AAAARGH THE LEG CRAMPS OF FAIL. Last time I was in NY, after a day of walking around the city, I would invariably have excruciating cramps in my legs that kept me awake. Having just spent the day WALKING AROUND NEW YORK;Me:
HGJAYDGHASGFHFHAGF *WHINES* LEG CRAAAMPS. Idk if my legs are just fucked or if a lot of people have this problem.Liss:
Wellm mine are fine so I think your legs are fucked.Me:
BUT YOU GUYS. We are having so much fun! We drove down this morning and got into the city around 2.30pm. It felt like coming home, idek. I missed it so, so much. We just walked around in Times Sq and the general area and figured out how long it'll take tomorrow night to walk to the cinema for X-FILES TWO, BITCHES from oh oh, The Gershwin for WICKED, BITCHES. We're also hoping to see David Duchovny on his way in or out of David Letterman, but we dunno how that works, really :/
I somehow managed to spend like, $140? Including like, food and shit. We got pizza at Famiglia, which I missed so much you don't even know. But much of my money was spent in Virgin, which is like... my Utopia. I got the deluxe edition of @#%&*! Smilers
, which is HONEST TO GOD the most beautiful CD I have ever, ever seen, Far From Heaven
, The Shipping News
and a pink Beatles t-shirt that says "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds". I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. IL ALL THEIR STONES AND BEATLES SHIT. And I saw a poster for The Vertical Hour
in a broadway souvenier store and I want it so fucking bad.
I ALSO FORGOT ABOUT ALL THE WEIRD SHIT YOU GET IN TIMES SQUARE FOR PROMOTION AND STUFF. Like a guy dressed as Frankenstein walked by us and like, growled and Liss saw a guy with a brain in a jar, both for Young Frankenstein
- which I would looove to see. BUT BEST OF ALL, outside Virgin there were two groups of people with buttons and flyers - one campaigning for Vampire rights, and one that was anti-vampire. IT WAS SO COOL. THEY GAVE US THE BUTTONS AND STUFF AND TOOK OUR PICTURES, HAD US SIGN PETITIONS AND WERE YELLING AT EACH OTHER AND WE WERE DYING OF LOL. When we had our photo taken for Vampire rights, the other group yelled "YOU MAY AS WELL BE HOLDING YOUR OWN BLOOD!!"
Then later, Matt pointed out that it was probably a viral campaign - and it clicked. True Blood
- Alan Ball's new HBO drama about Vampires in the south. Vampires have gone public and integrated themselves into society after the Japanese invented synthetic blood, known in the show as "Tru Blood". Since he wrote American Beauty
- easily one of my top 20 films, and created Six Feet Under
- the most impressive show I have ever watched, thanks... I WAS PSYCHED FOR THIS SHOW. And having seen and LOVED the leaked pilot, I pretty much died when I checked the websites on our buttons and found out I was right.Fellowship of the SunAmerican Vampire League
WE ALSO WENT IN THE GIANT TOYS 'R' US AND SAW THE BARBIE THAT LISA WAS AT THE LAUNCH FOR. IT IS FUCKING BEAUTIFUL. Liss & I made the girl get us one out to look at and we took pictures with it but it's like $80. We both totally want one of those suckers though. It is stunning.
So once we were done shopping and finding our way to the cinema, Hell & I got Starbucks and we all went and sat in a little park in front of Macy's until the sun went down so we could see the city all lit up. We then walked back through Times Sq and Liss & I took a bunch of photos.
We got kinda wet on our way back to the hotel, too, which was actually very awesome and welcomed, considering the humidity. But there was thunder and lightening and it was kind of amazing. So Liss opened the blinds so we could watch it. The sky was kind of orange, and it was gorgeous ♥
WE HAVE SOOOO MANY PICS AND VIDEOS FOR YOU, YOU HAVE NO IDEA. IDK WHEN WE'LL GET THEM ALL UP, THOUGH. But there will be spam in the near future. Right now Hell, Liss and I are procrastinating sleep and discussing orgies with tenacious_err
on msn. FUN TIEMS. Liss and Hell are kinda sick, so they can barely talk and when they laugh they wheeze and choke and cough. It is so sexy you guys, you have no idea. I fear their deaths are impending. More importantly, I fear I am catching the cough. YAY MORE SEXAY WHEEZING AND SUCH!!1! They are excited. Fuckers.
