this weekend was pure gold. a time to, as my friends like to say, lady out (instead of you bro out, you see). tina and i met up for a day of brunch and shopping, which we kicked off with a bottle of champagne and donuts. and as we lingered near the end of brunch we thought - well, why not order dessert, too. dessert at brunch! how glorious! besides this little adventure, the rest of my weekend was decidedly low-key: painting my nails, going to the gym, watching old law and order: svu episodes. i've been slowly but surely making my way through the all the seasons (there are 14 on hulu, it's going to take some time), and so far my favorite episode was the one about the danger of internet chatrooms. it included the iconic line, "don, two years ago i didn't know my ass from windows 95", and the episode ended with the warning that "there are 3.4 million ANONYMOUS users in a chatroom at any given time". oh law and order. so sweet, so naive.
and now here we are. back at monday. but i can feel spring starting to make it's way to us (disregarding the snow forecast on wednesday) and i can't wait. so yes, it's monday, but let's hope it's a little warmer in all of our corners of the world. see you soon spring!
