RandomAnthony | 14537 comments Gus is on the way to NY, but I hear he's caught in a snowstorm.

What do you think he's doing right now?

I think he's leading everyone on his flight in a spirited rendition of "Sweet, Caroline" to pass the time on the runway, waiting for the plane to take off.

Later, when he gets to NY, he'll go straight to that famous ice rink and do triple axles while his daughter watches.

After that he'll light a candle where CBGBs used to be.

What do you think Gus is doing on the way/after arriving in NY?

Loller, RA.

Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I think he's swearing a lot, knowing Gus. :)

I want a food report from Gus, like we got from Kevin.

Félix (habitseven) Oh, NY food! Yes!

mmmmm, food.

message 6: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Delivered any time of day or night!

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) Okay, here's my report:

No need to lead the passengers on a spirited rendition of "Sweet Caroline," since my flight on Thursday was mildly delayed - we arrived in the thick of the snowstorm (or as the local imbeciles called the media referred to it as a "snow-i-cane.") delayed by only 40 minutes. Getting around proved to be something of a bitch, though, considering NYC got pounded with 18 inches of snow.

Sadly, I didn't make it to CBGBs. Bummer.

Spent a lot of time with friends and family. Food-wise, NYC is the melting pot of ethnic cuisine, so there was a lot of eating involved. Most memorably was an Argentine parillada, consisting of an orgy of meat, meat and more meat. Apologies to my vegetarian friends. Also memorably was a trendy little bistro in Brooklyn, where my friends and I enjoyed a lovely brunch - I had the poached eggs and salmon, very delicious - and what seemed to be a ridiculously unlimited stream of Mimosas; I swear I counted 12 refills, but I could be wrong.

Then, of course, there's Gray's Papaya. You have to have their hot dogs, buttered buns, and an assorted fruit juice - I always have the pina colada, for some reason.

And, yes, Jackie, there was swearing. A LOT of swearing. Very public, very uninhibited swearing. It was actually refreshing to be at a lovely restaurant with friends while cursing up a blue streak, and loudly, too. No one complained.

RandomAnthony | 14537 comments I think I saw Grey Papaya on Anthony Bourdain once...welcome back, Gus!

Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments That brunch sounds fantastic, Gus! And I'm glad you enjoyed your swearing. :)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10826 comments Hey Gus!!!

I hope you gave our buddies BIG hugs and kissies and took lots of pics.

I'm so upset that I don't have travel in my foreseeable future (trying to pay off credit cards, car, and postponing saving for a house). :( I MISS MY FRIENDS!!!

message 11: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10826 comments Gus isn't trying to get to New York in a storm. He IS, however, MIA these days, so I was rather drawn to the "let's talk about him" part of the thread title. :) Maybe he's busy training for a triathalon... or maaaaybe he met Sophia Loren IRL and she was smitten and now she's stalking him so he's trying to lay low... or maaaaybe he's been eaten by a giant gorilla-headed, t-rex -teethed, unicorn-tailed monster. Discuss.

janine | 7715 comments maybe he met jackie.

message 13: by Jammies (new)

Jammies Or maybe he and other mice and some birds are desperately trying to renovate a dress for a deserving kitchen girl who wants to go to the ball.

message 14: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10826 comments Oh! I love that reference, Jammies!!! When I was a kid, I could talk like Gus the mouse and quote him on cue. :)

message 15: by Jammies (new)

Jammies Okay, now I want to hear you do the chuckle!

I just did it!

message 17: by Jammies (new)

Jammies But I didn't get to hear it! :(

message 18: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) Or maybe I've just been pretty busy these days.

Can I change this thread title to something about RA?

message 20: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17365 comments Mod
I just realized this was RA's thread to begin with. Nevermind me.

But I want to discuss RA while he's under the dental knife this morning.

What do you all think he'll eat to recover? What would you bring him to wish him well if you lived in rural Wisconsin or wherever he is?
Do you think he'll develop dry sockets?

What do you think he'd say if one of his sons were to videotape him in the car as they drove him home from the procedure?

And most importantly, will he take a bath this evening?

It'd be hilarious if M recorded and posted a David after the Dentist type video on youtube of RA after Wisdom Teeth Extraction.

I think he'll eat macaroni and cheese... duh. But not until after the anesthetic wears off, otherwise he'll be drooling mac n cheese everywhere (which would also be hilarious).

I don't think he'll bathe tonight. I suspect he'll be sleeping with the dogs, by choice.

message 22: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) THIS IS STILL MY THREAD, DAMMIT!

I would bring him jello and green tea ice cream. Yes, he will develop dry sockets (at first I thought you meant eye sockets and I wondered why dental surgery would cause dry eye sockets).

He will not take a bath this evening, and he won't feel well enough to piss of the porch.

LG always humors me.

message 25: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) A dry socket is the worst. When I had one of my wisdoms out, I got a dry socket. Thought I was gonna die!

Lobstergirl | 24485 comments Mod
I don't remember ever having a dry socket. I vaguely remember wet stuff being packed into the empty holes, I guess that's what prevented the dryness.

message 27: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments never had dry sockets, but the food that piled up in the partly healed holes was annoying. and gross.

Didn't you enjoy that little syringe they gave you to squirt it out with?

janine | 7715 comments they didn't give me one so i had to dig it out using my fingers and tongue :(

Gross. Did anyone talk to you about gargling?

message 31: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments all i was told was not to do it for a few days.
