had a super good time back east!
it was so much fun at chiller! thanks kevin for bringing me back so soon!!
i got to see alotta ppl i had met before and alot of new fans & made new friends too!!!
always so much fun! i was sitting next to eddie and warwick. i walked around a bit and met some of the other celebs there. i'm not sure how many fans were there, but the place was so crowded, the line was stretching out to get in, the fire marshall had to control the crowd i heard, and cars were parking on the turnpike cuz they had no where else to park, while waiting to get to chiller.....
& had a super good time out at dinner sat nt w/ wally & gang! lol too much fun! and later on, back at chiller party- the band was smokin'! and the costumes were wild! it was awesome! i was supposed to get up and sing helter skelter but i didn't! next time! haha always next time right? hehe
k, so hopped a bus into nyc & explored more of the city!! love the food! love the shopping, love how central park is beautiful right there, this beauty w/ all these tall concrete buildings around it. love the architecture of the buildings!!! got some great pix in the park, didn't see any trash or bums or whatever, it was just really pretty in the park! i think it would be fun to be a dog walker in nyc, always take the dogs to the park :) :) fun fun!
saw "sweet charity" on b'way, it was great.
love 5th avenue, who doesn't? some of worlds best shopping! and most expensive! i spent way too much $$ at armani exchange. went into st. patrick's cathedral, my mom sat thru mass, incase you are wondering, no we're not Catholic, but it was a beautiful experience. the church is so old and the stained glass is remarkable. so beautiful!
rockefellar center was neat, the iceskating rink there is tiny, compared to what i thought it would be!! ppl were skating and having fun.....
went to the met- metropolitan museum of art- incredible! i have loved van gogh for so long, to see his work up close was amazing!! starry nights wasn't on exhibit, but lots of his drawings & paintings were, and the painting cypress! oh my goodness! absolutely amazing! also explored all the Egyptian artifacts, the tombs and mummies, and the jewerly! those ladies were decked out! and just so many wonderful paintings! it's crazy how these masters could paint a persons portrait and it looked just like a photograph! and camera's weren't even invented then.... the paintings looked so real! and the way the artists used the light too! to make it look 3d almost in some, just beautiful. did i say that enough yet? haha
ok, what else????
didn't do canal street this time, but went thru part of garment district....
no time for little italy, bummer!
i love how the ppl on the sidewalks are just hustling along so fast! it's like do not even think about stopping! as many ppl as cars on the streets. walking is the way to go and if i lived in nyc, i'd be super fit cuz of walking fast everywhere!
we walked over 125 blocks in one afternoon!!
we got a rental car and drove down the coast of new jersey, i was going to work on some songs, and we got just a little lost and ended up heading into pennsylvania! oops! so cut real fast across the state! enjoyed spending the day with damian and his family, and w/ jay too! i was playing w/ damian's girls, they are cuties for sure!! when we left, we switched hotels, to move to the one chiller is at, and we checked in around 3am and decided to go for dunkin donuts -only about a couple miles away, and ended up lost in nyc~ yes, we were staying in new jersey! crazy. the roads are nuts. but it was also sorta fun. no one was hurt, so hey why not? but we were sooooo tired! it was unbelievable! so much for a quickie 10minute donut run! turned into hours hehe
soon enough, time to head home! had to repack bags at airport cuz way to heavy overweight w/ our nyc buys... but we made it & watched fantastic four on the plane- which i had just watched at the hotel nt before! go figure!! had a bumpy flt to lax and just a reminder we were truly back in la, we got rear-ended on way home from the airport! wow! thx for the welcome lol hehe!!!!
hope everyone had a good halloween nt! hope the kids got lotsa candy!!
