You know, I finally caved in to peer pressure and started this thing as the best way to keep in touch with my friendmerimask, because seeing her once a year was insufficient. (Incidentally, in this case absence does not make the heart grow fonder – I like her even more than I did when I only saw her once a year!) Somehow it seems to have metamorphosed into an ongoing journal of our redecorating. I’m reluctant to call it renovating, because it seems to me that "renovating" should involve the building or removal of structures. The only thing of that sort that has happened was the removal of the late, unlamented cage bar in the kitchen, leaving me scratching my head over six holes in the tile floor and a very large, very poorly done patch in the kitchen ceiling. But I digress.
I’m hoping that the optometrist will have my new supply of contacts in before we go to Philly on the 18th. We’re going to see the King Tut exhibit, and maybe spend a little time at the Museum of Art. It’s not a cheap trip, but it’ll be worth it. My friendvynehornis going with us, and she knows some restaurants down there. The hotel looks like it’s located IN a business park, so I’m expecting something fairly no frills, and probably pretty empty. The nice ones were all $200 a night – I’m not feeling that affluent, and we wanted to stay two nights. Our entry tickets for the exhibit are for 8:30, so we’ll see how the surly non-morning person does.
