Last night I was on my way home from dinner at a friend’s house and there was a man on the train singing his favorite songs in full voice. The man, from what I believe is on the spectrum, and his singing was short bursts of melody with indecipherable lyrics.
For the past month or so, when I am riding the 5 train around 8 PM on a Saturday, someone lights up an cigarette.
I am on a bus that takes about 40-minutes to go 5 miles. With the wait and the ride, it may have been quicker to walk.
But it’s cold outside.
The outside of our apartment windows were dirty when we moved in. We moved in December 31, 2012 and we haven’t cleaned them once. Continue reading
We had some nasty weather here in NYC yesterday, which resulted in hundreds if not thousands of mortally wounded umbrellas left to die on the streets of NYC. I would have to say it’s the highest number of umbrella deaths I have seen in one day in NYC.

Our office provides a hot breakfast on Wednesday mornings. It’s a great perk that’s been happening for years at our company.
Family breakfast is great way to get us in the office early on a Wednesday, excited about tackling hump day. The team that cooks for us also cleans our offices, and they are top notch.
Every once in a while someone will make homemade tamales for family breakfast and they are quite possibly the best I have ever had. Someone even drew a cartoon picture of a tamale with a face on it, as a homage to our favorite breakfast item, and called him Mr. Tamale. I know when I see his silly grin on the cafe wall, it’s going to be an amazing Wednesday.
Fingers crossed for seeing Mr. Tamale this morning, but I’d happily settle for eggs and bacon.
New York is a big city, but you run into people you know, more often than you would think.
Apparently, NYC school kids are on vacation this week. Happy birthday to me!
I am convinced that you see the craziest shit on the NYC subways on Saturdays.
Shopping for groceries in NYC is kind of a pain in the ass. Stores are tiny, aisles are tight, and prices are high. If you are looking to buy a weeks worth of groceries in person, it’s generally going to be a painful effort.
