January 1, 2011 / Neurotypical Me.

Blooming at Bloomingdale’s.

We started the day at an early session of True Grit at Loews Theatre on Broadway. It is the Coen brothers’ new film which is based on a John Wayne movie which is based on a book. It was fabulous. We could really ‘feel’ the snow in the film. They lived out in it day and night…I know – it’s a movie, but still…it would have been cold. Jeff Bridges has always been a cool dude. He continues to work on that image, with style. Actually, he’s quite hot! I digress.

Will went back to Barnes and Nobel for more cds because they are cheap and he has no self control, and ‘they are really rare Charles Mingus and Miles Davis’… apparently.We had lunch and then the boys wandered off to ‘do stuff’ and we got the trusty M66 all the way to 60th and 3rd Avenue to Bloomingdale’s.

I really did do a tourist shot 🙂

They were having a sale and because we were city pass visitors we got the discount plus another 15%. The Americans know how to make shoes. I get a lot of sale stuff when I travel for work but I can never get shoes. I bought two very cool pairs of shoes for 25% of the price.

It terms of fashions, there are way too many of those wacky hems on dresses and jackets. Pearls and beading continue to adorn even the classiest labels. I am pleased to say paisley, and I am not just talking green, is popping up a bit more!  I love paisley. The cashmere was beautiful and cheap. I had fun smuggling Will into the changing rooms. He kept saying, ‘it’s okay we are married’, and the sales assistants would look so amused that they would let him come in with me.

Will also made friends with Dora at the Visitors’ Center so we got huge free frozen yoghurts.

Free Frozen Yoghurt tastes better.

When we got home the boys were playing Lou Reed and working on their visual diaries. Will is trying to talk them into another Harlem visit tomorrow at a church with an even bigger choir. Good luck with that Will.
