Telectro-tastic!

Yesterday I had a lovely day. Around noon I met up with my friends Andrea, David & John and we made our way over to Brooklyn to look at friends & family across the big pond via The Telectroscope.
Surely enough the minute we arrived at Fulton Landing a torrential downpour started, while for once the sun was shinning in London; but we did not care that we got drenched: it was fun nonetheless (or maybe even more so). And yes we know we could have just gathered in front of someones webcam.
After we dried off and warmed up with tea at Andrea & David's house.
Andrea and I then met up with more girlfriends to go see the Sex and the City movie (no, I am not ashamed to say it). And yes the critics are right, the movie wasn't all that great, but as Andrea put it it was more like going to see old friends and I am glad I did it.
After the movie when our group of five walked downtown we occasionally would see groups of girls who clearly were also on their way to see 'The Sex', and we walked by one girl in a bright turquoise shoulder-less 50's style dress with an awesome purse, in very high heels & smoking who seemed a little drunk and I suspect she was also heading to or from the movie.
When we stopped by a watering hole on the LES we saw lots of groups of women slurping cosmos.
Obviously we live in a very privileged city where adults can indulge in these kind of afternoons and leave all their worries behind. But I think we all know that & appreciate it.
