This week has been both a quick and a slow one. Up to Boston on Monday, back home on Tuesday, down to New York yesterday…and here I am. J’s having an incredibly busy week at work though, so I have free range of his room.
I guess I have some catching up to do. As I no longer recall the exact happenings of prior weekends, random photos will have to suffice.
Although our Groupon and Groupon-esque purchases have decreased to nearly non-existent of late, J and I still have a few that we need to use up. Including one for 16 Handles that was to expire two weekends ago.
And one for Dominique Ansel, where we picked up three [decidely not French portion size] croissants – one plain, a ham and cheese, and a pain au chocolat. What beats sitting on a bench outside a pastry shop munching on flakey, buttery goodness while people-watching on a warm spring day? (Isn’t it amazing how many prepositions populate the previous sentence?)
Oh! And I have a funny story from my time in Boston awhile ago. While there, I drank a gazillion bottles of bottled water. One day, I noticed a bottle deposit machine in a Stop and Shop. Thinking I’d do the earth some good and get some pocket change in the process, I collected a paper bag full of bottles [Exhibit 1].
Turns out, none of the plastic bottles count. The picky machine decided that only the big brown glass bottle merited paying up a few cents. Five, to be exact [Exhibit 2].
And lastly, some pictures I thought my camera ate, but turned out to be taken with Jason’s phone camera.
