Another Day at the Top

Well, another day, another few thousand visitors. I can now not feel my legs below the knees. At this rate, by the end of the week i will be totally numb. This might be good.

Apparently they already had a proposal on the deck yesterday. going down on one knee, ring, the whole nine yards. it's just too cute.

By the way, i think you will all be interested to discover that there is a multimedia area on the 69th floor called the Target Room. yep. Aim right here.

Some more things i learned about America today:
  • Treating an american like an idiot is considered being helpful. When guests at the deck are directed around in loud, clear voices normally used on small children they do not find this patronising or insulting to their intelligence. they find it helpful. Good Morning Sir! Step Right This Way!! Pamela Your Lovely Host Will Press The Elevator Button For You Because You Are Too Stupid To Use a Lift!!! Enjoy Your View!!!!
  • Working two jobs is not unusual among the working class. i've met two people so far who work two jobs a day, six days a week. That seriously sucks.
  • Limousines are everywhere in NY. I saw more stretch limos just getting from the airport to the hotel than in the rest of my life up till now. I even saw one that had been converted into a family car. I shit you not. Mom, Dad and four kids.

I have saturday off so i'm going to do the tourist thing for a bit. I might take the camera to work tomorrow and see if i can't get some photos. A few personal ones, but maybe some nice ones for work. Right now, I'm propped up on the hotel bed, watching Speed with the laptop on it's eponymous perch, and life is not too bad. Not too bad at al.

Things to do in NY:
visit the museams.. dotn know if its the same now as it was then but you just pay a donation and you can spend hours there.
Dont by the hot dogs..they are _not_ just like in the movies.
Have hot beef on rye..that _is_ just like in the movies.
Take a walk through china town its very entertaining (if you like watching people live kinda thing)
Take a hop on hop off bus they normally have really good advice and take you to this pink lemonade stand just outside the getto
If you want to see aplay in NY and dont have the cash for a proper seat buy an ushers ticket, it kinda sucks that you have to work for the first half but you get a really cheap ticker, get to see the show, and after the interval you can pick a really good seat because the season ticket holders dont show up after interval.

if i rmember any other stuff i will let you know

hey tw, you remember that hot beef on rye we had? 'i want your meat'
no, schpat, i have not whacked anyone yet, i would prefer not to get arrested while here. I don't want to end up in some fuck-me-in-the-ass prison, or worse, get deported back home.

Hey deportation = free flight!

Also if it is really just like the movies they hardly ever catch the hit men.
