NYC, home away from home.

So I had the best weekend ever.  Friday, I got to leave Poughkeepsie, and go to NYC.  I was reunited with Maria, and we went to go see the Fantastiks.  It was awesome! And even better, we haggled down the prices of birthday presents for Chip at Colony.  It was amazing. All I did was smile, and Ted was just like, "I'm Ted, have a discount of like 35 bucks!" So then we went back to Fridays (our newest tradition) and got our wonderful slushie drinks that we love.  Then, we went to her NYU dorm, and slept in....whoops!  But it all worked our okay, because we got STANDING ROOM TO NEXT TO NORMAL! It was fantastic.  Seriously, I almost died.  Then we took the train to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and got Hungarian Pastry Shop CREAM PUFFS!! Brilliant. 

We rehearsed Earth Mass from 6-9, and I got to see a bunch of my lovies from home, including the ex-.  You'd think after 4 years of friendship/3 years of dating, we could at least manage to be friendly....but he makes everything so super-awkward all the time. GAH! Anyway...the rehearsal was great.  And we all went to V & T Pizza afterwards....wonderful white pizza (another tradition).  And of course, HUNGARIAN PASTRY SHOP for desert.  Then Steve and I went back to Maria's dorm to go to sleep.  Lydia drunk-dialed us (she never used to drink. ever.), we saw Adam Gauzza in a movie, and we ordered Insomnia cookies. Delicious.  We were up until 2 am.

That morning was Earth Mass.  Sadly, the three of us took a million years to get ready, and so Steve and I were rather late to the rehearsal.  But Shank helped us sneak in unnoticed.  Sarah had saved me a seat, so all was good.  Then we all took a break, and then EARTH MASS started.  It was incredible.  We had never done it with the full Cathedral before, due to the fire, so it was just breath-taking to be a part of it.  We are not a fan of the new conductor, though, because he cannot keep a tempo or cue in a section to save his life. Fail(goat).  

After Earth Mass, we all went to grab lunch.  The high schoolers were idiots and wanted KFC, but we just went along with it because it is really supposed to be their trip.  Then Maria and I went back to Times Square, went to Friday's, and had an epic discussion about life over our wonderful slushie things.  We went back to her dorm, and then I took the train back to Poughkeepsie.  Back to Vassar.  Back to sadness. =[

Thanks for reading.
