Bicoastal




Well, what adjectives should I use to describe our trip to NY? To say "stressful" would not do justice to the fun we had:



To say "whirlwind" would certainly express the quickness of it, arriving in NY Friday afternoon and leaving Sunday morning (with a wedding in between), but it would not express the amount of subway riding we accomplished:




I could say "quirky", and the fact that quirky rhymes with turkey gets us almost all the way there:


(this rooster had not RSVPed to the wedding, and was removed from the reception)

Dig the racially correct caketopper!



Of course, the fact that there is a farm in Queens at all is quirky in itself:


(the groom received this goat as part of the dowry... ha ha... no, the bride did, I think...)


To say that the quarters were "cramped" would not do justice to just how small it really was, nor to the high level of hospitality we received:




Overall, there really isn't one word to describe it. It was crazy and fun. It was a kick in the pants and a pain in the ass. It was too short, and it was about time to leave. It was everything a vacation should be: a wonderful break from everyday life, a wacky series of new experiences to keep things fresh, and a whole lot of work to make going home seem like the best thing EVER!

Holy crap is that the bedroom. The furniture stores in New York must make a killing off bunkbeds.
