Farewell to my black strappys

Oh the vegas trip ... I finally retired my favorite black strappy going out shoes! I was so sad...but I think it was time for her to hit the can, the trash can that is. I've had these shoes since 1999, and I love them for the following reasons:
1) It matches anything because its black
2) It has a nice thick heal so I don't fall
3) It makes me taller
4) It has velcro for the lazy people like me
5) It is super duper comfortable, and I can dance all night in them
Now I am black-shoe less, and I've been going shopping to find new black strappy shoes, but have not found one yet...so my searching continues.

Oh I am so sad that I no longer have my shoes!!

I'm finally TwentySexy




Oh how I love vegas!!! This past weekend was my TwentySexy Birthday in Vegas. I think everything went perfect!! Friday night we went to Jimmy Buffet's MargaritaVille!! Love that place...they have the best mango daquari, yummy yum yum, and the food was pretty good too. Friday night also included...going out to the PURE at Ceaser's Palace...highlights include: seeing DJ AM, drinking beer, getting drunk, spilling drinks, and dancing the night away.
Saturday was my favorite...highlights include: losing $60 gambling, Bellagio Buffet, Zumanity at NYNY hotel (it is not a sex show, but rather a show of open sexuality, LOVED IT), more beer, Amarula, Midori Sours, My buddy winning the jackpot at Bellagio --> VIP treatment into the LIGHT, dancing, drinking some more, and dancing the night away.
Sunday --> woke up...showered...ate at 'wichcraft sandwiches owned by Chef Tom Coliccio from Top Chef!! YUMMY if your ever at the MGM grand you gotta get a sandwich there. Rest of the day was spent in traffic heading home to LA!!
It was the best birthday ever!! Thank you to my girls who made it so much fun...Thanks Zeela, Heidi, Kay, and Cindy!!

What are Happy Hippos


I had a bet with my co-worker: I couldn't eat any sweets, candies, or chips for one month!! I made it...yippee. I can now eat chocolate, and what I ate first was ice cream...seriously something I can't live without. But now I can eat my Happy Hippos which have been sitting on my desk for the past two weeks. These are lovely wafers with hazelnut chocolate cream inside but its shapped like a hippo...a happy one!
I love them and I can't seem to find any here in the states, so whenever my german co-worker's girlfriend comes to visit or if he goes back to Germany he brings some...boy are they delicious!

A Blog...I have a Blog!

My first blog entry...I've been inspired by my friend Curtis who is currently studying Chinese in the most appropriate place, you guessed it, CHINA. Anyways...I haven't really visited his site for a long while, and then went on to see how he was doing. He always has the coolest things up there. And its pretty interesting and a good way to experience China in his eyes. But anyways...I just know this blog thing will take up some time, so when I get bored at work...is probably when I'll be filling in whats going on.

So...Welcome...to my everyday thoughts. Lately the main thing that has been bothering me are gas prices...WTF...it's been getting pretty bad here in San Diego. Gas is now at least $3.50 a gallon. Which to me is really cutting into my small and tight budget. I've decided to do a carpool at work and also thinking of buying a bike to bike around nearby places. I know a couple of my friends from back home that already bought bikes for this reason. What also sucks here in Southern California is the public transportation. We really have no other option than to drive to places. I wish we had some sort of metro system here in San Diego, but I guess everything is too widespread. Hopefully the gas prices will drop...but looking at who we have as president...I highly doubt it.
