Here is the link to the their website. http://kogibbq.com/ It looks like the truck will be in Torrance Saturday night so I might have to check it out and see what the hype is about. People follow Kogi on Twitter to see where the trucks are at. Oh, it's great that the trucks are called Roja and Verde. :)

I had to post pictures of some snow to feel cooler...yeah I feel better already.
Oh and I will be heading to Vegas next week to celebrate Kat's birthday so we can expect desert heat too. Lots of stuff going on...my little mini trip then Hector will be going to China for a week.

Luckily for us, that leaves 2 other TVs in the house to watch my usual shows. I think the DVR should still record for later viewing but I have certain shows on one DVR and other shows on the bedroom TV. :)
Tonight Hector and I will be heading over to the Chart House to celebrate our birthdays. Our friend Mark gave us the gift card to enjoy at Mammoth but seriously, my children do not appreciate fine dining. This way we can enjoy our nice dinner without breaking up some childish argument and the kids get enjoy time with grandma. :) Win-win.
I went through the accumulated mail and cleaned the stovetop. It's nice to see the granite countertops and stove all black and shiny. :)
The stripey Noro socks are coming along nicely. Because I have to deal with stripes and more than one strand of yarn, I opted to knit them one at a time. First sock is done; it must have been a personal record for me. One sock done in 4 days. The sock looks great, nice contrasting stripes but I made the foot a bit short (for me). No problem, I know plenty of people with smaller feet. So I cast-on for the second sock and knit happily along for a few inches while Kat came over to visit. Then I discover why I need to knit socks 2 at a time. the second sock is smaller than the first. By an inch in width. UGH. Hey, but I'm gonna keep going...maybe my multiple attempts at trying on the first sock stretched it out a bit. Just keep knitting...just keep knitting! :) I will purposely ignore the obvious differences and just say the socks are unique.

I thought I'd share some of my fave 80's songs. Adam Ant was totally cool. I remember how I managed to score some tickets to see him for a last second show at The Strand in Redondo Beach (now a Bristol Farms). I begged the phamacy manager to let me and Kat off early so we could go. Of course he couldn't resist my request so he let us go. We had such a fabulous time in a crowd of 75 people standing about 6 feet from Adam Ant....good times!! :)

This otter decided to come out and pose on the stump...only later did I discover that it peed.
Another alligator with some very impressive teeth.
On a knitting side note: almost done with a pair of socks (Embossed Leaves) which are looking pretty awesome. I'm now debating whether to give them to Josh's teacher for Teacher Appreciation week or save them to enter the fair...

Well, whaddya know? Socks are blooming too! I finished these beauties last night so I had to show and tell. The yarn is a super soft alpaca Knitpicks Imagination in Wicked Witch. This is a prime example of using my toe-up technique since I had a limited amount of yarn. I still had leftovers but it's all good. I made the leg shorter since the sock seems narrow and I'll need to find someone with skinny legs about a ladies size 6.
