On Voice of Affection...
I tell you what...today it's only about 95 degrees but the past few weeks have been 105 degrees and up...It's been something else. Last Monday Julian and I decided to grab some lunch and games at Dave & Busters.
He had the Teriyaki Sirloin Steak and I had a Chicken Parmesan Caesar Salad. He drank a Long Island to my Plain Tea. Then we proceeded to beat House of the Dead IV (40 bucks later haha)...When we stepped out into the outdoor mall (Tempe Marketplace)...it looked like a tropical misty strange place.
(Yeah Grimey...even when he's not at a show he rocks your shirt!)
Really we just wanted to walk off our big lunch and sore trigger fingers.
But Kibby found a dope fitted hat:
and I found my favourite! HELLO Kitty...in a tank hoodie!
All these consecutive hot days plus long days of work and interviews and appointments have been a little taxing. We do have a house and social lives to maintain so it's been a real labor of love to get everything done. But we've done it and done it well.
The other day I got home and Julian was puttering around the house and about to take out the garbage and I said Hi Hunny! He said Hello...I know my Bebe loves me. I started laughin' and asked,"Where'd that come from?" He said because I know you do - because you don't just say it - you LIVE it."
That's good shit...to have acknowledgement that Love is not only a destiny or a blessing but also something living and thriving. It is something you must take care of and strengthen. It's little things like that that make the nonsense of day to day chores okay.
We are going to Vegas with City Momma at the beginning of next month for Julian's cousins wedding! How exciting to see our City Momma again - it will be a weekend of enjoying the love and laughter and company of family.
We have pushed our one month vacation in December to February because the end of year is a real busy and profitable month for the both of us...So we will see 4 Asian countries around Valentines! uh Fabulous.
We must decide where to take a 4 day weekend out of the desert soon...We don't know where - but somewhere with great cafe's (for me) and great golf (for him)...I'll prolly just suggest a trip "home" to Calie...but in the fall My cousin Christian will be getting married so maybe we'll flip it into a double holiday!
I love vacation. The whole process...packing, going, travelling...listening to things you've never heard before, trying local cuisine and just moving your feet along the pavement to the rhythmn of people. It's the journey...always the journey.
Meanwhile...the cakes still get made.
The more I long for vacation the more whimsical these little jokers get!
Once in awhile my friends, family and/or boyfriend convince me that going out is a good idea...and once I'm there I quickly realize that being in a noisy, hot, thumping room is a nice spot to let your daily stress to fall off...
Last night we caught the fireworks and then headed to a spot that is co-owned by Julian's friend...Of course this was after I put in a good day's work, prepped the barbecue for today, tidied up the house, made dinner and then got ready - hahahha - so a full life is always filled.
Julian and Jereme went ahead...
Keyla and Xtina pulled up the rear with me and we fought traffic in the area surrounding Mill Ave because all the fireworks spectators were leaving.
Yeah you know we clown people present and not present
And even in hot humid crowded venues - he still makes me smile!
You know what happens when you are given 2 for 1's ALL night!
All I know is everyone in our party was gettin' steadily drunkey...
A few of Julians friends hung out...some strange man took off his shirt. Another dude took off his shirt to show off his tattoo's and I didn't have the heart to tell him that the lines were all shakey and bad. One girls boobs popped out of her tank only to reveal that she was not only wearing pasties but also wearing padded pasties and her tank hung sadly around her waist like a belt. Yet another girl was doing full thrust air humps off tempo on the dancefloor by herself. And this was just the start of the night.
Julian gave Chad a call and then he showed up with the usual posse including his girlfriend Mika & Duke Nuke'em. See Chad below giving his Mika the "sexy" dance - hahahhaa
Go ahead keep those beers comin'
Keyla and Mika
Me and Mika...Let me say this. I really enjoyed Mika' company because she has sass without snottiness. She has a natural grace without anything put on. It is a relief to be with a cool guy with cool friends coz it usually means they date cool chicks. I look forward to hanging out with her sometime. Let me also say this. Mika told on Julian: She told me that whenever I am not around he pops his phone open and says this is my girlfriend...she is a chef and she is wonderful and funny and a bit nuts and I love her and oh look at this other picture. Bwaa hahahaha. She told me that it was absolutely wonderful to see and that I have a good man on my heart! Awwww.
Slim on the scene again. Let me tell you I haven't seen this cat since Cinco de Mayo 2007 and first thing he says is,"When you two gettin MARRIED!!!" Hahahahha...I laughed and said ask Mr. Man. Kibby laughed and kissed my cheek and said,"I am working on getting her a ring that she deserves..." He paused and added with a laugh,"a BiiiiiG one man!" Slim laughed and said good good...I can't wait for the wedding."
Oh you two think you're funny HUH
And you two KNOW you are cute...when they are together they are smiling of course but when they are apart they cannot STOP talking about each other...This is the blessing of a proper fit!
And right when it got good - it was time to go home. Of course we were invited to stay for the afterparty but the boys had to be to work at 8 this morning.
Addendum: I just have to say that the boys makin' up a rap called "fart in your face" had to be the single most funny thing ever with Christina makin' that rap video girl face with a fart in your face motion!
Good times - good times!
We have just finished off all the korean barbecue (beef & pork), korean cucumber salad, roasted potato salad, roasted veggies, creole rice and louisiana prawns with crusty french bread & the sweetest corn on the cob ever.
Everyone is in the pool or around the pool drinkin' green apple spumante's and beer, some of the boys are taking a nap and I've already dropped off food to Julian's work because he will be working until 10pm.
I just pulled the chocolate cupcakes out of the stove and made coffee.
Overall...it's been a great 48 hours.
Well party people...I am currently on my 3rd upgrade for my digi cam and guess what I still don't know how to use it. hahahha.
But here is a peek at the latest:
...somethin' for you and 11 of your friends...
...somethin' chocolate chip...
...somethin peanut butter hazelnut...
...something kiwi passionfruit...
...somethin' for a little mermaid named Alyssa - aka dj Konradio's little bebe...
That's it for now - I'm getting more friendly with my new cam and they you all are gonna be in trouble - Bwaa hahha...
Rubbins,Grubbins & Lubbins...these are the three things you can enjoy in life.
Last week our brother took my sister and I for a 3 hour massage. Ahhh fabulous! I could do that every week with no problem. Seriously! The first girl was on the snotty side and even though her massage skills could be rated ebonically as "Aiight" she acted like she was hot shit. Hahaha. She gave me a deep tissue massage. The second masseuse was a man. A brother with strong hands who actually well past the 50 minutes and someone came in to tell him he was past his time - haha. (Julian later commented that he din't know if he like that type of shit - hella haha). He gave me a reflexology massage focusing on my shoulders, feet and hands. The third masseuse was also a man and gave me a hand, upper body and cranial massage. UH - Men massages are way better than women massages coz they got muscle. But that might be for those of us who like it a little stronger on the massage table. Needless to say I passed out twice and looked well rested.
However, I should not and am not complaining about a lack of massage in my life - because Julian always laughingly says to me,"Rubbins?" after a hard day. So I get a massage 4-6 times a week...
The Asian ladies have got the idea right to get facials and massages regularly - not only does it maintain your natural good looks but it also improves your demeanor which helps makes you "better looking..."
Hahahha I'm the winner.
After a 3 hour massage my sister Keyla then treated us to Bobby Q...My favourite Barbecue joint in town...St. Louis Style Ribs, Baby Back Ribs, and a double order of Brisket - UH Deliscious...I tell you I eat without shame when it's barbecue - there is no sexy around the barbecue sauce.
A few days later Julian and I both had the day off. After a phone interview we met my sister and some friends at MuShu Asian Bistro Downtown!
As always it's nice to catch up with the girls...
And there's always room for Walnut Shrimp and Honey Ginger Chicken
Even when it's 110 degrees outside - hahahhaa
After lunch downtown Julian and I went to catch Get Smart - I should have followed my instinct to watch Mongol at Camelback view but it's the company that counts. I must say my boyfriend is extraordinarily affectionate and hilarious - it's a strange combination but I can't help but crack up with some of the crazy shit he comes up with. So he's got jokes and I've got jokes.
Lubbins in all it's forms...random calls and letters...gifts and a helping hand...someone to cheer you on when you are about to make radical changes...someone to encourage you when life is mundane but has little details to attend to...someone just to be near and dear but cool and easy...god love, family love, friend love, food love, art love, work love.
Love Unexpressed...but always felt.
