Fred in my head

If you're not reading AmbivaBlog you should! Honest, intelligent, human, warm and inquisitive -- what more do you want? Her post about dancing the other day naturally brings forth the very charming "My Shining Hour" from 1942's "The Sky's the Limit" with the then 17-year old Joan Leslie:

Do yourself a favor. Go find a light fantastic and trip it, will ya?

New York!

It's been awhile since the Stuffin has been on a trip... but we went to NYC last week for a brief visit, thanks to my friend "Pete" Kadur and his Sig Oth + Childrens! So we had to go back to Carmine's. Here's to you PVK:

What do you think, the new FS picture?

Here we are in the same shot. Isn't Pete handsome? or just cute? or looking like he's trying to sell me something?

There's more to life than alcohol abuse. Not much more, but there is eating! Thus, a menu!

All of New York was worried about their stock portfolios that week so I, too, had to pretend I cared. Note the gravitas -- or perhaps merely heartburn!

Alas, that's all I got (well, maybe more later :) ) as my camera came back from being fixed two days late for me to take it! Ah, well, next trip!

Some girl I know watched the debates...

How ugly a girl must I be as a voter when the two guys plying me with drinks, trying to seal the deal, do so with less enthusiasm as an octogenarian on a cruise?

One swore that he would pull out early and who believes that!?
Besides, I think he thought that that was what I wanted to hear, but how much of a difference would that make anyway? His delivery wasn't as smooth as the bankers and hippies hanging around him, and not as sincere. His grinning friend with the hair plugs didn't make him any sexier.

The other swore that even though the last guy from his office broke my heart and made me cry, he was different, and that "Change was coming", which, as a pick up line, is...uninspiring.
He swore I'd take home more money when he was through, but a 10% discount coupon for boat insurance from AIG and a partial ownership in a timeshare in Reykjavik is not what I would call "more."

His cute-as-a-bug daughter? --granddaughter?-- might wink at me and have me throw him a pity pout, but only once, and not again, even four years from now.

The only Change that is coming in this girls life is my pension, which I'll find between the cushions of the sofa, I think.
