Last Day in NYC

Quick update on recent days:

* The leaving party was a tremendous success. The venue was perfect (nice one, Jason) and everybody had a rockin' time. My parents showed up and surprised us all. I did not think they would make the journey from farthest Flushing to darkest Manhattan. Billy T did his once annual 'drink up and puke down' routine. I find that entire ceremony very refreshing for some reason.

* I have seen my (genetic) family for the last time for more than a year. That is tough.

* Today is our last day in the USA. I plan to spend it making mental notes about how people live their lives so I'll be able to make intelligent comparisons in the future. I may even shoot some video - something I've been a bit shy of for fear of getting labelled a "tourist" or even worse - a "documentarian".

* Karaoke jammy jam last night. Good.

Dude, I got way wasted at the Karaoke place but was still a lot of fun--Sorry and thanks Lehra for carrying me home and sorry and thanks New York City for having to see my big old butt and undies hanging out of my unreasonably short skirt. Someone's got to make a fool out of themselves and it might as well be me--I'm pretty good at it, I've had the practice.
miss you already

Aye. I think someone was definitely slipping alchohol into these drinks. First time I've woken up after a karaoke jam feeling like I'd just gone the distance with Jesse "the body" Ventura.

Great party though.

This is Allan btw...using my nefarious and uber-underground (that's right Kraut-o-philes, I'm over-underground) online alter-ego
