Last night, Alex and Tom and Jamie and I were coming home from Petey's Burgers, which is a delicious little burger place in Astoria that is reputed to be the In 'n' Out of the East Coast (verdict: Petey's is more expensive than In 'n' Out - burgers run about $6-$7; the first time we went there, the patties were kind of dry, but since then they have been moist and delicious; In 'n' Out has better sauce; Petey's provides more substantial burgers), and we saw, taped up to be thrown away, three big boards, maybe 3'x5', with ads on them for maybe Target or maybe H&M or somewhere similar. One of them is red with silver print and says "sugar and spice you sure look nice gifts back here at your favorite price"; the other two picture screaming female profiles. Now we have a decorated apartment!
Also up on the walls are the two maps my mother sent me, and a nice arrangement of pictures of Jamie dressed up as Mickey Mouse. I am pleased with the decorating progress, although I am also highly cautious about putting anything up, for reason of not wanting it to turn into the Rabbit Hole, which was great for a year and a half but made me super claustrophobic by the end.
We are sort of haphazardly trying to come up with a name for this place btdubs! Any suggestions?
Anyway, other than those fun times, I have mostly just been sitting at home rereading Keys to the Kingdom, in preparation for the last one coming out, and emailing and calling ten billion theatre-related people trying to get a job. So far, the mostly likely is a 3-week music directing gig this summer in the Adirondacks. More on that later!
