Got back from my trip last night. I had a great, great, great time. This was one of my favorite East Coast trips and I wish it had been longer. Curtis and I had a blast and he even let me drag him around while I did a bit of shopping. We ate a ton of good food and even had a chance to have a nice dinner of oysters and lobster rolls at Brooklyn Fish Camp, this super adorable little restaurant with a very charming back patio that our friend Gabe recommended (he is a lobster roll connoisseur). Being on tour you usually only have time and budget for a slice of pizza so it was a pleasant surprise to have a sweet romantic dinner with my man. Both shows in New York were so good, especially Brooklyn—great attendance, big fans, good spirits, lots of friends.

After New York we drove to Boston. The only snafu of the trip was that we didn’t plan ahead to reserve a hotel. They usually don’t have a problem, but it was some kind of alumni week and everything within a 20 mile radius was booked. My sister and Steve were staying in the city that night because they were running a race in the morning, so they graciously allowed me to crash in their room. It made the most sense logistically because I needed to meet up with my sis in the morning anyway, but I was really sad to say goodbye to Curtis eight hours earlier than planned. It turned out for the best because they didn’t find a hotel until five in the morning, way outside of Boston. Boo. It’s very clichéd and corny to say but absence really does make the heart grow fonder. I hate saying goodbye but I love having someone like him to miss so much.

The next couple of days I hung out with my sister and her husband—more shopping, more great food. We went to this cute flea/farmers market and I got a really cute vintage flower pin that I got compliments on for the rest of the trip. We also went to this apple orchard that had 119 varieties of pre-20th century heirloom apples. They did a tasting and I think we tried about 30 apples overall. Well I didn’t—I got appled out about 25 varieties in. There were also alpacas!

All my flights were miraculously on time, I managed to arrive in Seattle just in time to catch the light rail home—which is very nice and comfortable compared to the bus, if a bit slow. As much fun as it was though, I swear next trip needs to be beachy and relaxing where I don't do anything except lay on a towel and drink a cocktail. Now I’m having some difficulty trying to get back into the swing of work, though I have a ton of shit to catch up on. Somehow I also have to do laundry and catch up on bills and stuff, but I have a volunteer orientation for the NARAL auction tonight and my mom is in town and wants to have dinner tomorrow. BLECH.

Have you ever watched the Hoda and Kathy Lee show? What is up with that? It’s a total disaster. They just talk over each other really loudly and I can’t even tell what’s going on. I can’t believe that meets the bar for being broadcast worthy.
