Alvinisms 1272

"What a child doesn't receive he can seldom later give."

-P. D. James

Did you know: After my Portland posts Im gonna stop the "did you knows" unless there is one I really really like and have to share.

Thought of the day: I'm back in LA! But this time I'm with Jenny and Ellen and hopefully after a day of free food at picnics and fob parties we'll be able to hit up Art in the Streets. Fingers crossed!

Food for thought:

Honey walnut shrimp. Should be easy right? I'm gonna try to make it this week. Hopefully it turns out as good as this picture does.

Cool thing about Portland Fireworks is that they are everywhere. And everyone shoots em from rooftops so it goes on all night.

My niece's gift from Canada fits me! Model time!


Can you spy a gray Willys Workshop sticker?

No those are fireworks in the back and yes we're on the roof.

SD's finest.

You had to crawl through a window in this building/home to get to the top.

And up a ladder.

Eddie still had work but said we could visit. BTW, there's free beer so we were in.

His spot is huuuuuge! Yes, that is a totem pole and yes that is Ellen.

The kitchen.

The meeting auditorium. They even have band play here like Foster the People.

View from the top.

WK 12.


Can't show pictures of future projects but this is the workspace of EdwinHimself.

This is like the 3.5 floor and those rafters up top aren't just for looks.

Free kegs on rollers!


What's so special?


Remember those beams? Welcome to the high life.

And a tree room thingie for more meetings of creative minds.

If it wasn't so windy/cold we could've stayed up on the rooftop/balcony and drank (with the keg next to us the whole time). What a great idea.

But we went to play basketball in their gym that was loaded w/ goodies!

Ellen taught me how to hoola hoop again.

And yes she killed me in HORSE.

What a fun workplace!

Beaver faces.

Goodbye Wieden Kennedy. You are awesome.

Back to late night pizza.
