These little town blues...

Ok... if you have done any reading here at all, you already know what this is about... I am headed HOME!!! In just a few days, I will be taking a trip back to the land of all things delicious. I plan to eat my weight in "NY-only" food: bagels, pizza, bread, hot dogs, cheeses, meats, pastries- the likes of which will not be found on this Left Coast.

So who has seen The Godfather? Remember when he says "... but one day, and that day may never come, I will ask you for a favor..."? Well that day has come. My brain has become more than a little foggy and I am a little concerned that I may forget something. Tell me what it is that I need while in town... I need YOU. I am sure that YOU will have the one thing... the thing I can't live without on this trip… the thing I absolutely need. And I am sure that will be the one thing just out of the grasp of my memory... so remind me... any and all help is appreciated. Tell me about it… and when I get back I promise to tell you all about it. You know my rules… I’ll keep writing as long as you keep reading.

So, somebody call the NYPD, the FDNY and probably Animal Control too... I'm heading home and it is going to be some time!! My Fair City may be the City that Never Sleeps, but when I'm done... she's gonna need a little nap! 'Cause Johnny Tomatoes says so!!

"Are melting away"
well i'll tell you what your right eventhough i never been to the left coast from what i hear from poeple that have been there. They say everything is okay but its nothing like what you can get in Aurthur Ave. in the bronx so when you come back home its going to be crazy. Sure your head may be a little foggy but once you see the city, instally the fog becomes memories of great moments you had before you left the city that never sleeps.
If we have to call the NYPD or the FDNY we'll just call the ones we now in now both but animal control your on your own for that one sorry.
So you'll probally firgure out who this is so here's a question you identified a movie by the beginning credits. If your so good try this, "Okay if your really us what number are we thinking of?"

I'm so happy for you. I'm actually going back home to Philly next week too. I'm so excited. I plan to do the same as you and eat my way through the entire city. The first thing I'm going for is a cannoli and then a roast pork sandwich, and the list goes on and on....Enjoy and I can't wait to hear all about it!
