Oh, my goodness, it's been a crazy few months. My company's been going through a lot of very public turmoil, which led to several sleepless nights imagining I'd be laid off, and then, just when we turned a corner and I learned I had nothing to worry about on that front, my teammate abruptly quit and moved. So I've been doing her job as well as my own for almost a month now, and I'm overwhelmed. I've also had all sorts of health stuff happening, which is still ongoing and still incredibly annoying. But! The weather is starting to improve (sloooooooowly), and I've been getting to go see some amazing theater (people in New York - GO SEE VIOLET. TRUST ME.) and the subways, while still screwy, have been a little less crowded in the mornings, which means I'm actually able to read on my way to and from work (I just reread the first ten books of Gillian Roberts's Amanda Pepper murder-mystery series - so delightful!). And I have some trips coming up - one to Sicily in June, and one to London in September - that I'm very much looking forward to.
But in here-and-now news, here goes. I took alizarin_nyc with me to the Paley Center (NYC)'s panel on Fargo for Martin Freeman reasons, and we had a delightful time. As you can see, he talks with his hands, was amused much of the time, has a favorite Fargo pose, and wears very snazzy socks.
And the following morning, I went with my mother to the New York Botanical Garden's annual Orchid Show, which has become an annual event for us too. We had a fantastic time - it was a gorgeous day, perfect for wandering. I took even more pictures there than I had the night before, and here are some of the most striking.
And tomorrow I get to take my BFF and his wife out for his birthday!
How are you all doing?
