This little display popped up right after Thanksgiving on Union Street. I thought that someone had just put out some freebies by the sidewalk, but after a few days of walking by I noticed the Christmas Spectacular/Radio City theme.
This one is adorable. One of my favorite Christmas' in New York I invited everyone over to help me make pipe cleaner and construction paper ornaments for my tree. I didn't go so far as to have Knick colored garland, though.
Perhaps I've just not noticed it anywhere else, but its interesting that around here people tend to block out their windows in order to make little scenes within them for the holidays. And the blow up Christmas decorations are slightly out of control this year.
My carbon monoxide alarm started beeping at 3:30 this morning. Now I know why people die. You can't see carbon monoxide and I'm too old to have been taught in an elementary school Fire Prevention Week sketch about what to do when an alarm goes off. My first reaction was to call the last person I'd talked to, but at 3:30AM this person seems to be the equivalent to talking to a manatee. He picked up the phone and then promptly went back to sleep. I'm guessing he'll wake up in a few hours to find the phone laying next to him and have no recollection of why. I googled "my carbon monoxide alarm is going off". The two responses were "buy a new alarm" and "GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!". So I called 311, who called 911, who sent the firemen over. It turns out my carbon monoxide alarm is faulty and I need to buy a new one. I hope the firemen liked my pajamas.
while waiting in line to buy a ticket, try not to give away the ending to all the other movies people will be going to see. Thank you.
Now that I know how A Country For Old Men ends, I still want to see it, but I was so angry at the loud lady standing 10 people ahead of me I couldn't do it and instead went to Margot at the Wedding. I liked it. The movie started at 1PM, but for some reason they didn't start selling tickets until 1 which made me miss the beginning. If it started how it ended I'm assuming I didn't miss anything important?
