The Movies

John and I went to see How to Train Your Dragon this afternoon. It was really cute, the price of a 3D movie however is not.

Its one thing to pay $12.50 for a movie in NY but now all these new 3D movies are $17.50! That's getting WAY too close to 20 bucks. If we wanted to see it in Imax it really is $20! I don't know if I'm really sold on all this 3D and Imax stuff, especially since it makes movie outings more expensive :(

I just needed to vent, it really was a cute movie and John and I both enjoyed it. It just makes me a little sad spending that much on what used to cost half as much in Arkansas (in reality that's alot of things, this one just really hit me in the face today).

Yay Spring!

Ok, its not technically Spring but the weather has been really nice the past couple of days. There aren't really any flowers blooming or anything but its certainly warm enough to hang out outside without a giant coat.

Rosie and I have been taking advantage of this nice weather and the extra evening daylight by going to hang out at Madison Square Park after work. She's super excited because the squirrels are still out since its still light. Today we sat on the park bench and she searched the lawn desperately for squirrels. She eventually saw one and lunged onto the sidewalk. Unfortunately there happened to be a woman walking by at the same time and the lady freaked out a little since it appeared that my sweet little dog was ferociously lunging at her :)

On to things besides squirrels that we happened upon in the park....I don't know what these people were doing but it certainly looked hilarious. They were all blindfolded and holding on to the person in front of them. I guess walking around NY blindfolded is good for your karate (or taekwondo or whatever) skills :)

Cheese Dip!

I just wanted to share the lengths I am willing to go for cheese dip...
John and I went to Penn Station to get dinner at Moe's. To put that in non-NYC terms, it would be like purposefully going to eat dinner at the airport!

That's what its come down to since absolutely no one in the city has cheese dip except Moe's. You can't even say cheese dip, you have to say queso or they have no idea what you're even talking about.

Anyway, we got a giant bowl of cheese dip to take home and we will be enjoying it all week long :)

This So Counts as Nature

I read an article recently where they had a list of ten ways to tell if you are a New Yorker. One of the things was that you think Central Park counts as "nature."

I'm not trying to say that I'm a New Yorker, I clearly come from a much more woodsy area, but this SO counts as nature :) I seem to stumble upon a new undiscovered place (to me at least) each time I visit Central Park. This is the ramble, I was there awhile ago and I definitely felt like I was not in the middle of NYC. You couldn't hear the noise from the street anymore and you could barely see the buildings. It was so peaceful and since it was a really cold day there was no one else in sight. It was kind of an odd feeling to be in the middle of the city in the woods with no noise and no other people. I'm sure its even more isolated from the city when the trees have all of their leaves, I'll have to check it out again in a couple of months.
