Weekend in Newark

Things I did for the holiday weekend:

  • See my brother (Friday, Saturday and Sunday!);
  • Work;
  • Drive into New York via both the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln Tunnel;
  • Park in Manhattan;
  • Eat dinner on the Upper West Side;
  • Walk around in layered polar fleece;
  • Eat paella in the Ironbound;
  • Watch football while working;
  • Get the sniffles;
  • Work more.

Right now, I'm leaning towards going home next weekend, even if it's only for a day. I don't know how how much more hotel living I can stand.

Finding parking in Manhattan is an achievement unto itself!

If you feel like you're coming down with a cold, swathe both feet with Vick's VapoRub, put on socks and go to bed. When you wake up in the morning, you should feel like normal.

I'd have to leave the hotel to find Vicks' VapoRub, and frankly, it's too cold for that. I'm going to have soup and tea for dinner, which hopefully, will do the trick.
