ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

back in belmont!

complete with coconut bread from Kensington Market, nettles and raspberry leaves for Meredith, plans for the evening, and a new roommate all hooked up, from Denmark!

The busride back was uneventful. I sat next to an Israeli man who was doing business with Lockheed Martin in Syracuse. I didn't ask him much about his business, as it was 2 am. He did ask me whether I read Feuerbach and Schopenhauer along with Hegel. I kind of grunted. Sleepy post-Customs. The customs man gave me the usual snarky look & raised eyebrow when I said I studied philosophy. Luckily he didn't want to inspect the nettles.

Thanks everyone who made time to come out and see me in Toronto! and sorry I didn't make it to Ottawa. I'm a horrible person.

ethical question of the day

Is it nosy, prying, or sneaky to google friends and acquaintances? and then, if you find things out about them (say, geeky websites they maintained in high school, or that sort of thing), can you bring it up without being embarrassed or ashamed that you googled them in the first place?

To show that I'm vulnerable to this too: google "jane a. dryden" and look about four entries down... yup, I called myself the Noyster at one point. Long story. (well, not even that long. just not really that funny, almost ten years later). ah yes, and the dragons-inn. oh the fun.
