These rainy days.

^^classic Gus.^^
These rainy days, man. I'm kind of loving them. Manhattan is a new breed of beautiful in the rain, and the mood is ideal for this time of year. It's as if the universe were saying, alright, i'll give you a couple of days, but after these days i'm going to kick you around pretty good until the holidays are over. Well, bring it on, universe. I've got my lists. I've got my calendars. I've got my lists of lists I need to make. But I so wish this season were a little longer. I would be just fiiiine with 6 months of autumn.

I'm taking the day off tomorrow. Earlier this week, I found out that all of my rollover vacation days needed to be used up by September 30th. So that was exciting, and prompted me to reevaluate my "hold onto those vacation days until the last possible second" strategy. Plus, I have a comp day that needs using, so here we are. Tomorrow we'll be playing tourist, and I'm pretty excited. It's been a lifelong (or week-long. whatever.) dream of mine to play tourist in this city of ours. It doesn't happen nearly as often as it should.

Happy almost weekend!
