On Saturday I went up to Manhattan I mean Brooklyn to hang out with illscientist and mordicai.  We had Ethiopian food, which Ill and I had never eaten before.  We all liked it lots.  Then we mosied over to Brooklyn and formed a band and recorded demos.  I'm not sure what my role in the band is, yet, but I will think of something.  If worst comes to worst I will play the banjo.  Because I've already got one.

You can see the Statue of Liberty from the roof of Dave's new building.  We went up there to smoke and to talk about doing drugs, and not doing drugs, with Ill's new roommates.  It was a night of Communal Drinking.  We shared a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc at the restaurant and then on the way to Ill's place bought a liter of Jim Beam and two liters of Pepsi and we almost polished everything off, which was pretty good, since we didn't get started on that until 10:30 pm.  This story is out of order, mostly.

Mordicai wandered home at around three, because he had to go to a wedding in New Jersey (he kept saying New Jersey as if it were the name of another country or possibly even another star system.  "Where is the wedding?"  "New Jersey.") the next morning.  Via bus.  Dave and I woke up and had Dunkin Donuts for breakfast and then wandered around Manhattan on subway trains that did not run as they should.  He was late.  I hope that he was not fired.

But the best event of the whole trip took place while I was walking from the subway to Penn Station.  I was waiting on a corner for the light to change, and so were a lot a lot of other people.  And then the light changed and the walk sign didn't come on but whatever and 20 - 30 people entered the roadway at once from both sides and then this minivan with Vermont plates made a right turn to go down the street, and instead of stopping for the pedestrians like a normal person this guy slowed a little bit, laaaaaaaiiid on the horn, and then just started to plow through!  He didn't hit anyone, but you KNOW he had to be going in a dangerously fast way, because pedestrians surely do not get out of the way of slow moving vehicles.  Everyone in the street looked at him like he was fucking crazy, and from watching TV and movies you should know that it takes something pretty crazy to shock New Yorkers.  The thing that made it the best was that there were two cops standing RIGHT THERE at the intersection, and a large black female cop immediately told the Vermont guy to pull over, and she gave him a talking-to.  Man, Vermont drivers!

Wait, weren't you in Boston all weekend?

But Erin, I totally did think of getting in touch! And I looked around whenever we were in the subway thinking "I wonder if I will run into Erin Meister." And there was a girl on the train in a white button-down and glasses and a boy's haircut who reminded me of you.

But I haven't seen my friend Dave in months nor Mordicai either and so I didn't think this would be a good meeting-for-the-first-time. But yes, I definitely want to meet you in Brookly sometime! For serious! Next time.

OK cool! And ha, you're right. I totally forgot I was in Boston. I'm a loser!

Anyway! My best friend was regaling me last night with tales of her recent trip to the Star Trek wing of a Las Vegas Hilton and I totally thought of you! HOW FUCKING COOL IS THAT?! There are charactor actors from all the different ST shows just walking around! AND a full re-creation of Quark's bar!

You probably know about all this, but I sure as hell didn't, and man, I want to go!

Man, yesterday they were talking on the radio about the terrorist alert thing in Las Vegas, and my mind wandered and I thought about what it will be like when I eventually go to Quark's bar and have a drink with dry ice in it.

We had Ethiopian food, which Ill and I had never eaten before

What...a big plate of NOTHING?

But seriously I just finally had Ethiopian a while back and it was good. Very veggie-ish....
