For all of you guys that pinned how close Matt and I are you are right. We are seriously besties (minus you-aDuBs). I cried all the way through that process of him leaving. I’m a big emotional sappy sap and I’m okay with it. In most situations that is.
Oh and because I never actually explained what he was doing up there..The Merchant Marine Academy is not the US Service Academy where they go into the marines. You can go into one of the branches of the military (most go Navy or Air Force) or you can go into the Merchant Marines which work a lot on ships and such.
So after we were kicked off the campus (The campus closed at 1pm to all families) we headed down to New Jersey to see the TLC Cake Boss, Buddy at his bake shop. Well not really because he obviously wouldn’t be there-but we wanted to check out the famous Carlos Bake Shop!
We waited about two hours in line (which apparently isn’t that bad).
While we were in line, a religious group came and started preaching at us and the other 500 people. Apparently, it is quite common because we cannot leave (we are in line). I’m all for freedom of speech, but they were yelling at us for a solid hour. I don’t want to get into a religious debate on my blog, but I’m all for choice and believing in what you want but they were at the point where they were trying to shove their beliefs down people who were uninterested and not amused throats.
I’m so glad my younger brother Steven was able to come on the trip. He wasn’t sure if he would be able too but it made the ride back more fun. During this religious preaching, no one had gone up to get these mans fliers. They had about 1 million and everyone had ignored them. Since my family is full of smart asses, Steven (with my convincing) went and got a flier and tried to have a convo with them! They even stopped talking for about 2 minutes and everyone started cheering.
But then about five minutes later, everyone started cheering again for another reason.
Anywho-that gave us amusement because it isn’t something to get your panties in a bunch about and that made the line go by really quickly. Some people were going a little psycho but I found it hysterical. Then after our two hour wait we got to go into Buddy’s Bakery. He wasn’t there of course, but it was still so crowded ha.
Just so you know-I didn’t take a photo of anything I didn’t sample. All of these were the bomb.com and fueled me for some pretty decent runs. That may or may not have been my dinner last night and tonight too. I think we spent close to 100 dollars there. BAHAHA #lamesaucefatties
So in short. I’m not too sure why I have complained about my last few runs because this is all I have been eating. I was going to post a food blog about my NYC eats…but uh here ya go. 😉
Questions for you:
- 1. Have you ever seen TLC’s Cake Boss?
- 2. Have you ever had an experience with protests and the police getting involved? (That is a pretty bizarre question I guess).
