The lab seems to have lost a roll of mine, I think I'll check with them tomorrow for more of my photos.

Looks like you had fun. Sorry I couldn't be there, it would've been fun meeting my erstwhile sparring partner matteo, who if the picture is any indication, looks a bit like a younger version of my grand uncle Renzo, sans mustache.

oops, i speeled his name wrong. Sorry Matteo!

It's great to be able to put faces with names. Since it's unlikely that there will be a meet up in my area here's mine.

Ooh, nice informed "paparazzi" reference, Smart Dalek. (Oh, also with the new Dr. Who, I understand your name.)

Yea, it's really hard to avoid. Makes it look like we were all players in some film noir.

splatta, those are noir-riffic! And I must say that our New York Men of MeFi look pretty dashing in several of smart dalek's and naxos' pics as well. I can only assume that matteo's promised t-shirt shoutout is on your missing roll of film, however...?

Carbolic: Wow. I your picture was stunning. I'm embarassed now that I sent you such an unattractive picture of myself. Attached please find a better one. (NSFW)

Only if you'll take me to France with you.

Actually, I recently saw a real picture of you, and you are way cute.

Dame: Exactly. No original thought here.
Amberglow: Would Santa Fe be okay instead

Excellent post, dame.

Also, please note that the third picture from the left looks just like naxosaxur.

Finalmente! Though my previous theory is completely blown now, does anyone else detect a passing resemblance to Johnny Cash? Or do I just need new contact lenses?

non suppongo che scenderai il 12 per vedere Inter spaccare il culo di Totti e co.l'andata della Coppa Italia, eh?

scody, it's right here.

Splatta, she means the shoutout matteo promised to do in retaliation.
posted by Plutor at 5:09 AM on June 2, 2005

I see what you mean romakimmy, but matteo reminds me more of Armand Assante. What do you think?
posted by Tarrama at 6:13 AM on June 2, 2005

I think a little like Orlando Bloom.

No, it's Uncle Renzo. That's why we argue so much. It's all in la famiglia.

you so should have come, jon

I finally looked at the pics. No one missed me. I'm holding my breath forever till I die. Then you'll all be sorry.

If I had passed on the Grandparents' anniversary, I would've been sentenced to death by guilt-trip. Also, there's nothing like 6 hours in a car with your parents to remind you of why you left home.
posted by jonmc at 8:37 AM on June 2, 2005

Ack! I can't believe I missed this! I was in Manhattan for a few days and stopped checking Meta because of busy-ness and lack of connections ...
