I am on vacation

You would think that because I am on vacation I would have plenty of time to write a long, chatty entry about my recent whirlwind trip to New York (which I always spell Yourk and then have to backspace and fix. It could be worse; I tend to say it Yew Nork). You know what? You would be right. I DO have time to write an entry. I'm on vacation. All I have planned for today is getting my oil changed and seeing if I can find the hot rollers I want at Sally's. Maybe I'll clean something. I could exercise, but I probably won't. I made monkey bread. I didn't set an alarm, and I still got up at 8:30, after an amazingly quick nine hours of sleep. I definitely need more; whirlwind trips to New York don't lend themselves to lots of sleep.

I didn't really take photos. I didn't even bring my camera. My travel companion did, so I can post some pictures after she sends them to me. I took a couple with my camera. I sent this one to Facebook with the caption "Guess where I am." I didn't use a question mark, because that's a directive, people, not a question. Using a question mark would be like telling someone, "Shut up?" when you really mean "SHUT UP!"

Anyway, yes, the picture. We were walking along, and I was like, "Hey! Radio City Music Hall!" We were waiting for the light to change, and it just had, so I got the bus obscuring part of the marquee, which I think I like better than if I had gotten the whole building. I would still like to see the West Side Story revival, especially now that they've gotten rid of the Spanish lyrics in "A Boy Like That." I don't mind them in "I Feel Pretty." It's a simple song, and not really a hard-hitting song. I appreciate that Anita would speak (and sing) to Maria in Spanish, but it's a much more powerful song when people in the audience can actually understand the lyrics. A nice experiment, guys, but thanks for going back to the English.

In conclusion, vacations are awesome.


  1. Um, what? You're in New York??? Can't wait to hear all about it!

  2. I like the picture as it is. You look all artsy now. And have you noticed that every time I write the word "just" I will inevitably misspell it as "jsut?" I have to go back and fix it, but I miss it alot. I'm not even sure I can type that word properly anymore.


Be nice.
