Waiting for Kinko’s

So we’ve been here in New York for a while now. There’s all sorts of things I’ve only heard about that I’m seeing first-hand. The Ed Sullivan Theater. Flocks of Taxicabs. People fighting over taxicabs. Flocks of pigeons. Lots and lots of Jewish people everywhere. That Brooklyn accent.

Then there’s the things that only happen when an anime con happens in New York. A guy dressed as Wolfwood from Trigun walking down the street in Times Square. That Brooklyn accent singing in Japanese at Karaoke.

Then there’s the other things. The hotel elevators that go so fast that your stomach lurches and your ears pop. Actual weather, not that namby-pamby weather we have in California.

So my job at newsletter has been pretty much as I expected. I’ve finally gotten to the point where I can compose the PageMaker file in conops, then generate a PDF and mail it to Kinko’s from the broadband in my room, then have them deliver it (if I’m lucky.. pick it up if I’m not).

Having a 28.8 dialup shared between all of these laptops is interesting… we can IRC and other low bandwidth things, at least.
