Okay, I'm kidding, but not far off. Man my head feels like it's going to explode. My ear is killing me and the humidity doesn't help.
But the good news is: I get to go to New York for the weekend. How fun will that be? I haven't been there since I was 4 or 5 and don't remember much of that. I guess we lived there for six months when my Dad drove us cross country from Oregon to New York in his (and yes, he does still own it) Bluebird School Bus. Ironically, these are my only memories of NYC:
1)Being scared to death on top of the Empire State Building.
2)Passing the Statue of Liberty by ferry and thinking how weird that the lady was green and wondering how she got here from France.
3)Being parked outside the World Trade Center in the schoolbus in the middle of the night and my dad saying. "This is a very important building for the US. It holds a lot of power." I looked at it in awe wondering why. My dad isn't exactly a corporate guy so I didn't really know what he meant.
I can't wait to go. Maybe that will make me feel better. :-/ Krispie Kremes have made my mood better but not this nasty cold.
Tonight I get to go get measured up for a shalwar khameez
. Fun. And should be interesting as I've never been tailored. I guess I get to see the final product when I go to Toronto next month.
I'm almost finished with the current book, Believing as Ourselves which has been very good. I have about 25 pages left.
