I’m in New York!
It’s about 100 degrees and humid out, which makes it feel like I’m literally in the jungle…which I guess I sort of am. Can’t wait to venture into the city tonight and experience all of the crowdedeness, rudeness, and black-hued fashion that’s been missing from my life for these past six months!
Anyway, in case you’re curious, here are a few of the items on my jam-packed agenda over the following week:
-Hear E.C. Myers read from Fair Coin at KGB Bar (tonight!)
-Meet my lovely editor Shauna at the Penguin offices
-Check out Matt Freeman’s latest play, Confess Your Bubble, at the Brick Theater in Williamsburg
-Take a virtual tour of China with outings to Yunnanese, Dongbei, and Cantonese restaurants
-Attend the wedding of two good friends (who started dating when we all worked together on the 2007 production of my play, PB&J–aw!)
-Take my sister to Coney Island (she’s never been!)
And then I take off for Boston, where even more fun awaits.
What are your plans for the next couple of weeks?
What a fabulous-sounding week! And I think the weather is trying to make sure that with all that awesome stuff planned, you don’t end up missing NYC TOO much. 🙂
I think you’re right. The heat last night definitely made NY seem extra crowded and smelly… 🙂
Ummm, baseball, jury duty, and a little pouting (due to our locally-famous 4th of July fireworks display being shut down for a very good reason~ bad wildfire season). So you’d better be blogging about all that cool stuff when you get back!
Jury duty?? Oh, my. But knowing you, you’ll probably draft a whole new novel while you’re waiting in the pool of jurors… =)
Sounds like a perfect week!! My plans are to take my 12-yr-old to Sea World tomorrow for her birthday and go out with friends on Friday night to celebrate my publishing contract (just signed it yesterday!)~have fun:)
How cool! Congrats, Jamie!!
I still can’t wait to hear how this trip went!! 🙂
