I'm with you. I hate the kids as well. Living in Astoria for 11 years now. Imagine my surprise at not smelling curry when I walked into my building, then of all things...fng Starbucks opens up at the corner. I wish I were going with you. Have a great time!

Have a nice trip--See you next fall!

The sky in the photo with this entry looks like a nuclear firestorm.
Perhaps the Judester is wishing something upon the hapless zombies of Bedford Ave?
Have fun on your vacation!

when you come back let me take you to dinner. i know what you mean; i'm angry too much of the time. i think it's because new york, the city that was my refuge, is just like everywhere else now. stupid stupid very white very middle class people. speaking of not working i remember how great the east village was when you only had to work like 2 days a month to pay rent. come the warm weather nobody worked. but that was quite a different story.

m

all the more reason for you to move to LA. i'll find you a cool pad in Venice (where all the ex-NYers live) and after a while you'll forget about how stupid all the people are and suddenly you'll realize how much you love not living in New York anymore.

Have a great time Judy!

I am not Star Jones

when did new york start sucking so bad that all the cool people can't wait to leave?

m

NY doesn't suck. I just have guilt about moving to LA.
In other news....

No trip is complete without a little musical send-off.
So here are some lyrics for you to start your day Judy:

Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said "The butter's bitter,
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter, that will make my batter better."
So she bought a bit of butter, better than her bitter butter
And she put it in her batter, and her batter was not bitter.

So it was better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.

(scat call-and-response)

Problem is, if you attempt to move somewhere else, that place has already been infested with scat-heads, too. Places like Boulder, Vail, Bozeman, Madison, Austin, and other cool places have also long been over-run with them. Moving will require chess-like planning to figure out the last place fat white people with SUV's, brown sox/sandals and front yards that look like a faded Playskool museum will not live. I might suggest Fairplay, Colorado. Sure, it's 2.5 hours to Denver and there is only one small outpost grocery store/liquor store and all the pickups have gun-racks in them, but nobody will jack with you. As they say there, everything is ultimately inconvenient, which keeps the a-holes away. Also, 40 below zero keeps them away as well, if you can take that. Fargo is nice.

the problem with most of Colorado, outside of a few select hoods in Denver and all of Boulder is
that -- the place is crawling with right wing Christian fundamentalists. i have rellies in Denver and i almost never see non-white people there.

NYC doesn't suck. I've had it pre and post Starbucks and I too have to smell my Polish neighbor's daily cabbage fests, but all the corporate coffee in the world could never drive me away. I just do a daily 'sunshine of the spotless mind' and float through the UES unscathed. My favorite part about NYC is coming home. I don't have to deal with any stupid people in MY fantasy world.

i'm with you, dategirl. if i don't get out from time to time, i feel all ´bout-to-explode and stuff. happily, ich bin in deutschland, und all ist gut. stuttgart is sunny, at least for now, and warm, at least for now. i´ve been in nyc long enough that i´ve got the ´´i´ll take what i can get´´ mindset. nyc just wears a sister down. but man, i am glad that you have not moved away like everyone else. and i look forward to seeing you sometime soonish after my return from the fatherland. oh, and yes, i did eat two wurst with bratkartoffeln (roasted taters) for lunch. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
i hope your time away was fantastisch!

Americans aren't fat because they eat Bratkartoffeln and Currywurst, they're fat because they eat High Fructose Corn Syrup and Nutra-Sweet. If Brats made you fat then all those 6'3" blonde supermodels in Ostfriesland would weight 275, but don't.

ehhh, who said that brats and wurst made a lady fat? i consider bratkartoffeln and wurst a solid part of any healthy diet. everything in delicious moderation.

off to go eat some more now. (really.)
