First off, I would like to thank everyone for all the wonderful
birthday wishes. I am sorry I didn't thank you all sooner, but I've
been overseas for the past two weeks trying to decompress. Birthdays
are always a weird one for me. They are always a double edged sword.
Half of me loves to be spoiled in one form or another, as we all do,

and "plastic-fantastic" people. I guess I'm a New Yorker at heart. It's
a completely different planet then L.A. I decided that the only two
pleasures I get in L.A. are... #1 The Giant Robot store on Sawtelle:
And El Cholo. I love this restaurant! Fresh guacamole made at your
table, really good tacos, the infamous Green Tamale, and a really cool
