We then walked back to the hostel, grabbed a chinese, then later in the evening got a few... well... 24 bottles of alcohol from the liquour store and sat infront of the tv watching Independance Day, followed by Home Alone 2. Merry.
We are just hanging out today in the hostel, then catching a bus to Indianapolis this evening at 5pm (all nighter).
We also bought Obama shirts! Yeaaaaaaah!

Going to head into the city tomorrow to have a look around too.
Monday, 15 December 2008
So yeah, tonight we'll be in Washington DC with George Bush and same tomorrow night, then we will be driving accross to Indianapolis, where we seriously have no idea what we will do as we don't know anything about it! Can't wait!

Then we took the tube into town, had a walk around and went to Wall Street, then on to Brooklyn Bridge. Once we got there, there was a police guy standing there with his aviators on, so Add and George (our new english room mate) took a pic of him, he then came storming at us and grabbed Add's camera shouting at him to let go of it. He then shouted at us asking how to delete them.. followed by asking Add how old he was, asking 'do you wanna be 23??' once he deleted the pictures we asked him what was going on and he shouted in our faces if we would like it if someone came along and took photos of us while we were working. He was shouting everything at us and really wasn't happy. I'll tell you now i'll be glad to leave New York, it really does kinda suck in my opinion.
We leave tomorrow morning and getting the bus down to Washington D.C. where we will stay a night or 2.

We made our way to the ferry terminal, and saw there was a ferry to Staton island at 2:30, it came, we got on, sat down. We then were wondering what island the statue of liberty is actually on... then realised we were on the complete wrong boat. So we stood up and made a run to the back of the boat where they were just pulling the barrier accross, we called out and they opened it up so we could get off and told us to 'hurry the hell up!!'.
We then made our way to the correct ferry terminal and got a boat accross to liberty island and took some photos. Was good.

Probably the most pointless shower I have ever had. Funny stuff.
I'm now writing this in my pants stannding next to the airvent mounted on the window. Nice.
Don't feel tired at all so it's not so bad either, going to go watch some champions league today at lunch. Add's laptop isnt working properly so we're taking that back too. Brilliant.

It's pretty damn cool, yesterday we walked through central park, took way too many pictures of the squirrels. Wandered down to Times Square which was amazing too.
We were asleep by 8:30 last night due to the jet lag. Were up at 7am this morning so left he hostel to go for a walk again at 7:30. Took another stroll through central park, then down to the Rockerfella tower, took some good pics at the top of there.
Come back to the hostel now and just relaxing before we go into the city again to go up the tower again at night (night shots here I come!)

I have under 3 weeks until I go travelling for a year and it's coming round fast. So much to plan, so much to pack and sort out, which is the reason I haven't been on here.
But everything is going well, been messing about with my camera a bit, getting used to all the settings before I embark on my journey.
That's about all I have to say :-)

It was pretty cheap and I am selling my xbox 360 to help pay for it (in order to keep track on with world travelling in December (which is only 86 days away now)).
I am very very excited as never been to America before. I can't wait to have a chili dawg.
I been working alot, talking to Ashlee alot, aaaannnd thats about all really. Not alot exciting.
Ohhh yes, I went to London Zoo which was awesome. Giraffes are awesome. Going up to London again for Nina's birthday in a week or 2 to do some kareoke and visit some random Ice bar? No idea.
Oh and its harvest moon soon, so look out for it being all orange n sheet.
And finally, I discovered the magical world of 'In the night garden'. Its bloody brilliant! Its a tv program my niece watches, well, I say 'watch'... we sit her infront of the tv playing with her toys while we watch it. It has the Pontipine's, who are the most awesome family ever.
Here they are!
The pontipines are friends of mine,
Although they're only small,
Even when theres ten of them,
They're hardly there atall!

All is fine, went to London again with my Ghetto homies which was awesome once again, never fail to have a good time. South East rail suck, majorly. I think i'll walk next time I go up there.
Finally confirmed our flight out of the country in December, the 8th to be precise, at 8:20am. Nice early start. Boomshakalaka.
Been out taking some pictures of the moon aswell, and also moved my furniture around my room for a bit of a channnnnge.
Here is Mr. Moon. In his full.

Saturday I went to Canterbury and paid off the rest of my holiday flights, so thats now done and dusted, time to move onto saving for the remaining time I have left in the country.
Had a Wagamama for lunch which was lush, then chinese for dinner which was even more lush, I think I may have overdosed on noodles however.
Then in the evening I went to the Casino, it was awesome. Lost 40 quid but won 35 quid so only 5 down. Happy with that!
Then, sunday, I did nothing!
Friday, 18 July 2008
Things are going well at the moment, i've done a hell of alot of exercise which probably helps. Been out on my bike alot and played a fair bit of football too.
Nothing much to report to be honest, just living life I guess.

So thank you beach, thank you bench, thank you book, and thank you bike for helping me feel free today.
Whilst cycling back I gained a puncure. So I got off, I took the wheel off, i patched it up, put it on, pumped it up. Hell yeah, it worked.
Great sense of achievement, cycled home.
I swear this is what weekends are all about.

Sunday I watched the grand prix, well done Massa. I also realised I have Lego man hair.
I have also set up a random spin-off site which is amusing to say the least.
Hooray for the Lonely Heart's Club. A portal for completely made up people to look for absolutely nothing. Entirely pointless. But amusing none the less.
