Saturday, I woke up and watched this weird film, The Minus Man. I liked it but I think I need to see it again. The first movie of the day is always the hardest to get your head around. After that, I got in the old car and headed off to Nutley to do my laundry. There were only two people in there. I made calls on my cell while my clothes were washing. I was talking to my Mom when I noticed some planes skywriting. It was really neat! 5 planes, in perfect sequence, writing out this: “Guaranteed for 21 years.” There was a phone number afterwards, I never did find out what was guaranteed. When I put my clothes in to dry, I went into the pizza place next door for some lunch. Damn, they have great pizza!
I was putting my laundry in my trunk when I got a call on my cell. My friend Paula was in the city working on something for the show. Turns out they needed someone to do something on camera. You dangle that carrot in front of my face and my answer will always be -where and when. The time was 4:00 – I had to be in the city by 6:00.
4:00 – Got in the car and drove like a bat out of hell back to Hoboken.
4:15 – Park car, run upstairs and change my clothes.
4:25 – Leave apartment, walk to the PATH station.
4:43 – Sitting on the PATH train and it’s not moving.
4:55 – PATH train finally takes off.
5:10 – Get to 33rd Street and have to transfer to the B or D train to take me to 42nd street.
5:20 – Get to 42nd and go above ground to walk.
5:24 – Above ground, check message on cell phone. It’s Paula. Turns out she didn’t need me. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
I told Paula that I’m going to hate her until Monday. Then, when I got back to Hoboken at 6:00, I called her and told her I was sorry for saying such a thing. I’m not about hate, only love.
After that defeat, I called some friends to ask them if they wanted to have dinner with me. No one was around! I went to Boston Market and got some chicken.
Sunday, I woke up and drove to the A & P. I picked up a frozen California Pizza Kitchen pizza for lunch. I cooked it up and cut it. Huh, that’s odd, this is really tough to cut. I put it back in because I thought it was still frozen. Took it out and again, still very, very difficult to cut. Upon further investigation, I noticed that there was a piece of cardboard under the pizza!
