Joe and I just got back from California, where we spent a couple of days in L.A. and then the rest of the time at the Coachella music festival. Wow. What a fun vacation. Seriously. Almost too fun, because now that I'm back I have a cold. Blah. We accompanied Joe's brother Kris and his wife Julie, and since they are in the music industry we got free VIP tickets and lodging and everything. I asked Joe, "What qualifies us to be VIP's?" And he said, "Because although we ourselves are not cool, we know people who know cool people." Haha, so true. We got to see one of my favorite bands, Fleet Foxes (and we noticed Jake Gyllenhaal, Reese Witherspoon, and Busy Phillips at that concert). I also saw Morrissey play for the first time, although he freaked out halfway through because he smelled "animal flesh burning". Besides watching music, we spent our days goofing off by the pool, drinking cocktails, and reading. It was very restorative. Just what I needed to gear myself up for apartment hunting in NYC next week.
