My little sister (sorority) and I decided to do dinner. On my way to the train station, I decided to stop by Starbucks, where I met the unfortunate realization that I left my credit card at home. I had to walk back to my house to get my card. On my way home, a torrential downpour started. Of course, I was wearing flip flops and had no baseball cap or umbrella on me. In addition to this, my phone got soaked in the downpour and stopped working. When I finally made it back to the train for dinner, I was running 5 minutes late and managed to step into a puddle and get more soaked. Dinner was absolutely amazing. We went to Q2, a thai place. I've been there once before with my mom and I love it. The prices are good, the food and drinks are amazing, and it's far enough north of the Theater District, that you can avoid tourists and the hell on earth that is Times Square, but still make it to your show some time. If you are in NYC and need a restaurant in the Theater District, I highly recommend it. After dinner, we decided to stop by Ricky's. Ricky's is a weird chain in NYC which is half pharmacy, half not. They do not sell any meds there, but they do have a great selection of hair and bath/beauty products, along with a sometimes extensive array of condoms and sex toys. They also sell fun gift items there. Kelly and I decided to go in and see if they had Schlong Boy there. They didn't. But we had fun playing with their nail polish and bouncy ball displays and I bought a card for KMH, so not all was lost. After dinner, we went for drinks and then got baked goods and parted ways. (She got a cheesecake, I got a cannoli.)
My phone had started working by this point so I figured I would be fine. I use my cell phone as my alarm and basically my life line (facebook, twitter, internet, personal, sorority, and blog emails, and my 20,000 nightly texts to KMH) and the thought of having to go without it is just scary to me. I woke up this morning feeling refreshed with the sun in my face and thought, "wow, I woke up before my alarm." I then looked over at my cell phone and realized that it had turned itself off in the middle of the night. When I turned it on, I saw that it was 8:01, I leave my house at 7:35 at the latest to get to work. I had to take a very expensive cab ride to get to work.
After sending emails, facebook messages, and calling all of the guests that I do have phone numbers for to get rsvps for JMK's shower, I am still missing rsvps from a few people. Seriously, what is wrong with people? However, at this point, I need to order favors and have enough rsvps yes that I know roughly how many to order for. A while ago, JMK picked these to be her favors:
Now they are backordered on every single favor site I have looked at, and will ship on August 11th at the earliest. The shower is August 9th, so that doesn't exactly help me. I am now trying to find new favors. Ones that preferably don't cost a lot per person since I am paying for the entire shower by myself, and that can get to me by August 8th.
