X is for. . .

an eXcuse not to finish the 2009 ABC along?

This ABC Along on Ravelry finishes on January 3. I was doing fine till March. Took a seven-month stall and then began to pick up letters.

Now I'm stuck. Adding to the pressure is that I'm making the ABcs NYS/NYC-centric.

Could I do X is for Xmas decorations in NYC?



No, that won't work. That's the only photo I've taken of Xmas decorations in the city.

Could I do XL NYC? (eXtra large NYC)





Don't think so. I already covered that with V is for. . .

How about I write something about and take photos of x-rated NYC? But this isn't the 70s anymore. Times Square isn't the scary place it used to be with peep-shows, porno movies, topless bars and fleabag hotels.

Times Square has gotten so eXtremely cleaned up that tourists can pull up a lawn chair and sun themselves.





So that's not gonna cut it.

I think I should just x-out X is for. . . and move along to Y is for. . . .

I thought NYC was X-traordinary when I visited there a couple years ago. I think you covered your X!

I'm with Iron Needles. X is for X-traordinary NYC.

Hint: you could alwauys say Z is for Zeller when she visited NYC. Ha ha!!!!!!!!!

I agree, you covered x quite well.

I wanted to tell you that you kept me entertained on my entire ride home from Olympia the other night, I got caught up reading your blog and enjoyed every minute of it. I couldn't believe when I looked up and we were almost home. I wasnt' an hour's worth of reading behind, but pictures were loading slow so it took me most of an hour to see it all, I really was kind of far behind.

I'm going to miss your NYC alphabet.

I agree. I, too, will really miss all the NYC info. What else could prompt me to read and learn all about water towers? I can't get past that photo of Times Square. I had NO IDEA that folks just unfolded a lawn chair and plopped down!

Thanks Mary for the entertaining tour of NYC letter by letter. Well, not Y and Z yet.
