Portraits of friends

Going to bars, singing kareoke, drinking beerz... and taking photos..

My friend Gwen checking text messages at Woodrows bar outside on the patio.

My friend Kevin at Rudyard's bar.. when I asked him if he would be taking the mic during kareoke later.. I take that as a "no"..

My friend Sarah at The Prolariat during kareoke on Friday.

I met Max on Friday.. he's a Journalism teacher, a singer, and he let me rub his shoulders all night long.. need I say more??

Random Photoz

I'm not blogging much these days, yes I know. Don't worry, I'm hardly blogging on myspace either. :P

I just got a new camera phone. It's a Samsung T509 from T-Mobile and it takes the bestest photoz in ze world, IMO. It's actually #4 on the top 10 cell phones to own according to MSN. Read about it here.

So in light of getting a new camera phone, I'd like to post a few random photos for all to see. It's my way of creating a photoblog, if you will.. just a place to ''store'' my random photos. :D (Some of these are taken with the new phone, some with the old phone. All are good. All are random.)

08/24/06 In my car, getting ready to go out on a Thursday night to happy hour.

Meeting Carlos Mencia at his show on Sept 9th at the Toyota Center in Houston.


My friend Emma and I at Jillian's for Jeni's g'bye party back in June 2006.


My friend Randy and I at ze Casino in Lake Charles, LA last month.

The new tech guy here, named Ron, asked me out! We're about to head out to a local bar with live music and great drinks! Wish me luck!

Drinky drinky usually leads to winky winky ;-)

I belong to this group called Thirsty Nights, and we go out to happy hour every Thursday. (get it? get it??) And this Kevin fellow who I went out with a few weeks ago is part of the same group. I assume he's still kinda hung up on his ex girlfriend, but I still wanted to get to know him, and plus I'm trying to get him hired on here at the company I work for, so I was excited about going to Thirsty's last night. We all had a great time, it's really an eclectic group of people, but mainly geeks and people who like indie metal and rock. Whatever that means. LOL. And they are the nicest and funniest people evah. (besides you guys, of course..) When I first showed up at the pub, Kevin was at the bar, so I said hi to him and gave him a hug and he bought me a drink and we went outside to greet everyone. After intros (because this is only my fourth time out and I still don't know everyone), Kevin and I sat and talked about the new job prospect. He's a tech guy, so naturally he's not happy with our company's dress code.. LOL.. slacks are like kryptonite to these guys. Oh well, I guess he'll have to deal if he wants to get paid the big bucks!

At the end of the night, after everyone had left, he walked me out to my car and he was telling me about how to get to the freeway from where we were.. but I was so tipsy that I was staring into his eyes and I could tell he was blabbering on about nothing just to do the same to me.. hehee. He is still really reserved, but he did say that he wants to get to know me more. I am really hoping to get him this job so that way we'll get to hang out more ;)

We're not in chat rooms anymore, Toto.

So I know I've been gone from blogging for a while and a half and so much has happened, that I should be blogging about.

But yes.. it's true, I've been completely consumed by Myspace, ain't that a bitch?! And I know most of you loathe that site, but those of you who are on Myspace, then look me up by the site with the same name as my blog here: Quesadillas for Breakfast.

The baby rats are doing well, by the way. After day one, Chibbs has moved in as the old, fluffy, mother hen-type. And it's hilarious to see them all sleeping in the same bed with Chibby taking up all the room and the two babies squished in between where ever they can find room.

Brandon recently went thru some rearrangements at his office, and between having to move his desk and catch up on work he had missed, he hasn't been able to chat consistantly in quite some time. It's actually pissing me off and I'm not sure I have the right to be upset. I guess I've just been spoiled by all the attention that I feel abandoned if he's not talking to me during the whole day. Weird, eh? It's been a week since we've talked all day and I'm getting paranoid now.. thinking, what if we're growing apart now? What if we live two seperate lives now? What if he's gotten so used to me not being there that he actually prefers not to talk to me now? I tell ya.. it's driving me crazy just thinking about it.

Also, I've been venturing outside my comfort zone and doing things that I never thought I'd enjoy again. I've been meeting new people and seeing new bands and hanging out at new bars and just enjoying being around lots of different people. One co-worker here knows a guy named Jason Ashley. He's a cute country singer, who just got signed in Nashville and hopefully some day will make it big! He's opening for Trace Adkins sometime during his tour next year. Also, I've seen this local Austin band called The War Against Sleep, and the band members are good friends with another co-worker of mine. What's cool about knowing the band is that you pretty much get free drinks, the best seats in the house and all the good smoke ;) Heh heh.. just kidding! (kinda)

On the other hand, all the guys I've met thus far, while really hella nice, have been duds. One of them, Robert, I guess decided that he was too good for me and never called me back. One of them, Kevin, is part of my Thursday night happy hour group, but has decided that he's not completely over his ex girlfriend. Another one, Chris, is a ghetto white boy... yeeeah.. that's right.. he's white, shaved head, talks likes he's black. What the fuck. But I'm not really getting down about the guys, I'm just happy to be meeting people and being bold by asking them out and having fun going out on dates.

I realized that I have such a great variety of friends lately. I've always been the kind to stick to one or two people rather than have a bunch of aquaintances. But ya know what, it's been really liberating having seven or eight different groups of people to hang out with. It has definitely kept my calendar busy, that's for sure. I've been to Louisiana this month already and next month, I'm going to Austin on Halloween night to see a special show by a live band! Also, I'm going to Beaumont in Oct to see Jason Ashley again! Just Sept and Oct alone, I have a craft night, a bridal shower, a trip to Beaumont, a trip to Austin, a wedding, a swap meet/girl's night, seven happy hours, a pampered chef party, and a company walk-a-thon. It's gonna be one hell of a busy month. So if you don't see me for a while, you know why. And now you know where to find me.

Remember, I'm on Myspace, too: www.myspace.com/quesadillasforbreakfast I also blog on there!

I just realized... I should blog here more often. :P
