Zee Avi

I had such a great date with Ira last night. I've been watching this girl, Zee Avi on Youtube for about a year now and she actually got signed and her CD came out this past Tuesday. Then, she was doing a show at the Rickshaw Stop in SF. I was dying to see her, but I couldn't buy the pre-tickets online. Ira decided to do it for me so we went after work. I hate the city, so it didn't make it any better that we couldn't find parking and got lost for awhile, which made me think we were late.

Luckily we were 30 minutes early. We even got to see her come out before the show. She's actually short like me. =) Anyways, it was a great show. I even saw someone from MVA and Andres' friend. She sounds even better in person. She sang songs from her CD, did a few covers, and even played a song she only sings live. The only thing that sucked was that I couldn't see her. Everyone crowded around and stood up, so all I saw was a bunch of peoples back and the back of their head. Regardless, it was great. After the show, she came out and did a signing. We even got to take pics with her. That will be posted soon.

After the show we were pretty hungry but wanted to get out of the city. We ended up going to Santa Ramen in San Mateo. Ira has been wanting to take me there for awhile now. It was pretty yummy.

Overall, it was a great date. Very satisfied.

Zee Avi

I found this girl on youtube awhile back, and I started following her on youtube for her new songs. What caught my eye was her ukulele and how she'd play and sing but only show the guitar and her lips. Not her face. Purely so that people can hear her and not focus on what she looks like. She sings awesome! She has made me want to learn how to play from the start. Now, she's actually got a CD coming out in a few weeks. I'm pretty obsessed. I love her soulful voice. Plus, now I found out she's going to be in SF this month! $10. I hate SF, but I will suffer to go check her out! Maybe I can make our dentist appointment the same day so that we can just take the whole day off. WHOOHOO! I'm seriously very excited.

Food Proportions

I've had way too much food in one weekend.
  • Friday night - Brazilian buffet. 14 types of meat in the menu. Well, 13 because one was pineapple. =)
  • Saturday - Family Iron Chef. Each couple had to make an appetizer, entree and a dessert. That's 12 plates of food. Oh yea, plus cake for Ira's birthday.
  • Sunday - More food at the in-laws. Mmm. Enchiladas.
I must start working on proportions. That, and working out. My goal is to have a completely fit and healthy body for the wedding.
