On Friday in New York we finally had a beautiful day. We headed off to Central Park and wandered through the Rambles and by Belvedere Castle and on across to the Metropolitan Museum. We grabbed lunch at street vendors (empanada for me, gyros for Russell) and then Russell pushed me around the Egyptian sections and the photography exhibits. The Egyptian stuff was very cool. The photography was, erm, painfully arty. And really the day was too pretty to stay indoors. So we headed back out and took a carriage ride through the southern part of the park. Then we wandered by the Apple Store (wholly underground with the strange clear cube on the surface. Tres pretentious! Then we wandered over to Bloomingdales where there was a speciality chocolate shop he wanted to try. He got some truffles and I got a present for [livejournal.com profile] saffronrose for her fabulous favour of getting my laptop out of durance vile. On the way back to our hotel we stopped at an chaat house and got take-away. Having a refrigerator and microwave in our hotel room was the best thing!

Saturday Russell went to the Top of the Rock and Bryant Park to take more pictures and I went to Sephora and bought some Urban Decay eye shadow. We caught a cab to the airport and spent the rest of the day on airplanes. The cab ride home was unexpectedly expensive. Evidently San Jose instituted a minimum $15 fare for the first 3 miles. So it was about $20 to get the 5 miles home! They did say that they are seeing half the traffic that they did this time last year. But bah.

Sunday we (mostly Russell) put the house back in order (much furniture still being piled in the kitchen from having the carpets done just before we left. I spent a fair amount of time trying to get my laptop squared away. They weren't able to get all my data off and my last backup was three months ago. It stopped reminding me to backup when Russell upgraded my OS and I failed to notice. *sigh* I also went out to restock the house with food and stuff to make dinner for us and Erika & Reaps Sunday night. They stopped by on their way home from the Sacred Connections retreat.

And I played a bit of Warcraft, it being the world event Noble Garden. And I do like the world events. Ran Heroic Nexus with the guild on Saturday though we didn't down the last boss. There are some new things since the last patch, I think. I don't remember ice blocks the last time I did Heroic Nexus. And we got started late because of a server restart. Very frustrating really.

Monday I swung right into work and finished a search from before I left. Dealt with much of the stack of mail from being gone a week. Had leftovers for dinner, watched Dollhouse and CSI on Tivo and did more Noble Gardening in WoW. My computer is still not completely back to snuff. *sigh*
