thing for thing for thing

i have two things today.

first, will hillary clinton never give up? although i don't particularly like slate, this article wasn't so bad. maybe this will make your day go somewhat better.

second, for those of you that don't live in new york city, this may not apply to you; however, you may be interested to learn car etiquette as it applies in manhattan. as you may or may not know, a majority of kids my age do not own cars. i did it for the first two years in the city, but what with my recent move downtown, i had to rid myself of the my beloved ride. because the subway is slow, hot, and sometimes not pleasant to the nasal section, people always warm to the idea of hitching a ride with someone who does own a vehicle. i would just like to post a few rules for would-be carpoolers. first, a car is expensive in nyc. if you're hitching a ride, pay up. one subway ride is $2. you should pay at least that for a ride in a car. second, never assume you are welcome in a car. always 1) ask permission or 2) wait until invited (preferably wait until invited). third, no talking on your cell phone while in the car (marc fehlberg). i will think of more soon and keep you updated. i have to leave work now.

my fifteen (anonymous) seconds

as some of you may know, I have a slight obsession with brian lehrer, the wnyc public radio host. today i had my fifteen seconds of fame as he read my post to kick off his open phones section of his show. i know you may not think it's that big of deal, but it's enough to keep me going for the next couple of weeks (sad, I know). listen to the show and read the post here.

to breed lilacs out of the dead ground

why is it we like april so much? who told us so? once, when i was eighteen years old or so, a friend and i would lock our doors and walk away, letting thomas stearns do our talking for us. he knew everything there was to know about april.

to tell you the truth, i'm not quite sure what I should even say on the web log. there is just a wealth of incredible information surrounding this world wide web, and i'm not sure i can keep up. there are just so many worthwhile and important things going on, that i'm not sure i can find time to give my thoughts a voice. i don't even think my thoughts matter, considering all the deeply charitable and kind people that are making our world the great place it is. so for now, just remember that winter kept us warm, covering earth in forgetful snow.
