Update from The Gules' Birthday

As promised, I've uploaded a few pix from this weekend here. I would have shared more but most of the pix were taken on Indy's camera and she lost it. Drunkard!

Please note: I was really sick that night, so I look tow-up from the flow-up so it wasn't my fault.

Love in an Elevator

It's 5:13am and I just got home. Today is The Gules 26th birthday so we went to Huntington Beach, to a place called Black Bull, which turned out to be really fun! I'm still sick, but I mustered up the energy to get ready and go. I wasn't planning on drinking tonight because I drank to much @ Stripper_D's birthday recently, and being sick doesn't help. Mel lives in HB so we met up @ her house. She offered a me a shot of tequila but I was like "err... nah... I'm not drinking tonight, Mel". But before I could sit down she had poured me a huge glass of wine, while her and Indy took down the Jose Cuervo. I guess "I'm not drinking tonight", means "I'll pass on the tequila and have a wine instead" at casa de Mel. As Mel is handing me my drink, we realized we had to leave. Well... everyone knows, you can't let good wine go to waste, it's one of the ten commandments: Thow shall not waste the blood of christ aka wine, so I did what any decent person would do, and chugged it. I got a buzz real fast and it didn't go away all night.

Black Bull has a mechanical bull, I almost got on but my hair is way to luxurious to mess up.

Everyone was pretty shitfaced. A certain birthday girl started tossing her cookies. She ran to the men's restroom cause the chicks bathroom was way busy. She puked all over the place. Security came and escorted our entire group out. @ this point we call it a night and head for home.

Janda couldn't make it to the festivities tonight because she had to work, but she called as we are driving up to my gate and wants me and Indy to go meet her at
The Hotel because she's wrapping up The NAMM Show [one of the biggest conventions The OC will host this year], and she wants to have dinner. Indy and I are down for anything, so we meet up with Janda @ The Hotel. Himbo and Indy get to The Hotel; we're waiting for the elevator; the door opens and a girl is giving a guy a BJ! I laughed and got in the elevator, Indy walks in behind me and sees what's happening and nonchalantly says, "Oh no no children, we will be having none of that here. Not in the elevator, go to your room and do that". I couldn't stop laughing, it was the most awkward elevator ride I have ever taken.

I'll upload pix to my Flikr account, tomorrow. Right now I need to go to bed.

Good night... I mean, good morning!

P.S. I want to wish The Gules a Happy Birthday! Ewl Seck!

Trick or Tweet?

I'm finally on Twitter. It's so addicting! Go add me immediately http://twitter.com/FantabHimbo I think I have the lingo down, ahem, "Add me @fantabhimbo." Eh, eh? No? Whatever. I've added a widget over on the right so you can see my last 5 tweets.

I've been a little under the weather today; tonsils are swollen and throat's sore AGAIN. Can someone remind mother nature that it's January and not August, please? It's actually gorgeous outside so I shouldn't complain but my body is in total panic because it knows it's January, it prepared for a cold winter, but mother nature's like, "Just kidding... take that you giant". She's a trickster that mother nature she is. My electric bill is sure to be higher, I've had the AC on since the weekend.

I was hungry when I got home today, and lately I've been on this Mexican food kick [just tryin to get in touch with my roots mmmkay]. Bon Don came over for a couple of cooking lessons; one day we made frijoles de la hoya and another day Spanish rice. Isn't it ironic, don't you think[?], that Bon Don isn't Mexican, she's Apache [watch out for that bitch, she'll scalp ya if you cross her]. I made Soyrizo con huevos, today [sans Bon Don, she ditched me]. Yes, Soyrizo not
chorizo. I stopped eating meat last year. I saw the Soyrizo and decided to give it a try. It's actually really good, in fact better than the real thing. I couldn't tell that I was eating soy instead of pork lips, lymph nodes, and salivary glands [wikipedia that shit! Don't worry, I'll wait].

I'm hoping that I'll feel better tomorrow because it's been super busy @ work. As I've mentioned a couple of times recently, I work for 3 hotels now, instead of 1. My department is called RevMax, by industry folk. My company decided to eliminate the RevMax depts at all of the hotels in one of the smaller hotel-chains, and make the teams @ the larger chain take on the smaller hotels that were left orphaned. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining... glad I got to keep my job, just sayin.

Busting a Dar

It's January and I have had my AC on for two days. What. is. the. deal? I guess it's better than being in the freezing cold, like a few of my Canadian friends whose blogs I've been reading. Does anyone know what a furnace is?

Well, nothing can really get me down right now, American Idol! is on. Except for this...

My sister called a few minutes ago and
busted a Dar on me.

What is "busting a Dar", you ask? A kill-joy, a buzz-kill, more specifically when a person brings the mood down, depressing an entire crowd. Much like Bon Don's cousin, Dar who is notorious for doing just that, like every five minutes.

For example:

Himbo: I am having such a luxurious hair day, I am so happy.

Dar: Did you hear that some mother in Kansas killed her 5 children, gave them bad haircuts and then jumped off a freeway overpass on uncoming traffic and a semi ran her over, resulting in her death?

Himbo: I'm going to sleep, wake me up when September ends.

And... scene.

My sis, we'll call her "The Rose", calls me a few minutes ago. The conversation went a little something like this:

The Rose: Hi Him!

Himbo: Hey sis!

The Rose: My friends and I are taking our kids to Disneyland next month, can you get me some rooms @ your hotel? And can you join us that day?

Himbo: Sure, email me the dates. And Yay! I'd love to join, I miss the kids.

The Rose: How's work?

Himbo: It's so crazy... [interrupted by The Rose].

The Rose: Hey did you read about the guy that got runover on the 10 freeway in Palm Springs this weekend?

Himbo: No. Why would [interrupted again, by The Rose]

The Rose: Well, I went to Palm Springs to celebrate my friends bday this weekend, with some friends and our cousins. We got a suite to crash after the club. Part of the group went out to eat. Then one of the girls got a call, it was her BF who was with the group who went out to eat. He decides to walk back to the hotel and gets hurt so he calls his GF all disoriented, asking for someone to pick him up. They coudn't find him and I decided to drive home because I couldn't sleep with all the drama in the suite. We were driving home and a bunch of cops blocked 4 lanes; there was a dead body on the freeway. Later my friend called me and told me the dead body was the lost guy, he wondered on to the freeway and got hit by 4 cars.

Himbo: OMG!

The Rose: I know! It was so weird, we were hanging out with him all night. He was really cool. I can't get that whole night outta my head.

Himbo: I'm going to sleep, wake me up when September ends.

The Rose: Okay but first make sure you get me the rooms for next month.

And... scene.

I just realized I busted a Dar on ya. My baaad.

The cool kids ditched me today. No one wants to watch AI! Rudes. Can someone explain why Ryan Seacrest tried to high five the blind guy? Srsly?! What a fucken stupid bitch.

OoWoah OoWoah!

Himbo the Merman

Funny story: Bon Don and BDC came over tonight. Bon Don showed me how to make Spanish rice and she wanted to watch Another Gay Sequel. It was hilarious. Bon Don loves the gays, she's really a gay man trapped in a supermodel's body. After watching this scene [below] she busted up laughing and said I was Himbo the Merman 'cause in real life my hair is so luxurious that it does the same thing as Stan the Merman's [play video and see what I'm talking about].



Sidenote: Nico's hair is NOT luxurious!

The Don's just left. It's so windy outside. First an earthquake and now the Santa Ana Winds. My nose is on fire from the dryness brought on by the wind. But you know what? None of that matters 'cause guess what's back? American Idol! Woo hoo! I just found out two second ago. That makes me happy, that means the cool kids are going to be coming over on a regular basis and you'll be hearing about more of those fantabulous [infamous] Himbo parties. BDC is dying for SYTYCD, almost BDC, almost. Summer will be here before you know it, son.

Gotta hit the hay. I'm off like a prom dress.

BBF's will hold your luxurious hair back while you barf

It's Sunday and I'm recovering from a gnarly hangover. Last night was Stripper_D's birthday bash, we kicked it old school at her house. There was a DJ in the backyard, red plastic cups and a beer bong, needless to say we had a great time :) Stripper_D is the youngest of cool kids, she turned 22 [Ugh...I know! Stupid betch!] Her friends made us feel old, although those crazy kids were fun to watch. It's been a while since I've kicked it old school and forgot just how much those red cups can hold, I had way too much vodka+fruit punch and tossed my cookies when I got home. It was pretty painful.

I was in bed when Bon Don and BDC called me @ noon today, they wanted to have brunch. I needed food, and hungover or not, Himbo is not in the business of turning down food or good company. A three and half hour brunch was just the remedy, I felt so much better afterwards, but I had to forgo the mimosas. Sad day.

I spent the rest of the day lounging around my apartment, watching tv and movies. I just got the new Linkin Park CD+DVD called Road to Revolution. It's a live performance of their Projekt Revolution tour, in it they take a song [Pushing Me Away] and rework it from the original hard hitting rock style to a slower arena-rock version. I watched it like 500 times, it's SOOOO good. Seriously. I also caught up on Bros & Sissies and the season premiere of Nip/Tuck, which btw looks very promising.

Unfortunately I haven't had the same amount of free time to keep up with the blogosphere, or even post during the week. I've noticed other blogger buddies are experiencing the same thing. And my workload is continuing to grow; tomorrow my department will take on 2 more hotels.

Oh btw, did anyone else feel the earthquake on Thursday? It's the first quake in my new apartment. The whole place shook like crazy, but I thought it was just my neighbors doing the dirty again.

A Star is Born!

No no, not me. I was born 25... OMG almost 26!.. years ago [insert nervous laugh here], but I pursuaded my dear friend Brenda to start her very own blog [insert applaus here]! If you're a follower, you'll recall, prior to moving to The OC, I lived in a town I call The Tundra. That's where Bren lives, but the best part, she named her blog Musing from The Tundra. Dude, how cool is that?! It's like a spin-off! Not a failed s/o like Saved by the Bell: The College Years, but rather, a succesful s/o like Melrose Place.

Anyway, she's a doll, go check her out, I predict a bloggy award in her future.

Sidenote: My bloody neighbors [upsatirs] are so EFFING loud! Earlier they were doing the dirty, now they are just makin all kinds of unnecessary noise! Yes, neighbors I have a non-existent sexlife unlike you, thanks for rubbing it in. Bitches.

I stayed home stayed home today because I had a sore throat :( Instead fo going to work, I stayed in my PJ's all day and drank Throat Coat tea, watched Transformers, then Moulin Rouge like three times. Okay four. Okay five. Transformers is so funny, I catch new hidden jokes and double entendres everytime I watch it again. I always sing along to Linkin Park's "What I've Done" when it's playing in the movie. Moulin Rouge is just quite simply the best movie of all time. Maybe I'm exaggerating a bit but you get my drift. 

Alright well, I'm off to see the wizard, err... watch Bros & Sissies then hit the hay so I can go to work tomorrow. 

Oh shit! That reminds me; I'm carpooling with Bon Don tomorrow... accompanying her for moral support because she has to clock-in, in the ghetto, with the peasants now LOL LOL LOL! Let me clarify, us luxurious folk clock-in @ a convenient location on our way to our offices. The peasants [stuards, restaurant servers, housekeepers, etc.] all clock-in on the other side of the building, near the kitchen. Poor Bon Don has to temporarily clock-in @ the ghetto because her id isn't working on our side, so being the good friend that I am, I'm gonna hold her hand [while pointing and laughing at her] as we walk through the ghetto and try not to get our suits dirty, fending off the peasants. Alright I'm kidding with the peasant talk, some of my favorite people in the entire hotel are housekeepers, I just make fun because it makes Bon Don laugh. And for the record, I'm the most ghettofied person in the entire hotel. Don't hate.

One last thing! Tomorrow we will discuss my little friend [Bon Don's oldest daughter], Jo Schmo and her blog WhAt Is ThIs... ReAlLy??

Good night,
-Himbolicious out.

4 Day Weekends Are Such a CT

Sup, party people? Ugh, sorry, that was so douchebaggy of me! We have lots of catching up to do. NYE was awesome, I spent it @ Bon Don & BDC's house, They live like a mile down the road from me and they're my favorite people in the world. Bon Don and I took it like champs and drank wine while everyone else drank beer [I know, ew!], after killing 2 bottles, we went after the champagne [I know, totally luxurious!]. We were all pretty shitfaced, and Blue [Bon Don's Cujo-esque Chihuahua] was attacking Bon Don's family who was visiting, but we were all so drunk we thought it was hilarious. I got molested multiple times while at The Don's*, but I'm used to it because I have that effect on people. I sorta fell asleep on the couch at some point after midnight, but I hadn't eaten anything and I drank a lot; I think I got all hypoglycemic or something. Someone has pictures that I need to get a hold of...

*The Don's: Bon Don and BDC, when being referred to as a single unit.

Friday night I had dinner with some friends and had a wonderful time, I felt *really* good afterwards; I slept really well that night.

Saturday, I went with Bon Don and BDC to a Mexican Market. You know, those grocery stores with a big cow on the roof. It was so fun! The last time I went to one of those was years ago with my grandparents. I was sorta tipsy because right before hooking up with
The Don's, I had gone bowling [translation: I had gone drinking and occasionally threw a heavy ball across the room; not really aiming at anyone, I mean "anything"]. In dire need of fluids, I went to the bakery area for some agua fresca. I straight chugged it! I came home with the following fun items that you can't find anywhere else but a Mexican market:
  • I big huge concha; mexican sweet bread in the shape of a huge seashell.
  • Salsa Fresca; fresh homemade salsa.
  • Queso Fresco; fresh [Mexican style] cheese.
  • Corn and flower tortillas. The good kind, not Mission brand tortillas [<--white folk tortillas].
  • Beans, with dirt and all.
Bon Don convinced me to get beans; she said she'd come over and supervise me while I make them, because you see, I've never made beans before. We sorted beans, picking out frijoles that are not luxurious enought for our pot, sifting for rocks and such. Then we rinsed the frijoles and finally cooked them. it took 3 hours but it was worth it! They came out so delicioso!

On NYE, Dar and Sra. Fernandez (Bon Don's momma) said that I looked like Freddy Rodriguez who played Rico on Six Feet Under. I don't exactly see it... your thoughts?

Himbo [on the left], Freddy [on the right]; cause I know you'd get confused by my beauty.
