*just a quick hurricane-related note: we're doing okay! our upper west side hood stayed pretty safe. the rain & wind was pretty intense yesterday & our power flickered on & off for hours, but ben & i just stayed warm & cozy holed up inside. we caught up on sleep & tons of homework, watched a few movies, wore thick fuzzy socks, enjoyed the free days off of work & school.* & now back to our regular programming! there are a lot of pictures here, meaning lots of great updates. so let's get started:

what our couch looks like when i write mid-term papers:
 washington square park @night:
 pizza date! can you spot benny in this picture? it's a difficult one:
 this picture taken right before ben's slice split in half. you can see the beginnings of the tragedy below:
 & i had a little creeper waiting in line to order:
what do ben & shayla do after grabbing slices at koronets (& why is shayla referring to herself in 3rd person)? top it all off with chocolate malts at tom's, of course! (when we eat out, we go ALL out. we're talkin' dinner AND dessert. gotta live it up before the chilluns come!)
 engrossed in the spanish detective show that was playing at tom's:
 see the black purse my left hand is holding? when we got up to leave, that purse caught on that cake cover thing above it, knocked it over, & spilled all the apple turnovers onto the counter. everyone turned to stare & the tom's workers were quietly really mad at us. it was embarrassing, & we hightailed it outta there. a true story. 
 THESE FEET stickin' straight up while he does homework on his laptop. be still my heart:
 a quick late-night visit to ben's lab at columbia to pick up something he forgot yielded this fright. and NO, i'm NOT talking about my baggy MTC sweatpants (they're really cozy & warm & i didn't want to change out of them when we went outside, okay??)
 ben + new season of downton abbey + sunday night + cuddling = unending delight:
 isn't it nice to know that instead of "tracking sandy," your local news is "tracky sandy"?
 you bet your bottom dollar ben & i went for a quick run before hurricane sandy got too out of control! & what's up with those weird dry spots at my waist is what I want to know:
 lavender mint herbal tea at the library of the hotel my boss is staying at 
while they clean the mold out of her apartment:
 an image from our sleepy hollow adventure:
 & some pretty waters from sleepy hollow:
 this magazine helped make my treadmill date slightly more enjoyable.
 an outstanding view atop the discovering columbus exhibit at columbus circle:
 don't mind if i do nyc view #2: 
 slightly dirty unwashed hair for a date night never hurt anyone, right.......?

phew! you made it here to the end. those were a lot of instagram pictures.
hope you enjoyed. stay dry & safe wherever you are!
