No... not really. I know I'm still in manhattan.


I left the china town to go off in search of a starbucks to caffeurinate .. The closest starbucks I was able to find was a very long ways from china town...


Now. what to do. what to do... This is such a huge place, I'm always overwhelmed by everything whenever I pass thru.. And the wmnz. there's so many! -?



okay... time to get off the internet and get lost some more. People, get yourself 'away' from the internet - and go 'out' .. out-out-out... srsly, do it.

You see botto, I have a 'gift' .. I happen to be god's gift to barista chics. Yesterday I got hooked up with a free cup of coffee - and a ''promotional'' pound of coffee. But the truth is there was no promotion, it was more of a 'friendship offering' ... I have taken time to cultivate a special relationship with many of my baristas, and it has paid off. It's all about the thrill of the hook-up ... it doesn't happen every single time - but when it does... and she knows just how you like it, it makes you feel pretty.. oh so pretty.

tho, starbucks > McDonalds, imo..



I'm boycotting them becz of the Clinton connection, and obviously because thinking about their menu makes me gag.. tho there is the exception of their soft-serve with fudge from their dollar menu..


** and the chicken fajita - that AFAIK they stop selling .. I used to love those, it was basically the only edible item they offered.. wtf were they thinking with that?

I'm on the china town bus - cruisen on the information super-highway... thanks to state-of-the-art 3G technology - which is on permanent loan from the folks at AT&T wireless.. (with the full consent/permission of a generous provider). But fwiw - I assure you it's all 'very' legal.. for now.


So... I'm trying to decide whether to get off in Virginia to visit friends and family... or take this thing all the way down to atlantic city to see if I can hang out with this girl I met from school. Neither her nor my folks know I headed down south yet... I dunno. Has anybody been to atlantic city?

Why would you go to Manhattan if there's no bicycle race? I don't get it.

because... I had to dispose some fluids.. that's how/why the thread got started in the first place. I needed to find someplace to seek relief.. and I found it, and I posted about it - and then continued on my marry way... I just woke up, we're now in baltimore. Anybody been to Atlanta ga? ... I think the bus is going to atlanta, (I thought it was atlantic city - but that's back in NJ). Anyone lives there, can spare a couch? -?

I'm serious... We can buy some pints, invite some girls over - and throw a crazy-foo party that will become the stuff of legend.

Yeah... there's like five or six different ones. I'm not even sure which one this is, I boarded it about a city block from where I wrote the OP (well outside of chinatown) ... it just happened to make a stop to board a crowd of people who were waiting for it when I happened by - and the guy said it was headed down to atlanta. right place - right time.

Barnes & Noble. It's where Manhattan stops when it's gotta go.
