That's not why I'm sad, though. I've never actually been there, since i have the best lys ever within spitting distance.
No, I'm sad because I read about the Suss sale with 50-70% yarns. So. Monday is my big work day. The Squid is in school and I'm not at the store. So I get a lot of knitting and design work done on Mondays. However, 70% off yarn is not to be missed. So I interrupted my precious day of alone-time, and went out to catch a bus to Suss. It's really within walking distance, but it'd 102 degrees today. And in New York that means stifling, smelly, sticky, and gross. So I waited for the bus, sniffing in fumes on the sidewalk while the bus arrived 17 minutes late.
I enjoyed my 6 minute air conditioned ride, got of, got smacked in the face with heat and bus exhaust, walked 2 blocks, and Suss is closed. Not closing, but closed. Yesterday, to be exact.
Now, I did call. I got a message saying it was closing, blah blah blah, big sale, blah blah, come on down, blah blah. So I did. And they closed yesterday.
So i walked 2 blocks, waited 23 minutes for another bus which had broken air conditioning, and am finally home. Just in time to whine, pound a glass of water, and go pick up the squid at school. and spend another 2 bucks to take her home on the bus. I'm going to walk there, but I cannot handle the usual piggy-back ride home today. Heat index is 112. and I don't even have cheap new luxury yarns to soothe me.
