holidays across the pond

Postby steveking9174 on Mon Nov 12, 2012 11:38 am

I am about to embark on a fantastic holiday in the next week, I will be jumping across the pond and landing in New York ready for an adventure. I will only be in the big apple for a few days unfortunately as I am being brutally forced by my loving girlfriend to go to miami for a day before being dragging kicking and screaming on a cruise around the bahamas. This as I am sure you are aware will be absolute torture, having to spend a whole 10 days sitting by the pool in the sun. I plan to overcome the ungodly torture by drinking myself back to happiness and using up all the wifi I can get my grubby little IT fingers on.

I would very much like the Mint communities sympathy on this matter, im sure if you were in my situation I would also sympathise with you! Imagine being on a luxury cruise ship, being baked alive by the sun, having to endure the sights and sounds of the bahamas, all whilst watching my girlfriend stroll around in a bikini. Then to make matters worse I am going to have to choose which restaraunt to go to dinner at every night! The pain and horror is never going to escape me!

But before you shed a tear for the horror I am about to partake in remember this, all my beer has been paid for! I know, the pain and torture continues!


On a side note, what would you recommend my doing in New York as its my first visit. I am an IT geek, and a general all around geek. All I know of New York is shops and food. Is there anywhere I can go to keep my geekiness topped up?

Please if you are reading this please show your sympathy below :D :D :D

My hart felt sympathy for you having to spend a whole 10 days drinking beside the pool. if you really dont want to go and have already bought the tickets and booked the hotel - I go instead of you, it'll be a hard in the sun by the pool with your girlfriend, its a dirty job but I'm up for it :D

I may just have to take one for the team on this, I couldnt live with myself knowing what pain and torture is involved.

So to spare you the misery I will go and endure the living hell, but just remember the beer may be but my soul is not :D
