The Return Home

I had given up all hope of returning home. Around nine I sent yet another application to the NYC office but this time as an 11. The odds of an eleven making the cut in NYC where there are plenty of jobs and not many people who want to go there are pretty good. A nine doesn't stand much of a chance anywhere. A friend of mine is a twelve and still waiting to return to Hartford.

I prepared an email to the lady who inerviewed me thanking her for her time and letting her know I was trying again as an eleven. Nines and below must pass a writing test to get hired. I passed the test and was eligible for hire.

I should be home around August if all goes according to plan. There will be more frequent Rav Roov interviews and some extra visits from drummaster.

The lady on the other end asked me if I wanted to think about the job offer. My response was send me home. Vermont is a great place and I met wonderful people whom I will miss, but it isn't home

Things to look foward to in NYC other than my family

1 Ethnic food of all types but especially the elusive Bialey and Knish. Cuban and Korean Barbeque are especially missed.

2 The Strand Book Store and The Forbidden Planet. The Strand is a fun placeand one can find Mitchner hardcovers for five dollars. Odds and Ends and 1/2 price reviewers copies are down stairs.

3 WABC radio and MARK LEVIN. Bob Grant has retired and the next best thing is Mark Levin.
"Get off the phone you big dope". There is also Curtis and Commie

4 Public Transportation

5 Broadway

6 24 Nighlife

7 The Metropolitan Museum of Art

8 The Bronx Zoo, Bombers and Stan's Sports World

9 The greatest newspaper in the country The NY Sun and magazine shops with every title from all over the planet.

10 No comments about an unusual accent.

I normaly don't talk about Brown's blog of slander. However, he seem to have a few unusual photos of himself there. Normally, one doesn't place photos like that on the web. However, nobody has ever accused Brown of being normal. What a sicko!!!

Damn, that's a hoot, Beak. I was in northern Vermont yesterday and I thought I should have invited Beak for some knish's on me. Then I figured where can you get knishs in Vermont.

Fact.

Yes you cross into Montreal or order them from a Supermarket in Burlington. No thank you, I will stick with such wonderful staples as NY Deli Mustard, Knishes and Korean Barbeque.

Hey Beak! Sorry you won't be coming back to NY!

Here's something to maybe cheer you up. One of your favorite commenters [I won't mention who --you'll see when you watch], made it all the way to a short video compilation of hateful comments taken from Digg.com.

I'm trying to think of what I still love about NYC....

-Memories of what it used to be like before the mallification of the city.
-The Museums
-The National Academy of Design
-Central Park
-The Circle Line
-What's left of the real working class neighborhood in the boroughs.
-New York accents! Rare and hard to find!
-What's left of the independent bookstores
-Bagels
-The publishing industry
-Street vendors
-Autumn in NY
-Mr. Softee

Mr. Softee? That's Beamish.

Someone talk Ducky out of suicide so they'll be at least one person that feels sorry for him.

Beak,
Congratulations! I know that you've yearned for home.

I'm not a NYC person, but I know how I'd feel if I were uprooted from Virginia.
