As I sit and ponder about the past I smile as I remember these 5 friends and the good times we had together.
Crystal Pherson, Shawn Vance, Nanci Pietras, Jason Kane and Niki Virga.
I miss Crystal. It was a Sunday night, we were hosting a beer pong tournament at the house and it was a little disappointing because I ended up out of the match early. However, it worked out for the best as I went outside and that’s when I met Crystal for the first time, sitting somewhere around the hammock feeling really really good. I miss all the times we spent under the influence, in a world I haven’t been back to very often. I miss the day at MGM pool and the night at Diablos. I miss looking into her eyes and knowing we both felt the same feelings and thought the same thoughts. We had many great times together and I wish that she could be here now to experience the new world I am in. I just don’t ever want to repeat the “naked Jonas in my tub” night ever again :/
I haven’t seen Shawn in forever, it was April 2010 in San Diego, California at a Padres games when the Braves were in town. Atlanta won, we had some beers and I think I took down like 7 hot dogs in the all you can eat stands. It was a good day. I miss all of the adventures we had throughout Sweden, Prague, South Africa and Las Vegas. We put back a lot of beers together and I contribute 100% of my alcoholism to him alone. Now he is living in Stockholm with his beautiful wife and baby girl and I hope them the best and hope that I able to afford to make it out to Sweden to visit within the next month.
I remember the night we first met, Ryan and I were taking advantage of free drinks at the club before heading out to another location to meet some friends… we ended up staying there a little longer than expected. I was a little closed off at first, but your friendly and real personality had me opening up to you fairly quickly. Haha, I remember you signed into my facebook on my HTC hero phone and for some reason it wouldn’t let you sign out! It took forever to figure out what was wrong, lol. It was worth it though, however, I wish we could of spent more time together taking pictures of you with my hat and funny wig :p I wish you the best in Philly and hope we will run into each other again during our travels.
We met at one of my first house parties at the Rockin Seville House around the beginning of 2009. It was unfortunate that we were never able to set up a day for his band to play at any of our parties. We did have some good times, drank a lot of beer and it would of been great if we were able to have one last party on the strip with some of those green pills before I left
It seems that all the times we spent together were pretty spontaneous, from a random drink at Ellis Island, a mid day Yankees game at Barley’s Brewery and Casino, Foundation room, Cadillac Ranch, to Stoneys with a guy who ended up being the 2009 World Series of Poker winner. I do remember the first night we met, it was at Blue Martini, you were wearing a black top with blue shorts, actually, haha, I have no idea what you were wearing, that would be creepy, but I do remember you were sitting down at a table and that encounter was brief. I hope everything is well with you and I’m looking forward to a Yankees vs Braves World Series this year!
