Monday, July 05, 2004 Very slow week-end and ode to the geek
I can't remember what I did on Friday, which means probably squat. Thursday night I worked late but managed to squeeze in half an hour at Marc's to look at pictures of way back when (specifically, when he was living in China, working for a radio and dancing at the local Hard Rock Cafes). Saturday I took Derek's class (new choreography, not difficult but very fast, a lot of fun) and then went shopping on my way home, in my drenching wet workout clothes. Managed to squander more money on ill fitting stuff. Got home, took a nice long bath and then slept most of the afternoon. And then it was the 4th of July. I had the choice between a picnic with Cecilia and her family downtown ( Lyle Lovett was giving a free concert) or to go see Farenheit 9/11 and then have dinner at America with Sanjida and her group. I chose to stay home, play around with clay for a while, eat a whole container of strawberry cheesecake ice-cream and try to get a pedicure only to find the place closed. So I did the next best thing, bought a couple of different hair-colors and proceeded to do a little highlighting.
I worked the evening shift this past week. The guy in charge of the shift is our resident geek, somebody who is not very well liked and I can't figure out why. He's actually one of my favorite people. Not only I like him very much, but I owe him big time. If he had not opened the door to geek kingdom to me I would probably be dead by boredom by now. He's socially awkward and kind of shy so people think he's full of it. I find him to be funny in an uptight way. And he is a great guy.
It's a national holiday today. I planned on having a fully hedonistic day but I guess all the women left in Manhattan for the week-end had the same idea and all the nail shops in the neighborhood are packed. I did get a massage though. M.A.'s plane should have landed by now. He's in town for a couple of months this time. I am looking forward to the easy conversations, the great food and the bar hopping.
Hey! I am watching some best of Ricki Lake and there's the ex couple fromcutecouple.com . Small world. 4:23 PM
