Thursday miscellany

So. Hi. I'm recovering from a cold.  I'm sniffly and rather...gurgly? I guess that's the word I'd use.  Gross, but descriptive.  

How awesome was Gwyneth on Glee the other night? I was impressed. For someone so seemingly aloof and unrelatable (have you SEEN her website, Goop? She says things like, "Now if you're unsure where to get powdered truffles for this recipe, I recommend popping on down to your local organic French food market.  My favorite is on the corner of Rue du Blah blah and the Champs-Elysees."), she was an utterly hilarious guest star--with a surprisingly excellent voice. It was the inclusion of the timeless "Conjunction Junction" and her Mary Todd Lincoln impression that put it over the edge for me.

Well, Wills is getting married. Another dream crushed. I received a text message from Monica, my high school best friend (with whom I reconnected over the summer), on Tuesday night, saying "I wish we could be together at this devastating time."

One week from now, I'll be visiting the DeJ side of the family in Georgia for Thanksgiving. Can. Not. Wait.

Autumn in New York

So. I literally started this post a month ago. At that point, we had just had SEVEN CONCERTS in EIGHT DAYS for work, oh my aching head, and the week before that I had made a quick getaway to visit Jules and Michael in Ithaca, NY. It was a whirlwind trip, and I had two requests: apples and fall leaves.
