Tuesday, November 23, 2004 In short
I am adding a links page. For now, just click on "What's new" because I have yet to categorize the URLs.
So ... seems I have gotten into the habit of waking up at 4.40 AM for a few minutes, going back to sleep, waking up an hour later and staying in bed surfing and playing with the computer until I finally decide to get a cup coffee and get up around 8.30 or even later. Bizarre.
Today Claudio, his son and Haizam, will all be arriving. Should make for a fun evening.
Saturday morning, after my trainer's appointment, I went to Bloomigdales to start getting a feeling of what's out there to buy presents. What's out there is basically extremely expensive. I did not find one single thing I liked for under 400 bucks, and I certainly liked several over $1000. Not good. Guess I will have to shop elsewhere. I still managed to get a pair of boots at Naturalizer. Soon I'll have to move out of my apartment to make room for my shoes. I'm considering competing for a new closet ...
Saturday evening I met Debra and Lili, a friend of hers, for a hurried lite dinner and a movie. The movie was Almodovar's latest ("La mala educacion"), which happens to be the office's movie-of-the-week. If you ain't seen it you are totally out of the loop. The movie is OK, a bit on the gay porn side, though nobody will hear me complaining. The story is farfetched but the acting is great and Gael Garcia Bernal in drag looks a lot like a prettier Julia Roberts. The theater was 99% Chelsea boys, which was great for the restroom line. First time ever I see a line coming out of the men's room while we girls were in and out in a sec.
After the movie it was still very early so I called Nicolas and we went out for a beer in our neighborhood.
Sunday I picked up Melissa and we toured a few shops in SoHo. I bought myself a black dress, of course, then we got some sushi at Dean & DeLuca and came home to clean up my room. Melissa was perfect. We managed to get rid ot two huge trash bags of paper and magazine and I organized my computer desk. If these things really give out nasty vibes I will be dead very soon or I will be glowing in the dark. I'll have to post a picture for anybody to understand the amount of peripherals and gadgets that surround me.
After taking Melissa back home I dropped at Cecilia's for a beer and was home early.
Yesterday after work Pamen and I went to Century 21, I bought a couple of presents I can't blog about and I also bought myself a pair of bright orange rainboots. After shopping we went to Pipa. I had been there once before with Vivienne. I really like the place. The tapas were great, the sangria was light but tasty. Francia joined us a while later and I really enjoyed myself with some good girlie talk.
Wish I had more time to write a decent post. Soon. Hopefully. 8:00 AM
