Time for another obsessions round up. Here’s what I am currently loving:
– Dinner at Della Terra. I attended a birthday dinner for my friend Jane last Tuesday (I have gotten to know Jane over the years, through Aviva. Love Jane’s spunky sense of humor. Example: She once encountered some guy at a bar who ordered a rum and coke — or something like that — and ordered the bartender to “go heavy on the f***ing YOLO.” So now I say that all the time to Jane. I hope she did such on her birthday). Anyway, the gnocchi was great but the portion was tiny, but some of my girls hooked me up and let me sample their entrees. One them had braised pork belly in it and that was the bomb.com. The chardonnay I ordered — Russian River, 2011 — was soooo buttery, I fell in love.
– Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Rivals 2. I have a lot of weird obsessions, but MTV Reality TV shows top the list. I have been watching Real World religiously since the Hawaii season (Season 8). This aired in 1999. I was in 5th grade. I have watched every season since (we just wrapped season 28 – Portland). Wow. That’s sorta sad when I write it out, but whatever. Beyond the RW seasons though — and the real reason to watch — is for the Challenge seasons. Rivals 2 did NOT disappoint. My favs Emily and Paula took home the W for the girls. My favorite male team (Jordan and Marlon) came in third, and while I think they could have won had Marlon’s swimming been a little better, it was time for a Wes and CT win. Do any of you watch this?
– Love all of the following songs:
I have become obsessed with my Garmin Forerunner 10. It is SO light I forget I am wearing a GPS watch. And it might be calibrated wrong because I have not been hating my splits either.
And last, but certainly not least, I love it when Yasiel Puig dresses up as Gumby and runs around San Francisco hotels taking pictures — including this one with Vin Scully.
Hit me with your current obsessions.
