August 14, 2003- New job! My boss (also her first day – revamped department) admits she doesn’t get along with computers. It’s a busy day as we set up; later everyone is chatting and she gently bumps my monitor. The lights go out at that instant. β€œWhat did I do?!” Yep, the Northeast blackout – my boss caused it.

Signs of the Times III

Welcome to another chapter in this fine series. Not that there is a shortage of wisdom around, I just don’t feel like editing out the crudely exaggerated genitalia that accompanies it.

On a mailbox across from a school. I guess the best life lessons are learned outside the classroom.

Proof that fortune cookies are as authentic as pro wrestling.
Well no, I take that back. Nothing is more real than wrasslin’.

No idea to whom this was intended, but I am willing to bet that someone else saw this, and thought the person who done them wrong thunk up this creative apology placement, and forgave them.

Written on one of the beams on the Brooklyn Bridge. 80’s references always melt my heart.

4/5/6 station, corner of Canal & Lafayette. You need your gold card to get into this club.
It’s overpriced, hot, crowded and noisy, supposedly part of the twisted romantic vibe, because everyone wants in.

Side Street of The South Street Seaport. And here, you thought they missed your special day!

Ketchup With Us #23: At Rest

Ms Mel and ODNT knwo that a picture is worth 57 words. Easiest link-up ever. All we want is a picture. Give us your best bi***/a**hole resting face. Ketchup With Us

So I am looking through my photos and though I do smile a lot, yeap there they are!
The beard does accentuate the expression.Through the years:

2008 – I was feeling artsy on a sunny morning. Notice no beard yet!


2009 – My friend’s wedding. I was definitely, ahem, ‘at rest’. Once they fired up the 80’s music though…

Last Fall:
sammiches
Part of a class project – eat at a food-place-ery of a cuisine you’ve never had.
For me – Malaysian sandwiches. Everyone laffed at my expression, now I know why!
Despite my expression, that sammich was awesome.
Ok you want to see the sammich don’t you…

What’s a train ride delayed on the bridge mean? Selfie time.
I’m serious, everyone does this.






Double Bonus: At the time I was organizing this post, I took a break for lunch and ran into an old friend while wlking down the street. The first thing she asked me “What’s wrong? You look, I don’t know…” Had to laugh at that one.
