Back to reality

Well I'm back in New York and reorientating myself to work after a lovely weekend in South Carolina with Catweazle. My return journey was very eventful, plagued by long airport delays, a shaky touch down at Newark - between you and me I think the trainee was at the wheel - and finally, the cherry on the cake, the cab I caught to take me from Penn station to home sweet home was hit by a bus. A bus!!! Yikes!!! Fortunately there were no serious injuries. We were stationary, behind a limo that was blocking the street and waiting to turn onto west 32nd street when...crunch...a bus pulled in, clearly didn't notice the cab and took out the left headlight. I suppose it could have been worse, but my driver was understandably not too happy.

Anyway I shall post on my weekend when Catweazle gets around to sending me copies of the photos, but in the meantime, here's a little Vampire Weekend for your enjoyment. Their self titled CD frequently provided the soundtrack to our romantic mini break. They are playing a free gig in Central Park a week on Saturday, the kick off to the Summerstage season.

Boy, never a dull moment with you - very glad to hear you weren't hurt!

That tune is pretty catchy - and I like the video. Although sitting on top of each other like that must be crazy-uncomfortable, way too close for comfort. I like my space!
