Was just talking to Lucia: “Oh I talked to the super, he’s so nice.” “Had a fun elevator ride with the bitch in the penthouse. You know, Luc, she’s so nice.”
Actually I didn’t say those sentences exactly like that. After Lucia stopped laughing, she started with:
“you’re so funny, you’re so funny…”
All these years and it took her until now to see that rain can make me very sick. My sinuses get congested, chest filled, am lethargic and nasty. However because I was physically sick I had no appetite, and basically lived on hot & sour soup, pineapple, carrot salad with ginger and balsamic vinegar, and ginger tea. Passing the sushi and not wanting any is another clever am I sick test? I don’t eat diary, and recently gave up wheat in hopes that can help.
Almost as soon as the sun comes out, I’m almost all better. This time I needed more rest, all that obsessing over ac’s.
Yesterday the sun wasn’t out in the morning and I was lethargic but better. Today, I woke up, looked around and couldn’t believe the clutter. I will do laundry, I will clean, but I will put everything back where it was.
I had to throw out twelve days worth of newspapers, catalogues and junk mail. Also cleaned my refrigerator which is deep, and I can never find anything until after the expiration date.
One day the mail person told me that I get the most amount of catalogues and magazines in my building. It was beyond embarrassing as people who live here tend to get many magazines.
Have a theory that for every catalogue I throw out I will get four more. I tested this theory and found out the number was closer to five.
I enjoy all my free subscriptions to magazines I have never paid attention to before, except for Car and Driver. I don’t drive and have no interest in cars. Yesterday I knew a Mercedes because it said so, and I know Lexus’s and Murano’s. The first belongs to Rafe, the second to my sister.
My niece knew more about cars than I did when she was two and they moved from Battery Park City to Long Island. Developed a total fascination with them and could tell every make and model.
Obviously I never made it to the beach. After I decluttered and cleaned, I wrote something serious that required concentration and intense use of word count. If anybody knows an Internet program that gives you a word count please let me know as I hate using Word or any Microsoft product. For the price that fixing my bargain PC and the PC itself I could have gotten a great Mac that wouldn’t have crashed, and this is all too hypothetical and sad to me.
I’m am doing my sometime biannual less frequently semi-annual Brooklyn beach walk on Friday. There are supposed to be thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon and rain all day Thursday. However it will be over 70 so I probably won’t get sick. If this sounds confusing to you, imagine being me
I will be in Riverside Park all morning and afternoon until it looks ready to storm. Do find it amazing to live next to something so wonderful.
In the interest of blogging, and I so had to have it, I bought the almost complete line of Bliss 24/7 Freeze skin care products. Almost because I accidentally didn’t check the least needed.
Yes I’m a baby boomer, but through some fluke combination of genetics and nurture I have almost perfect and tight skin. Okay I’m the only person I know my age, except for my sister, who hasn’t had work or doesn’t need it in the face and neck. Well, mouth, uh, most expensive in town, and it will be over Monday. Which is the real reason I bought the Bliss products. Needed to pamper myself
After I used the products for three days I asked Lucia if she saw a difference, and that of course made her laugh. Saw a friend I hadn’t seen in about six weeks earlier tonight. He kept on telling me how great I looked, and I didn’t realize until a little while ago it was because of my skin.
