I’m Blaming My Friends, Part I

* I will be hosting a giveaway this Wednesday!  Make sure to stop by and join in the fun! *

A few of my friends and I decided to go to the Laguna Playhouse one night last week to see The Second City perform Can You Be More Pacific?

Can You Be More Pacific? is a show consisting of a series of short skits/improvs spoofing Orange County.  It was hilarious.  I highly recommend it to all of my Orange County readers.  (Well, all of you who have a sense of humor!)  As a writer who is constantly making fun of the Orange County lifestyle, I truly appreciated the great acting and humor of the performances.

The show didn't start until 8 p.m., but my friend, Nike, thought we should start our evening around 4:00 in the afternoon.  

What can I say?

She likes to have a good time.

We parked on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway for those of you who don't live here) and walked a block or two to our first destination.

Walking along Pacific Coast Highway looks like this:

(Excuse the crappy photo quality – all of today's photos were taken with a very old point and shoot, and in many of them the photographer was inebriated.)

A drunk photographer is a shocking and very disturbing thing!

It only took a few minutes to spot our first destination.

We were headed to K'ya.  It's pronounced k-eye-a.

I think.

After ascending a couple flights of stairs we, too, were on the rooftop.

We were at the bar, but the seating area for people who actually want to eat food while they're at K'ya looks like this:

The bar crowd looked more like this:

Well, you did want to see a typical OC woman, didn't you?

Notice the mega-carat diamond studs in her ears, the designer sunglasses, the perfectly french-manicured nails and the bleached blonde hair.  

Oh wait, don't forget the excessive cleavage which is probably store-bought if she's like the majority of women here.

There's more too!

Check out the lips!

Do you think they're natural?

And what about her hair piece?  Do you think that's natural?

How did I get off on this tangent?

My apologies.

I get a lot of people asking for photos of Orange County folks, and this woman is pretty typical.

She's probably a very nice person.

Anyway …

With my back to the ocean, the view from K'ya looked like this:

IMG_3965
 

Very pretty, but, of course, I faced towards the men ocean while we were there.

My friend, Nike, suggested we kick off the night with mojitos.

I didn't want to hurt her feelings, so I was forced to agree.

And really?

That mojito is just the beginning of this story ……

(Part II will post on Thursday.  Also, I posted a few other photos of our girl's night out over the weekend.  If you missed them, you might want to scroll back and take a look.)

    I think that as soon as the rain stops it is time for another trip to the beach. I blame you for that. 😉

    Boobs could be real since they are sagging, jewelry is gawd awful tacky, definitely collagen in those lips since you could probably wear wax ones just like it on Halloween. UGLY woman…. But I just know YOU had a blast.

    Mo,
    No straws in the beer. (I was drinking mojitos anyway.) The mojitos came with a straw AND a piece of sugar cane which looks like a second straw. Don’t even ask what the price was … the OC prices would shock the hell out of you!

    Hi!
    I stumbled across your blog when I was surfing for pix of fruit-bearing cactus. My serious mistake was stumbling in while at work as your posts and “about me” page sent me into giggle fits! Your blog is so awesome!
    I just live over the Santa Ana’s from you in the Inland Empire. Being new to So. Cal. (5 years on Wed) and an avid gardener, I’ve been turning my backyard into a drought tolerant/native plant heaven.
    I picked up a large cactus at a tag sale on Sat and am now trying to figure out what it is. Here’s a link to the post on my blog. Unfortunately I don’t come across as very intelligent in this post since the planting of this large plant was met with some interesting challenges…

    I’ll definitely be back to visit your blog…and often. It’s really GREAT!

    Been there with our mutual friend @kirstenwright – it was earlier in the day and we were more concerned with the ill-performing WiFi! How do you so inobstrusively take photos of unsuspecting patrons? It’s the OC – gotta love her – and she’s no Heidi Montag of LA thank GAWD!
