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
A man like me, so irresponsible
A man like me is dead in places
Other men feel liberated

I can't love, shot full of holes
Don't feel nothing, I just feel cold
Don't feel nothing, just old scars
Toughening up around my heart

But I want love, just a different kind
I want love, won't break me down
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in
I want a love, that don't mean a thing
That's the love I want, I want love

I want love on my own terms
After everything I've ever learned
Me, I carry too much baggage
Oh man I've seen so much traffic

So bring it on, I've been bruised
Don't give me love that's clean and smooth
I'm ready for the rougher stuff
No sweet romance, I've had enough

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...
