Lessons learned on my trip

  • Manhattan is awesome.
  • Manhattan's subway system is even awesomer.
  • I can't spell "Manhattan".
  • Layers!
  • Layers are annoying to dress and undress. How do people put up with real winters??
  • I prefer latte over flat white.
  • San Francisco has red light cameras. >_>
  • It's been far too long since I last rode a pushbike.
  • "Scaly" fursuits are rare, and some people are really excited to see them.
  • Having a WHYRLGRYPH at GMAIL account is a great idea and I should've created it years ago!
  • Central Park is awesome in the snow.
  • My ginger cat is definitely a feral kitty who can look after himself. =D
  • I miss my ginger kitty when I'm away.
  • Don't take the US101 if you can avoid it (a lesson that I took way too long to learn).
  • Fondue is great. Chocolate fondue is awesome.
  • Most New Yorkers are apathetic bordering on rude, but a few are really helpful and friendly.
  • Apple Store poses a threat to your wallet.
  • B & H Photo and Video poses an even greater threat to your wallet!
  • B&H Photo is awesome and they have a motorized cart system and they're staffed by helpful and friendly Jews. Plus they're awesome.
  • Further Confusion 2012 will be at the convention centre across the road from the Fairmont.
  • Going to FC next year would be dumb and expensive and eat up more vacation time and Rose won't be there and I'm going to go anyway.
  • Parts of San Francisco smell muddy and weird.
  • Sonoma County is still awesome.
  • I can actually use my G12 camera in manual mode now.
  • G12 has a "magic" button which picks (what it thinks are) correct aperture and speed settings.
  • G12 is firmware-hackable and I need to try it.
  • You're allowed two carry-on items on flights.
  • iPhone 4 is still carrier-locked in the US (grrgrr).
  • My iPhone 3G is painfully slow and needs to be replaced (at some point).
  • Pandora is awesome.
  • Bluetooth headphones are made of win. =D
  • JFK airport is even worse than LAX.
  • Delta is a crappy airline.
  • The Stag's Head is an awesome bar.
  • I'm possibly more of a dork than I realized. >_>
