Who Are You, Anyway?

I walked a thousand miles while everyone was asleep...nobody's really seen my million subtleties...

Here On The Island... Long Island

I'm here on Long Island with 'Cosmopol and her family and we're are here for this 3-day workshop on Autism Interventions for kids. It's being hosted by The Elija Foundation. Teaching Verbal Behavior to Children with Autism with Dr. Vince Carbone.

It's being held at the Long Island University CW Post Campus in Brookeville. I have never seen so many McMansions in my life! This is the only college campus I've visited that had a hair salon, and full service nail salon IN the student union. I was excited when Chik-Fil-A finally came to Towson's campus.

I'm bedding down at Cosmo's family home where high jinx is always on the menu...even when the stove is broken! Everyone is very sweet (even the little brother that yammers non-stop and talks WAY TOO MUCH TRASH!) and frets about me being ok.

I'm a low maintenance kinda girl...when I travel...I usually bring everything myself (even the air freshener for those not-so-fresh moments!) I don't need much to make me happy on the road....as long as I get to where I'm going.

Cosmo... she's from the Island... she grew up there... so I have just one question.

How do I end up lost in Long Island with a girl that grew up here? 10 minutes from where she lives? She may tell you on her blog that she hasn't lived there in 12 years....but HipChick ain't buyin' it!

We got lost on the way here, once we got here....basically every time she and I get into her car we end up...somewhere over the rainbow... on the Jericho Turnpike! Tomorrow is our last day here and we'll have to see if we get lost on our way back home.

Wouldn't that be too much?

Nah... that actually might make everything seem balanced and in order!

Since You Been Gone...

"Since you been gone...I can breathe for the first time....I'm so movin on ... yeah, yeah... thanks to you...now I get, I get what I want...since you been gone!"

Whew... just felt like singing.

"You had your chance, you blew it... out of sight out of mind....shut your mouth I just can't it"....

Since you been gone....

Restless and out of sorts... searching for something... but not sure what.

Maybe it's the boots.... wouldn't you know they ran out of my size!
