Obligatory Post: Some Truths About Living in New York City

[photo] Because I’ve been here for 7.5 weeks, which makes me suuuuuuch an expert. The squirrels are some of the laziest, brazen assholes around. I saw a squirrel straight up stop midway through sauntering across my walking path, and look at me like, “whatchu gonna do, bitch?” Then I’m pretty sure he flipped me the […]

Gramercy Food and Drinks: East Japanese Restaurant

I’m not quite sure what I was expecting with conveyor belt sushi. Okay, I kinda do. For some reason, I had visions of a really classy bamboo belt, with elegantly plated fish and rolls. Also, there is inexplicably dry ice creating a nice fog in this vision, and also a boat carrying a dragon roll […]

I also didn’t realize that people, uh, don’t go to bars by themselves. And after having the fifth or so person ask me where I go around Gramercy Green […]

A Better Update, Maybe

Okay, I promised a better update, and now that I’ve discovered a TV lounge where I can half-watched Chopped while I work on the computer, I feel like I can finally take a breath and let people know what I’m actually up to. First night, went out with my mom to Becco in the theatre district. […]
