This afternoon, after finishing up some work, I met up with a friend from college who I haven’t seen in YEARS. She moved to LA and then Madrid after college, I moved to New York and well pretty much stayed in New York. Now she’s getting settled in good ole NYC; it was good to catch up. I may even see if I can interview her for the book proposal I’m supposedly writing right now. It’s so close to being done, and yet so not done!

After coffee I hit up my favorite of happy places: Trader Joe’s. Is there something wrong with me that I enjoy grocery shopping so much? I find the whole process so cathartic. Trader Joe’s is totally the Disney World of grocers. The frozen food aisle totally sets my heart aflutter! I even love the random banter with the cashiers. I stocked up on egg whites, frozen broccoli, meatless meatballs, low fat cheese, English muffins and coffee. I should be pretty happy for a while.

Honestly, I was pretty fried, having stayed up late last night hobnobbing, and getting up early this morning to work; I decided to take the night off and dedicate myself entirely to ‘Toy Story 3’ and a new borrowed book. I may even get my groove on with one of my Wii dancing games. I’m totally the epitome of cool. It’s okay to be jealous πŸ˜‰

Does anyone else count grocery shopping as one of their relaxing time activities?
