A (slightly drunk) Love Letter To New York City

I remember before I ever dreamed of living in New York City thinking it was impossible to know the whole city. Now I know you don't have to. You only need a few blocks here and there to be familiar and the rest fills in. NYC, I love you because you give us back so much. What we need. what we ask for, what we're too afraid to ask for, and what we crave. Thank you for never giving up on me even when I clearly haven't been as faithful to you. You shine, you sparkle; you hold when I need you to. I am truly blessed to call myself a New Yorker. There is nowhere more lovely, more inspiring, more welcoming, more forgiving, more challenging. Kick my ass and I will say thanks. You are there for me, keeping my secrets like a stalwart friend. Cheers.

The New York City night makes tomorrow feel like an impossibility and a trivial at one at that. Every neon sign calls at you; especially the ones too far away to discount on the grounds of filth/terror.

Too much

Too much time has passed, too much to update you on, too much work to make this blog presentable.

Meanwhile, you guys, surveying my archives has made me nostalgic and ambitious, an always dangerous combination. So here's to renewed posting and cheers to the many lovely developments in my life since my last posting. From the great (my job with the people who make American Idol. Um, yes, actually) to the small (Blogger app on iGoggle); a lot has changed since 2007, but much remains the same. I still love TV and the sound of my own voice. I genuinely think that is enough to get me back in the swing of things.

To start: Glee! Friday Night Lights! So You Think You Can Dance! It's snowing! The Golden Globes/Oscars are rolling around again! TWITTER FTMFW!!! Wow, kids, there is so much I want to talk about now, but I fear much of that is the wine spurring me on, so I will demure for now with a promise to return post-haste. If anyone ever reads this, do comment. T'would make my month. Cheers, y'all and here's to upcoming output. There is way too much out there for me to shut up about it.
