24 hrs in NYC

We saw and ate a lot even though we were in NYC for just one night. We saw the Claes Oldenburg exhibit at MOMA which was excellent. I loved his oversized plaster sculptures of food and other miscellaneous objects. A photo of his plaster hat is included here. We went to my favorite Ukranian restaurant, Veselka, and dined on borscht, potato periogis, and stuffed cabbage. It was heaven! We also went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and to Shopsins for brunch. Shopsins was out of this world. Kenny Shopsin was there, and yes, we were a bit starstruck having seen the doco, "I Like Killing Flies." The diner is now in a cute indoor market on Essex Street and the food is AMAZING!

I hate cars but like these ones

Car culture is such a drag. I hate having to own a car. I hate having to drive everywhere. Traffic is such a godawful bore. I'm going to have to replace my current car in the not too distant future. It would be really cool to get one of these vintage Citroens. They're so pretty, fun, and a little silly. I really love them.  

I kind of want to get a Smart car. If you hate cars, having a cute little car is the way to go. The cuteness makes it more like owning a pet.
