Part I: And This Is How It All Went Down...

Intro to the W(est) C(oast) H(otties) Blog Fest...

Bloggers in Crime:
That Girl Tam, Supa, Diva Dee, One Cool Sis, and Glam!

The plan: The West Coast Bloggin' Hotties were to meet, conversate, dine, cocktail, and celebrate their general fabulousness on Saturday night at a spot in Hollywood called Lola's. (remember this for later, boys and girls...)

So Supa was very much looking forward to seeing her girl Tia-style coming in fresh from The D (Dallas), and simply basking in the glow of being alive and having a fun evening with these fabulous blogging chicas; especially since my mood/spirit was still struggling with this. So come Saturday eve, after the standard "gettin' ready for the weekend" to-do list (housecleaning, groceries, errands, miscellaneous shopping, coiffing, etc.), Supa was posted up at the pad, awaiting the arrival of Tia, Tam, and Dee......

(the Supa Pad, post rennovations) And um yes of course, there's pre-drama drama to report. Like to hear it? Hear it go: First, Tia's cousin jetted out on her at the exact precise time she was supposed to be dropping her off at my pad (did she swoop back to the Slauson Swapmeet?!?). Next, Tam and Dee had to wait around for Tam's sitter to show, and therefore, got a lil' off schedule. PLUS, Dee drove up from Daygo (San Diego - big ups to Dee!), and I think she was gettin' kinda hungry...By this time it's around 7-ish, and we were due to appear at Lola's 'round 7:30... (we were striving for OPT vs. CPT). SO, Supa's waiting around, while texting Tia, while calling Tam, while debating on whether to order MORE pizza for those hungry-ass boys in my house (RR#1 and his pal), while worrying about our designated 7:30 meeting time at the jump off spot...

Then: Tia arrives!!! Yaaaayyyyy! We hadn't seen each other since Dallas (4 years??), and we just CANNOT let that much time pass again, okay, T? Okay. So here we are skinnin' and grinnin'. (not so bad, considering we were doing that "stretch the arm so we can take our own picture" move!) See? 'Aint she purty! And she's hella smart - she's a bona fide computer genius/IT whiz/editor/consultant/writer/all-around fly momma (yeah, she's supa) and she's funny, too! With her country-talkin' ass. Uh, I'ma need you to reclaim your rightful Cali accent. Stat!

Oh, and she brought me a present, too:


Some batteries. Thanks, Ms. Smartass!

So we get to chattin', while Supa's showing her around the pad. You know, talking design ideas and color schemes and what not. The Pooch, with her nosey self, wants to be all up in the mix, following us all around the house, so she and Tia stop and pose for this shot right here. Lovely.

So, okay - like, where the hell are Tam and Dee? We hear a car pull up, but then realize it's just a guest headed over to my ghetto ass neighbors' house. (yes, Latinos & their loud-ass backyard "parties" DO fall under the "ghetto" umbrella) Then anotha car pulls up, but that's just one of the Supa Friends (Green Eyed Bandit) rollin' through, stoppin' to holla real fast, along with his cutie pie of a son. (Tia - he said he hopes you had big fun.)

FINALLY - That girl Tam hits me on the cellie, talkin' 'bout: "I'm on such-and-such boulevard, now which way do I go..."

Okay, and first of all, our girl was sounding majorly raspy - she was out hollering at the Black Eyed Peas concert the night before, and lost her voice, or something like that. Yeah, I'll ask MACK when all the hollering really took place, but whateva. Ya'll grown. So anyway, she's just a talking, sounding all froggy, and I was half-listening while giggling about it with Tia, and next thing I know Tam's going: (trynta whisper all loud n shit)

"Damn n*gga, which way do I turn, don't you know the directions to ya own goddamn house?!" Okay? She went straight South Central on me. Now that's my kinda chick! So of course, the proper response was: "Look trick, the two damn streets you just rattled off run PARALLEL, but I couldn't tell you that 'cause I was too busy clownin' your strep throat-ed ass!"

Ha! Ha ha. So, after a few moments and manuevers on their behalf: Tam and Dee are here!!
(Tam's crazy ass taking a picture of me and T while I was taking a picture of her and Dee..)

It's 'bout to be a party, ya'll! Let's roll......

SO! After Supa walks Dee and Tam through the pad, then introduces and gives instructions to RR#1 (call me in an hour, betta pick up the phone when I call, NO ya'll can't get on the bus and go to the movies, stay ya'lls asses inside this house, etc.) - That Girl Tam, One Cool Sis, Diva Dee, and Supa have a mini-jam session in the middle of her living room when Kool Moe Dee came on the Dish satellite old-school jams radio station. Party ova here, party ova there, okay ya'll, let's bounce!

Hop in the whip, Hollywood-bound!! Glam and a few others are to meet us at Lola's; Tia's cousins and a few friends of mine are planning to meet there as well. We're blastin' the sounds, laughing and chattin' while rollin' down Fairfax Boulevard into West LA, through Little Ethiopia, past The Grove, heading into West Hollywood. It was all lovely, felt reminiscent of the high school daze (days) when you and ya girls was out and about, just having a great time.

Get to Lola's, valet, step out the whip like "yeah, yeah, we here, we here!" I'm thinking: Can't wait to get inside and order a bomb martini....

Wanna hear the rest of the hotness?? (you know you do)

onecoolhoney said...

Hahahaha! That was ME who had HER taking me to the Slauson Swap Meet! (She ain't feelin' that place no mo'...hehehe) but she was thinking we were supposed to be at your house by 7:30; she completely missed what I was saying about 6!

The only way I'd get my Cali accent back is by total immersion cuz right about now my reclaiming that accent is a lil' like learning a foreign language. Gotta go surround myself with the natives. hehehe

Awwwww, hey, I do the best I can with what I got, but I ain't pretty as you and that beautiful smile of yours!!

Tell your boy I said hello and yes I did have a fabulous time!!

LMAO @ your reaction to the batteries!! Now THAT was PRICELESS!! BWAHHAAHAHAHAHA!!!

onecoolhoney said...

And no I most surely am NOT trying to let that much time pass again between our get-togethers. We got our writers conference in July, then after that I guess I need to either tag along with you on that annual vacation to Jamaica you take or wherever the new destination is, or we need to go ahead and organize our first sistas' retreat! Miami? Aruba? Belize? Hawaii? Just tell me where we tryna go, and I'll put on my travel agent hat and start putting together packages!!!

OK, all I wanna know is if Southern Cali is the same after you ladies collectively showed up and showed out?

Everyone is looking so gorgeous and fly! And the recap has me rolling. I can't wait to read everyone's reports. This is like a blog soap opera.

And Jamal, you are looking fabu, mama! Loving the hair...loving the house...loving the color scheme...I'm just loving you right now! LOL (no homo)

I hate that I missed the festivities, but dammit we're doing something in Dallas in July. Let the East Coast sistas in on a piece of the action. ;-)~
