I happened to be up by Bloomingdales today and they were literally rolling out the red carpet.
They also had red curtains covering the windows.
I remembered hearing something on the news about Christmas displays being revealed at another store and they made it come across as a big deal. I’m surprised that in a city like New York, something as trivial as the unveiling of Christmas window displays is newsworthy. Of course, since it is such a big deal, I’m curious to know what’s behind those curtains myself. I suppose I’ll see the next time I pass through.
Some people aren’t quite as patient as I am though. There was some guy walking back and forth. I thought he was talking to himself at first but then I realized he was holding what looked like one of those Flip video cameras. Maybe he was using UStream or something, or just recording. I don’t know. Anyway, he tried to get in behind the curtain and got shooed away. He was laughing about it into the camera, saying he got busted trying to peek in. Later, I swear I saw the same guy on the TMZ segment on Fox 5. The guy I saw on the street looked just like the chubby white guy on the show. Could be coincidence. Who knows?
