How last night’s last-minute trip to Manhattan went.
Decided to go in the first place to try and meet Olivia Harrison
First bus showed up an hour late and completely screwed me over
Wound up in Manhattan 30 minutes after Olivia left Barnes and Noble :(
Decided, “Fuck it. I’m in New York.”
Proceeded to hit up Applebees (had a gift card!), a few bars, and Dave & Busters. 1st Place High Score on The House of the Dead 4 belongs to me (JLT)
Accepted that I lost track of time, throw sleep and caution to the wind!
More restaurants, and the distribution of Winter Day’s debut album!
Learn that the next bus to WPU leaves at 9AM….it’s only 3AM.
Aimlessly wander around the streets and the subway
Realize that my money has “mysteriously vanished”
Get conned out of $10 by some guy posing as a “city guide,” proceed to kick his ass when he tries to get more
More wandering…only four hours to go until that damn bus
Dangerously drifted to sleep in the middle of Port Authority with random chest pains
Arrived at WPU at 10AM, slept, woke up….and wrote this.
