It's definitely different than Long Island, but then, being a jaded NYer/LIer ... I don't think there's any place in the world that measures up to NYC.

I did love the zoo there (I'm something of a zoo fanatic), and was lucky enough to be working in Omaha during the College World Series - and had business connections that got me in to see one of the games. On the other hand, I had a problem with the extraordinarily dry heat, which nobody told me about, nor did I expect. I worked as a consultant at Mutual of Omaha. Thank goodness for air conditioning. Although my car did not get the benefit of covered parking, so getting into it at the end of a mid-June day was akin to stepping into a blast furnace.

The only other really cool thing was that shortly after I came back east from my stint in Omaha, the movie "About Schmidt" came out and the first thing they show is the skyline and Woodmen Tower and I was all excited, jumping up and down and shouting to my wife "I know where that is!!" :-)

I love Omaha, although my husband hates it (he is originally from Long Island). I grew up in a small town farm about 40 minutes from here and lived in Florida for about 4 years. I have a feeling we will end up back in Florida at some point in the future. We have been back here 10 years and I think that is about 9 3/4 years too long for my hubby ;)

I do love NYC and Boston too. I got lucky enough to get a client in NJ that I have to visit twice a year :)

Really? In my neck of the woods on Tuesday?? Well, the weather is finally nice around here so it's a good time to be here. Just got back from Boston. Barring her potential "come-off-the-waitlist" acceptance at U. of Michigan or NYU, it looks like my daughter will be attending Boston U. Which is fine for me as I *love* Boston!! (Went to college up there myself, way back before the internet even existed.)

As for Omaha ... I forgot you're in Omaha. Did I ever mention that I worked/lived there for, oh, 2 months back in 2002? Anyway ... I'm just rambling - thought I'd pass along that tidbit.

Enjoy your Sunday (and what's left of Saturday) everyone!!

Have fun in Boston :) I am headed to NYC Tuesday for business for a few days. I am looking forward to it, even though it is supposed to be warmer here in Omaha!

MBA program, huh?! Very cool (and impressive). Glad you're still here - hadn't seen or heard from you in a while and we were getting worried.

We can talk more about the next challenge next week. For now, I'm off to Boston so my DD can check out, yet again, one of the colleges she was accepted to so she can make a decision by May 1!!

Sorry I haven't been around to answer. I started my MBA and have been crazy. I am in the groove now though :) Yes, I will be scorekeeper if you need one :)

Okay everyone ... it's been a while since the last challenge ended. And I know it's on my [allegedly broad] shoulders to come up with the challenge (or at least components of it).

Question is: Are y'all ready for another one??

And the 2nd question - for Jenn - Are *you* ready for another challenge. You have been our official scorekeeper through all the challenges, and I'm hoping you will be for this one too. So I don't want to up and start a challenge without your consent.

Have a great day all...

... and start keeping a close eye on your calories in AND your calories out (::hint hint::)
