I’m typing this from my phone, because we don’t have internet hooked up yet, and typing long messages on this thing sucks, so I’m going to keep this short.
I hired movers. Watching them load the truck, I have never felt so good about being so lazy. Worth every penny.
We apparently moved to New York in the middle of goddamned weather-pocalypse. Pouring rain almost put me into the guardrail a dozen times on the way up until it lt up, it started pouring again as soon as I started to unload my car, and last night sixty mile an hour winds and massive rain tore through.
We’re about 90% upacked, and so we took this afternoon to screw around in our new home. One of the things I don’t think I’ll ever get used to is that it’s utterly possible here to get bored and be a short train ride from the center of everything. Broadway shows, museums, a thousand awesome bars, all right there. I think I’m going to like it here.
Today we went an exhibit on Jack Kerouac at the library, where they had the first 60 feet of the 120 foot scroll he wrote On The Road on, then ate a bunchof awesome barbeque at a place called Hill Country. We also saw Be Kind Rewind, which I enjoyed. You can tell it was Michel Gondry’s movie, because it’s kind of wierd, but not the bad wierd, and I love Mos Def. Full review likely coming when I have a real keyboard on which to type.
This has taken like an hour to type, and my thumbs are starting to hurt.
