M.A. is gone. Shit.
The weekend was low key. Saturday night we cancelled dinner with Cecilia and Silvio and just stayed home trying to watch a movie. After two lousy pay-per-views that we cut off after a few minutes (one being The Upside of Anger, which we both found absolutely boring, and the other some Spanish flick that he remembered having seen and being awful) we ended up watching Big on a regular channel. Sunday we got to CompUSA as soon as it opened to return a USB wi-fi adapter and buy a new one. His laptop had been acting weird but we had yet no idea of what was awaiting us. After CompUSA we had lunch in Chelsea with Nicolas and two of his friends before coming home and, after a lot of looking around on the Internet, we found our his laptop had been contaminated with a virus. Actually, a nasty worm that freaked him out. After having spent quite some time installing reference material and software on his notebook I was freaking out myself. The rest of the day was spent battling the trojans while he cooked. In the evening we agreed to watch again the absolutely delightful Finding Nemo and then had a nice long mellow chat all through a bottle of red wine.
Yesterday I had a meeting in the morning but afterwards I took the afternoon off so we could go check out notebooks, just in case. Eventually, after installing Norton's antivirus and the latest update, we managed to get rid of the worm. Today I took the whole day off and we went to the Riverside Park for a stroll, before heading to Lalo's for lunch. Given that their beer was warm, they did not have peach for my Bellini and we had just been to Zabar's for some great cheese and pasta shopping, we stood up as soon as I finished my lemonade and took a cab home.
Now he is at airport and his flight has been delayed. I just text messaged him and I am ready to try and get some sleep. Tomorrow I have to report to work at 6.30 AM for some protocol duties I've been "volunteered" to. It's going to be a long day welcoming presidents, kings and queens and the likes. Well, personally, I will only be welcoming ministers and their wives, a lot less glamorous task. It should be fun anyways and, best of all, it should keep me busy. Hopefully I will be very tired in the evening. I might go get a massage. 1:30 AM
