Hawaii in NYC: Last night, we celebrated my friend Trish’s birthday a couple of days early. We went to Waikiki Wally’s and I got semi-plastered. Well, not really, but their drinks were mad strong! I had a headache when I woke up this morning that lasted until after I had eaten lunch. The joint was phat –it was Hawaiian-themed and totally authentic looking. Makes you feel like you’re in Oahu when in fact, you’re right in the middle of the East Village and the rain is pouring outside. Food was yummy, and company was great. I would totally go back there again! It’s a fun place to go celebrate something. Check out Trish and Rol's site for the pictures of the crazy night!
Last episode of FRIENDS Tonight: I didn’t really start watching the show until I moved to NY circa 1995. I first heard of the show via my high-school boyfriend who surprisingly, recommended the show as being “cool” even though he was a Goth-punk rocker slash starving artist. Go figure. Though I didn’t follow it from the beginning, the reruns have given me all the background and I’ve seen almost every episode. I like the show because it’s consistent in developing the characters. I like how they have these running jokes (e.g, “we were on a break!”) and you’re privy to all their secrets and their idiosyncrasies. I also love their “flashback to the 80’s” episodes and a lot of their witty dialogue (especially Chandler). The writing itself hasn’t been consistent (some jokes were flat-out sucky), but the show as a whole is very satisfying. It’s weird knowing that the show has been on for 11 years and it’ll be over forever! So you know I'm watching it tonight.
CONGRATS to my friends Jill and George for passing the NY BAR!
