#892: Go to a record show

People at record shows love records more than I can imagine loving anything inanimate.

If you read that in a disparaging tone, please go back and re-read it in an awe-filled, slightly jealous one.

#885: Use Bluetooth

It took me nearly 4 months after I received Bluetooth headphones for Christmas (after specifically asking for them) to actually use them. I’d been waiting till I could more easily run again–because somehow I still think one day I will magically recover from whatever it is that makes me unable to run more than a half mile without stopping–since I thought I was really going to love Bluetooth, and I wanted it to be a special treat.

That’s not really that long when you consider there are some gifts I have from years ago that I still haven’t used. There’s something about receiving presents that makes me want to savor them before putting them to use. Read the rest of this entry »

#878: Go to an a cappella show

I always claim I can sing, that I can stay in tune, hit the right notes, etc., but that I have no range and my voice doesn’t sound good. Yes, this is probably the same as saying you can dance but you have no rhythm and you run into the other dancers.

So anyone who can actually sing impresses me. Read the rest of this entry »

#821: Nufonia Must Fall

You know how when you witness something incredible by yourself, you wish everyone you ever cared about was there too, because you want them to have this feeling you have of surprised euphoria?  So they can understand what you’re talking about when you talk about it after, too, but mainly just so they can feel the happiness piercing their skin and seeping into their veins because it’s such a singular sensation you can’t possibly describe it using words?

But then at the same time, you’re kind of pleased you’re alone for it because you’re a tiny bit scared that if you were with those people–even though these are people you love and trust and connect with–they might not feel the way you do and then it would tarnish the memory just a little?

#651: See the Metropolitan Opera outside

Despite what it may seem, I’m not a giant opera fan.  However, I am a fan of arriving to a free event at Socrates Sculpture Park really late and just sitting down on the ground and eating dinner while listening to talented people sing in foreign languages.  And not having to worry about climbing over people since this is Queens and people are hesitant to go to Queens, which works out great if you live in Queens.
