Big On Bishop
After the 2 sweet weeks in Lancaster last week, work trucked us on up to luscious Bishop. Bishop is situated in Owens Valley – a 5 hour drive from smoggy ol’ Los Angeles.
Bishop is directly east of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, so it is surrounded in natural resplendence!!!! At night, when I arrived at the hotel with my work pals, Jeff had already set up camp in the hotel room.
This is what awaited me when I stepped into the door. This is Jeff’s “Gentleman’s Pose”.
Hotel glass mug full of wine, y’all. Passing a fine evening on the veranda. It’s been so amazing having him on location with me!!!!!
Dinner was mucho mas shocking mounds + heaps of Mexican food.
The next day work was not unbearable, because I was devouring the outdoors + the stupendous vistas!!!!
We were working at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory where HUGE satellite dishes study star formations + cosmic microwave background – whatever that means. I didn’t have enough time to stalk the manager of the observatory (who had a decent moustache) to squeeze some technical information out of him.
Halt! Apparently, tours can be arranged – hello, I’m SO coming back!!!!!! Nerd alert!
We were all feeling super psyched that day to say the least. We were jumping up + down like a bunch of crazed fools!
To life, to life, l’chaim!!!!!! Floating aliens.
Who’s the Asian alien in a babushka??? Now that’s just weird.
After work, the boys wanted to burn a hole in their wallets. Yes, everyone male + female alike love to shop, except Shelli who is now speaking in the third person. Here they are, losing their minds over deadstock western wear. I am not disclosing locations due to the territorialist nature of hoarders.
That night, we all celebrated our last day of shooting at the Bishop bowling alley!!!! Expect no less! Big hair + trucker caps only need apply!!!!! OHHH YEEEEAH!!!! Bring it!!! I felt like I was in an episode of “King of the Hill”.
Except, the live human version. It was awesome.
The next day Jeff + I moved about as slow as a couple of garden snails ifyouknowwhatimtalkingabout. Stay tuned for more on our sobering drive home to Los Angeles.
Those 4 persons pictures are so funny. You guys were excellent jumpers; ha ha ha ha huh !!!!
I am tired of laughing.
omg i would totally go on the observatory tour with you!
…if i were still in LA 😦
and unlike most people, i’d actually understand star formations, microwaves, event horizons, 5th dimensions, theory of relativity, string theory, the force, and the schwartz!
i miss my festival buddy!!!
Man! What am I going to do?! No one is going to want to go to the Bishop Mule Festival with me this spring!!!! 😦
why explore space for aliens when you can observe all walks of life-forms at different festival?!?!
hoarders hoarders,…U gotta slow down ur S.O., Nanook, hehehe…LOL, luv, papi
