falling in love

I wanted to believe in all the words that I was speaking...

And on the seventh day, God plopped Himself down in front of a tree and took a nap. After all, creating a world in that short amount of time is pretty tiring. Unfortunately, a pack of wild dogs happened upon Him shortly thereafter and devoured the Lord. He learned from that lesson and has taken advantage of His omniscience ever since.

The new year has been so up and down over the last two weeks that I'm reluctant to reflect upon it, much less describe it in much detail. Drunken good times on the holiday with a good friend and her crew, alcohol fueled idiocy a few days later, an odd farewell "party", a painful closing down of a bridge with one of my closest friends so that I can attempt some sort of healing, the possible burning of another because I'm too old for schizo nonsense, dropped a reasonable amount of money on airline tickets for The City and a week of fun with a Kat, a job interview for a job I decided wasn't for me before it was even over, and an office full of people that tend to make me crazy more often than not. Other things mingled in there as well, but I've reached my incomplete sentence limit for the day. Besides, my eyes are focused on the future. A handful of schemes are in the planning stage that have me excited about the could-be's to come, enough so to keep my mind pointed in the right direction most of the time. Anyway, I've got things to do before the day is done and it's nearly noon already. Another post later, I'm sure.

What's a fella to do?

As I mentioned earlier, I'm leaving on a jet plane and heading to New York to visit Kat. I'm going to be in the city starting in the afternoon of March 4th and leaving fairly early in the day on March 11th. The tickets have been bought and I have a fairly good idea of where my head will be resting while I'm there (just as long as I don't drive Kat crazy while I'm there). Now I merely need to figure out how to occupy my time. The only touristy thing I'm terribly interested in doing is viewing the city from atop the Empire State Building. Jen has suggested a visit to Barcade amongst a handful of other things that have already fallen out of my head (a hint that she should repost them here). Oh My Rockness doesn't yet list any shows that I'm super interested in aside from MAYBE Dengue Fever.

So I turn to you, oh worldly LJ friends. What should I make a special effort to do/see while in NYC? This trip will probably be on the cheaper side of life unless I've gotten my tax return back by then, so seeing expensive Broadway shows will probably not be on the table. Also, I've got an ugly mug. Trendy bars will only let me in on account of any pretty ladies that accompany me, if I'm lucky. But really, all suggestions are welcome.
