Stay-cation time again. Another weekend in Philly.
Is it me or is there enough history in this city to choke yourself? Seriously there are signs every where for people who did this or that. Or who lived where? Or where to eat what?
I mean check it, there is a 3d outline of where Benjamin Franklin's house once stood. Meaning it is no longer there so you have to imagine it in its place.
We came down for the Haunted tour at Eastern State Prison. Well worth it by the way but the other reason we came down (I suspect the main reason she wanted to come) was for Mercato. I have been told about this food for a couple years now and wanted it. Badly.
I mean look at this - Lobster shrimp ravioli. Personally, I think they are more like dumplings but either way these things were delicious.
I can't remember what this dish was but it was good too. **update: I have been told it was a Short Rib Ragu. Say it again: Short. Rib. Ragu. yummmmmm
Also the pasta bolognese is good too. Pork, beef, and veal. Mmmmm.

Sunday Muay Thai fights
Another Flushing fight. This time. In the afternoon. I am liking this though. Lazy afternoon. Fights. What can be better? Though this does remind me I need to start working out again. Damn I haven't done anything active since the run. This gonna hurt.

Aight next morning
Maybe I drank a little too much last night.
People worrying about their jobs and making sure they keep it can get them to seem petty. I am sure that some of them are nice but in that atmosphere it just had an image. One side of the room: regular. The other side: the popular ones. In between a staircase but basically a gulf. Its probably like that at every company.
Seriously I drank too much. I accidentally took a header into the girl next to me when I bent down to pick up my stuff. Opps.
Farting. Right now I am farting. In the middle of a TV shows after party. Somehow this particular act seems fitting as compared to the groups of people that I am mingling with tonight. Does it stink? No one notices cause they are crowded around whom ever they think can get them the most. Socialogical or otherwise. "Who likes who? Did I say the wrong thing?" Fuck you who the hell cares? Peons do, that's who. They fret and run to and fro (sometimes fast. depending on the who they suck up to). Did I mention that I am very drunk right now? I think that might give some context.
But serious, I am standing next to two people. One trying to appease the other (guy and a girl) by saying this happens all the time ( it doesn't). According to the guy there's inside beautiful and outside beautiful. But apparently the girl he's with is both. How coincidental. Is this what real life is like? Really? No wonder Jesus choose to get killed.

Great day to take in some art. We checked out the Storm King Art Center. I think it's the size that impresses me.
The land is beautiful for a nice October bike ride too.
I have driven by this place a few times and saw the structures in the distance from 87. Always wonder what it was so we decided to drive up for the day and find out. It's "nice" up here. I say that cause I can't think out any word to say. Romantic isn't quite right but it is a date-ish spot. Scenic could work but only if you're into it. For this post modern (is that what this is?) stuff I am not heavily onto to stop and critique but the sheer size of some of these is enough to marvel. They need to make more art like this. Something on a grand size. Enough to say to even the most jaded person "Well fuck you. What have you done."

Weddings and Fall Foliage
Weddings. Some are like a chore and others a gift. The most recent one I went to in Vermont and we have looked forward to it all year. Two friends of mine tied the knot in one of the few states they are able to. Great choice though. The fall atmosphere is beautiful.
The weather wasn't THAT chilly but a quick ceremony helps to move things along. Simple service with their close family and friends made things intimate.
Did I mention that Vermont is beautiful this time of the year?
The best part: I actually got my city girlfriend to go on a hike. Through nature and not through a clothing store!
Plus a Car-beque. A CAR-BEQUE!!!

Attack Girl Swim Team vs The Undead
On recommendation I checked this movie out. Needless to say, I got Rick Rolled into watching a porn. I can't even say soft core cause I am pretty sure there is some hard core scenes here that don't show every thing. I had a vague idea of what I was walking into when I got this from Netflix (Blockbuster would NEVER carry this. Maybe that's why they are out of business.) but knowing and actually watching are two different things. Thank god I didn't play this for a family BBQ.
Anything Vivid or Analbolic turns out now looks like Oscar worthy performances. Although there are some highlights. I mean literally the main adult film actress threw nose plugs with metal spikes attached. And that's not the worse part: Laser dildo weapon makes an appearance.
Can't say I enjoyed the movie but not knowing exactly what I was watching could have been the difference. Seriously, maybe I would have thought different if instead of popcorn and soda I brought tissues and lotion. Wow is all I can say.
Next up in the queue: Casablanca. I will need that to wipe the stench off me.
Friends and Neighbors in Action 5K run
The 5k run that I have been training for has come and gone. Thought I was prepared but trying and doing are two separate realities. Did you know they have hills in New Jersey? This was a total shock to me too. Didn't do as bad as I thought I was going to do but I could have done better. Oh well I have something to shoot for next time.
Wait...next time? Uh? I want to do more of this?
