I saw a man with a cat on his head today

Subject = totally true. Was walking down Fifth Avenue with Diana, and we walked past a guy with a real live cat on his head. In the rain. It was the world's most chill cat.

Day started at the Big Apple Con which was...kind of underwhelming. A packed room full of comic book sellers, and then another room that was the artists' alley/autograph area...with 99% of the autographers being scantily clad Playboy models. Yeah. So Diana and I and another friend of hers hung around for a little while, said hi to the people she knew, and then Diana and I took off to...wander.

We ended up at the Fashion Institute and since it was starting to rain we went inside their free museum to see the exhibit on "Seduction" which was really interesting. The idea of a museum exhibit about fashion and its role in seduction/sexuality is awesome. It was a rather limited exhibit in some ways (only covered from the 1750s-present) but man oh man were some of the shoes sexy. And FIERCE.

Then lunch at Rickshaw Dumpling Bar, wandered through Madison Square Park and the BBQ Block Party, before heading down to the Union Square area where we stumbled upon an awesome bar. Lillie's is an Irish-Victorian bar that we stumbled upon because they had a cool little band playing early in the evening - fiddle and banjo and flute and probably another instrument or two. We shopped around Union Square a little bit before heading back to Lillie's for a drink. Excellent bar menu with really reasonable prices for imported beers and ciders. I had an amazing Swedish pear cider. So fun.

Probably could have been improved by seeing that cat on the guy's head again. 'Cause that was really freaking cool.

Now going to watch Season 3 of Voyager with Billy. Very nice end to the day :-)
