life in and around NYC is insane

another this and that

Well, the people of France can officially say that they are smarter than Americans...their new president will do them proud.

We did not have Mexican takeout for Cinco de Mayo,  Instead, we waited until Saturday and went to one of our favorites, Margarita's, because besides excellent food, they also have live mariachi music.    We had queso fundido (can't go wrong with melted cheese), Drew had paella and I had fajitas.  I'm not crazy about tequila, so we drank sangria instead.

So our Friday takeout was from the deli.  Jewish soul food -- pastrami, corned beef, knishes, pierogi, kasha varnishkes ...

Yeah, Guardians of the Galaxy lived up to the hype.  Very funny and enjoyable movie.  The original was on TV last night, I turned it on, but fell asleep halfway through.

The weather has been unseasonably cool for the last few days.  Hard to believe that Memorial Day and the start of the summer season is just three weeks away.  Over the weekend I reminded Drew that he should pick up his pool pass so that we can use the community pool again this summer.

He's already stocking up for the annual Memorial Day barbecue.  Looking forward to it.

Conversation with Jen yesterday:

Me:  Becca still hasn't told me what happened between her and her boyfriend...

Jen:  She doesn't want to talk about it.

Me:  I guess all I really need to know is that he hurt my baby and I want to kill him.

Jen:  That about sums it up.

Aren't some American real smart for voting for President Trump. The food does sound yummy. I wish dislike more food. I might not have this weight trouble.
Coffee is on

Yep, France wins this year.

Your job is to be supportive. Becca will talk when she's ready.
