I should just give in and buy the shoes I’m coveting before the price is normalized to the euro and jumps 20%
Peace in the Middle East! Any remaining respect (hope?) I had for our president’s intellect is now gone
Question of the day: which one of them was more wrong?
Jason Calacanis has 3200 LinkedIn contacts, and now he wants to meet them all. Which either means the “connection” paradigm is a bit off, or I’m a real hermit
Scene: a crowded N train, just before Christmas. A panhandler enters the car–old, dirty, hunched. As the doors close he breaks into song to encourage handouts. “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire….”
He finishes before the train reaches its next stop, and surveying the situation, he continues. “Sing it with me now.
“If you want my body and you think I’m sexy….”
“The rest of the United States is a passive spectator while about half of 45 percent of 85,000 or so Republican caucus voters promote a [candidate] to the coveted status of ‘front-runner’….” All hail the 19,000 religious Iowans determining our fate
Good philosophy from Mark. Last year I stopped shoving myself onto overcrowded trains, and I’ve enjoyed my commute more ever since
Totally my next welcome mat
For the third straight year (and prompted by Jason for the third time as well) here is my list of travels for 2007. Per tradition multiple-visit locations are denoted with an asterisk:
New York, NY * (home base)
Livingston, NJ *
New City, NY *
La Fortuna, Costa Rica
Playa Conchal, Costa Rica
Half Moon Bay, CA
Dallas, TX * (N.B. I flew to Dallas four times in 2007, and never stayed longer than 18 hours)
New Paltz, NY
Marco Island, FL
Lake George, NY
San Francisco, CA
Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Last year I was able to extend my streak of international travel to five years (and seven of the last nine) thanks to the Costa Rica vacation. I’m probably not straying too far in ’08, though.
