the downside of living in the greek hood

note to self: crumbly phyllo dough and wet shirt=a giant gluey mess that will make you look like a retard who wears dirty shirts and can’t eat properly. coworkers totally respect that.

    Awesome. I will plan to visit NYC sometime in the next month or so, so maybe we can go eat Greek MEAT together.

    ditmar. yeaaaaah. oh, and I don’t remember how my friend Robin and I got there whenever we went. We might have gotten off the N early or something. Or taken a cab. Hmm. The only reason I know anything about Astorian cuisine is because my friend Robin was there and I spent lots of time with her. And because I dated a girl who lived there. Robin lived at 35-34 24th or something like that. Right off the Astoria stop on the N. But there’s like a new train now or something. Confusion….

    I got to ride the J train back in July. It was excellently exciting.
