my obsessive ipod

28-Jul-05

first off, i’ll not capitalize the “p” in ipod. if steve jobs wants to come after me, let him. my new ipod is playing favorites. first off, well, second off, i now have an ipod. i realize that i am the last new yorker to have an ipod, but i’m now the proud owner of […]

hot hot hot

27-Jul-05

it’s hot in nyc. actually, it’s probably hot where you are too, unless you are in nome or something. and i know it’s hotter elsewhere, like phoenix and atlanta and wherever. but, still, it’s damn hot. and humid.

nice new surroundings

it’s amazing what moving a little furniture will do for your outlook. i’ve always complained that our apartment, which is nice-sized with a huge kitchen by relatively inexpensive one bedroom manhattan apartment standards, nevertheless feels crowded and cluttered. who knew that making the room smaller would solve the problem?

cheap ploy for attention

19-Jul-05

i like the gothamist.com site–it’s a nice compendium of nyc stuff, even if the “royal we” point of view (“gothamist is tired of all this crap, etc.”) gets annoying. today they had a story on charlie and the chocolate factory that was basically a rant about how people can’t behave in the movies anymore. and […]

wtf is this?

18-Jul-05

ok, so i’ve been derelict. and don’t expect much the first day back. there’s no special reason i haven’t blogged. just didn’t do it. i tend to get interested in things, get very enthusiastic, and then tire of them. usually permanently.
