what I do for fun in my hometown

Tonight I went to go see a New York-based old-timey intellectual band at the Jewish Mother here in Virginia Beach. I thoroughly enjoyed their new song regarding the ways in which love is like the square root of two, in decimal form.

One nice thing about traveling alone is that I don't need to justify my preference for setting the rental car GPS to "route with least use of highways" (i.e., the slowest route), just so I can see which stores in my hometown have been converted into new stores.

On the way back, at the late-late hour of 11:45pm, I had a hard time finding a fast-food cheeseburger. I really wanted one, as one of my major goals for this vacation was to drive (just the driving is kind of exciting for someone who lives in New York and doesn't own a car) around Virginia Beach with the driver's side window open, listening to local hip-hop station 103 JAMZ and eating a fast-food cheeseburger purchased from a drive-through window.

This, I have accomplished. Also, I got a free kazoo at the show.

Happy New Year! I hope this, my first post, gets through.

It seems you can indulge in the joys of suburbia: fast food, chain stores, burning gas.

I however, as a New York fan, must settle for Champagne, nightclubs, and the opera.

How we suffer in the City! Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to tell our suburban cousins how much we suffer here in New York that way.

When you return you must come up with a sketch comparing the two.
