Jonathan Field - Maker of Random Stuff


I just had a great birthday week. Sophie came out and we spent a night at the M resort since I had a good coupon. Then we went to the Mirage to see LOVE and spent a night there too. In a rare moment of true Vegasdom, we hit the casino floor and threw about $100 into the machines. We walked away with just a little over $100, so not too bad.

Then we spent most of Friday buying stuff for a pool party & birthday bbq for Saturday. It was a combined birthday for myself and my good friend Christa, who was also born on this lovely week in May. The party was a big success with some 40 people rocking out by the pool, snacking on cookout food, and generally having what appeared to be a good time. I’d never thrown a party that size before, so it was fun to see it all come together.

Currently, this is the only picture I have from the party. But that works.

Sophie was an amazing help with the party — making some super Korean Beef and managing the kitchen area for much of the festivities. And the guests were wonderful people that not only brought a great assortment of sides, drinks, and desserts, but they also cleaned up afterwards, too. The next morning upon waking I only needed to sweep the floor and carry out a bag of trash.

Then on Sunday there was _another_ birthday for pal Sotheavy. A big group went to Hostile Grape for delish wine and cheese time.

And now it’s Monday. I’m 36. What to do?

  1. What to do?

    Kick ass and take names!

  2. Happy birthday!

    As soon as I read how you had a barbeque and Sophie was present, my first thought was: Korean beef? That stuff was yummy when I ate it at your place in Concord back in 2001.

    • Hey babe!

      Thanks. And yes, whenever Sophie is in my presence, I can think of nothing but Korean Beef.

      You and the hubby think you’ll be out to Las Vegas anytime? I can get her recipe and while I grill your man can wow us with his circular swimming skills in the little back yard pool.

      • No plans in the immediate future for Vegas. As the weather gets warmer I have to say it seems like a less attractive option. Some other time though! I would love to have your Korean beef.

        Are you coming to visit sometime soon? Jason’s coming in July and KateRo is making a play for Labor Day (with her boyfriend).
