I'm trying to stop thinking of my life as boring and start thinking of it as relaxing. I mean, it's not like I never do anything. I go to work a few days a week. I go out with my friends a few days a week. But that does still leave a lot of unoccupied hours. Oh well. I like my apartment. I like my cat. So, I guess it's ok to be home a lot. I'm just really looking forward to Bo coming back to New York. Right now he's in Montana directing a play called Greater Tuna there, and he gets back to the city on July 5th. I guess I would be more glad of this free time if he was around. Right now it just feels like a waste, because I don't have much else to be doing.
I did have a little fun recently when I went to my friend Victoria's PENTHOUSE! Yes, she lives in a penthouse in Battery Park (the southern most part of Manhattan). You may wonder why my friend Victoria, the New York actress, is so well off. Well, her husband, Jeff Rovin, is a ghost writer for Tom Clancy. Anyway, we had some homemade pizza and watched Dreamgirls (in high definition Blu-ray, of course). I think one of my favorite things to do in New York is go to other people's apartments. It's so interesting to see how people live in this city. People often do a lot with a little, even in the very expensive apartments, like the one I was just in. The apartment itself wasn't huge. Nice, but not huge. But the VIEW is amazing:
There's so much more to apartments in this city than their size. There's location (Battery Park is not too shabby), view (river? park? skyline? all three??), terrace, roof access, the building as a whole. And the fact that many apartments are over 100 years old (like mine) and some extremely modern makes for a lot of different styles. Nope, no cookie cutter living spaces in New York.Labels: apartments
