I stumbled upon this discussion today where someone brings up the difference between people raised in an "Ask Culture" or a "Guess Culture". I like this thought it explains behavior that cause most roommate fights. I also think that regardless of if …
Updating has been difficult lately. Mostly because I've moved! I'm now about 5 blocks further away from the hosue I grew up in. Every year I seem to go 5 more blocks down 8th ave.
Getting all of our stuff into this new house was a chore. Andrew and myself have just a tad too many things to throw in a bag and deliver to a new homestead. It would have been an impossible task if it weren't for a few friends who showed up in the nick of time to lend a hand.
My good friend Jason was the first to show up and stayed with us all day and into the night. This is the 3rd time he's done this and all he's ever asked for was lunch and dinner. (and beer - which I still owe him) My brother was around for a little while and helped move my television into our van. It was a gift that I've been paying for ever since. While beautiful (HD, good speakers, lots of inputs) it's about 300 pounds of suffering, that moves once a year. It took a few hours before we moved it out of the van. Caroline showed up a bit later and immediatly called for backup. Both Caroline and Tina moved box after box well into the night. I'm fairly certian I'm slightly responcible messing up their plans for the next two days, school and work come secondary when you're as tired as they were when they left. Late comers were Jeremy, my Mother and Mike, who helped get some of the details (and heavy lifting) that we were missing after hours of labor.
The entire night ended (for most people) with a lovely diner at my favorite restraunt Two Boots. Thanks to my Father many delicious dishes were had by all of us. We were tired, hungry, and grumpy and it made the night good again.
Thank you everybody who helped. I'm still sore, but I would have been broken if it weren't for you. Me and Andrew are getting the place setup and will have a housewarming in a few weeks. Much free food for everyone.
Even today as I write this, I still have other boxes left to move. I also figure my moving karma slightly lacking, I've helped a few people in my time, but I think after 3 moves in 3 years I need to give a little bit more back. Just remember, if you helped me, you've now got positve moving Karma, it's going to come in handy one day.
So this past weekend I celebrated my 23rd birthday. I had a lot of fun.
Normally I plan a party like this.
1) Pick a day (and forget to tell people right away)
2) Find a venue (my house, your house, whatever)
3) Add people
4) Add music
5) Add beer
I am at sarah's. She is cool, and my girlfriend. She loves me. And wine. but maybe not as much as I love wine.
(that's sarah's laugh)
We just spend some time reading her old diaries from 1992, she says lots about herself from back then. Bad …
I'll write something later, this is just to remind me that I want to.
And it's public because... you should know it was much fun. =D
I spent yesterday walking around manhattan with my friend Brian looking for (among other things) size 14 shoes. Manhattan doesn't carry them. In fact most places don't carry size 14 shoes, they carry up to size 13. I'm a 12 personally, so when I goto…
I'm happy about the commerce bank being built down the block. The private parking lot was nice and all, and I did enjoy looking at the converted pig box that used to serve as a delivery.. vehicle, but I think the bank will be a lot more useful. I'll …
I did a 180 in the space of one and a half lanes. I love driving in light snow. Not hellish deep snow I vowed never to drive again with (at all ever noun noun verb noun).
By the way a 180 being a U-Turn.
I had my 21st birthday the other night and peo…
I can't be bothered with this shaving shit anymore.
So like... Emily Vs. Brian, or something to that effect.
The point is, Brian gets more comments. And I hate to say its because people are lazy but... yea people are lazy. It's easier to respond to something stupid then to something that makes you thi…
But its well deserved.
So I got up today and went to work. I took a cab because I was late. I had a 3:30 appointment that got rescheduled for 11:30 but some stroke of luck I had arrived at 11:10 - early. Spring and Greenwich (near…
