why pay more when you can pay less?

the main goal of this summer has been to experience as much of nyc as possible while spending the least amount of money. considering pretty much every night is like a weekend night (work be damned) we definitely cannot continue with our normal spending habits... to that end, ami and i have been rockin' it at seeing and doing everything that's been on our to do list for three years but "never had time to do" (lies. all lies...we had the time, we were just lazy-asses) whatevskis, better now than never right?? so last night we went to the debut of the hudson river flicks on pier 54 to watch iron man with hundreds of our closest friends. sitting there waiting for our other friends put me in the angsty-ist mood ever... i was getting SUPER territorial of our blanket space! these new yahhkahhs don't mess when it comes to squeezing into infinitesimally small spaces. maybe it comes from years of experience of living in shoebox sized apartments, i dunno, but it was stressin' me out. oh man just think about it, i'm getting flustered. clearly i have to let it go. anyway the concept as a whole is pretty phenom and i'll def go back, just take more blankets with me (or less people. or a better ratio. i don't know but it will work.) the pier was absolutely GORGEOUS at sunset and the weather was perfect. next week's movie is vicky cristina barcelona which could get seriously awkward if there are kids present but oh well. i find that movie very entertaining but one of the most depressing movies ever. (no one else seems to agree with the latter part of that sentence so don't even worry if you think i'm crazy. i probably am.)

we're going for round two tonight, but this time instead of a movie, we're going to a concert! wooooo. flosstradamus and matt&kim. i've never heard of them but obs spent the whole day at work listening to their tunes and i think it's gonna be pretty much a hoppin' time. i mean it's free so how could it not be fun? considering flosstradamus' website says, "2 DJs, 4 turntables, and lots of people getting buck on the dancefloor." never mind that the dancefloor is an uneven pier. done and done.
