Rainbows! Unicorns! Sunshine! Presents!

My dad is doing so much better! They closed up the hole in his throat and he's talking normally now! He sounds almost like himself, with just a slightly weird twinge to his voice.

Last night my fabulous friend A took me out for dinner at Indique. We were in the middle of delicious Indian food and tamarind margaritas - super yum! - when my dad called. To tell me how I need to get a confirmation from Citibank to prove that they actually closed my credit card accounts. He gave me a couple more instructions.

This means? That my dad is really and truly back.

Yippee!

They moved him off a medical floor and now he's on the psyche ward. Now that he can actually talk through his mouth, I figure he might as well do some translating for any Spanish speakers up there.

And in much more frivolous news, the present I ordered myself on Sunday, back when I still had a credit card, arrived. It was the first time I'd ordered from Bluefly and I think I love them. I got a lovely, elegant, sexy chocolate brown Susana Monaco dress and very fun undies. Kind of spendy, but less than they could've been elsewhere.

What a sparkly way to end the week!

Must find a fabulous opportunity to get all tarted up. . .

  2. VVK - I know! So great!

    Shannon - Haha! Yes, it is internet porn. That and Shopbop. But I guess if I were married with kids, realtor.com would be much more of a turn on. :)

  3. Oh, and also it's great to hear that your dad is doing so well. I'm sure it's encouraging that he is taking an interest in all of the details of the heist.

    I'm not totally thoughtless, just easily distracted by thoughts of pretty dresses. I'll keep your family in my thoughts.

  8. HKW - Thank you! I can't say enough nice things about Susana Monaco clothing. The fabric is great, and most of her stuff is washable. I've spent more on her dresses than I ordinarily would because they just fit so well and feel so good.

    Moosie - Thank you - I think the fatherly things are such a good sign. And retail therapy is my favorite kind. :)

    Dagny - You're so sweet! Thanks! Can't wait to hang out next week!
