Anyway, without further ado, here's what's been up in the land of Krispy.
1. Calligraphy: To pick-up from Alz's post last Friday on calligraphy, I thought I'd show you some of mine. Sort of. I did indeed borrow the calligraphy book from Alz, but I haven't been learning the formal forms. I'm addressing Save the Date envelopes for my BFF, and she likes my handwriting enough that she told me to just write them. No calligraphy needed!
HOWEVER, since I love doing this stuff, I had to make it at least KIND OF pretty. So I've been doing a little freehand calligraphy with the addresses, and the calligraphy book is helping me incorporate some of the prettier aspects of the different fonts that I like. Here's a sample of what my handwriting looks like.
2. Loki, the Cute Overlord: The puppy is still taking up most of my free time and some of my not-free-time (like my sleep time). I was looking at pics I took of him when we first got him, and he is SO BIG NOW in comparison! They grow so fast, and he's such a little tricksy scamp now! I say this, of course, with the utmost affection.
3. Graduation: Last weekend, the Sister graduated from UCLA. It was a big deal, partly because it was local so more of our family could go. My little Baby Bear Bruin sister is all grown up now, *sniff sniff.* Traditions were upheld, many pictures were taken, fountains were danced in.

Like how I went to a cupcake ATM after the sister's graduation. Yes, the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM is real and it works.
On the celebrity sighting side of this, only in LA would I get a text from the Sister at 9:38pm Wednesday night while she was working a show that said...
LOL RPATTZ IS HERE.
5. It's June: I'm freaking out that June is more than halfway over. My brain still thinks it's the end of May. How is the year going by so fast? Movies I've been wanting to see are out (BRAVE this weekend!), follow-up books I've been wanting to read (Insurgent! Bitterblue!), Sister graduated, I'm actually starting to do work related to my BFF's wedding (bridesmaid dress bought!), etc. etc. It's all moving too fast for me!
Also, why the heck has this summer been so mild weather-wise? I mean, I like the sunny but not sweltering, but I seriously need some consistent heat so I can go swimming. Summer is the only time I'm like consistently exercising! C'mon California!
Q4U: Apparently, it's the ALA Conference this weekend in Anaheim. I, unfortunately, will not be attending, but will any of you be there? OR What's something about your locale that you take for granted?
