In happy news we had a fun afternoon and night in NYC with Deep's sister and nephew. Although it was freezing cold we went up on top of the Empire State building. It was a gorgeous and clear day. Nothing like seeing for miles to remind you that you are really just dust in the wind.

We then enjoyed a yummy Italian Dinner and a comedy show.
The comedy show was extra entertaining because we tried at the last minute to get tickets at the well known Comedy Cellar but they were sold out. We put our name on the waiting list only to be approached by a guy with a clip board asking us if we wanted to see a comedy show at a bar nearby for just $20 per ticket. It was probably close to zero degrees at this point so we wanted to do anything that was inside...and fast! We paid the money (cash only of course) and he handed us a sheet of paper with some writing on it. We started to wonder if we had been totally scammed. Why does having a clipboard make all things seem official? Luckily it was not a scam and we got to see at least ten comics of varying comedic ability. It was a lot of fun and took our mind off our of our uncertainties.
Happy Valentine's Day!
