Summer's Over

I can't believe the leaves are starting to change. Summer went by way to fast.

Park on Elmwood

Now that the gas station on the corner of Forest & Elmwood has been renovated and the hotel seems to have stalled for the time being, I wish Forever Elmwood would push to open up the lawn of the Psych center along Elmwood up to the driveway before Buff State. It would be more attractive to have a park there than a rusty gate. My hope would be that the corner wouldn't look so desolate.

  • I know Delaware park is right around the corner.

Barbara Steisand

I don't really like her as it is, and this just made me smile.

"Bucky"

I can't believe it is going on, what, six months and the NYS Troopers can't catch Ralph Phillips? C'mon. At this point they should just give up instead of shooting random people in the back on ATVs at dusk.

It's not like Philips is a brainiac or anything. Ten bucks says he's in his sisters attic the whole time.

I'm getting sick of the news' station reports that the search is "intensifying". Really? That's pretty sad if your best men doing their absolute best can't catch some dumb hick.

New York's finest... at their best. Six months & counting.

Dunkin Donuts vs Timmy Ho's

I'm caught in a war of cheap coffee. I can't decide who's coffee I like more. Tim Horton's has gotten me through so many long days at work. Dunkin Donuts are starting to sprout up everywhere. I just can't make up my mind. Yesterday I had 1 cup of coffee from each.

Maybe someone has some dirty corporate secret they can tell me that will make me chose one.

Spot is dirty. I think it's gotten dirtier. I stopped going dowtown because of all the vagrants that sit in there.

City Spot is busy (which is great for people watching) but the whole place just looks so used and worn down. Anyone remember the phones on the tables @ the Spot downtown? It used to be so much fun to go there on a summer night and people watch. Now they aren't open 24/7 and the last time I was there late at night some old guy got off in the front window and we all got a free dessert for having to watch it.

Starbucks coffee is really strong and I don't really enjoy it. Everything there is either super bitter or super sugary.

Adium

has some cool software for the mac.

Adium is neat; a far cry from whatever multi-messaging program was out for OS 9. I'm probably one of the few people that didn't know about this thing, but I figured it was cool and worth a post.

Cleveland

I went to Cleveland yesterday. I have never been to Cleveland before. It was cleaner than I expected and the streets were wider. I was not as impressed with their waterfront as I was expecting, given everything I had heard about it.

The waterfront was totally inaccessible to pedestrians. Sure they had a lot of stuff on the lakes edge, but if you just wanted to walk along the water, you couldn't.

On the flip side. It was so cool to hang out and relax. I had dinner at the Cleveland Chop House. Sweet steak house if you ever have a chance to go. The food was really, really good. The only problem was that everything was so good and so heavy that you are only able to eat a little bit of everything.

The Summer of Matt

I've decided to take every other Friday off and enjoy myself this summer. Today I went to the gym, played with my dogs and took them for a long walk, went for a bike ride, cleaned up around the house, went out to India Gate for lunch then sat outside and relaxed and typed a paper.

The downside is that I'm a little sunburned and my laptop battery is almost dead.

I might sell my soul to have the whole summer have the weather we had this week.

Where the bike racks go?

I've started riding my bike as much as possible instead of driving my car. Mostly so that I don't have to pay for gas. The only bad part of it is that in the suburbs there are hardly any bike racks. Wegmans on Alberta insists on putting a picnic table right infront of the rack, so you either have to be the only bike that gets the end of the rack or you have to move this heavy table to free up the rest of the spots. No bank has a rack, barnes and noble (actually that entire plaza lacks a bike rack) Bert's Bikes on NF BLVD doesn't even have a bike rack.

Contrast this with the city, where almost every shop has a bike rack or a parking meter you can lock your bike up to.

The suburbs are so pedestrian unfriendly its not funny.
