Weds, 8th Nov
Woo-Hoo! Manhattan here I come......Not!
Abysmal weather on awakening and the weather folks on the various morning TV shows ganged up on me to confirm that the rain would come lashing down for the rest of the day. The minimal visibility outside my window confirmed that my original plan to head up the Empire State Building would be a waste of time and money. Why head all the way up there if not for the view?
Spent the day again hotel-bound and tried to arrange my trip to Florida. Tried to get hold of Jenn in the morning but later found out that the schedule being imposed on her makes her more difficult to pin down through no fault of her own. Had plans for Laura to pop down for a few days sometime over the Thanksgiving holiday week but as suspected, this would be too busy a time to be realistic. We'll have to see what happens on this one.
Looked at flying down on Friday morning but this isn't the best time for my brother Kevin, so after chatting to Jenn then Kevin then Jenn again, I decided to go down tomorrow night. Have to confirm this with Jenn tomorrow morning.
At 3pm I decided that despite the weather I would venture in Newark to see what goes on there. Found out that the next shuttle wouldn't leave the hotel until 3.45, looked at the whole potential timeline and gave up on Newark.
Spent the evening mainly watching telly and witnessed a British Invasion. Sasha Baron Cohen (His Borat movie is becoming a phenomenon here), Jamie Oliver (Meat ball jokes on breakfast TV and Letterman: "Ooh, your balls are bigger then mine!", Craig Ferguson....they're all over here. Shame the Brits can't send a network technician as the hotel's network went Kaput tonight. Grrrrr!!!!
