Blame it on the train, but my boss is already there

Today we had brunch with Jenna and Joe on the Lower East Side. Afterwards we made a quick trip to Economy Candy, and took the kids to play the park between Delancy and Forsyth. It was pretty cold (mid 20s), but they had fun running around and climbing on the camel statue thing.

On our way home we got on the F train. Apparently Robert and I had a miscommunication about how long we'd be on the F; as we pulled out of the Rockafeller Center stop I asked where we were going to transfer. Robert said Columbus Circle, and I pointed out that I didn't think the F went to Columbus Circle (and in fact it doesn't), which caused Robert a fair amount of stress, since he thought that's what I'd said earlier and we were now happily heading towards Queens instead of going uptown. Oops. And the F wasn't running uptown at the next two stops. We finally got off at Lexington and walked 3 blocks backwards to 60th street, where we caught an R that took us to 42nd so we could finally get on a 1 train. Blame it on the train indeed :P

It's funny- I find New Yorkers to be fairly interested in conversations regarding the trains; which routes are best, where one can transfer, bad train luck, train missteps. But I know most of you are not from NY, so for all of you I present: my first shawl.



I'm reasonably pleased with it, although not certain that its future lies with me. I'm waiting for it to tell me where it wants to live!

i could so not live in ny, or anywhere where i had to take trains or busses or trams.......... i would stress everyday about leaving the house. i like to walk or drive myself. i like to not be in traffic also. good thing i live in the desert i suppose. your shawl is wonderful, although it would be spectacular with some other color varities, but scrap shawls rock, so keep it up jovers!

my brain can't get passed the fakery of "blame it on the rain." even from the grave, milli vanilli casts confusion upon the world of music.

All right, now TWO of my posts have disappeared from here - one with the answer from the day it was posted. I insist my vote be counted - Manic Monday. Details to follow upon request.

ok, this song was stuck in my head all night last night...and I couldn't think of who sang it. (i know now after cheating and reading the comments)

Love the knitting projects!
