New York Systems

I'm David. I live in Astoria. During the day I work at a startup. Other times I visit bookstores.
This blog is my curio collection, sort of. I'll have a place of my own for essays... someday.

Arrived in Boston around two in the afternoon and immediately started walking around, finding my way to Boston Common and then working my way north-ish from there. Saw some of the oldest parts of the downtown and a few revolutionary war locations, including Bunker Hill. I’m staying in the Park Plaza Hotel tonight and will probably go wander around MIT tomorrow before hopping back on a Greyhound home.

Pictures coming soonish.

Current theories as to the identity of my anonymous hate mailer

  • A member of the NYC chapter of the Golden Dawn still nursing a grudge from the time I made fun of them on twitter.
  • Someone from my image board days who has suddenly developed a slow-burning hatred of me.

Other than that, I can’t really think of anyone I’ve wronged, or who would hate me…



I Like Your Glasses, a literary speed dating event at Housing Works.

I was the cute boy taking photos all night.

The gentleman in the front is a volunteer barista at the bookstore, in fact! He was in the cafe this morning. HERO all around.

Thanks so much to Jesse for capturing the magic that was I Like Your Glasses.

Oh, look, there I am, laughing my ass off!

How are you doing?

At this *precise* moment? I could be doing better. I’m currently dealing with the intestinal aftermath of three glasses of wine in quick succession (it turns out my alcohol tolerance is less incredible than I once though).

More generally, however: pretty good! The decision to move to New York has paid off in with a rather rewarding job, a good social circle, and the wonderfulness that is being a young person in a vibrant city like NYC.

I appear to have blown up my right knee walking around Central Park in the snow today. Pictures (of the park, not the knee) forthcoming.

Changed my twitter name.

I’m @alazyreader now. Well, I’ve always been a lazy reader. But now that’s my name.

just so you’re all aware

if anyone sees pants-less pictures of me on the subway somewhere on the internet, will you let me know? I didn’t get a chance to take them myself.

Maybe that’ll help.

The stock has begun.

oh oh oh

One more thing I want to do this year, to add onto last night’s recap.

I want to cook more, and cook for other people.
