monday monologue - unraptured
The weekend is over.
I assume you'all survived the non-event:
it always sounded sort of porn-ish to moi.
Anyway it was a non-event.
a gloriously divine deep tissue massage
the sound system that pipes soothing music into the dimly lit massage studios was kaput.
if it was a foreshadowing of the end of the world
but no one there seemed to be aware
I headed back to the Westside for my weekly hair appointment,
the salon was abuzz with chatter
would it or wouldnt it
Concensus was not
When I got home ToonMan was deep into a computer game
he didnt appreciate my 'are we walking or not?' query
so I decided to head out to Apple to get screen protectors for both my iPad and iPhone
Apple was out of them but these people were recommended.
Price was right.
When I got home
ToonMan asked if I wanted to take a walk down to the 79th Street Boat Basin.
We took the wrong route
had to walk through the restaurant/bar,
in the rotunda
the music and chatter were deafening.
When we made it to the waterfront
the sky looked
very end of days
So we walked a bit faster,
with fewer stops for photo ops
I dropped my Point&Shoot
- again -
this time I think the zoom got damaged
I am not a happy camper
I love my Olympus Stylus 9000
it fits in my pocket and/or purse
goes with me everywhere.
I am happy that life goes on
My friend Mary and her husband, Jay,
were in town for the weekend
staying at another friend of mine's apartment
just upstairs from us
Sunday morning we went to brunch at my favorite Recipe
Do these two not look like twins?
Add to the chill in the air, the not quite rain/mist
a street fair
The Amsterdam Avenue Festival.
was represented by a pig roasting
roasted, then sliced and served
they were also grilling calamari.
After brunch the men headed back to our apartment
Mary and I went to
Stoopher and Boots
Stoopher and Boots
where I snapped this baby hat with crabs on it and this fun crab shaped pillow
I took the shots for my pal
who has a crab hat of her own
she let me model it once
Arent you glad the world didnt end?
If it had, you'd have missed seeing me look like a goof
