Peter and I have two anniversaries: the anniversary of when we began our relationship and then our wedding anniversary - and these two dates are almost five years apart. Today happens to be the first anniversary, when Peter and I watched our first Oscars together. As the story goes, I invited Peter for dinner and he never left, and here we are happily celebrating 20 years later. My how time flies.
Peter and I generally create a celebration with food, which we'll have to do this year as there will be no Oscars, at least on television. I can hardly believe that ABC has been removed from our cable company (Cablevision), as of midnight last night. Money disputes they say. I say it's a clash of the titans - huge egos - and we the people are the pawns. I hate being held hostage in someone else's war and would seriously like to find another mode of receiving television services. This is the second time this has happened in the last several months. The earlier instance concerned the Food Network - one of our favorites of course. What did they say in that movie, "I'm mad as h... and I'm not going to take it any more." Enough sour grapes; this is our anniversary!
with our lobsters, oysters, california caviar and Gewurztraminer, which we'll enjoy this evening at The American Hotel in Sag Harbor - where we met. Now that sounds like a proper celebration!
