An Ode to the Zip Code!!!
I have a HOME, an apartment, a residence, a ZIP CODE!!!! 10034 … all very significant because for 4 years, 3 months and 12 days – I did not have a home. “Perma-tour” I called it. Sure there were mini stints here and there: a couple musicals, a few weeks with my parents around the holidays, but NOTHING that required purchasing hangers! Or pillows! Or comforters! (Comforters are one of my favorite items in life.)
It’s been absolutely INSANE to actually UNPACK. I put my toothbrush in the bathroom and thought, “This is officially where my toothbrush lives!” Even though I immediately scooped it back up and hit the road again this week, my toothbrush lives in New York City. And so do I.
But today I’m heading to the west coast to have Lasik surgery! Hooray! That’s why I’ve been wearing glasses this past week. (Wasn’t an ode to Ingrid or Lisa Loeb or anything.) Why the west coast for Lasik? I found a Groupon. I know! I never thought I’d trust my eyes to a glorified coupon, but here I go.
Back on road, and truthfully, with 19 shows already in 2012 and 30 more on the schedule for March and April, I won’t be spending too much time in New York, but it’s still home … and that’s so nice to say.
