Rachelle & Jeannette :: Herald Square, Manhattan

Last night I arrived in Newark, took a cab to Hoboken, and then met up with Tien and Jeannette in Koreatown in Manhattan. BonChon specializes in Korean fried chicken. We had drumsticks and wings in the ginger-soy and spicy flavors. We also got Mexican corn (you read that right) and some spicy rice cakes. I liked the food but the service was horrible!

This morning Jess, Julie, Stephanie and I left for South Yarmouth, Cape Cod. We’re here right now in our rental house. I was glad that Jeannette and Tien were free to meet up because it might be the only time I have to see them on this trip and a visit with each of them was long overdue.

PS. Check out BonChon’s site. Really strange. I think maybe it’s just very literally translated from Korean? The way they describe the restaurant and the food is like they’re making a power point presentation about TPS reports more than enticing you with colorful language to make you want to eat there. Check out this graphic I pulled from their site, for example:

“Hey, smart ass. I asked my old man about sticking your tongue to a flagpole in the winter, and he says that it’ll freeze right to the pole, just like I told ya.”

Last night Jess & I got a bunch of Christmas shopping done at Macy’s. We saved tons of money thanks to Kevin‘s 20% friends & family discount. Thanks again for sharing it with me, Kev! On the way out of the store on the way to the F we stopped to admire Macy’s Christmas windows. Each window has a scene from the movie A Christmas Story, a movie that I really hate. I think it’s because we always had to watch it on Christmas at my Aunt Deb & Uncle Rich’s house. Much to my chagrin, this movie is often proclaimed to be the best Christmas movie ever made.

Shopping for a Bathing Suit

June 26th, 2002 · 1 Comment

I’d almost rather gouge my eyes out with a plastic spork from Taco Bell than go shopping for a bathing suit. But, last night I went with two friends and it was actually….. dare I say?…. fun. And I found a great Ralph Lauren bikini at Macy’s (all their swimwear is on sale right now – score!).
