Don’t Go On a Juice Fast When Packing

Note to self:  don’t go on a juice fast on a major packing day.

My dear friends!!!!  My real estate agent showed my very, very clean condo to a young couple yesterday + they are interested in moving in on November 15th!!!  Well, hold your horses, y’all – we’re in the process of doing the credit check, so the deal is not done yet.  Easy does it.

Now what does that mean???  I’d better start packing, that’s what!!!  Today was going to be my big packing bonanza.  I already moved a huge load over the weekend, but today was going to be the day!!!  So, what did I decide to do?  Yes, I am a genius!  I decided to do a juice fast on today of all days!!!  Reeeeeal smart.  Do you want to see what I accomplished at around 2:30? 

 

 

One. Measly. Box.

Hey!!!  I’m not proud about it!!!  In fact, I’m downright ashamed!!!

 

 

 

 

 

I juiced four times today with my bomb-ass Braun juicer that I bought for $3 at the Buddhist temple bargain sale across the street from me.  It was only used once + clean as a whistle!  If I could only buy Japanese + German made appliances + goods for the rest of my life, I’d be happy. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Juicers take up a lot of fresh veggies.  Be prepared, people.  Get your chop on the day before.  Then you won’t be as apt to abandon the torture.

 

 

 

 

 

I feel disoriented, super fatigued, I looked at a picture of Jeff on my screen saver + almost started crying + sometimes I say to myself, “did it just get really cold in here?”.  I’m a mess, y’all!!!  In my defense, I did some filing + bills.  But, I am so out of it, that when I went to mail my bills, I closed the door without keys + locked myself out of the condo.  My condo manager, ol’ reliable Shin-san had to let me back in.  What a loser.  This is how I feel:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For my last “meal”, I eased myself out of the veggie juicing by indulging in a bowl of instant miso soup.  It was the best bowl of miso soup I’ve EVER HAD IN MY LIFE.  What savory delight!!!!!!!!  I destroyed that bowl!!!! 

 

 

That may look like a boring bowl of miso soup, but believe me dear readers when I tell you it was salty heaven!!!!  Do not take for granted the humble liquid gold that is miso soup!!!  I’m going to try + make this juice fast a once a week routine, but I’ll have to get back to you on that one.  I’m not going to lie.  It was rough.

 

 

 

Well, on a happy side note, I’ve received our marriage certificate + my FBI report!!!  Yaaaaay!!!  I’m officially not a criminal!!!  A copy of these two documents shall be added to my immigration application!  Getting closer!!!!

Rings + Korean Spas – as girlie as I get

RINGS

Today my awesome, most fabulous jewelry friend, Alex Hopp stopped by Little Tokyo to show me the final samples of our rings!!!  Perfection!  It’s been a really special experience having Alex be the one making our custom rings.  She’s smart, funny as hell + is like a living cartoon character with insane, gorgeous beaming red hair.  Oh, + she loves thrift store shopping.  Jeff + I have been to her studio in San Diego + watched her cut, solder + brush.  AND she showed us a whole cabinet full of hammers.  How cool is that?!  But no, she’s not related to Thor, if you were wondering.

 

 

 

 

 

The rings are the ridgeline of Fortress Mountain – the mountains in the Canadian Rockies where Jeff + I  met on while we were working on Inception.  Dreamy!!!  Mine is more simple + abstract, while Jeff’s is detailed + realistic to the mountain range.  These are the samples to be cast + dipped!  Hizzah!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPA

Later tonight my fabulous Korean gal pal Debbie took me to my first Korean spa experience at Natura Spa. http://natura-spa.com/  Oh, have to give a shout out to my fabulous Chinese gal pal Kim Shek from Brooklyn who recommended Natura to me in the first place.  What up, Kim???!!!  I thought, might as well get my skin rubbed down before I bum people out with my scaly skin in Hawaii.  I was so dry I looked like a Galapagos dragon.  For real.  Check me out before:

 

 

 

 

So, the deal is you go to the front + pay.  They give you a locker key with a number. In the locker is towels + a robe.  Fully undress + enter the bath house.  That’s where you get full on nekkid to the world.  But it’s cool because there’s ladies of all shapes, sizes + colors.  First take a shower (bring your own face soap, lotions + face creams, etc. if you so desire).  Then while you wait for your number (the number of your locker) to be called by the scrubbing ladies you can jump into the jacuzzi, dry sauna + other extremely hot rooms.  When you get scrubbed, you really, really get your money’s worth!!!  These ladies GO TO TOWN!!!!!!  GO TO TOWN!!!  I had so much skin coming off of my body, I could feel it on the bed surrounding me.  It was like as Debbie said, eraser shavings.  And I mean chunks.  Dizgusting, y’all.  There is no nook or cranny or stone unturned on your body.  They really get in there if you know what I mean.  And very thorough because they scrubbed the front twice, the back side twice + both of your sides.  AND WAIT!!! THERE’S MORE!!!!!  Your hair will get shampooed + conditioned, your face lightly massaged + your entire body lightly massaged + lotioned up!!!  All this for $45!!!!  Check me out now:
