In the last few weeks it seems like we have been able to do and see a lot of things. Most of which I don't have pictures, of course! My all time favorite thing that I have done since we have been in NY is seeing SARAH MCLACHLAN.....I know this was seriously the best thing ever. I don't know how or why I was lucky enough to get tickets to this really small promo she was doing but I am sooo happy I did. This past Monday Trav and I went to the TimesTalk theater in Times Square the venue sat less than 400 people, we were on the third row and Sarah Mclachlan was promoting her new album, she was interviewed and then performed three songs. It was just her and her guitar and piano so surreal, I know I know I sound like a dork but for real it was the one performer that I absolutely love!!!! Oh and you really need to check out her two new songs I just keep replaying them, I love it.
Yes that is where she sat and no we couldn't take pictures when she was on stage :(.
What else have we done? Oh Katie's friends from SLC came out to visit, the were so nice to let me tag a long. It was a lot of fun to have them come out for a girls trip we got some fun shopping in and were able to see two broadway shows, Legally Blonde and Mary Poppins both of which were great!
Oh and I WON!!! Yes that is right the girl who never wins won tickets to David Letterman. I got online about a month ago and requested tickets to the show not thinking that I would get them, I heard they were really hard to get. Anyway someone from the show called me and left a message so I initially thought ah man I missed my chance then I called back and left a message and then they called me back again. They actually called while Katie and I were down in Central Park watching David Blaine hang upside down, which by the way was not that cool. Anyway they gave me a trivia question to answer it was "Rupert G is on The David Letterman Show, what does he do?". I don't know how I answered correctly but I did he is the deli guy. I was super excited, we went last Wednesday we saw Kate Walsh, the director of Pushing Daisies and Darius Rukker. It was fun to see how the show all came together.
Trav wouldn't take his picture with me the little nerd so it is just yours truly
Regis and Kelly! Yesterday Katie and I decided to go down to the Regis and Kelly show and stand in the standby line. We got there at 6:45 and there was already a line :(. After three and half hours of waiting we were finally let into the second taping. It was really neat to be on their set, it was a lot smaller than I imagined. We saw Jason O'hara from Life on Mars and then we saw a chef.....it was cool, I would totally do it again.
Yeah we look good we woke up so early!!!
We went to Connecticut last weekend with Katie, Jeff and MaryLyn for Jeff's birthday weekend. It was a lot of fun, we stayed in Milford which is really close to New Haven. We went to visit the Yale campus. It was really amazing it is seriously so old I couldn't believe it the buildings and architecture are beautiful and similar to places in Europe. So we spent some time on the campus and then we went down by the beach, which was also very beautiful. There were some really neat beach houses that lined the beach. It was fun to get away from the fast paced city for a weekend. Thanks for making it great guys! I have so many pictures I think my next post will be just slide shows!
Ok it is blogging time....I have been wanting to start this for a long time and today is the day. Trav and I have just moved to NYC and are excited to document and share this adventure with all of you!
