I had a very late night yesterday at Anime Next. I went out there because I had a Friday night free up at the last minute, and ended up in deep NJ, playing cards, eating dinner, and hanging with friends. The usual late night convention thing — ended up going to bed after sunrise, waking up slowly, yadda yadda yadda.
I’d felt a bit of unease and had some difficulty waking up, but I chalked that up to the late night. There was quite a bit of screaming and yelling next door, prompting Oshidori and I to scream “Herpes!!!!” over and over until they quieted down. We even heard random thumping against the wall, go figure. Damned kids, they’re really making the cons hard to want to go back to.
Ordered room service for breakfast. The wait service was slow and when the food arrived they’d forgotten several things. Food wasn’t bad, but the poor waitress looked frazzled, bags under her eyes. Something was up with our Television too, no service. Repair guy could not actually do anything about it either – chalked it up to the TV having a “mind of its own”. Once we unplugged the internet we were able to get along fine, and watched Police Academy 2 of all things.
There was a cold rain falling when I got out of there. Damned shuttle bus between the hotel and the train station was down — had to hop a taxi. Putzed around on my cellphone till I fell asleep on the train. Woke up with a crashing headache (Horrible really) — all sounds are amplified, etc.. Ran to my parent’s place, popped some pills, went to Chinatown. Usual crowds, albiet a little muffled and lethargic in the rain and fog. Lots of people on their phones for some reason, but not talking much, just staring at their phones or shuffling around. Traffic to my apartment in Harlem was a bitch, accidents everywhere. Damned rain. Lots of police vehicles zipping around as well.
Ahh well. Glad I’m home.. Might as well go on the internet and see what’s been going on today.
