Sunday==>Yes, my loyal and faithful readers and followers ... your favorite blogger failed to post yesterday ... and ... he is soooooooo sorry because it can be blamed on nothing other than the frigid weather here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World.
Yeah ... it went down like this ...
Had lunch with law student Justin Allen Pifer, who is in his final semester at Pace Law School in White Plains, NY. We had a great meal at one of my favorite Hell’s Kitchen restaurants, 5 Napkin Burger, at the corner of 45th Street and 9th Avenue. We did some much needed/wanted catching up.
When we finished we split and I came back to the apartment. It was very cold out and it began to lightly snow. It got nastier and nastier.
Nothing of any interest showed up on any of my ticket services, so for the evening I considered braving the elements to walk the 2 blocks to the AMC Theater to catch a movie.
But ... when it came time to get ready to head out I just wasn’t in the mood to get all layered up and brave the elements ... so ... Billi Pod decided to stay in. He felt totally overwhelmed by the Winter Blues.
Yes ... that’s right ... the Winter Blues. He stayed in on a Saturday night here in Gotham City ... but ... please remember, before you become too judgmental ... since he is retired ... every night is a Saturday night ... anyway ...
Now, in the name of fair and unbiased reporting I have to admit that it turned out to be a totally boring evening and he just wasn’t in the mood to sit down in front of this ‘puter and prepare a blog posting.
As the evening dragged on he regretted his decision to let the fucking cold weather prevail ... but ... that is what happened ...
So==>Billi Pod is sorry to all of you loyal and faithful readers and followers. Please forgive him/me.
Now ... your weather report ...
At 8:30am it is 14º, with wind chill down to -3º. Tomorrow is forecast to be the coldest day of the year. Oh well ...
We will now move on (or back) with Billi Pod’s report card on the Off Broadway show he saw on Friday night ...
APPLICATION PENDING, a new comedy about the hilariously cutthroat world of kindergarten admissions at a New York private school. One actress, Christina Bianco, portrays rookie admissions officer Christine and over forty other roles, including all the wild personalities that she has to deal with on her first day on the job==>A
Folks, this is a totally enjoyable evening’s entertainment and a remarkable performance by Christina Bianco as she ricochets from one character to another in breakneck speed, without missing a beat.
The audience was laughing from the moment she came on stage until she walked off.
The special effects of incoming calls, outgoing calls, computer responses, cellphone calls etc etc etc are amazing.
Billi Pod says==>see this show, it is really funny.
It just opened to very good reviews, including The New York Times.
This one-woman show is playing at The Westside Theatre on West 43rd Street, has a running time of 1:20, without intermission, and runs through April 19th.
Moving on ...
My entertainment event for today is a concert at Carnegie Hall ...
2:00==>MIDAMERICA PRODUCTIONS: Ensemble Spotlight Series @ Carnegie Hall. (concert - complimentary ticket)
Choral groups from China, California, Arizona, Georgia, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, and Oregon with Orchestral groups from St. Charles, Illinois, will perform a program of modern compositions and works by Mendelssohn and Beethoven.
Luckily, my exposure to the elements will only be on the walk to and from the Port Authority Bus Terminal and that is manageable ... at the moment.
So ... will close this out with another==>I’m sorry ... please forgive me.
STAY WARM EVERYONE IN THE TRI-STATE AREA
