oh three day weekends. are they not the best? why, oh why, when they invented calendars and the working world, did they not make weekends three days instead of two days? a missed opportunity, i say.
the star of this weekend was nyc, for sure. from friday morning onwards, the city seemed to sparkle and grow more luminescent with each sunrise and sunset. and while i've lived in different places and come to see that every place has something to offer, something unique, it doesn't really matter if you don't take advantage of it. so on monday night we found ourselves at the upright citizen's brigade theater (the house that amy built!), and saw colin quinn for $5 as he tested out new material for a new off-broadway comedy show he's working on. i love colin quinn - he is quintessential new york to me, and although he's not as famous as some other SNL alums, i was beyond thrilled we'd get to see him up close and personal. naturally, we grabbed some pizza from patsy's beforehand and as the lights dimmed i thought - yes. this is why i live in new york city. and when it's all said and done and i have to go on to my next adventure, i won't be kicking myself for opportunities squandered. after a weekend where it seemed to shine, it was a great way to end it - thanks for everything nyc.
