Yesterday after work (6:00 PM) I met some associates at Park Bar to say farewell to a coleague. I ordered a Stella and chatted with a friend who had at one time sent her kids to the Little Red Schoolhouse. We talked about the famous people who's children go there. I finished my always refreshing Stella, and left. It was 6:30, and I wanted to catch the 7:20 commuter bus, but I had to stop at Duggal on 23rd to drop off some film, so I decided to walk to the 41st street bus terminal. After I left Duggal, I proceeded west down 23rd and I bumped into my sister-in-law's sister who was in the middle of a conference call on her cell (damn clients always find you), she signaled for the Stop and Chat so while she finished up I bought a Gatorade and a pack of Parliament at the newspaper stand. "How was the beach", "Lot's of naps", "Naps rule", "Gotta run". Total encounter time; 3 minutes. Very New York. I'm off up 7th avenue. I passed Madison Square Garden, the site of this years Republican National Convention, where the transformation is almost complete, I think the Death Star will be ready before The Rebels attack. Then I bumped into Justin from WWIX , we briefly caught up, phone calls were promised. Justin was in the middle of a common New York dilema. He had a party to go to in Manhattan later, but he lives in Brooklyn. "Should I go home, or to a movie?" I suggested "Maria Full Of Grace" which is playing at Lanmark Sunshine Cinema, and told Justin that I had to run. It was now 7:07. I had roughly fifteen minutes, time to fast walk. It's all about pedestrian management. You have to look a half block ahead and see the feild, watch for the holes. As I made my way up the escalator at the bus terminal I could hear a song I recognised. The guy at the coffee stand on the second floor was blasting "Starbreaker" by Judas Priest, a good omen. I looked up at the clock, 7:14, I'm going to make it. As I got to the platform, the Red And Tan was just pulling up.

AH HA! You've figured out how to do links in your blogs. Shoot me an email with some quick instructions on how to do it when you get a chance...
