Bare It All

by Holly on February 10, 2010

in breakfast,dinner,lunch

As it turns out, there is apparently a Deja Vu “dance club” in every state.

The best part? Many of you readers also affectionately refer to these joints as “The ‘Vu.”  And that is precisely why I love you all.  A quick Google search lead me to the Deja Vu strip club network, where I can announce that there are clubs in Minnesota, Washington, California, Nevada, Colorado, Louisiana, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, New York and Maryland.

Why am I posting a list of strip clubs on my blog? I. HAVE. NO. IDEA. Personally, I actually find them quite demeaning to women.  Then, I go about posting it on the world wide web. Hypocrite or exercising my freedom of speech?

B + S + L were the exact same as they have been for the past two days

How’s that for a stripped down description? (Pun totally intended)

Work was utterly and completely crazy today.  Literally, it is taking all my energy to put together coherent sentences right now because my brain no longer wants to function.  It has officially reached its limit for the day.

Afternoon snackage included a whole bag of nearly naked popcorn.  With just a sprinkle of salt, it almost made me want to jump on a stripper pole with joy.

I stayed at work later and missed my planned 5:15pm yoga class, which is okay because I am actually pretty sore from hitting it hard this week (at the gym, that is).

Instead, I came home and made the quickest thing I could think of…Spinach Egg Scramble!

1 tsp. EVOO
1 tsp. garlic
1 huge handful spinach
1 crumbled Breakfast Sunshine burger
2 eggs
1/2 diced roma tomato
s + p

Then, while my sweet ‘tater fries were baking away in the oven, I had some truffle chocolate (x2) from my girl Nicole

…before my chu-chu-chu-cheetahs were ready!

I ate these fully clothed (a.k.a. smothered in BBQ sauce).

Now, I am determined to finish the things I have been meaning to do all week before hopefully crawling in bed with last night’s LOST episode.  I can only hope Boone returns yet again this week.

In the spirit of strippers, baring it all and the upcoming consumer holiday known as Valentine’s Day, it’s a special “love-themed” question time!  Pick any (or all) of these to answer!

Do you have a valentine for this upcoming Sunday? Does my dad count?

Worst kiss. Ugh! The time a guy proceeded to lick my whole face off with the sloppiest, jerkiest, most unappealing kiss of my life.  Things ended right thurre.

What is the most romantic gesture anyone has done for you? Patty Poo, one of my favoritest people in the world, serenaded me junior year to ask me to prom in front of my whole high school!  He is such a doll.  We have always just been buds and went to prom as friends, but I am pretty sure that is still pretty romantic.

Best feature in the opposite sex (or same sex – support equality!). Eyes, which just might explain my obsession with this man.


Jessica @ How Sweet It Is February 10, 2010 at 8:00 pm

Oooh that truffle chocolate looks incredible! I amc craving chocolate badly at the moment and don’t have any due to the snow storm. I do have a valentine, but I still count my dad as my main valentine. :)

Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries February 10, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Sooo you’re saying we should do a food blogger Deja Vu stripbar crawl? I can put everyone up for the New York stop.

i love your popcorn eatin as of late. it makes me proud. not more so than your clases de espanol.

en serio, tenemos que hablar. mucho mas que hemos sido hablando. porque quiero ayudarte. y porque te quiero.

Tamara February 10, 2010 at 8:13 pm

1) I have a captive in the apartment right now just for that purpose.

2) A couple weeks ago, I shuffled across the carpet in socks to give my sweetie a quick kiss on the way to the kitchen. Ouch! “Sparks” really flew!

3) Sweetie hopped on a bus, got off one stop before our complex, darted to the apartment, and ran back to the stop in five minutes flat while the bus made a small turn-around loop to get back to campus to bring me a chemistry lab report that was due in an hour.

4) Rationality; a.k.a. the ability to work through problems. I don’t care if he’s cute, funny, romantic or charming–if we can’t make good life decisions together the relationship won’t last.

Danielle February 10, 2010 at 8:23 pm

My day has also been long and stressful… so I’d just like to thank you for this post, pepped me right back up :) and apparently I’m partial to stripper-references.

1) I do have a Valentine for this Sunday, but once again, I can’t be with him. Which sucks. Because I can’t go the girl power route and savor independence and friends and I can’t take part in the disgustingly cute romance. Nonetheless, I love him, he loves me, and we’ll be making the lovey-dovey day up soon. Told you made my day brighter!

4) a. Support equality all the way, love that you included that, and yes I mean the Valentine kind of love ;) b. Eyes all the way, and a cute butt.

Kailey (SnackFace) February 10, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Hahaha I love all the sexual innuendos. I’m bummed I haven’t done this yet.

So, my valentine is obviously Muffin. I’m buying her dranks this weekend.

Hahaha worst kiss was with this really beautiful guy, but his lips were really pinched and awful. It was a series of bizarre pecks. And that was enough.

I’m still waiting for any romantic gesture. Hasn’t happened, and college certainly isn’t the place for it. Unless you consider someone buying us shots.

Dammnnnn best feature. Uhhh, I’ll keep this PG. Physically, I love the dark complexion, dark hair Greek/Italian look. But what is really attractive is humor. You gotta be funny or else I’ll forget you.

LOVE YOU!!!!! I need to send you your damn book!

Katie February 10, 2010 at 8:52 pm

No Valentine I don’t think I could buy a date!

Never been kissed (been called a slut and yet never been kissed figure that one out!)

Um no romantic gesture? Unless getting asked to bed counts

Muscles I am a sucker for an athlete! Especially abs!

BTW I’m 20 and refuse to believe that never being in a relationship is a pitiful thing ;)

Katie February 10, 2010 at 9:01 pm

Ooooh I’m getting ready to watch LOST too! Can’t freakin’ wait.

1. Yes, I have 25. Husband + my class of 3rd graders.
2. My first kiss. The boy ran into my face and nearly broke my nose.
3. Marriage proposal…is that a cop out?
4. Confidence

Matt February 10, 2010 at 9:03 pm

I hope you like the LOST episode. It was good last night!

Sissy #1 February 10, 2010 at 9:07 pm

I like humor in men…and a nice ba-donk-a-donk in the ladies….

Low February 10, 2010 at 9:09 pm

Bahahaha. I’m actually quite disappointed there’s no Deja Vu strip joint in Oklahoma. I feel left out.

No Valentine for me.

Worst kiss was my first kiss – he banged into my teeth and my lip bled.

Gosh, I can’t even think of one romantic thing. My relationships were always so… practical. Surely there’s something though. I mean I’ve been proposed to… but the engagement didn’t workout so that kind of negates the romanticism I think.

Best feature – eyes, followed very closely by skin tone. The darker the bettah ;) Jakie is so dreamy. I love him.

Adrien February 10, 2010 at 9:14 pm

Have you ever had your face vacuumed off in a make out session? Worst moment of my life.. followed by him saying to me “You know you want it..” and he was scrawny and had “giant mistake” written all over him

Jenna February 10, 2010 at 9:28 pm

Egg scrammble looks great- may have to recreate that onee!

Jess February 10, 2010 at 9:31 pm

Your dad totally counts :D

If I ate those eats seven days in a row, then I’d be VERY happy.
<3 jess

katie February 10, 2010 at 9:53 pm

hahah worst kisS? behind the movie theatre in 6th grade! GROSS. best feature?! MUSCLES, eyes, that order!
your eats always look aweesome!

Kristie February 10, 2010 at 9:58 pm

Oh you are definitely not the only one with a Jake Gyllenhaal love. Thank you for that little bit of eye candy (pun intended) tonight ;)

*Andrea* February 10, 2010 at 10:14 pm

great post!! love your eats – ALL of them :) i hve definitely had some bad kisses – one guy’s teeth kept hitting mine yuckkkkk. do my parents also count as my valentine ;) my roomies said they would be mine but i felt it was pity since they both have dates for valentines day lol.

Mama Pea February 10, 2010 at 10:38 pm

Ooh, I feel so scandalous reading this naughty, naughty post.

Pea Daddy is my valentine, of course. I wrote our Love Story on my post tonight :) Our engagement was the most romantic thing he’s ever done for me, but that story is for another post…

Tay February 10, 2010 at 10:51 pm

Just clicked on your link of “this man”. Ooof excuse me for a sec when I wipe the drool off of my keyboard…

Julie @SavvyEats February 10, 2010 at 10:54 pm

I have a Valentine, and he got me a plane ticket to come visit him this weekend!

And I will have 5 Valentines a few days late…on a fro yo date!

Seriously did not intend to rhyme. It is past my bedtime.

Wow, seriously. Must. Stop. Rhyming.

Jamie @ River Runs February 10, 2010 at 11:23 pm

Mmmm I love spinach in my eggs! Actually, I love spinach in just about anything =)

I have my own Valentine plus his three best friends – hitting the slopes! I baked them heart shaped cookies, sharing the love =)

Whit February 11, 2010 at 12:46 am

You know Jakey is single now, right?


Chelsea @ (Chelsea's Chew and Run Fun) February 11, 2010 at 5:53 am

I loved this post.

Your spinach sunshine scrambles look delicious! I want it!

No, there will be no special valentines this Sunday. The one person I want as my valentine has no clue that I’m head over heels for him.

Worst kiss? Any guy that has ever used his tongue as a wrecking ball. Tongue thrusters should be put on an island!

The most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me would have to be when an old flame learned my favorite Beatle’s song for me on guitar and serenaded me with it out of the blue one day.

Best feature in the opposite sex? I don’t want to get graphic, but let’s just say…it’s the thing that makes them the opposite sex. Also, a sense of humor.

Gina February 11, 2010 at 5:54 am

1) Not currently
2) Hmm, I think I’ve been lucky enough to have all good kisses! I think the only kisses that were “bad” were those that happened out of spite.
3) My boyfriend gave me the most beautiful ring for Christmas the first night we ever said I love you.
4) Ok, this will sound weird – glasses. I love it when guys wear glasses!

Sarah (Running To Slow Things Down) February 11, 2010 at 6:05 am

Of course dads count as valentines, because mine totally is too. ;)

Your veggie spaghetti sounds awesome!!

Madeline - Greens and Jeans February 11, 2010 at 6:39 am

In college there was this strip club called “Legs and Eggs,” which as I’m sure you can imagine was only open in the morning and served breakfast. My boyfriend in college and I had got into a fight over something stupid and he stood outside my window with his guitar and played and sang “in your eyes.” Obviously I melted and forgave him. Who can resist a Lloyd Dobbs moment?!

Tina February 11, 2010 at 7:35 am

Your so funny :) I had no idea there were that many ‘Vu strip clubs.

I do have a valentine in my hubby and daughter. But who’s to say that actually means anything? ;)

Worst kiss – a guy who had a huge crush on me (but I did not return the favor at all) gave me my FIRST kiss by randomly diving at my mouth tongue and all in between the trailers at school while I was explaining a homework assignment to him. Ugh! I’m still pissed my first kiss was stolen from me.

Most Romantic Moment – Probably when I found some roses as the start of a scavenger hunt in my car when leaving work a few years ago. I was very surprised and I think that was what made it romantic.

Favorite thing about the opposite sex – Physically nice shoulders or eyes. Personality – devotion!

mamma everthingtarian February 11, 2010 at 7:40 am

A shout out to Kowolski’s Seeded Eziekial bread= have yet to find one that beats it!!!!!

Lori T February 11, 2010 at 7:42 am

My valentines are the big guy and my girls (including the dog!)

Most romantic moment: Curt would paint my toenails for me when I was hugely pregnant. That’s love.

Favorite thing about the opposite sex: nice hands. ‘Nuf said.

Jenny February 11, 2010 at 8:06 am

Hope you were able to recharge your brain a bit, I hate the feeling of not being able to make coherent sentences after a long day…

I’m not even GOING THERE with my “new” boy…we are not official and I really don’t want to approach the Valentine’s Day that bad? haha

Worst kiss?? Would you know what I meant if I used the term “tongue wrestler”..sickness

Love eyes and a nice manly voice and intelligence!

Michal February 11, 2010 at 8:56 am

Cheetahs yum!! This v-day im a single lady and lovin in for sure! :)

Katie February 11, 2010 at 9:20 am

Where the heck do you find nearly naked pcorn? I can only find kettle or the kind slathered in fake buttah. Gotta do something about this!

My dad AND Ari will be my dates… we three are spending the weekend together. Bonding time.

Susan February 11, 2010 at 9:45 am

Ha, I can only imagine the Google searches you’re going to get now after writing this post ;)

And I am totally planning to eat something verrrry similar for dinner tonight!! Except maybe with squash fries. Now I’m looking forward to it :)

My Valentine will be the best friend that I’m visiting in Halifax. I also have a blogger meet-up scheduled!

My worst kiss was in grade 7 when my boyfriend swallowed my face. He had a huge mouth, and completely sucked my nose and chin off.

Most romantic gesture? I’m blank. But I hate romance. It makes me gag.

Best feature is shoulder/arms/back. A strong upper body to hug me with :) (or carry me out of burning kitchens with…)

Susan February 11, 2010 at 9:51 am

Excuse me, are you the female Michael Scott Holly? Girl, you are hilarious!

My valentine is my pops too. Dads rock.

Catie February 11, 2010 at 11:41 am

True story: my brother looks like Jake Gyllenhaal. But he’s too young for you, I think … Now, if only I looked like Maggie. ;)

samantha February 11, 2010 at 12:14 pm

men’s hands ROCK my socks off. they gotta look rugged and like they do hard work. no lotiony baby man hands for this girl!

Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete February 11, 2010 at 12:44 pm

Usually, I’m not a fan of Jake, but that pic IS pretty hot! haha. I’m glad you are enjoying the chocolate! That totally reminds me that I’m out. I need to get more!

I have a valentine, but he is deployed ;(

But, I’m going to London and drinking myself silly at the little pubs so it sort of makes up for it. ;) Well, not really about the drinking, but I need to have a beer in one of the pubs and take a pic to make him jealous! ;)

Happy Valentines Day!

Naomi(onefitfoodie) February 11, 2010 at 2:18 pm

anything that makes you want to jump on a stipper pole after eating, must be good :)

best feature in the opp sex, I think that would be his smile :) I love when a guy smiles at you and it brigtens up the room. I also love if they are a good dresser. there is something to be said about how aguy outs himself together!!

I do have a valentine its my BF of 1 year but we are going to be in canada with his whole family, I dont sense anything romantic will be giong on LOL

chocolatepickle February 11, 2010 at 4:30 pm

There must be something in the Wisconsin air because I am hoarding any chocolate I can find today! Yours looks delish:)

And of course your dad ALWAYS counts as a Valentine….I’m 29 and married and my parents still send me Valentines:)

Jessica February 11, 2010 at 5:22 pm

Your posts are genius. I love you, and all those little (slyy and not so) references to the strippass out there!!

You’ve got me craving a pb/banana breakfast sammie like no other! And some cheetahs. Maybe popcorn, an omelet too would be nice :-D hahah

I have no valentine this year (besides my dad!), my worst kiss evahh involved a boy who reminded me of a TURTLE (chomp chomp, ewww….), and i adore some pretty eyes and good smile on MA man (hellllo bradley cooper!) !!


BroccoliHut February 11, 2010 at 5:23 pm

I think one of the best features in men (or at least something I pay a lot of attention to) is their teeth. I don’t know why, but I go weak at the knees at the sight of some pearly whites.

Mimi (Damn the Freshman 15) February 11, 2010 at 6:34 pm

My worst kiss was easily when a guy kissed me right after drinking milk. I nearly gagged into his mouth…though it would have served him right.

You are making me crave those cheetahs!

Cindy February 11, 2010 at 8:08 pm

ohhhhh, I am still stuck on the worst kiss part. Can’t even imagine.

sorry you have to remember that for eternity!

Hope you have a GREAT weekend chica!

Heather February 12, 2010 at 10:44 am

no valentine for me, per se, but my male coworker and I ARE going to the bar saturday night with every intention of doing pink-colored shots at midnight ;)
