<< YOU GOTTA A PROBLEM WITH DAT?? :) >>
LOL! On the contrary! I adore going into the city for my lessons. I live
near Hartford, CT, so going is an all day event. BUT... what an event it has
1. I make sure I get to the New Haven train station early enough to get a
coffee and a chocolate frosted donut before my train takes off. (I cut it
quite close, but a little running is worth the donut...)
2. By the time my bus gets to Lincoln Center, that first coffee has worn off
(I have to get up much earlier than I'm used to to catch the train), so I must

and how much money I have left, I have various "dinner" points I like to hit.
(by the way, the lounge upstairs in Grand Central has great peanuts in bowls
on the bar and... they're FREE!)
7. And if it's still early when I get back to New Haven, a third coffee from
Dunkin Donuts is always good. :)
8. Also, the car ride to and from New Haven is always a good time to catch up
on listening in my car. (Especially if I stopped at Tower Record... You
know, opening wrapped CD's in your car with your teeth requires quite a
