It's always good to know a guy. Mine is Rob, whose old friend from Omaha needed to sublet a room in her Brooklyn for the summer. So I am the recipient of this good fortune. I took the $15 Chinatown bus down to New York Thursday night -- the Fung Wah, which did not set on fire. The place is pretty close to the subway line, it's barely more expensive than my dorm room here in Cambridge, the fellow whose room I'm taking is very nice and it's in an area of Brooklyn that's been nicely redeveloped. Oh, and down the block from the apartment there's a 24-hour combination Dunkin Donuts/Taco Bell/KFC. This spells trouble. And if that and all the rest weren't enough of a sign that I should jump on this opportunity, one of the girls who lives there homebrews.
So that's exciting. In two or three weeks I'll be down there. Now if only the thesis and TV projects would finish themselves.
