PE in the Big Apple

Sorry for not posting sooner! I've been back a few days, but I took a fuckton of pictures! It took me two days to sort through those and then a day or so to finish reading the book I had for the trip decompress.

PE seemed to really enjoy himself in NY. He did some of the normal touristy stuff, like walking the Brooklyn Bridge...

... going to the Shake Shack and White Castle (which we don't have here in the South. And that's probably a good thing. I was sick for at least an hour after THAT little visit through their drive-thru)...

... and climbing buildings. PE is so much more impressive than King Kong, don't you think?

He also met some new people!

Tickles make Buddha happy!

PE also picked up some pointers on being a local, like riding the subway...

... and doing subway-type stuff, like reading over people's shoulders.

I'm sure, by now, some of you are wondering where the picture is of PE at the Remember Me filming. Um, yeah. Erm, well.... you see, there isn't one (please don't hit me!). As AWESOME a picture as that would have been, that would have totally outed me as one of the bazillion fan-girls that were standing around salivating.

Those puddles aren't made from rain water. It's fangirl drool.

We did see some interesting, and sometimes disturbing, things on our trip. Some we didn't get pictures of, like Elvis riding his bike on the Brooklyn Bridge in his white jumpsuit. But some we did.

The sign says, "Time flies when you're having rum."
I'm adopting this as my new personal motto.

This kid has the coolest kite ever! Couldn't get it off the ground, but cool none the less.

Some artist set up a Hello Kitty sculpture garden near Rockefeller Center. For some reason, and I can't even begin to imagine what the guy was thinking, the artist thought it was a good idea to have several of the sculptures crying. Yeah, small children love to see that kind of stuff.

And last, but certainly not least, Superman and Batman. Superman looked so much like Andy Samberg that I thought they were shooting a Digital Short for SNL. They spent most of their time trying to get the sound to come out of their external speakers on their jambox. It was pretty obvious these guys don't work for Best Buy. The basic result of their endeavours was people ducking down, clutching their ears as LOUD squeeks, squalks and feed back were the only things coming out of their "high-tech" sound system. For all of 3 minutes, music actually emitted and they got-down-with-their-bad-selves. They also seemed to follow me around different areas of Central Park. Ever been stalked by two superheros? Kinda creepy.
