I am going to give a brief run down of the day that was.
Worked out early this morning so I slept in until 7:00 - what a relief. We had off from practice because of the ice problem here in the area - it made the roads tough to travel on - and the head coach lives 45 minutes north.
Lindsay had a doctor's appointment to check on Baby D's status. Before the visit, we headed for a Restaurant Week lunch at Colicchio & Sons - Tap Room down in the Meatpacking District. Probably the best lunch we've had in quite some time, and all for $24.07 a person. I had roasted bone marrow with truffle oil and drunk onions, the TC Burger with drunk onions, and an apple tatin for dessert. Lindsay opted for the cauliflower soup as an appetizer, the tomato, mozzarella, and basil pizza, and the zeppole dessert with butterscotch sauce.
Oh, and we saw @Tom_Colicchio. I wanted to say hello, but after I gathered up the courage, he headed to the bathroom - or so I thought. I headed in too, because I had to go, but he wasn't there. I actually hung out in there a little longer than I needed to, hoping he was going to head in there. No luck.
We then walked a few blocks to the subway to head across town (to the East Side) to get to the doctor. Took the L train to Union Square and hopped on the 6 train uptown.
We then walked across a snow-covered Central Park to get to the West Side, where we hopped on the 1 train at 72nd Street. Saw a neat photo op of a wooden bridge with some snow on it. Click!
Here's a sampling of their conversation:
Male: Yeah, my mom doesn't like you too much, she's afraid if we hang out I'll start doing drugs
Female: Well , I do research on the drugs I do.
Male: That's cool. I want to do cocaine as my last drug as I'm dying, because I figure it would kill me anyway.
Female: Yeah, I only do drugs that aren't bad for you. I have never done cocaine but mushrooms are good.
Male: I saw Henry's friend at GameStop on 86th, he got a job because his girlfriend broke up with him or some shit
Female: Yeah, Damian right? He wanted me to get this piercing (on her right cheek), so I did it.
Oh their poor, pathetic souls. I truly feel for their parents - I think.
We got home, I took Nathan out, and we just flipped on the Syracuse/UConn game. 18-12 UConn leads. Seems like an ugly game so far, but I'm hardly watching - blog takes precedent. And Lindsay is in and out of sleep on the couch.
Duke is on the road at Maryland at 9:00. They need a bounce back win after the embarrassing loss to St. John's.
The Middle (8:00) and Modern Family (9:00) are also on. Yikes!
Looks like big decisions need to be made here in the Darcy apartment. It really feels like it's midnight, and I have to be up at 4:45 am for practice tomorrow.
Good night. Go Duke! And my feet hurt.
