Penn Station

Pictures of the Week – Saturday Edition

One would think that when Geranium is out of town I would be able to turn out a bunch of this worthless dribble. I mean, I consider it a dick move while we are together on the weekend for me to blog and not spend time with her. You may be wondering why at this particular moment I am not doing that but she is still in the rack asleep with the dog. And one of them is snoring like a freight train.

Here are some pictures of the past week that I have had in my iFoam.

My Mermaid Bikini wearing slinger of spirits lets me make bad decisions. That’s why we love her so!
Kept the plants alive while Geranium was away!
I am never going to see him up here in New York.
B Duffel had some strong shoe game going on yesterday. I wasn’t about to take it lying down. It is after all Dead Elvis Week
I don’t know what is more ballsy. Sitting on the steps at Penn Station or wearing sandals instead of a HazMat Suit.
And then you have got this. Notice her hands are died Aqua as well. She got off at (dramatic pause) Times Square

I hope you have a good weekend. We are chilling here today and then finding a rooftop in Park Slope tomorrow.

1 Hour To The Airport Door to Door – Downtown Brooklyn to EWR

When I was taking all of those trips abroad to see Geranium I became well versed in airport travel and flying in and out of Newark International (EWR) airport. I liked flying out of there based on the fact that it is a United hub and they had more options than JFK to Europe. Before we moved to Brooklyn we hardly ever flew out of EWR since LGA was the quicker airport and JFK had the flat $50.00 fee. Uber to EWR from the UES or Brooklyn always cost us about $100.00. That was until we found New Jersey Transit.

The other day one of my peers asked me why I was always flying out of Newark International Airport considering that JFK and LGA were closer. I told him that I actually found that public transportation to EWR is actually quicker and much more reliable than to JFK and a shit ton better than LGA. It also only costs me like roughly $15.75 and I don’t have to worry about traffic or a bad uber driver. Let me explain via pictures that I took on my trip to the Redneck Rivera.

*Editors Note – You can’t be traveling with tons of luggage on MTA or NJT. You will get scolded and its a bitch to go up and down the stairs.

31 Minutes to LGA with ZERO traffic
39 Minutes to JFK with ZERO Traffic and the Public Transportation is slightly better
By far the longest travel by car and Traffic can be a bitch and expensive
Leave out of the Nevins Station via the 2/3 Train to Penn Station
Penn Station jump on a EWR Bound New Jersey Train that runs every 15 minutes for 3 stops to Newark International
Jump off New Jersey Transit and you grab the Air Train to the Terminal
Clear TSA Pre Check and I am sitting here 1 hour from when I boarded the 2/3 train in Brooklyn
Next Thing I know I am on the plane heading out of here!
Well look who I ran into in the Pensacola Airport!

In Memphis the magic saying was “It is 15 Minutes to the airport.” Here it is “It is 1 Hour to the airport.”

“Let me tell you about this Fish”

Fourth of July holiday weekend, time to count the number of Emergency Room visits where the injured’s persons last words were “Hold my Beer and Watch This!” As I type this,  yesterday the overhyping news agencies were reporting that an explosion went off in Central Park and the city was in lock down. It was more like someone was trying to set off a homemade firework in broad daylight and skillet (haven’t used that term in a while) blew off part of his foot. This 3 day weekend we were going to stay in town and had plans on each day with friends in a different part of the city. Saturday morning we arise and head to Penn Station to catch a 10:50 train to Wantagh Long Island to hang with our friends RP & MC. Now this is our first trip to Long Island and I have to say, it is rather nice and I see the attraction for people who have families and a need grass and a backyard.

We arrive at Casa de P and head to the backyard where he has a great pool and entertaining patio deck. Because the Monkey heads are good with other dogs we were allowed to bring them and they enjoyed the trip on the LIRR. In addition to burgers and dogs our host had prepared a whole Yucatan Style Red Snapper for us to have for dinner. To say that this was impressive is an understatement! We enjoyed our afternoon and evening with tons of stories and some good ball busting. What a great way to start the 4th of July holiday weekend!

IMG_1590Cut that sucker up baby! We will chew 20 times to make sure there are no bones in it!

IMG_1595The Surgeon hard at work!

IMG_1597RP – “Bob I swear to God if you touch my fish one more Fecking time, I am going to cut you!”  Bob – “I got two words for you!”

IMG_1593That is a lot of fish!

IMG_1600I have never laughed so hard in my life that day! Such a good time!

IMG_1601The fish was good, I have had something similar at the Ritz in Aruba that was equally as good.

IMG_1603Maya – that big white dog turns his head and I am getting some of that fish!

IMG_1586Hadn’t seen him in 15 years!

Again thank you R & M for a great afternoon and evening!
