Highlights of the trip:
-H.G. and I shared a trip to the Spa for some much deserved hour long massages (this was SUPPOSED to be a secret that went awry when I had to tell her why she couldn't make last minute plans)
-We enjoyed an evening with some of her friends at the infamous "Beer Garden" where I became "a little annoying and pouty" I believe were the words of HG (Hey, I can't help I HATE beer. I'm a liquor kinda guy. Beer's just not my thing, and it's not like I'm not a good sport about it. I TRY to enjoy it; I just have this problem with it since my alcoholism in the late '90s...
-TV and Law & Order marathon while having SOHO
-Decimating HG's goal to eat healthy and moved down the ranking of "good boyfriend" when I bought us a little thing called "Cheesecake" (Which I feel bad about because it's admirable she is dedicated to losing at the gym; something I more than likely would be done with at this point)
-Went shopping together downtown where I bought some nice threads at Daffy's
-Enjoyed the phenomenon called "Chinatown" one last time and continually evade the police while getting our blatantly copied goods; I even picked up some Armani "Code" cologne while there. When in Rome right?
-Spent numerous hours looking into my beautiful girlfriends eyes envisioning life together
-REPEATEDLY invited her to a life in Ohio where we could live like royalty on what is the difference in cost of living expenditures....(Don't worry, NYC won by a landslide due to the stubbornness of HG; besides, I love NYC anyways...it was just a shot in the dark)
-Enjoyed listening to a dog barking on an airplane for roughly an hour and a half (even the stewardess' were saying "Is this REALLY happening?") This dog was some kind of terrier or something and has to weight about 20 lbs. It was a pretty good sized dog for being on flight
-Blew out my eardrums turning my IPOD up louder than I ever have in an attempt to avoid the high pitched yapping that was the dog barking
-Tipped the Limo Service driver a $5 spot because I was impressed with the cleanliness of his car and the fact that I didn't have to grab any "oh %&@" handles on the way to the Airport- all in all, a great ride if I do say so myself. Plus he was a really nice older gentleman with great taste in music. He turned it up for me... Genesis FTW!
So I guess that's really about all we got accomplished. All in all, it was too short of a visit, but I will be back to see her soon. I really can't wait. It's more and more difficult to say goodbye the longer we're together.
Oh, we stopped in Tiffany's and looked at some rings. This was followed with some snickering when we were heading back down and the elevator attendant asked what floor. HG says "two" and then some couple asks "what's on that floor" and we hear a guy who says "that's the engagement floor" accompanied by delight and laughter as anyone at that stage would understand. You'd have to have been there, but it was a funny scenario. HG and I were both amused as we got of the elevator.
So anyways, if this makes it onto HG's blog, thanks for reading and I know I'm not a writer. I just wanted everyone to know what we did this weekend and how wonderful it was to see my friends in NY and of course my reason for being there; HG. I love her dearly.
