Always Busy in New York City

Tuesday in the city. Sun was out. Walked over to B&H Photo to buy a camera case for my Canon G12. Felt like I was in Disneyland. So big, so many lines, so many pointers, “This way,” they would say as they point that-a-way.

When I finally found the case I wanted I had to wait on a line. I gave him the case and he handed me a ticket and sent me to the first floor to pay for it. Zig zag to the escalator that took me to the first floor. I waited on the cashier line and when I paid I said, half kidding, “I feel like I’m in Disneyland  (chuckle chuckle.)” She nodded in agreement, chuckled along with me, handed me a receipt, pointed, and said, “Step around the corner and wait on line to pick up your merchandise.” Or did she say — follow the yellow brick road? Whatever. Actually, it wasn’t like Disneyland at all. The lines were short and fast-moving.

Met Hannah in the west 20’s and made a paper exchange — nothing illegal. And Hannah got a free take-out spicy eggplant lunch out of it thanks to mommy. Walked down Eighth Avenue. Had no time to sit down and sit and eat so I bought a banana. Just didn’t feel like eating a banana while walking down the street so I stopped into Pinkberry. Chocolate frozen yogurt with fresh mango — a perfect refreshing lunch.

Walked over to 14th St and saw an apartment that was for sale. Nice apartment. The downside was the price and 14th street. The upside was this:

Afterwards I walked over to Crocodile Lounge and met Rachel for a Bloody Mary and a few bites of a mini pizza. I mentioned the apartment building a few doors down. And she said she knew which one it was. “Oh, you mean, the one with the pee sign?“Yes,” I said. “I love that sign I took pictures of it,” she squeals. “Me, toooooo!” I squeal back.

Toilet Paper, Red Dress, Battery, Gummi Vitamins

These are a few of my favorite things. No, wait, I’ve got it all wrong — these are a few of the items we are packing to bring to the girls in the city today. Maybe I’ll throw in some paper towels too. Already gave the Indian soup packets last week, along with lots of leftovers.

Our Passover leftovers are gone. The only thing left is the fresh white horseradish that I made. I wanted to give some out as goodie jars for Passover but I forgot — It’s always something! Mmmm, plenty of Bloody Marys in our future!

Fell asleep through most of Resident Evil: Afterlife — at least Drew said I did. I thought I saw plenty but, regardless, it was a good nap. What do you expect after a bottle of wine. (Afghan restaurant was BYOB — a definite plus!)

Movie over, Drew has the remote and flips, flips, flips, or should I be saying surfs? Is he channel surfing or flipping the channels? Ended up watching 12 Monkeys (again). Probably the next time I watch it I will remember the ending.

Off to the city soon and probably will be too tired to write anything later.

Today: Family day in the city.

Hannah just texted me: I recommend you come in early and walk around. It’s so nice out.

My response: It’s hot. (Yes, already complaining about the heat.)

Tomorrow: Read my in-depth review of The Book of Mormon.
