Korean BBQ Before and After

PhotoGrid_1359135811377

Mark wasn’t sure what he wanted for dinner last night so we went to Korean BBQ two Thursdays in a row!

Not that I’m complaining or anything.

I LOVE Korean BBQ. I think I could eat it for every meal, every day of the week if I had the option to.

It’s the only time I get to eat raw meat. Or practically raw meat. I’m like old white men who like their steaks BLUE!

One time when I asked for my steak “blue” the waiter thought I was asking for bleu cheese.

Made me laugh but worry about my steak at the same time. But luckily they had gotten it correct and it was JUST the way I like it.

Mmm…raw beef tongue! So good! Don’t diss it till you’ve tried it.

And I started working out again yesterday since I’ve been such a slob lately and I feel much better!

I wish I had my partner in crime to exercise with…but alas Los Angeles is not within driving distance of Hawaii. Although Google Maps has directions for you to do so. It just tells you to go to the pier (with your car) and then to proceed onto a boat which will take you across the ocean to California. If only things were so simple.

I’m also going to do some book & movie reviews so you guys can look forward to that too.

I want to make Hong Kong egg tarts next but I just have to order the tart molds on Amazon so I’m going to do that now before I do anything else. Wasn’t sure if I should get the tart mold that looks like a cupcake tray or the individual tart mold containers because the latter option is just so much more expensive…

Decisions…decisions…

So many baking tools that I want but I don’t know where to start!

And everyone really liked my cookies so that made me pretty happy too.

Lake show does it again!

And the Lake Show is on a roll!

Lakers were leading by 15 then tied and it was a close game from the 2nd half on. The Celtics started bringing their game and the Lakers couldn’t stop the Turnovers but it turned out to be an amazing game among lifetime NBA rival teams.

You guys can watch full highlights here. Bynum was on a roll today! All day he was making difficult layup shots and even helping Kobe’s game by knocking in a couple. Fuck it was spectacular!

Ron Artest was ON Rondo like a beast!

What I’m disappointed about? The 17 fuckin turnovers in comparison to the 12 that the Celtics had.

Kobe was of course the leading scorer today with 26 points, then Rondo with 24. Rondo’s been killing it on the road this season and in conjunction with Pierce, they’re still pretty good.

Bynum had 14 rebounds and Pau 13. Overall our shooting was spectacular today! (Except for the free throws, which we’re usually pretty decent at).

Lakers Shooting Stats

FGM-A = 50.7%
3PM-A = 50.0%
FTM-A = 65.4%

That’s pretty phenomenal compared to how we’ve been doing the rest of the season.

Celtics Shooting Stats

FGM-A = 47.0%
3PM-A = 35.3%
FTM-A =  83.3%

FUN FACTS!

* The Lakers and the Celtics have met 12 times in the Finals

* The Celtics have won 17 championships and the Lakers have won 16. Combined that makes 33 out of the total 65 NBA Championship games. That’s more than half!

* The Lakers have been in 31 NBA Finals where the Celtics have been in 21.

* The Lakers have won 8 Season MVP awards and 12 Finals MVP awards.

* The Celtics have produced the most number of MVP winners with 10.

 I mean just WATCH this! Bynum lobs it in for Kobe!

Oddly enough I was wearing my Allen Iverson jersey today…oh well.

And no I didn’t watch the game from the stadium or from the comfort of my own home. I actually haven’t had tv in years. Sooo….I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to work out so I went to the gym to watch the second half of the game.

I actually ended up staying the rest of the 3rd quarter and all of the 4th quarter on the treadmill. I ran about 3 miles and burned over 400 calories by running at an incline. FUCK IT WAS INTENSE! And since I had such a great workout I treated myself with a trip to the grocery store!

I went a little crazy…

Yay! This is the crap that I eat! Now I can enjoy some nice Salmon Crostini while watching an episode of Chopped. But really, after that, I have to get back to writing my contextualization on deconstructionism…it’s getting there…

Now the Lakers are 3rd in the Western Conference with a PCT of 0.610! I’m so proud of you guys!

Yay!

Your mom’s a whore! 64!

It’s Super Bowl Sunday Bitches!

I am the resident Denver Broncos Babydoll Barista of Royal T! I single-handedly fight off the vicious predators who creep on the young unsuspecting girls of Royal T while making espresso masterpieces anyone would be wowed at! All in a day’s work for this crime fighting barista princess! Muhahaha!

I really do love making drinks though…there’s just something about it that I can’t get enough of.

But in all honesty, who cares if they’re (the Broncos) not playing today…I can just go back in time and relive the ’98 & ’99 victory! That’s right! Like I’d abandon my team just because they’re not playing this year. Pff whatever. Anyways it was a pretty cute Sunday. All the girls dressed up like cheerleaders today. Thank you H&M for making baseball tees that are cheerleader themed! Ugh H&M. Anyways it was adorable to see them all matched for the day.

So for those of you who don’t know we use the Pandora application on the cafe ipad to play the music for the whole cafe. Most days everyone has to deal with my obsession with 80s Pop Music and if they don’t like it then that’s too bad because I’m the King of the Bar and the ipad is under my reign of terror! They’ll listen to “Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go” The Extended Version as many times as I want them to. (I’m sorry Phoebe but that’s how things roll). But sometimes all two of the many employees at Royal T who seem to greatly despise 80s pop music are stuck working with me so sometimes I try to be nice and cut them some slack. No, that does not mean that I will listen to weird rap music or some country hippie shit. I said SOME slack not I’m giving up my country for my people shit. So I picked the next best option…the Michael Jackson channel! Phoebe likes Michael Jackson so I was like hey why not. And we all know Pandora, along with programs like Netflix, use algorithms to pick songs that a person would like depending on what they have already listened to and this is what Pandora came up with:

that if I like Michael Jackson that I would also like the “Overture” from The Phantom of the Opera. My question is how the fuck did it know? I LOVE Phantom of the Opera. Touché Pandora…touché.

On a different note though, everyone who knows me knows that I’m a huge car geek. So much so that I’m constantly seen talking to my own car talking about cars to anyone around. I usually have dinner once a week with my bestest car buddy Jack but we went to a Clippers game earlier this week so no dinner. Boo. AND he’s going to be gone for a while. Lame. I guess I’ll just have to go back to sitting at the local park by my house telling whatever pigeon will listen to me about the new LED light craze that has been going around. Ew no, why would I feed them? I’m not crazy or anything. I don’t care if Chinese people think it’s good luck or not. No thank you. But since I have you here reading my blog I might as well tell you my frustration of the day.

Really Dodge? Really? LED’s were so 2+ years ago and the only people who know how to do it right is Audi. And those circular LED lights only look decent on the new corvettes that have them. What are you trying to do? The old Dodge Avenger lights looked just fine. It makes the car look very unflattering and of low quality. What guy in their right mind would drive one of those? Even the Dodge lettering on the back is so unflattering. It adds nothing to a plain surface. What happened to the good old Dodge symbol? Can people not tell that it’s a Dodge unless it fuckin says “DODGE” on the back? Not to mention the lights on the trunk scream “CHEAP!”. We can’t all be Mercedes-Benz now can we when it comes to trunk/rear center brake lights. The new Avenger looks like the ugly unwanted child of a Ford Focus and a Honda Civic. The Avenger is the sister of the Charger that they should’ve kept locked up in the basement. Who would spend any kind of money on that? Why not buy an Avenger from a decent year with a decent design? Not to mention the grill is horrendous, among other things. I think the best year so far is the 2006 Dodge Avenger.

Look how classy the whole feel of the car is? You can just see yourself driving through deserted freeways at night enjoying the illuminated skyscraper scenery of Downtown LA. Well at least I can. That was a good year…But I don’t want to leave anyone on a sour note so here’s a beauty that I saw at the gym on my way to work out.

Oh yeah…and I worked out at the gym today. I love working out! I’ve been feeling a lot healthier lately. Yay!

But here you go…just like I promised.

Such a beauty…

Audi KNOWS what they’re doing when it comes to cars. This brand new Audi A7 was the most gorgeous shade of dark green I have ever seen on a car. Darker than the Jaguar racing green and a lot less shiny metallic than the colors you see on American cars. Everything is so well thought out and the attention to detail on this car is beyond anything anyone will see on other cars in the market right now. Audi is always ahead of their time when it comes to tail light design and I just get such a rush from tracking their style progression throughout the years. Not a thing is out of place. I could talk about this car for hours but I don’t know if anyone would really be that interested. I’ll just leave it at this, a lot of Californians are so caught up with buying a Porsche and Beamer for name’s sake that they forget what automobiles are all about. What happened to caring about look, performance and efficiency? (No I am not talking about that saving gas with higher MPG shit, I’m a purist). I’m just saying, Audi isn’t a name that should be ignored when it comes to considering what cars to buy next.

I guess that’s it for right now. Thanks for reading!
