Long Awaited Pictures…

Well, I got the call this afternoon that our apartment applications seem to be in order and we’ll be signing the lease soon. I thought I would take this opportunity to share some images of my soon-to-be new neighborhood:

My block
Another view of the corner – great cafe on the ground level
I love all the community gardens in this area – this one is on my blockAnother community garden on my block
And here’s my building! Cool restaurant on the bottom floorJust a couple blocks East, the East River Park
I found this beautiful garden just a block away from the apartment
NY Public Library Branch across from Tompkins Square Park
And lastly, spotted this fabric store a few blocks down our street

Okay, I’m off to the first rehearsal of “Nudists in Love!”

Have I Told You Lately

That I love you? For reading this blog, that is. The funny thing about my page is the counter at the bottom. I think it’s past 1000 hits now… but I guarantee you that at least 300 of them were from me – because that’s how I link on to see and work on the page… probably 3-400 were my Mom… a couple hundred from Oma/Opa… and some honorary hits to other friends who I harass to read the blog and make comments. (Sidenote: I invented a word: comments on blogs = blogments.) If my page was only tracking unique hits, the number would probably be more like 18 or so. Maybe I’m wrong but probably not. So… what have I been up to lately? LOTS. Living and loving this city, basically. I have gotten way way way into my improv school, Upright Citizens Brigade (check out yesterday’s article in the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/28/nyregion/thecity/28come.html?_r=1&oref=slogin.) I apologize… I haven’t learned how to successfully and easily add links into blogs. Feel free to blogment or blogscold me. The people in my class at UCB are amazingly brilliant and hilarious… we are all amazed at how well we get along, and frequently are commenting that we all remind each other of our friends from college. Tonight I went to a show at the UCB theater with some friends from the class – and I can’t complain about the $2 PBRs at the show! In other news, I have been attending as many dance classes as possible… though I’m not always the brightest star in the room (aka never). Tonight we did a dance from “Cats,” which was fun, but I looked like a feral amputee or something. On a totaly unrelated note… do you watch Lost? Because I just finished season 3 and ohmygodicantbelievehowgoodthatfreakingshowis! That’s really the reason I haven’t updated this page in so long (I know, pathetic). Hey, I had my first true NY celeb siting yesterday (I am not counting the not-quite-sure if that was Roger Bart running around the Jackie-O reservoir)… I saw Jeremy Sisto of Six Feet Under, Law & Order, and of course – Clueless! “Rollin’ with my homies…” I was downtown exploring the East Village after a failed attempt at Trader Joe’s, and nearly ran into him with a dumbfounded look on my face! So great. Okay… this entry is completely A.D.D… it’s time for bed.
