Some of you have written in wondering where I've been these last few days. Well, the answer is: Away from work. I took Monday and Tuesday off to sleep in and eat sushi, and then yesterday I took off for Connecticut for Thanksgiving.
I drove into CT with my mom whihc took two and half hours. The trip from NYC to Westport normally takes an hour, tops. But thanks to people who don't seem to know how to drive, we were held up by rubber necking on two accidents.
Once in CT Jen came and picked me up and we made the social rounds, first at Chris' house and then at a party. Good times. We left at around 1:00 AM and right before Exit 19 on the I-95 we were stalled by another accident that had just happened. The police and emergency crews weren't on the scene yet. What is going on that I could see three fresh accidents in less than 6 hours? Please pay attention on the roads, folks. You're not the only ones driving.
I'll be in the Westport/Norwalk/Fairfield area for the rest of the week. My plan is to eat, do work out tapes and read. There are a lot of dogs here in the Westport house and I've been spending some time with a pug named Yogi. There is also a wondeful tabby cat named Noozle.
So eat well today, my young friends. Afterwards go for a walk and try to burn some of it off.
