The Girl With the Lyme Disease

Posted by Andrew on Wednesday, December 29, 2010, In : Happenings 
Last month was Thanksgiving here in the States. Dips and I arrived home from a big lunch at Mike & Amy's place, lubed to the max. We cracked open some beers, and got into some serious shit-talking. Little did we know though, we were about to get an intriguing visitor....

See you, Dark Blue

I finally sold my car a few weeks ago.

A young Hispanic dude took it off my hands - he was buying it for his girlfriend. I told him he'd definitely get laid if he gave her this dark blue beauty. He laughed.

A couple of weekends ago, about 2 000 New Yorkers dressed up as Santas, elves, reindeer, Santa Palins and all sorts of other Christmas-y costumes and crawled from bar to bar... pretty much getting wasted.

It's become a New York tradition. This was my first time. And it's pretty damn awesome.

I don't remember the entire day to be honest, so this is a story best told in pictures.

And why not let New York's premier nightlife e-zine, Guest of a Guest, tell you all about here!

Stepping off the plane into a Woody Allen film

Fall in New York. 
Falling for New York. 
Much water has passed under the bridge since the last blogging. 
Much wisdom has been bantered about and now the old logging.

Where to begin? 

I found a fantasy existence for one night only in Portland, Maine - America's far northeast and home to a lot undiscovered and a feisty cat. It was a short stop after a long drive along a mind-bending mass of colours, red, yellow and brown. Fall in America - a vibrant last flourish before the onset of winter.
