Honeymoon, Day 5  
So I mentioned something about waking up early when I signed off yesterday, didn't I?

Best laid plans.....

We've been getting turn down service at the hotel, which means that when we get in at night, the sheets are turned down and (instead of the chocolate or mint Jen was originally expecting) there's a card with tomorrow's weather and two individual packets of Sleep Well tension spot relief lotion. Aromatherapy and such. Last night, both Jen and I used it for the first time. I choose this as the item to blame for us staying in bed until after noon today.

Nothing to do with going and going and going all the time. Nothing at all. It's all that aromatherapy stuff. Yeah, that's it.

So anyway, it was a light day today. Green apple and street vendor barbeque chicken kabob for breakfast. We went and picked up the double decker bus tour passes and got on a bus around 2:30. Lunch at an Italian place in the Village (we were told not to call it Grenwich Village -- that makes you sound like a tourist. If you want to fool people into thinking you're a local, ignore the camera hanging from your neck and simply call it the Village. That'll trick 'em every time). Not perfect, but not bad. Walked around the Village a little bit, didn't find a new Skull for me (my man-bag is falling apart and in need of replacing), had some dessert (which outshone lunch tremendously - raspberry torte for Jen and Cherry and Vanilla Gellato for me), then got back on the bus. Got off near the theatre, got our tickets for tonight's show, and wandered around for a bit. We didn't end up with time for dinner, but that was OK, since we had eaten a late lunch. Ended up sitting in Union Square for a while and relaxing. Very enjoyable. Then it was time for Slava's Snowshow.

I'm not entirely sure how to explain what this show was. Slava is a clown in the old style - we're talking Cirque du Soleil clown, not Barnum & Bailey clown. This show is an imagining by him - more a work of art than a "show." It was extremely surreal, but very enjoyable. And it snowed! A lot.

Dinner at a vegetarian oriental fusion place after. Jen had a portobello burger, I had a sweet and sour pecan concoction. With Jen's nut allergies and my abhorance of mushrooms, we obviously didn't share this meal. Both of us enjoyed them, though.

Walked back to the hotel and had a lengthy conversation about what my chiropractic practice may or may not look like when I graduate in three years (still no big conclusions, but it's looking more and more like we'll be in Ventura County somewhere). Now we're watching a surprisingly interesting show about paint on the History Channel, and I may actually finish an entry before Jen falls asleep this time! Woohoo!

Tomorrow marks our one and only theatre-free day. I'll let you know how it goes...

Don't bother. You're married now. So you're not going to need it very much longer.
