23 hours…that is how much time I just recently spent in New York City with the sole intent of getting myself into a taping of The Colbert Report. I had been to a taping of The Daily Show earlier this year and had jumped on tickets for TCR when I saw them available. Unfortunately, my boyfriend couldn’t go because of work training so one of my co-workers came with me.
The show was fabulous. Stephen is a sweet guy and extremely funny. The people running the show were mostly good to great. The only problem was that I didn’t have enough time to go see all the other stuff I wanted to see! Always a problem.
A picture of the stage set… I got yelled at for taking this photo by one of the security guys, but I love it anyways:
Can anyone figure out what the middle part of this graffiti is? I think it could be a spaceship or perhaps a mutant lobster?
Tomorrow, I brave my first bus to New York. We did not book Fung Wah, but rather the Bolt Bus and hopefully it will be better than not. At least our hotel is close to the drop off point so we won’t have to worry about that too much.
Going to the Museum of Natural History
Going to see a taping of the Daily Show
Going to FAO Schwarz to look at the Muppet Factory
Walking through Central Park
We did also get tickets to the Colbert Report for June, so that will be our next trip. That one, though, might just be a quick in and out. Not sure yet.
We have made it back from our weekend of Maris(s)a weddings with little problems other than a serious lack of motivation to finish my internship paper, only 2 1/2 pages left! Either way, the weddings were both for a girl named Maris(s)a and could not have been more different.
Marissa and Richard had: a full mass, a weird priest, fog for their first dance (seriously Disney like), lots of drunk friends, an injury at the end of the reception, and lots of hungover 20 year olds the next day.
Marisa and Mike had: a long Protestant ceremony, a nice priest, the best appetizers that we have ever had (they had sushi and an ice fountain with drinks in it!), an injury at the beginning of the ceremony, great food for dinner (the filet melted in my mouth and the champagne was soooo good), and a lot of hungover 20 year olds the next day.
So, some similarities, but each unique. I took some pictures…but I shake and low light does not combine to make pretty pictures. Need to get a monopod or something so that I only lean instead of lean and shake.
Right now, I’m just glad to be in my own home instead of a hotel and getting this work done so I don’t have a panic attack tomorrow. The Red Sox are going to mess up my commute to school, but I’ll be home before the game ends.
