Blog Business

appetizers - bar - blogging - party

Hey guys! I’m in the midst of a switch over from wordpress.com to a self-hosted wordpress.org site (www.theactorsdiet.com) so apologies if this post ends up being wonky, or repeated several times.

Last night was actually more about my other blogging platform – Tumblr – where Thick Dumpling Skin lives. Abe and I were invited to a West Coast party they were hosting. I gobbled down a few snacks beforehand…

We were early, so I checked out the rest of the Courtyard Brasserie space.

The event took place in the lobby bar…

…which quickly filled up:

I ate one of every passed hors d’oeuvres – beef short rib…

…and a Chicken Skewer…

…plus, snacks galore!

There were nibbles everywhere…

…chocolate-covered caramels (there were malt balls too) and nuts…

Filled an additional napkin, and also snagged some Olives at the bar.

Back home, balanced all that sugar out with a cup of miso, while I tried to figure out my new blog home…
