[General] Life, the Universe and Everything

Have a few things sorted out that take some stress off of me. Have a story that I think is ready for submission, though I'm giving it a few more days before I mail it off.

Next week I leave for New York for the company's annual gathering. As usual, I have a day and a half or so after the company stuff is done to see New York for myself. (I fully intend to spend a decent chunk of that at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in the antiquities collection.) But if anyone else has some ideas for things to see/do, let me know. Also, for friends, if there's something you'd like me to try and pick up for you in New York as a holiday gift, let me know and I'll do my best. I've been so drained lately that holiday gift ideas are just not coming to me so easily this time.

Had lunch with shadowfey and the beast, and caught up on a number of conversation topics with him. In about 45 minutes, I'm going to the stables with my dad and the puppy; time for the puppy to meet the horses and the Evergreen crew, and for dad to finally meet Roman. Plus, there'll be the usual riding demonstrations. I am, as last year, bringing a bushel of apples for the horses as my holiday contribution. :)

New York isn't all that far from Philadelphia.. :)
You do realize you can easily spend an entire day in the Met, don't you? :)

That said, if you don't mind the walk (forget the buses - they're slower than walking this time of the year), you can make your way south and stroll down to the Rockefeller. The various buildings have wondrous architectural details to look over as you walk by. There's some pretty nice window dressings to see along 5th Avenue, and there's also the Cathedral near the Center - fantastic piece of architecture, amazingly huge. Lots of other museums in the area, but the Met can take up a goodly chunk of time by itself.

I'd meet up with you but it's a three-hour drive and forget trying to park in NYC! Maybe another time :)
Call me when you're in the city. We can do lunch or dinner or something. :)
Alan suggests the museum of the history of New York City or the museum of broadcasting.

I want to thank you profusely for recommending La Casa Gelato in Vancouver BC (1033 Venables Street). It was wonderful! 208 flavors, and one of these days I'll actually get up the nerve to try the durian ice cream. I had a basil and Pernod ice cream that was exquisite. I plan on making this a regular stop whenever I'm in the neighborhood. Thanks again!
