    it can't be a coincidence that weather reporters almost never mention the humidity. Which is really the only thing that matters. It's like they are just doing PR for NY. "If we mention it, people will realize that NY sucks!"

    Well, it happened. Welcome to dealing with JFK and LaGuardia (which I am convinced is the CDC-approved human equivalent of Plum Island)

    I always figured the humidity was implied with NY weather. Mentioning it every day seems like an exercise in futility.

    Yeah, you always have to look at the dew point. If the dew point is over 65 it gets really sticky.

    Humidity is weird. I was reading about it recently, specifically why it is always "relative". Relative to what? Well, relative to the kinetic energy in the air (temperature). This is why at night the humidity rises. The temperature drops, so there is less kinetic energy so the humidity proportion is higher. Very strange stuff.

    Ny in the summer is like Clifford The Big Red Dog following you around, panting hot wet breath down your neck everywhere you go.

    Welp, going to have to have every single thing I wore today dry cleaned due to sweat. Possibly including my shoes.

    I'm home for a wedding and I was driving today for the first time in six months and the road got blocked because some stupid geese were waddling across the road. This used to really piss me off, but after dealing with broken trains and other inconveniences to commutes on the MTA, I couldn't have been happier to get slowed down by something other than stupid geese. Then I drove to my destination in about 30 minutes, and it felt like five minutes. It's amazing how much the MTA lowers your expectations of pleasant commuting and raises the bar on misery you'll tolerate before jumping in front of a train.

    I checked into a hotel in LA a couple of nights ago and was informed that I was there on swing dancing night. The cute girl at the registration desk took in my suit and asked "Do you swing?"

    I cracked up and said I didn't realize it was that kind of hotel. Got a big smile and a laugh from her and we joked about how it was a 'full service hotel'.

    I had a lobster roll from the Red Hook place. I really didn't understand the appeal of it, especially for $16. It seems like one of those contradictions where you take a fine ingredient and dumb it down with bread and garnishes for the sake of economy until the fine ingredient gets lost anyway. Outside of rare special occasions, eating those things seems like a waste.

    IMO, no. I think you're more well served spending that money on a sandwich at Porchetta. Maybe I've just never had the right lobster roll. I may have only had from Luke's so far though.

    Lobster rolls suck IMO. Just go with the classic fish and chips.
