swagger like us

swagger like us – t.i. ft kanye west, jay-z & lil wayne over mia’s paper planes.

last night after watching obama – did you cry too? – my friend aaron and i went to dinner in little ethiopia which was beyond yums, its officially my favorite flavor of the month. we had the most ridiculous server who offered to feed us and breed us, good times. afterward we went to one sunset for this la direct mag party honoring his boy and super hip dj grant shapiro. there is an article about him so pick up your la directs and check it out if you have the chance, he is a g on the ones and twos.

other than dinner i didnt anticipate going out so i was basically in pajamas and a fedora, totally opposite the demo of this crowd. most of the girls were channeling lauren conrad, really done up, think curling ironed hair, shiny dresses, cleavage, tan, lots of eye shadow. happy to be comfortable i joined the dancing crowd who had some serious moves. the entire time i had my fingers crossed hoping that they would drop this song but it never aired. i made up for it this morning by dancing to it while getting ready.
