We all took a break this morning to watch the Columbus Day Parade down 5th Avenue. It was like Cirque de Soleil outside...There was a woman in yellow hanging/ flying from a large blue balloon that was made to look like the moon. another was in a large hamster-wheel looking things. From our windows, she looked to be spinning/ running in midair. Marching bands played and some Sinatra wanna-be was singing New York- New York over the trumpets and drums. Good stuff. Just sorta strange for a celebration of Columbus. Whatever. It was a good break. Another good break was the Karamel Sutra ice cream I that I just chowed.
