Merry Christmas (eve)!

I'm getting sick. And it sucks. I had my final day of work at Trader Joe's today. Yes, my final day was filled with stressed out people doing last minute Christmas shopping, cutting in line so that they will get home 3 minutes earlier. Wonderful. And, I was sneezing and coughing all over them and their food. Sorry if any of you readers were one of them. It is a relief yet kind of sad that I'm leaving. The store is awesome and I've gotten along pretty well with the people I work with there. Hopefully I'll be able to keep touch with a few of them so I still know some people in LA once I return to the States.

Anywho, I finished work at noon and now I'm wasting time until I catch a flight to Tucson at 9:45 pm. Thank God there's a World Series of Pop Culture Marathon on VH1.

Speaking of fun, I've had some of that lately. Last week for my bday, Vivian and Erica rolled down to LA to hang out. It was good times. We got seafood burritos and hung out with Eddie Han. It's ridiculous that I haven't hung out with him (he lives 5 minutes away). I forgot how crazy and hilarious he is. I also realized how much I missed hanging out with the old SB crew.

The next day, Fernando, his brother and I made the road trip up to the Bay area to visit with Alvaro and Colleen, whom we will be traveling with in Mexico. We had a blast checking out random/ dive bars in the city. A definite highlight would be the Phone Booth in the Mission District with their pint-sized cocktails, hipster jukebox selection and tatted, runway-walking bartenders. I also got to see Melanie before she took off to NYC. Too bad we weren't ready for cocktail attire, otherwise we could have hung out a little longer.

I got a call from Little Miss Comedy NYC herself as we were about to leave town. This is Tanya of course. Anyways, she had just arrived in SF for the holidays! We got too late of a start to meet her before we left town. Luckily, she was planning a trip to SB during the week. So, I decided to make a mini midweek road trip to meet up with friends for dinner. Of course, that dinner turned into me staying the entire next day and calling in sick to work (i was starting to feel sick, though). I saw so many people in such a short time. It was great just to hang out with people like Viv and Neysa (who I haven't seen in forever). Also just walking around with Clara and her husband is always entertaining.

Alright, enough babbling! I gotta get to the airport!

"Speaking of fun, I've had some of that lately." Ha! Dammit, TraceFace. Can I be you? You're great and it was even greater to see you in Slutta Boobra.
