I have left Mara for the day. She still (if you can believe it) has some coffee left in her coffee pot and she is refocusing her self as she puts Dolly Parton on repeat on the iHome. She says it helps soothe her. I am happy to quit for the day and part of me is worried that I will show up tomorrow morning and find her sitting in the same chair wearing the same Puma sweatshirt and find out Dolly...
Sometimes I wonder… Mara is literally sitting at the table and waiting for her Fairy Godmother to appear. She also told me that she would settle for a magic lamp with a wish granting Genie. I am not sure if this is the result of 9 cups of coffee consumed over the course of the day or the head banging I mentioned earlier this am. I must say I will watch and let her wait for what ever...
to Hell in a handbasket...
and it is only 8:46am. If Mara was not already banging her head on the table I might grab her by her hair and bang it for her.
My bracket is falling apart as I type. I am beyond devastated. UPDATE: My bracket has fallen apart.
although Mara’s frustration is nothing compared to this little incident….
Mara has been painting/drawing since we got back from Ikea. She is working on this project that I am not allowed to discuss here since it is still in the works. She seems particularly frustrated…
We are meeting Christine for a power walk over to Ikea. Supposed to be a high of 65 degrees here in Brooklyn. Yowzars!
Time Warner Cable. It is the bane of Mara’s existence and through the transitive property or osmosis it is the bane of my existence as well. We were having some trouble with the cable box this afternoon and I called Time Warner and they had me cut power so they could increase signal strength to the box. WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? They are sending a stronger signal? I don’t get it, why...
What a day at is it only 4:30! It has been a full afternoon of appointments and meetings downtown today. We made some new friends and that is always a plus. Also Mara wanted to stop by Pearl Paint since we were right there and we were UNIMPRESSED with the selection of items. The shelves were empty and they really had nothing. It was very disappointing and quite frankly I think neither of us will...
I got an emergency message last night as Mara’s Blackberry was on the firtz. It started going crazy this weekend but only got worse I guess last night, and then into early this am. After an hour on the phone with Verizon Wireless fingers crossed all has been solved.
back in Brooklyn. Season Finale of Eastbound & Down tonight. Mara offered to cook dinner. Mara’s cooking is really hit or miss. Tonight she is trying to make use of what she’s got in the fridge slash freezer so she came up with chicken with onions & asparagus over pasta. She is currently cooking as I blog. If all else fails we did bring back a case of Geary’s.
We arrived this afternoon. Mara was unbelievably cranky having not had caffeine all day and not really eating. I tried to warn Hildy & David but alas. We are also experiencing some technological difficulties with our internet connection. Tomorrow am will most likly be spent on the phone with apple. Tonight we are off to Barrie’s for dinner, she is making Maine Shrimp! Yum!
Are we really listening to ‘my Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean’ on the radio?

Mara & I have decided that we spend entirely too much time inside. She has implemented a new office wellness routine. Now that it is getting nicer out, weather permitting, we go on long afternoon walks. It is nice. We need fresh air. It helps Mara clear her head and gives me a bit of a break… and lord knows I need a break!
Hey, I’m a hustler homie, you a customer cronie. Got some dirt on my shoulder, could you brush it off for me?

still fighting. It probably made things worse that I might have broken a light in Mara’s bathroom this morning.
I can’t even begin to discuss today. Mara & I are kind of in a bit of a fight…well she is really upset with me. I don’t know what to do.
