Laura In the Coat

Thank you to [ profile] sinboy for putting up with Macy's today with me and helping me find the above coat -- very cute, on sale nearly 50% off -- although he did say when I first put it on that it looked "like a bathrobe or a dressing gown". Of course, after I'd flounced around a bit in the coat, he was more swayed and convinced into liking it. Hehe.

It has the most incredibly colorful lining which I'm not sure if I like or not, but it will definitely make me think twice before flashing.

Excitingly, I also got a scarf and silky soft gloves. I was tempted to look at boots, but thought better of it at the last minute. Additionally, [ profile] sinboy and I both got sort of tired of the perfumed horror and pre-emptive Christmas decorations.

We headed uptown on the A train and had dinner at the Garden Café with [ profile] rosefox. I really like the food and the vibe there; I've never had a bad meal there and the prices are decent. Dinner conversation was hilarious considering all of our backgrounds -- from Monkey Poop to Porn. I have to say I won't forget "Can you take me back to school now?"

Ohhh my. Such happiness. If only I didn't have so much work to do...

Had a nice dinner with [ profile] sinboy and I was given more reasons to think that Don Hertzfeldt should be my hero.

On our way back from dinner, [ profile] sinboy was mentioning how contented he was with his life, because he felt like he'd hit all of the bases. And we walked up the hill, and I thought about it, and I realized that I have so much to do.

For all the living I've done -- the places I've been, the things I've seen, the chimps I've tickled...

Well, I don't really have anything to show for it all. Photos? Videos? Funny stories? Amoebas? It's sort of like going 10 giant steps forward, but walking in place.

I guess too I survey my life and see how much I have to do and finish. School looms like this enormous mountain to be climbed. I've really been remiss in my studies of late. [ profile] woofa is coming to visit me from London this weekend, too. But overall, I think it behooves me to get back to the grindstone and study/catch up/etc.

I came back to the US and back to Columbia because I wanted to. I do actually love my classes. So, after this very exciting two days off on Monday and Tuesday, I will hopefully feel recommitted.

There's so much I want. I just don't even know where to start, sometimes.
