Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

"But what will you DO there?"

Two different people asked me that yesterday... and not in a "What are your plans?" way.

Because, you know, it's so hard to find things to do in New York City.

A few colleagues were baffled that I'd go someplace by myself if not to visit family. New York is a fabulous place to go solo, because there's so much to do. It's so easy to get lost in the whirlwind of it all. So much to see, to soak up.

"It's going to be cold, you know..."

I know. I KNOW. Am I a moron? I know it's still winter! I do cold better than hot. I'm not worried. It won't stop me from doing all that I want to do. (I'm just debating which coat to take: the cuter one or the warmer one. It's a battle of style over practicality.)

I'll get to see some shows, some friends new and old, and hopefully escape from the major stresses of the past few months. Luckily, I'm so exhausted I'll have no trouble hitting the hay at a decent hour, East Coast time, tomorrow night.

And I'm not going anywhere near a computer this week if I can help it, so it will be even quieter than usual around these parts.

See you soon!

Terry, I'm so jealous that you have it in you to go somewhere by yourself. I'm such a chicken even though I think I would love to do just what I want to do and not worry about other people.

Take the warmer coat. Trust me on this one.

Have a fantastic time!!

have a tremendous week! NYC is better a little too cold than a little too warm, if only for the aroma...

i know what you'll be doing - buying me a red pashy scarf!!!
also you'll be shopping for a warmer coat because the cute one you ended up packing isn't warm enough. i'm projecting. but if this happens maybe your new warm coat will be the cutest of all!!

have fun :o)

i think NY is the perfect kind of place to go by yourself! so much to do, and you don't have to worry about someone else keeping up with you or whatever. man, i am jealous. i wanna go so, so bad.

I would give my left nut to go somewhere ALONE... ok so this might not be saying much since "my" left nut isnt attached to my own body *L* but still... I'd give it gladly!
