ZOMG Chuck!! - US Trip Part 3

Spent yesterday in New York, started the day off with a bit of embarrassment as apparently my sleep-foghorn may have caused some awakedness in my roommates.  Embarrassment and Guilt imo.

Once we got to New York though fun started.  First off we went on a Food Tour of Greenwich Village and I believe the official response to that is...


Jeez you guys are so lucky to have all that around in NYC and how come the average New Yorker doesn't weight 44 stone? (Look it up imo, I'm trying to confuse as many Americans with British metrics as possible...see later footnote)

However then we all met up with Chuck who was just several gallons worth of awesome and I just wish we'd have had longer to have stayed.  So much fun, and really good food...I so have to start hitting the gym more :(

Anyway we got back at about 11pm to the Borg and Pygmyhero decided that he wanted to play another session (Machine imo) whereas I was about ready to collapse but tried to make sure I stayed up long enough to deactivate the foghorn.  Anyway Mike came in a few hours later and as far as I know he's still asleep.  THink it's only fiar to leave him for a bit :)

Random Footnote Story: My "official" e-mail address starts with a "z".  People from the UK pronounce this as "zed".  Not "zee".  Unfortunately the girl at the Borgata had not been trained in UK/US translation.  Fortunately I had Lysistrata with me who, after bursting into laughter for 10-15 seconds, was kind enough to act as a translator for me...did I mention embarrassment yet?  On the plus side Lysistrata's English accent is better than mine.

We'll be leaving AC later today.  I haven't decided whether I'm going to put in a last session or not yet.  I'm feeling pretty good but may just chill, we've been very active the last few days.  We'll see.

Catch y'all later

Boomer, I distinctly remember you telling me a few weeks ago that you were "excited....yet fearful" about coming to the US b/c "I'm scared I'll put on 30lbs!" How's that working out for ya? Lol. Sounds like you're having a great trip! Wish I could've made it up there to hang out.
