This little guy has been causing me all kinds of stress for the past couple of days. It seems to have decided to take residence in my apartment and now everytime I go out for anything, there it is. On the most part, it doesn't really bother me that he/she is around. My problem with it is that it keeps changing places on me and I get freaked out everytime.
If I had to say whether or not I have any problems with my apartment, I would have to say this is it: During the warmer months, I get my fair share of bugs (ie- crickets, bees, ladybugs, butterflies) which is way weird considering that I live on a 15th floor.
Whatever though. At least I don't get mice and roaches :)
Last night, Deanna, Dan and I went to the Finlandia party in celebration of their new Wild berry vodka. It took place at the Central Park Zoo and it was quite nice. Lots of pretty people. Had I known there would be pretty people, I would have at least worn make up. Oh well.
I got the recipe for a drink I had last night that I happened to enjoy very much. Here it goes:
Wonderful Wild Berries
Finlandia Wild Berry vodka
POM Wonderful Pomegranate juice
Perrier Carbonated Water
a twist of lime
Right up my alley :)
My brother Ivan is coming to NYC today and I am very excited about it. He is coming for the sole purpose of helping me pack so I can put my stuff into storage. I like that they think that I can't pack my own stuff :) It's occurred to me that I am going to miss this apartment a lot despite the fact that I've had so many issues here; however, if I could get used to Upper East Side living, I will be alright just about anywhere (outside of the Boroughs and these days I'm feeling Chelsea).
Today I'm going to go have lunch with my old boss (not Joe but Marlene). I used to work for a non-profit when I first came to NY and over the years I have tried to stay in touch and help out as much as I can. It's really a good thing to do. Those people struggle a lot.
For now though, I'm gonna get some coffee. I'm still sleepy.
