Garfield minus Garfield →
Kudos to Alex for finding this strangely engrossing and hilarious tumblr filled with Garfield comic strips sans Garfield. Oh Jon Arbuckle, who knew you were such a creepy character? The most disturbing part: I’m pretty sure I know more than a few people whose lives are strikingly similar to these strips…

I’m Not Running for President, but ... →
In this Op-Ed in the NYTimes, Mayor Bloomberg expounds on what we really need to see in a presidential candidate. Just another reason I love NYC.
I’ve been neglecting posting due to work overload and no internet connection at the apartment. Hopefully, next time this happens I’ll at least send a few fun phone images.
The Advantages of Closing a Few Doors →
This NYT article offers a little more insight into human nature: the dichotomy between moving forward with fewer options or stagnating by keeping all our options open. The thuds of old doors closing isn’t pleasant, but I think the sound of the one right new door opening probably resembles a sick Jimmy Page solo…which, of course, makes for an easy decision…

You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.– Colette (1873 - 1954)
Serious Sipping →
Marijuana-infused gin and Contreau Caviar? I’m glad someone is finally shaking up the cocktail scene. I’m getting tired of those lo-cal vodka sodas anyway. The NY Post and the NY Times both printed articles yesterday offering strange new inebriating concoctions. Who doesn’t love a good excuse to drink? And now that absinthe is legal, we won’t have to wait ‘til...
A Chat with Ken Friedman →
This posting it the NYT’s Diner’s Journal reveals that Ken Friedman (owner of the Spotted Pig) is opening two new restaurants, both of which sound promising. What I find most interesting is how Friedman unsmoothly reveals that at Freeman’s “The food is never that good.” I’m now having second thoughts about waiting 2 hours to score brunch there…

Smaller Version of the Solar System Is Discovered →
This article in the New York Times makes me excited for new cosmic discoveries. Although, I had a dream last night that the Earth was attacked by fierce aliens that spared few….Surprisingly, I woke up refreshed.
Hitch your wagon to a star.– Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
Les Halles →
Went to Anthony Bourdain’s Les Halles last night for dinner and it was absolutely amazing. I think I’m still full. Every single thing I put in my mouth was so succulently perfect. The dimly lit atmosphere is intimate and bustling at the same time, and every server has a French accent. Just one part of my perfect Valentine’s Day.
McCarren Park Pool to Be Commandeered by Children,... →
According to New York Magazine’s Dailly Intelligencer, “the man” is trying to turn McCarren Park Pool into a swimming pool. Hmmm…an amazing outdoor show venue or a dirty public swimming pool? Oh, the cruelty of it all. Ghostland was so good there this past summer.
Strange ProfNet of the Day...
I can’t figure out my remote, and neither can you, right? Those buttons are just there to enrage us. What the heck is “TPS”? “aspect”? “sound virtualizer”? Something for those who can’t take real sound? I’d love to hear you rant about remotes and all the other too-complicated technology in your life. I agree. I can barely get my TV to turn...

Strange ProfNet of the Day...
So Which Presidential Candidate is the Antichrist? This is for a piece I’m writing for [omitted]. I can’t quite figure out who the Antichrist is supposed to be in the Bible, and then which one of our leading presidential candidates is supposed to be him here on earth. Lots of nuts making the case for each candidate. Why? Why does American have this strange nexus between plain old ...

Where did I find this? Thrillist maybe? It’s so very cool. This gallery is awesome, too bad it’s all the way in Canada. I’m going to pilfer some images and post them. Delicious.
ProfNet of the Day...
I’m looking for experts to talk about the proliferation of celebs checking into hospitals for mental health issues. Britney Spears, a “Grey’s Anatomy” star and now Delta Burke. Also, is checking into a hospital for exhaustion a euphemism for checking into the psych ward? And furthermore, is the term “psych ward” an outdated, politically incorrect...
Dance like it hurts, love like you need money, work when people are watching.– Scott Adams
Yum. This really makes me want a bigger kitchen…instead I have a stove in my living room. Or rather, a kitchden.
Work is on overdrive today...
I feel like I’m running a million miles a minute! Plus, it seems all my friends are having issues at the same time. Make the orange blinking stop! I have no idea how I’m going to get all this done…
Strange ProfNet of the Day...
I am astounded by some of the stories writers are working on. I’m going to try to post the most outrageous one I get each day. Below, TONGUES: I am looking for medical professionals to help me with a story I am working on about the human tongue, with regard to the following: How does the tongue taste (how do taste buds work)? How it enables us to talk. What it is — a muscle? An...
