I landed in Newark , New Jersey around 4 PM Friday afternoon. I went to my mother’s house for dinner (sorry, there will absolutely NOT be photos of my mother in this journal entry – so don’t even think about asking!!!) . Every Friday night, religious Jews do this thing called “Shabbat Dinner”. It really just involves saying a bunch of prayers and then eating…so yeah, that’s what I did. When I was in high school I loathed Shabbat dinner. Man. Having to do something with your mom and dad every Friday night when you’re young – and punk – is awful. But in my older age, it’s kinda fun and it makes my mother really happy. I don’t believe in 90% of the shit that is said in the prayers, but that’s not what it’s about at this point. There is actually one particular song that is sang on Shabbat that is a special praise for all the women at the table who “cooked and cleaned and prepared the meal all day.” It’s so amazingly against everything I stand for that it’s actually awesome.
After the dinner I went up to Manhattan and went to Jessie Lee’s party at Trash. I don’t know if you knew this, but Jessie doesn’t drink. She did when I first met her, but stopped shortly afterward. She is uh…”straight- edge”. This worked out very well for me…because as a party host, she got a free bottle of vodka, which conveniently got donated to me since she is all, you know, moral and stuff. I had a fun time…I drank and danced and saw a lot of old friends, and stayed out till like 8 am. I don’t go out and dance much in LA. For whatever reason I am just way too self-conscious there. The nightlife in New York is something I always miss when I am in LA. There just isn’t anything that compares to it out there.
Anyways, here’s a few pics from the party.
I slept till about 3:30 pm on Saturday. I can’t even remember the last time I did that.
Then on Sunday, I went shopping at one of my favorite stores in New York called “Top Shop” I got some high-waisted shorts and some new shoes and some other things in case you care to know. I did get a pair of bright orange shoes that I love, but I now have no idea what to wear them with. I need to buy a bright orange belt, or a bright orange bag or something. I hope this does not all come across as me looking like some kind of crack-head raver from the 90s. I need to find a way to pull off neon orange tactfully!!! I hope it is possible. All my clothing is black, and sometimes pink. I thought it was time for a change. Here’s me taking advantage of the Top Shop “personal shopping program” where they let you sit in a room while they bring you clothes and coffee. Anyone can do it. And it was AWESOME!
It was a beautiful day outside, too.
Well I’m in my New York office now; I took the subway here this morning. I love taking the subway so much that I took a picture of it:
I’m gonna leave soon and go back to New Jersey and spend Passover with my mom. To all my fellow pervy Jews reading my blog, have a Happy Passover!!!
