The Mighty Junebugg – a June of all Trades


A Cake for HOUSESHOES

So I get a text message early in the morning asking if I could make a cake for DJ Houseshoes that night at Little Temple. I had the day off and decided SURE, I’d love to! Instantly thoughts of carving cake into the shape of some house shoes came to mind. I got to the point where I was imagining piping on frosting to look like courderoy when the homie Byze started telling me about Houseshoes obsession with Newport cigarettes. Thats brilliant, a Newport Cake!

I set out to the store to buy all the necessary supplies. I had never made a cake using fondant before and I didnt have time to fuck up! I had exactly enough time to make one cake, right; and deliver it to the Little Temple by Midnight. I didn’t even have time to curl my hair or get dressed up. I literally made the cake right up until we walked the door and then I had to drive like a madwoman to get it to LA in time. Here are some pics of what ensued.

Ok so I know I’m going a little bit overboard on this wishlist but I just compiled it as if money was no object to all my friends & family. =)

#1 – Tom Tom GPS with Snoop Dogg voice!!!

Holy Shit, this thing is SO DOPE! Please dear Lord let Snoop Dogg guide my way!

#2 – A Freakin’ BLIMP ride!

So I’m driving around town the other day and I see a huge blimp floating around. It wasn’t the Goodyear Blimp, but it had some writing on it. I couldn’t see what it said so I zoomed in, took a picture and hoped I would be able to zoom in again on my computer to see what it said. I was SO FREAKIN EXCITED when I saw what it said…

I have always wanted to ride in a blimp!!! I even asked my dad about it and he said its almost impossible to get a ride on a blimp. Please Dear Santa, let me get a ride on this blimp! Check out their website Airship Ventures. You can even fly around NAPA WINERIES on this frickin thing! (Disclaimer: I know I used the word FRICKIN and !!! a lot in this one but I was just really excited)

#3 – KitchenAid Mixer

I bought an $80 Sunbeam mixer and blew it up making masa. If you don’t know by now… I cook, like a lot and I need a hardcore mixer. Look how sexy this silver KitchenAid is! I’ve gone to Costco several times just to marvel at its beauty.

#4 Alien Skin Eye Candy

This is some nerd shit but I really want it! Its an Adobe Photoshop plug in that helps to make amazing effects. I got the demo version but it ran out and I just wanna be legit so I can go all out!

#5 – A New Pair of Crocs

I know, I know, they are ugly… maybe even borderline hideous but they are so comfortable. I love to wear them while cooking or around the campsite. The pair I have now have seen some places, but are finally breaking down after a few years of good service to me.

So…Yes, All of those please, size 8 (except for the boots cause they are men’s so size 6). I love them!

#6 – Rane TTM-57SL

I really do need a new mixer, so some one Santa… hook it up!

#7 – A Trip to Peru!

Listen Recovery has extensive posts on their blog about Peru. If you don’t know much about the place, check it out and see how beautiful the country is!

#8 A Verizon Wireless Mobile Modem

I would love to be able to blog and look up info while camping or on the go. Verizon has the best coverage in the US so hopefully I’d be able to get a signal most anywhere.

#9 Rosetta Stone – Spanish (Latin America)

Ok so if I’m gonna go to Peru, I’ll need to speak Spanish…

#10 – MacBook Pro 13-inch

Fully loaded, biggest everything please!

#11 Cinemark Movie Tickets

I’m socially retarded when it comes to movies. People are constantly asking me, “Have you seen that movie” and I’m constantly saying, “No”. I need to catch up on my movie watching folks, so help a sister out and hook up some movie tickets. Cinemark is right down the street.

So there you have it folks, my top 11 Christmas wish items. If I don’t get them though… its cool, I got my family and they are more important to me than than anything else.

Look how cute my mom & dad are! They made their own website just cause!

For all of yall who don’t know… there kicks ARE HIP HOP! This shoe brand was created by Rich One, a graffiti artist from the legendary NASA crew. Its nice to see that he took his art from the streets and turned it into a worldwide phenomenon while still maintaining his integrity.
