Happy Halloween !



Hope you all had a safe/somewhat sane Halloween. This year, I skipped the parties. I had 3 invites, but I just wanted to stay home. So I did.

I carved out my pumpkin, made chicken enchiladas for dinner/lunch tomorrow, watched a couple scary movies, and passed out candy. This year's turn out sucked. Where were all the kids at this year? I live in a pretty decent area and I bought quality candy (as a kid, I would get so disappointed whenever some cheap-asss would drop a cheap-asss lollipop or a cheap-asss Smartees into my bag).

I gave up around 9:30, and I now have about 2 lbs of chocolates sitting on my kitchen counter top... calling me... calling me!

Anyhoo, all of that candy laying around the house got me craving something sweet to eat, so I made a frozen yogurt run with my buddy, Eljon. [Word: Blood Orange yogurt, with fresh mango slices = Da Bomb!]

When I got home from the yogurt shop, I had something hot & tasty waiting for me, as well as some champagne...

Happy Halloween, indeed!

Slickness

If anyone is feeling particularly generous today, I'd like to request the following rain boots from Gucci. You can pick me up at a pair at Saks for a mere $295.00...


Come on, do it, you know you want to.... and besides what's a few hundred dollars (for a pair of boots that I'll probably only ever wear 3 times in sunny L.A.) amongst friends?

Oh, in case you're wondering I measure in at 9 inches a size 9.

Get Me to the Pumpkin Patch

Halloween is just around the corner and I have yet to buy my pumpkins. I am such a slacker, and I probably won't even get around to the patch, until Saturday morning.


I've been invited to 3 parties, Saturday night, so this upcoming weekend is going to be crazy busy, with pumpkin guts flying, candy bags being purchased, candy bags being sampled (for freshness), and last minute costume purchases.


I just hope the damn neighborhood kids show up Sunday night. Year-to-year, it's hit or miss... last year's turn out was pathetic, and I was forced to eat all the leftover candy. It's true, kids ruin everything.... even my waistline.

Shut Yo Mouth !

Sitting in my cubicle at work (overworked & underpaid, but damn grateful to have a J-O-B, just the same), I think about finally posting something to this here blog....and I have nothing to write about. Absolutely nothing.

"Hmmm, what about....nope".

Just when I think I have absolutely nothing to blog about, I get distracted by the sounds of my 2 coworkers eating lunch at their desks. The sounds of those 2 slurping and suckling their food is enough to make me lose my appetite. I don't mind the sound of Doritos (mmmmm!) being crunched and munched loudly (I'm guessing with mouth open), but it's the nasty sound of one of 'em making love to a peach that is really turning my stomach.

Someone near me is also having soup for lunch. Sounds like he's trying to suck up chicken noodle soup through a straw....and then gags on the noodles every few slurps. Nasty.




A few months back, I went on a date with someone that had no idea how to chew his food with his mouth closed. He was a mouth breather, so maybe that explains the need to chew open mouthed. He was a nice enough guy; still, I couldn't get past the random food bits popping out of his mouth as he ate dinner. Surprisingly, there wasn't a second date.

Time for me to get my lunch on.... let me show these fools how it's done.
