weekend done



it was
 a wet 
very wet
 saturday 

i got my hair washed/blown dry 
then
 put my hood on
 and
 flattened out all the lovely fullness

 i cleaned 
out
 my closet
 a month or two ago
 weeding out 
all the things 
i no longer wear

 made up
 a big bag 
took
 it 
to a shop
 called
 second time around
 which sells your castoffs on consignment 
they look on line to determine the cost
 when it sells 
you get 40%
 if it doesn't sell in 3 months
 you take it back

 if what i brought them doesn't sell
 i will take it to housing works 
they take donations 
give you a tax deduction form

 win win

afterward
 i hopped the subway
 to
 columbus circle
to 
pick up a sweater
 i bought 
at 
an online shop
 to save shipping 
i had it sent
 to 
their brick and mortar store

 waiting
 for 
the uptown train




 these guys
 were 
performing 
wonderful music

 while i waited
 they played/sang 
'the christmas song'
 .. you know .. 
chestnuts roasting on an open fire
 it made the wait so pleasant
 i didnt mind
 being squished in
 with
 a lot of wet people 
for 
the short ride home 


after dinner 

take away from city bakery/bird bath bakery
chicken/corn/kale salad
gluten free pasta/arugala in a lemon dressing
kale/hazel nut/red onion salad

we settled in for the evening watching
 maleficent 
i loved it
and
 the newsroom
 i really am not happy its going to end 
i really love aaron sorkin's writing
 i really love the characters 

sigh

sunday 
was
 as gorgeous as 
saturday
 was not

 an instagram guy i know
 got a book deal
 for a book
 similar to the popular 
humans of new york

 i was the first of many who will be profiled in the book 
we had a photo shoot
in riverside park
on west end avenue
in our apartment 
 a lot of fun
 it was



these are the guys
behind
the very clever idea

eljay's in the hat and flip-flops
 nick's in the yankee cap

 i hope will make them a lot of money

a busy fun filled weekend

  1. Cool week end! I really like the last shot... It reminds me of my somewhat 100 photos of people of NYC which are waiting for me (am lazy or..) to compile them in a book... One day may be, who knows I might find an issue... Have a great week, Daryl and say "Hi" to New York for me!

  3. Congrats to the two guys! And congrats to you for being in their book. :D Nice. I love buskers who play Christmas music around town. One year I flew into Heathrow in Dec and there was a whole choir serenading at the arrivals gate. That was such a lovely treat.

    Ack! Anti robot captcha!

    Oh, OK then.

  9. What an excellent bit of news! You're being profiled? It doesn't matter who else is in the book; that alone will make it a buy here.

    And isn't it nice to come upon a really good musician (or group of them) in the subway? Always makes my day.

    (Of course, a really bad one... well, I try to remember he or she is trying their best.)
