Brief Notes On The East Coast

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

My lips seem to chap more easily here.

Do not take the yummy cornbread home from District Chophouse in DC and then warm a small slice of it in a microwave for two minutes. It may catch fire.

The day that you think you will take the subway a bunch of times, and that therefore it makes sense to get the unlimited one-day Fun Pass, will be the day you take the subway exactly once.

I am having fun.
