>Week late

>I am behind on my blogging yet again. Summer seems to be a time when everything slows down, except giveaways. I have been getting e-mails for giveaways and it seems that I have no time for this blog. Not true.

First the giveaway, if you have never been to Bella is reading, and you like Philippa Gregory, make sure you stop by. I am running a giveaway for her new book, The White Queen.

Back to last Sunday, D and the kids went to a Star Trek convention in New Jersey. They were very excited because Leonard Nimoy was scheduled to be there and taking pictures with fans. Anyway, Em and I thought that since they were blowing off church to go to see Spock, we could blow off church to go to Manhattan. A while back, while I was reading Daryl’s blog and she mentioned the High Line (click here), I told Em I wanted to go there. She had heard about it also, but from another source (more about that later). So we went to the city and started the trek down to 20th Street and 10th Avenue. While walking along 10th Ave she mentions, “There’s Chelsea Piers.” We get to the High Line. It was threatening rain so not many people were there. There were a couple of nice men that welcomed us. There was much to take photos of.

(Yes, I am having fun with Picasa collage maker.)

Lots of indigenous plants and cool places to sit pretty neat over all.

It was then that I noticed that Em wasn’t taking pictures of the High Line. She was taking pictures off the High Line, toward the river. I asked her, “Are you taking pictures of Chelsea Piers?” One look at her face told me she was. Then when I caught up to her she asks, “What was that line Logan said to Barack?” Huh? “In ‘The Wee Small Hours’, when Logan and Barack come up here and Barack says the city is turning this into a park, what did Logan say?” Then I realized where she had heard of the High Line. From LOCI! These pictures are also in my slide show down on the right, along with pictures from the Today Show.
Then we walked uptown, thinking we would go to Central Park, but the weather had other ideas. It started to rain, and I do mean rain. We ended up taking a cab to Cafe Frida, where I discovered this wonderful Mexican Anisette Liqueur and Em had Flan. Then we went home. Cause we were soaked.

>Taking a break

>From my game and everything else. Em is happy, she found out the date for the first new episode of Law & Order:CI.

I left work early, my back is still hurting me. I need to do my exercises but I can’t work up the energy too. As soon as I finish here I am going to take a bath and do other grooming stuff, then I will be back to check my e-mail and see if anyone else has been reading. Oh and I have to read all the blogs I follow, haven’t done that in a while.

Well, talk to everyone later.

>Hitting the bed

>Well not really, really I just going to wash my face take out my contacts, clean the litter box, take my pill and crawl under my blankets and pull them up to my cheekbones. Then I am going to pray that the temperature drops and the roads ice over so I don’t have to go to work tomorrow.

Lady K got her package. Reminds me I need to go back to the thread and thank her mom for telling me. I was starting to get a little worried because my mom got hers on Tuesday and my mom is on the west coast, her mom said she has already written a note to her Grandma.

I finished my book so I watched 2 episodes of L&O:CI on the way home from work. I think I might begin to love long train rides. So now I have to finish the few things I need to do on here and then go to bed.

>New bank account

>I decided to open a new checking account. I was planning on starting my savings account with this bank in the new year, you know, the one for my move. So I just to start earlier. Besides I just got an overdraft due to partially my own stupidity and partially the banks way of posting transactions. Anyway, I just got tired of it so I went and opened a new account. Now begins the process of changing things around. I already changed Amazon, I have to wait for my card to change some other things.

The box of books (well it wasn’t a box actually, it was a package no matter) has finally found it’s way to my bed where they are lying all scattered about. I put them in Shelfari and LibraryThing and put them in a post to be published on Monday for Mailbox Monday. Now I just have to find a place to put them until it is time to read them.

Tigger downloaded some episodes of Law & Order: C.I. for me. I have the 16GB I-Pod and so the whole season fits. What fun! I tried to find a nice picture to post here but couldn’t. I had to tell Em and she told me to shut up!

😛 to her.
