Bummin' around day 2

After being sick for a week and a half with what felt like the Pneumonia I had last year around this time and then having a really busy week back at work, it has felt so good to sloth around my apartment for two days. Ohhhhhh does it feel good! Yesterday I started to feel a little glutenous, but then I thought....GLUTENY? WHO CARES? I DON'T CARE! THE CAT DOESN'T CARE! NEW YORK DOESN'T CARE! Sloth away, Tara! Bum around like you've never bummed around before! That's what days off are for, right? Eh?

So on that note, yesterday I slept in till 11:00, forced myself to go to the grocery store around 2:00, came home, took a nap, ate a little bit, played with Rupert, fell asleep watching The Office season 4, played with Rupert some more and then woke up from nap #3 feeling extremely guilty for doing nothing all day. Kate has been in Austin for four days, so I've been extremely lonely and homesick, not to mention that I miss my boyfriend like crazy! (Who am I?!) So in lew of my newfound solitude-induced depression, I decided to go to the movies to take my mind off of how I've become one of those lonely women obsessed with reality tv, boys and cats. I went to see The Reader in Union Square. It was a great movie but a bit of a downer. Maybe not the best movie to see when you're missing your friends and family and feel like enhaling an entire vat of buttery popcorny goodness. I made a quick stop to Whole Foods afterwards because, well, I was bored and who doesn't like staring at perfectly placed pyramids of fresh vegetables? I picked up a variety of random goods: Peanut butter, seedless red grapes, nectarines and veggie burgers. Oh, and also a very over-priced bottle of fizzy water. "Mojo cool" to be exact. I then hopped onto the train and got home around 10:30. I started another movie on my netflix but fell asleep 20 minutes into it. Sorry Parker Posey, I tried my best to stay awake!

Today seems to be trending very similarly to yesterday. I must have fallen asleep on the couch because I woke up around 7:30AM to Rupert meowing and pawing at my face. I gave him some food and then laid back down in my bed. Re-awoke around 10:30 am. Have played on the computer for a couple of hours doing the neccessary scan through all of my favorite blogs. I then received a buzz at my door and discovered a very robotic looking package sitting infront of our mailbox!

I received a bar mitzfah-themed greeting card that read, "Dear Tara, congrats on the Mitzvah, it has been a long journey but you are finally a man. Enclosed are two mugs (you may want to use the enclosed hand sanitizer on the mugs. They are from savers), the MP3 cd you requested and a brand new copy of Spooky Sounds." I laughed for a long time. I needed something to cheer me up and almost make me shoot coffee out of my nose all over myself. Thanks Robot, I love you. You're a great brother.

Suddenly, I am feeling an inspirational itch to be productive! (I would hope so, it's 3:00 in the afternoon!) I need to do laundry, clean the house before Kate gets home (Eeeeeek!!) and take a shower. I will also try to be more productive with writing in my blog. This last week has been so long and tiring, I couldn't find much motivation to do anything, let alone the inspiration to write about anything interesting!

I will leave you with a few pictures of Mike's cat. He has been a great source of entertainment. It's funny how easily distracted cats can be. They think they're wiser than dogs, but I've never seen a living creature become so infatuated with a runaway grape on the floor or the shadow of their own tail.
