i’m in a funk. its so cold. i walk a half hour to school, sit in my classes, walk a half hour back, do some homework, walk aimlessly around the the apt until i finally get tired. but im back! and with waaaay too many pictures. so lets get to it shall we? i’ll start where i left off, the final days of being in la. heres my last breakfast at home with chuck and marg. my mom made really good pancakes and made a nice little set-up. lastbreaky.jpgthe pancakes marg made were faaaaaabulous. she baked them instead of cooking them in a pan. its a good trick.finalpanckae.jpg  we sat in the yard together, my mom and i beginning  to get emotional about my leaving the next morning. chuck was grumpy as usual.chuckfialbreaky.jpg when i was in high school my parents and i would go to dinner the night before school started again from summer, winter or spring break. we call it the last supper and now we do it the night before i go back to new york. its always at chop house and its always incredible. its something that is really important to me. heres mr. happy again.chucklastsupper.jpg the oysters are a crucial part of the mealoysters.jpgso is the souffle.  dessert.jpg back in new york. i missed it. found out wu-tang had followed me from la to ny.wu-tangballs.jpgthis time i went with may, keira and alicia. 2207891519_2f1c8d96c2.jpgi dont know what we are doing, but it was fun. i missed my girls a lot.2207930081_dedace3ec1.jpg i went to my first chief show. it was like every west side kid from la who now lives in new york in one room. i actually had a really good time. ive never heard their music but i really enjoyed it. cheif1.jpgthese boys are too cute.cheif31.jpg watching matt, mickey and brady sing and dance along was really cute.cheif4.jpg then came the harold hunter 2nd annual fundraiser.  local stores and bars get basketball teams together to compete against one another. this year they also had dodge-ball and a buffalo wing eating competition. heres a bad picture of one of the games.haroldbball.jpgthe frank 151 team won.  frankwinners.jpg one of my fav lil girlsmeelan.jpgmy darling angela was there. shes such a babe!angela.jpg ronald, harolds brother. i love him. hes always been really sweet to me. meronald.jpg the wing contest was hilarious. wings.jpg dave broke his tooth off on a bone. ndb.davebrokentooth.jpgdan sorting through his bones. danbones.jpg aron had a party at the rec center. there were cameras filming for the his show everywhere, which was a lil weird.camman.jpg alicia and i stopped by for a bit.alicicasimodave.jpg dj booth reccenteryellow.jpgsimon was hooked up to a mic. weeeeird.simonmic.jpg theres this cardboard cut out of aron that is HILARIOUS.  we had fun with that for a bit. i brought my own bottle of red.mearoncardboard.jpg farmerfarmeraron.jpg heron, one of my favorite humans, was there.  we went to parsons, and now hes killing it. dudes blog is awesome, his style is right on and so is his design sense. seeing someone who studies what i do doing things is so inspiring to me. not only that hes a really sweet guy. too bad hes not good looking. heronhot.jpg another one of my favs, weirdo dave. hes 2 tuff, i’m 2 funky.2tuff2funky.jpg shot-gunning beers, COLL-EGE!
