okay.. so marc planned a disneyland trip today (well last night at marisa's bbq he asked if we had plans tom). i wake up super early waiting for marc's call. it's 11:30am and no one has called. weird. it would take at least an hour to round the whole gang up. I call marisa for the info and she hadn't received a call from anyone. i asked her to contact marc. apparently, he was tired because he had been up doing errands, steve wanted to stay home and watch the oscars. (update: steve said he would go but marc kind of blamed the whole not wanting to go on steve!). we knew it! steve would go even if he didn't want to or even if he was sick. well marc also told steve taht i wouldn't be going because my pass expired (i told him i was renewing it). so.. me and marisa were badmouthing marc that he was a whiney baby for about an hour when i told marisa i was hungry and my plans that morning were to go to lee's for sandwiches and iced coffee and then go to disneyland. marisa said taht we could still go to lees... i said i would rather have viva madrid. i love love spanish food and viva madrid has the biggest and best paella! marisa ordered some sort of wine and 7up concoction (it was pretty good). i had sangria which made me feel drunk (and the glasses are tiny!). i wanted to make so many drunk dials but thank goodness the restuarant had no reception. for appetizers we ordered calimari (we can't get enough) and this toast with tomato spread (so delish). i wanted to rush home and try to make that myself. it was fantastic.
if you do ever end up going to viva madrid order the sangria and make sure to have some appetizers.. paella takes a long time. maybe a thirty minute wait? but well worth it. marisa had some sort of garlic dish which was pretty salty. my paella was a little bit too salty for my taste (andre would of loved it here. he would put salt on salt). but overall a good dinner. more badmouthing marc. haha. this picture you can see my paella and marisa taking abite out of her huge shrimp, garlic, rice dish.
i posted a bulletin on myspace also for a good paella restuarant in los angeles.. colleen told me that el cid is good and also has flamenco dancing! phil says there is a place in philly and matty gave me directions to a place but no name. he owes me a lunch or dinner so maybe he'll take me there..
this is why my dress size expanded about two sizes huh?
creme brulee.. i love it! my photographing skills aren't very good but it was so delish! they torch it right in front of you and there is enough to share.
im on an important call with marisa so update this later. yeni, marisa says hi.
my important call was with marisa again badmouthing marc. haha.
so marisa's bbq was a success. the food was yummy. marisa was a bit upset that had to leave (but he has previous plans and still stayed from like 4-9ish!). not like marc who showed up past 8pm and left at 10pm. but wahtevers. party poopers should leave. i was sitting next to gracie and she was tapping her feet like crazy from boredom.. i dunno why she even comes if she doesn't want to. she should just hang out with her own girlfriends or her sisters...
i am soo glad i am drama free.
postscript: does anyone know of any good spanish restuarants in la?
