Tribeca Film Festival

I have arrived in NYC. I'm writing from the Film Festival's Industry Lounge. How nice of them to provide computers and snacks.

The new terminal at JFK is amazing. My red-eye flight? Not so much.

I couldn't check-in until three. I showered and chilled at one of my closest friend's loft. We went to lunch after picking up her daughter from pre-school. Okay where did all these kids come from? My friend was saying how most of her friends are not moving to the suburbs after having children. There are kids, nannies and strollers everywhere. LOL

I miss her. We worked together at Sony Music and despite the crazy hours, had a blast. There were many fun and funny moments, great concerts, hilarious and passionate co-workers. I can't believe it's been eight years since my move to the west coast.

It is so strange to be back in city where people walk. We cut through Union Square Park and the steps were packed with people eating lunch, reading or just hanging out. My old neighborhood has changed so much. There is a Trader Joes and a Jamba Juice.

I have already walked at least three miles today. Looking forward to dinner in the Village tonight. I saw a very cute man on the elevator of my hotel and he was so nice to pick up something I dropped. See, chivarly is not dead.

Tomorrow it's meetings all day.

Sounds like you're there on business? Or is it a mix of business and pleasure? :) Have fun!

j. doe - I know what you mean!

delina - it's mostly business but so many of my friends are in the film business so it's not too bad. :)

gibber - I think the worst is today. I'm in meetings for most of the day so it's okay.
