bits and things

1. on my walk to school today, i made a mental note that,
"no, it is not warm today in new york city."
and one block later i saw a sign for a soon to be opened

my excitement made me forget how absurd it is for an italian ice shop to open in december.
rita's italian ice is the best sterile institution in america.
i could eat that stuff every day.
especially when they have pistachio.

2. i played the john adams chamber symphony last night in alice tully hall.
i loves me some john adams.
especially when he writes for the drumset
(errr, drumset - cymbals + rototoms x a whole roll of duck tape for dampening purposes)
i was a bit afraid of playing loudly though because in alice tully hall
if you scratch your forehead the wrong way,
the brotha in the back row of the audience will hear it.
...and i like playing loud?

3. vosges mo's bacon chocolate chip pancake mix?
yes, plz.

4. a mediumly boiled egg from ramen setagaya is number 7 in time out new york's best food of 2009.
ummm k.

5. i've eaten nothing but hot pockets for the past week.

6. i think wasabi would make for a good ice cream flavor.
(or maybe my taste buds are skewed from said daily hot pockets?)

7. my holiday playlist:

sufjan stevens' christmas album
owl city's ocean eyes

8. happy first night of hanukkah

I believe there exists wasabi flavoured ice cream. I have yet to try it but it should be rather good.

Ooooh Happy Hanukkah! The family I am staying with on my south african holiday are Jewish so I'm about to experience my first hanukkah (the tail-end anyway) when I get there in 4 days - SO excited!
