I've just sort of belatedly realized that I'm going to be in New York Wednesday evening on a whirlwind holiday, so this weekend is going to be jam packed with packing, boring domestic stuff, and whatever I can come up with at 2 in the morning, inevitably pacing around the room as I've forgotten SOMETHING, OH MY GOD, WHAT.
Right, I'll be spending most of the week in Schenectady with my BFF, but I will be in the city on the 31st, and the 4th, via train. I haven't planned anything, other than I'm going to go to MOMA, Muji, Kinokuniya (it has LEVELS, the ones at home are all one floor) and whereever my friends drag me.
Suggestions for things to do in NYC are appreciated - I'm meeting up with cynicalism
and...anyone else, I suppose. I'll be flying solo those two days in the city, so all help and directions are much appreciated, as I have been known to wander off into bookstores, record stores and toy shops and get lost.
One thing about the digital tv mandatory switch over that I appreciated - so many more varieties of Asian programming available, and for free! (Well, if you live in Southern California, where there is obviously a sizeable Asian and Pacific Islander presence.) Brilliant Legacy is airing on Channel 18, with english subtitles.
I don't think it's going to be my thing, after watching about 15 minutes (this is very early in the series - I think it's episode 1 or 2?) but it could just be the thought of having to watch 28
episodes (KOREA, NOTHING
NEEDS TO BE 28 EPISODES LONG) of it. I'm sure there's character progression and such but right now, I'm not in the mood.

I love the Irish - not as much as I love the Scots, but the Irish...man. That is a magical, magical place, and I'm not even being sarcastic.
