again, been absent for a few days. oops.
but it's because i've been busy, which is good! i actually had some unexpected work come up last week, then gladly saw through various social commitments with some wonderful friends. i am currently holed up in rhode island, running away from reality. (aka visiting the folks.) i've been taking lots of pictures, and there will be lots of stories to come!
i just wanted to take a minute to share a great new york experience with you. this city is expensive, but it is not without its cheap charms... if you know where to find them.
there are usually free movie screenings in assorted parks during the summer. and it so happens that mccarren park in greenpoint showed the movie clueless recently! i ended up going with maeve and a few of her friends.
coincidentally, maeve and i both LOVE jax. specifically jax. i've never known any other person in the world to love them as much as i, so of course i picked up a couple bags for us to snack on during the movie. (what's your chip pick for movies??)
oh, and i have no idea why, but they chose to screen the movie on a concrete tennis court. this sort of hampered the experience a little, but still. let's not lose sight of the awesomeness that is a public screening of **CLUELESS!!**
one last thing that has nothing to do with the movie- but we ran into this abandoned child's chair on the way to the park. i really wanted it, but was not thrilled about the prospect of lugging it with me everywhere for five hours.
i still think about it wistfully, and this picture doesn't help. i trust that whoever has it now is happy, the lucky jerk.
hope everyone's has enjoyed their long weekend! what have y'all been up to?
