Argentina. Art and Sandwiches.

We just got back from a month of traveling around Argentina. I have never kissed so many cheeks. There was amazing graffiti everywhere. It's like it's legal or somethin'.

But oh my gosh, I also have to tell you about a food we had practically every other day -- The Lomito Sandwich.

Of course you've never heard of it! It's so crazy and delicious. List of the ingredients, lest you want to attempt this at home...

. Beef (thin and kind of chicken fried)
. Ham
. Cheese (melted onto the ham, of course)
. Fried egg (sunny side up)
. Tomato
. Mayonnaise

You can see why this would almost bring tears to Alvaro's eyes. It's a lovely combination.

Hurry over for a peek, they're going fast.

Vote for BEES!

So I just got an email from It seems that one of my dresses is in the running for some sort of St. Patrick's Day item poll. Go here to vote for the Bees Knees Vintage! It's the KISS ME, I"M IRISH dress. I actually might be Irish, you never know.

My Thorny Past.

I was just ten years old, in fourth grade and quite ill with chicken pox when The Thorn Birds mini series was on TV for the first time. I remember it well because my sister, who gave me those dang pox, was completely fine, eating my mom's homemade cookies, drinking SQUIRT (it's practically ginger ale) and staying up late watching TV with my parents. I, on the other hand, was sick as a dog. It was terribly unfair and well, the story of my life. When I get sick, I get really sick. Luckily, it's rare.

So anyways, I was at the Oakland Library with Alvaro this last weekend when I spotted it! On video-tape! And we since we still have a VCR, I snatched it right up.

It's almost as good as I remembered it to be. You get to see a young and exceedingly handsome Richard Chamberlain in his birthday suit (from the side, of course. Very modest, those priests) and the ladies clothes are pretty good.

Lord help me, it's 4 tapes long!
