Mmm...Mmm...Mmm !!!

Oh Trader Joe's, how I love Thee.



Last night, I was trying to snag a free dinner, by filling up on the food samples at my local TJ's. Kidding...sort of. I was actually picking up some roast beef and cheeses, when I discovered the exotic delicacy known as Turkey Jerky.

Stop rolling your eyes, this jerky isn't like the uber dried out, tasteless beef jerky everyone's familiar with. This jerky is super moist & flavorful....like me!

Get you some today!

Party at Jim's House!


This past Saturday, I attended the event of the summer...

Jim, of Jim's Notes fame, hosted a Bastille Day party and was gracious enough to have invited my ass. I gotta tell you, the man knows how to throw a party. There was a bartender serving up my new summer cocktail, the French 75, a crepe station (where you could choose between sweet or savory crepes), showgirls that put on a cute dance routine, and some of the nicest (and attractive) L.A. folk....all of that and he wasn't even charging a cover!

Seriously, Jim & Lyle have a lot of (nice) friends...one of those friends was David, from the Dit21 blog, who was there with his hubby, Brad. What a nice couple of guys David & Brad are. Paul & I spent the night laughing and drinking champagne & French beer with those two.

Jim & Lyle have a gorgeous house, (now I really want a red crystal chandelier!), and I regret not snapping more pics of the party. I love how the yard was decorated (check out the pic below of the entrance with the Eiffel Tower....so damn creative!)

Many thanks to Jim & Lyle for such a fun night....Paul & I had blast !

Obama is So Busted!

It looks like Obama is enjoying the Italian sights while attending the G8 Summit in Italy.

Please and Thank You.

Love, love, love the dreamy surrealism. Genius!

For My BFF

On Sunday night, I got my drink on at Ripples, at their weekly Beer Bust. I scoffed at the $6 cover charge, but when I was told that they were serving booze on the cheap (well vodka for $3) , I quieted down.

The place was packed. Who knew that people actually went out on a school night? It was Latino night, which made my BFF very happy. What made him even happier, and a little lighter in the wallet, was the Go-Go-Papi-Chulo below.



This not-so-tiny dancer knew just how to work the crowd and was making his money fast. At one point during the ogle fest, this sweaty, crazy-looking drunk stood in front of the dancer and started to do some weird interpretative dance/body spasm/yoga moves, which blocked our view of the dancer (who, at this point, was lying on his back, thrusting his hips into the air like he was humping a ghost).

This cock blocker made my BFF very angry. I believe that he shouted something along the lines of: "Get Gollum off the floor!!"

I knew that I had seen this dancer before, but couldn't remember where until this morning. I just forwarded the above pic to my friend. Something tells me that my BFF will be asking me to go with him to Club Cobra very soon.

Ed Asner Made Me Cry

......

Over the weekend, I finally saw the latest Pixar movie, Up. I had heard nothing but good things about the movie, yet I was still a little skeptical. Well, hush my mouth...Pixar has, yet again, blown me away...and they even made me tear up a couple of times, but don't tell anyone that this grown man lost his cool in a movie theater...over a cartoon character.

I'm terrible at reviewing movies, without giving away the entire story. So, I'll say this: go see this movie. You won't be disappointed.

June in July?

I live in an old house. An old house with no insulation. During the summer, it retains heat ....and during winter months, it retains the cold air. During the day, I like to keep the front & back doors open to cross ventilate the place.

I'm still waiting on my landlord to repair/reinstall my screen door since it was removed a few months back, when the exterior of the house was painted. Having no screen door in place invites outside creatures to come inside. Creatures like the much hated June Bug.



For the past few nights, I've been taunted & teased by the little bastards while I try to sleep. They fly all around my bedroom, slamming into walls & windows, making a low thumping sound before they drop to the floor.

They really are stupid creatures. They'll fly right at you while you're holding a rolled up magazine in your hands...and they practically aim for the magazine, as your swinging it in their direction. Yesterday, I sent one flying back out the open front door just so. Oh, how I laughed and laughed....ahhh, good times.

I don't hate all June Bugs. There is one type that I actually like. It's not so much an insect...no, it's actually more like a cocktail. Here's the recipe:

Ultimate June Bug Recipe:
1 oz Midori
1 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
1 oz Banana Liqueur
1 oz Sweet & Sour mix
1 oz Pineapple Juice
Blend all items together, serve over ice in Collins glass, and slurp it down!

Happy 4th of July !

Fireworks

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. My weekend is turning into a major suckfest (and not in the good way), so let's talk about last weekend instead.

Roy, author of the blog Rusty's Balcony, was in town and invited me to come hang out with 2 of his friends in WeHo. We met up at Abbey (I love the Abbey). It was great to meet Roy...it was funny how comfortable I felt to be around him (and his friends). It was as if we were old buddies, meeting up after seeing each other not too long ago. After our first drink(s?), we headed over to Micky's. I was a little disappointed in the remodel. I was expecting the place to look totally different from the way it did pre-fire. It just looked a little too familiar for me. We did get to ogle a go-go dancer (who I think is a porn star), sporting what had to be a banana in his chonies.

I had such a good time Roy...thanks for the invite!

...Mmmm....my neighbors are grilling ribs...I better go make friends!

Happy 223rd Independence Day America!
