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.

sorry for not posting in a long time

busy, stressed, poor, mopey, worried, etc., etc., etc. Nothing really much to report. Nashville was good, the Country Music Hall of Fame was awesome, a cute boy was very cute and actually seemed to like me but of course had a girlfriend, and recently I've discovered that all my male friends that I have vague crushes on ALL, without exception, have crushes on my other friends. A little frustrating. Really. Oh well. That's how it goes.

And Paul, ages ago, gave me permission to share the following:

thought you'd enjoy this.

so Kate and I are sitting playing cards in tequila bookworm last night. I
look up at the people who are sitting down next to us, and I do a double
take when I realise it's avi lewis. I am actually rather annoyed at the
double take. I work with his uncle for chrissakes.
anyhoo, he was getting to know his new producer, from the sound of it, and
she was still rather intimidated by his presence, apologising for her
cellphone ringing, etc. it was all very amusing.

so eventually they get up and leave, and their places are immediately
taken by gad horowitz and s--- b---. you know gad and s---, right?
so, she's working away on her ibook and keeps asking gad all these
questions about word usage, and showing him the text on the screen for his
ok. I began to realise, to my horror, that we was sitting there writing
reference letters. the question of the night, sigh, was her asking "so
Gad, if I have 30 grad students per year for 10 years, that's 300
students, right?"

(And Paul, you needn't worry about my blog being googled -- it doesn't show up; nothing really links to it, so the google spiders don't see it. huzzah!)
