I decided, that instead of tweeting on this trip, I’d save all my good tweets and use them as a blog post, thus proving that tweeting is just as good as essay writing, not really.  Anyway, here they are.  Enjoy!

Are you allowed to tweet in customs? #iftheydon’tseeyou

Brr. Should have brought my P coat instead of my Arcteryx. #windbreaker #unstylish

And my hipster scarf, too. These people are hip! Everywhere!

“Hehay, .. look at me, I’m in New Yahk. Hey asshole, I’m walking heah!” -Wayne’s World

This taxi driver is the most racist comedian I’ve ever met. I have to laugh, though, or he’ll push me out in Holland Tunnel. For real.

Can’t beat street meat.


“Free discount” - that doesn’t make any sense but it sure caught my attention when the guy yelled it in Times Square.

“Hey, let’s go check out the Microsoft store in Times Square” said nobody ever. The Hershey’s store was twice as busy.

“Hey Microsoft, if you offer free wifi in times square to promote Surface… Make sure it doesn’t suck.” - Ungrateful me

I’m standing right beside a really famous actor but I can’t remember his name or anything that he’s been in. But he’s so famous!

Figured it out. David Rasche. He was the star of ‘80s TV show Sledge Hammer! Awesome!

No, I’m not going to eat sushi in New York. But yes I’ll eat at an izakaya.

Staci is really, really awesome this trip. I think she likes big cities.

It’s so nice knowing someone in the city you go to. It’s even better when they give you a place to stay. #cleantowel #thebest

I am going to play Magic in this awesome bar.

Just saw an usher beating up a patron outside a theater on Broadway. Actual blows, big fight, police were called. Everyone’s a critic.

Playing pool with fedora and a cigarette hanging off your lip really actually does make you cool. Sadly, the camera froze from how cool I was. #nophoto

This pizza place just played 8 songs about breakups in a row. Including that one that goes, “You didn’t have to CUT me OFF…” Someone’s an unhappy pizza parlour owner.

I may be jet lagged, but … sorry, what was the question?

Xmas Wish List 2012


“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
