In response to Erica's most recent post, I must say I am a pretty excellent cook. I, however, almost never cook just because I am SO lazy when it comes to feeding myself. I did, however, on July 21st, according to the secretagentskills of Flickr, cook some pretty mean scallops. As evidenced (is that word?) by this picture:Anyways, those aren't just delicious scallops but delicious scallops with delicious balsamic mushrooms with reduced (!) lettuce something or other. Yeah. You want to be invited to one of my dinner parties, which will be starting once I move into my apartment, which will happen once my building's elevator isn't broken, which better happen before I leave for Seattle!

some Dodgers observations

some Dodgers observations:
  • topiaries? Seriously? What Dodger fan really cares about shaped plants? Especially since the shapes are just hemispheres.
  • Universal Studios is definitely not the center of Los Angeles entertainment.
  • They no longer have cool-named players, except for maybe Saito. I miss Raul Mondesi and Hideo Nomo. They don't have great names, but I also miss: Adrian Beltre, Mark Grudzielanek, Eric Karros, Todd Hollandsworth, and Brett Butler.
This Mederma For Kids commercial is super creepy:

Haven't listed those great eBay items in a while. I have no money currently, but if you wear my size shoes you can buy them and then let me borrow them once in a while. ;-)

  • Navy blue & silver Miu Miu platform pumps.
  • Orange Chloe flats.

I no longer like David Letterman.

David Letterman is really boring. This is somehow a new idea for me. Too bad Huell doesn't start until 12:30 and I don't have cable here. This picture is really awesomely related to this post if you speak hebrew and watch Letterman. woo! unvaried sentence structure.

A few other TV observations:
1. Wilco song "What Light" in Volkswagen commercial.
2. I don't get PBS. What? No PBS! PBS is part of regular TV, isn't it? I am sure it is, and yet I don't get it. At least I got FOX for a House episode I hadn't seen.

Too bad I don't have a 1959 or 1960 model TV!

all in good time

So, apparently I am in no blogging mood these days. I would, however, love to share some more fab internet stuff to peruse.
  • Walk Score. See how walkable your neighborhood is. Mine isn't. Boo. :-(
  • I was driving on Westwood when this "Car Bomb Mystery" happened. Weird. LAist investigates.
  • Top 10 Tacos in West Los Angeles! I haven't been to any of the listed places, so I can't confirm. Feel free to let me know if you can. I gotta recommend the not-listed La Serenata's crispy tacos. yum!
  • These pictured Texans make enjoyable music. Photo by me.
  • Check out more photos by me!
More quick restaurant reviews coming soon!
