It's a Hell of a Town

So I just got back from NYC (ok ok so I really got back a week ago but if it's not already obvious I'm kind of lazy...) and it lucks like my Timeline of Suck has officially come to an end. Yipee! I didn't take my camera (read: I can't find my camera) but maybe I can pilfer some photos from my vacation buddies for a later post.

I know hearing about other people's vacations can often be boring so I'll try not to ramble on this one ;)
New York was awesome, as expected. We did less of the touristy thing and more of the just walking around checking out whatever came across our path thing. I didn't see The Daily Show (sorry Ben) but I did wander around the NBC studios trying to hunt down a bathroom. The Ground Zero museum they have going is heartbreaking but beautiful. I want the East Village happy hours down here! The Stonewall Inn was fabulous and the mystery shot the bartender whipped up for me and a friend was delicious. While my vacation mates went to see a Broadway Show, I checked out the NYC Halloween Alleycat race... I still find guys with tattoos on bicycles to be just about the sexiest thing ever. Drool. Why do I have to live in a city with such abysmal public transportation? And I totally need to get me one of those hard cases you can put bikes in to fly with them so the next time I go somewhere I can get around at my own speed. Anything you peeps want to hear about the trip?

Oh, and I also finally got a new car. I'll procur a batch of internet cookies for anyone who can actually guess what my new wheels are. :)


  1. ha, that's actually a decent guess, but no I'm not driving a woody.

  2. Is it some sort of station wagon?

  3. Just guessing things that can fit a bike in the back.

  4. It's station wagonish, just quite a but smaller. It can still fit a bike in the back which was my main consideration. Since everyone else is being party poopers and not trying to guess, here's my new baby: http://tinyurl.com/yabebtx

  5. Very cool. I did not imagine a bike could fit in the back of a mini. One of the trombonists has one, and he loves it.

    I only look at cars that will fit a sousaphone in the back.

    Unfortunately, that means I will never own a small, sporty car. And when I get a tuba, well... I have few options other than a station wagon or an SUV. (and not all station wagons and SUVs work right now)
