be serious...

Not sure what the context was, but I just overheard this conversation:
Larry: That can't be true.
Nina: It's totally true, Larry, don't goof around.

When we were at the top of the Empire State Building last weekend I saw this building and was entranced by it.  It's right on the edge of Bryant Park and nobody seemed to know what it was.  I resolved to find out but was too tired when we got home.  The next night Larry and I went to see The Sorcerer's Apprentice and...there is was again, one of the characters lives in the very same building.  Now I had to get the story!  It turns out that it's the Radiator Building, also known as the American Standard Building and now The Bryant Park Hotel, I believe.  I would post a link to the hotel website, but it's super loud and flash driven and says absolutely nothing about the history of the building...stupid.  Anyway, it's interesting how little things in life come together like that.

I love them, the two other people I live with don't.  I really love them on pizza, so when I was making pizza tonight Nina asked me if I was putting Olivers on my personal pizza.  It took me a minute to figure out what she meant.


I was woken the other morning by a stark naked little girl with wild child bed head hair.  Said child was jumping on my bed singing "all my ya-yas are coming out" over and over again.  It was so funny that I didn't mind being woken up.

the newest blogger

Nina is composing her very first blog post with her own picture and text as I'm writing this. It's also the first time she's ever used a computer.  You can see her first post here.
