its like baba ganoush and burnt hamster hair

January 14, 2009

so….its been a month since ive updated…and almost a month since ive been home in la. this trip really made me want to move back. i adore new york, and once im there it feels like home, but i miss my family. ive started this year with daily workouts, lots of time with old friends and family and tons of cooking. it hit me that im missing out when my niece turned 13 on january 2nd. she talks on the phone with boys and looks like a total babe, oh and shes taller than me. the fact that ive missed her growing into a teenager bothers me, but not as much as it does when she asks me  questions about boys like im all knowing, when i honestly still dont have an answer to any of her questions. made me think that not only do things never change, but new york might be stunting me. im starting my year off on the right foot. im over going out all the time, its making me look old. the sooner i become a better person and get my life settled the sooner i can just truly live.

today it was 83 degrees in los angeles-new york was 28. GROSS.  the following photos are all pretty bad…they are all from a couple really cheap disposable cameras 

these are from before i left for new york, my kitchen door was frozen shut, but i got a shot of our backyard through the window. it looked beautiful.

we do a gift exchange every year, and make it into this really funny game. no one knows what any of the gifts are. the theme this year was “things you cant live without”. i ended up with what my brother brought, ESPN magazine, matches and toilet paper. typical.
