I landed in JFK and then ha to wait for the Super Shuttle. Seriously, waiting for the shuttle and it dropping me at the hotel in Times Square took longer than the flight from Durham to NY. Since I'd woken up at 4:30 that morning I was a little cranky by the time I met Kevin. To appease me and alleviate some of the cranky, he took me to the diamond district.
Sigh, the light posts are shaped like diamonds...
Yes, I did come home with something sparkly. We got my engagement ring there and were never able to find a wedding band to match. I'd been wearing faux diamond band for the past 2.5 years while we looked for something to match. I guess I just had to make a trip back to the city!
So, we walked around all day Saturday, took some of Kev's students to Canal St. and showed them how to get in the back rooms for knock off handbags. We also taught them how to negotiate and never take the first price. Grin..
Then off to dinner with friends and a show!
OMG, the show almost made me p my pants. If you aren't familiar with the show, imagine a raunchy Sesame Street complete with puppets. I knew the music, but was SO much better in person. Let me tell you, that was a LONG day. 430am to 1030p. complete with walking, flying, busing, eating, show... so sleepy in the end..
