Mother Theresa on Empire State Building

11 06 2010

There has been so much talk and bitching about whether or not the 100th birthday of Mother Theresa should be celebrated with a special color of the Empire State Building in blue and white. The Empire State did not want to do this. No one knows why but catholics are pissed and feel it is about them. I dunno, at first I thought they only did things that have got to do with the U.S but the 60th anniversary of communist China was celebrated in red last year and the death of Pope John Paul 2 was remembered as well. Owner Malkin even said yes to Mariah Carey so than mother Theresa must be a yes as well,a little more important in history then miss Carey don’t you think. My feelings about mother Theresa or a bit double. She has done so much good for everyone in the world also for instance opening AIDS hospices in NY, but is also the reason I lost a quiz on TV once and with that lots of money. I thought a pic of her was shown really blurry but it was actually Frank Sinatra. I was nervous,all right!! But it has haunted me ever since.

10 most over-hyped things to do in NYC

15 05 2010

The travel site concierge made a list of things that you should not do in NYC. I have done all and do not agree with most of it.

1 Hansom Cab Ride through Central Park. Love it. Great way to see the park quickly.

2 Dining at Tavern on the Green. Does not even exist anymore, food was not great, atmosphere was.

3 Eating on Times Square. Love Ruby Foo’s, W Hotel restaurants.

4 Comedy Shows on Times Square. Saw Mario Cantone at Caroline’s, was a lot of fun.

5 Shopping at Century 21. BF does not like it, but my sister bought a fabulous expensive coat for a lot less there.

6 Nightclubbing in Meatpacking District. Did it with my girlfriends to straight clubs. Not too bad, not great either though.

7 Pedicabs through Midtown. Expensive but fun

8 Eating from a hot dog-cart. Cheap and fairly tasty.

9 Visiting Empire State Building. The line is enormous sometimes and then it is not worth it but other days it is only 10 minutes and then it is fantastic.Empire State view

10 Cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery. Maybe  a bit over-hyped but petty damn tasty nonetheless.
