Me Talk Pretty One day

If you've never read anything by David Sedaris, I suggest you go do so immediately. He's hilarious! He's called a "humorist," which I guess is the comedic stand-up equivalent of a writer (?), but whatever the title, dude is mother effing funny.

I've read a bunch of his books:

He's going to be at Jones Hall downtown tonight, reading some of his new stuff. Saul bought tickets for my birthday, so we're headed out after work.

I've never been to a reading before, but in my mind it's similar to story-time in kindergarten, which I totally dug, but with wine. Yay!

In other news, yes, yes - my birthday is just 11 days away. April 30th, baby! I can't believe I've forgotten to mention that before now. It's been a crazy month.

Happy Tuesday!

Huggin and a kissin, dancin and a lovin, wearin next to nothinn, cause it's hot as an oven!

The Houston suburbs are so, well...suburby, it's hard to find unique places to eat outside of the downtown area, so when we hear about one, we GO. Fast.

Although it's about 45 minutes from us, the drive was well worth it - the Love Shack is AWESOME. It's super tiny inside, but has a huge outdoor patio and a beer garden which are both really pretty and full of trees and strands of lights. The menu is small, but it's so nuts that the 15 or so items on it more than make up for it's slight size.

Sign says "stay away fools!" Cause love rules at the Love Shack

The burgers are the stars, and oh my god, mine was the best burger I have EVER had.

The 5 Napkin Burger...pure eggstacy...(heh)

Saul's burger was called "The Grease and Weasel" and instead of burger buns, there were honey buns anchoring each end of the meat. And by honey buns, I mean the kind you find in a pastry shop. THEY WERE GLAZED. Heart attack on a plate, right there. His head almost exploded, he was so filled with glee*.

Sit here and wait for inevitable food coma.

Go to the Love Shack! Seriously, it was incredible. I can't wait to go back and hang out with a cold beer and listen to some local live music.

Bring it, Summer.

It's Friiiiiday!!! Fun weekend plans?

*When does Glee come back? I am going through major withdrawals. Fo real.

Weekend adventures

Because apparently I'm 5, all I've wanted to do for the last few weeks is take a Saturday and go to the damn zoo. I honestly don't know what sparked this little flame deep within, but seriously y'all - I have been straight up pouting little kid-style when something has happened to F up my zoo day plans!

Finally, last Saturday, we made it downtown and I got my lion/rhino/motherf'ing HUGE longhorn fix.

And it was glorious.

Some photos, for your vicarious zoo day enjoyment...


I like turtles.

These suckers smelled like fish...it was pretty gross.

Most hilarious moment of the day...everyone who walked by thought homeboy wasn't just napping, but straight up dead. It wasn't until we all watched his tiny chest rise and fall, that people started cracking up and the "must've been a long night!" jokes started flying.
I thought he looked quite like Saul when he passes out at home...

This rhino was on crack. Dude was racing around his little area, messing with the giant antelope things that were unfortunate enough to be cohabiting. It was awesome, and I got some video, but apparently when taking video on an iPhone, one must turn the camera sideways to get it to arrange itself correctly in iMovie...? Watching the video with a tilted head is not fun.

Grubbin' on cherry tomatoes.


Baby giraffe!!! I wish I had gotten a good picture of this guy standing next to another giraffe because it is really impossible to express just how small and fragile he looked compared to the others. Adorable.

Another baby animal. Oh my god, I about died. I literally squealed, "a baby elephaaaant!!!" when we got to them. I was embarrassed for 2.5 seconds and then got over myself and seriously could have sat in front of this little guy all day long, watching him, and been totally happy. Baby animals kill me. I want to take them all home.

The only disappointment that day was realizing the Houston zoo doesn't have penguins. Really, Houston? Really? What kind of a zoo doesn't have penguins?!? Grumble.

If you live in Houston and haven't been to the zoo, I totally recommend it. It was really pretty and the animals were awesome and, other than the parking which is seriously insane (I mean like, worse than the Galleria at Christmas...no joke), it was a great way to spend a few hours on a Saturday afternoon.

Also, Herman Park? Gorg. Why do we not go down there more often??

Happy Thursday, all!
