I saw patty griffin last night! It was a really powerful concert. The songs bring up such strong emotions that my eyes welled up more than once.
I sat down on my couch today and found an engorged tick flopping lazily next to me!!! Yikes. It was really gross. I heard that you are supposed to burn them to make sure they are dead, but I felt way too much like a sociopath, so I flushed it instead. I have this horrible image of it crawling out of the toilet and biting someone on the bottom.
Since it has been raining all week these gigantic puddles have cropped up all around the bridle path where I go running/ walking. The weather has been miserable all week, but seeing two ducks swimming in a puddle more than made up for it. I tried taking a picture with my phone I'll post it if it came out.

I just had sugarfree hazelnut yolato. It was light and yummy and it felt good to walk there and browse around the barnes and noble for a ridiculously long time. I picked up this book called Rashi's daughters. I love the feeling of taking a new novel home! It's sitting on the table, nestled in a pile of my mess, beckoning to me right now...

I got sick at work today. I think it might be the new diabetes medication that I am trying. By the time I got home I was so excited to put on my gold robe and watch Infamous. I find the story to be a little too creepy.I enjoyed it but maybe not as much as I thought I might...

I took today off for passover, but it was really because I wanted to get a lot of stuff done. I made the mistake of making list upon list of what I might accomplish. This is always a terrible idea because I NEVER get all of it done, and if I do get some of it done I am disappointed. Well today I got none of it done!!! I did work on a new pose for phone camera pictures... I also biked, lifted weights and ate way too much kosher for passover berry trifle.
Oh and I'm going to see patty griffin at the beacon :)

I went out to dinner for my sister's bday tonight. We went to this incredible Indian restaurant in Jackson Heights. I feel sooo sick now though... I dont know if its indigestion or food poisoning from something i ate before. I gave Es a bath tonight, she went from grey to white! My sister calls it her "dirt pants" bcs she is noticably more grey from the waist down... Here are a couple of after pics :
Current Mood: complacent
This morning I woke up and went for a run with Esme (my cockapoo)! It was such a nice way to start the day. Then I fell into what I call the "couch trap" and wasted most of the rest of the afternoon...
pessach starting tomorrow is an excellent reason to clean out my chumetz and also a years accumulation of gross cabinet food. I've made a bag of perfectly usable unopened unexpired chumetz stuffs to donate. I dont know the hallachic law about this, but I was speaking with a friend who has the tradition of burning chumetz. To me this seems gross, messy and wasteful.
Every year, I think how good an opportunity Pessach is to go low carb... I wonder how long that will last though...

You are glucose. People feed off of you. You are
sweet, caring, and a source of energy for
everyone around you. You can inspire others
with your creativity and depth, and you can
keep people alive when in times of famine.
People love you...or at least the way you

I did the coolest thing before! I downloaded the recent patty griffin cd on itunes and burned ikt to a cd! I could have found the songs on kazaa, but instead I found my dad's password for itunes... I'm worried, I have a date supposedly with this guy tomorrow night but he hasnt called. We've exchanged a lot of emails since our date on wed, but havent talked on the phone. I emailed him this morning and said "give me a call when you have a chance and we can make plans for sat" and he wrote back "sure" but didnt call... I hate obsessing over things like this. It was the first night of chanukah he's probably doing something for that... I had ethiopian food tonight! I love the texture of the bread stuff they give you, and its so fun eating with your hands. The only downside is that my stomach hurts because it was so spicy.

|07:47 pm - We were drinking like the Irish|
I have a date! Saturday, which seems like an official date night too. He seems so nice, I generally have poor judgement though. I like woody Guthrie even. I think its so unlike me to even say yes!!! Its a tribute to him with Arlo Guthrie. Hmm I need to study Bio instead of doing everything but. I keep looking around for ski jackets that are very discounted on the internet, I wonder if ebay has them... Oh yeah I'm going skiing with my sister too!
Current Mood: quixotic

|12:10 pm - I've had some time to think about you|
I went out on a date last night. I havent in a long time. I think that I have a general mistrust for people that seem to like me. This guy did, but wasnt an agressive "liker" so I trusted him a bit more, I guess. I had a really good time, we talked for hours and had a lot to say. I had better conversations with him than I've had in awhile. I felt that we had enough in common but not too much. Enough to make it interesting. He liked me too. He asked me out again- to see Arlo Guthrie with him. My only gripe with the date was me. I feel like part of it was tainted because of where we met- in the East Village. I've been avoiding that area because my ex lives there and goes to school there. He chose the pub to go to, and I guess I should have suggested an alternative. Its just walking down in that area everything is so imbued with thoughts and memories and imiages of the ex, it doesnt make me cry anymore, just think. Once I think I need to compare and that does no good for anything. But I like this guy, I'm going to try and get out of my head and experience unanalytically.
Current Mood: I've had some time to think
Current Music: about you... On the long ride home
