what a night

i will never eat at menchanko tei again (131 E 45th St, between 3rd & lex). and i tell ya, i have also never been so motivated to review a restaurant:
the choices were standard japanese noodle shop fare, as the decor, as my expectations. it's a welcomed variety in midtown. BUT I HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MANY ROACHES AT ONCE IN ANY FOOD ESTABLISHMENT (not even in chinatown). in the middle of consuming my noodle, a friend noticed one was on my napkin, inches away from my arm. i shook it off the table, and glanced over to the table to my right, and there was another one on the chair, sitting pretty. the staff reacted quickly enough to our points and silent calls for help by scooping the bugs off the floor and slapping the one on the chair flat. just then my friend pointed out another one crawling up the wall behind my chair, and the staff quickly slapped that one into oblivion as well. THREE ROACHES WITHIN ONE MINUTE FOUND. as you can imagine, we lost our appetites. what an unfortunate dining experience - i will never go back.

i have a crush on wang. marry me!

and damn you pythagoras.
And when you get the prizes, you’re often treated even worse. Men can tolerate a woman in physics as long as she is in a subordinate position, but many cannot tolerate a woman above them.


coming at you at snail speed!!!

perhaps i should just do monthly updates :) it'll look a little something like this (cos baby, i've been workin' too much!):

923 was a special date: a friend got married. another got engaged. i got satellite tv :D

i attempted to throw myself at borat wednesday night. but there were too many younger, fresher, hipper, nyu students on line already.

i saw
sufjan stevens as the magnificent chinese snowbird at town hall friday night. i find myself thinking that i should've tried to see him (as a cheerleader, construction worker, stars and stripes banjo plucker) earlier.
regretfully, i did not get to play with the squeaky blow-up superman (or santa claus), as the lucky folks in the orchestra area did. but i *really* *really* wanted to. exclamation mark.

are you ready? this upcoming friday is another special night. watch the
webisodes now! huzzah!!
