I see on the news that there is a transit strike in New York. How is it effecting you guys (like getting to work)?
The short answer is that it takes longer. The long answer is that I have to walk a mile and a half to get to a NY/NJ transit line, that Kate has to take multiple cabs to get to work, and that it's very difficult to visit Benjamin. Don't get me started on the transit union. Those guys are fucking extortionists.

Our team at work had a white elephant gift exchange. My gift went around a few times. I also ended up getting the last gift, Viewiful Joe 2 for the PS2 and a $10 gift card to Fred Myers.
Before the gifts, our team had a potluck lunch. Some good food all around.

This also brings up the actual trip to New York, the city was taking down a building in the downtown area. They can not just blow it up, being downtown and all. They had to take it down by jack hammer and other tool. It good to wake up with the pounding of a jack hammer at 7:30 pm. Of course you don't need to sleep in on a vacation, you need to be up, visit and see the sights.
This is my rave for today.

With our enlarged group (trackers and a non-trackers), we set traps and scouted the northern area. With smoking fires, a group of orcs and goblins showed up. (In the picture, our group is on the left and a small group shows up on the right.)
Three orcs turn and face Gregor (top of the picture) ready to attack him.
Gregor is knocked out by the three orcs. Vaden (lower left of the picture) and another of our party come up behind the orcs and kills one of them and damage the others later.
Making sure Gregor is not killed, we set to kill the other orcs. With the tide changed, the remaining orcs make a run for it (top right of the picture). Vaden follow behind the fleeing the orcs (middle of the picture). Be a little faster on his feet, Vaden is able to kill the orcs. A dead orc is a good orc.
Next installment: The road back home.

The main thing that we did today was to visit The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). The above picture was on the way to the MoMA. Will update with a few camera shots once I get home. For dinner we headed over to Virgil's Real Barbecue, a great place. It was the place Chad and Kate had their first date.
Total distance walked today: 4.7 miles (11878 steps)

After we get to New York, we stand in line to get a taxi (the mini-van type, due to the large number of bags that were brought).
Had diner with my brother, visited with him and called it a night.
Time flies when you set you watch 3 hrs ahead.
