Flavors: Friday, October 19th
I have now been inside for two whole freaking weeks.
So, erm- what’s the weather been like? Is it nice outside? It’s been nice in here too. My mom sent over a pair of fleece sweatpant that are super comfortable, and I’ve been wearing them for a few days now.
They’re, um, you know, really great.
Let’s see…….hmmmmm…….oh! I caught up on a whole bunch of tv shows that I haven’t had time to watch for years, like Damages and RuPaul’s Drag Race. Kinda sucks though because everyone else has already seen them, so I can’t really go on Facebook and talk about my reactions and feelings with other people. My cats watch with me, but I’m totally not at that stage of cabin fever where they can talk.
I’m writing a lot, which is good. This time next year the book will be out, and I’ll hopefully be on tour somewhere. I hope I get to go to Pittsburgh, because I was there once ten years ago and I really liked it. I remember grabbing lunch at a ChiChi’s where my waitress decided she needed to sit with me because she was really impressed that I was from Brooklyn, and in exchange for me telling her all about what it was like to live there, she told me about her methadone addiction. I had a chimichanga. Is that a real Spanish word? Chimichanga? I think the more I say it, the more made up it sounds. “Chimichanga”. CHIMMEY-CHON-GAAAAHHHH.
I bought a new shirt, too! Off the internet! It’s really nice. I’m looking forward to wearing in a week or so when I’m off my major bedrest.
Guys- go outside today and ENJOY THE CRAP OUT OF IT. Because you don’t understand how lucky you are to do such simple, stupid things- like going to the grocery store to get an avocado, or ridiculous stupid minutia that I totally miss.
One more week. One more week and I’m going to be up and out of bed. I’m going to go buy an avocado, go have a latte, then maybe hit the post office and mail the f**k out of some letters. It’s going to be amazing.
Now plot about how you’re going to leave your desk today and go get yourself a brownie, or a whoopie pie, or one of these cupcakes. And really enjoy every single second of today, because, well, it’s only going to be today once!
