Barefoot in Central Park...

Postby Rob » Fri Aug 04, 2006 12:09 pm

Keith, Jessica, Aaron and myself had ourselves a mini-meetup in Central Park last night for the New Pornographers show. It's over in the things i heart thread, but for the sake of posterity, thought I'd throw the link in over here!

Ah! This was a fun little trip. I kept waiting to post about it untill I had the pics uploaded, but I'm so slow at stuff like that I'll just post now, hopefully add pictures later.

New York was a great city, and Rob was a great guide. So nice of him to take the time to show us around. It was exciting for me to meet my first Pattynetter in person. I find as much as I like people online, I find more great things to love about them in person.

I really enjoyed visiting museums. Rob had insider information for us at the Met, as he had worked or volunteered there in the past. I had no idea there were so many Egyptian artifacts there, along with a gazillion other things. We also visited the Natural History Museum and the Cooper-Hewitt design museum. Rob also showed us around Chinatown and down to ground zero. It is surreal to see something like that.

Being in NYC during a heat wave- whew! I understand it gets up to 130 in some spots of the subway, and I believe it. I'm sure I felt 120.

The Sleater-Kinney concert was so satisfying for me. It was packed, and it was hot, but so worth it. They really kicked out those songs with passion. They must keep going! Carrie in particular seemed to just be so happy and into it. They all sounded good. And yes, the Margaritas we had before the show were the strongest margaritas I've ever had away from my kitchen. Really did their job.

The New Pornographers were also fun to see. And Keith! I was glad to meet him, such a nice guy. Yes, I was sad to not have Neko there, but really, Katherine did a good job. I did find that I sang along to the Neko parts, which I really wouldn't have done if SHE had been singing them, heh.

I wish we could have met Arlene, timing and fate did not cooperate, but I'll come back. NY is a fun city, and it was pretty comfortable.

I just had a memory from the Sleater-Kinney concert.

Aaron poured water from a water bottle down my neck, but it took at least two seconds for me to register the fact that he had, because the water was heated from the room, and my back was already so wet. Hehe, miserably hot, but memories are fun.
