Let it be known (again) that I have wayward math. Alright, not really but Nach's visit began Tuesday night and continued through Sunday afternoon. I combined Saturday and Sunday because Saturday was a bit of a strange day for food (and by that I mean I really don't have pictures…), while Sunday we said our goodbyes on the streets of Chinatown. It was my last attempt to rid myself of the hipster. And if you are to believe UI, I was successful. UI may be making claims that this current Nach floating around TAY is an imposter, since he, UI was not with Nach during his final hours and I pulled a switcheroo.
Nach came back safe and sound from his Thursday Philly trip, ready to go adventuring some more bright and early on Friday morning. At one point he was trying to suggest that perhaps we could start a little later in the day. Memories of the terrifyingly long day we had on Wednesday had him talking crazy when he uttered that suggestion, but that would mean fewer hours to eat. Weighing the pros and the cons, we set out early once more but it was not early enough…
At Aikage's suggestion, there is a change to the story formally known as "(Foodie) Adventures in How to Ignore a Hipster...". However and despite the header image, this will not be a romantic comedy about canoedling, cup noodling, canoodling, or canned bread..ling(?). I happened to take a picture of some glorious art that day and this is all by chance. None shall sully this thread! I'm looking at you, Aikage and Swan. With that out of the way, I will be continuing the story on how Nach visited NYC and ate himself silly almost all of last week and at the start of this week.
About this time last week, I was probably doing the same thing as I am now. I was probably trying to write a blog post or at the very least, thinking of one. The only difference being that, I was cursing under my breath thinking about how I had to leave the comfort of my house to go to dinner. With a Hipster, no less. That’s the real reason for the cursing… because you know, Dinner is always cool. Hipsters… not so much!

Last year, scouring the main show floor room at NYC’s Comic Con felt like quite the task. DC and Marvel had the biggest booths with Lego smack right in the middle of the two comic giants. Doctor Who paraphernalia was in abundance. Gaming company giants were there too showcasing new games and playable demos, and everything dazzled the senses. Nintendo was there promoting Paper Mario: Sticker Star. And Square Enix also had a sizable booth. It was there along with the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary chocobos and moogles, I saw it. Perched on his shoulder, the ominous black bird stared at me in a familiar fashion and I had to have him... while his glare invoked images of shattered stained glass windows that glistened in my mind and a favourite song began running through my head.
