Rockefeller Center

5:45 pm:  Traffic was a little grumpy.  I chatted up a friend on the way home from work.

6:00 pm:  Changing my clothes to make the 6:42 train to Grand Central to meet up with Chris.

6:15 pm:  Noticed that I had been trying to read the same email for about ten minutes.  Man, I had a headache.

6:16 pm:  Unzip meter.  *Click*  Oh good.  30 mg/dl.

6:16 and a half:  Eight guzzled sips straight from the juice bottle.  Cats are milling around at my ankles, keeping tabs on their home-alone owner.

6:25 pm:  Fumble to finish dressing.  Still feeling like garbage.  Must make train.  Must talk like robot.

6:38 pm:  In the car, mostly dressed, feeling better but still a bit crummy.  Eating a piece of frozen wheat bread that I grabbed from the freezer (obviously) because when it's frozen, I can gobble it down easier than chowing on a dry piece of bread.  Text Chris:  May not make train. 

6:41 pm:  Park car.  Run like hell from the car to the platform.  The lights of the train are approaching as I coax a ticket from the automated machine.  "Come on!" I mutter.  Half a piece of frozen bread still clutched in my hand.  Ticket prints.  Doors open.  I scramble on.  Finish my froast (frozen toast).

7:45 pm:  Meet Chris in Grand Central.  "What happened?"  he asked.  "I was low.  And I had to run.  But everything is cool now."  He nods and takes my hand.  And we commence our travels to Rockefeller Center to see The Christmas Fun.

snowflakes and angels, of course.

I'm such a tourist, but it is just so amazing to see all these sights.  The snowflakes in the background here actually were part of a music and lights show.  I took a video.  It's linked here.


These ornaments impressed the hell out of me.  They were across the street from Radio City and I just couldn't rip myself away.  The sound of the water rushing, the steady hum of the city ... it was awe-inspiring.

The Skating Rink God

Chris took this shot and I thought it was absolutely beautiful.

Kerri and the Tree

And, of course, the tree itself.  The camera fritzed out a bit, but we scored a few shots of the massive Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, all twinkling and gorgeous in the night air.

Kerri and Chris
Christi, we thought of you the whole time.  ;)

That is so geat that you take advantage of how beautiful Rock Center is in the winter! I live and work within a 5 minute walk of that tree and I STILL haven't gone over to see it! Perhaps today at lunch I'll venture over...

fun! My sister and I were there Sunday night. My favorite part was the guy dressed as spongebob taking a break. from the knees down, he was spongebob, and he sat next to the big yellow square part of his costume while eating a hot dog and talking on his cell phone! I saw at least one befuddled kid...

Those pics are great and I could not stop laughing at the froast! LOL

Hmm. I walked right by Rockefeller Center yesterday afternoon, saw the giant balls and such, because why? Because I live in NYC. In case you forgot. :-P

Oh that looks so much fun!

Oh I love the giant ornaments!

Looks like a blast, glad you caught the train!

Holy low blood sugar batman! 30 mg/dl is a pretty scary number!

Way to go on working through it and having a great evening. The pictures look great!

You know, I really don't miss NY.... until Christmas. There's just something extra festive about the city in lights... glad you two got to enjoy them!!! It was great seeing those photos.

And I'm glad that you made it up from 30 safe and sound :)

Whaaaaaaaaa! Stop it. I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go. You're not he1ping, y'know. Not. one. bit. I 1ove New York City and it's just magica1 at Christmas time. I'm so freakin' jea1ous.

So glad that 30 didn't prevent you from having all that fun :-)

Terrific photos!

Happy Birthday, Larry! Kerri, I think you need to celebrate!

Be damned you 30!! Isn't NYC amazing this time of year?

Email me.

Shannon - I just tried to email you and it bounced back. Email me asap...

here via Microfamous and must say I love the color of your scarf. Would you call that a paprika shade?


It's too complicated to get into the why's of not being to access your email address via the link, but email me at the address I left when I signed in to make this comment...not my old one.

Bloggadocio - Thanks for coming by! And I hadn't given too much thought to the scarf color name, but "paprika" is a nice, classy one. Better than the "sort of pink, but not really" color I was thinking of. ;)

LOL...this is so screwy...what is your address?


Awwww perty pictures!!!! I sent you more blogs hehe...check the walmart one i did lol

Isn't funny that we mostly continue as normal (with compensating adjustments, or course) despite facing a nearly major medical emergencies - 30 mg/dl is teetering on the brink of hazardous, wouldn't you agree!?

Anyway, I'm glad everything worked out. I can't wait to see all that stuff next week!!
