The smoke alarm says, "Fire fire fire," in a calm lady voice, on top of the usual beeeeeep. Seems like overkill? I had never heard this before. For a second, I thought my roommate was making fun of the alarm.
Whenever I get bored on the internet, I compulsively think, "Hotmail, Salon, Livejournal, Members," because those were the 4 places to check for new content when I was bored on the early-2000's internet. "Members" referred to a local music scene messageboard (URL started with members.boardhost.com).
My ideal day these days: Wake up at 8. Poke around on internet & drink iced coffee. Go running. Poke around on internet while eating large arugula salad and drinking seltzer. Work on interesting research project (without concrete deadline) while random shows/movies are playing on tv....
Got tailed by neighborhood security for taking phone pics (from the sidewalk!) of some of the crazy mansions. Lol, dude, don't put crazy mansions in the middle of Brooklyn then. Sorry I'm reusing an IKEA bag and wearing sneakers with no socks.
Fun day walking around with one of my best college friends (on a 20-hour layover from EWR): Dog lake and biggest meadow in Prospect Park, chocolate chess pie at the library, Ai Weiwei and Swoon exhibitions at Brooklyn Museum of Art.
Watching "Who Do You Think You Are?" on housesitting cable and wondering what it would feel like to learn this stuff, were one's family tree not already established back to the early 1700's #parentalhobbies#familiaritybreedscontempt
There's a liquor store around the corner that advertises, "3 bottles of wine for under $15," on a chalkboard on the sidewalk. They mean that there are 3 bottles of wine in the store that cost less than $15 (each). They make me so angry.
