I Grudginly Enjoy a J-Lo Song

Produced by RedOne and Lady Gaga though.  That makes much more sense now that I know that.  I heard this song on a podcast last week, and I thought "hm.  This robot sounds an awful lot like Jennifer Lopez."  Turns out it was a robot singing over J-Lo.  I haven't really listened to her music since I caved and bought her album J-Lo when I was in China in 2001.  I obsessed over the Spanish songs, but "Walking on Sunshine" was my jaaaaaam, ya'll.  I have heard snippets of her recent couple songs, but I was less than impressed.  This however, is a catchy song that rapes you all the way to the dancefloor.  Give it a listen, and keep in mind that it is J-Lo.  It's good for her.  Manage your expectations.  If you can make it through the whole song without killing yourself, everyone's a winner!

If You Love Food

"Is the foie gras fresh?  Is it delicious?" -Phaedra Parks, Real Housewives of Atlanta
And I know you do.  Half of what Mia and I text each other about is food.  My bestie Sunshine has started his own food blog!  He's kicking it off by reviewing restaurants in the SoMa disctrict of San Francisco.  So the next time I visit him I can just load his site and see what to suggest.  I'm really digging his writing style.  It's got a hint of Gwyneth Paltrow, but without the pretension; so it comes off as genuine, relatable, and expert.  I can't wait for more!

Get Ready for Some Fasting and Praying

Pesach is coming, bitches.  That's Passover to you gentiles.  It's when we celebrate ancient Israelites gaining freedom from the Pharoah and the slaughter of a shit ton of Egyptian babies.  Maybe they had it coming though.  Anywho, here is a quickie version to get yoself learnt:

Textual Intercourse

Amen, indeed, sister

I filled Blanche in on my latest conquest, an Asian gym rat with SEVERE bro-itis. There was an eye-rolling moment that perhaps can wait until you hear it on the podcast (second episode recorded! but it won't contain this breaking news).  So we shared our secret love of gym shorts on a guy and pinky swore never to tell anyone.  Oops. 

Blanche: I am a SUCKER for the gym shorts yo

Me:  Yeah I hate myself for it

Blanche:  If you can't hate yourself a little, how the hell are you gonna blow a frat boy?

Blanche:  Can I get a amen in here?


Blanche:  I used to love campus as a kid. They seemed so grown up.  Now they are chirruns

Me:  I know.  I keep getting older but their hot asses stay the same age

Blanche:  Alright alright alright.
