i don't stop

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

how the heck am i supposed to recap last thursday, friday, saturday, sunday and monday?

i don't think it's possible.

too much has happened, too much holiday cheer, too many interactions, too many memories with too many cocktails to remember.

the days are all blurring together!


thank goodness for my camera.

how about i just post some pics and call it a day?

i am on vacation after all...

first stop of christmas eve at my thea (aunt) eros's house - that's thea eros, sissy and my cousin dina

christmas dinner at my thea joanna's house - my cousins nicolette and graceyn with our traditional holiday cracker thingys. we all end up eating dinner with paper crowns on our heads

peter, suzanne, thea joanna and cathi all having a dog party on the floor - four dogs running around while i'm trying to enjoy a post christmas dinner nap is, well, noisy.

yes, i know this pic isn't straight, don't even ask me how many times i uploaded it correctly only ot have it show up wrong. but considering this is the only real picture i took from saturday night i felt it was necessary to share. you see, this is the wine list from my favorite bar of all time, the geisen haus in north canton - dancing peanuts? 1/2 price meat and cheese plate when you purchase a bottle of wine? brilliant.

sunday brought me this present, my love ANG* who was visiting from chicago and i were lucky enough to spend the day watching the browns game with at blind pig - we had SO MUCH FUN - love her.

lara and mish wearing the best browns sweater i've EVER seen. too bad mish got bombed and traded it to natalie for a scarf - horrible decision! luckily, natalie gave it back to lara to give back to mish - we have it buddy, don't worry.

while the majority of my sunday was spent at blind pig, we also hung out at dive bar with the most awesome deagan, map room and abc tavern. the above pic of lara and jon playing in the snow outside of abc tavern was by far my favorite of the day.

monday brought my family's annual scavenger hunt where we had to do things like eat mcdonalds in a burger king, walk on cleveland avenue barefoot, find a statue of the virgin mary and the star of david, among other things, like the above pic... a team member (c-rossi) entirely on a retail store shelf

it was at this point where a team member had to share a hot dog with a non team member that we were sternly asked to leave belden village mall by security. apparently management doesn't allow scavenger hunts, they were literally radioing back and forth my teams location in the mall so that they could find us escort us out. it was absolutely hilarious.

post scavenger hunt in my mom's kitchen - yes, we have kitchen in greek spelled out on the wall - kouzina!

sissy, c-rossi and patrick - CCHS '01 represent. (not when i graduated, btw)

i feel like i'm missing pictures from so many things, like the drunch (drunk lunch) with the marinos and foradas girls, north canton bar hopping with all my NC friends, and meeting tons of fun new people on sunday.

you'll have that.

i also saw three movies:
-nine - not good, don't see it, well maybe rent it. kate hudson's number was my favorite, she actually surprised me.
-sherlock holmes - good, i recommend you go see it, it was fun.
-up in the air - VERY good, a must see. one of george clooney's best movies in a very long time
and anna kendrick was awesome.

ok, that's it - i'm done, i hate when blogging feels like a chore...

it's now tuesday and i have a very busy day of massages and cleaning in my future.

i love vacation.
