Jenny is coming home in a couple of hours! That is the good news, the gospel son! Now go tell all those other fishermen about it. That's how Peter & Andrew would have done it. Yesterday was a half-day at the old office & so from there I tra-la-la'd down to Chinatown with Julia, Andy, Tiffanie, Nicole & Sherene to get some dim sum at Mandarin Court. I've probably been ruined by East Harbor Seafood Palace, because it was...alright. Not to look a dim sum horse in the mouth! I sure did eat a bunch but nobody had the same agenda as me; like, the beef noodles weren't popular? Mostly Julia & I were the only ones who dug into the bok choy? & the bok choy was maybe the best dish. Doing dim sum with different crowds is odd, not in a bad way! Afterward I came home & hit the gym, did a nice little hour & a half, a hardcore invasion of muscle confusion. Bam! & ran into Martin, keeping up the co-worker bonanza. When muscle-time was over, I came home. Reigh Bunny is in town, & we had talked about her & I meeting up, so I canceled on DnD & tried to rendezvous with her. Alas, she wasn't ready to go until 10:00 PM & honey, I'm like a grandpa in a rocking chair on a porch with a shotgun in his lap. Ten o' clock is my bedtime. So I did! I went right to bed. Had a dream that Nino was selling "V"-- vampire blood as a drug, a la True Blood-- & that I was in a huge convention hall, drafted into a posse looking for him. & I found him, under a table, hiding beneath the tablecloth. I had to decide whether to rat him out, or not to tell-- in which case someone else would almost certainly find him & then we'd both be in trouble. Well, I didn't snitch, & we both went to jail! In jail though, the police couldn't find anything to charge me with; then I beat up a prison gang leader, & got his followers transferred to dog kennels. Don't mess with me on the inside!
Today was nice; I slept in! I had been sleeping crummy all week, go figure. I slept in till about eight thirty & then spent the morning...geez, I have no idea what I did all morning. Washed some dishes, made some coffee, but that is about it? Caught up online, I guess. Then around noon I met up with Jocelyn, Brian, Brian's son Henry, Amy, Omry, & Jordan (who had previously been typo'd by Amy as "Korean") at Perch. Brunchtime, you know? We all met up & chattered away like Chatty Cathy; sat in the back & had ourselves a nice little time. I had iced coffee & the baked eggs over leeks & rosemary foccacia. Jenny had, over the telephone, all but insisted that I order it; I reminded her that since she wasn't here it wasn't like she could snipe from my plate! I had a drag on Brian's Bloody Mary; really a sip is all I could ever want of a Bloody Mary; it is just too much. Mostly we spend brunch teasing Henry, because adults are all jerks. When we'd finished we went to the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. They tried to trick me into the Devillainizer, but I wasn't having it. We split up after that, & it just so happened that Brian & Jocelyn & Henry all ended up at my apartment for a little while. It started as a quest for a bathroom but ended up with Brian watching the first bit of the US of A versus England game of the World Cup. Meanwhile I fed Joceyln & Henry seltzer & bitters, gave Brian & Jocelyn a taste of kimchi, & played with my DnD miniatures with Henry. & now they've left & I'm just counting the ticks of the clock till I go pick up Jenny.
