Ice, Ice, Ouch!
Midterms: check. October break: check. So life has been a bit busy, okay super busy, so that’s why you need October break (sadly I am now back at school wondering how the time went by so quickly)! I took Metro North down to New York City and before I could take a breath I was sitting second row in Madison Square Garden at a Rangers vs. Devils game.
I don’t pretend to know anything about hockey but when Victor said he had tickets I said why not? So turns out when you see them violently smashing each other against the high-grade plastic on TV it is nothing compared to actually being there (did you know helmets weren’t always required?!?).
The Rangers didn’t win but it was a fun experience. I’m still a bit confused by hockey. With most sports you can make a blanket stereotype statement as to the kinds of people that attend them, but with hockey I’m not quite sure what that is.
On Saturday we spent some time walking around the East Village. We went to Butter Lane and bought some gourmet cupcakes (I love that everywhere you go now you can get seasonal pumpkin flavor). We walked by an empty lot that had a fence with some barbed wire up. Someone had decided to decorate the wire:
We strolled around for awhile but it was raining on and off. This was a nice small park:
I really just liked the fact that this building had a huge clock:
I guess New Yorkers will do anything for a hot dog (even sit in the rain):
But, then again, who am I to judge? I would do just about anything for a macaron.
Becca and I went to Dean and Deluca and I was surprised to find some macarons. They weren’t the greatest things I had ever tried (I was underwhelmed with the pistachio and vanilla) but the raspberry was quite nice.
Well now I am back in a grey and rainy Conneticut and I have class again tomorrow. Hope it’s sunny in your part of the woods.
