Hi all. I'm back from New York city. I regret that I was far too disorganized to hook up with various friends I know in the area while I was there. However, I did manage to spend lots of time with my sister and my new niece, sample a wide range of the theater scene by seeing both Women Beware Women
(a Jacobean tragicomedy) and Spamalot
, and visit the largest used bookstore in the city.
I also managed to be stricken by a rather nasty stomach virus after checking in for my flight home at JFK airport, which resulted in us postponing our flight home by a day. I'm very grateful to JetBlue for rebooking us without hassle and for not losing our checked luggage, which went on to San Jose on our original flight and was waiting for us when we arrived. (Actually, I have to say that of all the airlines that I've flown long distances on in the past year or so, JetBlue was far and away the most pleasant. It's a pity that the only place they fly to out of the Bay Area is New York, though I expect I'll be visiting New York a lot in the near future.)
Anyway, I'm up stupidly early this morning because I forgot to reset my watch from New York time, and thought I'd slept in until after 11. Duh. Today's agenda is to do laundry and finish recuperating from the stomach virus.
Happy new year, all!
