Good evening folks! I’m here to apologize for the lack of posts the past four days. I’ve been traveling, sick, and celebrating my birthday! This past Saturday Todd and I traveled down to NYC to visit my sister Christine and go for dinner. It was definitely an experience traveling in Manhattan so close to 9/11, with uniformed and plainclothes security present all over the subway and train stations. Not to be deterred, we first met up with Adam Gorsline (of Adam’s Film Friday fame) and had lunch at the Shake Shack. Next, he showed us his new apartment and walked with us down a street fair on 3rd avenue. We then traveled to my mecca, the Strand. Adam, having never been to the Strand before, was throughly impressed with the miles of bookshelves and huge assortment of all things book-related.
Next, we met up with my sister Christine and her fiance Jason and ate at a great tapas restaurant called Boqueria that reminded us a lot of Spain. After that, we went to a bar named Vapiano, where we met the one and only Adam Spunberg! For those of you who don’t know, Adam is an associate editor for the entertainment blog Picktainment, as well as a co-creator of The Hunger Games Fireside Chat. After working with him on numerous projects and being a guest on the Chat, I was so excited to finally meet him!
As for the remainder of the weekend/beginning of the week, I was unfortunately stuck being sick, which has caused me to lose my voice and in general feel pretty dreary. Today however, I am feeling a bit better (hopefully this was because it was my birthday) and had some good food with friends tonight in New Haven. So, stay tuned for your regularly scheduled blogging coming back on-line tomorrow and apologies again for the delay!
