A Whole Lot Of Not Much

Not too much exciting going on with me these days. I've been dogged with allergies this past week. So, I'm pretty tired, from the allergies and the medicines. I ended up sleeping in yesterday. We'd hoped to get up early to head down to the O.C. (ick) for a big Pet Expo. We did go, but only had about 45 minutes to run around, which was plenty to see all of the dogs, a few bunnies, and some sleeping hamsters. I even purchased yet another "remove the pee from your carpet" product that I hope works. Nothing else really has in the past. (Little Guy has a problem).

After the animal fair, we headed over to the Newport Beach Film Festival at Fashion Island. Eric has a short film ("The American Infant") in the festival on Monday. There really wasn't anything we were interested in seeing, so we head north on PCH and stopped in Long Beach for dinner. Ribs seemed in order, so we ate at Lucille's Smokehouse and had some really good food, including fried dill pickles. Yum!

There are a couple of cool events I'm planning to attend tomorrow. It's officially Spring and time for the Brewery Spring Artwalk. I always enjoy checking out what's going on at this art colony near downtown. In the evening, I'm attending a benefit show called The Color of We, a hip-hop dance show presented by Culture Shock L.A. I know, you didn't think I was part of the hip-hop world, did you? Well, I'm not, but I'm good friends with the company director of the Culture Shock dance troupe, as well as one of the other dancers.

And now, for a nap...

One of my dogs, Little Guy, does from time to time. He's retarded.

Being from the south, fried pickles are pretty standard fare. They're OK if you have some really spicy cajun dip for them.

On another forum I read with people from all over the world, we were asked where we would take a visitor to give them a really regional meal. My vote was for North Alabama was a trip to "Top O' The River", where you can have fried catfish filets, cornbread, slaw, pickled onions, fried pickles, turnip greens and a potato of your choice while drinking iced tea on a deck overlooking Guntersville Lake on the Tennessee River. Mmmm. Maybe I need to head over there this weekend...

The first place I ever had fried pickles was at Cock of the Walk in Mobile. I've now found a couple of places here in L.A. to get them. Yum! It was also rare and nice to be able to order 'sweet tea' at a restaurant!
