>Maybe if I win the lottery tonight, I can donate some and the rest I can adopt as many cats as I want and live a big mansion in Burnaby with 10 cars.

I don’t think I’d give any to my family, maybe my friends tho.

>El Mariachi Mexican Restaurant

We need a quick bite to eat so decided to try the newly opened mexican joint that previously was called El Mexico or something. I previously tried lunch at El Mexico last year and I found it mediocre so I was skeptical about the new owners.

Sad to say, I was disappointed. We arrived at 6.45 and waited 10 mins for our server to get our orders. Mind you there was 1 server and 1 mgr? and they kept walking back and forth from the tables to the cash area getting drinks. It was clear to us there was no experience here. It seems they went to a table, forget something came back to the cash, grabbed something, went back to the table, went to another table, went back to the cash and back and forth every minute. It was very annoying.

After waiting 10 mins waiting, the waitress got our order and 5 mins later we got the compliementary chips. It was ok, the salsa and salsa verde were good. We ordered chicken fajitas, bbq pork and nachos as appy. I would expect an appy to come out usually 10mins from ordering. This wasn’t the case, we got our nachos 25 mins later. We gobbled it up, and waited another 15-20 mins for our dishes. The BBQ pork in adobo sauce was basically vingery ketchup sauce poured on top of BBQ ribs. gross. My chicken fajitas looked like a chinese stir-fry with “red” sauce, bland, and full of water collected on the side of my dish. It came with beans which were nice and a dry cup of mexican rice. We had to ask for the tortillas as well.

Over an hour later, we were very disappointed, late and will never eat mexican food in a restaurant ever again. We have yet to try Dona Cata which I heard its ok.

I’ll take Taco Del Mar anyday.

I didn’t bother taking pics because I didn’t want to waste space on my blackberry, plus you’d barf if you saw the food.


>Retro plush dolls May 4, 2009

Again my mom is on her menopausal rage and while I’m home not working, she’s trying get out her frustrations by cleaning out this entire house. Today she started on the utility room, which means the room under the stairs.

She grabbed 3 bags of my plush dolls I’ve kept over the last 25 yrs. Here’s a few I’ve kept around! I donated the rest~

(From left to right Theodore from Alvin and The Chipmunks(bought at Woolco), Smurfette, Twinkle from Rainbow Bright(bought at Woolco) and Papa Smurf. Above is Odie the Pound Puppy(probably brought at Sears) Also the Cabbage Patch Doll .. ugh.

>Chicken Fried Chicken

>My cat is the most moodiest cat that ever lived. He is your typical cat where he doesn’t remember what happened 5 seconds before. I usually call him something related to the poultry family because he is so chicken over everything. He’s chicken and I love fried chicken so I usually call my cat the following names, Chicken Fried Chicken, Chicken McNuggets, Mister Fizzles, Furtastic, Furball, Flea, Turkey, Sheckie Shabass, Moomoo, Mister Murphy, Bad Kitteh, Bad Furball, Angry Kitteh, or I just shriek cause I love him so cute.

I don’t know what I’ll do if I lose him, I’ll probably give him the most grandest funeral. He’s the reason my parents are still together at this point. I love Angry Kitteh!


>Family Guy & Lauren Conrad May 2, 2009

Filed under: Shopper — theeverydayshopper @ 9:14 am


Ahhh.. the best of both worlds. I love Family Guy(but not as much as I love The Simpsons), Seth McFarlane is a comic genius. I totally get family guy and its inside jokes.. you gotta be pretty up to date with anything mainstream to understand family guy.

I admit, I love The Hills. Yes its a total waste of time but really for me its a 30 minute oasis to get away from my own reality.

Lauren Conrad will be lending her voice to the next Family Guy episode on Fox May 3rd. Can’t wait for it !!!
