life in and around NYC is insane

the cockroach that ate Cincinatti

good Lord, it was at least 5 inches long!

bad morning today, cold, with a steady rain and lots of wind -- my umbrella turned into a useless pile of purple fabric and broken wire. had to wade across the street near the train station. on the train, I accidentally stepped on one man's toes, and knocked a lady's travel mug over (though she probably should not have been keeping it on the floor in the first place!) and when the train arrived in Penn, I stood up and walked to the door. and just as I was about to step onto the platform (ever mindful of the gap -- someday they'll actually fix it)...I saw THAT THING scurrying along the platform, not more than 12 inches away from me.
