Weekend recap

So compared to my wild 'n' crazy bachelorette party last weekend, this one was a bit of a snore. I'm still not feeling 100 percent, so I kept it totally low-key. The last two days have been filled with sleep, movies and Subway--my favorite things!

Friday night Luke and I had a very wallet-friendly and tasty meal at Subway (we split a $5 footlong). Then we went to see a Woody Allen flick, Whatever Works, with Larry David and Evan Rachel Wood. I had read a few bad reviews, but didn't pay too much attention to them. Come on, if you're seeing something with Larry David in it, you know exactly what you're going to get. LARRY DAVID. I wouldn't say it's the movie of the summer, but it was definitely entertaining. The only thing missing was Cheryl Hines. Love her!

Anywho, Saturday and Sunday afternoon I did my Glamour reporting. Basically, I just walk up to random guys on the street and interview them about their dating and sex lives. The questions I asked weren't too invasive this time around, thank goodness. One time I had to ask guys about their "go-to sex move." Those were some interesting conversations!

I am so bummed that my camera died on me this weekend. Some of the most interesting characters can be found in the plaza-like area (Union Square for you New Yorkers) where we conduct our reporting. I don't have pics, but just to give you an idea, I saw: lots of shirtless bums getting their tan-on; hippie kids holding signs that said "FREE HUGS"; a freaky looking psychic that was giving free readings and a hula hooper that was contorting her body in the most unimaginable ways possible.

We finished early today, so I joined two Glamour editors (Hi Brittany and Jess!) to see Julie and Julia. I know it wasn't too long ago that I was crying like a baby about not having the money to go to the movies much anymore, and here I did it twice in one weekend! I felt a wee bit guilty about spending $12.50 on the ticket, but the only other things I bought this weekend were (another) $5 footlong and a $10 metrocard. Plus, I was just dying to see the movie. When I went to the American History museum in DC a couple months ago, I spent 1 1/2 of the 2 hours I was there in the Julia Child exhibit. She's so fascinating!

OK, now I'm rambling. Luke is making salmon and salad for dinner as we speak and we're getting ready to watch No Country For Old Men. Geeze, I'm starting to put myself to sleep with this chilled-out weekend! I feel like I typically live like either a 21-year old or a 40 year-old, with not a lot in between! ha

How was your weekend? Hopefully more eventful than mine!


  1. I was in Charleston for the weekend finishing up wedding stuff! Got a lot done, but also did some touristy things, so I will have some suggestions for you and Luke for September!

  2. Yes, give me suggestions! I would be perfectly content to lay on the beach all day, but we all know that Luke needs to explore and feed his brain at any opportunity he gets! :)

  3. well, i hope your cam works soon and then you can post those interesting characters you met at Union Square :)
