My latest visit to NYC!
Category: Travels

It is a pygmy deer!

So on Wednesday I popped up to NYC and came back early Thursday morning. It was pretty fun, as I got to see lots of aminals (intentionally misspelled -- identify the reference if you can!) at the Central Park Zoo and hang out with some folks that I haven't seen in quite a while. Lunch at Pho Tu Do in Chinatown was also great -- probably the best meal I've had there thus far. I generally make it a point to check out a new restaurant every time I'm in town, but PTD is the only one so far to which I'd actually return. Prices are low and portion sizes are HUGE, too. I tend to order two things at Asian restaurants in order to make sure that I get my fill -- especially when the prices are low, since I associate low prices with appetizer-sized portions -- but that is totally unnecessary at PTD. I'll probably say more about the restaurant either here or on Scary-Crayon, but suffice it to say that I totally recommend it to folks in the area. 🙂

M&Ms in crayon-shaped bags!

Among the many things I saw were also M&Ms in crayon-shaped plastic bags, so you know I had to get a photo of that! I was tempted to buy a bag, but then I remembered that I only buy M&Ms for the purpose of consuming them. There is no way I would be able to eat M&Ms in a crayon-shaped bag, because that would entail opening said bag and causing it to lose its crayon shape. So since I would have been hopelessly unable to do that -- and therefore unable to eat the M&Ms inside -- I chose to leave them there. (By the way, I have a problem using crayons for similar reasons. I tend to maybe use them once or twice and then retire them and either use a different, similar color or buy a new box of crayons altogether. Crayons must be permitted to retain their crayon-like shape, and it is unacceptable to tear their stylish wrappers.)

More about my latest visit to NYC next time, when I will write about all of the cool swag that I picked up! In the meantime, suffice it to say that 4 for $10 DVD deals are very, very good things. :mrgreen:

    Pho, candy crayons, and the zoo! Why couldn't my Wednesday have been like that?!

    I'm sure that your days on the whole are far more enjoyable than mine, Jax.

    I was like what the heck is that animal but the mouseover says it's a pygmy deer. I do not think I've ever seen an animal such as that. I was going to guess mutant ferret.

    So it turns out your Turtles beat my Scottish guy in the box office this weekend. Let's hear it for 80's icons returning once more! 🙂

    (Even if you didn't think the movie was all that.)

    And when the Transformers movie gets released, THAT'S when '80s nostalgioa is gonna come in full force.

    Yeah, but did you get cupcakes from Magnolia and go take pictures on Carrie's stoop? 😉
