1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I studied some more, two exams tomorrow (actually its 12:25, so one today and one tomorrow), I saw some bird shit on my car, took it off only to see it left a wonderful stain [​IMG] [​IMG] :

    So, I spent a few hours browsing the web trying to figure the best way to remove the damage and how to make it look like new. That, btw is what Florida's sun does to everything: ages it faster.

    Watched North by Northwest, which I thought was good but not as amazing as most build it up to be.

    Walking around yesterday in Manhattan I walked by this place. Nice neon job, guys. The sign is supposed to say "La Vigna", when it actually looks like....

    Hmm...I ate at the Vagina last night...yeah, that doesn't sound too appetizing.

    Well, its hit and miss really, too may factors involved, including if you like some angel hair with your meal or not.

    Spent the first part of the day arguing with maitre'des(sic?), running around from work to buy cards, flowers, etc.
    Then took the girlfriend to Mamma Maria, a restaurant in the North End of Boston, snagged a private candle-lit dining room, celebrated the 4th anniversary in fine style, then took her back to the (dorm) room which I had cleverly covered in 36 burning candles.
    'Twas a success, especially for someone as thoroughly disorganized as I.
    Also got pimp my new-from-Ebay Hugo Boss suit. I know it's not the favored brand here but it fit me like a dream straight out of the box and only cost me about $85.

    Sat. a.m.: school music festival for the Gifted Child.

    afternoon: First nice day of spring here in Poland, so I grabbed a couple union-made Miller Lites and made for the hammock in my back yard.

    Grabbed the headphones, but which CD to listen to? After a great deal of deliberation, I take La Traviata with Anna Moffo and Richard Tucker. Everything is perfect: first sunshine of the year, no work to do, great music, especially Moffo. Later, I log onto the New York Times and find that she died the day before. Freaky.
    Link to cd: http://paumako.com/a/asin.php?ASIN=B000003GAXte

    Sunday: Neiman Last Call, Saks Off-5th, Marshalls with my Gifted Child.
    Score: Burberry blue-check dress shirt ($165 marked down to $39). Coach deerskin gloves w/ removeable cashmere lining ($168 for $16), and all the winter Pantherellas they had (nine) for $2 each.

    Throughout the weekend I prepped for my first NYC visit by beginning a Woody Allen review: Melinda Melinda (terrible), Manhattan (great), Crimes and Misdemeanors (really great).

    I had a very nice saturday - went to a bible class at synagogue in the morning (after 20 years of being a practicing agnostic, I have become a practicing non-believing reform jew, but I happen to have a good enough education in judeism so that I am one of the people joint -teaching an adult bible class at my synagogue) gives me something to think about. rushed to the dojo for a semi private class - one of the classes I go to is at 11:30 on saturday, so it is usually just me and the 2 instructors, maybe one other guy, which makes it a great class, brought my son because I want him to understand that sometimes you can hit people, and sometimes you can't and to understand when each is applicable.
    took my son to the park, a 5 minute walk from my house, on the hudson river, met 3 of this school friends. played in the playground, then blew up balloons with a pump and let them fly and had the 4 kids chase them, then made monster bubbles, and then few a loaf of aold bread to the ducks and seagulls (a good father comes prepared).

    finished the evening with a dinner party at friends' house, with 3 other couples who are a little older than my other friends, and who don't have little kids. it was a very nice evening of conversation and reasonably good food.

    all in all, a great day.

    I looked at a videofilm from the wilderness in Yucon Territories, Canada. Nice and exciting, I loved it.

    I'll give you my extended weekend because the week so far has been meetings, class, and essay writing...

    Arrived in NYC early Thursday morning from Toronto. Sat next to a beautiful woman on the plane, we made plans for dinner that night. Visited MoMA, was blown away. Had dinner in SoHo with said beautiful woman, unfortunately not much spark, left it at that. Watched "Walk the Line," parents arrived late that night. The rest of the weekend was a blur. Had breakfast at Norma's (highly recommend) and walked through Central Park, window shopped on 5th. Saw "The Odd Couple" with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broadrick (pretty good). Breakfast at Stages Deli (great sandwich, not a good way to start a day). Down to SoHo, Canal, etc. for shopping and sight-seeing (walked across the Brooklyn St. Bridge as sun set, highly recommend). Ate at Joe's Ginger in Chinatown (amazing). Saw "Bodies" at South Street Seaport (absolutly fantastic). Last day went up to Harlem, very cool. Was able to sneek into Apollo theatre and then had fried chicken at G&R Soul Food on 125th (amazing). Got to LaGuardia early to find out flight was canceled and bumped to earlier flight. That flight was the only one to leave that night for TO. There was a 300 person waiting list, feel very lucky. Got home and collapsed...

    nothing as cool as Aaron did....i love NYC. Sooo...how did I roll last night....the same friend who had the 'house cooling' party last Saturday night called a few of us around to help her drink some of the left over alcohol. Only about 10 of us there I guess. She had four bottles of Johnny Walker Gold Label leftover (gift from the marketing manager), so drank a couple on the rocks, ate some weird little attempted-bruschetta things she had made, and was home and tucked in bed by 10. Pretty quiet night, but hey, it was Wednesday [​IMG]
