National Ice Cream Day!

Spent the morning sleeping late, then got up to find I had no internet. Looked up Time Warner Cable on my phone, found a troubleshooting tip (unplug the router and modem) and tried it. Didn't work. Called their number, got automated help which directed me to do the same thing and if that didn't work, call back. I figured I'd try it once more just to be able to say I had when I called and... that time it worked. Go figure. So that was OK.

Texted mashfanficchick to find out if they were going to do anything for National Ice Cream Day and she asked if I wanted to hang out for the afternoon on Long Island, but since they were going to the beach in the evening I'd have to take the train home (it's not free guest day). So I said yes and they picked me up and we went to Koryodang for a snack, and Cordoba for lunch. Then Barnes and Noble for awhile, where I got two books, a Mercedes Lackey and something for Oldest Brother for Christmas. And finally Carvel for ice cream.

And then they dropped me at the Westbury train station and I took the LIRR to Woodside, and then the 7 to Flushing, and the bus home. And here I am.

A very nice day, marred by thoughts of Baton Rouge.

Gratitude List:

1. Friends.

2. Ice cream.

3. Fun books (Mercedes Lackey is mental popcorn, so tasty and filling but light)

4. Mass transit.

5. Air conditioning.

6. Bed soon.

    I meant to get up at 10, but I hot the snooze alarm too many times and got up at 10:45, which meant I had to really rush to get breakfast and coffee…
