Most of our anniversary was spent apart, it being a work day. Pete was able to record this 12seconds.tv clip, unfortunately I couldn’t hear the audio at work, but I got the loving point. We met at The Hummus Place a little after 7:00 (Pete found me reading a printout of the second draft of “PSW,” his space adventure novel). I had gone to the Jack’s 99cent store and bought a small vase and bag of marbles, then got a $2 rose…placed them on the table for him to see when he arrived. We had hummus and pita bread, and I introduced him to falafel (although I couldn’t really tell him what was in it, only that it was good). After dinner, we walked up and down Amsterdam Ave, then over to Barnes and Noble, which was open until midnight. Went up and down the aisles, looking at sooooo many books as yet unread. Lots and lots of books to read. Lots of money to be spent. Laughed outright at the Stephen Colbert Barnes & Noble tote bag, replete with the familiarly-rendered sketch of his smiling face. I want one.
