New York in February

Monday, February 19th, 2007

Something i thought i’d never see again. With wind chill, the temperature ranged from 30 to 3 degrees over my stay. Had to whip out the coat that i thought i’d never use again, too.

was it worth it? begrudgingly, i have to say yeah, absolutely. highlights include:

  • finally finished Heat on the plane ride
  • walking around the city for five hours visiting every duane reade, walgreens, and cvs in search of a red gift bag
  • valentine’s day dinner in some random eatery near nyu which brilliantly illustrated my strong belief in not going out on valentine’s day
  • gift exchange
  • jacques torres
  • drinks with sue
  • drinks later that night with jeng
  • dinner with dave, eliza and katie
  • should i mentions the karaoke? i guess i just did.
  • brunch at jane with carmen’s mom
  • dinner at babbo. yum.

Most poignant question of the trip:

jeng: So, where’s the light at the end of the tunnel?

Most interesting statement:

sue: well, you need someone to take care of you when you get old.

So, a great trip from end to end. Thanks to all who had time to play. See you next time!

cliché

if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. well, at least so i’ve heard, lately.

now, by no means do i have to qualifications to crown something cliché, but i think “no wonder that other company is kicking your ass. they realize that all any site should ever have on it is a search box” is getting there.
