I played hooky today and went to Palm Springs to see my former co-worker/BFF and his husband, who are there on vacation. We first went to Robolights, an insane installation-thing by Kenny Irwin Jr., whom I’d seen previously at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, although we went there having no idea what it was and I only realized this part-way through. It was crazy and beautiful and super-weird. Then we had lunch at the Ace Hotel (kale salad and fish tacos, all my favorite things), and spent the afternoon at thrift stores before I had to drive back to LA. It was a lovely day. I still really can’t believe he doesn’t live here anymore.
