snow day!

Just the right amount of snow; it’s pretty all around and work fed us pizza for lunch and sent us home at 2PM. Woo!

in memoriam: j.d. salinger

It was pretty phoney of us, if you really want to know what I think.

Zoë and Patrick

The Pond at Central Park

The Carousel

Salinger Residence, West 111th St.

I found a copy of Catcher lying around and started reading it again a few days ago. It’s only the second time I’ve read it (the first being the obligatory high school read) and, maybe happily, I feel about the same about it. Except I forgot how hilarious it is!

What a school. You were always watching somebody cut their damn toenails or squeeze their pimples or something.

Old Marty was like dragging the Statue of Liberty around the floor. [About dancing with one of the three "grools" from Seattle.]

The cab I had was a real old one that smellled like someone’d tossed his cookies in it.

His name was Commander Blop or something. He was one of those guys that think they’re being a pansy if they don’t break around forty of your fingers when they shake hands with you.

I figured if she was a prostitute and all, I could get in some practice on her, in case I ever got married or anything.

On bad movies: All I can say is, don’t see it if you don’t want to puke all over yourself.

It took me about an hour to just get her goddamn brassiere off. By the time I did get it off, she was about ready to spit in my eye.

Too good.

the other home

Happily, I was back in San Francisco for the holidays. I didn’t realize I basically just took pictures of food. However, I promise this isn’t turning into a photo blog! Just busy as usual, but hoping to get to do some actual posts soon.

Ocean Beach

Getting supplies for Christmas Dinner hot pot. Clement Street markets never fail.

Alligator hot pot, eh? eh? I’d have done it…

(see also: me trying balut in Manila)

Unfortunately I had to spend a huge amount of time working on grad apps. Which pretty much looked like this for 72 hours.

Taqueria El Toro

Taqueria El Farolito

Bernal Heights Park

No trip complete without a stop at Naan N Curry. Or Cyurry.

And finally, a burrito from Chino’s Taqueria.

Ouf. Back in Brooklyn. No burritos, no taconomics, no justice, no peace.

satori in paris

I know. It’s been forever. Excuse my lapse; I’m (still) in the thick of grad school apps, but after a very nice Thanksgiving I made some time to go through photos from my trip to France. Here are Paris photos with more to come…

Triumph Bonnie (one day…)

Citroën DS! One of my favorite cars, ever.

Especially charming with the Parisian plates (“75″).

Dinner with HBHs.

Au Rocher de Cancale.
