So I think it may take me a little longer for Untitled 2.0 than I originally thought…I am lost with WordPress and I was reading some plug-in installation instructions and I don’t know…I am getting scared again. It just seems so complicated, I need some sort of WP guru to sit here and hold my hand. They should have a service for that.

Anyways the trip to NY was alright, I mean don’t get me wrong I went kicking and screaming…But once I got there and realized I hadn’t seen my family members for 5 years I was really quite happy I went. Friday we arrived and my mom and I stayed with an old college friend of hers, which was fun because she is crazy and I didn’t care because I was tired as hell so I went to bed all early. We woke up and went to temple, which was a freaking party! No it really wasn’t but my cousin did wonderfully with her Haftarah reading and then later on that evening we got all dressed up and partied…While the UCLA Bruins played the Florida Gators and lost. But it was all good because I sipped on Apple Martinis all night and was feeling pretty fine when the end of the night came around.
The next day I was a little ummm how should I say? Bitchy? Yes that sounds about right… I was a little groggy from the previous nights festivities but we went to have brunch with everyone and then I was bored as all hell for what seemed like a week but was actually only 2 days or so. It was a good time had by all and I even got to pop into the city to have dinner with friends at this fantastic Indian Restaurant, I can’t for the life of me remember the name of it however but I am working on it.
Then finally Tuesday came and our flight was at 4:00pm EST time but didn’t end up departing until like 5:45-6:00pm EST time so you can only imagine how long that flight seemed. And did you know now when there is ever any turbulence they make the flight attendants sit down…Yeah we weren’t given a beverage until 2 hours into the flight…It was lovely. And I do believe that pretty much sums up my little family fun trip to the East Coast. Weeeeeeeeee!

    good to hear the trip went well rachel and that you got home safe and sound. oh, i’m really enjoying the innocence mission… oh yeah, does ‘feeling pretty fine’ actually mean ‘feeling slightly tipsy’ :) x

    Indeed “feeling pretty fine” can definetly be translated to “feeling slightly tipsy” ;-) Thanks for welcoming me home.
    The Innocence Mission can make some lovely music, didn’t see them coming either. The picture is awesome indeed however I can not take credit for it but Ben Shafer sure can.

    There seems something quintessentially Noo Yawk-ish about sipping apple martinis all night then ending up in an Indian restaurant whose name you can’t remember.

    Anyway, good to have you back. My musical education has been deprived in your absence.
