I am pleased to announce the arrival of.........

a bouncing baby Volvo.

I finally have a new car.

I don't think I realized how sad the Honda was until I started driving the Volvo. I really should be ashamed of how I took care of it but I'm not. I should have bought something a long time ago but I loved not having a car payment. I used the money i would have spent on a car on important things like handbags, trips to The Kura Door and plants at Cactus and Tropicals.

The Honda is now in the Kara parking lot and I have to say I feel a little bit sad about just leaving it there......unloved. The Honda and I have many good memories. Like the time I got stuck in the snow at the cabin and while trying to get out of the snowbank I just about ran over myself, right over my head to be exact....long really weird story. And of course there was the time after the worst week ever I went to the cabin to spend a peaceful weekend alone. On Sunday before driving home I drove the Honda down to the trash dumpster, got out of the car and walked around to the get the trash bags from the back seat and the door was locked. I walked around to the other doors and they were all locked. Yes the devil dog LuLu Belle had jumped on the lock and locked herself, Roma, and my phone in the car. Lucky for them the car was running and the a/c was on. Being a late Sunday afternoon there was no one around and I had no idea what to do. Finally someone came to the dumpster and let me use their cell phone. I was able to find a locksmith who would travel to the cabin and help me. Good thing I had all of my birthday money in my handbag to pay the locksmith....happy birthday to me. So much for my peaceful weekend. Oh the momories the Honda and I have.

So long little Honda we have had a great 200,000 miles togther.

I hate you iphone

This is my new iphone. I am trying to activate it and it is driving me crazy...I have a bottle of Kirsch left over from a fondue party I had a month ago and I am thinking I might need to drag it out and have a serious drink! Help!


Mary Poppins - Tony 2007 Performance

LOVE IT! I am still slightly disturbed by the silver dancing statues.

Stuck On The Runway

So we got to JFK and after a delay of about an hour and 2 gate changes we got on our airplane. We taxied out to the runway and it started raining harder than I have ever seen. The runway looked like a river. The pilot got on the intercom and told us that the airport and all of the runways were closed and that the spot we were in was our new home for awhile. We sat there for two hours.....awesome. The lady in the seat behind me started singing hymns in spanish. I think she started out singing Nearer My God To Thee which was a little too Titanic for me. It was freaking me out and she was really loud so I put on my headphones and played around with the music on the Delta in flight entertainment system.....which by the way is very cool. I found this song and listened to it about 15 times. I love it.........(video below)

New York City

I just got back from 6 days in the Big Apple. I had such a great time. I went out to the Fancy Food Show with Angie, Holly and Ashley.
Oh course, my favorite part of going to New York is the food.
We ate at a great place in Union Square called the Union Square Cafe. Holly ordered a green pea salad with mint. It was one of the best things I have ever tried.
I love spending time in the Union Square area. It is one of the most peaceful places I have found in the city. And of course there is great shopping and food to be found all around Union Sqaure. Angie and Holly found this great cafe called Tisserie. They brought the most beautiful pastries back to the hotel and let me try a few of them. They were almost too beautiful to eat.
Our first night in the city we ate dinner in Little Itay and finished the evening with gelato and then Rice Pudding at Rice to Riches in Soho.

We also ate at one of our favorite places Ruby Foos in Times Square. Angie could not pass up trying a fish egg from Holly's sushi assortment. Yummo.

The highlight of this visit into the city was going to Mary Poppins. I loved it!! It might be the best show I have ever seen. It was even better because of all of the little kids in the audience. They were so fun to watch. When Mary Poppins came flying back at the begining of the second act they all gasped and started cheering. I have to confess my eyes filled with a few little tears as Mary Poppins flew over the audience at the end. I am such a dork.

On one of our final nights in the city we walked around Wall Street, ate dinner at the South Street Seaport, where we had the greatest view of the Brooklyn Bridge, and then rode on the Staten Island Ferry. It was so beautiful.
