keepin ya updated on my journey and daily exeriences on the east coast
last night i boarded a plane to jfk
with screaming children in my ear and a smelly smelly teenage boy on my left we were off
during the 4.5 hour flight i was served, drum roll please....FREE salted peanuts
(not so good for blood sugar or water retention)
since i could't sleep because of the operatic child behind me
i decided to dig into my unnecessarily heavy carry on and attempt to get some work done
about and hour into it i started to feel my butt fall asleep which was prefered to the
extreme painful & very consistent pain in my right hamstring that was to follow
only 3 more hours to go!
during the flight i became the translator between the Japanese boy & "flight attendant"
thankfully i got a kick out of her frustration (mean i know)
of not understanding the fact that he DIDNT SPEAK ENGLISH
through all of that i got all the work done that i had brought with me!
that NEVER happens
anyway i made it.....and eventually unfolded myself, popped my hips and high fived the smelly japanese boy
I HAVE ARRIVED
found my bags rather quickly (also never happens) and made my way to ground transportation
a lovely gentle man names dmitri brown, of d.brownlimousines presented himself
$60 plus toll and tip to union square SOLD
with my bag in tow we exited the airport
wind blowing and a chill in the air i was ready,
ready for anything
(brass knuckles in hand)
the precoursor to the car was
"i just dropped off a large family upstairs,
so i have the limo tonight"
(also never happens...upgrade?)
dont know if he meant numerous people or never mind
"i'm not gonna argue with that!?"
THEN we rounded the corner
not ONLY was it a limo
but a WHITE STRETCH LIMO
i think i peed a little
chuckling away i apologized and explained
i am a avid blogger and NEED to document this
he offered to take a picture of me in front of the "situation at hand"
......and i told him i just wasnt that kinda girl.
while my ghetto iphone was cutting in and out i came to the conclusion that i would stop by Comix to see an old friend, WHILE waiting for Ryan, BEFORE we head out for a drink.....
i yelled the address to the front of the limo, and he responded on the loud speaker
so apparently he had been listening to my phone convos
and i just yelled in his ear
ry strolls in after the bar closes
we have an after hours drink
& we are ready to roll
EARLY NIGHT PLEASE
WE BOTH HAVE TO BE UP IN THE MORNING
(its already after 12)
Karibi, my bud and Comix GM
brings us to RDV around the corner
a party in the meat packing district
good scene, great music, fun crowd...we felt right at home
only ONE drunken girl dancing/swaying sans shoes
He introduces us to Silent Dan
took some pics, drank some tequila
called it a night around 2am
AS WE SHARED A CAB OVER THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE
I NOTICED AN ADVERT FOR SKIN FRUIT
WHAT EXACTLY DOES SKIN FRUIT ENTAIL......
SOMEONE SHOULD TELL THEM THEY SPELLED IT WRONG
AS IT TURNS OUT IT IS A NEW EXHIBIT
