New York weekend, day 2

[Written on November 13, 2007] I was up early, 5 AM, and couldn’t really sleep thereafter. Norm and Vicky had some early errands to run and so I was up to see them off and say goodbye. I’d said goodbye to them the night before, and I would say goodbye to them one more time, […]

Back to work

I was up at about 7:30 AM and headed for the train station at 8:15, after saying goodbye to Jen (Jason had already left). They are coming down to D.C. on Friday so I will see them soon. I had to wait for 3 crowded #4 trains before I could squeeze on, but I got […]

A day in the city

Jason left before 5 AM this morning to head to a NASCAR-thing that one of his client’s was sponsoring. Still, Jen and I were up pretty early and headed out for a walk in the park. We stopped to watch a few innings of a little league game, and then meandered through the park until […]

Dinner and dessert, NYC-style

When I got to Jen and Jason’s the apartment was already filled with the smell of cooking. Jen was making dinner and it was worth the wait (we watched the Yankees game while we waited. When dinner was served, it was delicious. he11o_sunshine will have to describe exactly what she did, but she made a […]

Acela First Class lounge

I was able to use one of my free upgrade to upgrade to Acela First Class. I’ve ridden Acela First Class once before, last year and it’s actually pretty nice. Those who’ve ridden the Acela train know that the entire train is business class, and very nice. The advantage of First Class is (a) a […]

Heading to New York!

I was up at 8 AM this morning, and headed to IHOP for breakfast. While there, I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do this weekend. I had fun at happy hour last night, but had no plans this weekend. I wasn’t in the writing mood, and didn’t feel like going to […]

Sunday in New York

I was up at about 8:30 AM and feeling pretty good. I slept well in the hotel room and the skies were bright and clear. I pulled open the shades and Jen and Jason were awake shortly thereafter. We met AJ and Denisse at the hotel restaurant, Olives, for breakfast and the breakfast was quite […]

Rainbow Room Dinner 2007

Rainbow Room 2007 Originally uploaded by jamietr. The eight of us (AJ, Denisse, Jen, Jason, Kevin, Vicky, Norm, and myself) all met the W at Union Square around 6:30 PM and after checking into our rooms, decided to head straight to the restaurant because the bar at the hotel was packed. So we packed into […]

Workout #71 (Arms & shoulders)

I headed to the NYSC with Jason this morning at about 8:30, determined to get in a workout and determined to work out some of this cold. I did my usual 5 minute workout and then headed to the free weight room to do my workout.

An early start

I woke up just after 5 AM, once again feeling a little feverish. I took some Advil. But I wasn’t tired and I didn’t even try going back to sleep. I browsed online for a while, killing time. I noticed this morning that I have a few more regular cold symptoms. So maybe it’s just […]

Ground-stoppage, redux

Our plane pulled away from the gate on time last night at Dulles. The pilot said wheels-up to wheel-down time to La Guardia was 39 minutes. We taxied toward the runway and as soon as I heard the engines spin down, I knew what was going on: another ground-stoppage in La Guardia. This happened the […]

Heading to NYC

I’m feeling better. Not 100% but no fever. I got a haircut. I’ve done the laundry, gassed up the car, cleaned up the house. I had a phone meeting with my new accountant today. She’s going to prepare my taxes this year. Nothing new or complicated, but maybe I can write off some writing expenses […]
