Too Much Flavor

Michelle and I have been looking for a place to live recently. We’ve decided on living on the West Side for a while and renting rather than jumping into a home in a gated community with a good school district. We’re not even thirty yet!

Yesterday we stopped around the Culver City area to look around, and we like it. Well, what we really like is happy hour in Downtown Culver City.

Korean tacos. This is a new one at Gyenari. Someone’s still trying to ride the Kogi train (truck?).

After a quick snack and a few drinks, we wanted another Kogi tie in, so we decided on dinner with some friends at Chego.

Tiny’s Prime Rib Rice Bowl.

One Chubby Pork Belly Bowl.

Buttered Kimchi Chow with added pork belly.

These bowls are actually quite large. It’s a solid meal with tons of flavor, possibly too much flavor. Is there such a thing? I feel like when eating this it was as if someone turned the amp to eleven while walking out of a strip club at 7:30 AM and realizing the sun is out, shining straight into your face. I bet with a pot of rice, I can stretch this into three large meals still full of flavor.

Buy a House. Get a Wife.

The Chinese are always getting into crazy schemes with their crazy business practices. They are trying a “buy a house, get a wife free” business proposition. I think they might get more business if they offer to take your wife when you buy a house.

I love that someone noted, ” the girls on offer are not that attractive.” Sign me up!

Furnishing the New Home

I’ve been sick three times this year, enough to put me into the bed. Normally I am only sick once a year for half a week. This is getting annoying. This latest bout took me home a couple hours early on Friday, leaving me in bed until Saturday morning. I would have stayed there, but this weekend was our weekend to move our furniture to the new home.

Living room couches are gone. The piano is my brother’s to take.

The dining room set is gone too.

The goldfish barrel was a much easier move than I originally anticipated. All the goldfish are doing great in their new home. The 20 gallon tank made the move as well, and all the Dwarf Crayfish are doing fine as well.

Almost all the big pieces of furniture have been moved, but that is the easy part. Living twenty two years in one place, you collect a lot of junk. We have multiple boxes in the garage and attic of Transformers, Star Wars, and other toys that my brother and I used to play with when we were younger. My mom also saved boxes of our school awards. For some unknown reason my brother’s name is on twice as many boxes as mine, probably just a mislabeling. All these little things are going to be a pain in the butt to move.

Michelle enjoyed the view from the new house.

Michelle was tired from all the moving she didn’t do. She was kind enough to test out my new bed.
