ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

Still going strong... haven't yet seemed to turn him off

Apparently he is into me. Got an email, clockwork, by the end of the second day after the second date. Huzzah! He said the evening (the second date) was "charming", and seems to be suggesting a trip to The Gates, for some "particular reason", that he won't specify (he just says "more on that later.") I'm intrigued.

Just got home from the Met's production of La Boheme, which I was fortunate enough to see with my friend Doug since he had an extra ticket. (Thanks to the boys of Ciszek, for deciding to go to class instead of the opera, thus leaving Doug with a spare! Huzzah!).

So, good day.

(Second date: Saw Finding Neverland; went for Indian Food on 6th Street; drank Love My Goat wine from the Finger Lakes area of New York State -- I'd bought it before from a NYC winery specializing in NY State wines; wandered arm in arm; went to KGB; sat in the corner drinkin' whiskey - me, JD, him, Macallan*; smooched; walked back to subway at Union Square; smooched; bid each other adieu. Oh yeah, he brought chocolates. Did I mention the chocolates?)

For the record, my life isn't all wandering around Manhattan, seeing art, attending operas, eating delicious food, and drinking copious amounts of wine and whiskey.

It's just an enjoyable part of it. (Some friends are actually having a scotch tasting night tomorrow night. Yum! Other than Laphroaig, I'm not sure what else we're drinking).

Anyway, so the next poll is -- how long before I get my hopes up & they're dashed to pieces on the hard Manhattan concrete? (very hard concrete, there, in Manhattan)

* The Macallan was actually my recommendation; but this JD needs her JD. If you know what I'm sayin'.
