My Ipod was stolen.

But fortunately I knew the bastard that took it and my seven roommates and I cornered the fool and the people he was with in their hotel room and wouldn’t let anyone leave until he handed it over. Fifteen minutes later and one mention of the word "cops" and he suddenly "found it".  Everyone who knows me knows that I love my Ipod… so this guy was out of his mind.  Thanks to my friends for helping me out on that one.  It could of gotten ugly.

With that one black mark aside, the week was great.  For those that don’t know much about Wildwood, it is a ocean-side vacation town in New Jersey with a huge boardwalk, tons of little shops, plenty of "dollar-a-slice" pizza places (my primary source of food for the week), amusement parks, and a nice beach.  I learned that it’s a hot-spot for Canadians, Russians, Bulgarians, and people from Philadelphia.  I’m sure most people don’t think of New Jersey when they want to go on a vacation, but if your a college student like me, and your looking for an affordable vacation to go on with a bunch of friends, Wildwood is the place to go.

Sunday night, our first night down there, was probably my favorite night of the week.  We all went for a walk on the boardwalk, I played 12 straight wins in beer pong, and hit up some bars with Brooke.  I wanted to have a party so Brooke and I went around asking people if they wanted to come back to hang out with us.  I didn’t think anybody was gonna show but once we got back from the bar the first 3 girls we had talked to showed up and played some beer pong and taught us a few card games.  After a while the three girls and Mickey, Dave, Justin went out to a few more bars.  Since it was Sunday night everything was pretty dead so we decided to go down to the beach for a swim.  The beach patrol caught us swimming and kicked us out.  We didn’t take the guy too seriously so we just thought it was funny that we had almost gotten into trouble.

Wednesday night had to be the second best night.  We started it off like we always did, Dsc02244with some "boardwalking" and beer pong.  At 10:30 we went to the Casba Comedy Club where we saw Angel Salazar who has been in movies like "Scarface" and "Carlito’s Way".  Justin was called a hillbilly, Nick was called the "whitest guy" in the room, and Alexis got a lap dance.  I’m not sure if I ever laughed as hard as I did that night.  After the club we were all feeling really good so we went back, played some more beer pong, and we all went nuts.

The rest of the week was some more of the same.  We spent lots of time on the boardwalk and on the beach.  I went out to the bars a few more times and I met a bunch of people.  Mickey and I ran into the guy from the comedy club almost every night for the rest of the week.  Friday night was the night when I got my Ipod stolen.  I started talking to some people in a room upstairs from me and ended up playing some beer pong with them.  Next thing I know it was gone… and you know the rest. 

Saturday night was another interesting night.  We were all pretty worn down from the rest of the week so we were a little less crazy than we had been.  I was sitting out by the street talking to some people when this kid came by, had a short conversation with me, and then took out some wire cutters, and stole some Russian’s bike.  I felt bad but there was nothing I could do about it.  I’m sure the cops got him anyway.  The next morning we all forced ourselves up, packed up our stuff, and took the 4 hour drive home.  Can’t wait till next year… first week of August if anybody is interested in joining us.
