Uber-Update Deux

On the job front, I am still looking for a school placement. I've had a few interviews and went to a job fair, but nothing yet. I have three more interviews this week, so hopefully something will get nailed down soon.

On the fun front, In the Heights was really good. The performers were incredible, and I liked the Spanish vibe of the show. I also went with Laura to see Spring Awakening. It was innovative and interesting, but the ending was way too convenient and abrupt for my taste. The performers were outstanding. Hunter Parrish, who plays Silas Botwin on Weeds, was one of the leads, and he was excellent. I still have a long list of shows I want to see, but they will have to wait until some paychecks start rolling in.

On the food front, after Spring Awakening, we wandered around Chinatown and had incredible Chinese food at Wo Hop 17. I highly recommend it to anyone who visits. We also had rice pudding at Rice to Riches. I've never really been a rice pudding fan, but this stuff is manna. I've been craving more since we left the store. :)

I'm loving living with Laura and getting to see the baby every day. I'm also loving having lots of kitties to love on, but I do miss my Austin friends and my monkeys. (My monkeys are my friends' kids - not actual monkeys. That would be silly.) I'll be back though, in November to get Punk and ship my things, and in March to go to SXSW.

Until then, I'll just keep happily exploring the big city. :)
