I haven’t done one of these in a while, and it’s a good thing I’m overdue because this week has been a doozy!
WTF NYC Moment #1: University Ave near Union Square. Preppy woman walking a large, immaculately-groomed standard poodle. The poodle was wearing a wife beater. Why? Just…why? WTF??
WTF NYC Moment #2: My building has an exterminator that swings by monthly to check for signs of pests. He’s a nice enough guy. Today he showed up with a copy of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Amazing Sex” tucked under his arm. I have literally been racking my brain for a scenario where this would make sense. He stopped at the library on his way to work? One of the units in our building is a booty call? So bizarre. WTF.
WTF NYC Moment #3: Apartment stoop in the West Village. Sunny day. Guy talking on cell phone. Conversation snippet: “Yeah, he was like a black Bob Saget.” Guy was of course as white as a cotton ball. And, um…I kinda want to know who he was talking about! Because, WTF?
WTF NYC Moment #4: The alley behind my building is a popular place for people to film shit. I’m not sure why, but there are always photo shoots and student film crews back there. Today? Was apparently Drag Queen day. They were doing some sort of glamor shoot. And damn those ladies were loud! WTF!
Today’s EAT: I loved my Cinco de Mayo nacho dinner so much that I decided to revisit the nacho genre for dinner tonight.
The players in this version? Chicken (poached and shredded), sweet potatoes (roasted), black beans (seasoned and simmered), a little cheddar and a scoop of plain Greek yogurt. The hubs eyes lit up with delight when he saw this plate. And for good reason: it was pretty delightful! And so easy, too!
Dinner was a little on the late side tonight. Here is why:
Frozen yogurt from Bloomingdale’s. Who knew? This was hands-down the best fro-yo I have ever had. Pinkberry, hang your overpriced head in shame!
Normally, Thursday nights are tempo run nights. But with a half-marathon two days away, I wasn’t having any of that. So I met up with teammates Jacqui and Megan for a wonderful little fro-yo date instead. It was, I am sorry to say, WAY more fun than the five-mile tempo run that the rest of our group did. Sorry, tempo run. You lose. 🙂
I’m going to bed with a full and happy belly tonight, and can’t wait to go back to Bloomie’s for another creamy yogurt treat. I might even be able to get the hubs on board with this (he is a tart yogurt hater).
Today’s DRINK: Well, I had planned to leave the beer in the fridge alone tonight. But I’m up late tonight finishing a couple of work/writing projects, and as awful as this sounds, sometimes a little liquid inspiration helps. So I cracked a Harpoon UFO. And it indeed helped. Or at least made me happier about spending my evening working. 🙂
Today’s RUN: Two very mellow loops of the Bridle Path in Central Park for a total of 5 miles (44:30). I’m officially on hiatus until 7 AM Saturday morning! Woohoo!
Today’s QUESTION: Frozen yogurt – yay or nay? If you love it, what’s your favorite place to get your fix? I have enjoyed the likes of Pinkberry in the past but this Bloomies yogurt has raised the bar. I don’t think I can go back to PB now!
