New York City: Day 3/4

I'm a day late, but hopefully not a buck short.

Day 3:
-outlet mall shopping at Woodbury Commons (outlet mall).
-this place is a sinkhole for your money.
-women beware of their fabulous prices.
-went to Uncle Sik and Aunt Gigi's home. Huge like a mansion. Steep hilled backyard.
-went to local Italian restaurant for dinner. Waitress caught someone trying to dine and dash. Culprit caught by waiter and chef. He threatened the chef afterwards. Scared my cousins.
-1.5 hour drive back home.

Day 4 (WEDDING DAY):
-wedding of my cousin Eileen and Dr. Victor Yim.
-venue: country club on Long Island (I forget the name), 1.5hr drive from Brooklyn.
-...so this is what a 6-figured wedding looks like... $1,000 centerpieces. Shit.
-Eileen looks drop dead beautiful and both seem extremely happy.
-early reception @2pm.
-video montage of their engagement... it took place underwater while scuba diving!
-so sleepy.
-wedding ends super early, 5pm.
-I'm not hungry, but apparently we're headed to dinner now, this is new.
-enough time to catch 2/3 of TNA ppv.
-talked to Stephen til 1 about cooking, music, highschool. Wow, nostalgia.

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

George Clooney is UP IN THE AIR!!!

So this is the last in the three movies that I was looking forward to at the end of 2009 (the other two being Bad Lieutenant and Avatar). It's hard to say which movies I enjoyed more because they're all so different, but I can confidently say that I enjoyed all three. Also of the three, this movie is the most realistic when it's all said and done. Up In The Air tells a story about Ryan Bingham, who flies all over America firing people. Laying people off is such a tough thing to do that companies that need to do so hire people like Ryan. It becomes reflective as Ryan sees his own life of isolation at odds compared to the lives of those around him. It's apt that he has such a hollow and thankless job which parallels his own life. Because he's on the road for 250+ days of the year, his own life is quite hollow; with no stable relationships, weakened family ties and no friendships in sight. In fact the first time we see his apartment, I was kind of shocked. Up

R.I.P. Evan Tanner

The body of the professional fighter and former UFC champion, Evan Tanner, 37, was found in the Palo Verde mountain area of California on September 8th, 2008. He was found a few miles away from his campsite on foot, with no water, where the temperatures were around 110 degrees fahrenheit. The coroner's report listed the cause of death as from heat exposure. Tanner left Oceanside, California on September 2nd. On September 4th, he sent a text message to a friend telling him that his motorcycle was out of gas, that he was out of water, and if his friend didn't hear from him the next day, to call the authorities. Unfortunately, Evan never returned home. I'm not the hugest MMA fan, I consider myself a casual fan, and a n00b at best. I was listening to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio , and the story of Tanner's life sounded intriguing. As fantastic as it sounds, Tanner ventured into the deserts in search of treasure and adventure. I ki
