Morgenstern’s Ice Cream



I was excited to see Nicole, it’s been some time since I last saw Nikki. We were bonding over wine at my old apartment where she shared the news of her recent engagement. I’m so excited for her, she has so many great things going on, including her almost finishing school. When she proposed we have an ice cream date I was all for it. The humid was a big deciding factor as well.
Her original plan consisted of hitting 3 fine ice cream shops. The first one being Morgenster’s around Bowery. Now, I’m not a huge of ice cream, I only like a little bit (Unless I’m really heart broken and watching chick flicks) but when the shop attendee handed me a tester of the black coconut ash flavor, I was with it! Nikki went for the creme brulee and that too was bomb af. Mine was pretty messy though, my tongue was black and I had dark stains all over hands… so worth it.
We took the longest route possible to our next stop, Big Gay Ice Cream, over by Saint Marks Place. She ordered the salty pimp.. who’s name is absolutely hilarious, while I opted out and called it quits. I think I had enough sweets for a day.
I always love catching up with Nikki…. maybe next time we can have a cheeseburger date, now that I won’t get tired of eating!

Jaqueline’s Bubbly

I don’t understand why I keep getting scheduled to work the shittiest hours. I came to work for a simple 4 hour shift, what a waste of my time, and whats worse, it cut my day in half, so I arrived at  5pm to leave at 9…boooo…

Best thing about today was, that I had my Nikki baby waiting for me to get home. It’s girl night, and she arrived with a bottle of Rose, named Jaqueline. So of course, we did what girls do best, sip and talk about boys. Yes, of course we catch up with work, school, and that other stuff, but let’s face it, sex is the most interesting topic of them all.

It didn’t take long for us to start squirming and getting all excited because our Paris trip has just been decided. And yes, this is going to be a group trip, most of us haven’t left the country so …. aaaaah, super excited!

Nikki and I started looking at places to rent out, and what we want to do, what we want to see. Ugh, there’s so much to plan, and even much  more to save. Right now, most of us have already purchased our one way ticket there, so let’s see how we’re getting back!

I looked through all of my empty shoe boxes to finally find what I was looking for. Nikki and I ended our night reminiscing on old high school photos. Laughing at skinny we are were, and what the hell were we thinking in wearing that.

What kills me, is that Nikki and I live so damn close to each other, we’re going to have more often, even if I have to drag her out of her house to do so. (love ya!)

Nikki Baby, Birthday Girl

Happy Birthday to the Beautiful Nikki!

Nikki baby is officially a quarter century old. Someone is getting old! The plans were to meet up at The Village Underground, but when Chris and I arrived it seemed to be a comedy club instead. So confusion was all over our faces, especially since we were the first ones to arrive, and that never happens.

We walked into Fat Black Cat, some bar, lounge type of place that was packed. There was a pool table in the back, and another connecting room which gave us better space for our bigger group once everyone slowly started to arrive. Our first waitress was a bit bitchy, because instead of informing us that we would h ave to order something, we got kicked out a “reserved” table. Something we later found out that didn’t even matter, as long as you were ordering something, anything. Que bruta. (what a dumb fool)

Our table was filled with drinks, chicken wings, fries, mozzarella sticks (yum!) and even though everything was great, I was ready to get moving, I didn’t want to sit down all night, I wanted to move… hell, I wanted to dance.

The birthday girl was ready to shake her stuff too, we ended up walking a few blocks to some spot, that I’ve never heard of, never got the name, and would probably never go to again. The music was dope, but I felt like I was in a teen bash. The girls looked young, while the men looked old. Creepy.
My cousin Frankie is in town, and had to tell him to come through and grab a few drinks with me. He and Chris were buying each other drinks the whole night.Chris would disappear, come back with beers, while Frankie will get the waitress to bring shots to the table. They did this all night, talk about cuteness.

Who needs a guy when Nikki and Pia will forever be the dance partners you want in life. We kept grinding on each other playfully and innocently, like always!

Once they played reggae, I knew I got excited!
Nikki my love, stay gorgeous inside and out, you deserve the world.

Happy birthday!

An African, a Jew, & an Asian Walk into a Bar

2minxinx2minxinx2minxinxWelcome home Pia!

Pia is back in NYC from L.A. for about a week. Which means we have to jam pack her stay with a whole bunch of hanging out and drinking. I mean, it’s what we do best. I headed to Williamsburg to met up with Nikki and Pia, dinner at SEA it was. I’ve passed this place many times and never stepped inside. I’ve seen the swings from the windows and I now I had the chance of jumping in .

Pia looked gorgeous and I missed her so much! The girls ordered sangria while I decided to go with a Pina Colada. It tasted like the cocitos icees just with liquor. Yum. Since I wasn’t really that hungry I decided to go with Sushi, while Nikki had chicken and Pia had a fish with the whole face attached. Creepy!

After our meal we headed to Berry Park, and since it was Sunday it meant the streets were as vacant as ever. I swear I have never seen Williamsburg so empty. When we arrived at the bar, we got to chatting up a storm, laughing at some dude who was way too wasted for his own good. Who then later on busted his ass, which was hilarious. Then out of nowhere his friend decided to come towards us. Great, he sits right next to me!

Someone was a little too friendly, and I didn’t appreciate the way he would brush his hand over my shoulder whenever he attempted to speak. That’s if we even understood him, because he has such a thick accent, who he claimed was French.

Eh, I wasn’t impressed, but it seemed like he was pretty impressed with Nikki, because he kept flirting with her, while she just looked at him in confusion.

Then he did the horrible mistake of trying to guess what our nationalities were. Epic Fail! According to him, Pia was African, Nikki was Jewish and I was Asian. I don’t think I’ve heard anything funnier in the longest time. Wow! The balls on this guy.

I know I’ve been out of the dating pool for a long time now, but is this what happens?

Douchebag guys being overly confident, trying to find any reason to speak to a girl and worse yet, find a reason to touch her?

ew. I was so turned off, I excused myself from the table, returned my glass to the bar, and after that 3 second delay, I sat my ass right next to Pia which was on the other side of where he was. Because yes, he invited himself to sit down with us.

After my beer, Pia’s ginger beer and Nikki’s girly drink, it was time to  head out… but not before we took advantage of the empty streets and decided to go a little over board with pictures.

I guess that’s what happens when you gave girly dates in the first place.

See you guys soon!

Ps. That last picture, totally looks like Nikki and Pia are making out, which I thought was hilarious. I guess the angle I was in didn’t really help! hahahhaa, they’re gonna kill me.

Juliette and Friends

It was time to meet up with friends for dinner. The place.. Juliette in Williamsburg. I wasn’t really hungry, but I was ready for some laughs and some drinks. Something that always ends up happening when hanging out with this crew. I have known this bunch since my High School days, and though I don’t always see them often, it’s always a blast when together.

I was excited to see Nikki, since we ended up seeing each other at the Skyroom last month(see that post here), and we had more catching up to do. Girly stuff, you know, the good stuff!

I ended up going halfsies on a grilled chicken sandwich with fries with Chris, and ordered myself a glass of Bordeaux…okay 2 glasses!

Everyone was picking on Mikey, since he was sick, Ramon was telling us about his 32 days of soberness (super proud | personal choice), Jose was telling us how the highway constructions are ridiculous now a days, Chris is the one to blame for that, Cintia is now in charge of setting up the friend dates, Tatiana will be celebrating a birthday soon, Nikki wasn’t giving employees enough hours, and I am painting, like always.
Dessert was ordered, and it was like a big wheel of fortune where everything was spinning back and forth. Plates were being passed around back and forth and I fell in love with whatever Nikki ordered, which happened to be a chocolate cake with some vanilla ice cream and some walnuts on the side. Yummy!

After playing catch up with everyone, and most going home, 4 of us remained and we headed to a local bar with a German old school mid west type of kick to it. Craft beers, live performance by tuba players with an obvious fascination to Louie Armstrong.

I ordered a Blondie, I’ve learned that craft beer is way too good, but I’m not a huge fan of the bitterness, so I usually order a light Pale Ale. I’ve been learning about craft beer, but nothing will ever compete with my wine. I’m a wine lover forever.

I’ll see you guys soon, it a was good night with great people, no complaints here.

To The Sky

DSC06003It’s about time a girl had a little fun! My Nikki baby and I were ready for a girl’s night out. We decided to meet up in Times Square at the red steps, worst possible move right there. We should have known better. Never again. It took us about 15 minutes to find each other. Once we finally got our hugs out of the way, we headed straight to Sky Room.  It was beautiful. That view was exhilarating, and I had the perfect company to go with it. Nikki and I have known each other since High School and it;s been one of those relationships, where you automatically get along, yet don’t know much about the other person. It’s just always good times and better vibes. Tonight that all changed for the better, because we got to talking, and when I say talking, I mean… we were chatting up a storm! The environment was nice and chill, the music was playing right, we were sipping on some drinks, but it was time to dance. Something that I’ve been dying to do ever since I got back from Tennessee. Since we didn’t feel like waiting, mostly I didn’t feel like waiting. We decided to head out, hit up a liquor store for some diy drinks, and head to our local small lounge that is always ready to party.

I was dancing like there was no tomorrow. Oh man, when I tell you I needed that escape… I needed it. I was surprised that I knew every song and was singing as loud as I possibly could. I swear that DJ was working just for me tonight.

I actually had about 3 different guys come up to me, just striking up conversation, in a gentlemen  way of course. I was nice, but I was not having it. I just wanted to dance, and dancing doesn’t mean, all up on you.  I was in my element, and I was hair flipping everywhere!sig 2
