December 28, 2010 / Neurotypical Me.

A little context please.

We have not been to New York before so we were not sure how ‘normal’ this weather was. All day we were very ‘cool’ about the insane conditions. The snow was DEEP. It was still powdery so the boys kept trying to do ‘elf footprints’ and dance across the top of the 2 feet of snow, without falling through, with varying degrees of success.

Empire State Fugitive and friend

We left the boys in bed at first and went and did a few boring things like….Will went back to the Empire State to see if his Givenchy belt was still in security from last week. The only thing he found was that regardless of the security at every turn, he got to the top without a ticket and without a security check. This spun a lot of people out. He did not find his belt though 😦 I went back to Macy’s and found a lot of queues and new season stuff…and we both went home. The snow was so much fun that we got the kids up and went to the American Museum of Natural HIstory. We went via the subway and some rude person pushed past us on the way down the stairs, on her bum! She was so pissed off it was kind of awkward – but let me tell you, when the sun comes out on so much snow it is slippery. RJ actually fell over seconds after announcing that he was the King of Snow negotiating! I do have to add that I then hit him in the head with the camera on my wrist as I lost my balance temporarily.

The Museum was very cool and the real dinosaur bones of freak’n huge beasts did spin us out. There were also really 50’s displays of animals in their habitats which made us seriously feel like we were in a chapter with Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye!

Real bones boys and girls.

Holden's buddies.

By the time we slipped and giggled and slid home, we decided to go via Barnes and Noble, who are having a sale – they sell dvds cheaper than renting them – get a BIG pizza and some budweiser – and go home. In the pizza shop the TV was full of news on the Holiday Hazzard due to the snow. We sat watching cars slide across streets, we heard 155 flights had been cancelled, we listened to interviews with shocked New Yorkers and we realised that this snow was not indeed normal! Lucky us 🙂

Escape down to the warmth of the subway, but go slowly!
