Episode 125: Strawberry Fields Forever [Feb. 19th, 2006|10:43 pm]

It's strange to think that strawberries are in season in January and February, and they slowly fade out of season as summer approaches.  That's just one of the quirks of living in Southern California.  Our winters are bi-polar at times.  And during the expected frosted window seasons, we find ourselves enjoying a green basket of ripened, red strawberries just picked from the vine.  I've had quite a dozen helpings of them.  I wish they could be enjoyed in the summer as well.

My President's Day weekend can be themed as an Italian, Transgendered, Acetaminophen filled three days.  The headaches are still on and off.  I've eaten twice already at my favorite Fullerton Italian place, Angelo & Vinci's.  During the end of my illness, I was starting to crave this food again.  I've made up for some of it this weekend.  

I also saw the film "Transamerica" with Michelle and I really enjoyed it.  It was a good balance of drama and humor.  I hope Felicity Huffman gets the Oscar next month.  She gave a phenomenal performance!  The actor who plays her son in the movie is quite the "hottie."  If you've seen it, you'll know what I mean.  I was fortunate that this film was playing in Orange County.  In the theater, I noticed a lot of seniors watching this film.  And when the film was over, I heard some of their commentaries.  They appreciated Felicity's performance despite the uncomfortable moments in the movie.  What do you expect from Orange County Republicans?  At least they had an open-mind to spend 10 bucks to see it.  I hope it expanded their culture of knowledge.

Next weekend, I am going to West Hollywood for Paula's birthday celebration.  I have not been there in probably over a year or two.  There are parts to this upcoming trip that I am slightly dreading.  I know it's silly, but I just can't bring myself to finding any quality fun in West Hollywood these days.  Sometimes I see the city as needing a big baby-sitter and a reality check to see what is actually going on in this world.  I know food will be involved, and probably some dancing at a local club.  The company will at least be nice, and I hope the activities will be fun.
