This Week 17/3 NYC


“The only thing in New York people’s fridges is milk, beer and hot sauce. The hot sauce is for the pizza when they’re not eating out.” R.Lewis

“Report: Antismoking Group Has Never Even Tried Cigarettes”

“Anthropologists Trace Human Origins Back To One Large Goat ‘Wait, That Can’t Be Right,’ Scientists Say” The Onion – quickly becoming my favourite new discovery.

“Drink coffee. Do stupid things, faster, with more energy.”

“I love what you’re wearing… thanks I got it on sale, it was only $2000″

Dear Ransom,

Is has been a week since my last confession.

In this time, many things have happened to me. I have walked… a lot! I have experienced a huge amount of packaging and a lot of pizza slices… Crucially, I missed Phil Collins Day just down the road. I do not know how I let this happen.

I need to get this out ‘fo y’all’ (see what I’ve done there) in time today so this will be brief, however rest assured Ms Ryle & I have La Paz vs NYC article to go for next week.

This will involve my usual sardonic nonsense and indeed the far more eloquent Ms Ryle on a comparison of the two cities… sound boring? My side may be… but I will endeavour to make it less so.

In the meantime I will leave you this week with a plethora of nonsense linkage and Mr Shepherd’s guesting.
