Yikes, cardiac appointment? Are you ok 8ball? (If you don't want to talk about it, that's fine of course. I don't mean to ask too personal questions, just expressing concern.)

Thanks for your concern Rhiz, I'm fine and dandy. I've been having quite a few palpitations over the last year and an ECG didn't show anything unusual, but since my mother has a back-to-front heart with a hole in it my doctor wants me to wear a monitor for a week just to see if anything unusual is recorded.

you new englanders are mean! i'd almost want to go back, if i could move into the apartment i left in somerville, and if nyc weren't the BEST CITY EVER. like we don't have donuts and ice cream. you know what else we have? trains that run 24/7! puppet shows about the evils of dogfighting! i can have vegan pizza delivered from any one of three pizza places in my neighborhood! i can buy pints of lula's ice cream at the grocery store! judah friedlander once kicked my friend in the leg while trying to squeeze behind her chair in atlas, and she jumped and got frosting from her oreo cream donut on her nose!

hope it all turns out well. i had to do that a few years ago for the same reasons, turns out i have a rather insignificant hole, never knew about it and it never bothered me. the monitor is fun, if you do have any palpitations you have to call a service and the machine makes these funky alien beep-beep-boop-boop noises. Thoroughly amusing, but I recommend not going anywhere you need to pass through a metal detector when you're wearing it [learned that the hard way, courthouse was a bad idea, hehe] Take care!

That's pretty much what I was going to say. I would feel bad, but NYC has everything. I'm hoping to toughen up and go for a visit to eat all of the things. And MOO SHOES! Although we do have Sudo Shoes, but it's on the other end of the world. (I live in JP.)

Speaking of, the best thing about my day will be if Peace O' Pie delivers to JP tonight. I will eat pizza and drink wine and watch vamps.

Visit NYC! Eat all the things and buy shoes and pet the cats at Moo Shoes! And and and! Oh there's so much.
Clearly I just returned from visiting and am psyched about returning. I'd have a hard time living there, but visiting is something I could do time and time and time again.

man! we have different experiences living here! I expect that has to do with vegan options in brooklyn vs queens. i wish i could love NYC that much! But I have seen judah freidlander walking around. that was pretty cool. Maybe if I left my house more, I'd feel differently.

Wilson had to do it. I had to go into the exam room with him to translate, which was super fun with the nurse shaving his chest and everything.

ETA: I hope you get good news, 8ball!

Torque--they didn't think they ought to patch the hole?

My Conscious Box arrived today and I got a super sweet thank you card. I LOVE thank you cards. I don't expect to get them but they certainly do make my day.

Nope, I've apparently had it all my life, played competitive sports without problems, never had a problem with my oxygen saturation, so no need to [it's little, and it was interesting seeing it compared to the hole my daughter had, which was so gaping that you could hear the noise it made without even having your ear touch her chest- and definitely had to be repaired].

Wilson could have gone to my cardiologist- who was Brazilian, from the city we moved to! Small world.

That IS random!

I was asking because my friend had something similar, but they didn't know about it until she had a stroke. She's fine now and everything. They patched her. I'm not sure what size the hole was.

Mine are both academic!

Last night I noticed my department had opened a second section of the class I need to take next semester to graduate on time. I'd been waitlisted for the other section for some time and have been really, really stressed about it. (Another semester would end up being about another 10k for me.) It's actually at a better time for me anyway. Win!

Then just now, my advisor okayed me for an elective that will mean my schedule is just Tuesday/Thursday... no commuting a third day! I cannot tell you how happy and relieved that makes me.

RC--where is this magical gym/vegan restaurant combination?

The restaurant is Peace O'Pie. They have really been making a wide variety of yummy desserts lately! And then there is some sort of gym place right nearby where my coworker does martial arts. Not sure what the name of it is.


Aha! Peace O' Pie has some mighty fine desserts! That's where I got the cookie that was bigger than my face! They've also been messing around with doughnuts. They updated Facebook today to say they're thinking about experimenting with jelly doughnuts. If I can get a Boston creme pie doughnut, I'd be in heaven.


Not a doughnut, obviously, but the Boston cream cake/pie in VPiTs is phenomenal. BCP is my dad's favorite dessert, and it won him over.

going outside is, in my experience at least, pretty key to the ooshy-gooshy lovestruck new york experience. leave your house and come to mine! i have cool celebrities! i can walk you right up to john hodgman's window! we'll order pizza and laugh at all the sad vegans who can't live it up new york style!

really, i don't have much money, either. if i didn't have the coop, there would never be money for extras. or i'd have to cancel my phone and internet and do all my work via library wifi (this day might come yet). i thought about moving to queens the last time i had to move, and the only thing that gave me serious pause was that i had no idea what would happen to me re: groceries. i could live without the restaurants, but not without the bulk bins and $1/pound organic potatoes/apples/kabocha. and i got SO lucky to find an apartment i could afford. i still can't believe i live here. i'm half-afraid to have people over, because i know how hard it is to find a reasonably priced, decent-sized apartment in an o.k. neighborhood, and i watch law & order, and i can sort of imagine someone killing me for this place.

Makes sense! i've been to the coop and i know it's pretty magical! I have pretty much everything I want in terms of ethnic foods in the grocery, but nothing organic, nothing bulk. I have to go to whole foods for all my specialty vegan items besides soymilk and tofu. i actually really like my neighborhood, but it's not very vegan. however, we did just get a 16 Handles, so I can actually go out for ice cream (sorbet) whatever and all the toppings I want. I REALLY shouldn't complain because I totally have it better than others. I just find it hard to love new york on a tight budget.
hodgman and i are already BFFs, though.
