I'm in a New York state of mind

Ok guys, I am getting SUPER-DUPER excited to be visiting New York City. Like, whoa. There is no possible way I will be able to achieve everything I want to do/have researched, but I will just have to live with that, I guess. More on that later. First, it's business time.


Check out this adorable necklace. You could be a winner if you visit My Owl Barn and blog/tweet the giveaway!

Love it!

Ok guys, there has really been too much awesomeness going on on the intarwebz this past weekend, because I am bursting with stuff to show you on here (hopefully that you haven't already seen... sometimes I wonder.)

I saw this via Twitter this morning, then again on the Swiss Miss RSS feed.

Gummi Bear Chandalier!

They'd have to coat the little buggers in poison to keep me from eating the thing. Makes me want to go pick up a bag of Haribo right nao!

Interesting clip from the wikipedia page:

"In the United States, Haribo gummi bears come in 5 flavours: raspberry (red); orange (orange); strawberry (green); pineapple (colourless); and lemon (yellow)[7]. Many offshoot companies (typically the vegan or health-related gummi bears) use more exotic flavours and colours. Trolli "gummy" bears are similarly most often sold in five flavours in the United States, however Trolli's red gummy is cherry-flavoured as opposed to raspberry."

Yeah, except the Trolli ones taste like ASS.

Also, just saw this:

I'm impressed.

Next, whilst in my NY state of mind, I've come across some cool Flickr groups and some GREAT photos. Here are a handful I like for various reasons.

Can't wait to potentially see the Guggenheim!

I wouldn't mind visiting this lovely bridge in Central Park, but it will be icky-March weather and won't look nearly as pretty, I'll bet.

I definitely wouldn't mind paying a visit to Chinatown. I hear there are good eats and cheap shopping.

I hear this place is THE BOMB... it's kind of out of the way, though. A little too far southeast for where we will likely be wandering around.

I'm also definitely going to keep an eye out for Spiderman. You never know where he's going to pop up.

Whew. Flickr can be really draining!

Lastly, just because it's awesome:

There was always something a little "off" about Velma. Now I know what it was. Btw she is totally reminding me of a cross between Daria and Lara Croft.

Later, guys!
