    i should be more clear, I have no problem touching the poles either, but I like the creature comfort of gloves.

    I don't get sick too often, luckily, but when I first moved to New York, I was sick that whole first winter. Took me a while to realize it was probably the subway/general close quarters to gazillions of people. Started washing my hands pretty frequently after that. Not sure if it was a fluke, the hand-washing did the trick, or if my immune system just got stronger, but I haven't had another winter like that one since.

    I changed my address online last year, but don't think that you actually need to get the card changed:

    i don't think it's necessary either, but nobody related to me lived at the address that was on my license.

    Regarding the address change for DMV, when i first got my license, i had my apartment as the address and when i received it i realized it was probably better to have my parents' permanent address as the address so i changed it online and i think it said they would mail me a new card in a couple of weeks. A month and a half go by, no new license so i call the DMV, someone told me that there was a fee for a new card but that as long as the online system had the correct one, it was fine. I declined paying the fee for a new license. A month after that, i got a license in the mail with my parent's address even though i didn't pay anything or had anymore contact with DMV after that phone call

    I have been putting this off for years. Some time long, long ago I lost my Social Security card — which I need in order to switch my license from my last state of residence to a New York license. However, getting a new Social Security card requires that I go to a Social Security office, since they won't accept photocopies of my current license/passport in order to process my application for a replacement by mail.

    Ugh.

    Seems kind of strange to me that you don't need to get a new card.

    my facebook news feed is still being shitted up with marathon people, but now they're just blowing each other over "such an amazing accomplishment". christ, will it ever stop???

    wife was in Whole Foods yesterday and apparently a bunch of blow hards were still wearing their marathon medals.

    I don't really understand the whole marathon thing. Why are they lifted up as being so "heroic". I mean, it is not like they saved a bunch of children from a burning school bus, or donated their lives to helping others. I mean, who gives a shit? People run a lot all the time at gyms across the whole city. What am I missing?

    Come to think of it I was on the subway at 11:30pm last night and a guy was wearing the cape thing. I wanted to push him onto the tracks.
