Psychedelic Gardener

2006-04-11 03.jpg

The groundbreaking (or more like rail raising) of the High Line was an interesting event to attend yesterday morning. I left with many conflicted thoughts that I will probably expand upon in due time, probably post wedding and spring semester when my brain is a bit clearer. Kevin Bacon was there, though, and no event is fun without a little six degrees of Bacon.

By far, the best parts of the event were the hideous green hard hats that we received upon our arrival. [Here is a little secret about me-- I have always wanted a hard hat, though probably not in neon-apple green.] Unprepared for such a gift, I had nothing to hide it in on my way back uptown. This prompted a variety of humorous comments, including some homeless man on the train who looked at my little potted plant and then at the hat and asked, "Are you a psychedelic gardener?"

Clearly, I am not, but I am expecting Sally to transform my hard hat into a wedding accoutrement.

I still have time to mail the wedding helmet to you, right? You promised you'd wear it. Now Lex has a matching one as well, although I'm thinking draped in black with some tuxedo-esque accessories might be good...

If you are serious, we might just be able to fulfill that request. We are organizing a pre-wedding parade. For real.

Maybe you could talk Kevin Bacon into leading the parade festivities. Wearing a green hard hat.

I was there too! Sorry I missed you - work at the place of a million meetings. Ed Norton was there too and Susie got a free plant. Me, I got free lunch
