Sweet Jesus. Is anybody tired of me yet? Personally, I am sick unto death of listening to me whine. So let's have done with it - poor little me, the big bad world has done me wrong. Gnashing of teeth, etc., etc. Enough - done. Time to choose my attitude and all that, let's talk about something else.
But first, let's talk about how amazing and lovely you people are. I heart every one of you. Thanks for helping.
I've pretty much decided that the phantom stomach slash side slash back pain is definitely appendicitis. However, I have a four day weekend next week so I am trying to put off the surgery until after that. If you want to send me flowers in the hospital, my favorite flowers are tulips and my favorite color is purple. If you have trouble finding tulips, being out of season and all, you are welcome to send bouquets of wine instead.
So here's the thing - I'm going to New York in October and need an entirely new wardrobe before I go. The last time I was there I could have stamped "tourist" on my forehead and it would not have made the fact any more obvious. This time, I'm determined to be cool. We went to New York for our honeymoon and are going back for our fifth anniversary. The difference is that when we got married we were very poor. Our entire combined income was less than I make myself now (and let's all hope that my employer never figures out how overpaid I am since all I do all day anymore is blog). On our honeymoon, we had $500 to spend for the week. Now, that is slightly more than I would like to pay for a fancy dinner. (Well, ok, it is considerably more than I would like to spend for a fancy dinner, but you get the idea.)
And so once I again I need your help. What should we do while we are there? And much more importantly, where should we eat? We did lots of the tourist stuff last time, and will do more this time but I would also like to do and see some things that are off the beaten tourist track. I'd like to see at least one off-Broadway show. I want to eat lots of scrummy, delicious, vegetarian things. We're going to Becco on our anniversary (if I ever remember to make the reservation) but other than that I'm open to suggestions. Suggestions, anyone?
