  2. Well, when you go to a place with more exhibitionists per square meter than any where else on the east coast, some things are bound to happen.

Either that or buy some good shades...
  3. HAHAAH.. thursday pre-reg line.. the only time me and the few people i come with are together... It is quite entertaining. I normally just have a cup of chilled ramen noodles as i wonder along with the line standers in front of me... if i finish my ramen early i will run back to the hotel and fill a bookbag with snacks for me and my party memebers...

My family can't afforf to hand out cash to me.... but that's okay because I don't want to be a financial burden on anyone.
