day trip to New York

Firstly need to tell you about my latest thing ... I have an eye infection, got it on Friday. It is making my left eye and nostril water constantly and the sinuses on left side of my face are soo sore. And now, I think I've got a cold on top of it. My eye is killing me, it's so so sore!!
Ok, so onto the important stuff ....
Yesterday was my day off and I decided to go to New York city for a few hours on the bus that camp provided for whoever wanted to go. Which ended up being 26 people.
We left at 8am and were on our way!
About an hour into the trip, there was a very loud banging noise and it lasted for about 20 seconds, so the driver pulled over and got out, did a walk around the bus, everything was still there, so we took off again. We stopped for a rest a little later at a weird little food court type thing on the side of the freeway where there was a McDonalds, Dunkin' Dougnuts and a few other food places.
About 20 minutes after that, a car pulled up alongside the bus and was pointing to the front tyre, so the driver pulled over again next to an on ramp and called his boss.
We were there for 2 hours, it was a fun 2 hours though for the most part! The Israeli's were not too impressed though, they were very downbeat about the whole thing. All the rest of us (that being about 14) had a great time, we took heaps of photos of the bus, the flat tyre, the driver, us being idiots, the guy who changed the tyre, the new tyre, the state trooper who came to tell us off for being on the side of the road, the guys who pulled over to see if we needed a hand, the guys who pulled over and gave us water. Great times!!!
We finally got to New York and the driver; he was sooo nice, told us we could be there for an extra hour becuase of the delay, so we didn't have to meet the bus til 9pm.
Went to Victorias Secret (SALE), bought phone cards, had lunch at an Irish Pub, went to Virgin Mega store in Times Square and lastly went to M & M's World!!! That is like the coolest shop in New York, I got a green travel mug, scrapbooking M & M's stickers, dark chocolate peanut M&M's and Almond M&M's Megan and I combined our purchases and also got half a pound of normal peanut M&M's for free!!! We got home at 1.15am, we were supposed to be back by 11.30 at the latest. Great day though!!!
Later ...

independance day

Happy July 4th!!
Wow, what a day. Today was supposed to be a carnival at camp, but, it rained, so everthing was moved inside building.
Sideshow games were in Sobel Hall, Rides were in the gym and prizes, cotton candy, soda and sno kones were in the chapel.
The kids were also supposed to be spending half the day at the pool and half at the carnival so everyone had a chance at all the stuff without bigger kids being able to push in front of the smaller kids. No pool because of the rain!
Every morning since I ripped off my toenail I have had to go to the medical centre on camp to get them to put a new dressing on my toe, so they usually wrap it in brown stuff that sticks to only itself and nothing else. Well, this morning they decided to make me patriotic, and wrapped it in red and blue instead of the usual brown!! It was a pity no one can see it because I have to wear shoes and socks all the time.
I bought a new pair of crocs on Saturday my first day off. They are mary janes and pink!! Taryn also has a pair of crocs as well, she got a pair of beach in pink a few weeks back because she was sick of wearing thongs everywhere or having to put on shoes and socks when its easier to just slip on a pair of crocs. We both only paid $30 for them.
This Saturday for my day off I'm going to New York with others from camp. Looking forward to a great day out!!
Better get going, its just stopped raining extrememly hard so I might try to make a break for it and get back to my cabin!!
Later ....
