Gumpin' it Up


Not sure if any of you have been to Bubba Gump Shrimp, but I want to tell you about it. First of all it's right in Time Square so it's pretty busy. It was a 45 minute wait, but we just walked around the Square so it wasn't too bad. While we were waiting we decided to stand in the gift shop because the rest of the place was so crowded. Lucky for us these two guys that worked there came up and started recommending places to go and shows to see.

I'm fairly certain one of them got his ideas from Sex and the City because he told us to go to Bed (a club) and the Meatpacking District for shopping and more clubs. It was pretty entertaining.

So once we finally got seated the place was pretty sweet. Very southern with seafood and such. The drink menu was on a ping pong paddle, there were signs that said Run Forrest Run or Stop Forrest Stop to get a waiters attention and our hush puppies came in a little bucket. It was all pretty sweet.

Our waitress was from Colorado, she's the one I referred to in my audio blog as being on audio pilot. When she told us where she was from Jackie asked what brought her to New York and she replied with the specials. It was pretty funny.

On another note, I was perusing iTunes today and came across this little piece of frivolity that many of you may be interested in...Gotta say the first two installments are just kind of funny, but I have high hopes for the future.

"Why did this happen, Forrest?"

This sure is a great picture. And the blog is bringing back all kinds of happy memories from the movie, "Momma always said, life is like..." or "Jennnnaayyyy!" So great. Anyhow, sorry about your waitress, you should have slapped her and asked again, "So what brought you to NYC, jackass?" I find that most people respond when you start calling them "jackass". Anyway, just a suggestion for next time. Also, did you get a new camera???????
