Saturday night the doctor came up with a couple of her doctor friends. They came straight to the bar, we had gone out earlier for sushi at Sushi Sake, which was pretty good. I really like escolar, delicious and cheaper than the overpriced o-toro. Anyway we hung out at Mugshotz all night and since my boy had sent out an email proclaiming it to be his birthday celebration, at least 30 people showed up. Probably more...we had the entire patio taken over at one point. It was a ton of fun, I talked to a bunch of different people for half the night and ended the night talking to the doctor. She told me to come back and stay at their hotel room, so even though it was all four of us in the same room, it was a lot of fun. Man she's a fun chick. Lusty, is that the word? Not that she's not attractive but all that doesn't seem to interest me as much as most people...but when she's into it, it's all worth it. It's nice being in shape too because I never really tire out or anything. Yea, skinny women are totally overrated. Give me an hourglass figure any day of the week. I love those childbearing hips.
So we finished off the weekend at Taqueria Arandas #3 Sunday afternoon, only the best restaurant in the history of the world. I can absolutely not get enough of that place. The al pastor burrito tasted like such an indulgence. I got some lengua tacos on the side because I wanted to try them, I think I actually like lengua a little more than barbacoa, although barbacoa is good in a burrito.
So on the subject of food I've been eating out and cooking different stuff as much as possible. There's a new sushi place just down the road and I ate there twice for lunch this past weekend. Nothing fancy and I just ate rolls, but it's cool to have a place like that around. Plus I spent like half an hour chatting with the chef Sunday which was cool although weird. Chatting with people who don't speak fluent English always makes me a little uncomfortable. I had some nice copper river salmon last night, which I didn't think was better than any other wild caught salmon I've ever had, but it all definitely beats the farm raised stuff. I've been hitting up the farmer's market in Dallas and also made it out to a barbecue joint called Red, Hot, & Blue. The dry ribs were pretty solid, the sausage was decent and the brisket was a little weak. I have a massive list of places to try and I still want to keep trying to cook new things. I did come up with a great way to cook spinach: heat peanut oil HOT in a wok just until it smokes, dump in the roughly chopped, already salted spinach and stir fry for 1-2 minutes, remove from heat and finish with just a bit of sesame oil, after the wok's cooled a little bit.
I've been reading the 5th book in the newish drow series, Annihilation. It's actually not too bad, for what it is. Next up is Kerouac's On the Road, the first and only book my little brother ever read of his own volition. The fact that he read a book without having to utterly amazed everybody in my family. The kid's always hated books. I know there's a lot of books I'd like to read but I have a tendency to forget them and then I end up back with the schlocky fantasy crap I seem to be addicted to.
So work has been frustrating and stuff but that's nothing new. Basically, it's just sad that I'm still doing what I'm doing. But I just don't have any desire to make it a priority in life to learn new stuff and go do all this EE stuff. I'd rather cook, workout, watch sports, yada yada.
Speaking of, had to watch the Stars lose to Vancouver the other night. Man those fans were lovin that game and who can blame them. That leaves the Mavs for D-town, hope they don't let us down. I'm not ready to jump ship after they lost game 1 to Nellie's Warriors, but they need to get things going tonight. Mavs - Pistons...I'm hopin.
I watched Idiocracy this weekend. A mildly amusing movie. Watchable at the least, but hardly great. Had a couple good lines. Loved it when he knocked on the lawyer's door and he just yells out "batin".
Ok that's pretty long. Back to my boring ass job.
