DUIs, Meltdowns...What's New?

I am at a loss today - all the mundane details of my life I think are kind of boring compared to the Lindsay Lohan alcoholic antics (Drunky - are you reading this??) and Britney's continued downward spiral. Ah, it's the summer of DUIs and meltdowns.

And when OK! magazine hit stands tomorrow with this interview, you know I am SO there to get my copy.

Everyone has their vices - Drunky and Lindsay have booze, I have clothes and gossip. It's all the same in the end I guess, except shopping in public isn't illegal.

Thai-ed Up at the Moment

I really don't have anything new for you all today. But since Sunday I was craving Thai food and tried to go to Regent on 18th st with Margo only to find it was closed for lunch. [ Sean and I ate at there once- it was VERY good. And to think I avoided it because Drunky McDrunkerson said he liked it and therefore the food was likely horrible; like that Creme place on U St he loved that sucked ass ]. So I've been craving a certain Thai dish since then and decided to open up the spellbooks, I mean cookbooks, and try making it at home.

Thai Chili-Basil Chicken

• 4 garlic cloves
• 1 large red chili
• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
• 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
• 2 skinless chicken breasts, sliced
• 2 tablespoons fish sauce
• 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 2 large red chillies, cut lengthways, seeds removed, extra
• 1/2 cup Asian basil leaves, or regular basil

Serve With:
steamed jasmine rice

Roughly chop the garlic and chili. Place in a mortar and pestle with the salt and pound into a paste. If you don't have a mortar and pestle, place the garlic and chili on a chopping board, sprinkle with salt and finely mince with a knife, using the side to make a paste.
In a wok or a large pan, heat the oil and add the garlic/chili paste. Stir-fry for 15 seconds until lightly golden. Add the chicken and beans. Cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes. Add the fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar and rest of the chili and stir-fry for 30 seconds longer. Remove from the heat and stir through the basil leaves.

Now hear this!

I think I'm in love with Cazwell. Because we need a gay rapper. He's like the gay Eminem.

Under the Sea...

EEEEK! My favorite Disney movie is going to be a Broadway musical. The guy who's set to play Prince Eric is HAWT. I wish I could re-write the story so Ursula the sea-witch wins.
Anyway, here's the 411.

La Vie en Rose

Last night I went with a friend down to the E St. Cinema to see "La Vie en Rose" a film about a great French singer, Edith Piaf, and the crazy life that she led. I highly, highly recommend this one. Though it was a bit long, it was great.

Gee, what else has been going on? Went to a 4th party in Reston, but the thunderstorms kind of ruined that one, so I went to see Transformers with Sean. You know, whenever I see old cartoons I used to love as a kid, I realize they are so much better in memory than reality. If you haven’t seen Transformers yet, just be aware it’s robots fighting eachother. That’s all. Oh and did I mention Sean is getting over his fear of driving into the city?

The night before that I went to Cobalt with Phillip and Fernando, prior to Phillip’s leaving for 3 weeks in Tahiti (must be rough). It was one of those perfect nights when it seems like everyone you know is out. Of course it also brought out every asshole queen in DC, too, which is why I hate Federal holidays.

Last Saturday, a party of note was Be Bar’s "Be Bad" night, with a fetish theme. I went with Sean and some other friends and had a great time. I like Be Bar, it’s like Halo with a dance floor.

And on other news: work is work, it’s muggy as hell outside, I’m getting another bump in pay in August (did I mention I love my new job?) and I might be going back to Rehoboth Beach this weekend. Hope everyone’s having a fun/safe summer!
