On the upside, if my blog's technical specifications are suffering from jet lag at least The Shoes have been having fun.

We even went to the theatre. Here's The Shoes at the Sydney Theatre Company's production of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya at the New York City Centre.

"What guy?" my husband said.
"The guy in the black jeans and black t-shirt," I said.
"Yes, and?" my husband said.
"I think he's famous," I said. "I mean, I know I had some false alarms earlier, but this time I'm fairly sure."
To explain, on two previous occasions during our NY trip I also thought I had seen a celebrity. The first time it was some guy whose face I recognized but I had no idea from where. The second time I was pretty sure we were standing next to Chris Noth, the actor who played "Mr. Big" on Sex and the City, but he was shorter than I had imagined he would be, and he was wearing sunglasses, so it was hard to tell. Eventually I decided it probably wasn't him, but not before a prolonged bout of staring.
But this time, in the theatre, I was sure. Still, my husband was not nearly as excited as I was to have run into a celebrity whose name I didn't know. In fact, judging by the way the other theatre-goers were behaving, I was the only one who was excited to be in the same room with this person. Everyone else just ignored him. So maybe it was not so remarkable to run into famous people at the theatre in New York and I was just a country bumpkin. At least I was a country bumpkin with champagne.
Later I remembered that the celebrity I spotted at the theatre had something to do with fashion. Just this morning I did a quick Google search and discovered that he was the designer Michael Kors. You may know him as one of the judges on the reality show Project Runway. Here he is:

So if there is one thing that I've learned on this trip so far it's that I watch too much TV, because Project Runway? Really?
That was New York. On Friday we left the Big Apple behind and made our way to Nova Scotia. So far we haven't run into any celebrities, but that's okay. We like the pace of life here just fine, thanks.
