Saturday Sojourn

We have been gearing up for Vision Expo West in Vegas, so work was insane last week--I worked 12 hour days, but I did order sushi for dinner one night to soften the blow...I really feel for those of you who have been laid off, but the flip side of that in this economy is crazy-long work days...

I needed a mellow day to myself, so I slept in, and then headed into Manhattan to do some shopping.  I had lunch at Goodburger.  I have read good things about the joint in Time Out New York, so I decided to give it a try.  I was not disappointed--my juicy cheeseburger, medium rare really hit the spot!  They have a Crabby Patty on the menu.  SpongeBob would approve!  I will have to try that next time.  Afterwards, I bought a fresh, green pepper and some Macintosh Apples at the Union Square Farmers' Market.  Then off to buy some candy and a soda, which I smuggled into Burn After Reading.  The movie got mixed reviews, but I appreciated the Coen Brothers' biting wit.  I enjoyed most of their movies, Blood Simple. Raising Arizona, Fargo, and No Country for Old Men, to name a few.  Their quirky characters rarely disappoint!
