The streets are barricaded today. Because W is here. The route he'll take from his speech at Vanderbilt to his fundraiser in Forest Hills will go by within 2 blocks of my place. Okay, I'll grant you I don't take that main road generally and would have gone in the back way anyway, but, I prefer to wallow in feeling put out, thank you.
Things I need to do over Memorial Day weekend:
(1) get some new clothes
(3) organize personal finances
(4) clean the apartment at least enough so the cable guy can get through to the TV to install the digital cable I ordered
Things I want to do over Memorial Day weekend:
(1) go on a road trip
(2) go to the cinema
(3) go swimming
(4) read about three books
(5) post my on-line diary from a coffeeshop to feel all urban and cosmopolitan
Also, I plan to eat a lot of steak as I'll be reading Fast Food Nation soon and then will probably go off meat and poultry for a while. Which will make it hard to be all Atkins-y.
I'm sad that wearymoon might be going away for quite a while, but glad that she's getting to make a trip to Colorado and getting to spend time with superhick. Maybe they'll drive to the top of a mountain and see some snow. In May! Not that we didn't have snow here after Easter this year, but, I like the idea of being able to get to it year-round.
