Good morning, fam!
Hope you all had a good week.
After an insane summer of looking for a home, we finally had an offer accepted!!1
And now begins the whirlwind of inspections, paperwork, and negotiations.2
While I figure out how to negotiate like Harvey and Mike, check out this week’s recs.
Pause Suits, Google “WTF is real estate law?”, and let’s get into it.
Here’s what I have for you this morning:
It was another double-whammy week at Alamo. First up was a guys’ night out to see Grand Turismo. I gotta hand it to Sony - they took an unbelievable story, added some cool video game elements, and managed to cast Orlando Bloom as a lovable douche. (★★★••)
Next up was a solo outing to see Blue Beetle. Despite mixed reviews, I wanted to see the first movie of the new DCU for myself. Not only did Xolo Maridueña nail the lead role, each member of the Latino-led cast of characters made their mark. (★★★★•)
By now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I tore through season four of Suits. Things feel much better after a certain character came back and Donna’s up to no good, per usual. Just start watching it already. (★★★★•)
I’m pretty sure I’ve already shared Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend here but after listening to this episode with Steve Martin and Martin Short, I had to bring it up again. There’s nothing better than three comedy legends giving each other shit for an hour. (★★★★•)
While out for a friend’s bday, I ordered Topo Chico with lime. I know, this isn’t anything groundbreaking, but it’s super underrated and wayyy better than your average club soda and lime. (★★★★•)
Speaking of sober-friendly drinks, we made a pilgrimage to Trader Joe’s where I picked up Reed’s Zero Sugar Ginger Beer. It might be the tastiest ginger beer out there and it doesn’t have a metric crap-ton of sugar. Pro tip: for a dope mocktail, add some Trader Joe’s Pineapple Juice and a lime. (★★★★•)
After more than a decade of procrastinating, I finally got my first tattoo! Here’s why I went with a Spider-Man tat. Thanks again, Manny! (★★★★★)
Speaking of negotiating up top, I stumbled across this video of a Harvard business professor analyzing negotiation scenes from famous TV and movies. Spoiler alert: Viola Davis could negotiate her way into the presidency and I wouldn’t be surprised. (★★★••)
If you’re in St. Louis on September 17, come check out One Too Many’s “Back to School” show. Let’s just say it’ll be a blast from the past ;) (★★★★•)
You made it to the end! As a bonus, I’ll leave you with this.
I still can’t believe I might be allowed to own a home…
It’s a good thing I’ve been watching an insane amount of Suits.
