It’s hot in NYC- I may have mentioned that about a thousand times. For anyone who wants to visit NYC- try not to do it in the summer (I know- I know- sometimes it’s the only way you can) because it’s not only hot, it’s humid. Sightseeing and humidity and crowds don’t mix. Also, if you’re visiting- avoid Times Square unless you’re going to the theater. If you really need a candy fix, I recommend going to Hershey…and if you want to shop, the stores in Times Square can be found in any mall in America…But enough with a travel PSA.
Daughter is done with school and is working- there will be more about internship soon.
My life takes on a slightly different pattern in the summer- I spend more time just hanging out, looking for pockets of weather that are not egregious. Also make use of vertical space, ie our building roof deck.
But here’s the very short gist:
What I Read:
- “White Teeth” Zadie Smith (yes- this is one the of books for my daughters summer reading homework
What I Watched:
- “The Incredibles 2”
- “Bao” – the short that is played before Incredibles and is my bet to be nominated for best animated short because it appears Americans don’t understand it, so the academy is sure to take that as a sign of intellectual genius
- “Next Food Network Star”
What I Did:
- NY Mets- Citi Field- Mets beat Pirates (honestly- should have put Met victory as one of the things I was grateful for, as they are few and far between, and I can’t imagine the entire team not being traded…)
And that about wraps up my very quiet week. Here’s to summer and staying cool…
