Wordy C: Queens Center Mall And Other Random Musings...

Queens Center Mall And Other Random Musings...


I briefly popped into Blogger to chat about shopping for the boys for the first day of school in 2010. I have a list that Noah and Stephen made (by printing out web pages) and feel a bit like a Quirky After-Holiday Mrs. Santa on a treasure hunt (LOL). They like picking out their clothes so I frequently let them. A small thing, I know, but a big step on the road to independent thinking. :-)

It is 27 degrees, so I shall be quick running the streets while periodically blabbing about my day. I love blogging on the fly with my laptop. Maintaining an outside office is mad cool and gives me lots of freedom to decide when, where and how to work. I never know what sights I shall be treated to because I am always on the hunt for some eye candy and will detour in a minute if I find something interesting to explore.

I also have to do my year in review photo-montage. That project is turning out to be quite a trip because my kids are in charge (ROTFL). I'm serious. They get to select all the photographs... It's almost like playing real life memory flash cards with Mr. Autism and Mr. PDD-NOS (LOL). Stephen, the Blur Minion is starting to connect the concept of the color of objects. Noah, the Net Geek, is great with shapes and colors. They both are not where they are supposed to be with their speech delays, but Stephen definitely knows where he wants to be going. Dude has been babbling like crazy during the entire school break (LOL). Noah knows a lot more than he lets on and will periodically shock you with quirky, random, brief conversations only to revert back to non-verbal indicators.

Ever have a 3 year old or a 7 year old for a boss? Toss in learning disabilities and life gets really interesting (LOL). I am soooo blogging about this topic later because we have been very busy working on our visual projects between snack-age and tea breaks. It has been a lot of fun (LMAO).

I love my kids but they make me crazy. The shorties can go out of their way to make life very interesting when they get pissed off. Watching them fight over clothes was something I thought girls only did (LOL). Geez, was I ever wrong... What the heck was I thinking? Thus, the impromptu shopping spree to end the shorty clothing wars... ;-) I have a lot of appointments to keep today but really wanted to stop and pop in long enough to share the Queens Center Mall Directory. The shopping options are mad cool so I want to share them with you because I have zipping around these buildings down to a science. You should visit this place if you have time. It has two distinct buildings, two parking structures connected by a private overpass and covers two New York City blocks. Besides being gorgeous and huge, there is an awesome selection of food, professional service businesses and brand store shopping there.

My shorties like to have mall adventures here. Sans kids, I usually get in and out in under an hour because I routinely show up just before it opens, target my stores (when the shorties aren't around to endlessly distract me) and go hunting for bargains. If the boys come we could be here for hours (LOL). I think I mentioned that Stephen has an escalator fetish, but I digress... (LMAO).

I like talking about my kids. The number one benefit? The wee people have opened some interesting doors to stellar relationships and conversations. If you are going to blog, the more varied the conversations, the better. Don't tell me you haven't noticed I talk more about life in general than real estate (LOL). Why? Well, why not? Don't you talk about Grays Anatomy? House? 21? Fringe? HGTV? Glee? Bones? Lie To Me? How Cable-vision dropped fave stations even though subscribers paid their bills every month to watch them in the line up?

I like HGTV and the Food Channel but now my friends come over to see my RCN channels because Cable-vision dropped them. I lost NY-1 when I left Time Warner, so I get the withdrawal issues and actually do the same thing when I go visit my friends in Brooklyn (ROTFLMAO). I loved NY-1. I am still pissed off that RCN couldn't work out a deal with Time Warner about that station... That's life. We can't always get what we want, eh? When we do it is usually very cool.  :-)

I think blogging is cool.

Why is blogging so cool? Because it is your blog and you can do what ever you want with it. Sharing your day is never a useless exercise when your goal is simply to have a conversation with the people who read you. Go write about what ever you want and may your digital conversations and e-mail be a blessing to you for 2010. :-)

"C" ---- I find reading about your minions (as you call them) and your life -- Noah and Stephen are most definitely very special.  I like your philosophy.

Thank you, Liz. Blogging with and for and about the wee people is fun. :-)

Does it count if I have a boss that sometimes acts like a three year old. I'm sure your guys must be a handful in a mall my friend.
