I'm staying for a week this time. It's amazing how much money you can save if you're willing to share a bathroom with complete strangers. Which I am.
(However, I will never again share a bathroom at the Jane Hotel. Long row of sinks. Me brushing my teeth. German guy in his UNDIES walks in and starts brushing his teeth next to me. Which is more INTIMACY than I had with my exes. He was hot, but that is so not the point.)
Anyhoo. These are the planned highlights of my trip:
Ravi Coltrane Quartet.
Natural History Museum.
Sopranos Bus Tour. 4 hours driving around beautiful New Jersey. I paid for preferred seating, which means I get to sit in front, by the window. SCORE.
Next week: trip report.
On Hello and Good Buck, means of communication.

I saved, permanently, my dad's voice messages today.
It was the hardest thing I've done since his funeral.
See, if I didn't save them, there was no need to save them. There was the fantasy that there would be more of them. That these were not so precious.
The loss of my father's voice is as difficult for me as the loss of my father.
Next week: ny prep.

I need to change to Verizon. Because AT&T sucks.
But before I can do that, I have to back up my phone.
But before I can back up my phone, I need to permanently save my voice messages from Burt.
Instead, I'm ordering in Italian (food) & drinking chardonnay & watching the Adriana episode of the Sopranos. B/c it's easier. In a way.
On Hello & Good Buck, the roller coaster.
Next week: Forget it
