Man, I screwed this ICLW stuff up with my trip. I have approximately one million unread posts to read and I didn't really comment yesterday. I got in my five plus one, but quit there. So I got the letter, but not the spirit.
My trip to NYC was good. I got there Saturday morning and my best friend L and I had brunch and then went to Ikea. I got some cute curtains and a bedspread. Of course, since I was flying I couldn't buy all the stuff I wanted to, which was probably a good thing. We went back to her apartment and put together a coffee table then went to watch Real Genius at her friend's place. Terrible movie, but Val Kilmer was hot back in the day.
Went out for beer, got home at 3:30am and slept. We made brunch at her house on Sunday, then I went to dinner with my aunt and uncle. My cousin just graduated from college and apparently decided he wanted to upgrade his car from the BM.W he got in high school. (They have gobs of money.) So they got him an Audi. Apparently, they decided to give the BMW to one of their other nieces. KBB value of $23,000.
I seriously wish they hadn't told me that. It was very nice of them to give me $50 for cab fare after paying for a fancy dinner but after hearing that story I wanted to ask for ten grand. Greedy of me, I know, but geeze. This niece could use great gifts too!
Went to a going away party for one of L's friends who's moving back to Israel, then went to bed. Came back this morning.
And now A has gone. He takes the bar tomorrow and the next day.
If you have any pull with G*d or the people in charge of grading this puppy, I'd appreciate some help...
