Just like that classic Elton John album, I'm in a "new york state of mind" right now. Probably because of the amazing weekend I had in the Big Apple. I know it's a cliche, but there's something really wondrous about that first glimpse of Lady Liberty when your ship sails into New York harbor.
It's even more wondrous when you see the statue.
We were hungry so we went to an NYC themed restaurant called the Hard York Cafe. They had the actual Phantom of the Opera's mask on display.
I had some local cuisine, pizza (which they call "a slice") and a coke (which they call, "da bubbles"), but I think I made everyone uncomfortable by spending the whole time sitting in the corner scheming.
After that we went dancing at New York's hottest night club, Toast (Michelle was on the list). As this photo shows, it's impossible to take a bad picture of me.
