I am very excited this morning. In 12 hours I will be on my way to the airport to pick up Allyson…who will be visiting me for 10 whole days! This is big. There is a very packed week ahead involving trips to the Statue of Liberty and the Zoo, a Broadway show, lots of shopping, a barbecue at our house, my nephew’s 3rd birthday party, lots of shopping and tons of non-Jenny Craig dining. We will also be revealing the winner of our bet and I’ll be sure to post a few pictures of our adventures.
I just have to make it through 8 hours of work and then I’m off for a week and a much needed break. I can’t wait. Of course…I have about three days worth of work to get done in the next 8 hours…so let me get to this week’s random musings so I can get back to work…
- There is a girl on the bus that wears a turtleneck sweater, a trench coat and tights every single day…even though it’s been 80 degrees all week. And for two days the bus had no air conditioning. I don’t understand how she’s not melting. Yesterday, he tights were sagging around her ankles…giving her the appearance of actually melting. I found this rather amusing.
- Can someone please explain the appeal of those “toe shoes”…you know…the ones that look like feet? Not only do they look bizarre, but how can running in shoes like that be good? They barely have a sole. Aren’t the soles important to absorb the shock from the impact of your foot on the ground? I don’t get it.
- There was a woman walking in front of me the other day wearing a green jacket. A man standing on the corner said to her “Nice jacket…I love that green on you.” Being a typical bitchy New Yorker, I would have either ignored him or mumbled “Bite me” as I walked by. She stopped and said “Really?”. He said “Yes, really.” She said “You aren’t making fun of me?” Their conversation carried on as I walked by…and I decided that clearly she was from out of town.
- Best headline I’ve read recently…Man Caught in Women’s Underwear After Killing Neighbor’s Goat. (Thank you Amanda, for the tweet that led me to that story.)
Alright…off to work and then on to my fabulous week!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend everyone.
