well, the title says it all. bf is officially a yalie! and i couldn’t be more proud of him. new haven is a beautiful city and i think it’s going to make a wonderful home for bf for the next two years (at least). i can’t wait to spend some of my fall weekends there perusing the vintage stores and doing all the fun stuff that new havenites do.
i had to cut my visit short thanks to that witch, irene (although i pretty much helped him with the essentials before i left). it’s a good thing i left when i did because the next morning they shut down all the public transportation.
so, then comes irene! i didn’t really know what to think, especially since i come from miami where every summer there is impending doom from some hurricane or another. you tend to get a little desensitized. but i also know that nyc is not equipped to handle hurricanes. i think the moment it became real for me was when they shut down the subway system and closed the airports- also when the giant tree in the back of the yard woke me up at 3 in the morning sounding like something out of the exorcist. (not fun). we were very blessed in our home though. no damage or anything. we were just without power for a day. no biggie.
the street over, however, was not so lucky. one man in particular had four trees and a telephone pole fall on his house. wow.
before all of this though, bf took me to see ‘the help’. i absolutely loved it (except for the awful wigs). the story stayed true to the book for the most part (while changing some things around for cinema purposes) and i absolutely loved loved loved the wardrobe. the costumes were beautiful. i would recommend it to everyone. i laughed and cried alot and you didn’t hear it from me but i heard a few sniffles from bf too!!! ;)
