From my Android…no, not my robot, just my phone and a little collage app called Collage Maker Pro, which I would enjoy more if they didn’t have so many popups repeatedly nagging me to…I don’t know what, buy it again? Buy their other apps which will also keep bugging me with pop-up adds about “Getting an awesome new career at X collage…” instead of letting me enjoy their product. Hey, I would pay a lot more for a great app that didn’t annoy me and was managed well, but I’ve got two degrees and a great career. I suppose I’m not their intended target market, but that’s their mistake. Focusing on a great product instead of fidgeting a so-so one then trying to pad their pockets with ad pennies is selling oneself short instead of being the best they can be. It’s coming from a place of lacking, of fearing one won’t get enough of the rising dough. It will always leave them hungry for more because they will never get enough satisfaction with that mentality. I’m just saying…
Seal Beach, CA is one of those quaint little beach towns that you just can’t get enough of. Though it’s small, the variety of restaurants range from diner, burrito/margarito, Italian, wait for an hour brunch to Thai and they’re all great! They even have a very naughty dessert shop that you can smell before you even see it. Me and my boogie boarding buddy ALWAYS go in and NEVER buy anything. The sweet decedent scents are so overwhelming, that we feel completely satisfied to just inhale deeply and boldly walk away…well nearly. I’m not saying that it doesn’t take every ounce of our willpower combined, it does, but that makes it all the sweeter to know we are powerful against the peanut-butter chocolate caramel ewwyy gooy Ohh Ohhh bars.
Above are pics of eye candy goo-ga from a couple of the beachy touristy shops. Pretty unique stuff really, but living on the beach is a big blessing that infuses one with the Small – Minimalist – Intense – Living – Entertainment… the SMILE is worth every penny we pay for our 1 bd apts and rooftop shacks! Like all of Manhattan is every Manhattanite’s living room: Every beach, ocean, desert trail, poppy field and beach town are our playgrounds.
This one’s for you N!
Sunset Beach, CA is lovely any time of day, month or year. It doesn’t matter whether I’m using my DSLR or my Android phone, there is always a shot I love…
