King of the world

My boyfriend and I were comparing our kingdoms the other day.

You know, what we are ‘king of’ — our unique talents, our little quirks.

For example, he is the king of the non-sequitor. His rapid change of topic can give you whiplash.

He also will often preface even the most simple answer with a complex disclaimer. (He worked in advertising, so he gets it honest.)

When I asked him what quirks of mine he had noticed, he landed on, “You walk fast.”

He’s 6’2″. I’m 5’7″. And he thinks I have a fast stride.

Feeling pretty proud about that.

One man’s nap ..

The New York City Marathon is being run today…

…and broadcast for five hours on ABC7.

And people make fun of me for watching golf on television.

Deja vu

This couch is sitting in the trash outside my building.

It looks just like the couch I bought for my very first apartment way back in…well, no need getting distracted by dates.

One thing is for sure — it’s timeless.

Ugly then, ugly now.

You aren’t clutzy…

Poor Jimmy Fallon.

He fell yet again in Massachusetts, hurting his right hand. This is the same year he hurt his left hand so badly, he spent a week in ICU, and chipped a tooth trying to open a tube of lotion for said hand.

What a clutz…or maybe not?

You may recall I got bit by a stingray on my family’s beach vacation in Florida.  There were 10 of us; I got the chomp.

Now it appears a spider bit my right arm sometime over the past two days,  and I have a swollen lump of itchiness near my elbow.

We, Jimmy, are the chosen.

I will let you know if I figure out how to get off the list.

Core values

There was an ad in the subway today for the latest exhibit at the Museum of Sex, entitled Hard Core: A Century and a Half of Obscene Imagery.

It’s not that difficult for me to imagine  that such pictures exist,  especially at this particular venue.  But for the museum itself to use the word obscene to describe the art it displays seems like an argument against its own credibility.

Then again, you do have to pay to get in…

So I guess the marketing  department knows what they are doing.

Freeze frame

Oh boy — individual TVs on my flight to ATL!

And mine is so friendly — it has been welcoming me for almost 45 minutes.

Can you say busted?

Sigh.
