First night in New York

I landed at JFK airport half an hour before Pat landed in Newark. I got here first. They gave me a nice room with a great view. They gave her the room next to mine. My internet access works, hers doesn't. Take a look at where Pat is now sitting an hour after her arrival - in my room - as I trudge around in pajamas working (yes, STILL) on The Silver Compass.

For the last half hour, she's been playing the broadway WICKED soundtrack from her system - loud. Loud enough to make the couple in the room on the other side of me thump the wall. Slow, deep breaths... Anyone out there know whatever happened to Oscar and Felix? Did they cancel the sitcom or did one of them murder the other one? Just curious...

Holly, thanks for the laugh. By the way, I'm a Felix, too.

Ha! I hope the two of you (and the city) survive your adventures!

(I am half-way through LOTTERY and note something very familiar about the t-shirt Pat's wearing in this photo...)

Hee hee hee. Has she got the chair pulled over to block the door???

I knew it. She's a Mac person. Right on.

You two are gonna take over that town!

Nice reference!

I love reading both your blogs, getting both perspectives!

You'd better keep 'em coming as I am living vicariously through you guys!

It sounds like tons of fun! Well, except for that whole working part. ;-)

Larramie said...

And you're BOTH loving every minute of your "odd couple" experience. Party on! ;o))

Actually, I think Felix and Oscar got married, adopted 3 kids and are now living in a big house somewhere in New Jersey.

Try not to get arrested!

I agree - New York is like a shot of creative energy. But you can't do too many shots and still function :) Have a fun trip ...and keep on keepin' on with THE SILVER COMPASS. It will be worth it!

Your dedication to work is making me feel downright lazy!
