This was unexpected.

A few weeks ago I decided to try the on-line version of Jeopardy to see if I could possibly get on the show. I didn't do as well as I thought I would, and quickly forgot about it.

Lo and behold, I got home from a terrific night at the Symphony, and what did I find in my e-mail box but an invitation to go to New York on May 25th for an in-person audition! I thought about it, decided that I had nothing to lose, and so responded in the affirmative.

So. It looks like I will be in New York on the 25th. Given that Amtrak would require me to be on the 6:30 am train (yuck), I am considering going down the night before and finding either a cheap hotel room or crashing with someone...suggestions? Possible sites for couch-surfing? I am clean, quiet, and neither drink nor smoke, and will avoid cat jokes if desired....

the site I use for couch surfing is airbnb.com
I would offer, but we are a ways out and not ready for company right now.

My plans for that weekend are somewhat inchoate just now, but I should be here on the evening of the 24th and I have a cot just for company. Also two cats, one of which will snuggle you aggressively.

I'm not sure whether I will be home or away on the evening of the 25th, though.

Current plan is to go home after the audition, so the 25th wouldn't be an issue. I will definitely keep this in mind - bless you!

Also: I live way uptown but I am on the A/C/B/D lines, and w/in easy walk of the 1 train. Either way it is about 30 mins to midtown, even on the weekends.
