Dinner at the Neighbors

OMG. Once a week we have dinner at our neighbors. We look forward to Dinner at Our Neighbors. It’s possible that I am the wealthiest person on the planet. My neighborhood is Sublime. And the food is really f*&King good. ObLaDee… . (Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)

Heh.

Elaine Benes (THE J-MAN): Uncle Leo? –Common knowledge of Seinfeld Casey Neistat (Kat & Tony): Look back at your life. It’s always the hardest times that made you who you are.
