More New York

I tried putting this post up before. Let's see if it works this time..

Ok, hopefully my brain is working a little better now and I can remember some more of what I have been doing!!

Here it goes:

- Went to the Statue of Liberty. Took a million picutres of her at different angles. Will have to delete them, how boring. Was good though. She is very small.

- Went to the Empire State Building - was a cool view. A guy from the tour proposed to his girlfriend at the top - how tacky is that? Oh, and they xray you before you go in, then they take your picture for 'security purposes', it just so happens that you have to stand infront of this picutre of a miniature Empire State Building. Some say security, I say let's make money.

- Went to Ground Zero. Did not want to go, but it was part of the tour. Of course the Americans have made it into a tourist site. There were people taking photos. I thought that was tacky. Even more tacky than being proposed to on the Empire State Building.

- Went on my Sex and the City tour. I was unfortunately sick so I didn't really enjoy it. All I wanted to do was get off the bus and take some drugs for my cold! I did get a photo on Carrie's steps and also ate the cupcake that I was so exited about. It was worth it. I was so good. I could write more about the cupcake but I know no one will get my excitement. I'll just say this; sweet fluffy goodness.

- Went to Grand Central Station - was very impressive. Then had to catch the subway back to the hotel in peak hour traffic. No wonder New Yorkers scowl. It sucked! I am so au fait with the subway now. Yes, I am feeling pleased with myself.

- Went to Canal St. Was still feeling sick and as it is so hot here at the moment I felt like I was going to faint all the time. Then as I looked at the bags I thought to myself, do I really want to be carrying this for 3.5 months? Hell no. At least my bank account will be thanking me for the small back pack.

- Went to Macy's - was excited to begin with but it just felt like David Jones with an exchange rate.

- Went to a Broadway show. WAS AWESOME. We went and saw Rent and it was just so cool. The crowd starting clapping with the music and getting really into it and then we all stood up at the end. The only downside was that it absolutely pissed down with rain before we started looking for the theatre. Now I mean PISSED down. I have never seen such a downpour in my life. I was drenched when I got to the theatre so I sat there in wet clothes for 2 hours with a cold. Not good, but worth it. Hung around in Times Square after. I love Time Square. I have been there 3 times on this trip and don't think I could get sick of it. Then we went to this 'dive bar' where this horribly fat ugly MARRIED man was sitting there buying this girl drinks who was practically falling over the bar trying to squeeze her clevage at the barman. Honestly, some men are so dumb. After racking up a tab she left the fat guy to pay for it. He then turned to me and said he would buy me my drinks. I said no and he acted all insulted. Hello, the woman he just paid $100 worth of drinks for was flirting with the barman and ignoring him and he acts insulted because I politely say no to him buying me drinks. Dumb ass. Between him and the other barman (not the co flirter) who was really an 'actor/director/writer I had had enough and went home.

Today I am going to that supermarket that I wrote about before to get some lunch and then am heading to 5th Ave for some shopping. Tonight is my last night here and then I am off to London tomorrow. I am not looking forward to another flight. At least this is the last one for a while.

Hope you are all well.

"Now I mean PISSED down. I have never seen such heavy rain in my life." Maybe that's because you've never spent a wet season north of the Tropic of Capricorn..... It doesn't actually rain here in Adelaide does it? More like an annoying drizzle that persists for days like a runny nose in the middle of winter.
