Journal Entry #133

First, I need to express my anger towards Hulu. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been watching The Bold Type on there… now all of a sudden I go onto the app and see that they are EXPIRING the second season on the 8th of next month. Like, I am only halfway through the first season… if not less, so I know I’ll not be able to finish them on time. I guess I just better stop watching it completely. Sad… because I was really starting to enjoy it. 😦

I watched the season finale of Harlots, too. 😦 Boyfriend and I are still watching Santa Clarita Diet and I watched the first episode of that cartoon mini-series on Netflix called Disenchantment. It was funny but, they are both funny shows so I’m on the lookout for a more serious show to watch when I’m in that kinda mood, you know?

Anyways, let me recap the past few days. Saturday night, we went to this awesome bar that serves our favorite burgers in Las Vegas called Barcode Burger, I have posted about it before if it’s ringing bells for you.


I didn’t have a drink but, boyfriend had a beer called Shock Top? if I heard correctly.


He had their signature burger ^ for his meal, isn’t it beautiful??


Mine had blueberry BBQ sauce and bacon on top. It was also supposed to come with some cheese and that pulled Boston Butt meat on top of the patty but, I had no cheese or butter on the toast, and the Boston Butt on the side instead. 🙂

It was all mighty delicious. Their ketchup is homemade and hands-down the best I’ve ever tasted, too.

On Sunday, I decided to go to work. I’m nervous to even say it because I don’t know if I can do it buuuut: I’m determined to switch my work schedule up. I’ll be working Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with Tuesday and Wednesday off.

Boyfriend worked the morning shift on Sunday, too. He got home a little before 5 PM. We drove to this Mediterranean restaurant called American Gypsy Cafe but, when we got there… we saw a sign that said they were recovering from a fire!! How terrible, right?! Wow. We were disappointed but obviously, understood!

We then decided to just go to a place we had to been to once before called Paymon’s.


Above, is our appetizer, the Dolmas. I’m not really sure what it is… correct me if I’m wrong but, I think it is grape leaves wrapped around ground beef, rice, veggies, and spices? We got these last time we dined here, too. They are yum yum yummy!


I regret my decision of getting The Trio Platter because they drenched the rice and veggies in butter and the beef was just ground beef. 😦 I should have went for the Lamb Platter!!


Boyfriend got Garlic Fries and a Meatball Sandwich with an Orzo Pasta on the side.


He said the meat could have been better and I felt the same way about my dish. Oh well. Next time we want Mediterranean food, I’m gonna see if that Gypsy Cafe is up and running.

After that, we went to Starbucks for our iced espressos and when we got home, I painted my toe nails, smoked a blunt, and did my makeup for work.

Work was actually quite decent. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of customers that showed up and the amount of my co-workers that didn’t. I was annoyed by my first customer. He was one of those “you deserve more than this” “let me save you” type of guys. It was so hard to smile and not roll my eyes at him but, hey, that’s my job!

I left at around 3:30 AM.

On Monday, Boyfriend was scheduled to work but, he gave his shift up to someone who needed it because he wanted to pick his team for fantasy football or whatever LOL.

We woke up early around 10 AM but, then after smoking a blunt, we fell back asleep until 5 PM! We quickly got a grocery list ready, went grocery shopping, came back home, boyfriend cooked, I showered, we ate, went to get espressos at the Boulder Station Casino where it is freaking $4 more than a regular Starbucks!! The stupid one closest to us closes at 8 PM and it was like seriously, 8:05 when we finished eating!!

I got to work at around 11 PM and it was D E S O L A T E, lol. I waited around to make a little profit but, once I did was outta there… I asked boyfriend to come pick me up at around 1:30 AM. 😛

Today, boyfriend woke up earlier than me… I remember peeking at him, asking him what the time was and he said “noon.” When I reeeeally woke up, I asked him again what time it was, and he said two! It didn’t feel like it had been that long since he said it was noon but I forced myself awake because I didn’t want to sleep anymore even though I def could have.

We smoked a blunt while I read The Unlikelies and when the blunt was done, I felt hungry. I knew it was too early to make dinner so I asked boyfriend for a sandwich. He wanted one, too, so he made us both one with a side of Late July Snacks’ Jalapeno Lime Tortilla Chips and we ate in bed together. 🙂 You know… like “breakfast in bed” but “lunch in bed” instead since it was so late in the day!!


I finished reading The Unlikelies and got up to take a shower. When I got out, we decided to come out into the living room. I wrote my review and fave quotes post while boyfriend made dinner. We ate in front of an episode of Big Brother, when it was over, I ended up here… typing this. 😀

Have a great rest of your week, loves!!

  1. That food looks so good! Also, if you’re looking for something more serious to watch, I’m addicted to Riverdale atm – trashy teen drama, love it 😂

    1. Ahh, I tried that show but found the first episode to be such a bore. I have it on my list of “series to re-watch” because I’ve heard sooo many good things about it, I wish I could like it & get into it! Thanks for the recommendation!! ❤

  2. Omg blueberry bbq sauce?! I’ve never heard of that. It sounds really good! Those burgers look delicious. I really wish we had a great burger place where I live, but sadly all we have in that department is fast food and chains (like Five Guys, which I don’t care for). We have a great local chicken place here, now we just need one like it for burgers. 😛

    1. I loved the blueberry BBQ sauce, it was def unique with a perfect amount of sweetness. 🙂 Do you guys have small local bars that serve food? Sometimes those are where the best burgers are!


  3. Burgers looked delish. Dolmas are stuffed grape leaves, they are really good and funny you should mention Shock Top. When I go to a game in Baltimore , that’s one of the beers that I drink. Looking forward to your next restaurant excursion in Vegas.

    1. The burgers at Barcode are just freakin’ awesome!! & ah yes, glad I was right about those dolmas. 😉
      I just read that post about you at the game! Boyfriend also likes Blue Moon, too. 🙂 I should tell him to try that Stella Artois Cider!


  4. That is the worst when they expire a season of something you are into! Hate that. Ok you know I don’t eat meat, but those burgers are making me salivate. YUM!! They look so juicy! Ahhhh I LOVE dolmas!!! They are so yummy. One of my favorite foods ever. Kinda funny because my mom and I were just talking about our love of them this AM. Trader joe’s sells them- but vegetarian version! I’m so excited you like them. I really wish LV had an Oren’s hummus shop.. it’s Israeli food and you would LOVE it. Hope the Gypsy Café needs to reopen soon for ya. I started watching Big Brother- but I don’t have any CBS access anymore. How is this season going? XO

    1. I know!!! How annoying is that?!? WHY do they have to cancel and delete things? Just leave it all & I’ll watch it someday haha!

      YES, MACK! This is the burger place I was telling you about, it’s over fave spot here in Vegas. 😀

      Aww!! I wish we had an Oren’s Hummus Shop, too!! I bet I would love it. 🙂

      The BB season is getting juicy since it’s nearing the end but, I honestly just don’t really like any of the cast and never have from the beginning except for ONE girl who is being plotted against right now so… prob will have no one to root for after she goes.

  5. OMG the burger looked so freaking great, and look how generous they were with the thick cut fries. And they make their own ketchup too!? I’m so jealous, I wish I could have a good ass burger! The Mediterranean food looked SO DELISH, I’m surprised to hear it wasn’t that great afterall!
    Also, I LOVE SANTA CLARITA DIET. It is so funny and the chemistry between Drew and Timothy is just absolutely perfect right!? That’s the couple goals I want! What is Disenchantment like? What kind of humor isit? Like Bob’s burgers?
    And aww, that’s pretty funny that a customer wanted to save you? what is your response to these type of people?

    1. YES, GIRL! That freaking burger joint is the best. Their fries are awesome and their burgers are so juicy!! Their ketchup tastes like tomatoes and not just sugar, so delish!

      Ahh! I’m so excited that you watch Santa Clarita Diet, too! It really is so hilarious!! Drew & Timothy are perfect together, I agree!

      Disenchantment is by the maker of The Simpsons! I only watched one episode so far but, it was pretty good!

      Lol, I HATE those kinds of customers because I don’t understand what they are trying to save me from.

  6. Whoa! A fire?! That’s really unfortunate. Too bad the food at the other place wasn’t as good. I don’t think I’ve had Mediterranean food except for gyros? I’m not a huge fan of the lamb gyros though lol. Anyway, what made you change your schedule up?

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I know!! Fires are so terrifying and damaging. I don’t usually like Lamb Gyros either, the meat is sliced so thin and weird!!
      I’ve gotta start working more because 2-3 days a week is really lazy, I feel like?? I’ve already messed up this week and have stayed home but I did do my 5 days last week. 😛 I’ll try for 4 this week hahah.

      1. idk to me, the marinade tastes a little weird, Alex LOVES it though lol. Maybe it’s some other ingredient they add I don’t know..
        well I can’t even begin to assume how easy or hard your job must be, for me I think I’d be more annoyed by the customers LOL, but that’s just because I’m so anti-social haha but good for you girl, make that money!!

        1. Maybe it is the marinade, too? It tastes weird, I don’t like it either LOL.
          Thanks babe, I skipped work again tonight though. The customers were more than annoying yesterday lol. They can be really nice sometimes though. 😛 I don’t have a social life because the socialness of my job drains me already, you know what I mean?

  7. Good for you being so determined to change up your work schedule! Sometimes a change can make all the difference in the world with motivation and creating a smoother schedule. 🙂 You got this!!
    I’ve never had grape leaves before. I didn’t know they were served as a food, lol!
