Greetings from New York City. I arrived at JFK at about noon, and got a proposal of marriage about 20 minutes later, from a lady who works at Howard Beach subway station, who said she loved my accent! (Even though I sound nothing like Hugh Grant!)
Anyway, after about 2 hours on the A train, I’m now sitting at a bar between 79th and 80th St. on Amsterdam Ave., with Grrl and Chris. I’ll be meeting some of the other ScienceBloggers this weekend, and doing plenty of boozing and a bit of shopping too.
