I’m not leaving today – next week actually. I bought my train ticket for NYC tonight. I am going next weekend for 4 days and I could not be more excited. It is my Congratulations on My Divorce/Happy Birthday to Me trip.
On the agenda: a little U2 stalking, a little X-File watching, a Halloween party where I will dress up for the first time in forever as a Bon Temps barmaid, and plenty of hanging out with friends.
It is also exciting because there will be plenty of times I will need to get around the city on my own. I know it may sound crazy to some but I have hardly ever been to NYC by myself so this should be interesting. I either go with my mom who went to school there, or people who live there so I just follow them. I figure with the iPhone – GPS, phone, internet, texting – it shouldn’t be that hard.
I’m always terrible when I go to the city though – I get there and there are millions of things to do and then I can’t think of anything I want to do or see! It is like an embarassment of riches and I space out. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas – bring ’em! I’d love to take better advantage of being in my birth city for a few days.
