Hammy's In Heat, The Gypsy Breasts and the Maronite Lebanese Festival

I am still alive. Strep is almost banished with two more days of antibiotics. To quench your thirst for the answers, here's how Lizzy survived the OHD, Part 2:

1. I stayed at my friend Laura's house (she has air conditioning) and ate Hammy's Pizza, which I've always wanted to order because hellooooo, they deliver until 4 am and they will even bring you a movie. How cool is that. As it happened, we ordered pizza at 8 at night and we didn't need a movie because we were watching Michael Phelps win his 8th gold medal. Oh and we also watched this little movie: In Search of a Midnight Kiss. I think I liked it. It was about internet dating. I could relate. Except for the part where they got together.

2. I went to Nordstrom and had the MAC girl give me new eyes. "You only wear ONE color on your eyes???" "I can tell what you do to your eyes, you don't even have to tell me. My roommate does the same thing." "Do you even wear eye liner?" $44 later, I had eye cream and concealer. What the hell. It was air conditioned.

3. Ate dinner at The Gypsy, where the waitress had a very low cut blouse on, with, let's just say, ummmmm... well, let's just say that 3 women were definitely not her target audience. Even so, it was such a sight that I found myself staring. Between the breasts and the American Idol-ish song on perpetual repeat, and the waiter that looked like the lead singer from the Boys Next Door, and the fact that I was getting sick with strep, I felt a little Twilight-Zone-ish. But then that seems kind of perfect for a place called The Gypsy. I did have some excellent mozzarella sticks that were housemade. I dug them.

4. As it cooled off, we found the Lebanese Food Festival at St. Sharbel Maronite Catholic Church in SE Portland. They served great food and it was fun to watch the kids play some form of a golf game. One 5 year old who was clearly in charge said to a smaller child, "That is unacceptable. What makes you think that is okay?" Ahhhh, memories.


Hey, It's Ansley said...

Although the heat is not welcome back, it was a fun weekend of no responsibilities other than staying cool. So decadent!
