Awesome party for Daniel Delaney’s video food blog, VendrTV. He had Calexico Carne Asada, Schnitzel & Things, and Wafels & Dinges parked outside, dishing out the food. I’m ashamed to say I’ve been turned off from their long lines in the past and never tried them, but now I believe. I believe in them all. One of the better juicy pork tacos I’ve eaten. The chicken schnitzel was really good. I gotta try the deep fried schnitzel burger next time. I had a bite of everyone’s waffle. Yes, eat fresh waffles! Dinges? I think I corrected someone how to pronounce it, but I think I was wrong.

Makes me think of my past prejudices against newish-hipster food carts/trucks, like when I thought it was a sad day when Calexico won their Vendy. Why can’t young people make food just as good, if not better than a poor-looking immigrant at a dirty cart? I feel as dirty as those roach carts –for not having faith.

Ran into old food blog friends like Amy & Robyn. Made many new food blog friends. Dance party. Dan’s friend tried to teach me how to salsa or tango. I thought I was amazing. She thought I was drunk. I kept forgetting her name, so I thought it was a good trick to hand her my phone to put her number in. Then I later realized she didn’t put her name. I thought I was going to text something clever to find out her name, but the next morning all I saw in my outgoing messages: “Your butt accidentally called my phone.” I guess I really wasn’t good at the tango.

    With hair as good as yours, I don’t believe there’s anything you can’t do – including the tango. And sorry to read the girl didn’t put in her name! Anyway, hope to see you again soon, Jason!

    That’s a wicked looking photo of me with the poor wafel that’s about to meet its demise. All of my food should fear me. Tremble on the way into my tummy!

    Nice meeting you on Friday! You gotta teach me those salsa/tango moves next time.

    I’m really late to the commenting party, but it was nice seeing you last week! I feel bad for missing everyone when I left with Veronica, d’oh. We’ll have to eat again some other time. I don’t dance though, so no dance party for meee.

        I don’t think Jimmy Holmes was a ݆regular guy’… his trolley had gone badly off the tracks. I don’t think he was ordinary or typical. What demons beset him, we’ll never know (although there will be no shortage of theories).One can decry the ease with which he purchased his weapons and ammunition and I am sympathetic to gun control efforts of almost any kind, but purchase them he did. And, unlike the thousands of others who purchase these lethal toys, he actually used them.
