Guess Who Dyed Hair Last Night?

I mean... it's not that hard to guess. (At least, I hope not.) If it is, that's just plain ol' sad.

In case you need it to be spelled out... I-D-Y-E-D-M-Y-H-A-I-R. Blue, if you must know. Last night. Uhuh.

Well... before that... Heidi and I decided to walk the dogs while Nate was at band practice... so we headed down to Divisadero for some BURGERS at the Acme Burgerhaus. I had the "Roman Burger"... I can't remember what was in it, but it sure was good.

We then watched "Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog" and llaaaauuugggghhhheeeddd. Not quite in that manner, but... we laughed?

THEN CAME THE HAIR DYE. It was messy. My scalp is blue in some spots. My arm is blue for some reason. Heidi managed to get pink hair dye on her stomach. Only comment? We have got mad "skillz" man. Maaaad skillz.

Love,
Henna

I'M FINALLY UPDATED.

YAYYYY! I gave you what you wanted. All the posts. Every single bleeding day. Now they are here for your visual enjoyment.

Enjoy. Please. Don't make these hours of work go to waste. It would make me cry. Well, maybe I wouldn't cry, but I'd certainly have a miffed expression.

Today I woke up at noon. (Ah, to be a teenager, how delightful.) So I decided to make dinner. Off to Clement Street I went! Well, first I had to stop off at Claire's to see if they sold earrings that would match the ones they stabbed through my ears. They didn't. Oh well. However, I had to suck it up and move on. I was on an expedition to make....

DAVID AUERBACH'S BACHELOR CHICKEN


  • 1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup
  • 1 can of Cream of Celery soup
  • 1 can of French Onion soup
  • 2 1/2 cups of plain white rice
  • 1 1/2 lbs of chicken breast
  • One 9x12 pan
Throw it all in the pan. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cover pan with tin foil. Cook for an hour. Eat.

So I bought some of my foods at the asian market mentioned in several other posts. And I got myself my steamed pork buns and was sitting at the bus stop, waiting for the 2-Clement to show up. 

First off, I forgot to mention that the bus driver on my way to Clement looked skeptical when I paid the 17 and under fare... now back to my story.

Little underaged me was sitting there, eating my pork bun and giving the crumbs to the awesome bird in front of me. (I had to feed it. It had the same color eyes as mine.) I looked up and there was this guy standing nearby. 
Not so odd, this is a bus stop after all... However, he was looking right at me when I looked up at him and then smiled.

"Hi! How are you?" said the man.
"Good?" I am very confused at this point. Strangers are not usually this friendly.
"You have very pretty eyes!" I don't think he noticed that this comment caused me to roll my "very pretty eyes". (And people wonder why I always wear sunglasses on the bus. Hmph.)

I think he was 30. Today was my day for looking older I guess...

(Mom, start breathing again. Look, I'm posting. I am not locked up in a deserted warehouse with WiFi typing a ransom note to you... Breath for me? Thank you. I'm perfectly safe.)

We watched True Blood during dinner... again.

Love,
Henna

Orange Bleached Hair? (8.10.10)

Tuesday night! The night to start the hair dying process! (Now ain't that something exciting?) Heidi purchased Splat hair dye in a lovely pink color. And GUESS WHAT? ("What?" echoes an ever willing chorus of excited voices...) We bleached our hair! Now, seeing as Heidi is blondish, she didn't have to bleach for very long. I, on the other hand, had to have the nasty blue stuff in my hair for a good 70 minutes before it got to a nice... well... a nice... orange-y blonde-y bleached color?

It looked pretty awesome.

Except... we didn't really finish. My hair is still that orange-y blonde-y bleached color. Quite attractive. Maybe I'll just keep it that way.

Throughout this, we ate Kasa Indian take out while watching True Blood. Some evenings never change do they? :)

Love,
Henna

EMERGENCY! HUGE MONDAY CROWD! (8.9.10)

Oh Mondays, how monotonous you usually are. Especially when I have a day off.
Except for this Monday. I got a phone call around 12:30.
"HENNA! WE'RE PACKED! TAKE A CAB!"

I had just woken up. Ugh. So I took a shower, called a cab, got in, drove downtown... etc. And HOLY %&$^! It was actually busy during a Monday lunch! I almost fell over. But I didn't.

I worked. :P

Love,

I Punched A Couple Of Holes In My Ears (8.8.10)

Heidi's phone mysteriously EXPLODED (not really, just cracked) so we went to the Sprint store to get her a new one. It took over 2 hours for them to figure out how to get the contacts off her phone and for her to get a new one. (Of course, she had to say VERY LOUDLY, "Maybe I should just get an IPHONE" before anyone would help her." Pathetic, I know.)

While we were waiting, I got a phone call. David managed to lock himself out. So I invited him over to the Sprint store/ Westfield Mall to chill with us. And when did he get there? The second after I got the second earring through my left ear. That's right. I got two more holes in my ear! Wooooo!

My ears are doing wonderfully, thank you for asking. A little sore, but wouldn't you be sore if you had sharp things jabbed in you?

David came back with us and Heidi cooked a great Moroccan dish with couscous, chicken (that I found at the asian market), potatoes, zucchini, and a dash of FUNK. (Sorry, that's a different meal.)

And we watched True Blood.

Henna

It's The Big Cheese's Birthday. And Don't You Forget It! (8.7.10)

Saturday was a ridiculous day at work. Well... it was like a Saturday. So many orders for the Sunday Brunch (honeyed chevre, ginger-fig chutney, french toast, and BROWN SUGAR BOURBON SAUCE). Yum.

However, this Saturday, it was different. IT WAS NATE'S BIRTHDAY! The big... (well, you'll have to ask him his age himself...) So after work, I headed home to make myself older. To... "put on my face" as one of my relatives was known to say. David and I ordered a cab to get to the first part of Nate's birthday bash; The Kabuki Sundance Theatre. The Kabuki Sundance Theatre is an independent theater, so it costs a little bit more to see a movie there. However, you get to select your own seat beforehand and the seats are super comfy. (Hooray for super comfy theater chairs. I can remember that one time watching Dark Knight...let's not get into that know.  Zoe, remember that lovely, lovely movie?)

We watched the movie Cyrus. The advertised catch phrase is: "John met the woman of his dreams, then he met her son." Very true. Funny movie.. go see it...

After the movie, it was time to get some eats. FOOD. Yes. So we headed over to Fat Angel. Mom, I drank water.

We got back at... 1? Maybe? I went right to sleep. Hooray! Happy birthday Big Cheese!

Love,
Henna

Thank God It's Friday, Right Guys? (8.6.10)

On Friday, I worked :) However, I still needed to get Nate a birthday present. Due to his great love of the HBO show True Blood... I figured I'd head over to a Hot Topic and grab him a 4-pack of Tru Blood (an energy drink modeled after the artificial blood drinks in the show). I went a couple days before and they didn't have any (ridiculous, right?)
So off I went to Clement Street again! (They sell the True Blood books. Heh heh.) However, after making my purchases, I was planning on making dinner again! Now what should we eat? Wandering around, I bought myself another steamed pork bun to help me think. Aha! Artichokes and fish! (I'm so smart.) So off I went to find the asian market on Clement. I milled around for about 2 hours before I decided on dinner.
I bought noodles, microwave-able rice (for my lunches sometime), aloe juice, several pounds of chicken drumsticks, 1lb of red snapper, 4 artichokes, a couple of oranges (for a couple of Blood and Sand cocktails). Now, this sounds expensive, but in reality, it was under 20 bucks. I love asian markets.
Thankfully, David (Nate's cousin) picked me up and bought a few more things he thought was needed for dinner (beer and ice cream mochi). We watched True Blood.

Love,
Henna

Day Off! (Post for 8.5.10)

On Thursday last week, I had the day off! So what did I do? Sleep, of course.

When I rousted myself from bed, I decided today would be a perfect day to visit Clement Street, home of Green Apple Books. I waited at the Buena Vista East bus stop for the 71 to get to Market Street. There's a bus stop to get to Clement right up the street from Second. And oddly enough, the bus I was taking to get to Clement was the 2! (Not that exciting...)
I had absolutely no idea where I was supposed to get off to get to Green Apple Books. Yay me. I was convinced I was going to spend several hours searching around and then get hopelessly (yes, hopelessly) lost. As usual. BUT I DIDN'T! (Applause please.) There was a stop right in front of the store. I felt like destiny had taken my aside and said, "Henna, today is not your day to get lost. Maybe tomorrow. Enjoy it."

Green Apple Books was epic. Books lined the shelves with them thrown in hodgepodge everywhere. It was like, book heaven. (Or Book Nirvana. Yeaaaa... that sounds significantly cooler.)

I bought a couple of books before I left (Piers Anthony and Mercedes Lackey books...) and decided to wander until I found good food to eat. And Clement Street happens to have a lot of dim sum. (YUM!)

As I was walking, I happened upon a place called Clement BBQ that had GIANT peking ducks in the window. As you all know, I am crazy for peking duck. Except not really, they just look really cool in windows. However, the next store window (which happened to be attached to the first) had some more interesting food inside. STEAMED PORK BUNSChar Siu Bao (steamed pork buns) happen to be my favorite type of dim sum. So I got two. Now, that picture is not one that I took, however, the size is comparable. They were almost the size of my head. (WHOA!) And so good. So, so good.


I decided it would be a good idea to get to the bus stop because I had gotten a text that we'd eat dinner on a new place outside the stadium. And (lo and behold!) right behind the bus stop was ANOTHER dim sum place. The bus wasn't due to arrive for another four minutes, so I ran inside for my desert... a LOTUS SEED BUN! As I was paying 50 cents (did I mention I got a whole mean for under 3 bucks?) for my lotus bun, the bus arrived. Jumping on, I started making my way back to Market Street.


The new place near the Stadium was actually having a party before their opening in the next few days. It was a mexican sports bar. Huge, very nice... but not very fun. So we left before eating and went to Tres Agaves instead. I had the ribs. They were so yummy :).
