you're just jealous you didn't think of it first 


my week. *more like 'my month' edition* 

it's been about a month since my last post, and there's a lot to cover. luckily, the holidays can be summed up here:
My Very Merry Happy '08

first thing i did back in the city, was hit the slopes with this happy couple. and remember, kids: watch out for vertigo...

sadly enough, swedensburg, brooklyn, lost two of its favorite children, as victor and nanna left us for their (stock)home. nanna will miss my jokes. matthew won't. picture courtesy victor ginsburg.

a few weeks ago, patrick manske made a cameo new york appearance, playing with the bruce robison band. here they are rocking (country and westerning?) out at hill country bbq. because of the dallas cowboys' loss earlier in the day, several of us drowned our sorrows in the bbq.

...getting the blood off your clownsuit!! get it!? huh!? get it!? clownsuit!? ...no...?

later in the week, aaRon took me to a church at columbus circle to see an orchestra. they played three pieces, including a piece by radiohead's johnny greenwood. the church was gorgeous, as was the music. actually, the crowd was pretty damn nice too. i think i'll start hanging out at orchestras more often...thanks, aaRon.

jacquie introduced us all to her new friend. meet myron. he likes discos.

...and his dance craze is sweeping the nation...well, at least it's big in williamsburg.

'suitable for all ages' my ass. just when you thought randy couldn't get any scarier...

osman reflected on her past year. happy birthday!!

remember the last time we saw reed on the L train? this was it. he left today in a mini-van for san antonio, texas. fare thee well, reed. it was a fun six-months. hope you come back.



other than that, how was the parade, jacquie o? 

osman. whacquie. jac attack. blogger maid. black jacquie. aunt jacquie. fussy. osinator. ow ow. 3333333333333333. you iphone whore.

YOU have a happy happy birt'day!

A big loss 

Heath Ledger

January 22, 2008 -- Actor Heath Ledger was found dead today in a Broome Street apartment, apparently from a drug overdose.

Ledger, 28, was well known for his role in "Brokeback Mountain," and he stars in the upcoming "The Dark Knight" Batman movie as the Joker.

He split last year from partner, Michelle Williams, with whom he has a daughter, Matilda.

When he was found in a bedroom this afternoon and pills were strewn across his bedroom, his housekeeper told police. It was unclear if it was an intentional or accidental death.

The housekeeper let in a massaeuse who tried to wake Ledger, and found him unresponsive at 3:20 p.m. The massaeuse then noticed sleeping pills strewn around his room and called paramedics at 3:26 p.m.

The father of one was pronounced dead at 3:35 p.m.
