I met Teresa this afternoon! After years of being internet friends, we finally met in real life. How weird to see someone live for the first time, but to have so many mutual stories. She was in town with some friends who came to watch the Yankees play the Orioles. (12 to 5, Orioles. Rah!) It was insane, honestly- looked like at least half of NYC had descended upon my poor city. I took T to the Red Canoe, where Nicole gave us celebratory wine, and then to Sapphire, my favorite Indian restaurant in the area. Okay, in the country. They're so lovely.
Seeing T was wonderful, and I'll see her again NEXT WEEK when I visit my people in Connecticut. Madness. I haven't been to CT in about a year and a half. I'm looking forward to it. It seems that each visit to CT gets less and less traumatic. I'd like it if this one could be just plain enjoyable. At least I can be sure the food will be good.
