New York Minute Update

In lieu of an awesome show which would have allowed me to kick people in the face and some last-week-of-ultimate-before-our-tournment-this-weekend-games, here's some highlights of my stay here in NYC.
  • Went to Brooklyn for the first time. I know it's not a big deal, but for some reason I thought it was since I've never been there.
  • Went to a place call Barcade. It had one of the better beer selections I've ever seen and the place had wall to wall 80s' video games for a quarter. Sweetness.
  • Ghost n' Goblins, Spy hunter, and Zaxxon are all still impossible games. Don't waste your money.
  • Rampage and Gauntlet are good ideas for about 3 min. Then it's painfully boring.
  • I'm not as good at Dig Dug as I've previously claimed. Someone at barcade had over 2 million points.
  • I played Qbert all night so I can take out Furdell next time we meet.
  • Having a great room in the middle of Times Square is still boring if you don't have anyone to go out with.
  • You can't beat meat on a stick
  • I have mastered the NY subway system. Owned.
  • I had one of the better burgers ever. It was simple and plain delicious.
  • I don't want to be an adult. I've seen what it's done to my friends and I don't like it.
  • I just had a very delicious cupcake. I don't usually like sweets that much but I do like cupcakes. For some reason, cupcakes conjures an image of a cute girl with pig tails. Don't know how to explain that, but I like cupcakes.
  • I hope Pup did not destroy the house while I've been gone. I'm hoping to get home early with an earlier flight. That way I'll catch him cleaning the place after the wild party he's probably having right now.

So where did you go for the burger? BTW, hanging out with your friends has to be much cooler than going to a stupid concert ;-)

Pup said...

It's a place right by S and S's house. Did they take you?

It would've been better if I had a chance to kick your ass around.

BTW, I went to a Thai place that was much better than the place that we went (reason I went to Brooklyn).

What has adulthood done to us? Screw you, stuffed-animal boy.

KO said...

You need to get to Queens...there are suppose to be amazing Taiwanese restaurants there!

We always end up not going to the burger place by S&S's apartment for some reason. I will make it a special trip to go and try it.

Seriously, if I were one of your friends you just saw, I'd kick your ass for that comment.

God, there's a joke somewhere in there about being able to beat meat on a stick...I just can't quite pull it, get my arms around it...damnit, I mean, can't grasp it...fuck it.

The comment about being adult wasn't necessarily about the people that I saw this week.

Actually, it's more about people I know that doesn't read this blog.
