chair, apartment

now it's overheard

"I read a ton of magazines. I usually read them in about 20 to 30 minutes at the gym. But, Maxim takes me a few hours. It has so many great articles that are smart and funny. And it's all in eight point type." -- female loud talker at restaurant, overheard

A few things that entertain me about the gym: all of the people in their own headphone created worlds, all of the completely bizarre abdominal exercises that people do, finding out that the Red Wings are in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

I went to U-Village (people in this neighborhood should start calling it either "the village" or "the northeast village") to pick up new iPod headphones. Apparently, the NEV is a great place to take children. In the new section -- by the second Starbucks, the Apple Store, etc. -- they have the stupidest fountains ever. They're not even fountains. They are sections of a wall that spill water onto the sidewalk.
