You don't know the power of Styrofoam!

I watched "Bolt" tonight.
"Rhino is awesome! He's beyond awesome!! He's Be-Awesome!!!" - Rhino
It was in fact Be-Awesome!
There. I have spoilered my favorite line from the movie. And now, I want to watch it again. Right now.

Still here

Since moving to the City, I have become prone to making all kinds of strange and random generalizations about living here. And observations about what I am learning from my time here. JY has on occasion suggested that I unfairly attribute things to this place. His experience here is wildly different from mine.

Perhaps it's not NYC, it's me. Entirely likely.

Some days I find this City heartbreaking and utterly disappointing, at other times unspeakably beautiful and captivating.

The balance between so many attractive and repellent forces continues to hold me in orbit here.

I thought I would leave after 6 months. But I am still here.

Train + Postal Service + heat =

On the train ride home I had this warm fuzzy feeling wash over me. I wanted to compliment people on their shoes, help them straighten their coat collars, help them retie their ponytails.

I have this happen on occasion now and find it a little bit disconcerting. Maybe it was because, while it's cold outside, it was warm on the F train this evening.

Someone must have been mischannelling something through me. Otherwise I cannot account for it.

But in the spirit of this disembodied feeling let me offer up a little CNSY.

More than skin deep

BBFK and Miss N came out for a visit this weekend. And a fine old time was had. I must tell you, those girls know how to party. Good company and good times, for sure.

I wanted to give a particular hat tip to the Bodies Exhibit. Which was pretty damn amazing. The human body is stunning. You and I, we are works of art. We and everyone we know. I was floored by their ability to capture and reveal this. And at the end of the exhibit, I got to hold a brain. Braaaaaiiiiinnnssss!!!!

I want to be sedated.

How else to soothe the savage beast?

That or punch someone.
