NYC: Sat: arriving & exploring

My first day in NYC - yay! I'm borrowing Dad's laptop, which is interesting to type with. Pretty cool though! No photos until I get back (I forgot to bring the FTP info) but hopefully I'll be able to journal along the way instead of my usual paper-journal-I-have-to-transcribe-when-I-get-home.

Despite getting away late this morning (mostly my fault, I swear I hit every red light running the critical errands I had to do this am) we made good time on the drive up. At least that is what I'm told, I slept most of the trip, which was good. I needed it, I've been staying up late spending time with Casey and beading every night this week. I felt much better after my nap, that is for sure!

We found our hotel, checked in, settled in a bit and then went out for something to eat. We are staying in Manhattan, near Madison Square Garden and more importantly near the Fashion District. That worked out well! The room is nice, if small. It's like the places I've stayed in London, only with Mom's 34,000 suitcases/bags. I love Mom but she really doesn't know how to pack lite! *rolls eyes*

We had dinner at an Irish pub, very good especially the Bass on tap. After that we decided to walk to do some exploring and wondered up to Times Square. I would have liked to do some more exploring the area but we got to the building with the News Years ball, took a few tourist pics and Mom wanted to turn back so we did. It was fun though. We walked down part of 42nd Street which was crazy busy. People watching is so much fun here. :>

The rest of the evening has been spent relaxing, showering and watching TV. I don't even know the last time I watched TV (we only watch DVDs at home) - I'm finding I don't really miss it, commercials particularly. Well, off to bed. Tomorrow is the Met - I can't wait!!

NYC: Sunday:
