(Jul 9) To kill some time before dinner with Preed, I finally returned to Roosevelt Island.

modern dinosaur
Out on Long Island, What is this scary thing?

awaiting a hotel no one wants
Destruction complete

its residents shipped off to a vastly suckier location
Over to Roosevelt Island, the shell of Coler-Goldwater Hospital

a total ghost town
Typical of work done by large contractors,

hurry up and do nothing
It’s the middle of the day, and no work in sight taking place

i saw a total of *one* vehicle behind the fence
This is why it’s going to take years,

what's the hurry, right?
Everything takes forever when you’re not actually doing anything.

cheaper than doing the right thing though
All this blocked off for the convenience of the construction that’s not taking place

drum guy
He’s usually out there playing when I walk by in the daylight.

how does he know?
The sign changed again.

i am not a facebook addict
I am not a fan even.

These mimosas have yet to fall to the disease wiping them out.

they're not just for brunch anymore
They remind me of my maternal grandparents

lindsay and delilah
Little did they know, they were about to move again.

The last trip of a long day begins.

it's her world, they just play in it
Who’s in the way?

She’s the queen of the apartment.

And home again.

No Dorkbot for me this month either. If I don’t make it in May, I’ll have to wait until September.

yay windows
My bank’s technology choices continue to frighten me, though unsurprising they may be.

gates ave. station
Lindsay has moved again.

touch me!
Delilah has become the most affectionate cat I’ve ever seen. When she goes back in heat again, it’s going to be crazy.

a couch full of friends
They’re glad it’s almost over at this point.

diesels in the night, exchanging horn blasts
Then I ended up out on Long Island, taking the lamentable 6:49PM from Stony Brook. This train takes 30 minutes longer to get to the city than any other since it waits in stations while the rush hour traffic passes it on the single track of the Port Jefferson Branch.

Time passes more quickly than work comes in. I make a lot more banking trips now.

This is the Union St. end of this place

Further down Union St. in Park Slope

woe unto those with no connectivity
The Subway is the original network

I saw Lindsay and Delilah, and Rachel and Greg,…

high-tech lap, low-tech lap
and Sarah and Zack
