Doesn’t matter where I’m from, but rather, where you’re from....– Skinny man in sunglasses and a top hat to a random guy smoking outside a bar.
City Map of Bathrooms →
This is just plain handy. I’m going to bookmark it and try it when I’m out later. Especially if you’re with people that always have to go, try this out. Apparently, there are more bathrooms out there then you might think.
Swanky NYC Benefit for Awesome Nonprofit
Hope you might be interested in coming to this great event for LIFT. I worked with LIFT for 4 years in Boston and have continued to be involved with the organization because I care about combatting poverty, providing effective and free services to folks in need in our communities, and using the rich skill set of college students to better our world. I believe in LIFT’s model, and I would...
Foursquare - Week 1 in review
Forgot to check in a lot of places…but maybe that’s fine? Should you check in where you do volunteer work, like the work is just part of a game? I thought volunteer work is selfless? Would it make me a bad person? No really, I just forgot. But I didn’t check in multiple times a day at the office, or at the place where I picked up a bagel but didn’t stay, or at the pretty...

Foursquare - a one month adventure
Beginning tomorrow, i will begin a one month foursquare adventure. If I like it, maybe I’ll stay; if not, I’ll quit and never do it again. Motivation: I made fun of Twitter for being just plain silly, said I’d try it if ever I had a weird urge to tweet twice in one day, had that urge and tried it, love it and haven’t looked back. Parallel here - I wanted to check in at...
welivewithyou: season two, episode one: many trials we try out a bunch of stuff. and this is the best episode ever. no kidding. this is season 2 of my video podcast with bff/roommate steve spillman. It’s pretty great, actually.
I got your voicemail. It sounded like a burp. Was that you? Was that...– My friend in a voicemail to me. I have no idea what she was talking about, but if it was me, I’d have been much more intentionally or unintentionally funny than that.
Alabama is a weird place.
There are some strange tax laws out there (yes, I google these things, try it sometime). Folks living in Alabama should buy their playing cards somewhere else. According to their state tax code (40-12-144): …every person, firm, corporation, club or association within the State of Alabama which sells or stores or uses or otherwise consumes packages of playing cards containing not more than...
New element! →
Yesterday, scientists officially added Copernicium (Cu) as element 112 to the periodic table. But thts old news; they were just feuding over who discovered it in 1996. Logistical stuff. EXCITING though is the synthesizing of unnamed super element 117. It has cool radioactive decay properties. And who knows when it will get a name.
Tonight's sky, wherever you are. →
This is a cool website that lets you put your zip code in and see what stars are right above you. Sometimes I miss the stars in the city, but you can still see them on a clear night from a roof or something. I like the idea of that. the sky in 10009, looking south:

Ideas for lists I'd like to make. Is that my...
Want to see any of these lists? Or have a better idea? I might enjoy writing them. They’d have varying levels of sincerity and humor. You’d enjoy them. Money-back guarantee. Appliances I’d be friends with… if I were a wedge of cheese (this one i’ll do; I like cheese) Great things starting with H Best board games ever Worst times to take Advil Favorite office...
Floating skyscrapers? →
This is crazy. How would people get there? Would you have to know how to swim? Will already sunk businesses move in? (har har har) Could they be called Reef Pushers or something other than skyscrapers, because they’re not?Will tours go to the top or bottom of them? Will people stop eating fish? Will the underwater ecosystem be terribly disturbed? Oy this sounds like a headache, but gosh I...
Yea well October baby OCTOBER!– Yankees fans right now, or farmers excited for their brussels sprouts to come. Unclear.
A poemsentence about today!
stevespillman: WATER, WATER, EVERYWHERE (no, like seriously everywhere. the floods everywhere. that possible leak in the ceiling. the thin sheen on every elevator’s floor) BUT NOT A DROP TO DRINK (because the management company behind my appy just shut off water to the entire building, adding insult to the injury of not having had gas for 3 months running and thus no use of the stove and oven.)
Ideas for things I'll never do, but sort of want...
Invent a board game. Bonus if it’s successful. Write a blog solely consisting of a problem of the day. Like no milk left in the fridge. dumb stuff that’s really irksome that’s a huuuuuge problem; right? Explain the Alternative Minimum Tax in 2 sentences. Start a business where I’m a life coach meets teacher meets drill sergeant. Bonus if I have more than 5 clients. ...
