If You're Patient, We Could All Get Out Of Here

Yeah. I've been slacking again. It happens.

I'm totally exhausted! Someone remind me again that I shouldn't go out and drink after midnight on a weekday! But besides that, falling into a nice relaxed little groove. I'm amusing myself with my knack for finding all the dudes seperated at birth from each other. Apparently this summer if you're wiry, tattooed, and prone to manic bursts of conversation, yes. I'm experimenting with being laid-back near to the point of comatose (unless I'm playing air hockey or trivia), so the contrast is funny to me.

The most exciting part of my week so far was buying a $20 Dust Buster at National Wholesale Liquidators and getting the Slurpee I've been longing for at 7-11. Hani fed me bad info and said they only had two flavors, but there were so many to choose from! 7-11 is a novelty thing for me because I can think offhand of only two in the entire 5 boros when I was growing up, so not having to go to LI to get a Slurpee is pretty sweet. (Though I discovered last week that Target has an imitation Icee machine thingy, so even closer to home!) I was a grinning fool on the train ride home today and everyone else looked very jealous.

Special birthday shout going out to Abe. I'm involved in a collaborative blog thing (one of two, but the other is still in progress) here. The theme is Around The World In 80 Mins and I hope I don't get somewhere in the South Pacific, an area I don't have a quarter of a clue about. Should be an interesting mix in the end though.

Lol i can just picture you on the train with a slurpee and your 'la la la i've got a lovely bunch of coconuts' face on.

You bet your ass. If there was a way to slurp obnoxiously, I was doing it.
