Bachelorette Weekend: Part Three

After our afternoon nap on Saturday, we got ourselves all gussied up for a night out on the town.  Ginny requested that each girl wear a black dress and as part of my hostess with the mostess theme, I told the girls I would provide brightly colored feather boas.  I ended up finding these perfect Florida Gator boas.  All of the girls went to UF and so these were perfect for this group. Ginny, of course, got the all white boa. For our big dinner out, we went to a…

Bachelorette Weekend: Part Two

Saturday morning, the original plan was to go to Max Brenner’s chocolatier restaurant in Union Square for a chocolate-themed brunch.  On Sunday morning, we were supposed to go to this beautiful, dainty, much nicer place for a morning-after brunch called Hundred Acres.  But we ended up switching and doing Hundred Acres on Saturday morning because we figured Friday night was going to be the tame night and all the girls would be in a much more presentable state on Saturday morning, rather than on Sunday morning after our big Saturday…

WARNING :  If you are a new reader, please go back and read my two previous…

Taxi-Cab Confessions

Yesterday after work, I caught the train down to New York to meet Chris at a New York Rangers hockey game.   This is all part of our Operation De-Rut Program.   When I got to Grand Central, I hailed a cab and told the driver to take me to Madison Square Gardens.   I felt very New York. On the way to The Garden, the cab driver asked me what I had tickets to see.   I told him a Rangers game and he kind of chuckled.   Keep…

The University Club

I don’t usually talk about my job because it would probably bore you to tears, but I have to tell you about my day yesterday.   I attended our Board of Trustees meeting in New York at the very elite University Club.   The Club is located on the corner of 5th Avenue and 54th Streets, which for those of you who are not familiar with New York, is in what I call the va-va-voom neighborhood.   It is right across the street from Bergdorf and just down from Tiffany…

Like Trying to Find a Needle in a Haystack

Chris went to New York today for his first actual job interview. He was emailed by a guy who owns a company called Production Glue. The company does large scale production management projects in New York. The emails Chris exchanged did not promise a job, but instead jumped right into salary negotiations and gave him the choice between two different positions. The conversation today was with Chris and the company founder to discuss a start date, salary, details, etc. SO FRUSTRATING! Nothing was decided. Chris said the conversation went well…
