Note to self: seriously, dude. If you want to see the sights, go in any other month than December. Good God! It was almost literally wall-to-wall people. And that was just on the street! Forget about going into Macys!
Sharon and I broke away from the shopping crowd (girlies – we have Old Navy and Macys right here in NoVA!!) and just wandered the streets. The weather was brisk but nice and we had a good time despite the throngs of people. I’m glad we live in driving distance to NYC and it’s great to visit.
We got to see Times Square, 42nd and Broadway, Rockefeller Center and other touristy places. But for those prone to panic attacks in chaotic situations (not that *I* am, mind you!), go another month, any other month. Even NYE in Times Square is bound to be less spastic. For real.
I loves me some goddaughter. Why? As we are driving to the city, I spied a parade float or something like that and on the side was written “Happy Holiday’s”. AACK! Just as I was thinking “What is wrong with these people?” she pipes up from 2 seats behind me saying “That apostrophe is in the wrong place!” Ah! A girl after my own heart. Nothing agitates me more (well, almost nothing) than incorrect apostrophes in signage. (Anal much, Lisa?)
Anyway, I think we walked about 100 miles (La’s pedometer said 3.8 or something lame like that) yesterday so I was POOOOPED today. Too much exercise for this chick.
BTW, I suspect we haven’t seen the last of The Hooty Chronicles(tm) because I was talking to Rich today on IM and man oh man is he pissed at her. It’s a long drawn out story but suffice it to say there are NO issues with his Third Chakra and Ms. Hootenany will be bearing the brunt of his wrath tomorrow. Dammit! I won’t be there either. I shall have to report to you all second hand.
Last episode of The Sopranos this evening. It’s been basically a “EH” season with the exception of the “Bring me the head of Joey Pants” ep and “Mafia drug interventions” ep. I still love James Gandolfini though. He’s da man!!
