Friday I postponed lunch plans and spent all day working on G&T #4, getting it ready for deadline on the 1st, then hied myself off to a friend's surprise birthday celebration (and we actually kept it a surprise! I knew the 11-year-old could do it but was less certain about the 45-year-old...)
Saturday I spent the early morning hours working, then hied off into Manhattan to meet up with neadods
and Mo (who has an LJ I'm sure but I'm blanking on it), who were in to see a show. There was lunch at Molyvos, where the conversation ranged from Adult Financial Stuff to discussions of technology and from there to AO3 pr0n (as one does), and then I went off to upgrade my tech while they saw their show (an off-Broadway performance that was reportedly quite wonderful), and then there was drinks in an outdoor atrium where conversation was wide-ranging again and may have involved some very long-term planning for 2016.... (and also the realization of how long we've all known each other, which is both wonderful and...kinda depressing. I'm HOW old again?).
And then I aimed them at their bus, and went home to...well, I was supposed to get more work done. I may have indulged in a few more episodes of the SPN summer rewatch.
Sunday I spent the morning working on G&T #4 again, then headed off to JFK to reclaim my brother-in-law and sister from where I'd left them three weeks ago. Have I mentioned recently how much I hate JFK Airport? Because OMFG the hate is legendary (and my sister's first words, on meeting up with the car, was "oh my god this airport is horrible!"). But they have been collected, and reclaimed their car, and I am once again a properly car-less New Yorker as god and the mayor intended.
[having a car is nice. but when you use it once a week, at most, 'nice' doesn't offset the cost or the annoyances, IME]
And now I am going to feed the cats, make some dinner, and go back to work. Because the book's due on the 1st, and my brain's screaming "no we need to do one more pass! Maybe two!"
