Safe & enjoying the Big Apple!

Posted: Monday, October 13, 2008 by Travis Cody in

Hey gang!

So I'm here in New York...just a bit punchy because I haven't slept more than a couple hours in the last 36.

My hotel is a block past Ground Zero. I can see one entrance to the construction site on West Street. This evening I walked back from the office, past Battery Park, and saw the Sphere. I took a picture from across the street and plan to go over and pay my respects. This is a picture I found on Google images.

When we drove in from the airport Sunday night, I was turned around a bit and not exactly sure where I was. But as soon as we got close, I could feel it.

So yeah.

I missed Manic Monday today.

Hurrah for my Dodgers who picked up a win yesterday, 7-2 in Game 3 of the NLCS against Philly. Game 4 is tonight...of course it's opposite Monday Night Football.

And Dancing!

Have no fear! I shall have a Dancing review for you! The results post is in doubt at the moment because I have a work thing tomorrow evening, so we'll have to see how that goes. But you shall have my thoughts on our dancers this week.

Later babies!

    Damn! New York City. Stay out of trouble will you? It's not as nice or exciting as Detroit, mind you...

  1. Somehow I missed that you were going to NYC. Have a great trip. I've photographed that Sphere.

    have a great time! We just put my BIL on a plane back to NY. He lives in Harlem. Say hello if you run in to him. :)

    Dancing was good tonight. I think we're gonna say goodbye to Rocco though.

  1. Oh my gentle Jebus. What have they done to Bohemian Like You?!! I swear the band is on a mission to make my cranium explode!

    Hope you can mix some pleasure in along with the business. Safe travels my friend.

    Start Spreadin' the news...

    I hope you have a BLAST in New York!!!! I didn't realize that you were going THERE for your business trip (hmmmm, you either didn't say or I am reading too lightly again). You traveled across the bloomin country - no wonder you are feeling punchy.

    Be safe, eat something fabulous, and have a great time. Stars will wait til you are done painting the town red. And if you are just stuck in boring business meetings with no town painting, please don't tell me. I am living vicariously through you right now.

    (Can you tell that the one and only trip that I took to New York was strictly pleasure/no business and I had a ball?)

  1. Linda says:

    You're just down the road from me in New York City and I didn't know this?!? Damn, we coulda met up for bagels and lox! Or something a little more appetizing!

  1. Julie says:

    Wow...I googled The Sphere and read up on it. Saw pictures before the attack too. I didn't know anything about this piece and how it withstood that day....barely bruised.

  1. Dana says:

    We'll forgive you...have a great time!
