I just got back from my first ever trip to New York City (Okay not technically, but first overnight trip). It was awesome. I had way more fun than I even expected. I thought I was over that sort of thing. Tomorrow is my first day of work, so I don't even have much time to discuss this sort of thing. But let us just say that it ruled. Feeling sleepy.
Also, I practically demand that you check out this animation of the flooding of New Orleans during Katrina. It is very well done, informative and just plain interesting. Enjoy the harvest of the Internet.
