MIK is AFK
Heya, Mik here with a public service announcement. I'm headed off on a bit of a MUCH NEEDED vacation with the fam to the big apple. It should be a lot of fun, and we'll be staying with my 'retired gamer' buddy and his family. To that end, I see a lot of late night XBox and probably a good dose or two of something like Dominion, I may even take some Song of Blades along, but all that's in addition to the family plans and sightseeing!
I've been up there a few times, so I've got most of the 'tourist' stuff out of the way (including a tour to the top of one of the trade towers in the late nineties) but we still have some "core" stuff lined up; Times Square, Central Park, the all-Peanut Butter restaurant, Broadway Show, Museum of Natural History, the GW store, a cool anime/toy store in China Town, the big ole Toys R Us, Carnegie Deli, the list goes on and on. Sadly, my daughter is somewhat apprehensive about Times Square because of the failed car-bomb attempt not too long ago. It sucks that seven year olds are even thinking about such things, that's the new culture I guess.
Don't worry, I've got the blog here queued up and good to go for the next week or so. The only catch is that I'm not going to be quite as attentive as I usually am. I'll reply to comments as time allows, or just do them all at once when I get back, keep 'em coming though! As the title states "I'll be back". I don't know how much free time I'll have, but if any readers are in the neighborhood, email me and we'll try to go grab a pint one evening. Rock on...
