how to mend a broken heart

eat?, nah no appetite
shop? maybe, but ....
grocery shop? at bit of both and so satisfying. even if it was for work. but i do get a little excited about going into a new exotic market, call me weird, it wouldn't be the first time.
ranch 99 was a little therapy, some giggles and knowledge- every time, even if i do get funny looks from the regulars.
the biggest korean pears that i have seen yet. crunchy and super sweet. 

i just like the random name, makes me laugh inside- still.
hmm, i am feeling empathic to the name.
i tried to take a picture of this once before but got the mean eye from the fishmonger.

topsy turvy

as of late i unintentionally turned my little semi idyllic life upside down. i am not quite sure why and how it happened but it did and i sit here wondering, just wondering.

bow to me

i cant figure out if i would actually wear any of  these out. dont get me wrong i think they are beautiful and envied, but there is a fine line between gorgeous and ridiculous, especially when you become a certain age, or else i would totally sport the big pink bow.
i do love , these though. i have come to understand why someone would want to become a stylist or designer, because you can fufill all your spending urges and put them to good use.
but these little ones make total sense. and are so cute hmm.

before its too late

yeah, i went back to nickel diner for breakfast on easter after trying to try caneles in atwater and it was closed. they had these air light homemade marshmallow cuter than peeps that were dusted with coconut, besides having a doughnuts halved in yummy buttercream.
and we were lucky and innocent faced enough to fake out a second helping.

i dont like change

when gus's reopened as the "new and improved" vegas stylized bbq joint. i was never really open to the idea. i loved the beehived waitresses and runny bbq sauce of the original, i did not see any reason to change my monthly beer and pork sandwich. i did patronize gus's after it opened and received rave review. my review- eh?, totally different bbq idea, over stylized bar, i don't have a strong reason to dislike it other than they changed my neighborhood spot and i miss it.
so... with that issue that i carry, i still decided to go to the boat to check out how they f***ed up this favorite of mine. 
during construction, we kept having conversations about how it will never be the same because the layout was so funky and unconventional, we kept watching for the ship facade to go back up in anticipation for the steak fries and saucy burger. we frequented clearman's as a substitute, not the same. once it did reopen, lines were out the door every time we passed by. then to my glee, one day the line was unpronounced from the outside and we decided to risk it and enter with our mouths watering.
they kept the same idea of the cafeteria line through they galley, in which i quickly caught on, but they added another line for salads (?), that was confusing and i pretended that it wasn't even there. we ordered burger fries, half and half salad and the much. loved super greasy bread, mmm. after paying we hurriedly sought a seat. they too decided to redo the bar vegas style, as a matter of fact it is totally similar with all the dark wood paneling and less loving. we ended up sitting at the bar because it was closer to beer.
overall- good food, same food, i think prices went up a little though. ambience- eh, newer doesn't necessarily mean better, more smaller tvs like vegas sport book rooms, divider of glassed ship models (whatever), but they did save most of the over shellaced tables, yeah!

tastes like the good ole days.
i swear i do eat well most of the time, i guess the only time i get excited is when its good greasy stuff.
