Seems Like Old Times
My college friend Jacquie is in from Boston and staying with me this weekend. She had business in the city on Thursday and extended her trip so she can hang a bit in the city.

When taking a taxi to my office, she hailed the same driver that she had from the day before and he remembered her and where he dropped her off even. In all my years here I can't recall ever riding in the same taxi, what are the chances even?

We spent the very warm Saturday in Central Park without jackets trying to find the Bethesda Fountain. Eventually we did after going from the east side to the west side and then having to phone a friend to look up the exact location on the Internet. Here's a photo of Jacquie before the fountain and one of me in it (it's empty this time of year).

That night we headed to Canal Room to see Debbie Gibson perform at their I Want My 80s Party. She started off with a bunch of jazzy Broadway hits, which we actually enjoyed a lot, especially the Cabaret song "Maybe this Time." Then she moved onto the pop stuff after a 10 min break. She looked great, very skinny, rocking different wigs & weaves for the different sets and full of energy. We were right next to the stage near a VIP seating area, which during intermission Olympic skater Sarah Hughes came in to sit down at with a group of other girls, apparently it was one of their birthday's. The crowd otherwise consisted of some sketchy people and some Gibson stalkers.

Guest Blogging: I took notes during my office's annual networking event and typed up a recap on their corporate blog, Toasting Digital Defrost: A New York State of Mind

NY News: Littlejohn's blood was found on plastic ties that bound Imette St. Guillen I say we cut off his "little John." The graduate student's murder was horrible and has many of my friends in the city concerned. My mother called me to remind me to not walk home by myself late at night and Jacquie said she was nervous about it this weekend while visiting too.

It's always cool when a friend comes in on business or you get to visit them on a business trip, especially if you get to plan a few extra days catching up.

I have been to that fountain a couple of times but I never new the name. Now you are going to make me pull out my pictures, which will make me want to come back to NYC. Of course, that is never far from my mind.

Glad you had a good time.

Yeah it's a pretty fountain and featured in the films One Fine Day, Ransom and Fools Rush In. Remember, any reason is a good reason to visit NYC! :)

Sounds like y'all had a blast!

I would have been dancing in my seat at that 80's show. I still sing a bit of Debbie Gibson when I get sentimental. *singing* "I get lost, in your eyes.....and I feeeeel my spirits rise."

Gosh that puts me right back on the beach with a jerk named Robbie.
