Visitors

Some friends from LA came to visit us. They were on their way to Christmas in Westport, and made a pit stop at our place.

It was nice having friends over. We talked and laughed and walked around in the freezing cold. We showed them some of the sights, and ate here and here and here, and never once had to wait for a table. It helps that we donít eat on New England time, and that the students are mostly gone for the holidays.

I put my cashmere sweater in the freezer, and slowly picked off as much wax as I could but I finally had to bite the bullet and take it to the dry cleaners. And you know what? They got the wax out! Itís a Christmas miracle! Now I can safely mail it to the reweavers to have the little holes fixed. When I get it back, itíll be like having a brand new sweater.

Iíve been shopping for some more fitted, cashmere turtleneck sweaters, and you canít imagine how hard it is to find nice ones. Iíve looked everywhere, and if the cut is nice, the colors are bad; or if the colors are good, the sizing is jacked up or the sleeves are ugly. And the thing is, I am not looking for trendy colors or special shapes or unique detailing. Iím looking for BASIC but youíd never know it from my fruitless search.

Anyway, Iíve got to shop online now. TAís present is stuck in ďout of stock til JanuaryĒ limbo and I need a little something extra.
