But I also LOVE getting back to the hustle and bustle of the city. Hello, New York! It was a trick getting here today--huge thunderstorms in the NYC area left me stuck in the airport in Philadelphia for 8 hours after a redeye flight from the west coast. When I thought it was hopeless, I retrieved my checked bag from the airplane that had been sadly sitting outside for hours and left security. Of course, 5 minutes after I left security, an announcement was made that my flight was taking off! Crud. But I had a pleasant ride to the city on the Septa/NJ Transit instead (aside from one embarrassing moment when the ass of my leggings got hooked on a ferocious vent and then stretched farther than leggings should EVER stretch when I tried to walk away). Well, I made it here in the end.
