Another Day at the Top
Well, another day, another few thousand visitors. I can now not feel my legs below the knees. At this rate, by the end of the week i will be totally numb. This might be good.
Apparently they already had a proposal on the deck yesterday. going down on one knee, ring, the whole nine yards. it’s just too cute.
By the way, i think you will all be interested to discover that there is a multimedia area on the 69th floor called the Target Room. yep. Aim right here.
Some more things i learned about America today:
- Treating an american like an idiot is considered being helpful. When guests at the deck are directed around in loud, clear voices normally used on small children they do not find this patronising or insulting to their intelligence. they find it helpful. Good Morning Sir! Step Right This Way!! Pamela Your Lovely Host Will Press The Elevator Button For You Because You Are Too Stupid To Use a Lift!!! Enjoy Your View!!!!
- Working two jobs is not unusual among the working class. i’ve met two people so far who work two jobs a day, six days a week. That seriously sucks.
- Limousines are everywhere in NY. I saw more stretch limos just getting from the airport to the hotel than in the rest of my life up till now. I even saw one that had been converted into a family car. I shit you not. Mom, Dad and four kids.
I have saturday off so i’m going to do the tourist thing for a bit. I might take the camera to work tomorrow and see if i can’t get some photos. A few personal ones, but maybe some nice ones for work. Right now, I’m propped up on the hotel bed, watching Speed with the laptop on it’s eponymous perch, and life is not too bad. Not too bad at al.
