Ummmmm...no. But I walk six blocks from the train to my office and the cabs do NOT stop at corners, blow red lights, etc. It's like taking your life in your own hand. And when I do have to take a cab from the office to my bosses apartment, I am petrified being in a cab with the morons who drive them.

Sorry for the delay in posting another update Rosie. A couple of reasons why -- my photopass deadline in fast approaching, so I've been trying to work on the edits of those in my free time (you probably know how insufferably s-l-o-w that photopass website is ); also, we've been hosting a short-term (3 week) French exchange student so have been trying to get her around to visit different things in the area.

If you give me your schedule I'll be sure to post while you're at work.

I don't think I've ever seen it where they've kind of "changed him up" from how you normally see im.

I think they got a great room, at a great location in the city. I don't think they really used the kitchenette much, but that's okay.

If you know you don't like the curry, then yeah, you might not like some of it. Maybe try tandoori chicken though, it's completely different than a curry.

She absolutely loved it. I'm surprised she didn't come home with the soundtrack.

I figured that you and a few other New Yorkers on here would love reading this….it’s always such a neat perspective to hear someone describe their first impressions of something you’re used to everyday.

Yes, several people commented. I knew who it was but liked the way she wrote it, from the perspective of someone who didn’t expect to see that.

I didn’t know there was a Naked Indian, but since reading your post I just saw him on TMZ the other day….apparently he and Naked Cowboy aren’t getting along. One or the other of them has said that the other is “just out for publicity”. Ah, duh.

They loved Wicked, and loved the hotel, especially the location so that they could get all over that city in the short time they spent there.

Bicki! I’m glad you’re back, and have joined the thread!

Thanks. I haven’t taken the train but when I was looking at the stops I was afraid they might get confused…I wasn’t sure how obvious it would be when they were riding it.

Wow, in the movie huh? I’ll tell them. They really enjoyed that meal, I’ve heard about it a few times since.

Aw, how sweet. (Referring to the proposal, not the rent-a-bike people comment. As if there could be confusion there.)

No, they didn’t get to the Disney Store. Okay, next time.

I agree. A little freaky. Somebody else mentioned that they hit you up for tips if you get your picture with them, I didn’t realize that. Guess I’m naďve.

I know what you mean about attractions that are nearby, but you never get to. So, you’re just going to have to schedule it.

Thank you. Yep, keep an eye out!

Okay, I see. So you have to be aware of your surroundings and ready to jump, dash, or dodge. Be careful!

Off-Topic: Longwood Gardens pictures

We went to a nearby local attraction, Longwood Gardens, a few days ago and I took some pictures on my iPhone. I played around with them on Instagram, put them into a couple of collage's and....I think they turned out pretty nice. Thought you'd like to see.

Hey wait, thought I was already on the board before this for a bonus point or something............

BTW, I especially like the close ups of the lily pads and the flowers, especially the one on the right..........
