yay! blogger works again!

since my batteries ran out at the party in nyc, all i could take a pic of was the food. so here it is, in all its glory. there were only 7 of us - we had so many leftovers....

here is the coat i bought at french connection. i wanted a long coat and was smitten with this one as soon as i walked in the store. it looked fantasic, but then not so much when i brought it home. i had plans to get all your opinions before deciding whether to keep it, but then just made up my own mind. it was very pricy and even if i did take off those sholder thingies, it would still be a little too army for me.

and this was my face when josh told me i looked fat in the coat (he was kidding.. i think). it looks EXACTLY like a picture of me when i was a baby. as soon as i find said pic, i will try and scan it so you all can see what i mean. and you can kind of see the new bangs, but not really.

thank you for everyone who called (internationally even!) and sent emails and cards! i had a very low key birthday. i think the highlight so far has been the lipgloss bracelet that came with the little mermaid dvd josh got me. hehe.

5 more years til 30!

so i know i have been bad about updating, but i usually update at work and work has been exTREMEly busy lately and i haven't had time to read my TWoP summaries, let alone blog. and i try to avoid the computer once i get home, bc i have been staring at one all day and would rather fry my eyes on the tv, so no blogging at home.

but then last night, i was all in the mood to blog and BLOGGER DIDNT WORK. so there. i tried.

here is a quick recap of the last few weeks. hopefully i can get on at home soon and upload some pics.

allie's awesome bachlorette party in nyc. had a blast cooking, running around, seeing steve, then riding around in a limo, going back to dip (so so good... ) and then loosing my voice to karaoke. we had a great group and i think everyone had a good time. i certainly did.

crazy week at work.

diwali lunch with the fam and the fam-in-laws. a few awkward moments, but all in all it went well. divya, josh and i cleaned up when it came to presents! and josh's mom got me some very cute stuff from ann taylor - so now i have part of an outfit for allie's wedding! yay! then the sunday of that weekend josh and i lazed around, went grocery shopping and did ALL the prep work for the meals that week. which was good because....

i had another crazy week at work. i have been put in charge of a project and even have temps doing all the boring work for me (yay!) so i get to be the boss. but the deadline is looming and things are getting crazy. it will all be over in about two weeks, and things will slow down next week.

then last weekend, josh was sick and we had his mom and her boyfriend over for lunch saturday, which was nice. then my sister called and said she was sick, which made me not go to a sweet 16 party in sharon bc i wanted to look after my sick puppies. then sunday book club and some pumpkin carving!

oh, somewhere in there, i got a new hair cut. bangs, baby. i will, of course, post pics of the new do and you guys can all weigh in on whether they should stay or go.

then I got sick - stupid josh. and i was really bad yesterday, but now i am recovering fast only have a slight wheeze and dry lips.

this weekend is dinner out for my bday (yay!) the ballet with laura, demitri martin sat night, jason's party sat night and picking up my mom from logan and drinks with my sister on sunday. NEXT weekend, i am doing NOTHING. that last month or so warrents a social break.

pics to come soon - hopefully.

oh - ramdom thought - who picks their NOSE on the SUBWAY? i mean, really people. really.

47. to autumn


SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.


Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,
Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;
Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,
Drows’d with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
Steady thy laden head across a brook;
Or by a cyder-press, with patient look,
Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours.


Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,—
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.
