Singapore Ping Pong Exponent Comes to NYC

S drops by NYC after a Coca Cola (E-N-V-Y!!! Burp!) press trip! We Pad Thai ourselves silly, drop by her very cool hotel with a swimming pool in the lobby where the sofas normally sit, get shout-outs on the street from a bum or two, venture far and wide to get a coach bag or two (well one of us..), exchange tales of politics and intrigue of the office kind, look at photos of giant babies, and of course go to our pal Kenneth's office above Radio Music City Hall no less and, you guessed it! play Ping Pong!
"So whats the latest gos? who's popped? Nooooo..!!"

er..LOVE ALL!!.. lol

All very inspiring of course..
which results in "Ping Pong" the photo-series

Tasia and Gumption have known each other from since the days of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock! and had much to giggle over.. and the entire Xanadu soundtrack to reprise!left-right: Gumption, Tasia, Mark, er.. Somebody.. in Little Italy

Photographic evidence that Canadians are a truly fashion forward people!

Saturday 12pm Down on Union Square

I guess in a city that never sleeps, a pillow fight or two is bound to break out.

Blast from the Past!

Gumption struggles to hide her disappointment at the pathetic 6 inches on Madison Square Park

There's nothing worse than a long drawn out winter, with weeks, months even, of freezing temperatures without the fun of busting out into some powdery whites.. Well last week we had a snowfall of about 6 inches.. the heaviest fall this season but nothing! nothing! like last year's 24 inches.. Then yesterday the weatherdude says for all intents and purposes that's all folks! Spring is on its way.. maybe a couple more days over the weekend, of freezing temps courtesy of another Arctic blast (Whaaat?) but no more snow!!

Two and a Half Inches!

As we all know too well, the weather has been totally out of whack! It's been a cold couple of weeks (by NYC standards) with the temp hovering around freezing in the day and dipping in the night to about -8°C!
But it wasn't until a couple of nights ago that we had our first sustained snowfall this season. All of two and a half inches.. not very satisfactory at all! Especially for snow loving Gumption!
