Yes, I like food collages.

In other news, the DVR was terrible. This morning we had 3 hours free (plus extras from other days that it made us get rid of), and the third hour it said would be there for 3 days. Yet, in order to tape the Ugly Betty finale at the same time as SYTYCD, it made us delete even more time! I was hoping to watch the Mentalist again but guess that won't happen. And then we had to delete an episode of Fringe we didn't even see yet! Argh. What happened to the 3 days it supposedly had?
I am thrilled that Kris won and shocked that I have now gone 3 for 3
in this spring's reality show finales. I would have been totally fine
with Adam winning since he's incredibly talented, but it's just not
always my style of music. And I vote based on which cd I'd buy.
I was so shocked though as I figured it was a given that Adam would
win. Simon was clearly not happy. Is it so hard to fake it and stand
up with everyone else?
I hope they clean up the coronation song before it gets recorded.
Favorite dessert (although I guess we didn't get that many desserts because we were full) was clearly Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies. Last year, they had their truck parked outside Delta Grill, and when we didn't see the truck from down the block this year, we were worried they didn't come! No reason for alarm, instead they just dropped off a cute little trailer with the pies. Yum, key lime pie. One of A's favorites. And this one is a really good version. I'm not sure how it compares with Lahaina Grill's Iao Valley Lime Tart (one of my most favorite desserts ever) but it's definitely good.
So that's the quick summary of the food fair! We tried a lot - spanakopita, crab cake sandwich, key lime pie, pierogies, pupusas (need to go back to Red Hook, I want huaraches!), lemonade, hummus, and pineapple fried rice. I finished it off during Survivor with some pico de gallo/salsa from Chipotle since the only problem with street fair food is that it makes me want fresh vegetables! I wonder who will be at the fair next year.
There were some really memorable stories from the wedding: the groomsman who didn't want to toast A during the table toasting because A didn't have alcohol in his glass at the time and you could only toast with alcohol, the friends who went through 4 bottles and 1 handle of Johnnie Walker Black Label and kept doing shots even though people were passing out, playing with my really cute little cousin (1.5 years old) who was fascinated by video games, and many more!
Now if only it weren't 2:20 am with work in the morning...
Not a LOT, but there's some big things there like the dress and the rings (which we picked out today). Considering how long I put off searching for a dress, I'm so glad to move ordering that to the done list. And I'm surprising myself with how much more I like looking at and thinking about dresses now that I have one picked out. :) Hmm, what to do next...
