I spent yet another weekend travelling to NYC - that's three of the last four. It is amazing to have that city this close to me.

This time, we went because [livejournal.com profile] lunatopaz (who hasn't posted to lj in years) came to visit us and we decided we should go and see a show. We spent most of Saturday wandering around NJ -- farmers market, then Princeton. We headed into the city and did a drive by on Ippudo, but at 4:40, the line was already 30 or so people long, and I wasn't in the mood for standing outside for too long. So, we drove to Pommes Frites instead and grabbed delicious fries and dipping sauces. We then headed toward the Theater District and ended up eating at Smyrna, a Turkish place. It was fine, reasonably priced, but nothing overly memorable. We had hummus, falafel, baba ganouj, labneh, some eggplant salad thing, and a spinach/tomato sauce/rice dish, all with delicious Turkish bread. 

The main event was going to see Peter and the Starcatcher, which meant adding a new theater (the Brooks Atkinson) to the list of venues I've visited. Thanks to playbill.com, the seats were reasonably priced, and the views were great - center of the second mezzanine, but that was really just the sixth row up in the mezz. In general, I liked the show. It was well paced, the humor was great, the staging was well done. There were places where I was a little sad that they were injecting so much of current popular culture into the script. it's harder to escape into a show when it keeps reminding you of things in the current day. The solitary female actor among quite a few males felt unbalanced, though it wasn't so far off from the portrayal in the book. Plus, I liked the way that the book treated the story quite a lot better, but there would've been no way to stage the book well as it was written. But, overall, I'm glad that I saw it, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the book series.

Yesterday we were in near constant motion, so today I look forward to sitting on the couch. Tim is making tomato sauce, and he made baked apple pancake for breakfast. There is lots of leftover cornbread that I'll use as a base for my dinner, along with some italian sausage and the tomato sauce. I suppose I should do some planning for the rest of the week soon, too.
I changed my closet from summer clothes to winter-ish this weekend. All of the linen is replaced by cashmere. The weather has responded in turn and it's only supposed to be in the sixties today, which means a whole new host of wardrobe choices to consider. The new shorter hair also dries quickly, which means less being chilly after getting out of the shower.

This weekend was packed, especially considering my upset stomach that I had to nurse throughout. I slowly built it up to eating normal food, and didn't die after having Indian buffet on Sunday, so I guess I'm cured for the time being. I wish I didn't have to go back to the germ capsule that is my office -- it seems like everyone has been out sick for at least a day in the past week or so, and I know we'll just keep passing it around all semester.

Saturday there was Scrabble, with a very different group than I usually hang out with, which was fun. It was a good mix, and we played a round robin tournament for fun (and cash prizes). I was a game up on the field at the end, but lost two in a row to come in second. Our grouping of six might have finished in the same order that we were seeded in the field, based on ratings. At the least, 1-3 seeded placed 1-3, respectively. The Scrabble was fun, but the food was even more memorable, and the Sox won for a change.

Sunday we picked up the meat CSA (spare ribs, bacon ends, hot italian sausage, ham, ground beef...), brought it home and threw it in the freezer (less the spare ribs, which I'll braise this week), and then headed back out to Copley. We had free tickets to see a local production of Zanna, Don't! - a show that bills itself as the Gay High School Musical. It was a lot of fun, and I particularly enjoyed the adorable hipster/DJ character. I've been humming the songs ever since. I got some more yarn and roving dyed yesterday evening, had golden fennel pasta and onion foccacia for dinner, and stayed up too late watching the Sox lose.

And now, coffee and half an hour of Scrabble flashcards. I screwed up one of my databases and had to start from scratch, which means an extra 1500 cards on top of what I already had to do. Luckily, I have the flight to St. Louis on Thursday to catch up.
