The humidity in New York this summer has been disgusting. Without an AC, I rely on my Holmes Power 20 Fan, cold showers, nightfall and friends’ couches (in the AC!!!) when it becomes unbearable. As my pal, Duane so aptly put it, “New York is as hot as an armpit.” It is. Left work at 6:30 today. Went to Photobar on 28th street and had two passport photos made. I made a weird face but the guy said it was perfect because there was no glare on my glasses and my mouth was closed. I gave him the go ahead based on his expertise. I’ll be taking a roadtrip through London, Wales and Ireland with my pal, Amber, her sister, Callie, Callie’s husband, Martin and their two yapping dogs at the end of September. Amber’s sis works for an airline so invited us over using her free vouchers! (which in my book is like winning the lotto!) I’m looking forward to this trip. We’ll be driving the backroads and staying in some countryside cottages and then pitching tents for a few nights as well. So…dusting off ye olde passport and sending it in for a newbie. Hate to say it, but i’m ready for the Fall. bring in the cooler temps! bring in the new sights! bring me a new start!
