I went to this joint and like they have these pork skin rinds with stew meat and Beef Bourguignon stew meat and rice and some kind of white something in tons of hot juice. And then they have these purple and white looking grapes that are like a cross between a jellyfish and a grape in taste and feel and pastrys that are like candy and a little hard and stuff. And you know how... More >>
I went to this joint and like they have these pork skin rinds with stew meat and Beef Bourguignon stew meat and rice and some kind of white something in tons of hot juice. And then they have these purple and white looking grapes that are like a cross between a jellyfish and a grape in taste and feel and pastrys that are like candy and a little hard and stuff. And you know how you go Ethiopian and it's all about black pepper or hotter than Habineros and the Magaritas substitute the lime and stuff for a 5 star habinero filed down to be even hotter? And the Minority kids are thinking they are cool hanging out in the back in those big lounging chairs? Well in the Filli world it's about really super strong vinegar. It was real interesting like that Jellyfish salad restaurant with the moving insects or whatever they were on the plate that Walsh used to rave about as one of the best joints in the world. But this is not moving level food and just different in an interesting way. And the Fillis all sit around and watch their TV where the young filli ones they think are hot compete over singing Silent Night before guys come out and compete singing hook-up songs and stuff. And they have these Filli newspapers where they rate there supermodels and how they are more than just beautiful thick black hair and dark deep penetrating eyes. Except they just gave me a Lipton tea and told me to drink it but then the bill was under $10 and I ate a lot of pork skin rind- I know because I'm at home after watching the Louie where he has to take care of his sisters daughter who is adorable and obviously depressed and again he feels guilty but yet he's still a total jerk about it when she is someone you should love to help have a good time with together and as it ends and before I can find out what happens to Gustava since I'm probably not going out tonight to see the self-parody/parody of themselves/thrash metal screaming like 13 year-old band or McMurtry off-key and rambling crap solo for $30 although man he is brave to put out live footage of how bad he is in concert they do have the best scotch eggs/salad I could eat for $30 cover but every time I move my fork and knife would hit the packed crowd- although I'd be at the second show so they wouldn't rush me out before I have a chance to finish at least. No since it's too late to check up on my mother at the rehab for her hip and I woke off the couch I'll stay gross but not so I get Walsh weight but I'll do the Dorito taco thing at the Bell and watch if Walt or Gus is going to get nailed on Breaking Bad. What ever happened to great live shows like
Arcade Fire or White Stripes or Sun Ra that Kurt at Sound Exchange told me was on the wrong date on purpose so I would miss it and then gushed how they did the chants, the boogie woogie, the swing, free and 7 other styles and it was amazing and I really blew it by missing it. But they also have these like Sushi like things that are like Sushi if turned into a pound cake that are one of a kind too at this joint named after isn't it that Hobbit from Tolkien. And it's all you can eat and then you can buy jewelry and take home more deserts from the bakery and stuff too. And so now I will have the Dorito Crunch since Theos is either Lamb Wraps that I only kinda want now or like $$$ items that are worth about $ and they cheaped out the Greek Salad and I'm just not in a Katz mode now with the now packed crowd of walsh/Real Tex Mex level weight customers so you know then hopefully there will be some decent comedy or something tomorrow or I can go to the Korean place again where they have the prostitute sit with me and then all these girls are taking me to sing Kareoke and giving me watermelon and melons and telling me to take off my pants for them again. That's the deal with Houston Asian, I never know what is going to happen next. This is the kind of stuff I get from the Press or I get lost by the Just Mac N Cheese joint and I'm suddenly pushing the black chick in the slam pit at the black church and punk dancing until the black chick knocks the preacher off the stage and the music stops so she can talk in tongues to us and then we get to tell how Jesus gave us our 8th new car in 3 months after we totaled yet another one and praise God! Then the straight punk theme song starts over again. But now it's time to go to the bathroom after eating the Pork Rinds and Pork thingies. You know if I was in Austin the #1 place for white males to date and not the once worst now about 7th Houston- I might have a chick with me since oh I'm not going to get to work at Enron and get sent to marry in Newport after crying how unfair it is that Ken Lay gets to have sex with the strippers in the hot tub and be married and I'm told I'm too white to go to grad school unless I can do Computers or so advanced Math skill that the minorities can't do or am sent to law school by the firm. Man life in H-town is rough when you have to be on your own with no help and white. But at least I got to have these Pork Skin rind with Pork thingies and now i will go to the bathroom, take the dog to get the Doritos Toco thingies with Bean Borrito and Supreme/Nachos and those Cinamon things and watch Breakng Bad before I probably play Super Mario Brothers and go to sleep since between the cable news and info ads there isn't much to watch on TV and well I guess I can read my Scott Pilgrim collection. But you know I did get to buy cool jewelry for my mother and sing-along to the Kareoke show. Except at Cafe TH the kid told us what to order and I told him yeah it's pretty cool but the sisters at the main Specs do that stuff way better and with way more butter and fat brushed on it too. Have you guys ever tried it- it's the same deal as the Cafe TH ghetto sandwiches you rave about so much but with way more of that ghetto taste and feel to them and you get a cool floor show as you watch how they make them. And you can buy Ron Jeramy hot sauce there too!...
