DH (froggy, to those of you who are in the know) and I were discussing how to celebrate my upcoming birthday (not quite a big one, but I always try to be out of town on it) - and no, it wasn't today or yesterday, it's the 10th, in case you want to mark it down on your calendars ... we both thought that a couple of days at the beach might be a good idea, but, after checking around for the best price and the best options, we (actually he) decided that a new air conditioning unit for the bedroom would be a better decision.
So, I went down Broadway to Bed Bath & Beyond, pulled out my credit card, and had it loaded into a cab --- ah, the pleasures of living in the Big Apple! And yes, much much MUCH less expensive than a couple of days at the beach ---
And now, I'm about to quietly drift off to sleep in my chilly and comfy bedroom!
No pix of my sleeping quarters, however - it's a big fat MESS!!!!!!!
I got a haircut today ... not my normal "shorn to the short hairs for summer", because Froggy and a few other people said to leave it long on top - I did it for him and them, and now seriously feel like I'm channeling Paulie:
and, seriously again, after the command performance party I have to attend Tuesday night, I'm going back and getting my "real" haircut - this one will be too hard to handle (as well as an attempt to take pix of one's hair without looking in a mirror...) and stay tuned for an explanation of this pic:
Spent a serendipitous day with 3 good friends - knitting content will resume tomorrow. I took this quiz thanks to Abundance of Lisa and here's my result:
MY NEW YORK AGE IS 38
This New York age puts you into a middle category between young and old (but not "middle age" per se). Be proud. You've got a nice balance between going out hard-core and staying in. You care about culture but also like some quiet nights. Keep it up, but think about expanding your horizons in the other directions. Head to Studio B or Anthology Film Archives for the first time, or finally check out the Village Vanguard or Elaine's for a dose of old-school NYC.
