It's 8:00 am on Monday morning. I'm in my office at my desk but having a hard time getting started. While chugging down some coffee, I thought I'd throw out a few items.
-I've lived in NYC, on and off, for most of my life. I don't think it's ever been hotter or more humid than it was this weekend. It was so hot that the streets of Manhattan were practically empty as everyone either fled for the beach or stayed indoors. So many air conditioners were turned on Saturday that ConEd set an all-time record for weekend energy consumption.
-Lots of celebrities seem to be blogging these days. Moby, Gene Simmons, RuPaul, and William Shatner all have their own blogs. The one person whom I thought I'd never see with their own blog? None other than "The Donald".
-I've stayed in my fair of nice hotels during my lifetime. But never as much as Russell Crowe. Seems his one-night stay at the Mercer is going to cost him over $11 million!
-And for an extra $40/night, we'll have a homeless person sleep outside your room and pee on your newspaper! See the latest Vegas attraction.
-If it's true that you learn something new every day, may THIS be the one thing for today. Who knew?
By the way, congrats go out both to my real-friend Jim and my internet buddy Brandon. Both their wives gave birth to beautiful, healthy baby girls last week. And though both fathers graduated from U.Penn, I'm sure the kids will turn out ok anyway.
