    I saw a pigeon eating a pile of vomit on the street this morning. Thursday night is the new Friday.

    I think we could have a thread on just Foo and pB sightings alone.

    Now that :foo: is hangin' 'n bangin' down FiDi-way I am very hopeful for a sighting (saw uppr-crust last month :slayer:), and from his comments and hairproducts shopping habits a home nabe encounter w/ pB is a distinct possibility - I am truly blessed! :satisfied:

    How did you reckon it was me? By the way, yesterday was a horrible hair day for me.


    Sometimes when I am out and I see somebody like eyeing me I think, oh shit, which one of the members is this, now...


    We could also just make it happen. Like I said, I am pretty sure I know your exact building based on your shopping habits, and description of your building over time.

    Can't wait to complain about that coffee in the coffee thread, too. :slayer: Espresso at Aldea was surprisingly good.

    Beautiful day today. Went to the nicer coffee shop further away just to enjoy the walk.

    Walked by the stock exchange. There are always tons of tourists, which is expected. However, I can never tell what they are attempting to photograph. I saw a Japanese couple pull aside a random black guy wearing a Yankees cap. I thought they wanted him to help them take a photo of themselves. No. They wanted him to be in the photo. The woman posed with him, pointing at him with one hand and making the weird Asian sideways peace sign with the other, while her boyfriend/husband took the picture with his iPad.

    Now that's just funny.

    Working right by the exchange can be a pain in the ass with all the tourists and security.

    Had the goat cheese chocolate truffle at Fika. Ridiculously good.
