First snow of the season for NYC! …wow, let me re-phrase that, first blizzard.
Just spent the past 2 hours of my Saturday night fighting my way through this snowy storm; first to move everything from the Shecky’s sale event back to the SoHo office (note: it took 3 trips) and then to actually get home. Best of all it wasn’t even snowing when i left the apartment today, so I was totally unprepared dressed in thin leather boots, no scarf, and no gloves. Frostbit anyone??
When I finally got to the bottom of the stairs at the Bleeker St metro to head home (after somehow avoiding cracking my head on the pavement at least twice), I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by a lone musician. No, he wasn’t playing “Let it Snow”–though he should have been–but he WAS playing a most acoustically-appealing melody accompanied by his unique voice.
I decided to spread the holiday cheer and buy one of his CDs. I was all pumped to get home, put on his CD (maybe upload a sampling for you all) and make dinner for myself, with a glass of wine in hand, dressed in my big comfy flannel button up. …only to discover the CD was called “Scripture of Today,” and he was a christian rocker (no hate) who sounds 99.9% better playing acoustic in a subway station than on his CD. Will unfortunately just have to cut that loss.
Anyways, what I DO have for you all are: a funny picture of some half-clothed chicks caught out in the snow and an all-time classic rendition of “Let it Snow” by Bing Crosby:
ps, today’s color was BLUE, but all I could think was WHITE…
