I guess I was more tired that I thought. I woke up around 10:00am to the ring of my cell phone. At first I thought it was Jeffrey, but it was Anne at the school. By the time I scurried out of bed, the call went to voicemail. I called to check it. Anne needs someone to cover Pro Baking 3 on Sunday afternoon. She said she was running errands and wouldn’t be back until after 1pm. I slowly got showered and cleaned up the room. I also did a load of laundry. I was about to head out. I needed to go to Surfas and Bangkok Market to pick up some things for the IT BBQ. But before I hit Surfas, I stopped by the school to let Anne know I’ll cover the class.
I arrived at the school and Anne was on the phone (as usual). She greeted me with her usual wonderful smile as I sat down at the other desk. She asked if I got her voicemail and I said that I did and that I would be willing to cover. She was happy. I guess Rob (cute guy from the other Pro I class) wasn’t able to make it tomorrow and the 3rd class of Baking does need two TAs. Iâ€™ll be glad to see Carol. But moreover, Laura and Amy from my
Pro I class will be in this class. It will be good to see them!
While I was talking to Anne, two cute guys came in for the class that was getting underway. Jet Tila was teaching the Wok class. The two came in, smiled as they came in the door and sat themselves down. I decided I needed to get a class of water. The ice machine was in the back, so I decided I needed to go back there so I could get a glance at the guys again! I know…. I know…. no fraternizing with the students.
I went to Surfas and bought some supplies. I was there about 40 minutes. This place is like Home Depot but for cooks! Then I headed over to Bangkok Market. I was in BM for about an hour, looking for a the ingredients. I spent a good chunk of time looking at a portable butane burner that they were selling in the store. Now… normally these burner sell for like $40-$60. This one was $12.00 Now , form what I could tell, there wasn’t anything different about it that it was being sold at a much lower price point. So I bought one and two butane canisters. I think the canisters are supposed to last 1 hour per can at medium flame. Something like that. I also bought my first wok! Well…I bought two. One was a 16.5″ wok and the other 13″. The goal here is to see if the 13″ wok would work with the portable burner.
By the time I got home, it was about 6:30. Mario was still not home, but had been home. I kinda took a nap and waited to Jeffrey to call. We made plans to get together around 9pm. I got to the LAX Marriott at around 9:45 and picked Jeffery up. He was wearing shorts again and I asked if he was going to get cold. It was cooler tonite than it was last nite. He said he was fine. We drove down to Long Beach and stopped off at IN and Out for a quick bite to eat. After that, we went to Fire Island. The place was crowded and the music was loud. Just what I needed. I stepped up to the bar and started with a Cuervo Gold shot and a Bud Light. I dropped the shot down and worked on the lime slice. I needed that! By the end of the evening, I had two of those shots and 3 beers. It was time to go home. Jeffery flies back to DC tomorrow, but will be back on Friday.
Its time to go beddy bye. I’m sleepy….Filed under: Food, Just Too Gay!, Personal Log
