On the homefront

Sprout is moving in! I need to change the blogroll to reflect this. Hope everyone is enjoying the Thanksgiving weekend. More when I return to NYC.

all good things

in one week i'll be back in NOLA. so much to do between now and then. so much to do while i am there.

by the way, "gilmore girls" tonight?!

also, can i take a moment and just say that me and my tuesday night dinner party crowd would make much better post-GG chatter than the "aerie tuesday" crowd. don't ask if you don't get it. really, it's embarassing that we know. bare with me, i'm exceedingly happy.

and in other news, i have ridiculously low triglyceride levels. is this a good thing?

tomorrow i will have drinks with friends under the auspices of "work." yes, we do all work in the same industry and yes we will be networking at the time warner center in what could very well become a bar crawl given our tendencies to chat. we'll have fun. then i'll go out for a date with T. still dating after all these years.

a friend of a friend has given me the entire collection of Marilyn Hacker's poetry. I lost all my signed editions in the storm and this kind friend requested all the books for me from his friend who works at Norton. i wrote an effusive thank you note today. I am just so pleased, I can't even begin to explain it. It's amazing the kindness of strangers.

Further thoughts

I like the way Joe Scarborough keeps saying that Webb was a Reagan Republican. I'm sure he's saying it in order to rub in our faces that the Democrats have a former Republican to thank.

But in that same vein, I say it's nice to see Republicans come around to a better way of thinking. We'll forgive those inchoate political leanings.

breaking news again

NBC is reporting Webb as the winner in Virginia so it looks like we have a Democratic Senate!

breaking news

let it rain

I don't even care about the rain. Good news all around. Democratic House, potentially Democratic Senate, and Britney is divorcing K-Fed. Maybe this means we'll see less of him. Britney, we await your comeback and the fabulous anti-Kevin dance mixes. Nancy Pelosi, no dance mash-ups, please, but do step it up.

Tonight = pizza + MSNBC

Making friends wherever we go

Giff and I met a fellow NOLA native in Anthropologie tonight. Rather, my mom knew her as she was the girlfriend of our pre-Katrina next door neighbor who moved to NYC and I'd been instructed by my mom to go say hi. Like a proper Southern gal, I found her in the store by harassing the nice young lady in the dressing room and after doing so introduced myself. She almost cried and gave Gifford and me her number so we can hang out.

It's amazing how a government constructed disaster brings people together.

Also, 40% off all sale items at Anthropologie this week.
