so like i told kalli, i’ve developed this shyness of taking pictures of random strangers.
like they’re minding their own business, doing their thing
and then i feel rude coming up to them and snapping away,
like they’re spectacles or something.
so i’ve been shooting a lot of random, non-human pictures recently.
printed two rolls today and mailing out thirty-five of them as postcards
to those of you who requested them.
i haven’t been in boston since i left three and a half years ago.
kalli was at work and linh was passed out, jet lagged
so i took the red line to a little coffee shop in central square
and sat in front of their window with my mint mocha and laptop for a few hours,
watching people go by.
i also finished up a sixteen-page distribution booklet.
not sure what to write. about boston i mean.
i’m a little sad, a little nostalgic.
a lot of memories attached to this city.
not sure what to write,
but i know that i did miss boston and i’m glad to be back,
even if it’s only for a short time.
also a lot happy
because i get to hang out with my two loves, linh and kalli.
tomorrow we leave for new york.
above linh’s bathroom sink. made my morning teeth brushing happy time.
currently listening to:
next week we’re having an “international karaoke night.”
jimmy said he’s gonna sing a punjab love ballad.
this morning started off with an 8am phone call from jeremy
to remind me that i’m a year closer to menopause.
then i got teased by my coworkers for the flowers delivered to my desk with the note:
“happy birthday veanne, the best girl in the world. unf! love, your secret admirers.”
i’d say fess up now, but i think i know who the culprits are *ahhem*
(i really miss you guys, btw)
i’ve been pretty overwhelmed with work/school
and i have a deadline for various things tomorrow;
was going to reschedule dinner at miyaki’s with vi for another night,
but she called to tell me she was already on her way.
i thought it was just going to be the two of us….
but guess friggin’ what!
sixteen friends were sitting at a table, waiting for us.
i was befuddled for a good three seconds before it hit me.
i was really, really surprised. tina and vi, i love you guys.. sneaky little bitches.
he had me stand on a chair while everyone cheered me on.
“drink it. it’s just water.”
am i gullible or what?
“when i say sake, you say bomb! sake -” “bomb!” “sake -” “bomb!”
a big *huG* and thanks to everyone who made my birthday such an awesome one.
