Animal Control….July 24, 2007 - Current Mood: Snacky

It’s been non-stop since the 4th of July – and the month is already almost over! Started with Drew’s 4th of July BBQ and mini D.I.Y. fireworks show. Then Reina’s b-day party at Levende with Errico & the Misscrewers, and Liz and Danny joining in at 3am for Mexican breakfast bonding. Then there was Sara’s Planes, Trains, Automobiles themed housewarming party – where I observed a cycle of very young almost hipster kids trying to be too cool for school but desperately an uncomfortably not quite making the mark. Low point of observation is when I heard someone state they had to go “check on their playlist” to make sure it stayed with the theme of the party and would be devastated if a mismatched song made it in ……There was Kevin’s 30th b-day BBQ, and the most interesting part of the night happened to be when James was walking Kelly and I to Bart and Alfie the Troll Window man at 18th and Valencia waved to me and opened his window and gave us a private 10 minute interview, which I found absolutely fascinating. http://www.sftrollwindow.blogspot.com/ . Watched Grey Gardens a documentary made in the 70s about the ever reclusive and eccentric mother/daughter duo, the Edie Bouvier Beales, living in their dilapidated East Hampton 28 room mansion. The Chow Nasty album release party at the Independent was incredibly fun, and then Chow Nasty kick off tour BBQ at the house was a good time full of good eats (chicken apple sausage stuffed with gouda and bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers were the hit dishes). Did a lot of shopping this week, had a happy birthday massage. My Vessel Hip Hop birthday party got postponed due to a change in plans, and my cousin’s bachelorette party was a great celebratory time, nails did, dinner, dancing, perks being a room at the Clift and some large Hermes gift boxes I’ll use for storage that I found in its hallway.

On my mind this week:

1. I had no idea lap dances were given at the Independent. I was seated on a chair after the Chow Nasty show, when my sister yelled out jokingly, “This girl needs a lapdance!” and a Sam came over and gave me a pretty good one.

4. The Kwans are sad cause our family dog, Wing, Wing is missing. She got out of the yard Friday night and hasn’t been seen since. If anyone sees a half Rott/Terrier mix with a flippy tail running around Alameda, please let me know.

5. I truly have awesome friends and family. Thanks for all the birthday wishes and treats!
