Welcome to our kittens’ new playground. It also serves as a recreational center, steam room, race track, and ultimate cat fighting cage match venue.
By the way, the sound of two wrestling kittens thumping against the side of a bathtub at 3 am sounds exactly like a burglar trying to break into your apartment. Which adds an additional level of fun to the game.

It’s really an uncanny resemblance, don’t you think?
- Creating a gallery wall in your apartment is an ideal form of procrastination. Those frames never hang straight.
- My life is basically one long search for a skinny mirror.
- My Bar Method studio is having teacher try outs to staff their forthcoming midtown location. I seriously thought about auditioning for exactly 0.32 seconds before nearly having an aneurysm from laughing so hard.
- Microsoft Excel is the spawn of Satan himself.
- My new Warby Parkers came this week. I can actually see things now. Everyone on TV is a lot uglier.
- I am currently on week three of four consecutive weekends out of town. I need a lazy weekend night in, complete with soft clothes, wine, and kittens. May 18, I’m looking at you.
Remove the words “in a movie” and you basically have my life, in gif format.

Well this was bound to happen. Disgruntled residents of a co-op at 99 Bank Street filed a lawsuit against the city and Department of Transportation over the placement of bike share racks on their street. DNAinfo reports that the property owners want a dock for 31 Citi Bikes to be removed from the corner of Bank and Hudson Streets. It was installed in the parking lane on the north side of Bank Street across from the Bleecker Street playground. The lawsuit argues that the bike station “severely endangers the health and safety of the residents of 99 Bank Street” and that its placement violates a city rule that says no street furniture should be placed opposite a building entrance.
“Severely endangers the health and safety of the residents of 99 Bank Street”
But if you can BUY a bike and store it in your overpriced condominium’s basement, then bikes are totally the best, right???
The privilege, it burns.
Edited to add: The lawsuit was dismissed. Presumably, the residents who filed it are still jerks.
Anonymous asked: Newer blog reader, so sorry if this is common knowledge. How did you and the Dude meet? What's he like in a few words?
Welcome! The Dude and I met at our old job. SCANDALOUS, RIGHT? I know, I know. But despite the fact that we worked at the same place, we never actually worked on anything together. So our pre-relationship flirting was limited to happy hours and marathon Gchat sessions. Ah, modern love.
The top five words I’d pick to describe him, in no particular order, are: hilarious, brilliant, rational, silly, and reallycutebutt.
“No, bro. No coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deepwater fish, no potatoes, no tomatoes, no bell pepper, no eggplant, no wheat, no meat, no soy.”
“Hold up. Did you say no bell pepper?”
“Yeah. No bell pepper.”
“What’s wrong with bell pepper?”
I hope to someday live in a world where nobody has to live in fear about being honest and open about who they are.
Bravo, Jason Collins. Thank you for breaking the ice and starting this conversation.
(It should go without saying but I don’t advise you read the comments on this article.)
