Hello blogosphere. It has been awhile. I am not sure why I haven’t been writing and perhaps there is no good reason. Sure work has been busy.
I was in New York City (technically just Newark, NJ) for a nanosecond for a CCAR meeting.
I got a new wii game (Super Mario Bros., anyone?).
I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my Netflix CD so that I can stream movies to my television.
I have taken a new liking to bubble tea. I’m not sure why it is so satisfying to chew my drink but it is. Don’t worry, eventually I will find this idea repugnant again.
I have read a bunch of good books and I even read last week’s New Yorker before this weeks edition arrived. Don’t worry. I still have the new Vanity Fair and several weeks of The Forward that are piling up.
I bought more k-cups and I’m happy to report they’re working on making them more green.
When I was in New York with the grade 10 students I bought 3 packs of Biblical Bandz (Jewish silly bandz). I have them spread out on the table in my office. I notice that more people are now stopping by my office. Is it because I give away the bandz?
I am completely enthralled by the baseball playoffs. I don’t really have a favorite team. In solidarity with my sister, I could root for the Yankees. I think I will just stick with watching and enjoying the fine baseball. It feels wrong to root solely for the Yankees.
By the way, my sister is going to Los Angeles in a couple of weeks for interviews. Have you thought about hiring her yet? Did you forward her resume? Been in touch?
Enough random musing for now. Cherrio!
okay so i also love bubble tea – ABN makes fun of me but i just love munching the bubbles. i just finished this month’s vanity fair, the one with marilyn on the cover. completely underwhelmed by the entire issue – which sorta throws off my entire month…
What kind of bubble team do you like? I’m partial to the Taro, or some of the fruit ones like Honeydew. That’s what you get exposed to when you work in Richmond Hill.
What does your sister want to do with her life?
Yankees??? UGH. 🙂
I am still trying to figure out my favourite. I enjoy the milk teas. Some of the sweeter teas are too sweet so I ask them to lay off the sugar. I tried red bean and I loved it.
My sister wants a job that will provide her with health insurance (it is the USA) and that she can make lots of money.
The Rangers look mighty good. I am just not really rooting for any team this year.
