weekend buzsim'd


central park south
 across
 from
 central park
 lots of taxi cabs
 midday 
friday
 had another dentist visit
 this time to remove stitches 
it was such a gorgeous afternoon
 out on the street
 i paused
 for
 a 
second
 before walking toward columbus circle
not
 the subway
 back to the office

 in my defense 
there was no one expecting me back 
but 
i did think about it 

saturday
 was spent
 erranding
 being lazy
 not 
joining toonman for a walk in the park
 tho
 later i went foraging for food
 walking the hood
 checking out shop windows
 bringing home some thai
 that 
honestly
 disappointed

 i went to 
land
 a small previously wonderful thai restaurant 
ordered things
 crispy calamari
 house salad 
shrimp buns

 none
 of which
like it used to be
 calamari was rubbery not crispy 
the salad was iceberg with some beets some fried tofu and the dressing on the side was frozen! 
the shrimp rolls
 toonman said
 needed
 something
 i didnt like them at all

 tossed their take away menu

sunday
 was a day of beautification
 a day spent with a friend
 drinking coffee
 hanging out

 stopped on the way home 
to get some sushi
 from
 momoyo
 hoping its as good as remembered
 i will let you know

  2. sounds like you have had a nice relaxing weekend!
    Great news here - our youngest son has purchased a house. Hopefully he will close on it and get moved before we all go to Fl for his wedding.
    Wishing you a wonderful week!

  3. How disappointing the Thai takeaway didn't live up to your expectations.

  6. I like Thai, but it better be good Thai or they don't get a second chance. I love the colors in your photo.

  9. Just hate it when I bring home 'take out' and it
    is not up to par.... but then that sometimes happens
    while dining in as well... and poor Bob has to listen to
    me chatter on about it.. yet he still leaves a very nice tip.


    and the sushi was _______

  11. I love that you say "take away" in stead of "to go". I'm adopting it :)

    Dislike when they get my order wrong. No way I'm taking it back!

  12. So disappointing when you get a bad meal...it's happened to me... And when they don't make it right after you complain, that's worse...

  13. Nice shot and great riff on you day and weekend. I've been known to take a few extra minutes when away from the office to go find a cache or get a milkshake or something.
    There is nothing more disappointing than going to restaurant that used to be good and has gone bad.
