It's not like I can have it shipped. In Canadaland, cars are like 15% more expensive MSRP wise and the tax here is a fantastic 12%.

trying to figure things out with my overlord, Pokerstars.
My exams finish on Tuesday so it'll be 3 weeks of time to try and fit some snowy NYC Christmas festivities in there. I've been looking at too many menus lately

Le Bernadin, Daniel's, Le Cirque, and Jean Georges. I might as well go for the best since I won't be there for too long due to the lack of hockey.

There are no good Michelin Star restaurants here in Vancouver so I try to go to them in cities good enough to house em. There are only seven 3 Michelin Star restaurants in the US and I think 5 of them are in NY. 3 of the 4 listed there are 3 starred. Stoked to go with people in the future... I'm not sure when that will be but there's lots of time nobody's going anywhere.

I've been to Le Bernadin before and a few other 2 Michelin and 1 MS restaurants. 3 stars restaurants are rare. 2 and 1 MS restaurants are more abundant although I'd say there are 40 in the US at the most. The amount of restaurants who do a good job and is pursuing a Michelin Star are everywhere nowadays.

wow lucky, I would imagine that it must be pretty good to get such an honor. The best restaurant I was able to go to was Peter Leuger's and it was a steakhouse. Not saying it was bad though haha

Fanciest restaurant I've been to was some place in Pennsylvania and it sucked. Best food I had was in this tiny place named the anchor bar.

high end gone wrong is so bad as it can get. It's like a bad trip. A good trip is good. A bad trip is bad. So little that separates them before it all starts but once it starts, you can't go back...

high end gone wrong is truly one of the worst experiences ever. It's like going to Disneyland and finding out you're not tall enough for the rides and then getting hit by a truck, driven by Bob Richards and be left with the mystery of why BR would do such a thing as you lay dying.

Needles are scary. Improper techniques are scary. Potentially unhygienic processes are scary.

Do people have to be checked for STDs? Or do they test the blood after?

Aren't you always saying that you're so small and scrawny? Maybe keep some more blood in you

I have no STDs. Anyway, I feel good about this, I'm on my friend's list if the need comes up. I have O blood so either if it's + or -, it's useful too.
