Broke fi broke

Qoute of the day:

"Its not about that 70/30 stuff, we do it 50/50." - Guy talking about how he pays for dinner with his girlfriend when they go out to McDonalds tonight.

It actually snowed today

Sunday was just the warm up for what to be is the craziest snow i've seen since I got out here.

Needless to say it doesn't compare to how we roll in WI, but it is still more than most New Yorkers expected today.

Qoute of the day

"My family had to move because of white people. Then we have 'My family had to move because of super white people.' How can you not call that a musical theatre moment."

Its snowing, alot.

After going through weeks of 45 degree days, we finally have our first real snow storm that i've seen this winter.

It is really funny to see all the snow covered people freaking out.

I heard someone in passing call this a blizzard as well.

DDR makes me smile

I have many things that make me happy and my new toy is definitely one of those things.

There is also a secret language that 14 year olds have. The easiest way to explain it is that it uses a series of hand gestures and head knods/bobs to communicate emotions while saying 'he said this, she did that'. I wasn't listening to the conversation because I was listening to some radiohead but it went something like this:

Girl1- happy, excited, unsure, confused
Girl2-clarifying, reassuring, excited, questioning
Girl1-surprised, unsure, understanding, reassuring

I decided to take out my headphones at this point and they were talking about shampoo.

Shallom Shabbos. My 1/32 bit of jew comes out on friday to celebrate.

I heart tourists that walk slow

Something about walking through times square when I get off work has made me want to listen to Wilco for the ride home... Its either that or the eternal sunshine soundtrack.

In any case, I have gotten better at pissing off taxi drivers by unnecessarily crossing when they have a green light, thus causing all the sheep to follow and stop mid cross and debate their path. Its as if tourists have never crossed a street before and must rely on others for assistance.

I do not mind asking about trains or where to get tickets for shows, but the rhetorical questions of 'if I want to go to a higher numbered street, would I go up or downtown?' The other thing that really annoys me is when I have headphones in and people still try to talk to me.

Headphones = I really don't want to be bothered.

Lastly, if you ever want me to call you again, you should probably text me your cell phone number. My phone got lost and I remember very few of them by heart.

A new new home

Since moving out of the hostel, my life has been mostly work with the occasional visit from a friend or basement rave.

The video is still not done, but its fairly close to completion.

Above is the view out my window. If you are from La Crosse, you should know what the picture on the right is.
