If I had the time and energy, I would start a new blog consisting of pictures of my feet in different places. I think it could be awesome and amazing and perhaps possibly mysterious if I posted the photos without descriptions. It wouldn’t always be feet in front of a landscape, it might be feet stepping on things and feet with different shoes and for some reason I actually think this would be cool. And now that it’s on the internet, if you like your feet, I suggest you make a go for it. Who knows, there may even be a book deal in your future as they seem to be giving those away these days like they’re candy.

And now that I got that off my chest, I can talk about the weekend. This weekend was a many adventure. I got to see a lot of people I know who live in Michigan, people I didn’t know until I made friends with people in New York from Michigan too. And Michigan people are some good people. I also got to see one Michigan girl, Abby, whom I’ve known since we were babes. That is her feet in the above left with my feet above right as we both catch some rays at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday. I love Brooklyn Bridge Park and I can walk there from my new apartment and I plan on taking well advantage of that this summer. By the way if you look reallllll hard and squint your eyes just right, you can almost see the Statue of Liberty. I don’t understand how cameras work because when I sit there I can see the Statue clear as day and then when I take a picture the only thing clear as day is my feet. But it’s there, I promise.

City feet picture number two:

Miss Tan Feet on the left, Kelly Purkey, and I hung out in Central Park Sunday for some more rays (although, cloudy) and some good old-fashioned girl talk. And maybe a nap. I’m not sure what I’m lacking in my life, really. Maybe just another pair of feet.

Abby is Greek. I like Greek food (study abroad, what?). We are great friends.

When I first moved to the city, Abby visited me and we went to Astoria to meet up with her Greek friend and he took us to a fabulous restaurant where we ordered what felt like the entire menu. Yesterday we went on an adventure to Bay Ridge to go to Agnanti Meze.

I have a takeout menu in which Abby starred everything we ordered, because she did all the ordering and I was just happy to be there.

The only thing I made us order was a Greek salad, which you could say is a boring thing to order, but traditional Greek salads are pretty much my favorite thing in the world.

I love tomatoes, cucumbers, and FETA!

This is ntakos: Cretan rusk, tomatoes, feta, olives, capers, oregano and olive oil. Abby says she cannot buy Cretan rusk anywhere in Michigan and she really wanted to try it, so we made sure Agnanti had it on the menu before we went.

Kolokythokeftedes Mykonos: zucchini and cheese croquets that were really good.

Beef bourek, which was maybe my favorite. The crust was homemade and phenomenal. I would order this again.

We also got vegetables pikilia: fried zucchini, eggplant, peppers and garlic mashed potatoes. Basically we got a lot of food.

There was a huge family sitting next to us and they kept ordering more and more food and it was kind of hilarious. The servers would come out carrying a bunch of plates and go back to the kitchen and come back out with their arms full of more. That’s just the Greek culture though. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and they ordered a bunch of appetizers and THEN the main course. I love Greek food. And I love Abby. She has left me now and I am very sad. She’s going to move here and have a classy housewarming party and make a ton of Greek dishes and it’s going to be great. Come back to Agnanti with me soon, Abby!

Happy New Year from me and Miss Abby V.! She came back with me from Detroit for New Year’s and our night turned out pretty okay. We spent the whole day yesterday shopping and then made our way to a blackjack party in Brooklyn to ring in the New Year but there was really no blackjack at all. There was one table. It was strange. New Years is always so hit or miss.

We left that party shortly and went to an apartment in the East Village.

At that party we took pictures in the hallway and hung out on the stairs:

Ok, so that’s not all we did, but that’s the only things I have pictures of! It was an interesting evening, to say the least. I had a good time, though. I’m glad that it turned out the way it did, even though it ended up nothing like what we had planned, and I’m even more glad that today I’ll be giving my feet a nice break. Happy 2010, y’all!
