    I recommend you go to the Ellis and Liberty Island at 11:15 tomorrow. I heard some pretty cool guys are planning to hang around that spot at that time!

    Yeah, I'm back!
    Never been to NY before.. frankly never wanted to go.
    Now that I've been, I wanna go back.
    I like it there, I didn't see nearly enough of it. It was megafun just walkin' around, always something neat to look at. People, places, things.. NY has them.
    Of course the main idea was not to be in New York, but to be with fellow tempers I've always wanted to meet.
    That I did.
    It was great meeting Costy and Shaun, we hung out the first day and figured out the subways and trains and stuff.
    Then VVoltz and SpikeyNDS and M|kk| showed up.
    We all had a blast walkin' around, ridin' the subway, just hangin' out.
    I also got some great pics.. will post some soon.

    When I do go back, maybe I can meet some more tempers.. some natives.. that'd be cool, but still, wandering around aimlessly was really fun.

    Oh, and I broke it... sorry.. maybe the next mayor can fix it. Until then, enjoy The Big Rutabaga!

    Oh, and the Pope TOTALLY AVOIDED ME! Jeez! Thanks a LOT Pope.. see if I vote for YOU next time around. [​IMG]

    Nice, nice, nice. Nice to see Tempers meeting up and having fun. I'd want to go next time this happens. Hopefully by then, the money tree I've planted starts growing and bearing fruit.
    While I'd like to visit NY, I hope it isn't there next time around too since I'm a night person.

    Hehe, Costello looks exactly like your stereotypical (correct use of word?) tourist!

    Nice shirt, mthr [​IMG]

    Though, I can't exactly tell what kind of look shaun is going for [​IMG]

    Hope you guys stay safe in that big ol' city [​IMG]

    Make sure to post more pictures, dudes.
