*i have to disspell the myth that new yorkers are rude. i am in nyc at least once a year for work and i have never had a bad experience with people being rude to me. on the contrary most people i've come in contact with have been incredibly friendly/polite.
*it should be illegal for airplanes to be so jam packed and uncomfortable. i typically don't have a problem flying (i don't like sitting on the tarmac cos i get clausterphobic, but flying itself doesn't wig me out) but last nights flight home was sort of bumpy, lots of turbulence. i briefly thought oh fuck we're going to crash.
*i finished the handmaiden's tale. i'm going to read it again before i return it. it's disturbed me again. you'd think, given that i read and write pretty much for a living, that i could write a good book review that would suck you in and make you want to read this book, but i can't. i feel books, like i do music, and then can't describe them. it's a feeling not a word. anyway, the book is good and you should read it. i may try to write about it more when my brain is actually working.
*not only was the house (and garage) clean when i got home (finally) last night (it usually is) but the hubs had also changed the kitty litter and done laundry! wow.
*people should not be allowed to wear cologne/perfume on airplanes. especially the flight attendants.
*my ny brushes with fame (and i use that term very loosely) include marie osmond and bindi, the crocodile hunter's daughter. oh, and the founder of pound puppies. yes, you can be awed now.
*bernard and doris, movie on hbo about tobacco heiress doris duke and her butler, is a good movie. i watched it for the second time this weekend. susan sarandon and ralph feinnes.
*i forgot to take pictures of this from the hotel--but it had an intimacy kit for sale in the bathroom : ) 2 condoms, lube and "moist towelettes;" i would have bought it just for the fun of it to bring home but it was $8. really? c'mon.
*this is another brush with fame from this week--yes, indiana jones. don't look to close, yes, he's made out of legos. how fucking cool is that????
*i literally passed out about half hour after i got home last night. we made up for it this morning before work (see post headline if you're confused).
*my sister actually repaid us the money she borrowed in september. ha. i'm stunned. hey bro--guess next time you're invited to dinner at mom's you'll go huh? : )
