Ronan’s Party - Round 2 + 1 Pizza Party

Thanks to Ronan for the invite to his x-mas party. It was a lot of fun.

Thanks to everyone for coming to Ronan's x-mas party. You made it lots of fun.

Megan having some of the juice mixture. Also, everyone should tell her "congratulations on your promotion!" She's now a Program Manager (? - Manager of some kind) at AIAChicago.

Frances on the same juice mixture.

Noah's shirt really isn't as crazy as my camera makes it appear...


SME - Queen of the Coat Pile

Nothing is more embarrassing than showing up to a party and someone is wearing the same outfit...

Okay, here's the real picture of Ronan (party host), Nick (roommate), Megan (girlfriend), and Cliff (friend).

Karli and SME. Karli really made the party by bringing one of the 30 bottles of Apple Pie from the fridge.

Typical. I think Frances and I have taken about 1,000 variations of this picture since I got my digital camera a couple years ago.

Part of Karli, SME, Mike, John(?), Matt, & Matt.

This picture about sums it up. Ronan had a work party that moved to his house and he stole about 80 lbs. of chicken. Sorry Mike...

Party remains

Megan, Tyler, and Mike. Notice Megan's ninja moves as she leans out of the way of Tyler thrusting his beer.

Chicago Cultural Center dome restoration. All the Tiffany Glass has been removed for fixin' up. So, it will be another 100 years before you'll see it like this again.

If I sent out x-mas cards, this would be the image. So, Happy x-mas! I took this on Eastwood just west of Kedzie. I was over there because I found some girls purse on the train and returned it to her. It was a X-mas miracle (for her) and a good deed of the day (for me).


Karli showing Nick, SME, and the rest of us how to bowl on the Wii. 236 points, Karli! Are you serious?

Andrew, Katie (behind Andrew), Karli, and Nick.

This is what pizza parties are all about.

A couple of the many pizzas killed that night in 2007. It was a dark day for slices...

Andrew's new MySpace photo. I like to think in 300 years art critics will look back to the early days of the internet revolution and say "he was a great artist for the medium of his time." Most likely, they'll say, "this jerk wasted too much time on the computer..."

More Wii action after Jackass 2.5 and YouTube on the big screen TV.

Noah (hand w/ beer), Andrew, Katie, Tennessee, Angela, Brent, and Gracie!

That's about it. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas or whatever you celebrate. I'm going to New York for the holidays. If you happen to be watching the Bills/Giant game on Sunday, look for me in the crowd.

Ronan’s Party - Round 1

Thanks again, Ronan for the invite to the party last weekend and this weekend...

Taking shots

Megan and Ronan talking over the finer details of the Oscar the Grouch shirt.

Frances and Noah

More Frances, more Noah

Me and Francy

Somehow, this became my shot glass.

Me and my prize from the White Elephant gift exchange

Angelic Noah and his Homer Simpson prize

Frances' toe sock prize!

Noah and Frances struggling down North Ave. after the ice storm. Oh, how many times did we fall down? Then the traumatic experience of missing the bus stop with the racist guy bothering you...

It was good seeing everyone last night.

"Shoot A Pickle!"

Howdy Y'all!

The Hibarito from Baranquen on California and Wabansia. "Hibarito" translates into "hillbilly." I guess in Puerto Rico, people are so poor on the interior of the island that they can't afford bread. But, they have more plantains then you can imagine. So, they crush and fry plantains and use that as bread instead. Super good. Super unhealthy...

Going back home after seeing "American Gangster" in Oak Park with the free movie tickets Megan won. I still have to use my tea party I won...

Good Stuff House. Says it all.

It's been a few years since I've seen real snow that sticks around. It feels like home.

Richmond Street.

Cleaning off Saaby-McSaaberton.

The "One of a Kind Show" at the Merchandise Mart. Pretty much an indoor arts fair. There was some pretty good stuff and lots of good food samples for the holidays.

The Merchandise Mart convention atrium.

Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza. This is an annual German Christmas market that sells all kinds of toys and trinkets along with brats and hot spiced wine.

Nick got his x-mas gift of a Nintendo Wii early. So, that means you'll see everyone punching each other by accident playing video games and the Murder House from now on.

Megan simulating fishing

Nick with the remote controlled x-mas tree behind him

Megan trying to figure out how to play a game where you have to match up people's poses...

That's about it for now. Noah and Frances, you will see pics from the party last night next time. I had these edited before we left and didn't feel like adding more...
