Took my time getting out today. Kevin went to the Museum of Natural History yesterday and an Art Museum today (don’t remember which one but I know it wasn’t the Modern Art one.) Kevin had asked me, before we came up here, if I would go to any museums with him and I said “No”, to which he replied: “Well you can’t shop all of the time.” Stupid statement…he should know better than that!
Found out that Macy’s was only about five blocks away from our Hotel so naturally I walked there! That store kind of freaks me out because there are so many people in there. Our department stores in Florida are like vast wastelands compared to NY stores.
I managed to find a down vest (black of course) so I could wear my kick-ass leather zipper gloves! Problem was, the weather has been so beautiful I haven’t even really been wearing a coat. I heard a local remark today that the weather had been so nice it seemed like Springtime rather than the middle of November.
Found two pairs of jeans (black, again), so I ended up walking back to the Hotel to drop that stuff off.
I also ended up walking by the Empire State Building as it was between my hotel and Macy’s. In all the times I have been in NY in my life, I have never gone there or to the Statue of Liberty. It was kind of funny to just “run into” the Empire State Building on my way to go shopping!
Took the subway up to Bloomingdales and found some remarkable bags on sale. I had so many packages and had to leave for our next comedy show at Carnegie Hall so I asked Bloomies to just ship everything to me. No one there seemed to know how to ship packages (what?!) so that wasted some more time.
I ended up meeting Kevin on some street corner and then we walked over to Carnegie Hall for Kathy Griffin’s show.
