The weekend started well and got even better.  

But first – I had an interesting moment in Union Square on Saturday. First, a roided-out douche walked by me wearing this awesome shirt. Ready for it? It’s pretty spectacular. It said:

“There’s no room in this country for hyphenated Americans.”

The hell? First off, who thinks that way? America is unique – it really is a melting pot (or mixed salad, as I like to call it). If you’re going to get all up on your horse about what “America” really means, that’s it. And second – who puts that ignorant stuff on a tee shirt? And wears it around New York City?

Okay, back to the awesomeness of the weekend.

Saturday Jon Mark and I met up for yummy Indian food at Cafe Spice on University. I had this really good wrap with a spiced potato filling.  Yummy. Then we headed over to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It’s entertaining, for sure. My favorite scene was this intense chase scene. I won’t spoil it, but you’ll know what I’m talking about. A lot of hyperventilating during that scene.

Afterwards, we went and met up with a couple of friends – well, a friend and his friend in from out of town – for drinks in Manhattan. Then dinner then back to my friend’s house for some Guitar Hero. Have any of you played that? Man, I didn’t realize how hard it was! I loved it. Anyway, after we went out to a pub, then back to my friend’s place for French toast. I was out later than I’ve been out in possibly five years, and it was awesome.

After two hours of sleep, Michelle and I left for a train ride out to Long Beach (Long Island, not New Jersey and not California) so we could get some pre-cancerous cells and a few more wrinkles. It was perfect weather, and if I had managed to completely cover my back with sun block, I would have deemed it a perfect beach day. So now, I’m a little itchy, but good.

Today I met up with a friend for lunch and a walk through Central Park. It was really nice – good food, fabulous weather and really nice conversation and just generally good times.

Afterwards, Herman and Kathleen and I saw Iron Man and got dinner. The movie was really entertaining. Robert Downey Jr. was the perfect choice.

I’m pretty energized right now and ready for a fabulous summer!
