I came back to Downtown with the American guy I met in Paris. But see, the thing is, when you're with someone from a different background, like, an extremely successful porn star in Los Angeles, namely, my new boyfriend, Joe, it's really hard to eat with him. I have no idea what those weird low this low that 0 trans fat things in his fridge are. He said, in order to keep his smoking hot ass and perfect cock in shape, he needed to work out 5 hours a day and only eat organic everything like everybody in California. So when he opened my fridge and found those frogs, chicken feet and pig kidneys, his calls kind of slowed down. Yeah, I know. I'm disgusting. But come on, I only eat snake gulls every other year. The rest of the year, I want these Hong Kong food better than a meal in Ortolan.
