Sometimes I don't know what the fuck y'all are talking about and I'm cool with that.

it was a candid photo taken between more posed photos and it looked like she was flashing a hand with a ring on it. Apparently some people don't know the engagement ring goes on the ring finger.

Paul, I misread your post before. I hope we are not accidentally engaged.

No, we were at a wedding as guests. It was a super fancy one. Holy cow

Apparently we have posted a couple-photo that looked to many acquaintances like an engagement photo. A hand was posed in a certain way. Yikes.

I bought these really delicious rolls with onion on top. But they had big pockets of raw onion inside??

Delicious but weird burps and bad dreams all week. No more onion rolls.

Someone who wants to spend a lot less money on mediocre deli sandwiches that cost like $12

I finally did the thing you're supposed to do (cooked a bunch of food on a sunday to eat for lunches all week) and it turns out 5 days of the same lunch is too many for me to really enjoy. I need to alternate, 3 days of the big dish and 2 days of sandwiches or something.

But it was still pretty damn good. Roast chicken thighs with a peruvian-ish marinade (basically lots of paprika, vinegar, salt, garlic, cumin), red beans, white rice, plantains.

The apartment searched has been called off. We finally found a pretty-good place and it made me realize... what am I doing. Why do I want to move to a new place that's the same size if not smaller, further from my GF, and further from work? No thanks.

I think it comes in waves. A lot of the brownstones in now-fancy Brooklyn neighborhoods (Park Slope, even Brooklyn Heights!) were built as single family homes, then were divided up into rooming houses, and then were bought by yuppies to turn back into single family homes. Maybe in 20 years all of those new fake walls will be knocked down and Crown Heights will become all big bedrooms and even more unaffordable.

We are looking at apartments in a different neighborhood and they are a lot better. Apparently people in my current hood are buying buildings and cutting all the bedrooms in half, or something. Also, replacing the appliances with really ugly "hip" ones, installing ugly "hip" light fixtures, etc. Very bad.

(For the Wombats in the room, venturing into the area east of Prospect Park along the Q train)

In my personal use Iíve found the only thing worse than an Apple product is anything with windows on it. Although Iíve heard lately Apple is frustrating after a brief golden age.

Oh the other crushing thing yesterday was that one of the apartments we looked at was in a cute historic brownstone like Iíve wanted to live in for years. It was dirty, tiny, overpriced, with a horrible layout. I feel a little... crushed.

He is now married with a cute baby!

Today we looked at apartments and every one of them was awful. Everything in our price range is 1/2 mile further from the subway and has even tinier bedrooms. Bad. Bad bad bad.

I considered whether I could pay another $200 a month in rent. And then I realized that's like throwing 2 macbooks in the trash every year. In addition to the ~11 I already throw in the trash every year / buy for my landlord every year.

Yes, he lives near me! I ran into him canvassing for a city council candidate. But only realized recently that he is Bozack, at the time I thought he was just a nice guy from twitter.

Oh god don't bring this up, today I told a socialist about the Bozack connection and he made the worst most ham-handed achewood references to prove he knew what achewood is.

Even after the revolution we will still have the guys who corner you in bars and talk at you for 25 minutes while you stare stoically into the distance.

Did not get elected to go as a representative to the NYC convention of my socialist group. Which means I finished in the bottom 10 out of 60 candidates (we are the biggest branch so we get to send 50 people).

Does not feel great. But whateva my GF is moving into an apartment 2 blocks away this weekend.

edit: aw. My lovely friend is organizing the whole convention and after telling me it's an outrage I wasn't elected, asked if I would help set up and sell t-shirts and stuff. I am very aware I am being used for willing volunteer labor, but she is also someone who puts in tons of behind the scenes work, and I know that her asking me this means she thinks she can count on me. Good.

Wild one: met a guy from one of our Borough offices and he knows my girlfriend AND a former poster of ours from when they all lived in a small town in Alaska.
