Delicious in Hotlanta

After I finished up Comic-Con, I hopped on a train and headed back to LA where I got to spend 1.5 delightful days with my thug dogs. After much belly rubbing, I hopped on a plane for a screen test in Hotlanta. The first thing I said when I got off the plane at 7:30 pm, 'gawd it is humid!' The temp read 72, but with humidity hitting 3 digits, it felt more like hell. West coast people aren't used to this kind of weather, and although I've been privy to heat, I always try and block out why this place is called Hotlanta!

Now to explain the not so great food pic. You all know I am a lady of class and manners...haha! Sorry, I can't even finish that line. Anyhow, I would usually never put up a pic of food I have eaten as it looks gross, but this lunch consisting of a veggie melt and tater tots was BOMB!!!! I had to share! Now being a vegetarian for about 10 years, I've all walks of pitiful attempts at nmaking veggie food flavorful, but nothing I have had in recent memory has been this artery cloggingly delicious! This melt, which is served in a bar/restaurant called The Vortex in midtown, said came with fries or tater tots. Stop, u have me at tater tots. Who doesn't love food named after small, youthful human beings? So I decide on the melt thinking it'll come with a patty and grilled veggies. Oh how I was wrong, the magic is only beginning. With somemelted cheese, peppers, mushroom, onions and butter soaked then toasted rye bread, I felt like god had reached down and blessed tghe skillet with his spit, it was so good! I mean yes, m arteries aren't happy I took this tiny trip down kill myself with food lane, but I've gotta live, especially in a place known to make people want to punch their own faces in so they could stay in an air conditioned place like a hospital.

With my test done, which btw went swimmingly, I am now at the aquarium. I known I'm such a tourist! Anyhow, supposedly it is the largest aquarium in the US if not world. Well gargantuan is what I want, I'm american afterall. Bring on the fishes. I do wonder, being a west coaster and a feequent visitor to monterey bay aquairium, how will it compare? And why charge adults $27 per visit? It is as if I am empliyed or something, making dozens of dollars a year. Listen, can someone tell the aquarium that there is a recession, unemployment is high, and gas is record breaking? Can we negotiate a $20 fee? I should stop blogginh and go to the aquairium, as every minute counts when u have 2 hours and are paying $27. I wonder why people call me cheap. ;)

Man! I need some spit from God!!!!! haha Well I'm glad you found out why Georgians are among the "fattest" states in the union. haha Made worse, with that heat and humidity, people aren't too motivated to get those bodies moving. ^_^

Hope your visit to Hotlanta's aquarium has shamed them into opening their admission practice to the joys of that great American instution...bartering! ^_^
