Friday night was the accoustic show at Desmonds Tavern. This band, the Av Club, had their van stolen. Since they are super nice guys, Chadd decided to throw together a benefit show for them. Basically all our friends got together with some accoustic guitars and got drunk and played silly songs. It was a blast...
to prove it....
Suki and I were drunk =)
Two Steinways and Charles playing the bongo...what?
Grath playing one song and calling it a night.
Adam singing theme songs of 80s tv shows. Hilarious!
After the show, everyone went to Grath's place for some more fun. 8 of us piled into Azeem's car and upon arrival, Carla, Jenelle and Chris had a threesome...
Theres also a picture Jenelle has of all us attacking Joe. Poor Joe.
Around 3am, Carla, Chadd, Oliver and I left and Carla and Chadd got badass and touched the lock... This ornate lock on the front door of Grath's building had this strange sign on it saying "DO NOT TOUCH LOCK", which was kinda weird since it was the only lock to the front door... ok...
The 4 of us got on the train, hit up a diner, and Oliver and I were fast asleep by 4am.
Saturday was "Xmas in the City" day.
Chris, Suki, Jenelle, Joe, and Melissa all went ice skating while Kelly and I watched ($17 is A LOT for ice skating). This was at Wollman Rink in Central Park.
We spent the day just hanging out, ate dinner at a surprisingly good diner, and saw lots of Xmas-y things, like:
snowflakes on buildings
and St. Patricks Cathedral
However, most of our time was spent at Toy R Us staring at the dinosaur..
playing with legos...
or hanging with Darth Vadar.
Nintendo World is also a great place to make friends...
I wanted these toys so badly but I was good.
After the city, we called Chadd, Carla, and Oliver (who spent the day studying for finals because hes an awesome student) and told them to meet us at Chris' apartment. We took the train back to Astoria and we amazingly ended up on the same bus as the 3 of them, so it became our official party bus.
At Chris and Jons we Wii-ed it up...
Cooked omlettes at midnight...
and watched X-men with rifftracks... which I fell asleep halfway through.
Then we had a repeat of last night and Azeem once again piled us all into his car and drove us to our respective drop-off locations.
This weekend was a blast as usual. Next weekend is the Delay show at City Island, and then on the 20th I get on a plane for FLORIDA.... I cant wait!!!!
Luckily this has tired me out.. so I think I'm getting back into my bed with my kitty and my Oliver. I have nothing to do today but hang out with the 2 of them, and I couldn't be happier.
