Yes, I have free internet access

I'm just about to look for some dinner, but I just wanted to share my day with you all. I had a total Sex and the City moment today. Actually, before I tell you about that I will give you a run down of my shopping day. I ended up walking to 5th Ave from my hotel which is about 30 blocks (pfft, who needs to go to the gym). By the time I got there I was feeling very sweaty and not at all 5th avenuey (Yes, I know that's not a real word) seeing as though there is Gucci, Versace etc stores all along that street. Anyway, I have been trying very very hard to buy some clothes while I have been here but haven't seen anything I like. I have no idea why. I don't know what's wrong with me, I never have this problem at home. In the end, as I am sure you will all be glad to know, I did find something nice, but this is after going into this particular store about 3 times. I also went into Saks 5th Avenue which scared the shit out of me. I went up to the ladies department which ended up being all clothes over $5000. So I pretended I was looking for something (I was wearing my $6 Supre thongs by the way) and then casually went back into the lift and got the hell out of there!!

After that, I went shopping for some souvenirs. Of course as soon as I paid for my over priced fridge magnets it ended up pissing down with rain like it did the night before. Luckily I had my umbrella (thanks Naomi!) but I still got drenched. I tried to take the subway back to the hotel but it was closed because of the rain flooding the tracks. On my 30 block walk back to the hotel in the rain I walked past the Museum of Modern Art (this is my Sex and the City moment by the way = New York, running in the rain and an art gallery - remember that episode??!) and went in. It usually costs $20 to get in but on Friday afternoons it's free. How lucky is that? Anyway, I had a very cultural afternoon looking at some canvases painted completely in blue, and others painted red with one stripe going down the middle. Perhaps I should think about taking up painting?? The best part of the gallery was the photography which was fantastic.

Anyway, I am in the lobby of the hotel at the moment and there is a guy on the computer behind me who just asked me if I was writing the bible. And he's talking to himself now. I really should leave.

Ok, off now to have another New York moment...eating dinner by myself somewhere.

BTW I am off to London tomorrow - hello another 6 hour flight.
