I have now entered the realm of fanaticism...
Hello one and all...I haven't written i know and i'm sorry. Just too much to talk about and no way to talk about it all. But i will make my public confession so I can finally come to grips with the fact that i am officially a groupie. Not groupie " i want to have sex with you because you're cute and famous " but groupie " i buy your live concert DVD's and read anything written about you on the internet." For those of you who know me and have been a groupie before I know I have clowned you many a time for your fanatic behaviors ( you NSYNC fans shall remain nameless)i now understand. All you guys  know that i'm not a FAN of anyone really. Yes Duffy from Road Rules, yeah sure I have a laminated picture of him on my corkboard ( shut up its only like a little wallet picture...not that it makes it any better CAUSE ITS LAMINATED ). But now I've reached a new level of fanaticism with the one, the only Mr. John Mayer. Reasons why I love John Mayer.....ready.....GO :
1. Me and the monkeyboy went to his live concert at Verizon Wireless Ampitheater in Irvine. TWO make it THREE words for you : PUTI ( if you don't know, you better ask somebody ), DRUNK and GIRLS. Lots of loud mouth puti girls drunk as a skunk. To make things worse some old man in front of us wouldn't sit his ass down and mind you we're at the very back of the lawn and I could only see JM through his armpit. What's my point in all this complaining?...
despite it all the concert was the SHIT.
2. He is just chill. No Hollywood. No back up dancers. Just a guitar and some sloppy ass hair, making him even hotter. Nothing is more irritating than a pretty boy.
3. Despite the funny faces he makes when he's playing the guitar, he's still a hottie. Not hottie that can play a guitar but hottie cause he DOES play the guitar. There's nothing sexier than talent and good song writing skills.
4. He's all about break ups...So i've been nursing alot of break ups lately ( SHOUT TO ALL MY NEW SINGLE HOMIES) and talk about a guy that loves to write a sad song. He once said " A good song is supposed to break your heart ."
NOTE : I really am a psycho stalker fan now cause i'm quoting him
But he has some really heart wrenching ones. Ones to wallow in. I wallow in them and I'm not even in a break up! He didn't sing my favorite song "Comfortable" at the concert which i listen to OVER AND OVER and watch over and over on the DVD.

Sanks God!

The semester is over.I am officially on summer vacation and this one i'm gonna cherish because I know it will be the last real summer vacation I'll ever have.Thanks to everyone for supporting me in my first year back at the LB.Happy 5.5 years to "THE BOSS". I am a suckyass girlfriend since I always forget to greet this sucka at least once a month on the 11th of each month.But it was 6 years ago I took joe to my senior prom where it all began. Funny thing is I accidentally asked him. How do you accidentally ask someone to your prom? One night when joe and i were still friends ( I a senior at IMMAC, he a Sophoomore at UCI) we were randomly talking on the phone and I was bitchin at him about the last guy I was seeing that dumped me to get back with his ex-girlfriend( WHO by the by was missing one tooth and took me to Tommy's burger for Valentines day. BEEATCH! If i ever see him on the street I would beat his ass). Because of this situation I had no prom date.Back in 1998 joe was "KUYA joe" ( FUCKIN YUCK) and always gave me pep talks about whatever. Here's his pep talk :
Joe : well why don't you just take billy or ray or cyrus? ( just naming boys I know that could possibly be my date )

Riann : Nah, I took his ass already, and he doesn't know how to dance ( blah blah naming all these reasons why those guys sucked)...I might as well just take you ( i say sarcastically)


and not just any silence, awkward ass, i need to get off the phone now silence.

Joe : well I have to go now I think my roomate needs to use the phone.

Riann : Okay talk to you later

THe next day joe calls anna and says " I think Riann asked me to her prom?" She convinces him to call me to clarify and he asks

Joe : Did you really ask me to the prom

Riann : Sure, I guess

HAHAHAHAH...and now we've been together for 5.5 years.HILARIOUS. Happy anniversary PUPPY!

Vegas was the bizomb. Probobly one of the best veags trips ever since everyone was down for everything and anything. Highlights include :

1. Cheese enchiladas, fried zucchinis and a baked potatoe : That was the meal on the way to vegas in the West Co carl's. Sounds like a sick ass meal, but when you're starving and you're being a little angry baby, its gourmet foo.Car ride to vegas was hilarious cause Tomas ( aka. Little John) was sooo angry. Angry kid that Tommy.Getting to vegas at 2 am and getting greeted by the homies at our favorited mojito place ( Zuri in MGM ) was the best welcome. Falling asleep while eating breakfast and waking up with a shit load of grape jam in your lap and keno papers in your hand while your homies watch you wake up horrified cause they put all that shit on you is not a great welcome.

2. " I'll never look at ice the same way again " - cecile marie :
Bellagio buffet is really the buffet for all the playas and playettes. None of this circus circus buffet shit, i'm talking about fine dining cuh. We all woke up around 2 p.m. and got our buffet on at Bellagio. Man, all i can say is two words : KOBE BEEF. everything in that joint is just high quality. Even the ice in our drinks were dope. Cile will never be impressed with any other ice than Bellagio Ice. Even stecy was like " man screw this Atkins diet shit, i'm gonna eat!" You go girl. I love going to eat with the homies cause the first 20 minutes is pure silence. Just the clinging and clanging of utensils. But after everyone's gotten something in their tummy its ruckus once again.

3. I am like a cockroach that won't die :
We went to gamble a little bit at Excalibur and i played my favorite game of roulette. With only 20 bucks, i was at my table for like 2 hours. Everytime i was down, thinking i was dead with no more money left, something would hit. I eventually cashed out with $35 bucks. Not too shabby.

4. Partying like Rock Stars :
I've never felt so Beyonce and Jay-z until Saturday night at V-Bar at the Venetian. To make a long story short, we were kinda forced into getting table service for $250 bucks just to party at V-Bar. At first we thought " the MAN" was trying to hustle the little brown kids into paying $250 for table, but in the end it was all worth it. So for all of you who don't know what TABLE SERVICE is, you better ask somebody. Just kidding here is what our table service consisted of for $250 :
1. 1 bottle of stoli
2. all the juices we wanted to be as mixers in cool looking vase type containers
3. glasses and ice
4. limes
5. personal service from our waitress Christina that looked like the black girl from Rugrats but the HOT TO TROT version
6. a behind the velvet rope reserved VIP booth cause we are P.I.M.P's

so just when we thought we were done with our one bottle, cile and babyboo decided to be so generous as to keep the party going with another 250 dollar bottle of Vodka, this time Kettle One. AH YEAH. Everyone was just the right amount of faded but no yacking and no one acting the fool. Thanks kids.

The crowd was very random : high class escorts and their old men clients to our left, metro sexual dudes wearing their shirts open to our right, and very trendy mostly white 25-35 year olds. And of course the VIP for the night, Mr. Eddy Griffin himself who was there with his posse and his 60 year old homie that he tried pimping iya to. HAHAHAHA.

THe music was dope. Hip -HOp and 80's. Not just any dj. Tomas's friend from Cerritos that played all the jams. Lots of Jay-z and Lots of Little Jon just for tommy.hahahah. The dope ass music selection was topped off with Bobby Brown "every little step" and just when we thought it couldn't get better we hear a familiar slow melody and the first line...

" All summer long we've been together, and it never felt so good "

AHHHHHHH!!!!!!! NO he didn't. He played every Pilipino kid's favorite slow jam, the Kissing game from Hi-5. Babyboo and I could not help but get on top of the table and sing along with all the homies. Everyone else in the club wished they could party the way we were but they were lame. One white lady tried to front like she knew the words and was singing along. BITCH! Don't try to get up in the Kool Aid if you don't know the flavor. But it truly was a dope end to a dope night.

Thursdays are always long days for me since i have work in the morning with the kids and I have to go straight to the hospital to do research on the patient i'm doing my rotation on for the next day. Freakin hectic. It takes at least 4 hours to do the complete research on my patient so i don't get chewed out the next day for not being prepared.

Riann : Justin Guarini ( SUcck)
Carina : NOPE...can i just tell you
Riann : Sure just tell me
Carina : Wiliam Hung
Riann : SHUT THE HELL UP! HAHAHAHAHAHA (laughing hysterically !). You lie soo bad
Carina : I wish i were.
Riann: OH SHIT. For what song
Carina : SHE BANGS
Carina : yup, they even got the director for the original "She Bangs" and its an exact replica of the original, but with us and William Hung
Riann : DUDE... that made my day
Carina : i'm glad.
Riann : when does that shit air ?
Carina : April 26 on MTV
