Why do local weather people tell you to wear a coat when it’s cold outside? The temp is in the upper 30s. A sane person would realize that’s a bit chilly and think to him/herself, “I should probably wear a sweater or coat today.” If the temperature wasn’t enough information, a quick trip to the front door would be. You open the door, it’s cold outside, you put on a freaking jacket. It’s not like we’re all living on the 25th floor of a high rise and have a ten minute trip to the outside. This is Houston. We’re very close to the outside here. And we’re not so stupid that we need weather people telling us how to dress.
I heard one of my favorite cheesy songs on the way to work this morning – Emotional Rescue by the Rolling Stones. I’ll be your knight…in shining…ahhhhmor. Fabulous.
I’m planning the NYC trip now. Jet Blue has some terrific prices, though I may go with Continental because of the known. If you’ve flown Jet Blue and have an opinion, please email me or leave a comment. I’ve already booked three nights in a sub-let, so we’ll stay in a hotel only one or two nights. The sub-let should be interesting – it’s a studio that belongs to a theatre artist who’s out of town. That’s all I know at this point. Bit of a gamble, but the price is so right I couldn’t pass it up. Luckily I have friends up there. Just in case the place sucks. Curtis and Nikki, you guys might make some room on your living room floors at the end of March…you never know.
