Strange experience on returning

I just returned from the post office with the mail that built up (in four days? i know!) while we were gone, and there were 3 netfilx dvds in there… A few seconds after I did the following, I realized how 21st century I have become. So: stack of netflix envelopes right there in front of me, but (in what seemed to be an instinctual move) I accessed information on a server hundreds of miles away to determine their contents rather than opening them myself.  Heh.

The aforementioned trip to NYC was supergreat. Pictures @ flickr; executive summary below:

Highlights:

  • Seeing a huge crew of fools: Dan, Smooth Dan, Chris, Tess, Bartow, Ryan (!), Kevin, Daniel, Carrie, Jon, Tally, Alex, Nora, Hanney.
  • Rocking the tourist style w/ Ryan on the Empire State Building
  • Eating at favorite joints: Grimaldi’s, Go, Cucina de Pesce, Chip Shop
  • Good meals at places new to us: Loreley, Press 195, Gravy, Pink Pony
  • Inside look at the casket factory near Dan’s place on Union Street
  • Spending more time in the Lower East Side than ever before
  • Kevin playing at Tonic w/ a full band
  • Walking from Dan’s to Tally & Alex’s
  • The weather
  • Seeing an apparently-F’d-up Sam Rockwell eating a slice of pizza on Ave A
  • Late night patties

Lowlights:

  • Missing all the out of town friends: Rachel, Real Bobby, Jennifer
  • Missing other folks that were around: Chris, Daniel, Katherine & Erich, Chris infobong
  • International Bar seems to be closed
  • Spending more time in the Lower East Side than ever before
  • Unsuccessfully trying to sleep during Broken Flowers @ BAM
  • Never finding any cold Manhattan Special for sale
  • Actually seeing some Real World Austin episodes
  • ATM fees

Ok, back to work.
