fizzle and food

POST #    377

last night, i trekked up to central park for the much hyped light cycle display, i was quite disappointed. maybe it was the fact that i missed some of it, maybe it was the rain, or maybe it was the short 5 minute duration of the event, but i would say that the whole thing fizzled in the drizzle. it was a good idea, but i in new york, if you've seen the 4th of july fireworks, other fireworks displays just seem rather blah. the times reported that there were some residents around the park that didn't know it was going on, so they called the cops. i guess in hindsight it sounded like artillery fire and machine gun fire, but did they really think that we were under attack? people, it's called watching the news or reading the newspaper. try stepping foot outside your apartment for once.

halley also went to watch the fireworks display, feel free to read his deafening experience.

i stood in the rain for this?

afterwards, johnny, sas, and i made a trip to brother jimmy's for some all you can eat/drink action and monday night football (which we won't talk about). the all you can eat wings and rib tips aren't that great, but for $12.95, who cares. plus there is all you can drink beer. i didn't quite match my 3.5 plates performance from the last time i went, but i did have 3 plates. the 3 of us also had 6 pitchers of beer to wash down all the meat. as if that wasn't enough, the waitresses brought out some concoction of alcohol that was in a fishbowl. that was the last thing i needed. at this point sas had already left, so johnny and i had to try to finish this ourselves. it was just bad news. i think right after my first sip, i started to get drunk. if it wasn't for that drink at the end, i would have been in decent shape, but it totally pushed me over the edge.

johnny doing what he does best. sucking. well, attempting to make a dent in the drink. no such luck.
