I spent Sunday morning doing what people who don't go to church do on Sunday mornings: downloading pornography from the Net. But enough is enough and eventually I should have shifted my attention to something more constructive. Instead I let a perfect winter day go to waste. I realized it was a perfect day when I ventured out for a couple of blocks to the supermarket. Clear, crispy air. Sunny frisky afternoon. Only an idiot would spend it indoors.
Came back, cooked, eat, watched a couple of B-class movies-of-the-week (both of which I had already seen), watched the latest Real World episode and in the process found out Mary-Ellis Bunim had died. Read a couple of pages out of the stack of very interesting books piling up by my bed. Played around with JP's domain name and my photo gallery (I uploaded some pictures of Montevideo and my house in Buenos Aires as well as pictures of friends taken in January, both in Montevideo and Buenos Aires). A disgrace of a Sunday.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon with Melissa. We had lunch in SoHo and then went to Pearl Paint and got some stuff like the Vanity Box and Sculpey clay so we can do some projects together next Saturday. It was really good seeing her again and it felt even better to hear she had called me 3 times before her mom remembered to tell her I was away.
In the evening I ended up going to one of the parties. It was at S.'s, a new and very young colleague. I was impressed by the amount of people there. She seems to have attained a most difficult feast: to actually have a life outside the office and I salute her for that. Her guests seemed all rather nice but I was not in the mood. Also, they all seemed like very normal people. Too normal. The kind of normal people I like to stay away from. Also, they were mostly from Argentina and I am not very attracted to that particular social scene. Or maybe it's just that I am seriously not in the mood and I find fault at everything. I needed something crazier to lift my spirit but at this particular party the cool factor was sorrily missing and that was enough for me to leave. I don't think I really talked to anybody new, which in a way is so unlike me. I left the party early and was not up for the second one but I did call Nicolas and Monse just to make sure I was not missing the event of the century. Monse said the party was good and there were plenty of young kids playing 70's music. Under other circumstances I would have hopped on a cab immediately but then again, I chose to come back home before midnight. I hope this crappy mood is not here to stay.
So far I have a dinner party tomorrow and drinks with Vivienne on Tuesday.
