so most recently i was able to get away for a few days, well a week to be exact, and i decided to go to new york city. i've been there lots of times before, even lived there as a kid and as an adult, but its been a while (like the last time i updated this thing hence the title of this entry) and i had to meet one of my closest and best friends, jessica's son auden. lets talk about this for a minute...so i show up to they're apartment in williamsburg, get buzzed thru the front door and this 2 and a half year old kid is waving at me and saying "hi steve" from the top of the stairs wearing only a short sleeve button shirt. no pants, no diaper...nothing. i thought it was the funniest thing at the time and envied him for his complete sense of freedom and not being ashamed to be hanging out like that, even on a cold new york night. he talks like crazy, he loves tom and jerry which he calls "kitty, mouse", apparently he like lady gaga alot, he loves metal, loves mary poppins, loves this song, doesnt eat meat, cant say the word truck so he calls them fucks, likes to play drums, knows how to use an iphone better than me and loves to take pictures.
speaking of pics, here he is along with some that he took himself. enjoy.
he's showing me "kitty, mouse" here. btw, "kitty, mouse" has always been one of my favorite cartoons.
then we went to the mccarren park for a picnic
the kid's got a natural talent for photography but he's gotta learn not to put his dirty ice cream riddled fingers on the lens. from this point on the rest of my pics have this hazy, dream-like look to them which i happen to think is actually pretty cool. who needs filters.
ahh bellinis. my new favorite drink. i had about 6 of these at a little bistro called lokal next to the park. mmmm...very delicious. the drinks, i didn't actually eat there but i'm sure the food is good.
thats it for now. i got more so stay tuned. i promise it won't be long. in the meantime....
