Last Friday I arrived in Williamsburg - where we found an awesome backdrop for photos.

Too bad the body was so tight... or perhaps it's the jeans!

(Not his - mine!)

Then we walked down to East River State Park.

Yes, there really is such a thing.
(And shiny new high-rises tower over it).

Later we walked on Bedford Avenue a bit, followed by an excellent vegan meal at Chai Thai.

Saturday morning was rainy. We headed to the Blue Bottle Coffee Co, which features overpriced drip coffee that's ground and roasted per order.

I don't really drink coffee, but wanted to see what the all the fuss was about.

We waited and took pictures while the brew-mistresses filled our order, and the coffee dripped.
And dripped.

And dripped.

Then we drank the strong and wonderful brew, while standing at the sole table (no chairs). The head immediately started to feel numb. But I kept drinking anyway. And then started talking much more - and much faster - than usual.

But I was able to sit down for a minute. Just a minute.....

....before it started to rain. Again.

What's offensive about this Billyburg sign is not so much the message, but its misplaced apostrophes.

  3. are you visiting with boodi? Like the pics of you, and I liked the its it's page--I can think of another test for its it's, but it's rude.
