I visited Momoberry on Labor Day, and here are some pics I took of the inside of the store and the goods for sale. I was totally lusting after the ukelele but forgot to take a picture of it, they had ukelele + guitars on display.

Drove to LA and visited friends, SC, and Sanrio stores (not necessarily in that order).
Spent a lot and had a lot of fun, as usual. Totally lusting after the HK ukelele but I didn't get it.

Mood: tired

Had a fun weekend in LV. Drank too much the first two nights, so I took it easy the 3rd. Lost money but had fun gambling, ogling waitresses, and drinking. Visited an online friend at her casino and got to ask her "Where Are You From?!"
Went to CH2, didn't find a dancer that I was looking for, but found a different one that did an acceptable dance.
Got a bad beat on the flight back, it got delayed 4 hours and then cancelled. At that point there were no more seats available on any airline, so they paid for a hotel room. "Would you like Super8 or Amerisuites? You need to have a credit card for Amerisuites, even though they won't charge it for the room they need it for incidentals." I am so old, I didn't even go out partying again with the extra night stay.

Haven't updated in a while. Work has been busy, we finally went live on a project that has been going on for over a year (I joined partway thru).
Went to the lapidary and jewelry studio this weekend. Bought some rocks at an estate sale at the lapidary studio. Didn't get any work done, I wasn't in the mood and couldn't concentrate. Sunday was a "do-over" day at the jewelry studio. I messed up a piece and was trying to fix it, and made it worse, so I restarted the project :-P One of these days I am going to get good enough control with the torch, and fuse the metal the way that I want!
Went to the club cuz my friend was visiting from out of town. I mentioned to a dancer that one of the others had been dancing for more than 5 years, and claimed there were plenty more. Then I started naming them and realized there were only 2 or 3 others like that. Lots of faves have been moving on, or getting ready to move on :(
Build a Bear had "build a Hello Kitty" this weekend so I went. I also told all of my friends that love HK about it. I tried to make a "goth" one, I had this funny conversation with one of the staff. "Do you have any dark color panties for HK?" "Sorry, we only have the HK ones and white ones. Most of our customers are 8yo and don't really go for black" He managed to find some white satin ones that went with the evening gown. Later on I'll have to figure out how to sew my own black ribbon and make some sort of fishnet to put for the arms/legs.

You know some stuff. Chances are you're one of those counter-culture hybrids like goth-punk,electro-goth,or nature-goth.You like the gothic counter-culture and you seek out the bits you like most.I bet you love Tim Burton movies.Chances are you've never seen Switchblade Symphony live before they broke up but you may own a CD.Hey-Tapping the Vein still tours!Your dream profession is probably something where you have total control like owning your own buisness or freelance artist.

Went two weekends in a row. Had fun but also felt a bit jaded. Again. time for a brief hiatus.

Several of my faves were "tipsy", which made for a more amusing dance. I will be giving them shit about certain things said, later.
Saw a pr0n star I had been waiting for, it was a bit anticlimactic. I think that she has a lot of makeup in the movies/internet pics, or else she is already past her peak :(

Been going to fitness classes at the gym and they are starting to pay off! No weight loss yet but definite improvement in muscle tone, several friends/acquaintances have commented. I have set some medium-term goals for year end, hopefully I can achieve them.

I've been baking lately. I've figured out that the key to baking and not gaining weight, is to give away the baked goods ;)

Went to the jewelry studio and lapidary studio a lot this weekend, got some stuff done, yay.

Went to the club. Spent more $ than intended. Got to see an old fave that only works day shift. Lots of new girls, not many that fit my profile.

Tried to make an ingredient which involved cooking some rice flour in the oven. I tried using the bottom rack in my oven which was a BIG mistake as I set off the fire alarm... it was too warm in that part of the oven. I don't think any recipes use burned flour... :-P

Made a double club visit last weekend. Spent too much money but had a lot of fun. Night started out at GC, visiting a dancer before her bday. Followed up with a new Filipina dancer that reminded me of an old favorite. I was planning to go but one very tipsy dancer that I liked came up and asked me to "take advantage of her", how can you turn that down?
Afterwards went to the CH to sober up and get more dances. Got dances from several faves, missed the Pr0n star Gia Paloma. Apparently she inserted a baseball bat (!) during her show.

Took the day off work Friday and worked the annual show for the mineral/gem society I belong to. It was a bad idea to sign up for two security shifts in a row, I was walking around the hall for 4 hours.
Afterwards I walked around more slowly and bought some slabs to make cabochons. I need to sell some of this jewelry, I spent more than my budget. Either that, or acknowledge that my jewelry hobby just got more expensive per month :-P
Saturday I made a stop in Chinatown. My favorite dish was not as good as it used to be, I think they changed chefs. I did manage to find some "lye water", which one of my recipes calls for. I've now managed to get all the ingredients, I can't wait to try out the recipe!
Did some DDR tonight and my stamina has improved a lot, go me!

I decided to cook some potstickers tonight. Went for it and even made some of the wrappers from scratch! Potstickers hot and fresh from the pan, so tasty!

Something is wrong when you notice the french manicure on her nails, more than the rest of her body....
Night started out ok with 2 faves, but other faves were busy and I ended up just chilling watching the stage show for a few hours. A few maybes were in the club but they didn't ask me, and I didn't feel like seeking them out.

Went to the club last night. Lots of fun. Fricking ATM machine, bank I used to go to for cash got bought by Washington Mutual. Didn't know which other banks I wouldn't have to pay a fee so I paid WM my $1.50 to get cash out.
Teanna Kai is a hottie. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teanna_Kai
Didn't really talk to her much, we didn't connect. But she is in good shape and has long hair, always a plus.
Again I didn't make it thru the entire list of favorite dancers, but It was ok. At one point I was in the booth and my cel phone rang. I ignored it because I suspected I knew who it was (another dancer). She was worried I had left the building and was going to bitch at me if I did ;) Later on we caught up on some gossip, and she mentioned that another favorite of mine asked her "Did you see where that Asian guy with long hair went?" At that point she decided I was probably still in the booths and had to resist saying "get in line, there is a waiting list!"
Went to the jewelry studio Fri night and Sun day (after sleeping in). Went to the lapidary studio Sat day. Got lots of work done, but somehow I never get done as much as I had hoped... luckily I don't have any projects with a deadline. One dancer did ask for a pair of earrings, but her birthday has already gone past... I warned her it might take a few months ;)

Friend came up from LA and we went to the club. We met at the club and then went for dinner. I told him I was in trouble because there were at least 5 dancers I liked on the roster, and a bunch of others that might show up. There ended up being 10... needless to say, I didn't have the time or money to get dances with all of them.
We had this amusing conversation about how his first time visiting that club (many years ago), he saw this patron come in, and all the dancers, bouncers, managers came over and said hi. He didn't know what to think about it. And now he is that guy. ;)
Lots of turnover since he left the area about 3 years ago, unfortunately for him not too many busty blondes. He still found some dancers he liked with other body types/hair color.
I made sure to leave at 2 this time so I wouldn't get a parking ticket. Shit, I haven't paid that other one, need to go do that before the fine increases more...

I actually signed up for 2, which is a good thing cuz I only did DDR twice last week.
First class caused a lot of pain... I have no stamina. Towards the end of the class I was only doing about half the exercises and panting for breath the other half. We'll see how sore I feel tomorrow. Hopefully things improve over time.

Subject:weight gain, exercise plan
Security:Public

I gained 5 lbs in Jan... free food is yummy but also full of calories. So for now the plan is no more desserts at lunch until those 5 lbs go away, and I am starting an exercise plan... more Dance Dance Revolution! I'm also going to sign up for some fitness classes at work. Hopefully those two things reverse the trend.

Been to the club two weeks in a row. Last weekend I got there late, was playing board games and it ran really late. But I rushed over to the club so I could see the Porn Feature Lucy Lee. She is pretty, but didn't do that much interaction on stage. She did deepthroat and insert a huge dildo though. Since I got there so late I only got a few dances. Somehow I keep spending a lot anyways.
Work is ok. I am mostly ramped up but still feel like I am behind. I think everyone feels peer pressure to work hard at this company. At least there's free food...

Work going ok. Still getting settled in/ramped up, but I feel like I can start contributing now. Unfortunately I think the project was behind schedule before I started, so we'll see what happens.
No club visit last week, although was tempted to for NYE since a fave was working. But I didn't want to deal with late nite drunks or getting an overpriced hotel room. I might go tomorrow depending on who shows up on the website schedules...
