So in less than an hour and a half, I will be participating in the Sound of Music sing-along screening, and I CAN'T WAIT. I'm super sleepy and loopy today, because I had a nightmare (about stupid work) that woke me up at 5 am, and I couldn't fall back asleep and was crying from dream thrall, and then I was hungry so I ate leftover crab rangoon, and then I finally drifted away again at 6:30 or so. It was an exciting morning. But I'm absolutely going to be in fighting shape for singing, and I think the bottle of wine Schmillie and I are smuggling into the theater will help.
Work went quickly, however, and no one made me cry in real life (which always makes for a good day), and now I'm eating yogurt to try and get food in my tummy before wine and Maria problem-solving.
Harpie dinner was fantastic last night, as we checked out one Harpie's new apartment in Williamsburg and he also made us delicious pumpkin lasagne. I think we were more sedate and adult than usual, but it was very nice to see everyone and catch up. And I had a really quick and cheap ($13) cab ride home, which was much better than an hour-long train ride. Yes, NYC, people want to travel between Brooklyn and Queens. Crazy, I know.
Hike texted me yesterday afternoon and we chatted all evening (with spaced-out messages) and today. Anyway, I think we're running out of things to text about now...so I'll tell him to have a nice dinner at Rosa Mexicana and leave it. But I still get smiley every time my phone beeps.
AND I'M OFF. To Austria. Later, my favorite things!
