101 in 1001 the second

Time ran out on my last 101 in 1001 (a couple weeks back). Lists & goals are my thing, so I've pulled together a new one to see how far I can go. I've even managed to make some categories to give myself an easier time. Some of them I've done before and want to have a go at again, others are left overs from last time. & hey, if there are any you want to help me with, let me know!

When you make it to 091, let me know! I should still be up here from now until at least 2011 and am willing to "help" with that one. :-D Well, assuming that I'm rich enough to afford Broadway by then!

I'll definitely look you up if you're still out there. Hearing about your New York adventures thus far makes me desperately want to go back to the city since you can't adequately appreciate all that is NYC & the surrounding areas at eight years old.

Yeah, I can't imagine that a child would be that impressed with NYC, actually. But then again, there are some super cool toy stores, I hear. But it's super fun as an adult! But then again, I still find touristy places to be enduring, so I'm still not a good depiction of a real New Yorker.

I think mostly I wasn't a fan of that little thing called walking, which seems to be quite popular in New York. Now, of course, that's my favorite way to travel, but at the time I put on my own dramas begging to get a cab that would have rivaled anything going on on Broadway at the time. I do remember FAO Schwartz (or however you spell it) and being absolutely flabbergasted by it all.
Coney Island sounds like the adult version.

I have no issue with walking; unless it's up hills or stairs! I'm currently too poor/cheap to ride in cabs, but I think my biggest issue with them is that you don't know how much the ride will be until you GET there. And there's really no reason for a cabbie to hurry when someone is in the cab.

I actually have no idea what FAO Schwartz is, or if Coney Island is the adult version of it. :-)

FAO Schwarz is a toy store in Manhattan. It's absolutely massive (and ridiculously expensive, like most things in New York I'd guess). My favorite part was the big piano toy that you can jump on to play.

Those are pretty amazing goals.
Aug. 13th, 2009 12:50 am (UTC)
I like to dream big so even if I don't make it I've ended up somewhere wonderful.
