Anyone know that song by Michelle Shocked? If I remember correctly, (it’s been a while) It’s about a woman driving all around Los Angeles trying to escape the repo man. It was running through my head through the latter half of yesterday, as I spent a lot of my time in the car (and had plans to see “Repo Men” too).
I packed a few snacks for the car ride to/from my audition.
I had the apple/lollipop on the drive back and ate the Protein Chips en route to our evening activity, along with a sandwich I slapped together in the hour I was home.
On Orowheat Rye bread – cucumber, grainy mustard, smoked turkey:
The “Repo Men” premiere was at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre:
This is such a gorgeous place for a screening. I realized this is the 3rd theater on the Hollywood strip that I’ve been to in the last 2 weeks, which is weird because we’re rarely here. I was in a “movie mood” and split a Diet Coke with Abe – can’t remember the last time I had one:
Abe and I both liked the movie – even though I am a bit squeamish about blood. That said, I just looked away at the gore-y parts and still enjoyed it.
The after-party was at The Hotel Roosevelt across the street:
At the beautiful Tropicana Poolside Bar:
There was an open bar and passed food, but I didn’t have anything. When we got back around midnight, I wanted something to satisfy my sweet tooth. Tierra Farm sent us a bounty of their products to try. Sooooo much certified organic yumminess that I cannot wait to dig into. Last night I sampled their Date Coconut Roll:
Here’s what’s in them – basically a combo of dates with shredded coconut:
I kept the coconut theme going with a cup of Decaf Coconut Chai/skim milk/vanilla stevia:
For a sugar fiend like myself, these rolls DELIVER. Much sweeter than any candy I’ve ever had. Yay.
