Thanks for the b-day wishes everybody!
Everything has been so hectic as of late. I got a cold at some point last week and when Saturday hit I was knocked out with a soar throat and a pounding head. I was afraid to go to the Duran Duran concert because it was outside in the rain. I would risk it but being a disgusting sick mess for my own birthday was out of the question. I couldn't handle wasting the $80 ticket but Casey got his roommate to go with him so it was used well. Yeah, you're welcome Billy! Anyway, they said it was fantastic and although they were rained on for awhile it was worth it. I hate missing out on things.
Casey brought over my birthday gift on Saturday to make me feel better. He got me wine glasses the size of my head! Bordeaux glasses to be precise. I currently have zero normal drinking glasses but an entire shelf is dedicated to margarita, white wine, champagne, and shot glasses. Red wine was the only thing missing. I guess every time we are in a restaurant and they give me a giant wine glass I say something about how wonderful it is. Casey listened and got me an awesome gift. Good job baby!
When I woke up Sunday I felt much better. It was sunny and breezy. Perfect for a park day. I packed up 10 liters of boxed wine, a six pack of Heineken, a blanket, water, various cheeses, salami, crackers, and the camera. Somehow I managed to carry all this shit to the park on my own. I was fifteen minutes early so I unpacked and settled in. Of course I'm only sitting for about five minutes before some random guy starts talking to me. He is from out of town and finds it hard to pick up women in New York. I told him not to try to get to know someone in a club. It makes me so sad that I actually have to tell people that. He stuck around for awhile and kept me company until people started showing up. In return I gave him some wine. Lots of friends showed up and we had a good time. Only one person puked and he waited until the end of the party like a good friend should.
On Monday I plugged in my camera only to find that I didn't get a single good photo. Only one was of me and another friend was in it so I can't post it here. I spent the day (my actual birthday) hiding in my apartment. I make a good little hermit. Casey ended up having to take a class and call out of work so he took me to dinner that night and we celebrated with Mexican food. Then I went back home and continued dreading having to go back to work the next day.
Tuesday Sucked. Well, it sucked until the work day ended anyway. Then I finally found a bathing suite for the beach at Victoria's Secret (Thanks for the suggestion Tink!) My friend A who had to work a double shift and missed the party took me to dinner. That was very nice of her. She told me she had no intention of seeing the Sex in the City Movie and I was really annoyed with the rumors so I looked up the whole story online and told her everything that happens just before she got a text announcing she was supposed to see the movie that night with another friend. Ha hahaha Have fun!
Yesterday I left work early to go to the lady parts doctor and get a refill of anti-baby pills. I heart those pills. Getting home early gave me a chance to start packing. I actually started packing for the Bahamas already! Can you believe it? I think it's a sign of old age. I remember even when I was moving to New York I was packing the night before. I thought for sure I would be up all night Friday shoving stuff in a bag. I'm finally growing up *single tear*.
Tonight I'm meeting a dude that plays piano and showing him some stuff I like to sing. Hope he is cool. I would like to work with him on a project if we get along. Then I head home to try out the new wine glasses. SWEET! I will be on a boat floating around Manhattan tomorrow night and heading out to the airport Saturday morning so this might be it until I come back from the trip. I will try to take pictures that will make you jealous.
I'll be back. Probably.
