I had no expectations, and obviously had no plans, and that's what made it so fucking sweet. I didn't get to see all that Big Apple offers, which makes me want to visit again this weekend. From what I remember, I did get to experience Chinatown, Lil Italy, SoHo, 5th Ave, and of course, Central Park. The hazy parts are highlighted by our Sat-nite trip to Stereo (29th & 12th Ave)... waltzing past the red velvet rope of unfabulous people, we partied with DJ AM (aka Mr Nicole Richie) all night enjoying multiple bottles of vodka, and apparently capped off by a couple Chinese Fire Drills on Broadway. I say 'apparently' because... I don't remember anything after the sixth or seventh blunt - which would probably explain why I slept outside my first night in New York City.
Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!) I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away. RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)
