Adventures of a gay Internet Programmer in Southern California. I have enough wacky friends and hilarious stories to keep you interested, or at least mildly amused!
Christmas in LA
Usually I spend the holidays in Miami with the family. This year it was too expensive and I was too broke! So I spent it in LA. At first I was a little depressed about it, because I miss my family and Miami, but in the end it turned out to be a really nice Christmas. And I didn’t overeat, so that’s a plus! Whatever free time I had during the long weekend I spent playing Muramasa: the Demon Blade. At first I didn’t like the game too much, but now I’m totally hooked. It’s a hard game, and when you win a battle you definitely feel a sense of accomplishment!
So of course I didn’t spend the whole Christmas weekend playing games. Christmas Eve Mariano wanted to hang out with Rafael and I. Rafael was invited over to a friend’s house for pre-drinks before we set out to Mickys. The friends turned out to live in Mediterranean Village. I thought about moving there when I first moved to West Hollywood because they are run by the same management company that I had in Fort Lauderdale, Archstone Smith. But it was too expensive and I had had a previously bad experience with Archstone Smith. They’re all about money and not about customer service. At least that’s how they were in Florida!
The place was very cute though and Rafael’s friends were very nice. We had like three martini’s there. And I was already drunk from all the wine that we had at our place before! We left to go to Mickys about 45 minutes later. We had a lot of fun at Mickys! My favorite bartender was there, the one that I have a crush on. He goes to my gym but I never say hello. Retarded I know! In the crowd there was a guy wearing a cuban t-shirt. We went up to him to say hi and it turned out he was in fact cuban! There’s been a lot of cuban sightings lately in the LA area We danced and drank some more and then Mariano and I headed over to Pizza Rustica to sober up. I was totally fucked up!
Christmas day I woke up with one crazy hang over. But Rafael and I went to Pavilions to get some food for our get together at Mariano’s house. We settled on Lasagna and garlic bread. We met up with Jim who was already there at Mariano’s house. Mariano’s house in Thousand Oaks was so cute! It was a beautiful neighborhood. My favorite spot in the house was the back yard. It had a beautiful saltwater pool and jacuzzi. But the view was towards these hills and canyons. It was breathtaking! We spent most of the time soaking up in the warm pool! It was nice!!! Dinner was ready and we had a feast! We rented Julie & Julia on PayPerView and settled down to watch it. Jim and I really liked it, Mariano and Rafael hated it. HATED IT! I thought it was a super cute movie and Mery Streep did an amazing Julia Child! AMAZING! Amy Adams was really good too. But I generally like everything that she does! After the movie we all headed home.
Saturday Rafael and I took it slow. I received a five dollar coupon from Amazon Video on Demand so we downloaded Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince for free. I’m glad it was free! Rafael and I didn’t like it. It really seemed to lag on and on. It only got interesting in the last 15 minutes. I also hated how dark it was. You can barely see parts of the movie. Things like that really frustrate me. I get the whole artistic angle, but it was way too dark to see anything. I think there are better ways of doing it! Needless to say we hated it!!! HATED IT! Saturday night we were going to see Avatar with Mariano. But of course he ditched us and didn’t even call me. He was going to go out and take Rafael with him, and he didn’t even call Rafael back. Ghetto. But that’s Mariano for you!
Sunday was my do all my errands day! I took Lola to the groomers. I went to Best Buy to get a new router, I got my car washed, and I got some groceries to do laundry. I felt such a sense of accomplishment when I did all the things on my to-do-list. It felt great. I’m so glad I bought a new router. My old one was acting up. The new one is really efficient and makes my wireless network super fast! Rafael’s laptop and my Wii were dropping the weireless signal before, and now it’s perfect!! I was really happy when I finished reworking all my wireless peripherals.
To wind down from a busy sunday, and to do something while my laundry was going, Rafael and I decided to watch Make the Yuletide Gay on NetFlix Streaming on TiVo. Since I had installed my new router, the movie was streaming in HD across the internet. It was amazing! The movie itself was pretty bad. It was super gay bad actually. The acting was aweful. The script was horrendous. There were so many tired double entendres, and I thought it was pretty bad stereotyping of people from the MidWest. It was just horrible. But hey at least I got to try out NetFlix Streaming with my new super fast router!!! Yeh!
What a great weekend! It has definitely put me in a very good mood!
