17-01-07 The More It Snows

The more it snows (Tiddely pom),
The more it goes (Tiddely pom),
The more it goes (Tiddely pom),
On snowing. And nobody knows (Tiddely pom),
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom),
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom),
Are growing.

“The spring has sprung, the grass is rizz.

I wonder where them birdies is?”

Yesterday evening on my way to The Astor Center for: The Home Baker’s Meet Up and Grain-to-Glass Pop–Up Bar, (put together by GrowNYC) I decided to walk down to 72nd from the apartment and then hop the subway. Nothing too special along the river. Just a typical early May day

6-10-11 “Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?”

If you read this blog you know that I am always a day behind, I talk about yesterday as if it were today, today as if it were tomorrow. I assume this is fairly common in Blog world, although no one I follow seems to do this, but I do confuse myself sometimes and can’t quite remember when I am talking about and if something has happened or will happen “tomorrow”.

At those points I feel a bit like Winnie the Pooh: “When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.”

It was a very long day today. A full day of work followed by 4 hours at ICP. The graduating full time students have their show in 16 days (according to one group I heard) or 18 (according to another group) and are scrambling for lab time. Almost every single open lab slot is booked for the next two weeks.

The students are bargaining with each other, “I will give you my 3 hours on Station 4 if I can have 2 hours on Station 8” – they are tired enough that the European students have forgotten that we write month first and day second in the US (6/10/11 v 10/6/11) and realize too late that they have reserved on a day they can’t use – there is an air of chaos and really fraught energy filling the air. It is amusing, inspiring, and tiring  to observe.

So today, I am looking into the future and linking to an article in tomorrow’s NY Times about further government over reaction on the river… Security checks on the Hudson
