That's right. The Penguin has made it over. The East Coast will never be the same. I felt right at home. Snow, freezing temperatures and walking coats all over the place; for a second I thought the plane had made a circle and brought me back to my tiny island.
But I am in America, the toilets gave it away. Yes, the toilets! Now explain this to me and do speak slow: Why do you need a swimming pool in your toilets? I am worried that I'll make it overflow each time I have a full bladder. I know all restrooms in the Connecticut area by now!
I have squeezed some other stuff in between toilet breaks though.
Spending time and laughs with Joel, Neva and our lampshade. You do the math! But it involved dogs, Mexican food, Starbucks and the odd ADD conversation I am still trying to organize . Everything you have heard is true. Neva is tall, dark and has a rugged handsomeness about her. G is continiously checking out light bulbs and Joel, well constantly files applications for golf resort memberships.
The Belle of the Brawl flew in during her Spring break. Whohoooo! You'll be glad to learn that we did share a hotel room together and life webcam recordings can be purchased at firstname.lastname@example.org! She is as spunky, funny and amazing as I knew she would be and Sar: Thank You!
I went to a Blue Man concert in Manhattan and had such a fun time. They got up close and personal too, nice physique and well, I left the theatre with a blue mark on the left side of my face. The works of a Blue Man. But not to worry, I can pull off blue quite well!
I got to meet the wonderful and delightful Moa and took the grand tour through her fabulous and artistic home. I specifically had a passion for her handmade marzipan sculptures. She is just the sweetest soul and here is cheers to Heineken too.
Today Al showed us downtown Manhattan. Now he is just gonna love me for this, but whenever you are in New York, go bugger him about a tour...he does is well, knows his stuff and *whispers* didn't ask for any of those really confusing local currency papers;) Besides, his red/green Mohawk sticks out and if you get lost amongst the huge crowd, he is an easy visual marker, if you don't mind the Japanese tourist taking pictures of him all the time.
excuse me...I have to use the bathroom!
