between the movies...

I had three hours to kill between the movies, so I thought that it was a great time to finally head over to "Giovanni's Room" and grab some reading, then go to the "Whole Foods" market on South Street to get a Jamba Juice and something to eat.

Well, it was pouring before I stepped in to see FAQs, so I figured I may need an umbrella, but it was sunny and bright when I stepped out. I didn't want to take a chance, though and went back to the car. However, I apparently left my umbrella at home, 'cause I couldn't find it in either the back seat or the trunk.

It was sunny, really sunny, so I figured I might actually be safe after all, so I walked to the bookstore. I browsed around for a while and pretty much just ended up buying a copy of Unzipped. (I don't need to buy any new BOOKS, since it looks like I can start Harry Potter today).

I then walked to the supermarket and again browsed around. I picked up a fresh cut fruit cup (with strawberries, green and red grapes, pineapple, honeydew and cantaloupe), made myself a salad at the salad bar, grabbed a pair of potato latkes and bought a jamba juice (banana/strawberry).

As I sat down to eat, the skies opened up and what looked like a monsoon started. I knew I had the time to kill anyway, not to mention all the food to eat, so I put on my iPod, tuned to last week's episode of "This American Life" (which I'd yet to listen to) and ate, waiting for the rain to let up.

Soon after I finished eating, the rain stopped. I quickly gathered up my stuff and headed back towards the theater.

About halfway there (about a block and a half from the bookstore again), the skies opened up and dropped deluge on me. I stumbled into the bookstore and went upstairs to the bathroom to dry off with some paper towels. I stayed there, upstairs reading the children's books, until the rain let up again.

I found one that I may be picking up for Maia...And Tango Makes Three by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson. It's the true story of a pair of male penguins who live in the zoo at New York's central park who raised a baby together.

After drying out a little bit, I headed back to the theatre with still another hour to kill. I was afraid to head anywhere else and risk getting wet again. I just went up to the car in the garage, turned on the air conditioner WAY up and blow dryed myself from the dashboard. I grabbed a different magazine that I'd bought earlier in the week (non-pornographic) and hadn't yet brought into the house and went downstairs to wait for my next film.
