It’s because I’ve come to realize I hate you all.
You’re all wonderful, beautiful human beings. I adore each and every one of you.
I’m in New York, as I think most of you know by now. I admit I had some pretty big dreams of grandeur for the trip. My boyfriend lives here in New York and one of the main reasons I came out here was to help him move in to his new apartment in Forest Hills, Queens (a beautiful neighborhood for those of you who haven’t memorized the individual neighborhood layouts of the five boroughs).
I had these fantasies of us roaming Manhattan calmly, browsing in little boutiques to find just the right finishing touches to make his apartment home-y and chic all at the same time.
Not what happened.
Cut to us sprinting through Ikea trying to get out quickly so we’re not stranded in Red Hook, Brooklyn (NOT a beautiful neighborhood-I’m pretty sure 3 out of 4 openings to Law and Order take place in Red Hook, however the best Key Lime Pie on the planet and Ikea are there) after dark. Both of us hangry (hungry/angry) and complaining of tired feet, yelling at the other to keep going.
Cut to me, sweaty and hangry (there was a lot of hangry going on) assembling said Ikea furniture until I couldn’t move my fingers.
Cut to us hangrily sorting through curtains at 10:45 in target unable to find the right size in ANYTHING we need.
Basically, there wasn’t too much time for cooking. It’s been just over the past few days we’ve been able to slow down and enjoy our surroundings.
We even went and saw Avenue Q! I’ve seen it before, but in the middle of this showing the fire alarm went off and the entire theater complex had to evacuate. After a while, it was deemed safe to go back in and the show went on.
Later on boyfriend and I (he’s a filmmaker with his production company Suddenly Tragic and I’m also involved with a production company Get Out Of My Head) came across an incredible filming opportunity which we’ll be producing in January- so watch out for that!
Anywho, now the apartment is beautiful and put together, and tomorrow we both take off for California to have Thanksgiving with my family and then take off for Disneyland. Charmed life, I know.
I’ll keep y’all updated! I have some backlogged recipes I’ll attempt to get around to posting, but bear with me!
Hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving.
