Not goodbye forever—don't get all dramatic on me now—but for a few days while we gallivant out of town to visit family. Also, don't be jealous because even though the time there will be wonderful (it always is) the drive to get there can only be described as: GAHGRRRSHOOTMENOWAHHHHH. And we're making the drive in my uncomfortable Saturn with a dog in the backseat who every now and then likes to crawl up and lay on her mom's lap while forgetting she is FORTY POUNDS.
But, again, the time there will be great. There will be eating and fireworks and naps and time with our nephew and all of those really good things holiday weekends are best known for. I hope your weekend is also filled with good things. Even if you're Canadian (hi to you!) because a weekend is a weekend, am I right?
Just a quick shopping aside: I need a laptop tote [that has a strap so not a laptop sleeve] before next Monday. Any great suggestions? Links? Old ones you aren't using? Kidding! Kind of! If I can't track one down, I may just have to carry mine around with me in my over-sized purse and glare at anyone who bumps into me too hard. I'm going to be such a HIT at BlogHer, can't you just tell?
And speaking of, I leave in ONE WEEK FROM MONDAY, OH MY LORD, WHERE DID THE TIME GO? I'm so excited (only a tiny bit nervous), but I do need to ask, quickly, if anyone can recommend a good lunch place for one afternoon I'll be near Union Square with a friend. I'm from the area, but my favorite restaurant when I left was Baker's Square. (Note: I was ten when I left. Baker's Square—what with all that pie—was pretty damn cool to a ten-year-old.)
Enjoy your weekend. Enjoy your hot dogs. Enjoy your family.
I'll be back before you can miss me.
