Favorite thing to do in NYC: 1. Get $0.99 slice of pizza, take it to quiet area, eat the $0.99 slice of pizza. 2. Go to Central Park. 3. Admire the beautiful people of mid-town Manhattan, and then cringe when I overhear them talking like people in high-school. 4. Telling people that I live in NYC, and hearing them tell me it is expensive, then I say I have a cheap 2-bedroom apartment in mid-town, and then watching their reaction, which usually involves a surprised reaction because it is unusual to have a cheap apartment in mid-town Manhattan, even surprising. 5. Not working on random weekdays, and creeping out of my apartment to feel sorry for everybody else who has to work, and then I feel glorious. Simply glorious.
