Back in Pennsylvania! You know, it occurs to me that potential burglars could probably track down the physical addresses of bloggers and burgle their houses while they were blogging on vacation. Scary thought. Perhaps I shouldn't have put it into print.
We had a lovely time in New York, although we spent far too much money. In fact, we have only two dollars in the bank to last us for the next four days - and rent was due three days ago. Oh well. We're only short because I haven't had a salary the last few weeks, and I've had to pay for a plane ticket to the UK. The situation will improve soon, and I luckily have enough food stockpiled in our kitchen to last until Friday.
The money was mainly spent eating out - whenever I'm in NYC, I try and eat as much ethnic food as I possibly can, since there's not much in the way of interesting culinary fare in Harrisburg. We ate at an Afghan restaurant last night, and began to have a spirited conversation about the war in Afghanistan before Matt became uncomfortable about our setting and refused to continue. Hrmmm. I'll have to follow up on that one of these days.
We came home with more luggage than we took, but only because the pathologically and compulsively over-generous Cliff parceled out the discarded acquisitions of his ex-girlfriend, who has thankfully moved back to California and stopped unrestrainedly ravaging his bank account (and not his person). I picked up a nice hat, three quality mixing bowls, and a whole bunch of spices and canned goods that Cliff will never use. I'd post pictures from the trip, but Matt thinks he may have left his camera in Cliff's apartment.
