Wednesday, May 04, 2005 Me, busy?
I seem to be in a going-out frenzy. I might be overcompensating for the disastrous two weeks in Uruguay. I hardly have time or stamina to blog. Since last Friday I've been to Turkuaz (dinner on Saturday, good food, cute waiter, appallingly stiff bellydancer, kinda boring evening), Sylvia's (lunch on Sunday, horribly crowded at the beginning but once most of the tourists were fed it seemed to get better, so-so food, extremely slow service, second round of mimosas never found our table, good singers), Chumley's (opening drinks on Sunday, great place, friendly people), Ty's (later on on Saturday, I could not find a decent link for this one, a bear gay tiny bar filled to capacity with bald/shaved big men with facial hair), dinner was at some pub in the Village, then along came Monday and an evening at home, and then yesterday it was Williamsburg and Sea (dinner yesterday, great decor, very noisy, good enough food but not filling enough for Fabian) and Galapagos (yesterday, drinks after dinner, great music, cute guy behind me at the bar). Tonight I'll be out again. All the while, my finances and my weight are going to hell. The price of happiness.
I have a few pictures to upload, but it will have to wait.
And now I should start fixing lunch for Pascale, who will be here in less then a couple of hours. Then I'll get to go to work. Today we will have a wine in honor of Claudia, a coworker who died last week. She was sick with a recurrence of cancer. It had started as breast cancer, which she survived, only to discover it had spread everywhere less than six years later. The whole affair was quite depressing. No family in town, her closest friend abroad. It was still amazing to watch the people she knew best at the office pulling together to take care of her until the very last minute.
Note to Nicolas, who did not know what a Moleskine was (several cool factor points were detracted because of surprising ignorance): yesterday, at Galapagos, this Asian girl was taking notes at the counter in a ... guess what? 10:39 AM
