#941: SculptureCenter

I’ve run by the side street where the SculptureCenter is located at least 10 times over the past few years without having any idea it was there.

It might be because the area surrounding it is mostly comprised of construction sites.

#940: Use a sun lamp

If you asked me to name one person who might benefit from light therapy to combat Seasonal Affective Disorder, I would tell you to look no further than in front of you.

I’m not saying I technically have SAD. I probably don’t, if it’s in fact an actual type of depression. I am gloomy a whole lot, and negative even more often than that, but I don’t think I’ve ever experienced the total and utter long-term despair that seems to attack a person’s mind suffering from actual depression.

But I do feel terrible when the weather’s bad. Read the rest of this entry »

#939: Take the Second Ave Q

Do not be misled by this title. The Second Ave Q is NOT the Second Avenue Subway the city has been promising for years. It’s not the one that was advertised to open in 2012 back when I first moved to New York in 2006.

It’s easy to be confused because the MTA is promoting this new half-line as the Second Avenue Subway, despite it only having 3 new stops on 2nd Ave. Don’t be led astray.

It’s only a stand-in for what everyone has been hoping and waiting for. It’s not the real thing.

#938: Go water running

The person who invented the float belt you wear while water running in deep water had little understanding of the human body’s shape. Let me rephrase that. Like the person who invented the FlipBelt, the person who invented the float belt did not take into account the shape of your average person.

Wait. What I really mean to say is I would be shocked to find out either of these accessories was invented by a woman.

#937: Scottadito Osteria Toscana

I’ve had this place in mind for at least 5 years (the gmail evidence only goes back to 2012, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I hadn’t read about it before then and neglected to write it down). It offers a reasonably-for-this-city priced brunch with drinks, and…actually, that’s all I knew about it.

#936: Go upstairs at night

I know my upstairs neighbors by how they bug me.

When I first moved into this apartment, the guy above me had a leaky air conditioner that dripped through the ceiling onto my bed and caused water damage that took my super 4 months to get someone to repair. Once he left, a man moved in for a short amount of time and moved furniture all over most nights. Next, the person above me watched TV loudly–never for very long, but still. After that, the woman upstairs would always come home screeching into her phone.

The current upstairs neighbor? Stomping. Read the rest of this entry »

#935: Watch Tickled

You know what they say: one man’s tickle is another man’s torture.

Or something like that.

I’d been looking forward to seeing the Tickled documentary since it came out over the summer. It follows a weird concept–this is an objective statement, believe it or not–of investigating Competitive Endurance Tickling competitions and the person behind these events.

See. Weird. Read the rest of this entry »
