Unique New York

Just like a regular woman, only crankier.

This morning, I woke up with a rip-roaring case of otitis externa. The pain was so bad it was literally distracting me. So I did what any normal, 26 year-old would do. I called my mommy to fix it. she talked to dad, and they called in some meds for me. However, because I stayed home today, the closest CVS is in Manhattan. I am going to have to face the fact pretty soon that I will need to leave the house today.

In any case, because today was a sick day, I am compiling lists and addresses for our Save the Date cards. If there are any readers whose addresses I do not know (this means you, Natalie and Schaubee), and would like an invite or STD, please e-mailme with your mailing address. And that is all.

Sad News

Several months ago, the very same day that my ex broke up with me, I rescued a little Maltese-Pom mix from the Brooklyn CACC. She was sentenced to death, and the rescue org I got my Leo from asked me to help since I lived in South Brooklyn. I picked her up, and the little fluff ball immediately hopped up on my lap. I kept her overnight, groomed her and then proceeded to clean my house of ex-boyfriend remnants. The next morning, mom came in to help me grieve my previous relationship and help me find a new apartment. The white fluff and I met my mom at the airport, and then we took the dog to the orphanage to get vetted.

I picked her up again to help out the rescue because the woman who runs the org had gotten ill from chemo side effects. I took her to the vet. If I had the space and time, I would have adopted her. She was so sweet, and snuggly. All she wanted was a safe, quiet place to lay.

She got adopted out to a nice woman in Florida. The org arranged for the free transport, just like they did with Leo. Each person who has come into contact with this dog has fallen in love with her, including her new mom.

I just got the news that she just died. Apparently, she had some autoimmune thing where she stopped producing red blood cells. Totally sucks. She was a great dog. She was a far cry from the poodle-strosity that Russ and I watched together. I am sure that thing will live through several World Wars.
Sorry for the delay in an update. I have been busy with both work and play. Russ has been crazy busy with work. The week before last, my youngest brother, Luke, came to New York for the first time. He was adorable. We did the tourist-y thing all week, even though both Russ and I were a little unsure of exactly what to do. Props to my honey, because he really did a lot while Luke was here. Took him to Rockefeller Center, across the Brooklyn Bridge, took him to Times Square, among other things. Also, we both took Luke to the Empire State building, which was a first for me as well. In addition to all that, we also took him to see Avenue Q, and Russ arranged for a backstage tour for us. It was really awesome.

This last week, I drove to VA to celebrate my friend Nycole's birthday. It was a weekend filled with bargain shopping and good food. The only thing that sucked was that Russ had to stay home to get extra work done. Nonetheless, I am happy to have recently had a break in the action. AND, only two more weeks till spring break!
