A month or so ago (e:businesscheese)'s 'rents came into town. Like everything else in my life it turned into a competition into who could win their affections. Papa (e:businesscheese) hearts 3 things: Cap'n Crunch, Coca Cola and Shrimp. I combined 2 of his loves into one delicious appetizer. Needless to say they were a hit.

First you take fresh whole jumbo shrimp. Peel and de-vein.

Dip in seasoned flour then egg.

And most importantly the Cap'n Cruch. I love how it's Cap'n Crunch and not Captain Crunch.


I don't have any pictures of the finished product, but they were delicious.

In Feb when Momma Ho and I went to visit le bebe we stayed at Salvatores. It was amazingly tacky. It was pretty much like staying at your Italian Grandmothers House if it was decorated for Easter.

It's good to be back

After the world's most dramatic vacation (I blame PMS for my insanity) I'm back in the city. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about this as I kinda just wanted to go somewhere and forget about life period.

Turns out being back is not so bad. When I arrived at work everyone was actually happy to see me. It's a nice feeling. And despite having a shit load of work, I'm not hating work at all.

And the icing on the cake: Saks is having a huge sale. I went and bought some lip balm, various face creams (I'm such a sucker for that junk) and (drum roll) Marc Jacobs sunglasses.

Basically I'm going to use work and retail therapy to drown my sorrows. As of day one it's working.

Convo with lilho

Me: I am not dramatic.

Sarah: OMG you are so dramatic.

Me: Um. No.

Sarah: You take it to the next level. You have drama and then you instill fear into the general public.

Me: Oh. I can't argue that.

Easter Basket '09

Me: So am I getting a Easter Basket?

Mom: No Jessica you're not. What would I even put in one for you?

Me: A baby chicken, jelly beans, candy, Easter surprises.

Mom: I don't even know what a Easter surprise is.

Me: Buuuuut my heart wants one.

Mom: Fine. Go take a shower we're going to the store.

Moral of the story: If you say your heart wants it to your Mom you get what you want.

Worst Vaca Eva

My strep throat is in full force. My neck actually hurts from my tonsils being so swollen.

I feel bad because my mom was so excited to have me here.

Honestly if I was well enough I'd just get on a plane and go back to NYC and hit the reset button.

Conversations with Momma Ho

re: the volcano that erupted in Alaska

Momma: He said it looked like snow in NYC.

Me: Ew, that's so rude to diss NYC like that. You know when it snows here it's actually white until it hits the ground. (said with attitude)

Momma: Jessica he's from NYC. When you're from New York you can say anything you want and it's not rude.

Me: Oh. Yeah. Actually thats right.

Party Prep

(e:lilho) getting ready. (e:hodown) already ready (I take 75% less time to get ready). Snaggle tooth included. Soundtrack to this lovely scene:

NWA "Just Don't bite it". (e:Paul) and I were trying to teach (e:lilho) a lesson. We also showed her the Rodger Rabbit dance. She'd never seen it before. Are we that old?
