But...I'll do a whole Hood to Coast post later. I am a procrastinator, so no need for any blogging or preparation until the 11th hour!
It's time for.....F Yeah Friday! (A celebration of all things awesome during the week)
I've always been a fan of Cuban food, but let me tell you about my two separate culinary-heaven experiences this week. It started out on Saturday with Ropa Vieja at Versailles in Venice Beach. What's Ropa Vieja?
Tender Shredded Beef in a Tomato-y delicious sauce. My description doesn't do it credit though. Run, don't walk to your closest Cuban establishment and try it.
|Just kidding, smoking is BAD-4-U|
2) Jet Blue: My flights to and from San Francisco were both delayed. Annoying? Yeah. Worthy of compensation? Probably not. But they emailed me a $25 dollar gift certificate to apologize. Nicely done, nicely done.
3) Sex And The City Repeats: Whenever I get home from work, I often kick back and catch up on some good old SATC.
Uhhhh...Sex and the City went off the air years ago.
Whatever dude, it's still a great show. I watched SATC at it's height in the early 2000s when I was in college. I loved the idea of the disposable cute boys, $600 shoes, and brunches at hip places in NYC. It's a fantasy world! BUT while I am willing to accept all other ridiculous parts of their lives, I just can't come to terms with Carrie ending up with Mr. Big. He was charming, but put her through so much and was totally a jackass!
I bet most of us had our Mr. Bigs in our lives: An unattainable - emotionally unavailable - gives you just enough to hang on - totally does it for you -guy.
In what parallel universe does anyone actually end up with that guy? Do you know anyone who did?
I know its bad TV, but I want Carrie to meet some dude 100x better and nicer than Mr. Big and that's how the series ends. Possibly with a choreographed dance routine to Beyonce's "Single Ladies".
If ya liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it.
Alright alright enough about Sex and the City...I'm not ready to make this blog a relationship blog...yet.
