Hey kids! Sorry for the radio silence. Both the new job and class have kept me super busy. It’s been hard to find time for the blog. But I’m trying to figure out how to prioritize everything, so I can make time for The Lindsey Show. I love this blog so I’ll find a way.
Two weeks worth of Weeks in Review after the jump. Enjoy!
Weekly Highlights: June 10
Sunday: After three days sick in bed, I finally left the apartment. Up to Columbia to pick up my parents cat, Rosemary, who stayed with us while my parents were in France (lucky dogs!). It’s always so weird to be out in the real world after several days sick in bed. Birthday drinks with the lovely Stephanie at Mission Dolores. Quiet dinner at home. Ken and I started watching Friday Night Lights, which just might be my new favorite TV show.
Tuesday: Dinner with Allegra. We have the worst luck with restaurants on the Lower East Side. Tonight, we left a restaurant in a huff after being accused of making a waitress cry (we weren’t being that mean, promise). We ended up at 169 Bar, where the good company made up for the mediocre food.
Wednesday: Drinks with Geoff at Mission Dolores to celebrate his birthday! Lots of talk about my new gig and his upcoming cross-country road trip with his girlfriend, Thea.
Friday: Lovely dinner with Jen and Alexis. Lots of wine, delicious seafood pasta, and Jen’s famous turtles.
Saturday: Ken had a rare weekend off work and did we ever pack it full! We both worked in the morning. Dropped the cat off with my mom. Surprise party for Elaine (there are a huge number of June birthdays, huh?) on the UWS. Drinks with our long-lost friend, Jes, at the fun outdoor bar in Riverside Park. Back home in the early evening for a relaxed night in: pizza from Nonna Rosa and the Mad Men finale.
(Boy was this a busy week! Something to highlight every day!)
Weekly Highlights: June 17
Sunday: Lazy morning reading the Times and eating bagels with Ken. Such a treat! Long walk to Cobble Hill to see Moonrise Kingdom. I wish it was better — it was beautiful, but not very interesting. Trip to Trader Joe’s for the basics. Home to work on the apartment. Wonderful simple dinner of salmon, spinach, and corn on the cob.
Friday: Dinner with Martin and Rachel at the Backyard. It wasn’t such a great meal, but it was nice to catch up after not seeing them for a month. Back home to our apartment for ice cream sandwiches and PBR. We sent them home with the first half of our CSA pickup. I’m so excited we’re part of the Park Slop CSA this year. So much beautiful produce: strawberries, cherries, bok choy, collard greens. The list goes on and on!
Saturday: Up early for a short run in the park. It’s been a hot week and today wasn’t much better. Met up with mom and dad for a lovely brunch at Market Table. I’ve had two really excellent meals here — it’s such a nice restaurant. A little shopping in Soho. Home for an early dinner with Ken. Leftover lobster salad (thanks, Mom and Dad), bok choy salad, and lots of cold veggies. We walked up to see Ghostface Killah at Prospect Park, but the crowds were so crazy we ended up hitting up the Bell House, where non-wedding band, The Affections were playing a free show. Good times dancing and a great way to end a fun day.
Song of the Week:
Best Coast makes the best videos and their new video for “The Only Place” is no exception. I don’t agree with the sentiment, of course — L.A. is great, but I think I might stay in Brooklyn for good. But that’s not really here nor there. The song is great and so is the rest of the album.
