, and hoping that helps.
RIP Abuelito Tafolla.

Look at this fucking adorable kid. I like taking his picture, because he always stops and poses when he sees the camera.
"seandelosmuertos" is a personal blog with random stuff.
I need your opinions, followers!
On Friday, I plan on getting my my hair cut. It’s been about 2 months since the last time I was in the barbershop. In the upper left corner is a photo of me a few months back, fresh from the barbershop. I typically have it cut short on the sides and left long on top, with it combed to the side and back a little. It’s kinda similar to the guy’s hair on the upper right. However, I’ve been thinking of changing it up a bit. Mostly, I’ve been contemplating doing the “whole high shaved sides and long combed back top” thing. I don’t know what the hell it’s called, but I like the way it looks. But, I don’t know if it’s a good idea for me. What do you think?
The person I was gonna hang out with called me at the last minute and came over, so I didn’t get all the way through it. But, what I did hear was pretty good. It’s a mix of progressive metal with elements of the band’s black/viking metal past mixed in. If you’ve heard any of their last two albums, it’s got a similar vibe.
Daniela is heading to Mexico tomorrow at 3am…
… And I’m really nervous for her. All these news reports of civilian militias clashing in the streets with a drug cartel and the Mexican military stepping in to stop them is happening about 45 minutes from her grandparents house.
