Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...2-15-10

For The Week Of 2-15-10

5. Bowling with my Co-workers

4. Making some tasty fajitas and rewatching "The Princess And The Frog" - Thanks to my mom for picking up some carne asada and some chicken for Mel and I to cook. It only took a few minutes to cook,we added some rice and, while eating this tasty meal, watched a dvd quality bootleg of "The Princess and The Frog". A great meal and a fun, funny movie. A fun night.

3. "What is this fool, salad crazy"- This week we've been eating our fare share of salads. I made a tasty salad with spinish leafs, dried cranberrys, crutons and tuna...with a little salt, pepper and lime juice. But Mel's salad was FAR better than mine...she made a "everything but the greasy shell" taco salad. Ground beef (!!), alvacado, lettuce, shredded cheese...all things awesome.

2. Going to Moonstar Buffet with My Mom - I ate until I hardly move...seafood overload...it was great.

1. "Zombieland" - I'll be honest, when this movie was in theatres, depite liking most things zombie, I thought it looked stupid. So, when netflix brought this to us this week, I didnt expect much. What I did see was gory and funny (Bill Murray in a great cameo) and a fun start to what ended up being quite the movie marathon that day. 7.5/10.

So...that's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...2-8-10

For The Week Of 2-8-10

5. Going bootleggin', reading on bart, getting a few good movies and , on the way back, running into my mom on the bart train home.

4. "What is this fool, sandwhich crazy ??" - In short, I've been in a sandwich kinda mood recently. In addition to making a few boloney (doesnt seem like the right spelling, but google says different) sandwiches I've been going to this store down the street that makes an awesome egg salad. I also, on the same day, got a turkey and pastrami for Mel. We each got a half of each and enjoyed the sandwich awesomeness.

3. Making awesome things with clay at Mel's Mom's craft shop - Go visit the Crafters Retreat...its wicked fun.

2. Cleaning the apartment and finding good stuff - It was like christmas morning...among the treasures uncovered : Several unread magazines, new cds I thought lost...and over $100 in cash!!

1. My 2nd Valentines Day with The Melanie !! - My second valentines day with my love was fun from start to finish. We went to the movies and saw an okay film (Percy Jackson & The Olympians : The Lightning Thief) and I made an epic sandwich ( I dont want to give away my recipe) for dinner. We watched movies and spent time together. She got me Kanye West's VH1 Storytellers cd (its hilarious, he rants about the weirdest crap) and she custom made me an awesome shirt like the shirt worn by of my favorite comic chracters (X-factor's Maddrox, look it up). It was a great day and, like everyday before that one, I'm happiest when I get to spend the day with her.

So...that's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...2-1-10

For the week of 2-1-10

5. Planet Hulk on dvd - Sometime last year I spent almost an entire day reading the graphic novel "Planet Hulk", it was a great story. The Hulk, exiled by his superhero "friends" to another world, is made a slave, then gladiator and rises to eventually become king. This bootleg of the movie was a good quality and kept mostly faithful to the original story. A fun watch.

4. Having a great "superbowl " sunday - Because it was so slow at work, I got sent home early and was able to go to Zac's house for a superbowl party. The food was good (pizza and chocolate cake) and the beer was cold. The game was okay. Came home and read the paper while watching a fun episode of "Iron Chef" with Mel (who won a few dollars and bragging rights, in superbowl bets ). The weather was great and I had a great day.

3. "My Babe" by Little Walter - Not too long ago I watched a movie called "Cadillac Records" and I really liked it. This was one of the songs in the movie and I've been playing it off and on all week.

2. Having three days off to hang out, watch movies and spend time with my favorite person in the world.

1. "Intimate Moments For A Sensual Evening" by Aziz Ansari - Mel and I watched this comedy special a few weeks ago and it was really funny. So, while at target, I decided to get the comedy cd. And, no lie, we have been saying lines from it all week...a funny album from a really funny dude.

So...that's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...1-25-10

For The Week Of 1-25-10

5. Having some tasty Dim Sum with Mel and My Mom on Monday night.

4. Rewind mixes - All week long, I've been in an old school rap kinda mood. I'm talking about the rap music I grew up with... 2Pac, Biggie, Bay Area Rap (Dre Dog, RBL, Too $hort)...that later extended to some mid-90's R&B (Anyone but me remember Shai ? Or the remix to "Anything" that SWV did with the Wu ? ). It was good to play some tracks that brought me back to the days when I had to take 3 buses just to go to mall with my friends, days of domino games and beeps burgers, days of Mario Kart and NBA Jam for the super nintendo. I miss those days sometimes...

3. The awesome food Mel's Dad made on Saturday - Tasty, tasty meal. And ...I'd be lying if I said that one of my favorite parts was the leftovers we got to take home !!

2. Hanging out, eating pizza and watching "The Royal Rumble" with Freddie and Ponch - It was fun to hang out with my friends, whom I havent seen in months. And like most great friends, it was as if we had seen eachother the other day. Lots of joking around, shit talking 'n' such....a great time.

1. Dessert Pizza - Not too long ago, I was watching a show called, "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" and they talked of a dessert pizza some high priced resturant makes. I said to myself, I could make that. And this week, I did !! With the help of a pre-made pizza dough, I threw a few tasty things (my recipe is all my own), baked for 15 min. @ 350 degrees and...a tasty treat was enjoyed by all.

So...that's it.
