Happy to be home, again!

P. and I flew into N.O. airport late yesterday afternoon. The airport shows signs of post-katrina misery: fewer flights, empty parking garages and a rather desolate feel to the terminal. Shops are open again and so are the cafes. When you fly in, remember to get beginets there.

We had a great time! Look for me on the Thanksgiving Day show of "Live with Regis and Kelly." I'm in the audience since, for some reason, being a RevGalBlogger wasn't enough to get me a guest spot. Daniel Craig, the new Bond, was scheduled as a guest. Rats-a-ria! His portion was taped before we got there! Kelly is prettier in person, charming and tiny. Reege is himself.

We saw "Jersey Boys" and loved the music. Great cast with great voices along with an interesting story-line about Frankie Valli. Set design looked great. I had a ticket for another show but left it at the hotel so I missed "The Drowsy Chaperone." P. said if I needed to miss a show, I picked well.

I ate a pastry for each of you so you'd feel included in my travels.....

Went to Bergdorf's to get our make-up done which I won't do at home because I don't want to sit in public having someone brush eye shadow on me. The make-up man says to brush on mascara at a slant away from your nose. This was news to me as was the blush tip he gave me.

I searched for big city cat collars for Whistle and Fish. Looked everywhere but found dog stuff everywhere. What a Dog town!

Glad to be back with you!

Good to hear from you! It sounds like a wonderful trip!!
I'll be eating beignets in 38 days, I hope!

Sounds like a lovely trip. Those New Yorkers and their doggies! Harumph (of course, my cats don't wear collars, so I'm just harumpth in sympathy.)

Welcome home!
Um, what's a blush tip? A new type of brush or sponge?
(I'm not really up on makeup trends...)

Songbird said...

I think it means a suggestion for how to apply blush. Is that it?

St. Casserole said...

The blush tip: use blush brush at sides of your face rather than slathering blusher across you cheeks from one ear to the other.

You 'probly knew this. I didn't.

zorra said...

Oh. Duh. A blush tip. I'll try it that way tomorrow.

Welcome home, St. C.! So you didn't come back with two tiny cat-sized "My Mom went to the Big Apple and All I Got Was This Wormy T-shirt" Kit-T-shirts? What kind of a kitty-mama are you? Well, at least you looked for collars, though Jenny & Rosie opine that, like their human slave, you should have been shopping for cat cookies instead.

Welcome home! Glad you got a trip in to NYC. Sounds like you had fun.

Welcome home!
I'm so glad it was a fun trip for you.
I for one, love the cast album of 'Drowsy' but have no idea what it's like as a show.
And good for you for getting fab make-up tips from one of my tribe (I presume).
I hope you indulged...You're worth it!
