I will defend the name of Sally’s Pizza in New Haven til the death. As a born-and-raised New Havenite, it is my civic duty to inform all of those in a lesser standing that in the epic Sally’s vs. Pepe’s rivalry, Sally’s reigns supreme!
…Even if it means getting into accidental twitter battles with people on ABC reality shows.
SPOILER ALERT: I’M THE WINNER OF THIS SEASON OF THE BACHELOR!
My life is average.
A letter to a Friend in NYC, October 26th 2010
Want to go back home to Connecticut & play in the leaves & pick apples & pumpkins & drive up & down the shoreline.
Instead I will totally be riding home to my apartment on the subway tonight.
It is admittedly very rare that I have moments where I miss where I grew up (even though I relate things to CT a lot, and have that nerdy CT necklace that I wear all the time). Let me explain (since I realize that might not make sense): I look back fondly on that place and that time, and appreciate that I had those experiences, but it isn’t something I am longing to go back to, because I know I belong right here, where I am now. And I am content with that.
This picture I took, right down at Branford Point, where I spent many of my summers as a kid, closeby to my old house I grew up in, just reminded me that I am damn lucky I grew up where I did, and maybe—just maybe—I missed those experiences in this very place, just a little bit.
It’s beautiful there, no?
One of the other interns brought in all of this awesome soda from Foxon Park on Monday. The grape was the most amazing soda I had ever had. This one tastes like I’m drinking gum. I think I like it.
Ahhh Foxon Park! This is a Connecticut/New Haven thing! It’s the only soda you drink if you’re from CT. Foxon Park is the area of town I used to live in when I was a wee tot in the Have. I heard they were going to start going national with their distribution & I guess this proves it. SO AWESOME!
