A List of Things I Learned in NYC this weekend
  1. When my grandmother was christened as an infant she was given a pretty gold locket with her initials on it. She bought a new chain for it and gave it to me. It's 82 years old.
  2. I apparently have a "hope chest" and my gram just finished a baby blanket it for it. (Keep hoping Grandma).
  3. If you show up early to a meeting place, scope it out and make sure the other person hasn't shown up early, too, but is just sitting in a different place.
  4. You can't really walk comfortably with an umbrella in Manhattan on a Saturday, especially not when you are walking beside someone.
  5. New Yorkers don't look behind them when they walk through a door to make sure no one is behind them. (Where I come from, you hold the door open for the person behind you, even if you have to wait for a second.)
  6. If things were right in the world TAB would have a girlfriend. He'd take good care of one.
  7. He's probably not a misogynist.
  8. I don't like being interrupted.
  9. I don't have any hobbies. I probably should do something about that.
  10. If you stand up in front of hundreds of people and ask to eat Mila Kunis's poo, there's probably something very wrong with you. If you're Seth Green and you riff off that comment all night long, you probably want to eat Mila Kunis's poo too, but were afraid to ask her.
  11. It's good to laugh.
  12. Seth McFarlane may say he's thankful to the fans who brought back Family Guy, but he doesn't act like it.
  13. When you are eating lunch at a diner in Middle Village on a Sunday afternoon, do not look out the big plate glass window, because you may see a guy get out of the backseat of a car and throw up by the parking meter.
  14. Rice pudding doesn't taste as good after you've seen someone puke.
  15. When you get in from seeing Family Guy Live at 2am, and then go to church with your grandma at 8am, and then drive for 2 hours, your eyes will feel like lead paperweights and you'll fall asleep around 8pm.

    My follow-up:

    1. That's a very cool thing. Treasure that locket.
    2. When she says "hope chest", she means her hope, not yours.
    3. Yeah, 40 minutes in the same place is kind of a long time. We'll know better for when next we meet.
    4. Umbrellas and crowds don't mix.
    5. It's the culture. If I did that, then I apologize for my rudeness.
    6. Thank you. I very much appreciate the compliment.
    7. You're ruining my reputation now. ;)
    8. Again, if it was me (and I can be long-winded sometimes), I apologize.
    9. Yes. Hobbies are cool.
    10. I can't believe people ruined the opportunity to ask real questions to these people with a question like that. It takes all kinds. Seth Green seems like a cool guy.
    11. Indeed.
    12. Indeed (see my blog for more details).
    13, 14, and 15: I'm glad you had a good trip here (vomitting aside) and had a safe trip home (exhaustion aside). I was very pleased to meet you and hope we can do something together again sometime.

    Re: #5
    This was a general and not a specific observation!!

    Sounds like that's one place I don't want to go :/

    Nice post though :)

    What else is in your hope chest? Did you get to go through it?

    I love hope chests. I never had one.

    No, I'm only going to get to see the hope chest when a) I get engaged b)my grandma dies. Since "a)" seems highly unlikely and I don't want "b)" to happen, I think I'm S.O.L.

    I'm laughing at this one. Which one of you left the other and didn't you both have cell phones to remedy the mistake sooner? hehe

    I totally learned that on #4 when I was there in Nov. It rained quite a bit and you just bump into everyone, so I sacrificed fashion with a lined hoodie.

    Same here on the door issue. That was weird for me, too.

    Interruption is my biggest pet peeve, too.

    You seemed to have a good time. Hopefully, you can come back up when I'll be in town.

    How does the song go? IIIIII looove NY. I live in Westchester and am only 20-30 minutes away from the city. Of course as all major cities, we have big crowds that go at a faster pace... that's part of the energy I love. And rude people can be found everywhere, especially in major cities. And um, yea... I gave up on the umbrella when it's raining too! In fact, if I can avoid the city when it rains, I do. But it's an awesome city... really, it is.

    How cool about the locket... I'm sentimental that way :)
