Marv just came over and we made a nice rectangular Margherita pizza and some roasted butternut squash.
On top of that, I would like to share this impromptu salad that I concocted
Chocolate Orange Salad
Italian mix greens (1 bag)
Sliced ripened pears (1.5 pears)
Crumpled goat cheese (1/2 a small container)
Chunks of an aged orange. Not too tart, not too sweet. (1 orange)
Salt and pepper (To taste)
Chopped Walnuts (1 small bag)
65% Newman’s Olive Oil and Vinegar dressing
25% Mitsukan Sesame dressing
10% Wishbone Italian
Btw I heard from J5 that Erin et al are doing a Vegas trip? Is that still happening? I’d like to use up my JetBlue voucher!
JRich got traded to the fricken Bobcats! What the hell are the Bobcats?!
My friend left SF to go to Seattle.
Jesus got voted off SYTYCD. Damn Cedric and his humble attitude.
Just thought you all should know. (=
When the big boss is busy, out of the office, or isn’t being bipolar, my work is pretty damn funny. For example, today a couple of my coworkers had to sit in on a conference call with Ah-dee-daz and a couple o factories in Guatemala. The conference call probably went for 2 hours, and it was on speaker the whole time because it was web-based. So I was trying hard to do some work without being distracted by the beeps and random voices in what sounded more like Ham Radio.
Anyway, so an hour passes by, all of the sudden I sensed my coworkers trying to flag my quietly with their hands and made this camera gesture. So being the official in house photographer, I was able to snap this photo:
The day was fun up until my big boss flipped the lid again. But ah tomorrow is another day.
Have you guys heard about this Google street view thing?? It’s fricken amazing!! For now you can cruise the streets of San Fran and New York without being home. I saw some bitch park in my driveway on there, s/he lucky that I wasn’t home!!
Warning! Scrotum cameltoe!

So I asked my boss when I would have a performance review, and she told me by the end of this month last week.
Today she just straight up told me that I got a raise, a 10% raise. WTF man… obviously, there’s no room for debate there right?? Lame lil ole me, I just SMILED and said THANK YOU.
Now I make a whopping 40K, whoopdedooo. Still an upgrade, but weak!
Omigod. I asked an acquaintance Noele, who’s one of my fav photographers, on a whim (since I don’t know her well) if she would be interested in taking one of my pieces for school and shooting it. I love her style so I gave her free reign. I dropped off the dress in November, but today she emailed me some pictures from the shoot!!! The model is her sister.
Damn, this dress was a nightmare to make (I made it 3 times!!!) but it’s my proudest piece of work!! I am so glad I asked her to shoot it.
It’s a white, silk charmeuse dress with ribbed trim and metal zippers at the bottom slits. J5 saw it last year when I wore it to a wedding, but damn, this girl looks much better in it.
I had to kill some time while I was waiting for my friend Susan to come out from Brooklyn over the weekend so I ducked into this boutique I liked called Project 254 in Soho.
On top of having a good selection of cute and not too expensive shoes, this time around they had a ton of colorful frocks that were lined up in a rainbow. So I took the opportunity to try on a few things because I need to get a dress for that wedding I am going to in Pasadena.
At first I was a little thrown off about this hip-hop chic type dude that was manning the store at the time, but he turned out to be totally cool and actually gave me good feedback on the shit I was trying on. He totally didn’t mind getting me sizes and could care less if I actually bought something or not. What a fricken breath of fresh air! I mean, I was trying on fucking $200 dresses! He knew his shit! He knew what came in silk and chiffon! ALL stuck up boutique biatches should be replaced with cute and goofy dudes like Isadoro.
So even though I walked out with “Karma Chameleon” stuck in my head, I just learned about that “Nasty Girl” song by Destiny’s Child. I know I am hella late, but damn that song is funny.
(Doh, I lost my skillz, I don’t know how to embed videos…youtube doesn’t work with Movable Type directly)
Great idea to bring it back Erin! Especially for me who’s been away from the crew! I totally miss having a blog, sometimes I see some funny shit that I would rather post somewhere instead of spamming everyone.
Anyway! So I am gonna be in LA on the 27th. James has signed off that evening so I can go play with you guys. Heheh. So I’ll see yalls soon.
Other than that, I don’t have much to blog about right now except that hanging out with J5 in NY this past weekend was fucking awesome. All my friends love her. Too bad I have no dude friends over there =(
