things are better

suck! can't wait for my hands to heal up a bit. I hate to think of missing any gym time. ugh.
i have been sitting around today with my two index fingers trying to keep both as straight as possible in their bandages. just grading essays and watching tv and going outside now and then to enjoy the fall weather. going to be nice this weekend....I had a call from a "bud" in town this morning, this ex army guy I think I've mentioned before. anyway, I told him my hands were not in any state to be handling his monster...but he could feel free to call me for lunch sometime.
(I'm still on the wagon with the beard until thanksgiving. i know that sounds insane, ahh well)
I also called this other buddy, an ex army nurse who lives in town, cause I wanted some help changing my bandaids. since they're on my hands and all... but he just got off work at 7 this morning and slept in all day til 1pm, when he called I'd already got the nerve to change everything myself. and basically all the skin is connected and set and I think should heal up with out any stitches needed. so I just got to keep it all clean and keep pouring on the hydrogen peroxide when I change bandaids. now if I can just shower up and keep half my hands dry...
oh yeah, I'm getting some tickets to Hair and Finians rainbow for my NYC visit. also getting some ideas to shop around while there, I am planning on taking hardly any clothes, and then return with a few new ones... also will be going out with the banker friend I made while in Santa Fe last summer. and I have plans to meet up a former student from central america interning in NYC right now... shweet, one month away.

You should check out the High Line on the west side in NY. For shopping, go to Odin on Lafayette and A.P.C. on Mercer.

Hey..know your coming to NYC..and this weekend I saw HAIR..it was amazing!

Lots, lots of songs...try and get a ticket in the lower level seating area (Orchestra?) as the performers come out to the audience a lot, and sometimes they are out of view from the Mezzanine, as I found out. Although they were up near us too...

The performers were great...good music. Stay alert at the song prior to Intermission..the whole cast gets naked on stage except for one guy singing in the corner. I apparently missed most of the nakedness, because I was stupidly watching the guy singing!

Otherwise, the cast has a bunch of cuties...makes me long for those make sex not war days!

Have fun!
