The Big Four-O

It’s in the teens here in Manhattan. Supposedly there’s a big Noreaster heading our way. twelve to 18 inches of snow expected. Im having a freaken great time here on my birthday.

The city looks so diferent from what I remember it to be the last time I came.

Right now Im sitting at an Internet Cafe somewhere in the Village. It’s snowing big time outside.

Got lots of stories to tell when I get back. Even the encounter with the owner of a tshirt place selling Castro tshirts.

Anyway, Happy fortieth to me and thanks to all of you that came by and wished me Felicidades.

It’s time for booze.

  1. Herman: I wish I were there with you because NY is home, but my doctor won’t even let me drive until next week. (Go to my blog to see why). My 50th is in a couple of weeks, and we could have celebrated two milestones. Anyway, happy birthday, enjoy New York and holler when you get back.

  2. Hey I think I know where that Internet cafe is! There’s only one in the Village! I like that place – it’s all dark and blue, and it’s got an old Vietnamese guy at the counter – very hip!

    I used to go to that cafe for the express purpose of signing on to Mapquest to locate particular Village bars in order to meet my buddies. Otherwise I couldn’t find them in the Village’s twisting streets. At least that is what I used it for.

    Glad you’ve checked in Val, from some place I think I know! And are enjoying the best part of New York on a day like that!

    Welcome to “ol’ far'” territory.

    By the way, you are in perfect “skitching” season in NYC. Just watch out for the manhole covers.

    (skitching: grab a cab by the back bumper and let it pull you all over Manhattan–Steve and I perfected the technique. Manhole covers are dangerous because, heated from below, they are the only point of traction on the street.)
