Got home in time to see Iron Chef on Food Network It's so goddamn cheesy with the English voice-overs, especially since I used to watch that show on the Japanese station like 5 years ago, even if I didn't know what the fuck they were saying. I think it's just so damn cool that they can get so creative like making tiramisu out of mushrooms or making a 5 course meal with the underlying ingredient being something as obscure as octopus... oh well, that's just me being weird again.
Saw the new Elton John video with Robert Downey Jr. in it. For some reason, I was totally compelled by it. Maybe it's just me, but if you ever catch it, listen to the words of the song, and look at his face. It seems to me as if he was the one actually singing the words almost as a plea for help or something-- sorta like the song was written for him in a way. He's been through so much media scrutiny, it's not hard to feel bad for the guy...
Maybe the song hit me because the lyrics reflect the way I've been feeling lately...
I want love, but it's impossible
So Ramon isn't going with us anymore, and neither is Gabi... that leaves 7 people, which is cool because now we don't have to spend hella extra money to get an SUV or a family van... so Larry reserved a normal sized minivan for us. As long as Francisca doesn't flake, we're all good...
