>I’m So Behind

>I know I wrote two days ago but every day feels like a lifetime and there’s so much to report. I made a list. Here goes:
On Friday night, Alyssa and I went to (you guessed it) Angelica’s Kitchen for dinner. I had the strangest meal, even for Angelica’s standards. After a full day, I still can’t decide if I liked it. We stopped by Black Hound for free samples. (There’s only about eight activities that I do in my neighborhood and so far Alyssa and I have done five of them.) Then we stayed up late watching a marathon of television shows on DVD. We went through all the faves: Gilmore Girls, The Office, and Wonderfalls.
Today at work, Mike Figgis purchased a rare art book about some era of German art that I could not understand, but he was excited about it and we were excited about him. One of the volunteers thanks him for making such great movies. We knew it was him because he paid by credit card, not because we automatically identified him.
At lunch, I purchased a rug from Kate’s Paperie that was 75% off since everything is on sale for their big remodeling project. Please see pictures. I’m pretty excited about the rug. I was worried it was kind of cheesy but Alyssa fully approved.
Then in a matter of minutes, Alyssa stopped by, quickly followed by a random appearance by Rachel Steiner, a girl I used to go to Jewish sleep-away camp with when I was about twelve years old and Tara’s older sister, Jessie. Jessie, Tara, and Rachel all grew up in the same town. Rachel seemed the same and I’ve seen Jessie since I’ve lived here, but the whole thing was just super weird and exciting.
On my walk home from work, there were all these ambulances and fire trucks outside the Houston subway station and I heard people talking about an explosion, but as of tonight, I’ve seen nothing on the Internet related to this, so I’m unclear about what happened.
Then, I got to see the lunar eclipse. I had forgotten about it, but there it was! I don’t think I’ve ever seen an eclipse before. I think they’re kind of magical and people do weird things under the influence of an eclipse.
For the millionth time this week, Alyssa and I hung out. We went to Viva for some Zen vegan pizza. Then we decided to enjoy the summery weather and get a pint of Ben and Jerry’s to share while watching some more Gilmore Girls. I remembered the free pint coupon that Riva sent me months ago and we ran home to pick it up. Then we took a half an hour deciding what flavors to get and ended up with Banana on the Rum and Cherry Garcia. (Notice how I’m hiding my enormous chin in this picture.)
Whew. That brings us up to now. It’s one am and tomorrow I’m supposed to have adventures with Kim. Then maybe, just maybe, I’ll start to get some work going. Skeptical? You should be.
I’m back to drinking coffee. I was in such a celebratory mood because of the fifty degree autumn weather we’re having that I went a little overboard today and had 2.5 cups. Not really a smooth transition back to coffee, but man did I miss the stuff!
Sadly, in the middle of next week, Alyssa is heading back to Colorado for the week, so I will be without Aimee and Alyssa. On the upside, I really may get back to my writing. I could really use a residency like Ragdale to keep me from getting sidetracked. I never thought I had A.D.D., but I have found eight thousand ways to distract myself. It’s getting a little out of hand.
