Monday Is Cat Week: 3 Speed

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/2504659773/

Not unlike an old bike, my cat has exactly three speeds:
1. Begging for food whenever I walk into the kitchen.
2. Hopping on the table and trying to eat whatever I happen to be eating.
3. Looking all cute and whatnot when sleeping.

For Folding

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/2481820238/

The only thing better than being on a bike today is being on a folding bike. And the only thing better than that is being on a folding bike at the Time’s Up Folding Bike Ride & Festival.

So what are you waiting for?

This Is Not An Improvement

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/2480167911/

This is not an improvement over the previous facade.

This looks like a cheap PC case.

This looks like a refrigeration unit.

This looks like a Bose Acoustic Wave.

This is a facade that won’t grow on anyone, gay or straight.

This is an improvement that won’t be missed by anyone when it gets its own improvement twenty years from now.

Beyond Street Meat

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpchan/2462120168/

Like many others, I enjoy the halal cart at 53 St & 6 Av, even though I usually avoid street food I and I generally refuse to wait more than 10 minutes in line at any New York eatery. But the food here is pretty tasty, and the line is actually part of the experience.

But at visit last week, I didn’t get red sauce, and this time they didn’t give me red sauce or their famous white sauce. No white sauce?! This is practically grounds for a civil suit in New York, though to be fair I was in a rush…and so were they.

Want to be an officially sanctioned subway musician? You’ve just missed this year’s auditions, but there’s plenty of time to get ready for next year.
