Attack of the FTPs!

FTP = Fucking Tree People.

I’ve been meaning to use that acronym as a headline and it was totally going to be used yesterday but I HAD to draw attention to my mockery of a person who changed the world instead, so not only did I have to come back and bring pics but I also had to use FTPs on the site. So here it is! Anyways, this is an acronym (acronyms DO exist outside of the military) used here at Rockefeller Plaza to discuss the ridiculous amount of tourists that have descended upon NYC, but especially here at Rockefeller Plaza and our world-famous tree. Literally, the crowds have gotten so damn plentiful ever since the Christmas Tree went up. And that mo’fo is huge and impressive and it’s not even decorated yet. I can’t even begin to imagine how crowded it’ll be after the end of the month when the lighting occurs. That’ll be something to see.

Okay, I don’t have too much else to say – I’ll elaborate a bit more on the pics below as we go through them, but it’s been a good couple of weeks. I hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving and I look forward to surviving the holiday season here in New York and hopefully also back home!

And now here are the pics from Mila’s wedding! It was great to see everyone again and you could tell Mila was relieved that the wedding went so well and everyone had a blast. I think she mentioned that was really her only concern going into the ceremony and she needn’t have worried. It was a fantastic affair. Great music (Hava Nagila at the beginning of the reception is SUCH a good idea) and great company and great food all combined wonderfully. Seeing Sveta and Mila again though was probably the highlight of seeing my friends again, although getting to see all of them pretty much rocked. That and seeing my family again makes me miss LA and home, but I can’t lie, when I got back to New York after a miserable red-eye flight, I was also happy. So I think I’ll be here for a bit – but one day, I’ll be back, West Coast-style.

And as a note about the flashback picture on the frontpage – I just crack up everytime I see it. And I miss my buds back in Colorado Springs. Because even though life is definitely different and better in many ways now, I still miss the hell out of my friends that I had in the Springs. I seriously wish I could just transplant their lives and jobs out here into NYC. THAT would be perfect. Because I still haven’t found that great group of friends or such to just hang with. And then that pic also has my house’s kitchen in it!!!! I miss my house!!!!! <sigh> Oh well…
