It’s hot AF in the ATL today. Like we might have hit 100 degrees hot. So me and Banjo are staying inside under the air conditioning and binge watching a show on Starz called Vida.
I saw an ad for it on Bravo actually. I watched two half hour episodes then I got up jumped in the car and bought a bunch of beer and some wine. Then I stopped at the Mexican drive through. I ordered a bunch of random stuff. And read some of my book. El Veloz is not fast food. It’s slow food made by Mexicans. Anthony Bourdain ate at one when he was in Atlanta for his travel show. The thing is, you never get what you order. I think I might have this time. It seems I got fish tacos instead of shrimp ones. I have yet to get a shrimp taco. It doesn’t matter. Whatever you get is great.
There was some sort of heart dropping incident with my Amex. My bill was $23 dollars. Don’t judge, the chicken tacos are for Banjo. Plus this is two days of bingewatching and eating. The server told me that my card would only accept $20. So I had to pay $3 in cash. I also had a panic attack. I had to come home and check my AMEX account. Everything seemed fine but the tacos were not on there. There was a pending charge of three dollars, not twenty. It was some sort of kerfuffle on the taco stand end. I called AMEX and everything was fine with the card. But I’m still panicky.
So back to Vida. It’s about two estranged sisters who come back to East LA when their mother dies. The sisters are not close. One of the two hadn’t really spoken to her mom years. They both discover all sorts of secrets. The mom owned a building that has apartments and a bar. Oh and everyone is Mexican.
You really are going to want Mexican food when you watch, so plan for that. Lots of Mexican food porn.
And a shit ton of actual porn. You will see every cast member completely nude at some point. I’m only three episodes in. So if porn isn’t your thing, this show is not for you. Because the sex scenes are very real looking. And there are lots of them. The writing is amazing. Everyone has secrets and they are slowly coming out.
I’m going to go back to eating tacos and drinking beer with Banjo now. The site is pretty dead, so I’ll probably just do a discussion post for RHOP tonight. If that. It’s a holiday weekend. And I want to spend mine eating tacos with my dog. And watching porn.
What are you guys doing?
