Tenement - Your Life or Mine 

Dragging your heels this time 
So you can take an inch before- 
Someone takes a foot 
A couple miles, or even more 
Breathe, sing, laugh cry 

Is this your life or mine? 
Is this your life or mine?

TJ’s Pizza, Main Street in Asbury Park, NJ
Over the weekend I drove down to Asbury Park with fellow reviewer Katie C and John “Pickle” Tappen to see Lifetime play The Stone Pony! Being a bunch of pizza fiends, we decided to check out one of the local pizzerias as none of us had ever checked out the Asbury za scene on past trips. We did a quick Google search and found a couple highly rated spots. However, it took us stopping at three different places before we ended up getting any slices. First we went to Porta Pizzeria literally down the street from The Stone Pony, but they only serve full pies and had a wait time of more than an hour. No thank you. After that, we headed to an interesting sounding place called Crust & Crumble, but this time we couldn’t find it even though we were using a GPS. Annoyed, we headed for a third spot, TJ’s, and actually found some slices to refuel our stomachs. TJ’s had some high ratings online, so I was pretty excited!

The first thing that weirded me out about TJ’s was the fact that while they had single slices, only a sicilian pie was out at the counter. The rest were in a stack of pizza tray holders that you wouldn’t notice if you had never been there before. Why, I don’t know, because I had no idea they had buffalo chicken until I heard someone else ask and buffalo chicken is OBVIOUSLY something I want to try. Anyway, I ended up getting one of those and a pepperoni, Katie got a plain and a sausage, and Pickle got a pepperoni and a sicilian. I also bought a DRINK (which I never do) because they had Arizona Blueberry White Tea which is my fave Arizona drink.
Anyway, we were all pretty underwhelmed by this pizzeria. First off, they really skimped on the toppings. Look at Katie’s sausage slice, it has like two tiny pieces on it! She said it was great sausage, but what a tease. Both of my slices were the same, as I took a number of bites that had no topping in them which is total BS. I also was not crazy about the sauce. My pepperoni slice had a nasty sauce spot that looked like paste that I avoided like the plague. The crust also was nothing special, while the cheese was pretty good. Pickle noted that the distribution of cheese and sauce was really whack though, as there were some bites where he got one but not the other. LAME. At least it was cheap, with all of our meals averaging $6. I was expecting much better from a shore spot as notable as Asbury Park, but luckily the Lifetime concert and Wawa trip that followed later on in the nite made up for the forgettable pizza and made the trip totally awesome. I’d love to trip Porta one day, so hopefully I come thru on an off day next time! Now go listen to Bruce Springsteen.

Strange to say, moving to New York ended up bringing me closer to home. Berkeley ceased to be the city where i lived, and became instead a set of values and memories — a nationality. Suddenly, I was Californian, something I’d never been before. How wonderful it is to explain away your peculiarities by attributing them to some faraway place. Yet when I first arrived on the East Cost, I was surprised. The things i knew like the back of my hand seemed, to the people I met, quite strange. My stories were peppered with Russian names and political acronyms, references that New Yorkers didn’t get. As a result, I began to look at where I’d come from in a different light.

A pool of water gets lost in the ocean, but put it in the desert and it becomes an oasis, like Yula. That’s why it’s good to leave home.

This weekend I went to a Mean Girls party. The next morning I dressed up in 2 snuggies, and with a sword in hand was crowned spring fling queen I guess? The mouse ears on my head represents a crown.
