With my parents in town, I woke up early today to take them down to the flea markets. The Chelsea markets were great, of course. My mom got some good stuff that she was pleased with. The Hell's Kitchen market, however, was a big disappointment. The random market that sprung up on First Avenue a block from my apartment was much better. After walking through that with my mom, we took in a showing of Harry Potter. When we left the theatre we realized what dorks we were, having gone to a movie in the middle of a beautiful day, so we called my dad and had him meet us at a little outdoor Mexican cafe. One giant pitcher of margaritas later, we were done for the day!

One of my best pals from high school has moved all the way from Brazil to New Jersey! My bro and I got to see her for the first time in 8 years. It was so great to catch up with her and meet her fiance. I'm so glad I have another friend so close to me now.

My friend Al and I decided that we didn't want to work anymore, and we treated ourselves to a nice lunch at a restaurant near the office. Sitting out in the sun gossiping for an hour was exactly what we needed.
