I’m here. I’m in Manhattan, and I’ve got a permanent smile on my face! It’s time for the New York International Gift Fair, which means I get to walk through aisle after aisle of product displays–like a kid in a candy store!!!
The trip started last night with an aptly named “red-eye” flight out of Vancouver. I thought you might like to see one of the weirdest snack foods I have EVER seen in an airport…er…ANYWHERE!!!
That’s one sassy pickle I WON’T be eating EVER!!! Can you imagine sitting crammed up against someone eating that on a plane?
And speaking of planes, I just want to put it out there to the universe that I can’t help but despise the smug business-class chumps, who get to load first and then recline in individual sleeping cubicles, while the rest of us economy-class saps shuffle past to the back of the plane. As much as I despise them, I wanted to be one of them sooooo bad!
After arriving at the gorgeous London Hotel in Manhattan, Mark and I promptly fell into sumptuous bed for an hours-long nap. Then it was time for some serious New York noshing. This is HALF of the pastrami sandwich I ordered at the Carnegie Deli on 7th Ave. Awe-inspiring! I barely finished half, but the three men at the table beside us actually told Mark he was their hero ’cause he wolfed down an entire pastrami sandwich.
We’re off to the show tomorrow, and I’ll keep you posted–whether you like it or not–with lots of product shots!
