The streets of Brooklyn provide.


On the street Monday night:


Solid-wood dresser covered in golden cloth featuring Mt. Fuji!! Too heavy for me to attempt and Greg wasn't having it (exhausted from moving dirt around on Randall's Island), so I didn't investigate further. It really seemed like a nice old thing though.

I decided I didn't need this oil painting:

Due to it is hideous.

I really liked this super-old photograph (who are those guys?) but the glass was broken, so I decided to leave it.

This, on the other hand:

Now lives at my house!

I call it "Windswept."

This guy

Awesome head of wavy bright-gray hair. Don't you want to pet it?

I'd like to know

What the thinking was around this particular decision.

Last page

Of a book published in 1995.

Yes, the networks are indeed the medium of the future.


On Randall's Island.

Lacrosse ball!

NCAA rules spec, of course.

Wow backpack kitty!

Two roses and another daisy!

"Pleased and proud" are the only words to describe him today.

At the staff sale at work:

The kindliest, most sweet-faced disembodied one-dollar goat head in existence. Right now he is perched on top of my computer monitor, gazing at me with loving kindness.

Just waiting for the moment when I need to MEASURE SOMETHING.

Yes folks—my new friend is also a tape measure.

Now do you understand why staff-sale day is the best day of the entire year??

Tuna melt in a bag

It's what's for lunch.

The saddest thing EVER

That's its FACE!

It's Sunday

Just wear . . . what have you.

Rainy Saturday errands

So much more fun to do them in a pickup truck with Greg!

Buy three pounds of coffee at the coffee store. And why not get two espressos while you're at it?

Hmmm. With Long Boys?


Caramels of course!

Drink it in the car. Best ever.

Garage hex

Get out your magical talismans.

Arrange them "correctly."

Point the unicorn horn at the object in question.

Yep. Hopefully it will fall down in the night so the landlady's husband can no longer watch TV on it without his shirt on.

Home haircut

At the office?

I decided not to be a crazy person. (The scissors here are so nice and sharp tho!)

Soda water

I know that one symbol means Kosher, but I'd really like to know what else it says.

Dog sticks

Pick-up and drop-off area?

Subway gorilla friend

Hi buddy.

Donut shop

Things you make.

Found last night!

In a garbage pile outside a loft building in Williamsburg:

Silkscreened poster from 1972!

WOO! I really like it, and it is very nicely framed. (It's not stained; there's just a little dirt on the glass.)

There was another one—featuring a box of crayons—and I kind of regret I didn't take both.

Backpack kitty says

Thank you for the pretty flower!

(Landlady summer hallway theme.)

This thing is awesome!

I wasn't totally sure it was discarded, or I would have for sure taken it.


Soooo pretty and they smell so good!

If only the same could be said for me.

One of the lesser-known proofreading marks

I found this post-it on my office floor.

"Kitty jail"

My friend sent me these pichures from the vet's office.

They are up for adoption: Underdog (left) and Tom Collins.

A useful chart

I worked it all out for you.

She is three years old. Go Ida!!

Beamed through space.

Touched my leg.

Put the pictures in order.

PS I made a strawberry-rhubarb pie...
