>This was the first tree lighting since I moved to New York that I wasn’t watching from my private perch on the third floor of 620 5th Avenue. I was sad to miss it and not give the gift of a unique New York experience to my friends, but I had TV Land’s Game Time and the Elle Magazine’s Reader’s Prize Awards to attend. (See below.)
In my rush to get from the awards to the taping, I forgot about the lighting ceremony. I ended up paying $10 only to be let off far away from my final destination due to blocked roads. So I hoofed it cross-town through throngs of tourists just in time to see . . . the tree lighting!
This afternoon I am going to the Sloan Dialagoue with guests Ron Howard and Brian Grazer at the AMMI. After the discussion, there will be a screening of A Beautiful Mind, but I think I’ll skip that.
