Kylie's high school friend was living a depressing life there. I hope she made it to NYC like she said she was planning on, but i doubt it.

29 April 2011


just wanted to tell you about this little tradition bun-bun and i share. whenever we're going to the same place after work, we attempt what we call "subway meet-ups". as i'm typically coming from penn station, and he from chelsea, we often both end up using the 2/3 or the A/C/E lines, but starting at different stations. we coordinate our timing and car selection so that we end up with a together-ride. tonight's is going to be very challenging, here is an excerpt from our planning session:

Rob: train meet up?
me: definitely
i was thinking about it this morning
its going to be a complicated one!
Rob: im more excited about it than is rational
me: maybe the toughest yet
Rob: you arriving to penn?
me: yes
we're gonna need the uptown E
you're only one stop away right?
Rob: yes. ok, where is the best spot on train for the transfer to g?
me: well thats what im concerned about
the best spot for the transfer is the first car
my access point at penn is at the back of the train
and i hardly ever make the walk to the front before the train comes
Rob: and i enter platform at first
same happens to me if im trying to get to back
me: so im worried that i wont be able to get to the front
Rob: what if i ride in the front looking out the front window and ill try to watch for you walking down the platform
if you're not at the front of the train i could always get out and wait for you at 34th st
me: yeah, i like that
i have cell service until i go through the turnstiles
ill tell you "im going in", and you get on the very next E train
and then ill book it to the front
Rob: lets make that our plan. no matter what we'll meet at the first car either in train or on platform
me: perfect
and as always....my train is scheduled to arrive at 6.25
but its usually a bit slow on fridays
of course ill keep you posted the entire way
Rob: let me know when youre njt is coming into the city and ill start shutting down
me: constant updates
Rob: ok

it is going to be just like this:

i'll let you know how it works out, and will also attempt to take pictures.

thx for the tip carlygoogles.

what is holmes doing?!



hogging the remote.

OMFG fleece string!

thx neely!!!!!111
(ps - whose cheerwine is that?)

what is uno doing?

being pitiful in his circle chair. he used to be the apple of my neely's-cats-eye, until i laid my eye on holmes. quick story though: when uno was a kitten and had his kitten teeth, we were playing and he bit me on the hand and when i looked down his tooth was laying on it. it was a fang, too. the end.

speaking of holmes, here's a pixie of him and his string. and a story:
"he loves his fleece string...takes it everywhere and gets distressed if you take it or hide it from him."

what it's like.

i was just remembering how i dry heaved on the E train this morning, and decided to lazily draft up a message to the MTA. joel wanted me to show it to you:
subject: i'm a human being
question: i take the E every morning (around 7am) from court sq to 42nd street, and i find that there is an unusually high frequency of remnants from overnight homeless passengers. this morning, i literally became nauseous from the sights and smells that greeted me. i guess i just want the MTA to freshen up the trains before the morning rush hour begins, and/or put more effort into preventing passengers from using the restroom in them. the E train is especially bad. just a heads up. thanks!
i sent it. i'll let you know.

UPDATE! response!

well, that was fast! little do they know, i also take the G, whose terminal station is also court square, and i see them routinely NOT mopping that train. just standing around with mops and making me wait while they chit chat for 10 minutes. but that's ok, because the G(reat) train is adorable and never smelly or dirty and hardly needs cleaning at all! do you know why they call it the G train? because you GET to take it!

i don't mean to beat a dead goat in the mouth, but...

...i just read this funny chat with amy poehler and aziz ansari in nymag. it's super-cute. it's about that funny list of funny food names that tom haverford recited on last week's parks and rec (which nobody watches even though its in the top 2 funniest shows on tv).

jess sent me this website a couple of days ago, where you can get more.

and they mentioned this in the article. someone made ron swanson's idea of a turkey leg inside of a grilled hamburger patty. "put ketchup on it if you want. i couldn't care less."

don't touch an armadillo.

as much as you may want to....don't.
Based on new evidence, scientists think that the armadillo carries and can spread leprosy to human populations. DNA tests have matched the leprosy strains of some U.S. patients with those of armadillos—among the only animals that carry the bacteria—and though the majority of cases in the U.S. are contracted in countries with higher instances of the disease, these tests indicate that some American patients contracted leprosy through armadillo exposure.

Toot's, the home of good food and fun, is closed due to severe storm damages.
The Broad Street location lost half its roof, causing floor and structural damage after it rained into the building throughout the early morning.
There is no estimate on when the restaurant will be up and running again, but cleaning and repairs are underway.
The Toot's staff did say the business will still cater the Boys & Girls Club Steak & Burger dinner Thursday evening, and the Toot's South location on South Church Street remains open and unaffected. (via)

dad, i'll never forgive you for saying no when i asked to go to toot's a couple of weeks ago. GET WELL SOON, TOOT'S!

omg look what albert haynesworth (alledgedly) did to a lady!
WASHINGTON -- Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor sexual abuse for allegedly fondling the breast of his server in a hotel restaurant in Washington.
A grand jury returned an indictment formally charging Haynesworth over the alleged incident at a downtown Washington hotel in the early hours of Feb. 13. If convicted, the 29-year-old two-time All-Pro faces up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
According to the U.S. attorney's office, the government's evidence shows Haynesworth slid a credit card down the front of the server's dress and fondled her breast.
Haynesworth's attorney, A. Scott Bolden, called the charge disappointing and regretful and said it would be a difficult case for the government to prove. Haynesworth is innocent and several witnesses would vouch that the alleged conduct never happened, Bolden said.
"We maintain his innocence, and now the fight begins," Bolden said. (via)

the nashville predators won their first playoff series in franchise history last night at gaylord entertainment center sommet center bridgestone arena.

"It was a good play by Toots. He was driving to the net. I just came in late, and he created a lot of space and got the defense to follow," Spaling said. "The goalie was out of the net. I just shot it in."

that's my favorite line from the tennessean article

jicyww, the grizzlies have also made franchise history by winning a playoff game. in fact, they've won two and lead the spurs 2-1 in the series.

here's what the police have come up with as a profile for the unidentified long island serial killer:
He is most likely a white male in his mid-20s to mid-40s. He is married or has a girlfriend. He is well educated and well spoken. He is financially secure, has a job and owns an expensive car or truck. He may have sought treatment at a hospital for poison ivy infection. As part of his job or interests, he has access to, or a stockpile of, burlap sacks. (via)

"I don’t need another tax cut. Warren Buffett doesn’t need another tax cut. Not if we have to pay for it by making seniors pay more for Medicare. Or by cutting kids from Head Start. Or by taking away college scholarships that I wouldn’t be here without. That some of you wouldn’t be here without. And I believe that most wealthy Americans would agree with me. They want to give back to the country that’s done so much for them. Washington just hasn’t asked them to." (via)

"Every now and then, an actor or actress manages to somehow channel the vitality of youth — that indefinable, natural, unprocessed glamour full of possibility and filled with anticipation for an endless future. I've known Blake the actress, and I've known Blake the person, who would surprise many with her down-to-earth coolness. She makes you feel that she, and life, are going to go on forever." (via

the actress who plays the harry potter girl in those harry potter movies was attending brown university. and omg, listen to what those kids did to her!
The Brit beauty might not have magic powers, but a source close to Brown University (where Watson was enrolled from fall 2009 until this past winter) tells us the star's brainy ways may have led to her classmates' heckling – and perhaps a reason why she left the Providence, R.I., institution.

The insider says Watson didn't shy away from class participation and often would "answer something in class and get it right," calling the 21-year-old actress "really smart." Unfortunately, this brought out the sophisticated wit and cinematic expertise of her Ivy League peers.

According to the source, her classmates "would respond [to her answer] with a quote from 'Harry Potter.'" The most popular choice was "Three points for Gryffindor!" – a reference to the movie's dormitory system, and a congratulatory phrase in the films when a student got a correct answer.

look, it's the same height as 7 wtc! twin towers!

ugh, libya.

yesterday, some shit went down in libya that got a bunch of journalists, photographers, etc. killed.
BENGHAZI, Libya — Tim Hetherington, a conflict photographer who was a director and producer of the Afghan war documentary “Restrepo,” was killed in the besieged city of Misurata, Libya, on Wednesday, and three photographers working beside him were wounded, one fatally, when they came under fire at the city’s front lines.

Chris Hondros of the Getty Images photo agency died later of devastating brain trauma. Guy Martin, who was filing photographs to the Panos agency, suffered a severe pelvic wound, said Andre Liohn, a colleague who was at the triage center where the photographers were rushed by rebels after they were struck.
above is a short film he created called "diary", which is the last work produced by tim hetherington. his own words about it:
"'Diary' is a highly personal and experimental film that expresses the subjective experience of my work, and was made as an attempt to locate myself after ten years of reporting. It's a kaleidoscope of images that link our western reality to the seemingly distant worlds we see in the media." (via)
getty photographer chris hondras was also killed. the guardian has compiled a retrospective of his work.
