So I was reading through my last journal post, when I realized: I forgot to mention what possibly could've been the most important thing!

Okay, so graduating high school and starting college was the most important thing. But-but... the second most important thing!

I can't believe I didn't once mention the senior class trip to New York City. *headdesk*

Brief Summary:
NYC. Awesome place.
...if you have cash. <.<;

I suppose what with it being so long ago (March, I think?), I don't really have much to say about it anymore.

Um... we managed to piss off the locals within the first few hours of our arrival. (b^o^)b
A classmate of mine caught a pigeon. Then he caught hell. Of course, one cannot carry both a pigeon and hell simultaneously, so the pigeon was promptly released. A few moments later another pigeon had been retrieved. For some reason or another, the lady that'd yelled at him before got us together for a group photo, got her snapshot, flipped us the bird, and left.

New Yorkers sure are strange. And amusing.

And this was all in front of the Metropolitan Art & History Museum. Needless to say, it was a very... cultured experience.

Oh~ and I got to go to Pokemon Center NY Nintendo World~ I'd been looking forward to it since I'd heard our class trip would be to New York. I forced my BFF to go with me because she's awesome like that. And it's only like, a block away from NBC, which was surprisingly convenient. o.o;

We saw Mary Poppins on Broadway. I don't know why everyone was so bummed about seeing it. I thought it was pretty awesome. [/dork]
Also, I have to say, their rendition of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (...sp? ._.;) was superior to that of the movie.
And the "I'M PRAC-TI-CAL-LY PERFECT" song made me laugh. :3

I learned that Times Square is not actually a square.
That's just what they want you to think.
In fact, I'd say it's quite distinctly shaped like a triangle. That's right. A triangle.

I was severely disappointed that we only got to spend like, half an hour in Chinatown. I'm definitely planning to go back someday, if only to eat Chinese food in Chinatown. (Well, hopefully I'll do more than that, but you get it. ...right? ._.;)

Hm~ also saw Liberty Island and its statue and Ellis Island and its... building. Don't eat at Liberty Island. Trust me. Don't do it.
[Note to self: Tell Alfred that I'm not impressed with his 8-dollar hamburgers.]


And while I'm at it~

Yay~ New LJ friends~ ♥ ♥ ♥


I promise to write more than I have in the past year. I do, I do~

And... um... just because, I feel like including this in this post so I don't end up with like, ten different posts.
[/suddenly has a million things to write about]

So. Apples to Apples.
[/even if they are a million incredibly trivial things]

This game is how I spent my entire New Year's Eve.
And it's quite possibly the most humorous game ever.

Quick explanation for those who don't know: There's adjective cards and thing cards. Each round has one adjective cards and you play a thing card. One player judges all the thing cards. The person with the winning card gets that adjective card and whoever reaches the set amount of adjective cards first wins (...or you can just keep playing for as long as you feel like).

Anyway, I bring this up because we were ranking the best "thing" cards.

Our top 10 list looks like this:
10. My Love Life
9. Leaf Blowers
8. Steak and Potatoes
7. Saddam Hussein
6. Rolling a Car
5. Charging Rhinos
4. Angry Hornets
3. Driving Off a Cliff
2. Men
1. Baked Potatoes

Why? Well, you pull out a list of adjectives and try applying them to these things. You'll get a good laugh.
By the way, Baked Potatoes is pretty much an invincible card due to its humor value. Trust me on this.

Hm~ That's all for now~
We're supposed to get a pretty significant snow storm around here soon, so I'll probably have nothing better to do than post another one of these things over the next few... uh... days? Hours? I dunno. Well, whatever~ :D

I don't think I'd ever survive in NYC....let alone a simple trip there. :'D But it still sounds like an awesome place to go to.

Apples to Apples is like the best game EVAH!

To be honest, I was really worried about going there in the first place.
...It didn't help that one of my classmates kept saying he was going to announce that he was "packing heat" once we got there either. It wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be though. :D

And yes, yes it is~!! 8D

This just reminds me of all the places I still need to go to do. I swear, when I become a rich person with a whole ton of cash, I'm going to visit all of these places I've heard so much about.

New York City sounds like a fun (if hectic) place to visit. And I'm totally envious that you got to see Mary Poppins, since the movie is a personal favorite of mine. There's a lot of depth and beauty in Mary Poppins that I think most people don't seem to get when they watch it.

I know~ Tis my dream to travel the world someday. X3
...When I can afford it. ;-;

NYC is pretty fun, but it involves quite a bit of shopping, and everything's kind of expensive. Well, there's bootlegs in Chinatown, but... o.x

To be honest, as much as I used to love the movie, the Broadway performance of Mary Poppins really puts the film to shame. It was really... just... all so beautiful. *o*
