12 of 12: August

Time once again for the 12 of 12, 12 photos to document my day on the 12th. This is based on an idea by Chad Darnell, and you can see other entries here.

I stayed at Kid Flash's place last night, so getting ready to get dressed is relegated to this pile of clothes. He hasn't given me a drawer yet... choices, choices.

He decided early on that he needed to help me a bit with the project this month so you are treated to this haggard portrait. Aren't I lovely in the morning?

Another Kid Flash special, wrestling me to the bed for another portrait.

Neither of us really had an agenda for the day so we decided to go to the movies. Here is a our breakfast of bagels and juice on the subway platform.

In the movie theatre. I think that's Prince in a pre-movie commercial. We saw Stardust, a great movie that has been horribly mis-marketed. This movie should appeal to any Harry Potter or Princess Bride fan, but you'd never know it from the trailers. The round up of British character actors that filled out the cast were amazing, including Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley from the potter films) and Ricky Gervais (from the British version of The Office). See it if you haven't it is doing poorly at the box office, but it should be doing better. The worst performance in the movie... Robert Deniro. Closely followed by Claire Daines' eyebrows, which were only present for half the movie.

This month's ubiquitous subway shot, on the way home from the movie.

Home again for a few hours work before dinner.

My friend Jim invited us over to see his new apartment, which is just a few blocks from mine but a world away. We stopped by a local taco place for dinner...

And then went to his roof to eat. The building apparently was purchased by a group of artists in the 80's when it was nothing more than a stripped out crack den. They've done an amazing renovation that features lots of exposed brick work accented by silver steel diamond plate around all the doors, stairways and and hallway areas. There is also a great roof deck with several separate seating areas and lots of sculpture and installation art.

Jim and Wendy enjoy tacos on the roof.

After dinner KF and I went back to his place. This cute doggy was out front.

A little pre-bed snack before lights out! Hope you had a great 12th.
