New York - Day Two Hundred and Thirty-Six
A Jersey brewery road trip with some awesome folks.
One of my favorite things of this year was being introduced to Lana (not pictured) and Dave. They’re leaving tomorrow for Australia for four months and then Ireland (their respective homelands), and while I’m so happy for them, god damn it, I’m going to miss those buggers. Safe travels, friends, and I can’t wait til next time.
I did it!
I met my reading goal of 35 books this year this morning. I know I’ve been blabbing about this goal to almost anyone that would listen, but I have to say I’m inordinately pleased that I’ve accomplished it. In 2012 I only read 12 books because well, I did a lot of reading for work, and then I got laid off and my relationship with books became instantly fraught. But I decided that in 2013 I would reunite with books, and I’m so happy that I did. And just so I can brag, here’s the full list of what I’ve read (so far) this year in order.
6th Annual Friendsgiving, including the traditional introductory blessing from Justin via satellite, pre-dessert walk to the Hudson, and whiskey shot pit stop at the random New Jersey bar on the walk back.
Thanksgiving again! This was my third Friendsgiving, and I think I love each one even more than the last. And fellow Thanksgiving orphans, I cannot recommend the after-dinner, pre-dessert, digestion walk enough.
Me, IRL for Friendsgiving/Thanksgiving/Tom Hanksgiving prep.
Best group text to wake up to after seeing Catching Fire last night.
by request, attempting to document The Hair before I let somebody at it with scissors tomorrow. This is so totally the most death metal picture of me ever taken I don’t even know, feel like I need to get busy with a BC Rich and a couple of stomp boxes right NOW
Step aside, every other selfie ever. Okay?
