My job ended yesterday, so I had some time today to go through several months of pictures and post some on the Fun page. I also added As You Like It to the photos page, which is a serious blast from the high school past.
I went to a chiropractor today who essentially took me apart and put me back together again. He informed me immediately that I had been sitting in a chair that was made for a short person and twists to the left, which is causing my abdominal pain due to an injury in my hip. He was exactly right about the chair, and I wonder if I need to make sure when going to temp jobs that I refuse ones where the people are out on disability due to their back. I have to be more careful. Anyway, he then did all sorts of devilishly saint-like twisty bendy things and made me feel much, much better, to the point where I almost cried. I go back Friday.
David and I also went to MoMA in NY, which embarassingly we NEVER DID whilst living there. Much of it was awe-inspiring (some of it, I'm sorry, was barf-inspiring). I just saw that they have this and I missed it, which makes me sad, as I love Munch (looks like there's going to be an exhibition devoted to him this Spring...very enticing). There was a room that was a wall of sound that is really indescribably wonderful. The coolest thing I saw, however, was this exhibition at the Met. It was the dawn of people learning how to manipulate photography, and some extremely spooky images are included. Some of it was so disturbing that I can't get it out of my mind, and I'm quite sure it has made me dream differently.
So, yeah, we came home to found our house in a slightly off kilter state. As David pointed out, the strangest things were the onion smell and the sticker on the wall and the pants and the schmutz everywhere. I'm still really glad and thankful we did it. We had precious instruments here and stuff, and he left them alone, which is wonderful, and I'm sort of glad that someone was reading our books. We pretty much have saged and decontaminated our place, and things are slowly coming back into focus as our home. I'm determined to enjoy Halloween this year, and have already gotten a costume for a party thingy to which we're invited. Tifanie and Sam are going as Uncle Fester and Wednesday, so we're going to join them as Morticia and Gomez Addams. Wheeeee....
OMG I love the one of Aunt Kathy and Uncle Len wearing the hats.
Thanks for posting all those pictures. Seems that photos are about the only way I get to see most family members now. And Mikey. I haven't seen him for more than a decade now. I can barely recognize him! Lisa | 10.19.05 - 7:11 pm | #
About the pictures, they are all great. Yes, Len gamely wore his hat all day. Only for the kids would he do that! That dress looks great, Adriana! Glad you had fun in NY. And, the one of you and your mom is picture perfect! Oh, I definetly want to see some of you and David in your Halloween getups! Ma | 10.20.05 - 7:11 am | #
Hee hee...and thereby hangs a tale, eh? I love that picture. And I love the pic of you and David in Battery Park. I'm still trying to work out our Onion Experience. Can't wait for the Addams Family reunion- I'll bring my headless doll, you bring the rose-less stem! tifanie | 10.21.05 - 9:11 am | #
That picture of us is funny. Joel looks like he's sneaking around.
