Sunday, October 17, 2004 Wake up, please!
Saturday I went to meet my new trainer and was done with the workout in less than 20 minutes. It was good but I think I can work a little harder. On my way home I got into Barnes & Noble, went crazy with craft magazines and books and ended up missing Derek's class. On the positive side, I have now started to prepare the tags for my X-mas presents.
In the evening Pamen had invited me over to her place with Nicolas, Pilar, Chema and Carmen. It was pleasant enough but very subdued. She's a lovely person and so are the rest but I can only handle so much lethargy. It’s not like I have to be dancing like a maniac every night, although that would be nice, it's that if it's not going to be sex, drugs and rock'n roll, then I want it to be a meaningful conversation. I love a lively exchange of views, a debate, even a confrontation. I enjoy picking people's minds and learning about their lives. On the other hand I tire very easily of unconsequential small talk. I also hate shop talk. After several blotched attempts at starting something we ended up playing a round of Cranium but the level of energy was nowehere near what it was the first time around. When we left, I walked a few blocks uptown with Nicolas and yearned to go into any of the bars we were passing by. The music was blasting, people were spilling over the sidewalk and I was just brokenhearted.
Friday Joe called from North Carolina. He said something about a cartoon or a doll that he has kept for years because it reminded him of me. It was his "little Rosario". It floored me. He is sending it to me so I should receive it shortly. I'll probably be horrified at what reminds him of me.
Later on M.A. called from Madrid. It was a nice long conversation. I think we've come to an agreement: I'll write, he'll call.
And then on Saturday Annie called from North Carolina to see if I was available for dinner next Sunday. I am, of course. And Saturday I have a baby shower for Pascale. Vivienne will be there and I haven't seen her in a while. Hopefully I'll meet a bunch of nice girls.
I spent all of today working. While on a short break I read un article on an Italian newspaper on line where the author mentioned a guy that might be somebody I went to school with and who is now living in NYC, teaching at Columbia University. I immediately wrote him an e-mail and now let's see how it goes!
With a little luck I'll get my iBook back tomorrow! 10:10 PM
