We too (well, Paul actually) has been receiving NY Magazine unbidden. I read the restaurant reviews, do the crossword, and put it in the recycling.

In a similar vein, business credit card solicitations have started arriving with our address for a pizza place and person there of whom we have no knowledge. Did we take in a boarder without either of us knowing??

i'm getting free vogue and new york magazine.
but my surreal experience of the day is even weirder than that. imagine hanging with your 78 year old aunt and she comes home with more digits and from younger men, than you pull. i can only hope that my draw will improve significantly in 30 years time

'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I guess I'm the first Jersey resident here to get NY Mag? A curious distinction. Maybe they need Jersey folk to improve their demographics with advertisers.

A friend of mine passed away about a year ago. Her Facebook profile is still up, and still pops up on my home page. It's odd, but kind of good.

And she was.

domino's gluten free offering. yeah right <_<

nice disclaimers: the gf pizza will be baked in the same ovens as the regular pizzas and toppings offered may contain gluten, not to mention all the other opportunities for cross contamination. why bother? and why pay an extra $3 for something that's not actually gluten free?

Hey, it will be perfect for all those folks who think it's fashionable to eat gluten free but don't need to. Or who think that eating "gluten-free" pizza will help them lose weight.:huh: I daresay people who really do need to avoid gluten won't be taken in. Not more than once, anyway.:ph43r:

Last night I was without a laptop but decided to watch vogue.com's live stream of the Met Costume Institute Gala red carpet on my phone. Logged on at 6:30 for the two hour broadcast. At 7:30 I turned on the TV in order to view the Rangers/Caps game. Quite the multimedia experience. And whoa, some hockey game!

Hot dog aficionados will no doubt remember Catherine Scalia, known as the Hot Dog Hooker. Back in 2004 she and another women were arrested for performing sex acts in the back of a hot dog truck.

Well, she's back. She's moved upscale. Instead of the truck she hands out business cards inviting patrons to her home. She was released on bail yesterday, unrepentant.

Home style lap dances are an important public service. G-d bless her for the important and selfless work that she does.

Also, when you got it, flaunt it. I wish I had her confidence and entrpreneurial spirit

Isn't this an RTBC? Well, except that she got caught.
