observations and stuff.

Posted By on November 6, 2012 in Loved Ones, there are pictures here, Thoughts and Feelings | 6 comments

I have often wondered if I will ever have kids who look as much like me as my brothers’ kids do.

Here’s a picture of me, and my niece Selah is right underneath.

And guys.

The trains have been back up and running near me since Sunday.


But the people traffic in the trains?

It’s been crazy.

It’s like everyone who was supposed to ride the subway at staggered times for the whole week it was closed has decided to ride it AT THE EXACT SAME TIME.

Of course, I met quite the character. He’s a singer and a designer and was standing very close to me. And not simply because it was crowded–this was one of the few NOT crowded train trips of late.

I mentioned that I have a boyfriend.

“Well now you have a boyfriend AND you have ME,” he replied.

Do I have a choice in the matter? I wondered.

As I left the train, he was literally shouting his phone number to me over the heads of the other passengers. Over and over again, he yelled: 847! 647! 3343! (or whatever the number sequence was) while I walked onto the platform and smiled and nodded.

So weird.

And look at this mural somebody painted on a door.

I love it.

Fantastic and random art makes me smile.

And it’s all over this city.

    Wow. Same big dark eyes, full lips, hair style, and that Latshaw chin–you could be sisters. Gorgeous. Since so many of you Latshaws look alike, I’m guessing that your kids will look a lot like you. That’s my expert opinion–I used to date a genetic scientist, you see. Well, it was actually only one date, and she spent the whole night making fun of me because I wasn’t as smart as her. But then she ended up passed out drunk and naked on the living room floor so I felt like even if I wasn’t that smart, at least I wasn’t passed out drunk and naked on the living room floor. Win. True story.

      I don’t know if having to see a pretentious drunk naked lady passed out on the living room floor is winning, exactly, but I will say that I am glad there was no second date! Ew. How rude. I can’t imagine going on a date and MAKING FUN of the person who is kind enough to take you to dinner in the first place! Not classy, lady; not classy at all.

    Lol Rob! Yep. I suppose book smarts don’t mean you have the best decision making skills!

    Jess, you have a beautiful family 😀

    And you make me want to move to NY.

    Actually, I’ve been thinking about trying to plan a weekend trip up there. I don’t know how or when, but I want it to happen.

    • jessica November 7, 2012

      Perhaps you WILL move to NY, Vita!

      Then I’d have another friend here–yay!

      And a weekend trip would be a good start, at least;)

    Yeah, I did a double-take a few profile pics back on your niece. You know how people sometime don’t post themselves in their profile pic, but post a picture of someone else significant? That’s what I thought she did, and had to really look to make sure. I guess someone has been taking hairstyle and makeup lessons from her aunt lately. 😉

      Haha, well she’s lovely, so that’s quite a compliment–thank you! 😉
