Quiet weekend

windy day

Friday was lazy. I took advantage of my company’s last half-day Friday and went home and sat on my butt. At least I picked up my laundry, put it away, and read a lot of I Know This Much Is True.

Saturday I had plans to go to the Halloween dog parade in Tompkins Square Park as well as some scare-a-licious events in Grand Central. But 1) the dog parade was rained out – although by early afternoon the weather had turned beautiful – and postponed to Sunday, and 2) the Grand Central stuff was on Sunday too. Instead on Saturday was “Tokyo Fiesta.” Been there, done that.

The day wasn’t a total loss. I picked up some Get Gorgeous tea, which is chock-full of antioxidants that will supposedly slow the aging process. The instructions say 3 to 4 cups a day. If I ingest that much, at least the sun won’t age me because I’ll be inside all day going to the bathroom.

Also got some Bumble & Bumble Creme de Coco conditioner. They had only the small 8 oz size and the gigantour 1 liter pump. I went for the 1 liter since I like the stuff.

Sunday I was off to NJ for my dad’s birthday. I totally forgot about daylight savings time ending and woke up wondering why my cable box was an hour early and how I could fix it. My ‘rents and I did the usual, the mall and then dinner at Penang.

The leaves have pretty much all changed. I had wanted to take a walk and take some pictures, but it was extremely windy and cold. Too bad.

NaNoWriMo starts on Wednesday. Yay! I figured out which novel I want to tackle, one I’ve been thinking about for YEARS. Sunday, appropriately enough, is the NYC marathon. I’m sad I’m not running in it but looking forward to cheering other people on and getting some cool pix.


  1. Checked out the Get Gorgeous website – checked out the price, # of tea bags, and ingredients list – I think I would drink the teas separately rooibos, chamomile, and POM drinks. Hope to get 80% the effect for a fraction of the price. =P

    Good luck writing – seeing the banners, I’m so tempted to WriMo (or whatever verb has spawned from this activity) but cannot possibly let that be a priority this year!

  2. Glad you will be able to enjoy the NY marathon although you won’t be participating.

    For sure you made the right decision with the 1L! Why not!

  3. ohhhh that tea sounds delish!
