Monday Musings

I had a TRULY extraordinary weekend, and will be sure to blog about it when I have more time this evening. In the meantime, here are some thoughts that have swirled around in my mind today:
  • Sometimes dumplings just hit the spot, even though they used to make me ill when I was a child. I bought some for lunch from the Rickshaw truck and they made my day.
  • What makes a friendship worth saving? I have long held that if romantic relationships are allowed to reach a terminus then friendships can as well. I have certainly fallen out of love with friends in the same manner that I've fallen out of love with men. It's hard to quit anything, particularly when you love someone (be it romantic devotion or platonic admiration), but sometimes you have to cut your losses, be thankful for the memories, and move on to something new where your efforts are more likely to be appreciated and rewarded.
  • HOW MUCH LONGER CAN IT RAIN IN NYC? I am increasingly coming to terms with the idea that I might not be able to enjoy several of the things I love most about summer. All this, despite the fact that I am typically someone who LOVES rain and dreary weather (read: I desperately want to live in London and Seattle for the long-term during my lifetime). Wah.
  • I think BLC from The Company She Keeps is one of the most cheery, positive people in my life, and I haven't even met her in person! Her enthusiasm and warmth are undoubtedly contagious, and I thank her for every kind word she's ever sent my way.
  • My unadulterated JOY at planning an itinerary for my trip to Paris makes it clear to me that I am born to be a planner, organizer, early-adopter, and influencer. Now, to segue that revelation into a career...
  • What will I ever come up with between now and Wednesday to sufficiently surprise and celebrate my dearest Bunny for his birthday? For someone who prides herself on being a creative planner, I have procrastinated and have NO GOOD IDEAS to boot. Welcoming any and all suggestions...
  • I think I MUST HAVE these shoes. As LAB would say, they are soooo Chez 'Tinie. Parfait for Paris, non?


That's all for now...
Cxx.

Fantastic shoes. Now do tell. How does planning for a trip to Paris translate to being an early-adopter and influencer? Planning and organizing I get. A future post perhaps?

Boy oh boy do I agree about statement # 2.

You & Bunny are in my top 3 favorite couples. Thought you should know.

Sometimes friendships aren't worth saving.

I was best friends with this girl who after like 6 years of friendship (best friends) she pretty much dumped me for a guy. She'd call/text him on all her breaks at work and when she got home but could never contact me. I tried to explain it to her and she'd just make excuses (usually "I'm too tired"--yet she'd always talk to her BF). She'd literally not contact me for 2-3 months at a time...wouldn't even respond to my messages or whatever.

That friendship ended...and I still don't have a best friend.
