taco salad mystery recipe

this salad was amazing, however, i have no idea where the inspiration came from for this.  i can't seem to find the recipe i used and will probably never be able to recreate it exactly. even though i started a blog to record and archive these sorts of things.  i think i really must have a.d.d.   anyway, i know that the dressing was made form lime juice and other things, (honey, but i remember thinking i would 86 the honey on my 2nd attempt)

thank goodness for photos....
ingredients; avacado
red onion
black beans
tortilla chips
various seasonings


these are some highlights of our night in hillcrest during pride.  a picture says a thousand words, so here are 3000 for you to ponder.

1st guitar lesson

yesterday was my very first guitar lesson.

i need to write down this mess of feelings that i experienced after my guitar lesson, so that i can continue to practice and not lose motivation.

i felt excited with the possibility, happy that i was trying something totally new and foreign, every song i heard i tried to make a mental note to learn (once i am good enough obviously), pure bliss and joy, and all i did was learn chords Em Am C and D and how to hold the guitar correctly.

so happy to have found something else that i think i will love very much.

my current listenings, it's good, real good

Cold War Kids- Santa Ana Winds
Cold War Kids- Audience of One
Cold War Kids- Golden Gate Jumpers
Dr. Dog- Shadow People
Julian Casablancas- 11th Dimension
Julian Casablancas- Tourist

Delta Spirit- Strange Vine
Delta Spirit- Ode to Sunshine
Surfer Blood- Take it Easy

TV On The Radio- Wolf Like Me
Violent Femmes- Kiss Off

while listening to these tunes you should be relaxing, maybe stretching on a yoga mat, drinking either a light mexican beer (sol preferred, but corona will do) or iced green tea- because it is so damn hot, or reading blogs.

happy listening!

picture needs some explanation, huh? okay, i stole it from a family member, he had it on his facebook page, what a hussy huh? anyway, the background is, that it was taken in tahiti (i think), for a modeling agency (chip n' dales, i think) when he was working with them. (he isn't the man in the photo, for anyone wondering) i love it, for obvious reasons, and took it. i don't think he would disapprove though. so enjoy.
