Boulevard of Not So Broken Dreams

Hi guys & dolls! It's been a while again. I've been busy starting over. In a previous post I talked about wanting to move to LA, so I finally did it! Now I work at a hotel on the Sunset Strip called the Mondrian, this place is crazy-cool and the bar (skybar) is pretty infamous! I pinch myself everyday, it's unreal. I moved into a brand new condo, also on Sunset, right down the way. You know, when I was moving into my studio the last time, I was really nervous about it, but it turned out to be really cool and convenient to have everything in one room. Now I will have to get used to a big space with lots of walls lol!


My first day in LA I went for a walk, I ended up in Beverly Hills, from my place Hollywood. One of the many perks of my new surroundings is that I live a few blocks from Runyon Canyon, the views of LA are amazing! And I saw Rick Fox and Eliza Dushku the last time I hiked it.



This weekend I was walking down Sunset Boulevard, checkin' out my new hood, passed by the Chateau Marmont and couldn't resist, so I sneaked in. Haha! I felt like a spy.

Everything's been great, I feel like I made the right decision by coming here. I was really bored in OC. But I freakin' miss my Bon Don and the Kewl Kidz so much! Bon Don told me she's gonna pick me up next weekend, we're gonna go on a date and then cuddle the rest of the weekend. I can't wait!

The weather has been crazy though, I have cold right now, and last weekend, I had tonsillitis AGAIN! I'm a little nervous about this flu season and swine-flu, I've become a germaphobe.

Alright friends, let me know how you are all doing.

A few minutes ago I got a text from my friend, Brooke. She tells me that Kim's (Kim is one of our best friends) sister, Khloe, didn't invite us to her wedding. "Us" referring to my innercircle of friends, I've known them since at least middle-school. Conversation goes as follows:

Brooke: Hey guess what Khloe did?
Himbo: Preggers?
Brooke: No. She didnt invite any of u guys.
Himbo: To what?
Brooke: The wedding.
Himbo: Whose wedding?
Brooke: Khloe's!
Himbo: Eh Its cool. Aint no thang but a chicken wang. I dont like paisa weddings anyway.
Brooke: LOL!

F**k Was I

I heard this song on Weeds and had to look it up. Just listen to it, it speaks for itself.

I can't believe I didn't watch Weeds until now. You can watch previews on their

It's Himbo, Bitch...

Thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, cha boom, cha boom, cha boom

Hahaa... I'm back, bitches. I know, right, I fell off the face of the Earth for a while. It's ironic 'cause I didn't stop blogging for lack of blog worthy material, rather, 'cause I've actually had LOTS going on... didn't find the time to blog. I've been processing some thangs, lots of self reflection, lots of logisitical planning and working out a strategy for my future.


I've been driving my little beamer around again. It sat parked for three years; it's so liberating to drive again. I've been spending a little time in L.A. and I realized I was born to live there.

I've spent the past two months sick with tonsillitis, 3 times to be exact. I've gotten to know my doctor really well. I finally got some pharmaceuticals to help me fall asleep, she gave me tranquilizers [wee!], but she also took me off of coffee, I almost cut her when she told me but then I realized she wouldn't be able to refill my tranqs if I did that.

A few weeks ago, The Don's and I went to Long Beach Pride, I'd never been to one before, we had a great time. We even met up with Gabby from Gabby She Wrote, and Baxter. Bon Don has been promising to send me pix but she still has yet to send them to me. As soon as she does, I'll post some.

Last Sunday, Bon Don and I took an empromptu trip to Belmont Shore, I'd never been there, it was cute. We had dinner at the uber-luxurious La Creperie, loved that place!

Lately, I've been addicted to Chelsie Lately, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List and of course.... wait for it.... wait for it.... SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE! Okay, so far I have a few faves, I love Asuka Kondoh (and she's from The OC [Irvine]), Jonathan Platero, Jason Glover and Janette Manrara. Although they're all pretty good this season. The last dance of the night, a samba, was muy CALIENTE!!


I have a busy weekend ahead of me, I'm actually sorta nervous. I'm going back to The Tundra for my friends wedding, We went to prom together, and haven't spoken in years but she's way awesome. I'm stoked she's tying the knot. I'll probably see lots of peeps I haven't seen in over 5 years. Yikes!! Then from there, I'm headed directly to Palm Springs to another old friend's graduation party. She's a nurse graduating from The College of the Desert. I'm so proud of her because she's had to work 10 times harder than anyone else and she's done it all on her own. She's a rock*. Sunday night, I'll have to drive all the way back to The OC from PS and work on Monday... oy! But I'll manage.

Alright kids, if any of you are still following me, please leave me a comment.

Love,
-Him

Sex On Fire



"Sex On Fire" by
Kings of Leon

I've really been diggin this song lately. I think it's another one I stole from Bon Don. She's always on the inside track. Anyways, don't fall in ♥ with me! Okay... you can fall in ♥ with me.

P.S. Sorry for being so elusive lately but I felt like you and I were losing that loving feeling and I needed you to miss being with me. I needed you to be excited every time you saw me; every time you smelled my hair; every time you heard my voice... err... read my blog.

P.S.S. I officially hate American Idol! Stupid show. Allison was the best thing that ever happened to that show. Patuee!

My vote is going to Allison for American Idol! This chick is A--mazing! It's ironic that this season the two best singers are rock*'s, Allison and Adam. In the past the rockers didn't win American Idol! Hopefull, this season changes that.

Have Your SCUBA Gear Ready, Himbo's Goin Deep

I'm feeling much better today, thank god! It's been a really tough couple of weeks. You know how they say: when it rains, it pours. Lately, it has for me but life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain. I'm still learning to dance in the rain but I'm making progress.

Well, it turns out I have tonsillitis and 2 ear infections (<--correction to my last post), the pain was so intense, my doctor prescribed another drug to help with pain and swelling on top of the antibiotics that I'm already taking. It made a world of difference. But I think the biggest improvement was a result of spending all afternoon with Bon Don and company, and crashing at her house. I really don't know what I would do without my Bon Don. Lacking sleep; sunlight; food ('cause I couldn't swallow anything); and human interaction, I was starting to lose my mind in my tiny studio apartment. Going over to Bon Don's and being around amazing people, and getting taken care of was nice. Confined to my bed, I had plenty of time alone with my thoughts. Intense stuff... It wasn't fun but I realized a lot in the process. One major revelation: in the past year I've grown a tad disconnected, even from most of my closest friends. It took a huge event for me to see that I redirected all of my focus to one place. I'm still pretty young in this life, still got a lot to learn, and I realized that I can't regret anything because I've grown as a result of each experience, yet I couldn't help but feel sad and guilty. 

In the end, I gained a newfound appreciation for everything around me. As you can tell, I'm very introspective these days and I'm finding that being alone with my thoughts is difficult but I will persevere. 

G'night

Another Funny Story

Well, not really. I haven't been to work in nearly two weeks. Saturday, I helped my best friend move to L.A which totally sucked cause he's really cool and I'm gonna miss him a lot, but at least he'll be close enough to visit. I took that following week off cause my cousin and his friend came to visit me. I also had to handle some stuff in the Tundra... long story short, my drivers license has been reinstated which makes me incredibly happy. I got sick while I was in the Tundra, I thought it would go away on it's own but it got really bad. My doctor found a throat infection and 2 ear infections... sad times. It sucked so bad but I'm on antibiotics, hopefully back to normal soon. Needless to say, I haven't had much energy to blog. I'm going to attempt to go to work tomorrow, hopefully I'll be well enough to make it. It'll be weird cause it'll be the first time since my friend moved (we both worked @ The Hotel). I've been mostly bed ridden. It sucked, nothing good was on tv. Boredom is no fun. So anyway, sorry for not posting, expect to hear more from me soon.

Stripper_D, Reina_B and I met with our general manager (Harry) the other day, he called it a "huddle with Harry". Stripper_D called it our "cuddle with Harry". Ha! She's so durrrty like Xtina.

If I Could Turn Back Time...

So, Endless Summer turned out to be awesome, I also got 3 others in that batch, Billy Wilder SpeaksGoodbye, Norma Jean and And the Beat Goes On: The Sonny and Cher Story.


Billy Wilder Speaks was a snooze-fest! I am a huge fan of Wilder but this film did absolutely nothing for me. If I could turn back time... I wouldn't waste my time watching this.








Goodbye, Norma Jean was BIZARRE! I actually hated it. HATED IT! It's from 1976 so I prepared myself for it but there is just no amount of preparation that can help, everything about it screams 70's.

The music... atrocious, it sounded like porn music. But watching a porno lacking nudity and sex would still be better than Goodbye, Norma Jean.

There was tons of unnecessary nudity. Normally that's a good thing but this was just bad. And the characters used some pretty interesting language. They'd use words like "Cock", "Blow Job", "Fuck", and it sounded forced.

The actress suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked. She had the most annoying mouth! Every time she opened her mouth she'd show every single tooth. That bite was nasty, I'm sorry. And she sounded fucking retarded ...Train wreck.

But the most offensive part was the disclaimer in the beginning of the movie, it basically states that everything in the film is true. Well, boys and girls, hate to break it to ya but that was a big-fat-enormous-HUGE-gigantic-lie. Everything like her hair color, her first hubby, actual events... I don't even know where to start... nothing about the movie actually happened the way it was portrayed in this mess of a film. Total failure!

And the Beat Goes On: The Sonny and Cher Story was a movie I had seen a loooong time ago but it was probably about 10 years ago so I queued it. WOW! The Actress who plays Cher really got the character down! She was perfect. Every nuance and mannerism was spot on. And the look... flawless. I totally thought I was watching Cher. She was the best part of the movie but it was a good find. I loved it.


That's it. Good night.

The Endless Summer

A few months ago my friend suggested a film called The Endless Summer. He spoke highly of it so I like "Eh... okay fine I'll queue it", and forgot about it. It sat all alone, all quiet at the end of my Netflix queue, then finally it arrived at Chateau Himbo this weekend. But people, let me tell you, I was not prepared for the level of awesomeness that slapped me in the face! Not to worry, it didn't mess up my hair.

So, I read the blurb on the little envelope that it comes in and it says it's a documentary. Now, don't get me wrong cause I love documentaries, yes I am a huge nerd, HUGE, but I wasn't really in the mood for one. Then I noticed that it's from 1966! I was like "Woah woah woah woah... hmmm..." I don't know if I'm up for this. I read on and "filmed in Hawaii, Australia, Africa and Tahiti" caught me eye, so I'm like, "Okay that might be cool". Read a little more and "[...]strengthening their friendship and teaching natives along the way", I'm thinkin' "Hmmm... this could get interesting". So I figured let's get it out of the way, if it sucks I'll return it today.

*Himbo pops in the dvd*

You know how everything that's old starts with a really loooooong prologue with boring music? Well this had one, I nearly ended that "Endless Summer", but I was distracted by a shiny object and it started before I was done looking at the shiny object (it was a mirror. Shh... don't tell anyone). It started out sorta cool, the narrator sounded young and seemed really funny. It was very intriguing 'cause it had a 'reality tv' feel... you know, scripted but pretending not to be. It also reminded me of those really old black and white Disney shows. It kept getting better and better as it went on. It was so trippy... it did a great job of placing you in the 60's and making you understand exactly what it was like back then, the surf scene was just becoming.

The Don's came over half way through and finished watching it with me. We all loved it, laughing our arses off. Apparently BDC had watched it when he was 15 and remembered the whole thing. He's a cray-cray.

So, my friend tells me that there's a sequel [
The Endless Summer II] and that I need to watch it. It's next in queue :D There's a third one called The Endless Summer Revisited, it's a little different but I'm such a fan now that I'll need to see that too. I went back to Netflix and rated Endless Summer, 5 stars. Take my advice go watch it and tell me what you think.

I'll tell you about the other 3 movies I Netflix'd, tomorrow. There's not a whole lot to say about them.

Blue Monday

Loca, what's with the Blue Monday? Is it just me or has today been the lamest day EVER? It's cold outside, not very sunny at all, the vibe in the office is bleugh. Mondays aren't typically my favorite day of the week but I'm just not feeling it today. I got a lot of work done, but it was just way too easy and effortless. There's nothing exciting about today, I don't like the feeling of that.

Anyway... I need a change. A little spice in my life. Give me some suggestions or inspiration.

Loca, I said HIV!

Oooooh my jeeeez, kids! I am addicted to RuPaul's Drag Race on VH1! Drag queens are a hoot!

Exibit A

Exibit B

My favorite has to be Nina Flowers, she is a fierce Puerto Rican with tons of tude! The girl is HILARIOUS!!!! She has a really thick accent and calls everyone "loca" which means crazy girl in Espanol. Loca, her English isn't all that great and reading from a queue card proved to be a challenge for her, loca.

In episode 3, the drag queens were asked to use Oprah as inspiration and interview Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott. Well loca, Mz Flowers was up and the queue card read:

"Hit TV show, Tori & Dean"

Well... Nina got it wrong and what came out of Nina's mouth was classic. In the video below, you will see exactly how it went down. The video is the full clip, Nina's part is 12:15 into the video. Loca, it is worth the effort, you MUST watch it!



What's your drag queen name, loca? Mine is Puffy Carranza. Coming up with your drag queen name is easy, take the name of your first pet, and the name of the street you grew up on, put them together and voila!

How Do You Sleep?

I've been having a little trouble sleeping lately, I get like that sometimes. I decided to get a few things today, to help me sleep but I didn't realize it was gonna cost me $60!



Taking a hot shower right before bed helps me sleep, and there's this amazing cream I use that makes my skin feel so soft whch adds to my ability to fall asleep quicker. So, super, amazing, luxurious, makes-my-skin-silky-smooth-and-delicious cream... check.

The scent of lavender helps me sleep, and I LOVE the smell of lavender, so I got some lavender electric plugins to place near my bed, and a lavender scented spray for my sheets and pillows. Luxurious Lavender smelly stuff... check.

Chamomile tea... check

Mint tea... check

Lifescapes "Sleep" CD... check.

How does that add up to $60?? I should just start drinking red wine right before bed, red wine always makes me super sleepy! Whatevs, I'm gonna go shower, lather up, drink tea, smell the flowers and listen to soothing sounds now. G-night.

Project Luxurious Update

FINALLY... My new mattress was delivered this morning! I went to work today but came back home after running a few reports, because I'm not feeling very well. Bon Don force fed me meat the night before last and my poor little tummy has been so mad at me. Well, it's mad at Bon Don 'cause it's all her fault. I haven't eaten meat in over a year but I've decided to reintroduce meat into my diet, just not full time, I'll be a part time carnivore. I had dinner with The Don's the other night and Bon Don ordered Won Ton Nachos, which have shredded pork sprinkled on top. I seriously only had like a quarter serving of the pork yet my stomach's been upset ever since.

So I came home today at noon and put my bed together so I could lie on it. It's so luxurious! I don't even know what to do with myself right now. Actually, I'm gonna lie down and take nap but Bon Don made me post some pix so she can see from work, so without further adieu:



I got rid of my couch and replaced it with this chaise:

What do you think?

-Himbo

Electro Movimiento

I'm about to make myself go to bed because my new mattress is being delivered EARLY tomorrow morning, but not before sharing this video which I have been obsessed with for the past week. The song is called "Electro Movimiento" by a latin-reggaeton duo called Calle 13. It's kinda like an 80's throw-back, the video is great and the song is great - hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

By Your Side... I Get No Sleep!

I'm having a hard time falling asleep. My creative juices were a flowin and I haven't been able to turn it off. It started this afternoon when I went to Target to pickup some tools I needed in order to continue on with Project Luxurious. I really only intended to get olive oil and a staple gun but I ended up spending over $100. I got a level which turned out to be quite handy... I have vertigo therefore not the best at eyeballing stuff for accuracy. I stumbled on a few t-shirts and the movie Australia, cause I needed something to watch while I decorated. AND... I really love that movie. So I was in bed trying to sleep but I couldn't get Sade's By Your Side out of my head. I just discovered Sade, apparently I have been hiding under a rock. Bon Don played it for me a couple of weeks ago and I have been meaning to add it to my playlist, but hadn't gotten around to it. I won't be able to sleep all night if I didn't get up immediately and find the song. Now I'm just sitting here listening to it.

Btw, did anyone catch
Bros & Sissies Tonight? T'was pretty good! So much drama, it reminds me of my family.

Well, I'm gonna try to go to sleep. Wish me luck!

...I'm gonna be a mess tomorrow!

Here's the song:

"Alone" on the American Idol! Stage

My life is starting to seem to piece back together :D I'm living in my apartment again, I finally have my new furniture, my new mattress is on the way, AND... I'm catching up on American Idol! as well as the rest of my DVR lineup. As I caught up on AI! I thought to myself, "Man, Himbo... the contestants suck this year!", then I thought, maybe AI! producers are trying a new sound system and it's making everyone sound horrendous. But then I remembered Allison Iraheta's performance of Heart's "Alone" last week and I'm sorry but she ROCKED IT so the others have no excuse. Allison's performance was so good that I downloaded it on itunes, which I've never done before. As far as I'm concerned, Allison's in a league of her own... the rest are just around until she wins.

So this week was good in terms of discovering good new music. Here's the short list:
  1. Alone (by Heart) covered by Allison Iraheta
  2. Untouched by The Veronicas
  3. Unbelievable (i am jen remix) by Sleepy Rebels
Playlist provided below:



Oh and btw... Allison's hair is luxurious!

Sneak Peek

I finally got my bed and my chaise, here's a sneak peek. When I'm done, I'll post pix of Chateau Himbo.

The bed in this shot, is the one I bought. Isn't it luxurious?!

And this is my chaise:


That's all for now... gotta go home :P

Project Luxurious

Duuuuude! I know... the frequency of my blog posts have dwindled down to a pathetic rate. I am neck deep... nay!  I am up to my eye brows, immersed in Project Luxurious.

What is Project Luxurious, you say?

PL is the pop-culture reference to the rebeautifcation process of my apartment.

Let me back track a little... when I got back from Himbolicious Birthversary Spectacular! I came home to a gazillion ants. Immediately, I had my staff (lol... my staff. Who am I kidding?) address the catastrophe at hand. Btw, "immediately" is a himboism for "like 2 weeks, or so".  Anyways, I stayed at Bon Don's for like a month cause Himbolicious was not about to get his hair undid by a bunch of bugs... mmkay! Turns out the ants thing was a way bigger thing than I imagined and I had to basically move my entire apartment into the middle of the livingroom, so that the exterminator could come and spray the shit out of Chateu Himbo. Bon Don helped me do all this nonsense. HOWEVER... when you get Bon Don and Himbo in a room together, bad shit's bound to happen. Well, Bon Don convinced me to chuck my bed and couch, so I could get new ones. In the trash went the bed and couch and Himbo had to live with Bon Don and BDC until he wasn't afraid to go home anymore. It ended up being a much bigger project than I had ever envisioned but i"m nearly done and I can't wait. 

So you see kids, I haven't been ignoring you. I've just been preoccupied... consumed with PL.

P.S. I may or may not be drunk as a skunk right now... but that's beside the point. However, any gramatical errors are to be blamed on the alcohol consumption. 

I'm off like a prom dress...

Himbolicious Quote #10

Am I the only one completely over the rain? And the freezing cold weather? ...So unneccesary. As Cher Horowitz ever so eloquently put it, "AS IF! [...] this is California, not Kentucky". This crazy weather has got me a little moody, I find myself getting worked up over small stuff. Anyway, I haven't been posting very frequently lately, mostly because I have been staying over at Bon Don and BDC's house, I end up having way too much fun with them and never get around to blogging. I have to go home pretty soon because I plan on getting a new bed tomorrow, and maybe a chaise for my apartment, so I'll need to go rearrange my place, and all that jazz. I've also been spending time at the gym, going to a kewl new class called Rowbics. Everything hurts right now, I'm all sore.

So, we'll have lots to catch up on, Gabby's birthday extravaganza, SheBloggs' visit, pix of my newly redecorated apartment... I promise I'll be back with a vengeance, soon and will come over to the blogs I follow, to leave comments, hopefully by next week.


P.S. Don't forget to go join this giveaway!

Cheers,

Will Blog 4 Food

Exciting news..! My friend, who I just decided to rename "Guero", is conducting a giveaway at his blog. Click here to check it out!

He's giving away $100 to Mix, a swanky new restaurant in The OC. He took me there before it officially opened... as training for their staff. I loved it, it's uber-luxurious and the staff wears the coolest outfits. The girls wear one of those Shakira-belts, you know it's like a scarf that goes around the waste, and the guys wear mandarin collar jackets, I loooove mandarin collar! I am absolutely bananas over the Five-Cheese Quesadilla with Shrimp and Green Tomatillo Sauce. It's sooooo good! That green tomatillo sauce is out of this world. You have to try a dessert called Taste of Chocolate, you have to taste it to comprehend the luxuriosity of it.

Anyway, you only have a week so run over to his blog and enter the giveaway, and tell him I sent you. If you win, you're taking me with you. I'm not joking... not even a little bit. Okay fine, you don't have to take me, I can pretty much go whenevs cause I have friends in high places... or is it that my friends are always high?

Please dear, your Uncle Himbo is hung

Scheiße! I know, I know... I've been M.I.A. a while [insert gunshot sounds here]. I deserve a spanking, or 26, but I'd really enjoy that... make sure you put your back into it.

a few weekends ago I celebrated my birthday, which went down in history as "Himbolicious Birthversary Spectacular!". It was amazing, the night lived up to the name. I got a couple of free rooms at "The Bev" (a hotel in Beverly Hills), one of which was upgraded to a suite. After we checked in, we walked to our suite in the Oasis tower, and ran into Justin Long, turns out the cast from "He's just not that into you" was at The Bev for a press junket. Stripper_D and The Lindz allegedly "borrowed" a makeup chair from the makeup room which was near mine. While the ladies got ready, Andy, BDC and I headed downstairs for a drink at Trader Vic's Lounge, I felt like such a rock*. It's a luxurious polinesian lounge where you can find the best drinks on the mainland. Then we all met up in the suite, everyone brought alcohol - we had champagne, wine, vodka, tequila, and I can't remember what else. After getting nice and shitfaced, we cabbed it 2 miles down Santa Monica Blvd. to run amuck in WeHo, at The Abbey.

The Abbey was effin' groovy! I got to take a picture with drag queens! Bon Don and BDC were also celebrating their anniversary so they headed back to the hotel... Mmmkay! By the time we headed back to The Bev to polish off the rest of the alcohol, only the hardcore porn*'s... I mean, rock*'s were left, Stripper_D, The Lindz, Andy and yours truly. On the cab ride back, Stripper_D allegedly stole a piece of a sign which was glued to the cab door - fucken klepto! She was in the backseat (as usual), when all of a sudden we heard this loud snap, everyone turned to her and she blurts out "I fell"! Umm... she was sitting down in a cab, but we were all too drunk to think it through. It wasn't until we got out of the cab that she showed us the merchandise... allegedly.

The next day we had breakfast at Bossa Nova and then headed back home to The OC, but enough about Himbolicious Birthversary Spectacular! (HBS!), cut to today, I haven't been home since the landmark event because my place is such a disaster you'd be required to wear a hard hat to be inside. So instead I've been crashing at The Don's, they Spoil me rotten. I've also been crazy busy at work... and truth be told, every weekend since HBS! I've enjoyed some libations causing your Uncle Himbo to be hung, thus unable to handle business @ Chateu Himbo. Priorities people. I have them.

Here are some pix from Himbolicious Birthversary Spectacular!:

6. I wear glasses but I broke them a couple of years ago and just never made it back to the optometrist to get a new pair. I had Chester Bennington glasses. Click
