Dan Balan - Chica Bomb (Chew Fu Hurt Lockek Remix)

Yes, this video was cool enough to blog in my book. The best part about this remix is that it cuts out the weirdo dude that's dancing around them in the original version (no hyperlink because it will just ruin it). I'm not sure who these girls are, but they're very... talented. I'm sure this was a fun video to shoot and edit...

Nov 25: Thanksgiving After-Hours

I was gonna save this song for the Sunday shopping trip with the A-Team, but found a better song for that post. Plus this song is more chill for this post anyway.

Johnny Cash - Ring Of Fire

Since our family did Thanksgiving lunch, Brian and I really had no evening plans. Evita was pretty unoccupied after her family dinner, and Millar finished his family dinner and had an empty house. So Millar invited us over to just chill with some drinks and games.

I normally go out to a bar or club whenever I want to have a drink. Sometimes I forget how much fun you can have with a few good friends, music, a deck of cards, and some drinks. The Anti-NorCal meetup was nothing short of successful.

Brian had a sore throat. Nothing like some brandy on the rocks to cure ya.

We started off quick with that game Belle taught us last week. With 4 players, a standard 52-card deck allowed for 3 games for us. Plenty of giving and taking of swigs to warm us up.
Pick your poison: brandy, wine, beer, or mix and match your favorites.

Another new drinking game! Pyramid. This game REALLY got us messed up. And by "us", I mostly mean Millar who called BS on the 4th level and failed. 16 swigs?! Good god...

Magic trick intermission.

But I'm pretty sure Stephen Chen showed me how this one worked. But nice "slight of hand" moves Jason! No homo.

Drunk speed between Brian and Millar. I video taped it, but it was pretty anti-climatic.

Auto-light show intermission.

Pelican beaks.

Cigarettes. Brandy. Sniffer. Beers. Cards. Mancave status.

Up next: Drunk Driver card game. Simple concept. Dangerous as hell!

Well after all those drinks, we definitely couldn't drive home right away. So Evita brought out some leftovers from her family dinner. Turkey leg (WITH PAUL'S GRAVY!), ham, mashed potatoes, and bread. Lifesavers.

OOOH and apple pie! Nice.

Awesome random night guys. Let's do it again!

Nov 25: Thanksgiving Dinner Lunch #4

I would have copied Brian's Turkey Bowl 2010 post, but I was barely a part of it. After rushing back up from San Diego to make it an hour late, I was put into the game. 2 plays later, I pivot off my left knee and I'm hobbling off to the sideline. Goddamn it! Everytime I think it's getting better, I start all over... :(

I should have just stuck with playing on the strongside.

Pleasant surprise. My mom actually got the day off from work so we had a last-minute Thanksgiving Lunch instead of dinner. We didn't want to be too fancy and we didn't have time to really make a home-cooked meal. So we just got Woodranch BBQ to go. BBQ chicken, babyback ribs, and tri-tip with coleslaw, mashed potatoes, garlic rolls, corn bread, and pumpkin pie. I was tired of ham and turkey anyway!

Somehow, after 4 Thanksgiving meals, I didn't gain any weight! That's not a sign of bad cooking by any means. I'll tally that one to me being sick. Operation: Anti-Weight Gain was a success.

Nov 24: Hannie Humpday Friendsgiving

Kanye West - The Joy ft Pete Rock, Jay-Z, Charlie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield & Kid Cudi

I finally was able to make it down for a Hannie Humpday! And boy was it a good one. Hannie is the master chef of cooking for the group, specifically on Wednesdays for Hannie Humpdays. Cha was kind enough to host the party and Hannie (along with Judy and Annie) slaved in the kitchen for 2 days to prepare the dinner. Lots of awesome food, hanging out, playing games, and making memories. I love the holidays!

The first thing I noticed walking into the kitchen was this plate of chopped bacon. This can only lead to better things right?

Cupcakes. Plenty of them.


More bacon?! Bacon was baked on top of the turkey.
(And yes, I did eat some of this bacon.)

Hard at work!

Pusoy dos. And since no one is within reach of my crotch...

Jameson x Ginger Ale, holiday style.

Herro Kity!

Mitchy doing a little dance.

Probably the sexiest food picture I've ever taken.

Ohh... Hah!


Deviled eggs.

I can hear Jay's laugh in this picture somehow... Get it Brandon!

Harlem shakin'.

Bebe hip-thrustin'.

Me: You wanna be like Drake RJ? Drake likes Moscato.
Ahh... Well played my friend.

Grace. Thank you Gian.

Time to eat!

Green Beans. Macaroni and Cheese. Stuffing

Tofurkey. Mashed Potatoes. Ham.

Lasagna. Corn. Candied Yams.

Carving with intensity!

I finished this whole plate.

Mitchy x 2.

If babies and dogs could talk, what would they say to each other?
"Don't you love it when they carry you?"

Marie is hypnotized by Beauty and the Beast.

Magic Mic! Julz looking for some inspiration to sing!

You totally rocked!

Just kidding. "Try singing?"?! HAHHAHAHA!
