Dropped my sister off at the St. Regis hotel.
Nice hotel. Tad bit old fashioned, but gorgeous lobby with bronze/gold work. Plush, yes plush is a good word.
Met their personal Butler (yes Butler), a girl named King, no Keen, no Keana? No ....whatever, I didn't get the name.
She was very eager to help. She offered to unpack the bags.
And to pack them, if needed.
It was 10pm. We were all hungry. Dinner had to be decided upon. Not many options.
Sister 2 and bro-in-law shocked that hotel allows non-hotel food to be delivered.
Sister 1 insisted that we try Carnegie Deli.
Luck was on our side. Carnegie Deli delivers even at 10:15pm (yes time had passed and we had no decisions made).
We ordered from Carnegie Deli.
Food arrived. 7 whole pickles. Yum.
50 packets of ketchup. Why??
Piled up pastrami. It just doesn't get any better.
I dream of pastrami.
Piled high to the top
A slight push with the finger
And everything flops
You can have it anywhere
It'll never satisfy your belly
Until you order this mountain

My new shoes are sitting pretty and gathering dust on them.
I was free, I had nothing to do, no lists no nothing. Well, I am sure I had stuff, but I wasn’t going to do it. I was going to kick back, relax and enjoy the evening.
I did go work out though, after months. I’m not a good work-outer I must add. I enjoy aerobics, but where are the classes in NY? Ugh. Besides its too cold, I think ill just follow up on my interrupted Salsa classes. Back to last night. I decided to eat a light meal, but due to a friends insistence, I caved in and went for my favorite wings and burgers. Am shameless, I love food too much. I cannot resist. Luckily I don’t put as much weight, still I need to be healthier. At least I am thinking about it!
I am digressing too much. So it was cuppa chai, workout, shower, watching ‘How I met your mother’ while munching on wings and blue cheese dressing, then Two and a Half Men while trying to fit stacked up burger in mouth. Then a good ten minutes to wipe off all the mess I created.
Then heaven, I was in heaven. Kick back, relax, turn the heat up and journey with Anthony Bourdain!
Such is a perfect Monday night. Pray do tell, how yours was?
