This week is going great for me… I physically removed myself from the city last weekend to ensure I would be celebrating the men and women who served our country
in the sun, I am sure that is what they would have wanted… and I am also sure that is the best way to spend a long weekend. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I think winter in New York is actually over. As in, it is safe to come out of hiding now. Upon my return I have been greeted with a 85 degree day that I spent in Jury Duty. Alas, I can’t win, but I can leave the apartment without the fear of appendages being amputated from the freezing temperatures.
During the height of NYC’s Never-Ending Winter I couldn’t even get myself dressed in the morning without an overwhelming feeling of despair. One might be thinking, omg I am so sick of reading blog post after blog post about the weather. I would agree with that, but until the weather stops being stupid we have to continue to discuss it. That is the basis of good entertainment, right? Following the stupid things… case in point – the Westashian wedding, Shahs of Sunset, Snoop Dogg smoking a joint with Seth Rogen (which is more amazing than stupid), and many more that I feel confident should be filed under the classification of stupid entertainment.
But the real reason I know that winter is over is because I have some energy. Which is amazing… I don’t have to do anything on my own, no coffee, no green tea, no exercise, all I need is a little sunshine and I am back to my old self. But, as we learned, in the past couple months we can’t rely on the sun. It just comes and goes as it pleases.
That is why a go-to that helps with the dreaded bad mood for no reason is so important. The MJ girls had some great ideas… so I did a quick and very unscientific poll on g-chat. This is our top 10 –
1.) Listen to energizing music.
2.) Working out – a nice long run.
3.) Sleep it off.
4.) Long bath with a good magazine.
5.) Sitting in the steam room for a while.
6.) Picnicking in the park (good magazine, sandwich, maybe some vino.)
7.) A good massage.
8.) Binge watching a favorite TV show (Charmed was actually the show mentioned, LOL.)
9.) Buy a really expensive cheese to indulge in (clearly the french one) or whatever snack you enjoy.
10.) A little shopping.
