    A guy I knew in my neighborhood worked for Bloomberg (company, not man) and gave him (the man) many presentations on his department and such. He was a baller. He moved to San Fran about 4 months ago.

    the more people I meet here and the more events that I attend (most at the urging of my wife), the less I think that the "filthy rich" part is true.

    Disgusting out there, as well.

    For some reason, my office building didn't have enough rugs and stuff out, so the lobby was super slick. I slipped and whacked my knee against the corner of the elevator door. Hurts like hell.

    Of course, when I slipped, my first thought was that I was about to destroy my brand new pents I am wearing for the first time today. Thankfully, I did not.

    Hell of a day to wear brand new pents. Probably a soggy mess now.

    I think it is going to be 8 degrees on your commute home, actually.

    Yeah, in hindsight, not a good call. I was just excited to wear them for the first time.

    between yesterday afternoon and this morning, a ton of snow melted away.


    this means that the subway station floors are covered with brown mess that is super slippery.

    When did broken-down cardboard boxes become the preferred flooring material of anybody outside Nicaragua?

    Drinks weren't special. I don't like the layout. Service was poor. Its weird how no one can interact with a bartender. Higher a machine.

    Attaboy isn't too far.
