Day with Oldest Brother

Back at Christmas time I gave Oldest Brother the gift of an expenses-paid day around Union Square. Today I paid up.

We took the bus in to Flushing, got bubble tea, and then took the subway from there, transferring at Grand Central Station. We managed to get seats on the 7 train but not one on the 6, but that's only a few stops. At Union Square we walked to Poke Stop, the poke restaurant around the corner from the Strand. Had some delicious poke for lunch, and then went back to Forbidden Planet. I found myself a Dresden Files graphic novel, and Oldest Brother picked out The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, reliving his childhood as he said.

Then we went to The Strand, and wandered around. I got myself His Majesty's Dragon, which I've always been interested in reading but never got around to, and for Oldest Brother, Neuromancer. He got himself a couple of books too.

By then it was getting latish, we were tired, and there wasn't much of anything going on in Union Square, so we took the subway back to Flushing, and had pizza at Lucia Pizza, which I think is some of the best I've ever had. While we were there we talked on the phone to Middle Brother, who is doing well.

And then we came back here and Oldest Brother took a nap and I called the FWiB. We only had a short conversation because it was late and he was getting sleepy. So after that I started reading the Dresden Files book.

And now he's awake, the cats are fed (Oreo's been hiding ever since we got here) and it was a very good day.

Gratitude List:

1. Oldest Brother.

2. Wonderful places in the city.

3. Poke.

4. The FWiB.

5. Mostly got seats on the subway (though we had to stand sometimes)

6. Nice weather for the day.

  • A Zoomy Day!

    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…

  • TGIF

    Well, Oldest Brother's "interview" was a bust, apparently the Medicaid guy was just trying to walk him through getting an online SS account, which…

  • Nothing much about today

    I was a bit late getting to work cause I overslept again. Gotta' watch that tomorrow. Work was pretty quiet, nothing much to say. I went to the YA…
