Takeout Menu

I get only two sorts of mail at my apartment (this is by choice). I only get exciting packages from my parents or from Anne, or takeout menus.

The sad thing is, I find both exciting.

The packages are of course more thrilling but there is something about having my own takeout menu in my own mailbox which gives me this warm sense of satisfaction. Something about coming to my mailbox after work in my own lobby and seriously considering said takeout menu as I open my own apartment door to my own apartment, which I love, makes me rather wonderfully content. Drugstores no longer give me the same buzz anymore, which is a little sad in itself (they use to remind me, bizarrely, of the strange adventure I was on) but they seem to have been replaced by takeout menus. In my mailbox. And on my fridge in my apartment.

I don't get to use them that often- money is too tight really (he says as he is about to book Easter in Chicago). But I've found that Sunday pizza from MOVERS is surprisingly sensational and I love their pizza and they don't have a delivery fee and I discovered it because of junk mail in my letter box.

So in conclusion- take out menus are both satisfying and useful.

I never got a take out menu when I was living out of home. But I did enjoy getting enrollment and program pamphlets for community colleges etc. That was how I discovered Bollywood Dancing!

Meanwhile, I am getting rather pathetically excited about coming to visit you. I really cannot wait. I was thinking that you will have to take me coat shopping, because as much as I love my puffy, goose down coat, I am not sure if I can wear it around New York. It might be ok in Vegas though.

oh no puffy down coats are very popular, especially if they're North Face. But then again, this really is the place to buy a nice new coat because they're so much cheaper. We can go to Filene's! I have an appointment with Filene's scheduled during the work day today. Work is so hard.

Lol. It certainly does sound like you have some excessively grueling days at work. :)

I am excited about this shopping. But I am also glad to know that I can still wear my puffy around town, as I love it dearly, it's like wearing a doonah.
