Today in NYC as I sit in the Cornell club waiting for my ‘luxury’ bus to Ithica

Dear Shaded Viewers,

This is starting to feel like my 36 hours trip to New Zealand. Arrived from Paris this afternoon. Took the shuttle to Grand Central Station then a taxi to the Cornell Club. There are so many taxi’s here,that for sure is a pleasure. Now I have a 4 hour layover until the 5 hour ‘luxury’ bus to Ithica. Blue skies and freezing cold.


You Wear it Well is off to Cornell University for the screening tomorrow. While in the business center of the Cornell club I decided to plug in my computer. Total meltdown, smoke, scent of burning rubber and GOd knows what else, quickly removed it before my macbook did the same. My Bless computer cables are with me and looking very good.




Actually the bus is quite luxurious, almost feels like being on a boat but shakes a lot.
