Yesterday’s post must have helped because, well, here I am. I am still crushing on NYC and am scheming to make it an annual trip. My latest, greatest cost justification is that the trip is cheaper than the insurance on Glenn’s motorcycle for a year. Good one, right? Thank you, thank you. When it comes to matters of creative financial expenditures, I am a whiz. Too bad you can’t make any money with that gift! Ah, the irony.
The following photo was taken from Madison Square Park, just past the Buckyball. We had spent the morning walking from our hotel to the Plaza through Central Park to the Met. We lingered awhile in the Met, catching a cab after to take us to Max Brenner for lunch and chocolate fondue. Yum. The neighbourhood was new to me and ripe for shopping (mis)adventures. In our post-chocolate comas, we stumbled upon ABC Home. Pretty sure I actually heard angels sing and the flamboyant greeter literally made our day. He was so sweet and just as excited as we were to be there. When he said there were five – count them… five! – more floors to enjoy, we wept tears of joy. Okay, on the inside – where it counts!
Shopping lasted as long as our chocolate buzz and then we were, thankfully, unable to find a taxi willing to take us to Times Square during rush hour. I say thankfully because we were able to discover more delights. Madison Square Park is lovely and the Buckyball was uber-cool. We did manage to find a cab several blocks past the park that dropped us at the tkts booth where we scooped tickets to “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” with Scarlett Johansson – which was awesome. She was beyond captivating.
Whether I make it back this Christmas or not, I will go again. Of this I am sure. Have a great day and fantastic weekend! Love up your people!!!
