    speaking of housing prices, there was an ad in the NY section of today's WSJ highlighting an overside 1-bedroom (1,100 square feet) in the "Manhattan House" at 66th and Lex.

    Yeah, it's tolerable because of its a reprieve from that weather, but mid-40's to high-50's temperature range is so inconvenient. I don't think I could make it a single day going about life in San Francisco without either a sweat or a chill at some point. I'm already sensitive enough to temperature that I have to speculate whether I'm actually a middle-aged woman.

    So open that everything you put in one end falls out the other side.

    went for a small walk to grab lunch and passed three different situtations where construction workers set up welding stations right on the sidewalk. What's the deal with this? There's sparks and shit flying everywhere, and sure, I know not to stare at that bright UV light, but there's a lot of schools and kids in the neighborhood and that's dangerous.

    Sometimes, one of them just stands in front of the sparks with his back turned to it - that should protect the children, right...?

    i actually made them for my father in law. He's crazy about pickles, and I used a basic brine and then each one has a different hot pepper, and each one tastes different.


    it's his 30th anniversary gift from me. sounds lame on the surface, but they'll be gone in a week.

    Did you go upstate yourself to source the ingredients directly from the farms or did you wimp out and get them from the Park Slope farmer's market?

    Friend was arrested on weapons charges for having a rigging knife (folding knife with marlin spike used for sailing).

    Complete bullshit.

    No. It was in his pocket. What is your point?

    I still don't understand your questioning. It is a tool of a trade.

    I'll guess the SF concensus is he shouldn't have had it on because he wasn't actively sailing at the time of his arrest, and therefore, he is fully deserving of the charge he is now facing.

    It is a major haste for him, and it looks like it is going to be expensive, I feel for the kid. He is a smart kid, and is now probably goi ng to have to forego training this summer to deal with this bullshit.

    I don't even know why the fuck I hop on this forum at all anymore.
