What a great night!

First, it started with Peter and I catching a UFC match on Showtime.  Yes.  A gay man and his hag watching Ultimate Fighting Championship.  We just randomly stumbled across it, and got immediately hooked when we realized how homo-erotic it was.  We probably weren't watching the match like we were supposed to (i.e. pointing out how ugly the fighters were, how gay their fighting positions were, and also squealing each time someone got kneed in the face) but towards the end, the fighting got really intense and we were totally caught up in it, until we both realized that we had other commitments.

Then, I went off to go watch a movie, and literally walked into a live Beach Boys concert.  Beach Boys!  In my neighborhood!  And even better, JOHN STAMOS!!!  Two nice people gave my friend and me entrance wristbands to the podiums, and we got to catch the last leg of the concert.  Kokomo!  Watching baby boomers jive to the Beach Boys (and John Stamos) was the cutest thing ever.

Finally, (nicely structured, don't you think?) we made it to the movie theater and watched the new Batman movie.  It was pretty good.  As a testament to its quality, it is close to 2AM and I am still awake, after just getting out the theaters.  And I did not fall asleep once!  

And now I sit here, munching on a delicious slice of whole wheat toast with apricot jam, letting you guys know how much I enjoyed tonight. 

Life is good.  Good night!

FOOD o' Summa!

Food that I've been eating constantly this summer.  I'm obsessed!

Cold brewed iced tea.  I just throw in a tea bag in a jar with some cold water, keep in in the fridge for an hour, and voila!  Iced tea for one. 

Chopped up spinach salad with chopped up fresh herbs thrown in.  This is a spinach + basil + mint mixture.  My obsession is to eat this with a balsamic vinegar, yogurt, and some fruit-type vinaigrette with some nuts. 

My ultimate obsession this summer:  Roasted Kabocha.  Roasted for 25 minutes in 375 degrees oven.  Marinated with balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce if I'm feeling sauce-y.  Try it.  I don't think it's actually in season, but I live in California.  We don't have seasons.  Plus, this is probably from some where in South America, anyway.  


Adora Calcium supplement.  Calcium supplement in the form of dark chocolate.  Let me tell ya, I'm SEVERELY picky about my dark chocolates, and this one is decent.  (Could use a little bit more of a punch, though.)  Added 500 mg of calcium plus Vitamin D + K?  YEsssss....

Yum yum.

I thought it was a Cinderella moment..

I am just about 5 feet.  I'm normally short.  Just like everyone else in America, short, tall, thin, fat, finding perfect pants was something I thought only happened in Far Far Away Land.  I thought that it was a myth, like the unicorn, or the G spot. 

But 2 weeks ago, I found the perfect pair of jeans.  The waist was just wide enough, it wasn't too low rise, and not too high up, and most of all, most IMPORTANT of all, I DIDN'T HAVE TO HEM THE PANTS.  You don't understand.  This has literally never happened to me before in my entire life. 

I felt like Cinderella.  Finally!  Finally, I found a pair of jeans that I didn't have to fix anything in order for me to function daily.  

Then, the cream pie effect:  They were CAPRIS.

What kind of Amazonian woman wears these as capris??  Or am I just a Smurf in the real world?
