Beav...why would someone brag about living in NYC most of their lives but never going to the Statue of Liberty? I mean, I can see taking things like the ESB for granted and never going....but, how do you live right near something like that and never go, then sort of boast about it? Eh.

ETA - RB, hello...and, you've never been to a U2 show before?

San Jose, I was with a friend, we were in crappy seats. Chicago, met up with U2girlcj and we were by the sound board. 9/20 was a cool show, and I had a great time in Chicago.

ETA - I got my San Jose ticket from an interlander. My friend already had 1 ticket, I just went and sat with her 1/2 way through the show...but as I sit here and think about things....the interlander who sold me the ticket...I do not recall her name...but I fucking swear I remember her mentioning that she was meeting up with Reggie before the show, in the Hotel I stayed in. Wow, I wonder if I am recalling this correctly.
Really? That'd be too weird, small world, eh?

I want to do at least one touristy thing in NYC. I've been three times but obviously haven't seen nearly enough.

RB - hope you make it to a show next tour.

Thanks PopAngel

The more I think about it, the more I'm sure that's what she said....i'm too lazy to look at my old posts and find out if I'm right. Reggie can confirm, perhaps, another time.

RB, that is sad, but, hopefully, the operative word was "yet". Think I saw them 11 or 12 times this past tour. And, apparently, every show I attended had interlanders I'd later run into in this thread.

NSW - I dunno. Was someone bragging? I finally went about 4 or 5 years ago. I'd never been. I was at the ESB once when I was little. I actually got engaged in the restaurant that was in the Tiwn Towers. That's probably the extent of my touristy NYC, aside from museums, but they don't count. And yeah, the Statue of Liberty is more than a tourist spot, it's a little peice of history, and the museum there is cool.

I asked because someone in the St. Patty's thread mentioned it, and it read, to me, like she was almost boasting about it, like, she's lived there all her life and never went, and neither should anyone else. Maybe I read the context of it wrong....thought maybe you saw it and had an opinion on it.

Museums do not count as touristy things, agreed. Museums and restaruants are still my favorite things about home.

That is cool, Beav. Kids, I'm off to go watch some Tivo stuff....have a good night and sleep well and I'll type to you tomorrow. Beav, if you want me to call this freal coworker of yours, let me know, I'm still down, and am down to conference someone in if they want a piece of this.

I'm off for a bit, too. Got some stuff to do before bed, but will probably be back for another hit of the crack before I crash for the evening.

Good. They keeping you busy? You going to kill them in the face soon?

I have taken to using "kill them in the face" in real life situations now. I used it in an email today.
