So it seems that NYC and the whole Northeast is about to get pounded by some snow! About time. I’ve been cheated now for two winters from a decent snow fall. Heck, in Colorado Springs we’d have fantastic snows all the way from November through to May or even June. And they were good, honest snows, full of Americana spirit. Here? It’s a bunch of commie liberal pink-o puff snow that has no substance. Damn Democrats. Yeah, I don’t know, I’m sure Democrats will get blamed for this somehow by the Republicans while Republicans will mock Democrats and their "global warming" craziness. Or neither will happen and I’m just a shithead. Sounds plausible
Anyways, it’s Sunday night and I’m looking out my window and while it’s nice and clear of snow now, the snow is falling pretty good and trying it’s best to stick. I have no doubt when I wake up in the morning tomorrow there’ll be plenty of stuck snow.
Went with Larry down to the southern tip of Manhattan again to finish the walk around Battery Park up to the World Trade Center site. It had been brutally interrupted by Work (!) a few weekends ago and now seemed as nice a day as any to do it. It’s a ghost-town down there though on weekends. And you know what’s disappointing? How little work or progress seems to have been made on the Freedom Tower that is being built on the site. Apparently it’s been built high enough to be above ground level, but you could have fooled me. It’s nothing I could see. I am interested to see some progress as it would seem almost reassuring. It’s been nearly 8 years now since it happened and you’d think there’d be something there. I look forward to its eventual state, as the final rendering looks to be very nice:
It was a nice walk to have this afternoon. We then walked around SoHo a bit, checking out the Museum of Modern Art store where there is a LOT of really cool shit that I really wanted to buy. All sorts of ‘modern’ takes on kitchen things and stuff that just looked cool. Me likey. I did end up buying a Muji business card holder for $5. Very basic, very clean, and something I’ve wanted for a while. We then stopped by the Design within Reach store. YEAH RIGHT! Whose reach???? I saw these cool modern bar stools that I had the nerve to sit on……$1700 – EACH. W…T….F!!!!! After casually looking around and saying eff this, it was off to the Apple Store to drool over all that cool shite. Seriously, want lots of money to just buy all their neat computers and iPods and such. After feeling woozy from too much coffee, we ran in and got a slice of pizza – YUM. And finally made it back to the Upper West Side where Larry & I went to Fairway, the city’s most nuts grocery store. Apparently it’s the best prices too, which accounts for the chaos. But seriously, it’s nuts. And Larry made a delicious chicken with Bells seasoning, mashed potatoes and asparagus with gravy. IT WAS AWESOME. How great is it to be with someone who can cook like no one’s business!?
And so now it’s Sunday night and tomorrow it’ll be interesting to see if I’m working from home because of the snow. Yes, I could walk to work. But if it’s like super snowy, who wants to do that????? I bet my boss would make me come in though. I mean, I have no real excuse not to. But I just want to sit at my awesome windows and stare outside! 🙂
I’ll do my best to keep up to date on this blog from now on. In the meantime, feel free to check out my picasaweb.google.com/hobiewan site. Lots of my recent pics are all there as it just is too much effort and time to do that photoweb stuff all myself when Google does it so much better!
