Isaac Gets to Veto Entries Involving Him

It's Isaac's last day in town. We ate tons of amazing food and blew off Kelsey Grammer.

For some reason, I thought it would be fun to see a taping of a show. Hear the sitcom without the laugh track. So I signed us up for Kelsey Grammer's show "Back To You." It was either that or random Jimmy Kimmel. That dance competition show with the guy from American Idol was totally booked (you KNOW I would have been there in a heartbeat).

Anyway, we made our way to the studio, 90 minutes early just as they asked. Standing in line, Isaac casually asked how long the taping would be.

"Two to four hours."

FOUR HOURS? Are they nuts? So we wait in line for an hour and a half plus four hours of taping? That is practically an entire work day. Being an audience member is actual work. Isaac and I sheepishly did a little tap number and shuffled away from the long line. We made a beeline for the car.

Speaking of the car - we spend so much time in the car! It is weird. Passenger seat gets to program music. I told him his iPod has too much junk on it. I don't know why I bother trying to put it on shuffle.

As I hit fast-forward:
"No! Go back to that one! That's a good song!"

"It's Senor Coconut. Really?"

"I like Senor Coconut!"

Cue Senor Coconut.

"Well. It sounds better usually. This car stereo is bad."

"Really, Isaac? It's the stereo?"

"Well, fine. Play some of your cooool music then."

"No, we'll listen to this."

Instead of seeing Kelsey Grammer, envisioning Sideshow Bob all the while, we went to Poquito Mas and it was AMAZING. I had a brick-size burrito of ahi tuna and lots of delicious other things. We ate it on the patio, as usual, which really means eating it in the parking lot. But it's the Canadian in us - we just can't resist sitting outside when it is warm enough to do so.

Goodbye, Isey.

Thank you .. passenger totally gets to play DJ. Of course, that rule may change if I'm in the driver's seat...

Told you it was good. I mean, even Nicole Ritchie eats there - and that bird doesn't even have a mouth that accepts food! I make no sense, but I will not sensor my stream of conciousness. No, I will not.
