Ep 8: Reza gives us the down-and-dirty on diamonds, Rosh Hashanah, and GG and her lollipop!

Read the full transcript of Reza's blog, after the jump!

You guys just watched the eighth episode; I just watched the eighth episode, and we really have some important stuff to talk about. But actually the most important thing I want to talk to you guys about are my shoes, which we can’t really see, so I’ll talk them off and show them to you. How great are these boots? They’re business on the top, and party on the bottom! They’re my Prada mullet shoes! Aren’t they cute?

As far as the episode goes, my two favorite friends that love to indulge in the libation, specifically GG and MJ, are trying to have serious conversation about some really heavy shit, like morals and character, and to hear the two of them get after it like that is really fantastic, especially when MJ’s hair looked like she has just gotten nailed to the wall. Were you guys noticing all that stuff that was going on? And then GG rolls up to Omid’s house, and Omid had body for days! I wasn’t really paying attention to what GG was saying, because I was just concentrating on Omid’s yummy torso. And what is GG doing sucking on that lollipop? It makes me think she went over there know she wanted to suck on something, so she kept the lollipop in her mouth so she could abstain from sucking something else. I don’t know; that’s what I was thinking.Oh Diamond Water! Hello! How amazing was that ginormous diamond?! She was putting it there and there [points to his head] and I’d be putting it here [points to his pocket] and taking it the F out of there! Especially that big-ass one! It had my name all over it.

We get to New York, and honestly, I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so sick of crying. I can’t watch myself cry anymore. But it was a really amazing lunch I had with my Dad. And as close as we got last year, this lunch brought us that much closer. And I was so happy to have MJ and Mike and Asa with my at Rosh Hashanah which was so beautiful and so special to me. My east coast family is so amazing. And I’m serious, they switched my grandmother at the Old Folks’ home! I don’t know if she got a lobotomy, or took an ecstasy, or a Xanax, but something happened on the way to my Uncle’s house, because she was really,really amazing and we had the trip of a lifetime. We had so much fun, and I’m really happy that you got to take that trip with me.

I hope you liked episode eight as much as I did! Call me. Peace!
