Hives Nearly Made Me Pee Myself

The Hives have one of the most exciting live shows. I remember seeing them in Irving Plaza years ago and the audience was dancing and jumping around so furiously that I thought the 2nd floor balcony was going to collapse with the force of the stomping. Madness!




This video nearly made me lose control of my bladder. Must see them in concert once more.

Not Enough Time

You know you need to better budget your time, when you find yourself buying clothes to wear rather than taking a few hours to wash your laundry.

Building Cred is Oh-So-Important in this 'Hood


While watching Michele's soccer game in McCarren Park today, we overheard a woman say, "This guy peed on my building, and I'm like thank god."*

*A friend disputes the accuracy of this quote -- she thinks that woman said, "This guy peed on my clothing." Is that a good thing?

I'm Back, Still Staring

Woah, I sure posted quite a few quotes while I was in San Francisco last week. Coreen's magical phone with wireless internet access made that possible. Having played with it for a week, I know that I MUST get myself an iPhone or similarly expensive tricked-out cell phone with internet access capabilities. Let's see if I can wait until April when my cell phone contract expires.

Remember my staring problem? Well, I had it at SFO and JFK during my trip and geeked out a bit when I spotted Jacques P├ępin sitting a row ahead of me on my Jet Blue flight to San Francisco. Chowhounds and food geeks will know why I gawked a bit. Ok, I didn't have the balls to approach him since I was afraid of frightening him with my enthusiastic babbling about how much my dad and I are fans, have his cookbooks, watch his show.

While waiting for my taxi back to Brooklyn, I stared sleepy-eyed at other luggage-ladden passengers also waiting for their rides and spotted that actor from Windtalkers. Not a fan, so I just continued staring at other passengers.

Now experiencing vacation withdrawal.
