But today I went to a press conference where Mayor Bloomberg spoke concerning a project that has been consuming lots of work time in the last few months. Press conferences with the Mayor are not a regular part of my job, but I thought it would be fun to share this one. There were lots of the "regular" press there and I felt quite at home snapping pictures, as half of the room had cameras and cell phones and were taking pictures throughout the event.
The setting is a taxi garage in Brooklyn. It was a very neat and clean garage, but I had flashes where I thought Danny DeVito would emerge any minute. Any "Taxi" fans in Buttercupland?
Now it's back to the more routine at work. But it's ten days before Christmas and I am officially drifting into a festive state of mind. I expect my Shutterfly cards any minute and am in the midst of package wrapping and ordering a few last minute things online. Bought candy cane green tea and about to have a leisurely cup of it. Toasting you all with happy Thursday wishes!
