Ahhhh! Only ten more days until my big 24th. I still haven’t decided what I want to do and/or when I want to do it. My birthday is on a Saturday which are usually the best nights at work, plus I get free house, so I’ll probably be celebrating on the 12th? Or should I do it the week after? Like on the 17th? I don’t know, I don’t know!
Anyways, I thought I’d take a quick break from my Sims’ life and update my blog about mine, lol.
The last time I published a Journal Entry was Friday night. It seriously feels like so long ago and my memory is certainly a bit foggy right now.
We didn’t go out for a drink and I only had one shot before I left the apartment. Work was pretty slow and lame but, not the worst. Saturday night was LOADS better. We did stop at the bar for a couple cocktails before I went in but, luckily, not too many. 😛 The time went by quickly but, I wasn’t slurring and stupid. I am obviously still working on cutting down my alcohol intake but, slowly, I am getting there… at least, it seems like it… on some days.
When boyfriend picked me up around 4 AM, we went back to the bar and ordered some grub to eat.
Boyfriend got their 12pc Hot Wings. They smelled so delicious and tasted great, too.
I got my favorite Turkey Club on wheat. I couldn’t stop thinking about it the whole night. It was extremely satisfying when I finally got to put it in my belly!!
On Sunday, we went our traditional sushi route but, wanted to try somewhere we hadn’t been before.
Blue Fin had pretty good reviews and wasn’t too far of a drive away.
The interior wasn’t anything special, it could have been any kind of restaurant with the bland looks of it. I didn’t even take a picture!
Lately, boyfriend and I have been ordering more of the appetizers instead of the nigiri and rolls. To start, we had the Tuna Poke Salad. It was fresh and tasty. I loved the jalapenos and the mild, subtle sauce.
Of course, we had to have some Seaweed Salad and Miso Soup (not pictured) but, the salad was a little too wet and the soup was a little too salty…
The Coconut Shrimp tasted stale despite being hot and greasy. I think they need new coconut shavings?
I hate cream cheese so I only had one bite of these Jalapeno Bombs before passing the whole plate to boyfriend.
These 3 sizzling guys came out at the same time. Starting on the left, we had the beef ribeye, the middle was scallops and bacon, and on the right, were baked (unshelled) mussels. I had no idea the seafood was going to be covered in cheese! It was quite disappointing, honestly.
Our last set of appetizers were a deep-fried trio. We had calamari, gyoza, and squid on a stick! All were yum!
Finally, we moved onto rolls. I can’t remember the names or what was in them but, I know there was Blue Fin Tuna on top of the one in the back and Yellowtail on top of the one closest to the camera. I was kind of nervous about the shade of their Yellowtail? It tasted fine but, I’ve never seen it so white, nearly grey before? We did enjoy both rolls.
We also tried the Uni but, both threw it up in a napkin. It was NOT nice. I had tried it only one time before, over rice in NY, and that time– it was awesome. I don’t know if I’ll ever be brave enough to try it again after this.
We didn’t get dessert because we had those Whole Foods macarons waiting for us at home. They ended up being pretty gross. I could only eat more than one bite of the coffee and boyfriend liked the pistachio. The other ones were HUGE misses in flavor but, at least they weren’t stale like I was worried about. Their vegan cookies were pretty good.
For the rest of Sunday night, you can probably already guess that I got whisked away into my Sims game again. 😛
I’d rather not talk about Monday but, I guess we will go over it for a second. I had one of those annoying days where I do all the actions and chores of getting ready for work but, when the time comes, I back out.
We went to Cafe Zupas for dinner and had cocktails at the bar. I could’ve been there at a decent time but, I couldn’t seem to force myself to go. Boyfriend just brought me back home and we both played the Sims for the rest of the night.
Yesterday, it was finally time for another musical!! Last month, there were none showing and it made the 31 days seem so empty.
The previous two shows I went to were a bit lackluster and dull… I was actually more nervous than excited to see Fiddler on the Roof because of them.
Ohhhh was I so very wrong to worry! This show was outstanding! Though, at the end of it, I was still lost about what the heck the Fiddler on the Roof represented. I did look it up and I do understand the metaphor but, I wish he spoke or something to explain to us more while we were watching.
My favorite part of the whole production was the scenery and props. They changed everything up so much and all of their backdrops were just beautiful, so detailed and lovely.
For me, none of the songs or voices stuck out. They were all good and entertaining but, didn’t hit or move me in any way. I especially had a hard time understanding Tevye (played by Yehezkel Lazarov) when he sang because he was doing this super thick accent. Also, there was tons more dancing than singing. The dancers were extremely talented and super fun to watch. For the first time, I actually didn’t wish for them to get on with it like I usually do during dance scenes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen more on point, on beat choreography before– they were all just PHENOMENONAL! I will admit I let a few tear drops during the duet “Do You Love Me?” More because of the meaning and story behind it than the actual song though.
As for the cast members, they were all equally talented in every aspect. No one acted or sang better than any of the others. Usually, I can single somebody out as the best but, this time, I had no one.
The ending was a bit abrupt for my taste and I was left semi-confused. After I did my research, I was more satisfied. Going in, I had no idea what this show was about but, I left, with a smile, learning a lot more than expected. Fiddler on the Roof has reignited my Broadway lovin’ heart. I cannot wait for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on the 18th. I guess we get two since they skipped May. It will be the last show of the season and my new tickets for next season arrive in July! 😀
I forgot to mention that we had Chipotle and Dunkin’ Donuts before boyfriend dropped me off at The Smith Center.
I didn’t take pictures at our drinks at Dunkin’ but, I just got a hot coffee with 4 shots of espresso in it and boyfriend used his T-Mobile Tuesdays coupon for a free Med. Iced Vanilla Latte with 4 shots. The workers there had such an attitude, it was ridic.
When the show ended and boyfriend picked me up, we just headed straight home and I opened up the Sims right away. 😀
Today, we went to Albertsons for a rotisserie chicken. Boyfriend made my dad’s fish sauce for dipping and a side salad. We ate the whole dang thing! I swear the chickens used to be way bigger and fatter back in the day. My whole family used to not even be able to finish one!
I hopped onto WordPress and checked my notifications right when we finished eating then, I started writing this. It has taken me about 2 hours but, I did take a small break in the middle. 😛 I gotta make my June Journal Entry Featured Image then, hello Simmies, here I come!!
Hope you all have a great rest of your week!!! ❤
