I made me some vegetarian pizza today. It was awesome.

Ray got his usual sausage and mushroom with extra cheese.

And then we spent our night at the Alamo Drafthouse where we watched Lost, the best show ever.

Dallas here we come again. I don’t remember exactly why we drove up this time but it was a busy trip. First we met Steven at Ten on Main Street. Frank a.k.a D.J. Love was that night and I finally got to see him in action. Check it out.

The next day we met everyone at La Cubanita.

Me and pops.

My order and it was so good.

Mable was in town, yay! Wow, they totally already look like a family.

After brunch we headed to Dallas Black Dance Theatre where Nycole teaches dance.

We got the V.I.P tour of the place and even got the see her students perform an African dance for us. Check it.

Then a bunch of us went to the mall with where we met Bernh and her family for movie time fun.

For dinner we went to Benihana or was it Kobe steak house?

The next day we ate at some well known burger joint.

But the best part of our trip was going to Sprinkles. Can you believe I never heard about this place until today?

It was amazing.

And later we went out for Vietnamese, another one of my favorites.

The next morning we took pops out to Cafe Brazil.

Ray’s food.

My food. What can I say, I like salads.

Lost @ the Alamo Drafthouse

I’m pretty sure Ray and I found our new Wednesday hot spot at the Village Alamo Drafthouse. Every Wednesday at around 9:30 or 10:00 they play two episodes of Lost, an episode from the prior week and one from the current week. It works out great because last week Ray and I were an episode behind and by the time we left the Alamo Drafthouse we were not only all caught up but we got to watch two spanking hot episodes in a row on the big screen, without commercials and while eating food and delicious dessert. It works out too if your not behind because Lost gets to be so confusing that it helps to watch the prior week even if you had already seen it. Now if your not a Lost junkie like we are then you mine as well skip this post and move on to the next one, no offense but you just wouldn’t understand. Now if your all confused and just can’t seem to get a grasp on it check out this site I found a while back. It totally cleared a few things up for me.

If your thinking about coming better come early, or get your tickets online because they sell out every show. The reason why Ray and I were behind last week was because we were denyed entry the week before because they had sold out.

Now that 2009 is here I want to take some time to reflect on 2008. I always knew 2008 was going to be a good year. I remember looking forward to it because it was 08 and 8 is just a good fucking number. It was only a year ago Ray and I were living the good o life in the rainbow state, Honolulu Hawaii.

It was almost a year ago that I started my first post on this blog, January 9th 2008. Since then I’ve written 121 post. I don’t really know who’s all reading it, but it sure has made my hand written journaling take back seat.

I cut my hair super short for the first time ever. It was kinda cute wasn’t it?

Ray got a new iPhone.

Ray and I ran in The Annual Great Aloha Run, just a little over 8 miles, and we all know eight is a good number to start with.

We voted for our first time for the Democratic Party. But just for the record, once Hillary was out of the election Ray and I voted again for our first time for President for Obama of course.

Ray bought me my first brand new computer. Mac 4 life baby!

MyBabyOurBaby Launched.

We finally found the dock where Lost, our favorite television series, was filmed at. We searched the island for it forever.

We went camping at Melekahana, our first time camping in Hawaii and Ray’s first time ever. He’s not a fan.

Rocked out at the Kokua Festival, a festival Jack Johnson puts on every year in Hawaii., my blog had become a major hit and one of Hawaii’s most popular food blog websites.

I called some lady a cunt on my last day of work, because she was.

We got to swim with dolphins.

We moved back to the main land, California first.

Ray got to meet some of my extended family.

Tried wake boarding for the first time.

Got to ride dirk bikes again.

Moved to Austin

Where we met the Semmlers, Shane’s older brother and his family and now mine.

Kidnapped Kuya Ben’s dogs.

Found the Agave Homes and fell in love.

Ray introduced me to Marcos. He works for NASA.

Went to our first roller derby.

Spent Bachelorette week in Florida with my best bud Jack Mother Fucking Dogg with a double G.

Got married, 080808.

Got my first tattoo with my old crew from V-Town.

Traveled to New York, but just for a couple of months.

I stopped eating meat.

Met Guav Mom and the Roses and I have to tell you I’m a fan. Hope we get to see them again soon.

I got to freelanced at Jimmy Z’s, thanks to Bea.

We got to be extras in Friday Night Lights.

I almost died from pneumonia.

I met the Semmler’s, the rest of Shane’s family, and now mine as well and went to my first professional basketball game. Go Mavericks!

As you can see I love recording my life and 2008 was a year worth recording. There was a lot of cherry popping going on and I got to meet a lot of people that will be in my life for the long haul. We also moved around a lot, Hawaii, California, Austin, New York, Dallas. Things are just never boring with us. I’m looking forward to a healthy, happy and prosperous year for 2009. I know great things are to come.

Just so all of you know I’m obsessed with the show Lost. I’ve been a dye hard fan since the first episode. I really don’t know how I even begin watching it since when it first started I was living alone in Vacaville at the time and wasn’t really into watching television. Anyhow, soon I met Ray and got him into it. Since then he’s been hooked and when we moved to Hawaii we got Shane hooked on it. I requested every Thursday off just so I could stay home and watch the freaking show. Once I was scheduled to work when the season finale was scheduled to play so I called in sick, said I had direrrah, just so I could watch. The thing is I never call in sick, even when I am sick. Our friends Sara and Justin are crazy into Lost as well. They moved to New York, but before they moved they would come over and we turned it into a drinking game. Every time something would happen, like when Hugo says, “dude,” or when Desmond says, “brother” we had to take a drink. By the end of the show we’re all piss ass drunk. It’s so awesome. Anyhow, one great thing about living in Hawaii is that the show is filmed here. For a while I was determined to be an extra on the show. I obviously wasn’t that determined because it hasn’t happened yet.

Within the first month of moving to Hawaii we ran into Sayid. That’s his screen name and unfortunately I don’t know his real name, but when I saw him that’s what I referred to him by. I told him I was a huge fan and introduced myself. He was way cool and introduced himself and was even willing to take a photo with yours truly. It totally made my day.

Anyhow, Ray and I are super spontaneous. Some days we end up driving around the island even before we realize were taking a trip around the island. When we first moved here we were super crazy stocker fans and would drive around the island looking for places, and landmarks where Lost had been filmed. This dock is major because it’s the scene where they let Michele and his son Walt go in exchange for Jack, Kate and Sawyer. If you watch Lost then you know what I’m talking about. Anyhow, we’ve been trying to get to this dock for so long now. We have always knew where it was, but as far as exactly what street to drive down, we could only guess, and even then, it was private property. Not too long ago while on one of our spontaneous drives I manage to talk Ray into flipping a bitch and turning down the hidden street to what we think will lead us to this dock. We drive down this private, local, scary, bumpy, road. I mean, there were cages for cock fighting, you know that kind of street. Anyhow, at the very end we come to this house and in the back yard is this dock. I had to walk it, but it was obviously private property. Soon some mean looking local comes out and says, “this is private property.” I don’t want to go all into our conversation, but I manage to convince him to let us walk back there.

Isn’t that freaking awesome. We were stoked. It was a little awkward since there were people fishing out there while we cruised up and were totally tourist and start snapping away with our cameras and iphone, but still totally worth it.

After that we kept driving and about an hour later we drive up to the Lost Bunkers. This is filmed a lot during the show. It’s where the Others use to live and where Lock and his followers are staying now on the show. We found this place a long time ago, but since we were on such a Lost kick this day we decided to stop and actually check it out.

I love it.

Again, we found this earlier on but we believe with 100% certainty that this is part of the plane from Lost when it crashed and some crazy monster kills the pilot just before he’s about to reveal to Jack and Kate that they are lost and no one knows exactly where they are or their coordinates.

Once Shane called us while he was working in Kailua. We met him at Muddy Waters Cafe and who do we see, Jack, or Mathew Fox. Of course I walk up to him with camera in hand and ask if he would take a picture with me. Again, I refer to him as his screen name, Jack, instead of his real name Mathew Fox, but I didn’t know his real name then. He turns out to be a total dick and says no. I admit I should of confronted him less abruptly, but that’s still no excuse to refuse to take a picture with such a dedicated fan. I could understand if there were a lot of people in the cafe and it would draw up a lot of commotion and unnecessary attention, but we were the only ones there. He just replies, “uh, no, I’m actually on my way out.” It totally ruined my day and now I forever hate him. What a total douche bag.

When Jackie Chans restaurant was still around they would have Lost nights where everyone would come just to watch Lost and then at the end everyone we would play games and was able to win prizes. Our friends you see here, Justin and Sara won so much shit because like I said they’re huge Lost fans too and knew everything about the show.

It was good times. I didn’t realize until Shane started watching that they are super detailed oriented. Every time someone is reading a book or a picture on the wall or music in the background is a hint or clue, which makes the show even more cool. Anyhow, just wanted all of you to know that I am one of those crazy fans; like those crazy star trek fans, I’m like that, only for Lost and not as weird.
