Nope, no matter the programming language or mathspeak, there're still more.

Yeah, she still hasn't learned that yet. She will one of these days.

I had to laugh when I read her narration; I knew who it was. He's been there for a couple decades now, right?

Not sure, I've never been to either of 'em, myself. But I'd bet the Times Square one is bigger.

Fun afternoon with lots of nice sightseeing, a "real" Italian lunch complete with hovering and street heckling.

Sounds about perfect to me.
I think they started off the trip pretty well too.

Actually, when they got back they were very appreciative of it....especially the addresses so that they could tell the cab driver, or punch it into the map app on the iPhone.

Yeah, I couldn't help myself and made a spreadsheet. Hey, it's the way I think!

They didn't ride the ferris wheel...just took a peek and went on their way.

You're right...the planner failed 'em on that one.

Ta da!!!! Correct!

Exactly right. In the picture of her at the table you can see that she's wearing a light blue jacket and has a Vera bag. In the pictures of Lauren at the M&M shop (Judy was obviously taking the picture) you can see the Vera bag in particular, and also make out the light blue jacket, in the reflection below the machine. You can see it the best in the 3rd picture.

Yep-er. I even asked about that one just to be sure. I actually edited the narration just a bit to specify that it was Lauren taking the picture so that it wouldn't be a point of contention.

It might be, I don't know. It made me think of Elf...I think there's a bridge in that one too.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Glenn.


I'm really enjoying the NYC part that Lauren is writing. I would love to just take a seat and watch the hustle and bustle of NYC go by. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the room and what Lauren thought of Wicked.

Another great update by Lauren. As I'm reading it reminds me so much of my daughter Michelle going to New York. She loved Central Park and Times Square too. I have a feeling they will agree on Wicked too.

Finally a

The Vera helped out. The long sleeves took her out of the food picture, the close proximity of the guy took her out of the Bubba Gump picture.

The narration did take her out of the Times Square photo.


Glad I finally made the board.

Great spreadsheets, Glenn.

And what a fun update, Lauren.

Love the pictures at the M&M store (the one in Vegas blew me away and I understand the one in New York is bigger), and the Ferris Wheel at the Toys r Us is very cool.

Well, I'm a few days behind on this update, but Glenn, your spreadsheets once again make my planning efforts seem inadequate.

I've always thought Central Park seems out of place, myself. Seeing that green strip in the middle of all that steel and concrete just seems a bit odd. I guess I've never been there to experience it first hand and see how it all blends together though. Nice commentary about it.
