This is gonna be a long post, so I think I’ll work my way backwards.
Tonight, I went to my first LA show. My friend and I went to watch a band called Handsome as Sin. I had a wonderful time. I really like their sound and I think I learned a few things/had the most random realizations whilst being in The Viper Room:
- The difference between fangirl and groupie has got to be: fangirls = more awkward, less sexy. I am totally a Handsome as Sin fangirl now.
- Headbanging must cause some sort of head trauma. I need to stop thinking like a caregiver.
- Plaid. Plaid. Plaid. Plaid. Plaid. PLAID. When in doubt, wear plaid.
- Starting a mosh pit is hard. Shout out to the guy who tried to start one. You get an “A” for effort.
I’d go into the nuances of what I like about the band… if I could pinpoint exactly what it was… but I’m the type to like music and really not know why. So click the link, find their clips, and I hope you’ll end up impatiently waiting for their album like me!
After we watched Handsome as Sin, we went to go get noodles and dumplings in Koreatown. I haven’t had it in ages and that place has free freaking noodle refills. I’ve never made it past the first bowl, but I want to one day. I feel like such a fatty. I had sashimi/sushi/crab legs at lunch with Big Momma Bee today too. It’s been a great Sunday.
I took in Optimus to get his brakes fixed and that pretty much took up most of my morning. I need to go in again tomorrow and get some fluids put in him, but other than that, he’s back in action. I’m ready to drive and be stoopid again!
While I was waiting for Optimus to get fixed, I went off and got some Red Robin for my forever alone lunch. Cheeseburger, milkshake and bottomless fries? OM NOM NOM.
Ahtee Bee and her man came by for a visit yesterday and I finally got a chance to give her the Christmas presents we got her. I picked out a pair of super comfy black flats and some hip and with-it Minnetonka mocs for her. I hastily wrapped them in panda christmas wrapping paper.
As it’s my birthday month, I asked her for a food processor because well… doing it by hand sucks. So, since she wasn’t sure if we’d see each other again before my birthday, she brought it… unwrapped. Nice.
I took Ahtee Bee and her man for some AYCE Korean BBQ and then we went to see Big K and Little K at their godmother’s house. I have no pics from that because I was too excited. I love Korean BBQ.
Thursday night was one of those nights where I couldn’t sleep, so I decided to bake/make truffles. I worked on Doctor Blue’s Velvet Truffle and the Evil Ahtee. The Evil Ahtee turned out too minty and the DBVT ended up too cream cheese-y, but I like them over all. They only need tweaking, which is more than I can say for the Kooyah. In the evening, I picked up Big Momma Bee then hitched a ride to Pasadena to pick up some car parts and then go off to LA to have some Korean Tofu Soup. I just realized it’s been pretty much a Korean food weekend. Here are some quick pics to see what Friday was like:
The weekend was so good and I’ve probably gained back all the weight I’ve lost, but it’s my birth month, so I don’t care! :p
Well I’ve got a lot to do later today, including some Beef Bulgogi tacos… sooooo goodnight!
I loved this post. I too think we should celebrate our birth months instead of only being able to splurge for one day 😉
Thank you! I’ve always believed that it should be a birth month and not just the birthday (and birth years during major milestone birthdays). Plus February is so short, I may as well make the most of it! I hope your birth month is spectacular!
