Rectal Horseshoe Implant

Posted on November 11th, 2006

I am a lucky, lucky boy.

I feel a need to post about the week that was. Mostly because the week that was.. well, was insane! It has been, hands down, the most stuff-filled week that I have had since coming to New York and, arguably, ever in my life. Allow me to elaborate:

Last Saturday. After failing to get tickets to the matinee performance of A Chorus Line, I manage to get a couple of tickets for the evening show (which is much more difficult to do). The show itself was pretty good… I know that I may sound like a bit of a Broadway snob now, but it wasn’t all that exciting. Perhaps I have made my expectations a little bit high after seeing productions like Wicked and Chicago and RENT. What made this show cool was being able to share a box with one of the substitute actors!

Sunday. After failing to get tickets to The Drowsy Chaperone, a few of us go to an off-Broadway theatre to check out How To Save The World And Find True Love In Ninety Minutes (say that ten times fast!), a new show here in town. For an off-Broadway show, I thought that it was very well done. I will, however, be focusing on watching Broadway shows from here on in, though. Nevertheless, show number seven was entertaining.

Tuesday. Tuesday, Tuesday. Phantom of the Opera. This was huge… Phantom is the show for which I know the most songs and it was absolutely spectacular to hear them (and see them) live. Especially since the orchestra was a mere row ahead of us!! After seeing the show, I can probably say that all of the good things that you have heard about it are true; it is truly an epic performance.

Wednesday. My first concert in New York, and it was a doosey: Death Cab For Cutie!!!!!!!! That’s right! Ben Gibbard and co. came to New York and a ticket was purchased on my behalf! I was even excited to hear the opening band, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, as I have heard some good things about them. Apparently, the crowd also heard some good things and liked what they heard as this was probably one of the most warmly received opening acts I have ever seen. Death Cab, however, stole the show. They were so, so, so, so, soooo good. (Did I mention that they were really good?) They played such a tight set and were a lot of fun. Amazing.

Thursday. (Now do you know what I mean when I said that this week was crazy?) It arrived. Yes, that’s right. My friends, I am very, very pleased to say that I am now an owner of my very own acoustic guitar!!! I’ve been hoping to get one for the longest time and I knew that being in New York was a great time to do it: taxes are lower, and selection is higher. It’s a beautiful instrument, and I promise to post pictures of it soon. I’ve been having so much fun with it that my fingertips on my left hand are a little bit numb. But that’s a good kind of numb and I’ll take it πŸ™‚

Friday. First off, I had a very productive day at work. The first phase of my project was moved into the next stage, weeks ahead of my deadline. Then, to top off the week, a few of us decided to go out for some drinks at some really cool places. So, after a delicious meal at a Thai fusion restaurant, we hit up Spice Market, a very cool establishment in Chelsea. The drinks were expensive, but I guess that’s what comes with a place with a very cool atmosphere. Round two moved to The Park, the same place where I went the first night I was in New York. And, for the first time in my life, I… danced. It was weird. (No, I was not drunk.) Round three was held at Whiskey Blue, the bar in one of the W Hotels here in town. Needless to say, I got home really late (or really early, depending on how you look at it) πŸ™‚ Good times.

Saturday. Today. Technically, this would be the eighth day, so I will treat this as the icing on the cake. I went to the Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Center. Many pictures were taken and I will get some of those in my photo album. My second attempt at A Drowsy Chaperone tickets was much more successful, but there were two tickets for three of us. So I did the gentlemanly thing and gave the tickets to the two ladies I was with. With those tickets, I find myself well above the 50% success rate at getting the hot tickets. And considering some of the crowds that have been at the ticket booths, that’s quite ridiculously fantastic.

So yeah, on many levels, I am a lucky, lucky boy.
