Weekend Things

Posted on


Happy Sunday, guys. Hope you’re enjoying a lovely weekend. I was feeling a little under the weather on Saturday, but I’m convinced there are few things 10 hours of sleep can’t fix. The fog and low-grade fever are gone and the sun even came out a little Sunday morning.

Friday I went to hear some live music in Astoria and had dinner at 5 Napkin Burger beforehand. I think my body might be trying to readjust after pulling one of those “I’m just gonna lose a few pounds because I can” the way it does whenever I go through a major life change—it would be silly for me to discount the end of the internship as a big deal. I ate every bit of my meal (which would normally fill me up) and then was hungry again an hour later.

Saturday I was feeling crappy so I laid low. Basically the only reason I left the apartment was to go check out a reflexology place near me. Holy s*** it was amazing. It hurt so good it kind of tickled. I was in bed by 10 pm after giving the first couple episodes of Downton Abbey a try on Amazon Prime free streaming. I think I get what all the fuss is about, but not sure I’ll stick with it.

This morning I woke up feeling a lot better, though I’m kind of impressed by my own under-eye circles. I also spilled boiling water on my hand making tea but was fine. Hey, whatever works. I did some good stretching and then when to pick up a baguette, brie, and Bordeaux for an Oscars party tonight. I’ve never been to one, since I’ve always had to get up at the ass-crack of dawn on Monday, so I’m looking forward to having a good time.

What have you been up to this weekend? Have you ever been to an Oscars party?

      Here’s what wikipedia has to say about reflexology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reflexology
      Every time I catch myself complaining about how weird/scared/anchorless I feel about not having a full-time gig yet, I think of all those mornings I got up at 4:45 and enjoy it.

    I am all about the Oscar parties. Hope you had a great time and that you’re still sleeping now. ; )

      Thanks! Yeah, I wish I was still sleeping, but 4.5 hours of sleep is still better than none. Hope you had fun watching the awards last night 🙂
