New Year’s Day 2011

The first day of 2011 was a very pleasant one.  Yesterday Rob and I stayed in and did a thorough cleaning of the apartment. This included moving furniture away from the walls and attacking the dust bunny colonies that were in hiding. In the evening, we opened a split of a champagne from 1989. For …

St. John’s and hamentash

I had coffee and a hamentash at the Hungarian Pastry Shop with Fabulous Girl. It was nice to catch up with her and feel like a grownup with a social life, you know? Afterwards, we went into the cathedral of St. John the Divine, which I’d somehow not managed to go into yet, despite living …
