This year's Thanksgiving wasn't so traditional. My dad's family was in town, and it was a very Jamaican Thanksgiving..there was turkey, but also escoveitch fish, curry crab, rice'n'peas and other jamaican delicacies....and all I wanted was pumpkin pie! I am American!!!!

So I talked to Kiersten pre-thanksgiving and said plz plz plzzzzz hook it up with a slice of pumpkin pie!

After family left my house, I headed over to her place and we exchanged desserts. I brought a slice of birthday rum cake for her and then I got sum a dat pie!!!

I started a new job on Wednesday, and now my weekends are engulfed with work. I am not complaining, because I need the money, however it just sucks during the holidays because friends are in town, and I work till midnight. I did manage to see Ari for a little bit and eat some filipino goodies, and also see Janine--who always rules.

I always like to look at random tumblrs, and figured I'd start one strictly for all the food activities on my site. With the 6 years of website existence, there is a lot of that.

So if you're down with the tumblr activities, follow me! or lurk the goodies.

The day before Thanksgiving my mom and I stopped at Burger King, and I saw this on the door and immediately said, "IS THAT JACOB ON THE DOOR? IS THAT JACOB ON THE DOOR???" and my mom then said "WHO IS JACOB?? DO YOU KNOW HIM?"

So yes, New Moon is certainly at Burger King.

I got an email invite to the Dos Equis "Most Interesting Show in the World" tour, and Elena and I went on Thursday night. Angelo Moore, saxophonist of Fishbone, was the MC for the night, and that dude is a ball of energy. There were blindfolded knife-throwers, beatboxer lady, an opera singing acrobat, crossbow masters, burlesque dancers, a human slinky, and a dude who balanced a working lawnmower on his chin (they even threw lettuce at the blade to show you it was working---NUTS! shredded lettuce everywhere!)

I forgot to mention that there was free and unlimited Dos Equis! Cheers to that!

Here is my footage of the Human Slinky... When "it" first came out I was shocked and in awe...and then started taping afterwards.

On Friday I saw NEW MOON with Kiersten! Ughhh it was so good. I'm not a Twilight book reader, but I do find joy in the movies and if you want to get real technical and retarded wit it, yes, I am on Team Edward. Kiersten and I did our in-car reviews of the film and talked about how we felt about them for a good 20 minutes. I found it interesting that the werewolves are actually hot latino men pretending to be Native Americans. Also Jacob's body transformation is SERIOUS!!!!! WHATS UP...but you are 17 in real life, and we are all pedophiles...until Feb 11, 2010 when you are then 18 years old. haha....and that is all you will ever hear me talk about the Twilight saga until Eclipse comes out next summer.

Saturday night my family and I celebrated good news for my Dad and ate at a Chinese spot in south Miami. The oranges+fortune cookies display was impressive.

Then on the drive back home my dad said "You wanna get a bud?" and I said "WHAT DID YOU SAY?" ..."do you wanna get a bud?"........."HUH? WHATS A BUD??????..OH BEER? WHAAAAAAT?"

My parents are not big on drinking alcohol. The only alcohol we have in the house is cooking wine--for the old Jamaican favorite "Ginger Wine soup" and usually only drink for special occasions/weddings and stuff. So I was pumped my dad wanted to go get a drink. It was the first time I drank alcohol with my parents in a bar setting, and I texted my older sister "I'm drinking beer with MOM AND DAD" and she was bummed because she hasn't even done that yet.

As the semester is winding down, things are starting to get real. Right now is the calm before the storm, but next week I will be consumed with writing papers, and hating college. I recently signed up for Spring semester..which will consist of 18 credits (6 classes + 1 discussion = no life) and will be on track to graduate Summer 2010. GRADUATE. COLLEGE. Ay carumba.

Last week Our Kitchen Sink and Street Carnage both posted this video, and it was hilarious enough for me to share too.

One of the things I miss most about living in Orlando, is the plentiful locations of PITA PIT. The frequently visited locations included one by my old apartment near the UCF campus, and another conveniently located outside da clubs downtown...and I would ALWAYS LOVE IT! So since I moved back to south florida, I'm always craving the orlando pita goodness...until Kiersten notified me that she saw one down here! And in fact there are 3 locations in soFla (Lauderhill, Ft.Lauderdale, Miami)!!!!!! The fat kid inside rejoiced, and finally I reconnected with my old friend the chicken breast pita, with lettuce, tomato, green peppers, pineapples and RANCH. I know what you're thinking, but trust me, it is the jam.

That was written by a cutie pie fiance :), but not my fiance :(

We scooped up this Choco Banana Pocky..and it's AWESOME.

This was in my inbox.

This was in my friend requests, and upon further investigation, that default is really him (thought it was a joke) with a top 40 friend list of asian girls.
APPROVED!......jk, barf rambo.

I love black radio, not as much as hardcore and metal, but that shit is NOT on the with a broken cd player I get with what IS on.

Kiersten, her mom and I went wedding dress shopping! CAN I TELL YOU HOW MUCH FUN THAT IS!!! Do you want strapless? beadwork? lace? sweetheart cut? a-line? train? Kiersten is not at all a veil person, and this girl wanted her to try one with every dress. This is not the winning dress, and that will never be the veil. This is her "this bitch is crazy, get this shit off my head" face.

Lots of awesome dresses, but not THE PERFECT one, yet.

I found a vault of pics from 2007/2008 of orlando/universal studio/valencia days.

It's never a dull moment in Orlando.

Lastly, thank you Our Kitchen for bringing this to my attention. This is my kind of guy, with that Kenny Powers thinking.

Friendship weekend is the best way to describe this weekend.

Last night was No Hard Feelings' annual holiday charity food drive/toys4tots event. This burlesque dancer was good. real good.

Eric & Kiersten <333333333

Jeffy was forced to dress like a hotdog. The wind was blowing my red dress in all directions. I was basically a chinese marilyn monroe.

Elena and her sisters turned 23. We celebrated at her friend's ballin mansion by the beach. Her other friend baked this cake...from SCRATCH. 3 chocolate layers and strawberry insides!

Dana flew in from Philadelphia for the weekend. She's doing grad school at Temple! We have a mutual love for chicken nuggets, so we really made plans to go to lunch at Mcdonalds. Apparently there aren't a lot of fast food spots near where she lives, so she missed the simple things! She was also chosen to participate in my people section, so check her out. Regarding this chicken nugget, one of my favorite movie scenes is in Saving Silverman, when Jack Black is eating nachos and says "If you get the nachos stuck together, that's, one nacho." and these 2 nuggets were stuck together, thus, 1 nugget. Therefore, I got 9 nuggets in a 10pc. But then it was heart shaped, so I wasn't upset.

School was relatively quiet this week, and that's what I like. My friends Elena and Jenny celebrated their birthdays on Tuesday. Happy Birthday my lovelies!

Here are some awesome Halloween costumes from respectable bands.

Recently Gavin Mcinnes received a letter from the American Mustache Institute, and I really liked what he had to say about it.

I hope you all had a happy halloween! Daria Darko? I think yes.

Kiersten and I hit up Chipotle for their annual halloween "Boo-Rito Day". You dress up like a burrito...aka put some foil on you and you get a free burrito. WHO'S GOING TO SAY NO TO THAT?

My sister did my nails before she left for California. This has nothing to do with Halloween.

Skeleton and Jurassic Park guide............speaking of awesome, Congratulations Kiersten and Eric! They got engaged this morning and I am sososososososo excited and happy for them~!~!~!!!!!!
