    I am offering sandwiches to homeless people. Give me money so I can buy more sandwiches for them. If you are homeless, I will give you a bologna sandwich from my pocket.

    I hate anyone that interrupts my commute, but yeah, breakdancers are the worst.

    Oh my god. I always feel like I'm on some terrible hidden camera show when that happens, and struggle not to laugh. It's just so ridiculous a scenario, especially before 10 a.m.

    I do like the elderly gentlemen who sing old doo-wop songs.

    I'm pretty alright with musicians, I can safely ignore them without fear of getting my face kicked in.
    They're at least using what talents they possess to try to get money, unlike the people that just walk down the middle begging for money.

    I like the guy with the double bass, as he has the least portable instrument in the troupe. And I'm a double bass player so I know they're a pain to move about. But yeah, the doo-wop guys take the cake -- I haven't been able to determine whether the missing teeth are due to hygiene or angry marks.

    Have you experienced the "terrible improvisational jazz guy." He made one trip home interminable, and nobody liked him.

    i am stone cold with that stuff

    the only time i ever gave anyone anything is outside slaughtered lamb when deeb gave some homeless guy money and i only gave him money out of guilt and because i knew deeb would make fun of me forever for staring the dude in the face and going "nope." like the heartless bastard that i am

    I never give to random people on the street.

    The way I remember it, you were the one who gave first and I followed suit only because I didn't want you to make the point that private charity could work if liberals would step up instead of looking for the government to take other people's money.

    If we only had that dude's version of events we could go full Roshomon.

    If I remember correctly, there were also Christmas Carolers carolling outside a sex shop.

    deeb you liar

    you fed his crazed fantasies about me being the devil or something (seriously, the guy was staring me in the face and going "YOU HAVE A LOOK IN YOUR EYES") and then gave him a dollar

    and the guy looked at me

    and i thought

    "is getting stabbed worth a dollar?"

    i decided that it wasnt

    also yes there were carolers outside the sex shop

    ANYWAY the point is you definitely acted first

    As I recall you gave him $5!
    And it was because holiday spirit and year end bonus checks.

    I really want to hear from the homeless guy now.

    All that said, I can totally host the ultimate marvel marathon at my/Nexus' place, as I have all the movies except the avengers, and then we could go see the Avengers, saving oodles of money and time spent in a theater.

    i gave him 5 because i reached into my pocket and pulled out a wadded up 5 and a wadded up 1 and decided that 5 dollars was worth not being shanked in the liver

    You guys are both remembering this wrong. That was no bum, it was just me.

    The money didn't go to waste though, I used it to wipe my mouth off after puking into a garbage can after stumbling off the train 5 stops too early. That was one magical night.

    Question, do we need to print tickets for Saturday or is it a reservation thing?

  • Casual EddyCasual Eddy Fighting the War on String Registered User regular
    oh! for SLEEP NO MORE if you didn't hear my advice

    -read cliff notes/wikipedia of Macbeth. there's actually a few plot threads I forgot when I went to see this
    -wear comfy shoes and clothes you can move easily in. you may be jogging/walking quickly
    -don't be afraid to go off by yourself. it's actually quite difficult to follow a friend or significant other around, and if you're alone you can go and do whatever you want and follow who you want. there's a few points where the actors converge so you can meet up if you really want to, and everyone ends up together at the 'end'
    -you can do a lot of exploring/going through drawers etc but the most interesting thing to do is to follow the actors around.
    -if you get super beat, go to the bar and have a drink and then get back out there. the play repeats itself during the block of time you're there, even so you won't see everything.

    most of all, do what you want (except talk) and have a blast! It's really fucking awesome

    My email says
    Delivery Method: Your reservation may be claimed at the McKittrick Hotel.
    and my order confirmation says
    No physical tickets will be distributed prior to check-in.

    so

    If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

    Warning for people who like to carry bags: They make you check your bags. Like, even small ones. So have pockets and/or a person with pockets to carry your money for drinks and such. I for one spent the night with my ID and debit card in my bra.

    I usually keep all of my things in my underwear anyway, so no worries here. Just a huge bulging mess of keys, gum, bags of chips, candybars, kleenex, condoms, money, ID, combs, a water bottle, sunscreen, a spare pair of shoes, tampons in case i meet a lady and she needs them

    Sometimes ladies are like "whoa you sure do have quite the package!" and i tell them "that's just my vidal sassoon shampoo and some billiards balls don't get your hopes up!" and yet they always do get their hopes up and i let them down.

    This has been yet another textual trip into my pants. Thank you for keeping your hands inside the car at all times. Next time try to remember there is to be no flash photography.
