It took 2 trips to Amsterdam at 114th to accomplish said consolation .. the first from my office to the apartment to get a warmer coat: people February is a fickle month and the leather jacket that I wore to the office was now not warm enough. The cats were thrilled, they got kibble as a bribe so as not to attack me when I get home hours past their usual dinnertime.
Took the M104 from the apartment to hospital, with a brief stop at University Hardware to return the broken teapot. We discussed how bored he was, how he really wanted to go home, how his numbers (he insists this irregularity is a number thing .. I have no idea) need to 'be right'. Maybe if he had a DVD player and some movies to watch ... and his bathrobe .. and well maybe pizza...
Home to get the bathrobe, the DVDs and because I am SO smart I pocketed his headphones. Then I trekked to PC Richards where for a pittance I bought a Panasonic DVD player which had no headphones .. told you I was smart .. then TAXI!!! back to hospital. We ended up having pizza from Strokos an overpriced but good deli/pizza place across from the hospital.
When I got home around 9 pm there was a pile of boxes, shipping envelopes and bills waiting for me:
The replacement for the FLIP my sister got us for Channukamas arrived. The. Battery. Was. Dead. I said that at least 10 times to the Nepalese person on the phone at Cisco before she agreed to replace the whole deal and not charge me to ship it. Either way.
A FLIP battery charger I ordered .. self explanatory, no?
A new Uncommon case for my soon to be iPhone 4 ... AT& T you are so stupid, I want to re-sign for 2 yrs so why do you make me wait til the exact day the contract ends????? Huh? Why?
And there was the pretty Catherine Malandrino blouse I ordered in a MEDIUM is a size SIX a medium? I think not. But that's what was sent .. I dont think I was ever a size 6 .. my shoulders are WIDE .. BROAD, they dont fit into a 6 and frankly neither does the rest of me. Re-packed and posted back. There's more but seriously whose still reading ...
Saturday felt .. well not like Saturday but not like Sunday.
I wanted so badly to sleep in, to be able to just sleep. Maybe all day. A silly thing to want to do when there are two cats outside the bedroom door at 5:30 crying loudly and you need to get moving so some beautification™ can happen before I head to hospital .. he called me twice this morning: first to ask me the name of the pain med he takes then to tell me he found a pen and paper so please give him my mobile #. Turned out John who blow dries my hair for me had a family emergency so I rescheduled my 10:30 appt to 3 pm. I also treated myself to a fabulous Michael Stars dolman sleeve black t-shirt, a leopard print scarf (see BlueRidgeGal Di, I told you I am addicted) and this cool multi-strand necklace. I'll model them for you another day, promise.
TAXI!!! back to hospital with not only beautified™ hair but also Mexican food - the best guacamole in Neueva York - from The Great Burrito and a chocolate shake from EJs.
I beat him at Scrabble.
His rhythm is finally settling down.
The great cardio-thorasic surgeon Dr. S stopped by, the man is painfully shy. I dont think he can look at you and speak at the same time. He told me he's just a plumber. I thought later I should have asked if he'd bend over .. yes, I did and I am not sure if I had thought of it then if I would have filtered ... and then this gorgeous Frenchman, er, nephrologist came by in blue eyes, the whitest teeth I've ever seen, a blue oxford shirt and jeans ... his just the right amount of gel black hair was cut a la McDreamy I am not sure that my kidneys dont need a doctor ... ahem where was I ...
can anyone read these leaves?
This evening's verbal diahrrea was brought to you by Asian Pear Green tea from Teagschwendner .. a veddy high brow tea shoppe that recently opened on Broadway.
And what have you done this weekend? Dish!
