1/800s | f4.5 | 18mm | I've always thought that New York would look something like Canary Wharf.

I keep lists. I have a list of grand things I want to achieve in the immediate future, a list of things I have to do tomorrow, a list of the things I want to do more of, a list of "dream" jobs, a list of quotes I like, and this, a list of the lists I have.

I don't particularly like lists; I keep them because I have to now that thoughts are fading faster than they are coming. I hate doing things I have to but forgetting the one or two on average epiphanies I get now seems much worse. Here then is a list of things I want to see and do when in New York in the next few weeks:

#1: The Colbert Report studio
I'm not expecting to see the man himself outside the studio but Stephen, two tickets to your show's taping, please (hand outstretched, opening and clenching fingers repeatedly). Just so that you know, I bought A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All on iTunes as you had instructed.

#2: Numerous skyscrapers
I appreciate good architecture contrary to Mr. Lee's belief that I feigned interest to chat up his Japanese architect lady friend. I'm cultured that way and do not in fact have a thing for hot kawaii Japanese architects. The Empire State Building and the Flatiron Building top the list.

#3: Museums
Another instance of my high brow interest. I'm not so much into the arts but natural history and spacey stuff make me a happy man.

#4: Rockefeller Center
Seeing Tina Fey at the NBC studio will make me happy too.

#5: A walk across Brooklyn Bridge
What makes me a happier man is a walk across the famous bridge with my super good friend.

#6: Central Park
A walk in the park with said friend is good too. Will be better with a cup of Toffee Nut Latte grande.

Where else to go and what more to do?
