As I watch HGTV, it always seems to be a requirement that an apartment has a dishwasher. Apparently, it makes for less chores, less housework and more time for other things.

Luckily, my apartment has a dishwasher.
Unluckily, I do not own enough dishes to fully require the service of a dishwasher.

Except to store my wet washed dishes.


Song Of The Moment: Drake - Fireworks
Comment: Can't wait for this album to come out. It's going to be a Lady Gaga album, no idea why you like it; but you can't stop playing that darn thing.

That's nine. Which means I've implicitly signed up for death in 2010.

This will make or break me.

Let's hope it's not the latter.


On another note, there is definitely nothing quite like reliving things you see in sitcoms. Today, we played some touch football in Battery Park. Just like out of the Friends episode. To keep in spirit, we kept sending someone "deep". To keep in even more spirit, some girls stopped by to watch. Brish yells out "nice boots!". Lining up near the sideline, we hear "nice boobs!". The girls look down confused. Their eyes brighten up as they hope we are not complete asshole and were talking about footwear. Unfortunately, they did not accept our invitation to join in. I did not get the opportunity to ask someone where the Dutch came from.


Song Of The Moment: Jason Mraz - I'm Yours
Comment: I am definitely yours.

The 2009-2010 season is underway and I have a few quick questions/comments already:

1) Huge benefit: they now have both the home and away broadcast available.
2) Huge weirdness: they don't play the Canadian commercials. Now, I don't miss the commercials per say, but they keep playing the mind numbing, anger causing elevator music while they wait for the commercials to end.
3) Matt Devlin < Chuck Swirsky
4) Vince Carter is injured already? Wait, why did I put a question mark behind that.
5) Isn't it interesting that so many of the good Raptors draft picks that were moved suffered injury woes? Marcus Camby, Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter. Are we breaking them then trading them? :)

On another note:
In my mind, the definitive guide.

Game time!

New York, Cell Phone, Drama

Discovery is a beautiful thing.
Realization, on the other hand, can be a slap in the face.

Case in point, yesterday, I had an event that made carrying my cell phone inconvenient. As such, I decided that yesterday would be a cell phone free day. Little did I know how attached to my phone I really am.

1) Always checking your phone while waiting for public transit. While I knew about this, I never realized how much it had become second nature. While going to my intramural game, I had to take the subway, then switch to a bus. Waiting for the subway was not bad since NY (inexplicably) does not have a signal in stations still. However, while waiting 20 minutes for the bus, there was nothing to do. Sure, I had music on; but that did not really do enough to absorb my boredom.

2) After a long time away from the phone, checking it intently to find out the latest X. After the game, everyone, and I mean everyone, pulled their phones out to check up on email, calls, etc. Me? Sitting there lamely with my thumbs to twiddle. Not that it's a bad thing, but I was wondering what the situation was at work, my email account, etc. etc. Same at the bar after the game. Nothing. Just wondering...

3) Remembering things. Heading to the game, I was uncertain where the field was, how to get there, and when it was. I had been to the field once, so I vaguely remember the route, which corner the bus stop was at and what time the bus came. Without my phone, there was always doubt. The inability to double check create an aura of uncertainty. Before a data plan, I could safely say I would have checked, remembered, and if needed, written it down. Now, I choose not to remember and look it up when needed. Is this better or worse in the long run? Does my phone help me remember the 'mundane' things and concentrate on more complicated tasks? Does it let me focus more brain cells on other problems? Or does it provide a crutch so less brain cells are engaged?

Yesterday's experiment was eye-opening. I knew I was attached to my phone; I had never realized how much. Now it's just time to determine if this is a benefit or detriment to my life.
