Holiday Hiatus

Much apologies for the holiday hiatus, but I spent much of that time running around to FL, CT, AC and to various parties all over the city.

Xmas was good times this year, Spent $300 in AC ($200 on gambling) and woke up early to drive to the city and get to work on time. I’ve been working 4-6 hour days the last 2 weeks and it’s wonderful!! After work no Xmas Eve I got on a train and headed to CT for the evening and following day. Not much to say, very relaxing, fun, quiet day w/lotsa presents. Here are a few pictures of both sides of the tree. Yea, that’s all presents for 5 people. (Click them for bigger pictures)

New Year’s Eve was spent dressed in a suit at a private New York City social club called the Core Club. One of my cousins rented out a room for the evening, and got too much food and too much alcohol. After midnight we hopped around for a bit.

Here are the pictures

Considering it’s not only my birthday (tomorrow), but also a new year, here’s a fun list.

Things I Learned this Year:

I learned that I hate button flies, they are really annoying at urinals, but boot cut jeans look good on my skinny legs
I learned Tori Birch shoes are just normal payless shoes with a big ugly circle on it. I learned that guys would look absolutely silly if they had those stupid circles on their shoes. However, I learned that a great Halloween costume for a guy would be to dress as one big Tori Birch Shoe.
I learned that 70% of girls are 30% nuts and 30% of girls are 70% nuts. I’m comfortable in the 5% nuts range.
I learned that Facebook is the new Myspace is the new Friendster is still pretty stupid.
I learned that you can be peer pressured into adding friends, just so you don’t insult the friend of a friend of a friend who you met drunk one night.
I learned that since I have not thrown out any shoes in the last year, I have way too many pairs, and have no more closet space.
I learned that “Lost” drives its viewers as crazy as Myst, the computer game, used to drive its players.
I learned that Love Actually is all about terrible, terrible relationships and should be renamed Lust Actually. Think about all the matches:
There’s the guy who’s in love with his best friends wife who he’s never talked to and who makes a tape of her so he can watch her whenever he wants
There’s the guy who’s thinking about cheating on his wife, dreaming of his secretary
There’s the guy and girl who don’t speak the same language, but somehow are in love
There’s the kid who never talks to the girl he likes, but devises a scheme to get noticed by playing the drums
There’s that kids dad, who meets someone but can’t talk properly yet somehow she still likes him.
There’s the woman and her coworker who never talk, but decide to dance together at the Christmas party and have sex after the party only to get interrupted by her psycho brother.
There’s the English guy who can’t get an English girl so he flies to the US and has a 4some with hot Americans just because he’s got an accent.
And there’s the Prime Minister, who’s in love with is secretary, but can’t really talk to her b/c he’s smitten.
The only real relationship in the whole movie is the 2 porn star stand-ins, who actually talk to each other, go on dates and meet each other’s families and whatnot.
To me, the whole movie is about lust, and obsession with someone that you’ve never spoken with or had a normal conversation with.
Speaking of move name changes, Charlie Wilson’s war was great, but the title should be changed to “Joanne Herring’s War.” The whole thing was her idea and she’s a lobbyist and a mistress. Maybe it should have been Prostitute Lawmaker’s War, because he just sold sex and war for money.
I learned that Fire Island is so much more fun than Belmar.
I learned that Barcelona is an amazing city.
I learned that I'm hot because I'm fly, and you aint because you not.
I learned that I suck at foreign languages because A) I can’t spell B) Languages and vocabulary are learned through repetition, not through smarts, and thus, you actually have to study to learn, unlike math based learning.
I learned that the Spear’s are the Beverly Hillbillies.

I reread your translation of the rap and once again laughed out loud. Spears is plural not possessive.
