not so budget car rental

Nina and Scott's wedding was really beautiful. It was so nice to see where she grew up and to meet more of their friends and family. Erik did great with the driving to CT. He got the hang of the automatic right away, although I kept moving his hand away from the stick, so that we wouldn't jump into reverse while we were on the highway. The only problem we ran into was when we arrived at the laGuardia Budget car rental and the lady wouldn't accept Erik's debit visa card as a major credit card, so we had to use my "major credit card", but since I am under 25 they wanted to charge us an additional $115 for an underage driver fee... even though I wasn't going to drive!!! I was furious and asked to talk with the manager... he helped us out a little bit by reducing the fee by half. Still sucked, but not as much. Let this be a warning to everyone under 25 with a credit card driving with someone overage with a debit card (all 2 maybe 3 of you)! ha

Had lunch today at Pete's tavern for the first leg of Keith's going away. It will be strange when he leaves since he was the only non-art director (a.k.a. "kid") left from when I started. So much has changed in two years and I hope that things will be changing for me too.


remember us?

So, I guess we won't pretned that we will ever be any good at keeping up our blog, but for today we'll try.

Tonight we attempted to watch BEING JULIA, but the darn Netflix DVD was busted. I think the world does not want us to see this movie. It was playing on our plane on the way to Amsterdam and I really wanted to see it, but the sleeping monster made me close my eyes. Some day I will see this movie, just not today.

I saw a coworker (not an immediate in-my-office coworker) on the G train for the second time today. I smiled, but did not say hello since I don't want to start one of those obligatory commuting small talk relationships. Is that horrible?

Tomorrow we are renting a car to drive to Nina and Scott's wedding in CT. This will be Erik's first time driving in the US. It is going to be quite the adventure.....
