About Girly Parts

Superficial Sweets

So, last night I ended up the Vagabond for SHAKE, however the purpose for my attendance was to support a great cause, the second annual Goobs for Boobs event to raise money for breast cancer research, it was hosted by Miss. Goobs herself alongside, antisteez.

I mingled, I usually don’t, I’m super antisocial, or at least pretend to be. Had some dude graffiti my hand for a while because he was bored, and had a few words with Goobs regarding a possibly interview with John Mayer, she is by far, one of the coolest chicks I’ve come across in a very long time, and I don’t find many people cool.

After spending a minute inside the hiphop room, I made my way back to the terrace, and just in time for the surprise of the night: the Dunk Tank. Which I must admit I had never been around a dunk tank before, it was fun seeing Goobs get duked in a bucket of water. I also got to spend some time with the girls from Superficial Sweets, they worked long hours in making delicious cupcakes for the event in order to raise money for the cause. Good job girls.

Thank you for the pink butter cream, red velvet, chocolate chip cupcake it was to die for.

Around the Globe

Caught in a deep conversation

Allow me to express what an amazing evening I had Saturday night alongside my husband and one of our many favorite couples: Rudy and S.  We found ourselves at a sweet little bar hidden in the quiet streets of Alhambra in the Gables called the Globe Cafe and Bar.  What can I say about this place? It was like I had gone off to a little private get away in my very own backyard.  It felt like we had stepped into an old Spaniard bistro (if you will) somewhere far away.   The pub had such an amazing jazzy atmosphere that completely sets itself apart from any other place in the area. 

Now, we had the privilege of meeting Mr. Clay who is the pianist that was brilliantly performing that night, and if I may not setting apart Mr. Clay in any which way with his presentation, I have to admit I grew a particular liking to the upright bass player.  Not only was he passionate about his recital but I found him quite charming as he captivated the audience with his bass.  Amazing. 

At this moment you must be thinking: She doesn’t get out much.  And although you are right; let me defend myself by saying that, I have been to concerts before, and I have been out on the town plenty.  However there is nothing like a small intimate setting with great live band playing in the background surrounded by great company and meeting new people as the night progressed.  And even though I had not experience live instrumental music like this before I will assure you it definitely will not be the last.  Thank you  Clay for inviting us it was a pleasure finally meeting you and we will definitely catch up with you on the next round.

I recommend you to check this place out if you haven’t yet— immediately, and when you do please remember me because it is truly a little piece of heaven.

Greetings from New York, “I wish you were here.”

In New York and thinking of you :), V

So my friend V headed over to New York on pleasure and while on her visit there she made sure she kept me posted on all the finest things the city has to offer, starting with the fabulous picture of Macy’s featured above and the rest is self explanatory so enjoy.  If you know me, then you know I LOVE NY, there is nothing like it in the world and I’m so happy to know that when my friends head out to the Big Apple they too think of me.

"So I don't understand her style..."

"Yes he's in a speedo in Central Park"

Broadway

 

"Beautiful building art"

WTC Memorial Plaza.

 Thank you for thinking of me and sending the pictures V they were great.  Enjoy.

Moving to the beat of the Drums

So a drummer buddy of mine has been introducing me to the world of music through the ears of a musician.  I have always loved the way music makes me feel but when he started showing me the ways of the beat, I kind of  took it in and I must admit that I have another appreciation for all of the instruments involved, not just the vocalist. 

 There is another way to listening to music and I must say I am finally understand it better.  Music is more than just words.  It’s listening with you mind, your body not just your heart.    

Thank you Ab, you have become my very own music guru, the beauty is no longer in who holds it, but who is whiling to share it.

Let me express the sexiness that I think is: Russell Brand.

That man is sexy by a million.  He is funny to the top of the wittiest power and his accent isn’t so bad, if I do say so myself.  There is something about the UK.  I know I have a thing for tall, mysterious, neurotic, poetically and tormented men and he is no exception.  Now with all that said, although he is tall, mysterious, neurotic and poetic, the guy seems to be a total doll; his humor is like no one else out there, IMO. 

   When I first saw him in Forgetting Sarah Marshall I felt a little school girl crush coming on, but when Bedtime Stories came out I swore I’d love him FOREVER on end, and I am so happy to report that we will be seeing more of Mr. Brand in the near future.

It would have been convenient to be gay. Just because of the grooming, the narcissism, stuff like that. But I have this kind of roaring heterosexuality. Traditional, uncomplicated heterosexuality, an almost clichéd Robin Askwith thing. People have always said, are you gay? I’ve had a lot of that. But it’s just not in me. I really like women a lot; I’m repulsed by men sexually.”-Russell Brand

 I Love him!

Date Night

 

Date night last night was interesting.  I have never been more excited about date night, the anticipation that = emotion of spending time with the hubs and the beautiful and talented Leonardo Diaprio is more than a girl can ask for. After what seemed like a tropical storm hovering over my pad last night the sky finally opened up, making it possible for me to dressed up and get ready for the evening.

We arrived at ticket booth and got our tickets for two; he then turned to me and said.

“Honey what would you like?” of course I responded with: “everything, everything, and everything.”

But after standing in line for about 5 minutes at the concession stand my choices were limited.  They barely had anything and what I mean by anything, and I do mean (NO gummy bears.)  So a small popcorn, small coke and stale Reese pieces had to suffice.  I didn’t care; I was going to see DiCaprio again.  We arrived kind of early, and even though we did— the theater was amazingly packed for a Tuesday night, which goes to show we were in the presence of a very well written, directed and produced film.  As we sat there waiting we entertained ourselves by watching those arriving a bit late in search for the perfect seating.  Allow me to express how many times I saw this reaction take place, please.

Couple comes in, guy stands and stares trying to spot a seat. Girl looks rather annoyed towards the crowed to find the theater is now packed like tuna and gives the (someone should have saved us a seat) kind of look, (sorry we didn’t know we had too) then with her phone in hand she stares at it, as if in so magical way her high tech phone was going to reveal available seats. I say to this.  Next time: ARRIVE EARLY.  Thanks for playing. 

Anyhow, while the rest of the world was figuring out seating arrangements, I turn to look at the hubs and said:

Are you going to teach me football?

And he says: Yeah sure I will

I said: Will you get me football for dummies?

And he said: Yes I’ll give it to you for Christmas

I said: but I will be late for football season

He said: but you’ll be ready for Super Bowl

I Said: I am not getting on the wagon come super bowl.

He said: Yes baby, I’ll get you football for dummies soon.

 I hope soon is today, because if not, forget football I will learn oragami.

Finally the movie started, and can I say the cast for this film is amazing!!!  I am a sucker for drama but this film was high packed with suspense, thriller and action three thing I never enjoy.  Needless to say-I fell in love with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  He is such a cutie.  Now when Leo said, he was changing the way he comes across on film, I never knew he would partake in being a dad from now on.  This man can bring me to my knees without even trying—well that’s not true, a tear or two will get me there.  But wOW. I am speechless.

Go see this film, its AMAZING! Oh, I already said that.  Well go— because I said so.

Why mornings should be for Coffee. Only.

I met a lady while walking my dog this morning. Her name is Linda Pearl Dunkin (I don’t know who introduces themselves with their full names anymore, the only other person I knew ever to do this, is my brother Eddie) however if that isn’t an all American rich name, than I don’t know what is.

    She’s quite tall and very blonde, and much-much older, wearing what seemed to be a very expensive terry cloth jump suit.  I stopped her for a second to ask her a question. “Excuse me miss where do you take your dog to get groomed?”  And with the most graceful turn she looked at me and said. 

 “I’m a pet groomer myself and I do it from home.  Would you like my number?”  she said in a British accent.

and when I got close enough to get her number she said:

“it’s 786, no wait 305, not that’s not right. Oh dear I do apologize but I seemed to have forgotten my number, I’ve had a bit to drink this morning.” 

 It was 8am.  I’ll take Zeus to Petco.
