A Lot of Eating.

Look at this! Pretty cool. I think I am helping Joe’s Jeans make money, and since they are my favorite jean brand I’m okay with that.

Anyway, on to grander things.

Another week of work, more U.S.A. hockey to watch, and well, more Whitney-esque disasters, like leaving work after 2 hours due to a stomach flu. Bad timing indeed.

I was sad to see Cameron’s parents go on Wednesday morning. We really enjoyed having them around, and it was nice to have some help with Jules in the morning for both of us! They fed us tons of great food. Le Bouchon Du Grove’s brunch was incredible- there were omelets, fresh French bread, free mimosas (!), unbelievable eggs Benedict, and a nicoise salad to die for! I know I was supposed to eat brunch food, but the salad was calling me instead. I made the right choice. I then tried Cuban food for the first time on Monday! I ate rice, rotisserie chicken, a tamale, and flan. This all came from El Palacio de  Los Jugos, which is a Cuban market. And no, I did not try the pork they brought home. Sunday night we ate at one of my instant favorite places Moon, which is Japanese and Thai food (at a great price). I love their red curry, coconut shrimp, drunken noodles, and sushi. Tuesday we tried Calamari in the Grove, which I read positive reviews about on Yelp and in Zagat. They serve Italian seafood dishes, and we each tried a pasta dish loaded with fresh seafood. Every sauce was slightly different, though mostly there were a lot of incredible variations of pink sauce variations on our food. Their portions were HUGE, so I highly recommend sharing a dish and a salad or something instead of everyone ordering a dish. We had way too many leftovers and the seafood doesn’t really keep that well in the fridge.

We went to Lucky Strike Friday with our friends Jenn and Will, and then stayed in last night with a great Malbec, cheese and crackers, and the movie A Serious Man, which literally has no ending whatsoever. Thanks Coen brothers. JERKS! Now we’re going to order Chinese food to fulfill my craving at Chef Tian Express… we shall see how Miami Chinese food tastes!

Yes, There is a McDonald’s on McDonald Street.

I’m still interviewing for jobs. I tried some rice macaroni and cheese for lunch, but I’m not that impressed with it. It doesn’t really compare well to the classic Kraft kind.

We went out yesterday to a dive bar called The Sandbar just down the street from us for penny beers. On Wednesdays, they do penny beers at 10 pm until they run out of the kegs they use for it (no idea how many). Whatever it is, it is a bargain and they also have 1/2 off Hurricanes (categories 1-5 are all drink options, I went for a 3). Can’t help but wonder how Cameron is feeling today after that adventure with his classmate and his girlfriend.

I just returned from Merrick Village where I did not find the Joe’s Jeans “The Legging” I wanted. I got a pair in charcoal two weeks ago, which sent me on a mission for the second pair in a different color. Neiman Marcus also had them, but they were about $20 more expensive there and also not in the color I wanted. If you like style and comfort, I recommend trying on “The Legging”. They go with everything and flatter most body types. Just be careful, they’re tight and you have to watch what you wear underneath!

I’m previewing the new Lady Antebellum album, which comes out this Tuesday. It is not a sophomore slouch, so I am looking forward to purchasing it next week. Comcast came out again today and found that our connections rusted outdoors. How interesting, seeing as it was recently installed… thanks for not noticing. The menu for the evening is Quinoa rotini with plum tomatoes, feta, olive oil, minced garlic, zucchini, and bell pepper. The TV schedule is such: Vampire Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy, and then Project Runway. It’s been a while since I got to stare at the hot vampires on the show in HD. Since Thursday is most of the TV I watch, I had to select 3 options that Cameron wouldn’t want to watch since he’s going to sleep. We will watch 30 Rock and The Office online and surely there will be 40 Jersey Shore reruns by Sunday.

I need to find a sushi restaurant soon or I am going to have to purchase raw salmon at Publix and make rice and pretend I’m eating sushi back in Hermosa Beach.
