come and stay a while...

it's no secret that since moving to the Big Apple Brando and I have been running a sort of cultural exchange program; meaning, basically, that we have frequent visitors from far and wide. and I love it!  not only does it bring temporary roommates to hang out with, but it gives me an excuse to go out and explore this big beautiful city some more. 

in August we were lucky enough to have two sets of visitors and tons of great weather, so I spent a lot of time galavanting around NYC and eating pizza. (the pizza is a big tourist attraction.) here are some pictures from our recent friend-time adventures...

I'll never get sick of visiting Central Park, or walking the Brooklyn Bridge. or of the pizza, of course. 
more friends are coming in just two days, and I can't wait!

so if you're looking to come to New York at some point... hit me up. take advantage. we'll eat food and play bingo. you'll love it. 

what's new, pussycat?

well, hello, September! 

it hasn't really sunk in that summer is technically supposed to be over; for one, it's been hot as balls. also I've been too busy to notice! Labor Day weekend was marked with visits from far-away friends and plenty of cocktails, and this past week was a blur of meetings and meet-ups and exhausted evenings spent falling asleep in front of a netflix screen. still feels like summer to me!

to top off this crazy week, Brandon and I joined a friend in Jersey City for a house party. if there's one thing I know about parties, it's that you should always wear an item of cat-themed clothing.

segue!

(I feel like the writing in this post- and I use that term loosely- properly demonstrates how tired I am/have been. relihbnoFDCEJKRNDS888 --see that was me falling asleep while typing.)
