My dad is 6 foot and 233 pounds (I know because we're doing a weightloss challenge!) and is absolutely thinner than Trump.
Hell, my 5'11 boyfriend was 240 pounds a few years ago and was no where near the size of Trump. No where NEAR.
Went to Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square with my wife (on holiday from NZ), she ordered a rum and coke and it was undrinkable. The barman said it was the first time anyone ever asked for more coke.
Well your first mistake was going to the hard Rock Cafe in times Square!
Meaning no one that lives there does it. Happy days to you bitch.
Don't listen to them. They probably have this weird characature of how a new yorker acts and they're doing their best to emulate it. Tip the counter if you feel like it. Or don't. Tipping is generally only expected for table service.
I've seen some shit, but I think the time a homeless man who was completely covered in yogurt head to toe and still squeezing it into his mouth from the container came up to me and started hitting on me takes the cake.
God, SUM 41 was my shit in Middle School, circa '01. Loved them.
I'm 28 now, and this brings me way back. I miss not having to worry about shit.
It comes out when I'm mad. My dads is a pretty strong accent. I never noticed it because I grew up with it, but my boyfriend, who is from Texas, once said "Your dad actually says" fuhgettaboutit". That's awesome!". He also saying things like "Yuge". He's from Marble Hill.
My accent is to a much lesser degree.
...what do you think I'm doing? I don't have 10 grand laying around to set up shop so I need a job before I move. Again, you don't know what you are talking about. Normal people job hunt before they switch cities.
Don't listen to him. He talks like a characature of a new yorker.
The apartments straddling the hills, the stairway sidewalks, and lush greenery remind me of Hong Kong or SF or something. 10-15 visits to NY before I moved here, and I never knew there was anything special that far uptown until my girlfriend took me to a concert at the Lutheran Church on Bennett Ave. a few months ago.
That Lutheran church is really cute. I'm not a religious person, but like can see that church from my window and I like their garden.
Fort Tryon is really beautiful. I'm moving away from the area soon to be closer to work downtown and I'm going to miss it.
Live on 72nd and work on 34th - take the 123. Door to door is about 15 minutes; rarely delays during the workweek. When the weather is nice it's a 40 minute walk home.
I also work on 34th, and am moving to the UWS in a few months mainly to cut down on my commute. How do you like living in the area?
UWS is great. It's not very wide some there's always an option between 1, 2, 3 and B, C. Tons of places to eat: La Mirabelle was one of my favorite spots. Close to Central Park and Riverside Park if you like walking or running. And, most importantly, Levain Bakery.
Levain bakery is my fave. How would you say the noise in the area is? We live on broadway up in the 180s and the sirens drive me batshit. I can handle noise, and I know that the city isn't going to be quiet, but damn.
That's me with Texas. I'm from Austin so all we do is make fun of the rest of Texas for being backwards as all hell. Until someone from the midwest starts talkin shit about Texas... Then Texas is the greatest god damn state in this nation and yall lucky we aint seceded yet.
This is me with New York. I regularly complain about the transit, how fucking cold and dirty it is, and how crowded it can be, but if people from the south or midwest who have been to times square once complain about it, my pupils dilate and I rant about how this is the only 24/7 transit system in the world and THAT'S WHY IT'S DIRTY YOUR STATE IS SUBSIDIZED BY MINE THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
GO SOMEWHERE BESIDES TIMES SQUARE. BRANCH OUT AND EAT AT SOMEPLACE BESIDES APPLEBEES, CAROL.
I was writing an email to a very important client at work.
After writing and sending the email, I noticed I ended it by writing:
Thank god for email recall.
Love this. Spunk aside, your grandmom has such classic old person penmanship.
I work in I.T. and my technophobe dad will clip articles out of the Tech section of the paper for me. “Here you go, I found a list of the top ten antiviruswares for you.”
I like her single lower case "g" in a sea of uppercase letters.
