Deluxe Deal

The Washington Deluxe bus from New York to Washington, D.C. is a complete bargain at $35 roundtrip or $20 one-way as compared to Greyhound's ever-changing fares of $74-85 round trip and $42 one-way NY-DC. You've got to make a reservation (and arrive 15 minutes before boarding or risk losing your seat to a standby) which is a simple toll-free call 1-866-287-6932 or 1-718-387-7523 from New York. Though you lose the flexibility of Greyhound's every half hour or hour schedule, if the time fits, it's definitely worth using. The trip is just as comfortable on a modern tour bus complete with movie on board. The only drawback is that you're dropped off on one of two stops in D.C. on the street corner -- no station, so when the weather's bad -- be prepared.

The Thirsty Burglar

I can't explain any better than Mitch:

I moved in November to a house with an old housemate of mine. It was one of those last minute deals where I was flying by the seat of my pants. We enjoyed living together before so we decided to do it again. It's been fun until we got robbed. Someone came into our house in the middle of the night and took her purse, her houseshoes and some money. They also made a pot of coffee. Then two days later, our neighbors were robbed and they made themselves a glass of wine. The thirsty burglar!

Thank Buddha for my open minded parents.

Wild Things

I stopped in Books of Wonder and purchased five of Robert's books, and walked out thinking... hey, why didn't I buy more??? Sweetly happy to see me, Robert and I decided we'd want a rematch of Pictionary with the gang we had before... and I was just thinking... knowing Robert puts me one degree away from Maurice Sendak of Where the Wild Things Are. How cool.
