A Little Buenos Aires On A Saturday Night

"Buy me what I want or you lose an eye!" Eugenio y Fernando with la torta de cumpleanos Cake and sparklers La Milonguita con un copa de vino Malbec.. muy bien!
Sarah y Eugenio
My housemate, Sarah has just begun dating a man from Uruguay. It was his birthday on Saturday and he kindly invited us both to his birthday shindig which was held at El Gaucho Argentinean grill on Nicholson St, Nth Carlton. It was nice to be surrounded by Argentinos and South Americans in general again.
Sooo good to eat parrilla again! My bife de chorizo wasn't as good as I hoped it would be as it wasn't cooked 'a punto' (medium rare). I did try something that I didn't when I was in B's A's and that was the offal platter. It wasn't too bad but I found I couldn't eat that much of it and also tried the famous morcilla (blood sausage) which is actually quite tasty!
I was meant to meet up with other people at Yah Yah's in Collingwood to see The Shimmys final gig but I was having such a good time at El Gaucho, I sent a text and cancelled. The group of people were all so friendly and I was enjoying the conversation and natural warmth of the people there. I'll definatly go back there to try other cuts of meat and throw back a few more glasses of that fabulous Malbec...

Me No Gusta

I've been in a snit lately. Someone's slipped me worm sandwich. I've been trying to think of good things to write about but I've been in such a dark mood, all I can think of are things that annoy me. So I thought-why not just make a list of things I don't like and just get my ya ya's out? Here's my list in no particular order;
  • David Koch and Mel Doyle
  • Suburbia
  • Most television
  • Conservatism
  • Politicians
  • Whingers (a bit rich considering this sounds a bit whiney)
  • Comic Sans Font
  • Modern day 'fashion'
  • Bad Manners
  • Fast Food
  • Guys who wear their jeans at half mast revealing undies and arse crack
  • Crap beer
  • McDonalds
  • Andrew Bolt
  • Daryl Somers
  • Top forty shizen music
  • Bad coffee
  • People with no imagination
  • Wankers
  • Hippies
  • Corporations
  • Cliches
  • The fact that my mum never shuts the fuck up
  • High rentals in good areas thus not allowing me to live alone on my crap salary
  • Spiro from the FSU for not giving me a job that should have been mine
  • Stupid interviewing techniques that some fucked up Americans thought is the way forward for employing people. Kill it.
  • The guy who was meant to have moved out of the house I'm moving into a month ago thus causing me to be homeless longer than I needed to be. You had better be out by Monday you fucker or I'm coming after you with a baseball bat.
  • That I'm not in Buenos Aires
  • That I'm still working here
  • Docklands
  • Chain Stores
  • Krispy Kreme
  • Tabloid Magazines
  • The Herald Sun
