I got out of work early on Saturday night and got to chillski with Kiersten. We fondid it up! Bread, apples, and broccoli dipped in cheese...mmmmmm

Aziz Ansari looks like a shorter version of my cousin Rory. Anyways I recently got his comedy cd "Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening" and that is absolutely hilarious. Here's a good clip..

Yesterday Erica and I saw Cursive and Alkaline Trio. I didn't have a chance to buy tickets at the box office, so instead I got raped by ticketmaster. $17 ticket magically turned into $30. Ticketmaster is a dickhead. But anyhoo, the show was fantastic.

It was the first time I've seen Cursive live, and they were soooooooooooooooooo good.

Matt Skiba is so attractive. He's the only man I'd be okay sharing my eyeliner with. and that is saying a lot.

I guess it's new music wednesday. The 3 newest albums in my iTunes are:

Alicia Keys - The Element Of Freedom
Four Year Strong - Enemy of the World
Nick Jonas & The Administration - Who I Am

They are on 3 completely different spectrums, but I love them.

And in no relation to this music post, here is a video that I laugh at every time.

2010 photo section 3 is now set up with the rest of the San Francisco trip. My sister finally sent her pics, therefore hence it is now complete.

For my sister's birthday dinner, we went to Tommy Toy's and had the signature 6 course meal. That shit was off the chaaaaaaaaaain. I copied this from their site..
1st course = Crispy Prawns Chinoise with Five Spices and Baby Greens
2nd course = Seafood Bisque Oven Baked in Fresh Coconut, Crowned with Puff Pastry
3rd course = Fresh Whole Maine Lobster with Golden Chives in Peppercorn Sauce served over Angel Hair Crystal Noodles
4th course = Peking Duck in Lotus Buns Served with Hoisin Sauce *Carved Table-side
5th course = Medallions of Filet Mignon Wok-Charred with Garlic and Rosemary in Red Wine and Balsamic Vinegar Reduction Accompanied with Tender Asparagus Spears and Four Seasons Fried Rice
6th course = Peach Mousse in Strawberry Coulis

It. was. awesome.

and this is from her birthday lunch...

This has basically become a blog about 50% my life, 50% food. I am okay with that.

Marisa told me about this hole in the wall restaurant called Talia's that has "the most amazing sandwiches for $5" -- SHE WAS RIGHT. I got the "Marconi" which was turkey with seasonings, citrus mayo + other yummies, and I thought mine was good..then I tried Marisa's "Michaelangelo" and it made my sandwich taste like shit. Hers was an herb chicken cutlet, with eggplant and mozzarella ...and simply divine. Local friends need to hit that place up!

Afterwards we hit up this show..

It's been a while since I've seen Protagonist and Fallen From The Sky on the same bill, and it was nice seeing all my boyfriendz together. A lot of the kids were going apeshit over The Wonder Years. I've heard of them, but hadn't listened to them until that night, and I don't get it. Crime In Stereo was good! I wish the Talent Farm wasn't so far away into the everglades almost, but overall it was fantastic night filled with good music and friends :)

Yesterday I rented Whip It since I missed the screening in class. Took it to Kiersten's crib and we had a cute pizza & movie night. The movie actually ruled, Drew Barrymore dun did good. The strong female all star cast helped.

Today I did some cleaning and came across an old Double or Nothing Records sampler from 2006. straight gold baby!

It's been a busy past few days, and I am back on the east coast. I had a red eye flight on Thursday night, and woke up in Florida on Friday morning. Then I immediately went back into the grind of work. I had so much fun in San Francisco! My fisheye love has been rekindled.

Mona has a friend who always gets tickets for advanced screenings, so we saw "She's Out of My League" last week and that movie was hilarious! Jay Baruchel is oddly adorable.

Yesterday I had a chance to have lunch with Ari before she went back up to Gainesville.

Our original plan was to go to my favorite thai place, but they were closed! So we settled for ze olive garden.

I can't believe I go back to school tomorrow. FEELS WEIRD.

Lastly, for Mona's birthday I took her to do the segway tour of San Francisco. It was seriously so much fun. Here is VIDEO PROOF.

We ate at Tommy Toy's for Mona's birthday dinner, and had the signature 6 course dinner. Every course was soooooooo good, and the 6th was this peach mousse that was absolutely heavenly.

I wear the smaller version of this hair clip probably 3 out of the 7 days of the week...and this extreme one is too awesome. To no use, but still awesome.

I love THE HUNDREDS and finally got to shop in the San Francisco store.

San Francisco is so awesome. So much to see, so much to eat, so much to photograph...

I'm in San Francisco and today is Mona's birthday! For lunch, we went to the Crab House at Pier 39..soo yummy. I'm here for Spring Break (which conveniently coincided with her birthday)! I got here on Friday afternoon and it's been eating nonstop, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

On Wednesday my homie Jessica invited me to see Henry Rollins spoken word tour. I'm not a Henry Rollins fan because of Black Flag, I just like spoken word, and I know he has interesting shit to say. I've heard his spoken word before, but hearing and seeing him live is 1000x better. The way he speaks to you is like he's your bestie that you haven't seen in 5 years and you're catching up on all the crazy shit that happened. He had a story about being friends with William Shatner in which he calls him "Bill" + Thanksgiving dinner, also stories on travels to Saudia Arabia, Sarah Palin, being the commencement speaker at Sonoma state university, playing a white-supremacist gang leader on Sons of Anarchy, RuPaul, and the way he talks about Bad Brains is kind of poetic. He also has a fantastic vocabulary and mentioned some of the most random, obscure references that I loved. At one point he said something about iambic pentameter and I almost lost it. I can't wait to see him again.

I made this In My Dashboard 7 on a whim today.

It's New Found Glory - Not Without A Fight! Under 2 mins!

Tomorrow is my last stress/essaydue/midterm day, then SPRING BREAK BEGINS.

Janine was in town for about 12 hours, and she brought her neat camera with all sorts of features.

I have a midterm every day this week, and right now instead of studying, I put together the first section of pictures for 2010!
