>I said, "Just a few more stressful activities and then I’m back on track." Aimee asked, "What track is that exactly?"

August 20, 2007 § 8 Comments

I just got home from Aimee’s retreat (emphasis on treat). I thought I’d spend the day lounging around with her but I missed my train so we had a shorter visit than I planned. I was still really happy to see her and to hang out in Calm-ville. (I kind of don’t even mind my giant chin in this profile picture of Aimee and me.)

Since I had an hour to kill in Grand Central this morning, I tried to tell myself to just sit down and read, to not spend money. Instead, I purchased two spring rolls from the market, and the largest Vogue magazine they’ve ever published. Over 800 pages. I have never bought Vogue in my entire life, but for five dollars, I couldn’t resist. I’m holding off on diving in until after my medical procedure on Thursday. That’s right, this Thursday is the big day. Trying not to think about it.

Mom and Dad come tomorrow. Looking forward to that. They’re bringing my old Nintendo so I can slaughter Joe in Super Mario II. (The princess rules!)

On Saturday my bad luck started to go away. It’s been over a month since I witnessed people falling and hurting themselves and it’s back. This is good news because when other people get hurt, I tend to be safe from harm.

Also, I kicked a pigeon. (Along with horses, when I become president, all pigeons will be obliterated.) My bare toes touched pigeon feathers. This can only be good. (I forget how this works logically. Maybe it’s just that since everything has been so stressful lately, things have to get better.

Riva has landed in Boston (like the pilgrim that she is). She’s truly my neighbor now. So happy! I can’t wait to go visit.

*I’m kind of sick of listening to music right now.
*I’m still reading the same books.
*Oh! Joe and I saw Superbad, which I recommend if you need to lose yourself in something silly and stupid.

Fall is almost here (or has it arrived?). This means more snuggling, good running weather, and pensiveness.

*Seasonal apparel I wish I owned: Sweater Dress (Let me know if you have tips on where to get a good one.)

    >There’s a great pattern for a sweater dress in the latest Interweave Knits. I’ve been considering it myself but I don’t think I have the right bod for it. You do! Get those needles out and go for it! Good luck with your procedure.

    >I’m happy to bring Mr Nintendo, but not so sure slaughtering Joe is a good idea. see you soon. love

  • mother says:

    >Do you want me to bring the ball of yellow yarn from home? Your profile and front look darling!

    >What would be the point of doing anything if not to be the best? I have to show Joe that nobody messes with the princess.

  • aimee says:

    >maybe your dad meant that you could slightly beat joe but not slaughter him.also, it’s okay to not be the best at everything you do (i know, look who’s talking, but really, it’s true!). as long as you don’t get sprained thumbs playing too hard.

  • >Good luck with the doctors, Gi. I’m thinking of you.

    >fantasy sweater dress – i’m sorry, but nicole richie seems to be the authority on these, even while pregnant. i’m sending good thoughts on the medical procedure (from the medical field, no less!).
