I'm baaaaack! Sorry about my lack of posting. I started this blog with hopes and dreams of becoming a real writer, however that has been looking somewhat bleak. It is just so much easier to keep up with posting on my son's website, Catcher Crazy Face. I love doing his blog, it's just that I need my own outlet. Moving back to New York really took it's toll on me and the best thing for me to do is let it all out. As of today I am doing well. Jonathon had the day off yesterday and his mom was in town so we decided to show her the great spoils of Coney Island. We packed up Catcher and headed off on the BQE in search of the Cyclone, Tottono's Pizza, Nathan's Hot Dogs, & the super dirty ocean. First we went for pizza at a place that the great Mario Batali recommended to my husband. It was good, definately in my top 5, however didn't even come close to Franny's(the best pizza in America). After the pizza we headed on to the beach. I am pretty sure Jon's mom was freaked out. Coming from the midwest, no matter how urban & cosmopolitan you think you may be, Coney Island can be inetense. The poverty and the ridiculous amount of pregnant teens can really knock a person on their ass. Aside from that the day kept on at a pretty good pace. We went to the beach, Catcher played in the sand while I hovered over trying to pick up glass before he could grab it. We took him in the ocean very briefly, because the massive amount of oil in the water really made me fell dirty. Coney Island beach is crazy, as we were leaving catcher and I went into the women's bathroom and the attendant was smoking a cigarette. I couldn't even believe it, I mean New York is such an anti-smoking state, how the hell is the Parks & Recreation worker going be smoking a fag inside a women's restroom filled to the brim with little kids. Amazing. I think after that uber white trash experience, the fam was ready to head home, but not without riding the Cyclone...
