Me: K

Gwen: u kno watl warm us up? cleaning the basement. n no1 can cumplan cuz they cant hear us dwn there. u think is good idea?

For the record, I didn’t say I was cold I said it was cold, I didn’t need to warm up because I was in my nice warm bed and had no intention of getting out from under my blankets! I was also having cramps. However, I hate saying no to any of them so she came downstairs, I got up and threw my navy sweatpants on so now I have dark blue lint on my gray tights. Yes I wore my tights to bed, they kept my legs warm!

It was nasty out today. Icing conditions so our meeting was cancelled. Next Friday is supposed to be nice, which will work out good for Em and I going to see Rob Thomas. December is turning out to be a good month!


>No not a new feature. Just my observations.

It is Christmas. For the record, I don’t celebrate Christmas. But I love to shop and this time of year is great for shopping, especially in New York. For one thing the holiday fairs. One is in Grand Central Terminal and another is in Bryant Park. At the one in Bryant Park is the booth pictured at right. I don’t know what the name means, but in this booth they are selling bags made from candy wrappers and pages from magazines. I am sure if you went on the website for them (which I haven’t done since I don’t really care) they would explain the whole process.

I bought this little bag, it is the perfect size for my camera and since I just bought a larger pocket book (so I could carry my Sony reader), it fits in there. The only thing I didn’t like, was I was here with Em and there was one in purple. I didn’t have enough money so I didn’t get one, when I came back there were no more purple ones.

There was also this place called Om Aroma & Co., Transform your skin the organic way. Em bought this hand cream that was oh, exquisite.

Another thing I like about shopping in New York at Christmas time is that for me, no parking issues! I also like the lights. They are pretty.

>Ever have a busy day that you didn’t seem to have anything to show for it?

Saturday seems like that, like I was going all day and now I can’t remember what I did. I know I did some shopping and got my hair cut, but what else? Let’s see, trying not delve into minutia of my day. I went to get coffee and apple fritter, then I went to Target, I stopped to get my hair cut after Target I went to Allsport to work out. Before I started to work out I discovered I needed a feminine care product, which I then realized I did not have. I realized this after frantically searching through my gym bag. They have dispensers in the bathroom to buy this product, I put a quarter in and didn’t get anything. So I put everything back into my gym bag and went home to get some. The creepy guy was at the front desk so I didn’t tell anyone about losing a quarter.

Traffic was slow on 52 after I got home and got my ‘personal things’ and was getting ready to leave D said, “You want to go out with 84 the way it is?” I left for two reasons, (1) I was not going on 84, (2) I had to go to Allsport, it wasn’t a choice. But the problem on 84 explains why the traffic was slow on 52, but it wasn’t bad going up to Allsport. Then I remembered I had forgotten to go to Office Depot, I wanted to get something to put my autographed picture in.

Now I know why I was busy all day and feel like I got nothing done, I kept having to backtrack and repeat trips! However I did get everything done that I wanted to get done.
