The first tortilla on Valencia

Alison Abramson (yes, the Alison from The Price is Right) has made the first Tortilla Espanola ever to be made in our Valencia (St) apartment! This picture is not the actual tortilla we will soon be eating while watching Raiders of the Lost Ark in Dolores Park, but it is a fair representation.

Tortilla Espanola earned the prestigious "Todos Los Dias" distinction from Mark during our recent trip to Europe (Check out this film for a similar trip to Spain). It is essentially a thirteen inch diameter by one and a half inch thick omlette filled with potatoes and onions. As if that wasn't carb enough, the best way to eat it is inside a baguette. Mmm. For some reason, the tortilla will cost you about 7 bucks for a slice at local tapas joints even though the ingredients are, as mentioned, potatoes onions and eggs. The whole circular kabudle would only set you back about 5 or 6 bucks in Spain, not including the plane ticket to fly and eat it. Plus, you get no baguette to eat it in around here. Sad, really.

In other news, the Bay Area Playwrights Festival has kicked off in town. I hit the first reading last night and am planning on catching almost all of the plays if I can. If you are a new play reading fanatic, come check it out. Some good shit to be seen for sure.

Or, my play is now selling tickets through August 20th! Woo! Any it may go longer than that. Nutty fabulous! info and tix here of course

Hi Peter, one tip: do you want to beat Mark in your next tennis match?... Ask Allison for another tortilla and let Mark try it few minutes before the match. :)
