Tonight, we feast at a great restaurant called "Taboon." Then we go see Peter Tschzschvxovsky's Nutcracker at Lincoln center. I'm' pumped. However, I'm also a tad bit under the weather. But nothing like good food to bring me ever closer to glory despite all physical maladies.
My mother and father in law just left and they will be missed. Never have I met two more kind and generous people in all my living days. Seriously. The shelf that my computer sits upon was made with my father-in-law's hands measured with his keen eyes, even though our apartment -being a very old brownstone- is slightly slanted. I cannot imagine what the shelf would look like if it would have been left in the hands of the ever-impatient Seth Ward.
However, despite all of their goodness, they will forever be the nemesis of the spades-duo Seth and Amber. No matter how much we try, we cannot seem to conquer C&B at spades. They are the reigning spades Czars of the family and probably will be for all time. My father in law is a bit of a mathematical genius and when the first hand is played he can pretty much tell what everyone has in their hand and what they will play. To throw him off I have to play ridiculous plays and do things that only make sense at the quantum level. Of course, that only worked for about two rounds and then he adjusted the anomaly and resumed conquering. My mother-in-law is blazingly intuitive and psychic. She strikes as though she knows all of our TRUE bidding abilities, therefore, she is the ultimate enemy of anyone trying to go nil.
Time to put on the fancy clothes and go to chow-bliss. If I don't post in the next few days, Happy New Year!
(Last "Fullness of Time" installment coming. I just know you are all biting your nails in suspense.)
