so, I was jostling down Washington Ave with my poor, fragile toe, in a huff (I’d been walking about two blocks in the wrong direction(because I’m a retard) then turned around, unable to walk my stellar new york pace due to… The Toe, when I stumbled and fell, my toe causing a gruesome mess that I will not barage any with. There I was stranded, unable to walk, blood leaking, no cell phone, closer to my starting point than my destination (first day of work(daycare childrens)). I made quite a spectacle of myself as I balled my eyes out not caring that I looked crazy and homeless. So, somehow I managed to literally hobble back to campus, eventually, reaching the nurse who was so nice and sympathetic (she’d had a few goes with her toe as well). I pretended in my mind with my yes clamped shut, that it was just like a pedicure. it hurt like a mother but now my day is gold. and I start work next week for sure. +I rewarded myself with some $5 homemade earrings. My toe is doing better—all snug in one whole roll of gauze.
happy day. For better or worse. No inbetween greys this time.
nothing a beautiful mocha can’t fix. as always.
Halloween looms ahead! and I…
Can NOT wait to be spooked. just wish the pumpkins could come visit NY.
that’s me. the sweet grumpy old man just passing through his season.
I love this weather for real, but I’m sick. poo poo. I’ve decided for Halloween I shall be a poor non-princess Cinderella who has just finished cleaning the chimney.
New York is my love and everything but, it does not do autumn justice. I need to go somewhere where all I see are the meadows, where I only hear the wind and the rivers. i can tuck into a good book beside a frosty window, and brew some constant comment. aaahhh…I am an old lady for ever. + now i’m too paranoid to walk the streets on halloween upon hearing about prowling gangs and such. It really breaks my heart, it’s so depressing. but i can’t bear the thought of a quiet, indoor halloween, ok, maybe indoor…but I must have a little danger.. is it worth getting shot over? what scares me most is just how much shit we are capable of. what am I supposed to do about it?
