things that are making you happy - Page 2233

Thread Starter 
I heard one of the funniest stories I've heard in years today. we had lunch with some old high school friends of my wife, from Colombia. one of them served in the Colombian army, rich kids don't serve in the army, they find a way out, so I asked him why he served.

so, his parents made arrangements for him to stay out of the army, like all the other rich kids in his school. he started university. he gets a call from the army, telling him that he should come to pick up his exemption document. he goes to the office they tell him to, he actually goes with a few friends in the car, on the way to a bar. he figures he'll pop in and get the document and go.

he goes in to the office, and there are 3 other people in line. the first guy in line says "they called me and told me to come get my exemption" and the sergeant says "hey, that's great, unfortunately we ran out of exemptions" and an MP comes and pulls him off and throws him in a bus. this guy turns and tries to run and they grab him, too, and throw him on the bus. it turns out that he had the exemption, but the recruiters came up short and had to scrape up a half a dozen soldiers. he ended up serving a year. I thought it was hilarious.

I'm sick as a dog. My throat hurts so much I can only whisper a few words at a time. My fiancee is cooking all my meals and taking care of me. It's very romantic.

Met with some old med school batchmates yesterday. They did the eclectic thing, got married right after medschool then migrated to Australia to do research work in the Oceania region (without any family in that region).

We did the super touristy NYC stuff that you try to be blasé about but actually makes you re-appreciate the city.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Tasting menu at Baboo for lunch (actually pretty awesome)
Pictures at The Cosby Show brownstone steps (ironically located in Manhattan)
Pictures at the Sex and the City Apt steps (friend's wife was ecstatic that area in fairness so beautiful)
MoMa (even when its busy on a sat afternoon its still awesome)
Museum of Natural History and shake shack (no lines, still full from lunch but still ate)
Central Park - this is where we said our goodbyes. (i figured central park is best experienced alone)

We drove and the best parts was getting nonchalant TV parking street spots in front of the restaurant, MoMa, and central park/museum of natural history.

Damn that's fast. Nice going.

Sat my third exam yesterday. For the first time, I'm confident I passed (the first two times I was hopeful and did pass). One to go.

Oh my. This sounds like the type of thing that could make me get fat for the first time ever.

This weather in the NE is insane. I'm walking around reminding myself that it's August and that I should be miserable.

I know. I haven't had the A/C on in at least two weeks. Feels really strange.

Seriously. For once, I cannot complain about the weather in New York.

Finalized order for an engagement ring.

Stitch may be disappointed. I even went online for this purchase. Maybe people will start believing me when I say I don't store shop.
