Our waitress at Bowlmore turned out to be another fellow Brighton High School '93 grad. It never ceases to shock to me, running into so many HS grads in this huge city, but oh so small town of ours.

The new Santiago Calatrava design for the WTC Transportation Hub is absolutely stunning. I can't wait to see the real thing.

So, I guess it's almost official as of next week...I cannot keep a secret! I will be managing one of my favorite bands, and I'm extremely excited about the opportunity they are giving me. Cordalene has some interesting opportunities ahead in the horizon, and I'm just so passionate about this band. You can find out more about them here...there's a few tracks to listen to as well. Let me know what you think:
There goes that break in August I was gonna have!


I forgot what they're called, but they blend in with plants...can you find them in the photo?

Ode to Friendster

Here's an example of a Friendster message I received today:

Joe here
Hi my name is Joe.I am a 25m from Queens,NY. I am Italian/Israeli. I work as an Armed Guard at the
Empire State Bldg. and am studying to be a Medical Doctor in the near future. I was scrolling all over friendster when I finally stopped and realized how beautiful you are and wrote to you.My hobbies are baseball basketball,but my favorite thing to do is sweep that special someone off her feet[perhaps you].My personality is I am very
romantic,honest,loving and caring. I am not so interested about a girl's body or how she looks in a tight dress.....I am more interested in her quality and personality traits. If you would like to get to know me,you can write to me on or on my aim.My
screen name on AIM is Tracysboy [after my late cousin that died in a car accidet New Years 2000]. kisses, Joe | |

Does this shit EVER work???

The Discovery Launch

Did anyone watch this today? I swear I held my breath for a couple minutes it seemed while it was taking off. The photos were so surreal...loved when they showed the spacecraft separating from the boosters.

I think I talk a lot

I found out some really exciting news today, but I can't really say what yet until its official. That's the thing about blogs, you can't always be completely truthful.

On the flip side, I'm so unbelievably sad that my best friend in NYC is leaving for San Francisco on Sunday to attend the Berklee Journalism program. I mean I'm so happy for her, but I can't help but feel a little bit selfish. A bunch of my other friends are also abondoning ship on the same day as well. We'll be tearing it up on the Frying Pan on Saturday night before they drive cross country. I'm sure I'll be shedding a few tears that night...

I'm so sad I missed the Twins & Multiples Contest at Coney Island yesterday. I could have taken some cool Diane Arbus-y photos there, but unfortunately work beckons.

I've been drinking so many Starbucks Java Chip Frapuccino's that I've developed some rashes on my arms - yes, ironically I'm allergic to chocolate of all things. It's not like I stop breathing or anything, so I continue my little addiction. So, I tried switching to the Green Tea Frapuccino today...they're really pretty to look at, but I'm afraid green tea makes me really jittery.

At least I'm wide awake while I type all my papers for school. I'm so happy that I've been able to choose such cool companies for these potentially boring papers like: Bono's EDUN, the eco-friendly clothing line, for my marketing plan analysis, and VICE's multimedia company for my media brand analysis.

Oops, sorry Dad!

I think I might have inadvertantly sent an email back to my dad with the link to my blog on the bottom of my email signature. Hopefully, I haven't said anything too offensive, but I'm sure my dad is happy to see me writing. My dad always said the best job in life is to be a writer. "Write a novel or write songs!"

My dad's email address and company name are both called Sarasam, which means family? I think their language. He always says he carries us/our names (my sister Sam and I) with him whereever he goes. The house he had built in India for us has two doors made of Sandalwood. The front door is a hand-carving of Saraswathi, the goddess of arts & learning who I'm named after. The back door is a carving of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, who my sister is named after.

So Dad, if you're reading this, which I'm sure you won't tell me if you are...thanks for our names.

Mercury is officially in Retrograde!

Geminis and Virgos beware, but here is the good news:

"So what is Mercury retrograde good for? When in doubt, refer to the 'RE' rule; those two letters are the key to getting the most from this admittedly tricky period. Retreat from the frenetic nature of modern communication. Repair and reconfirm (reservations or messages, that is). Left things unresolved with an ex? Resolve them! Writing that groundbreaking novel? Reedit it! Embrace this forced reprieve from life's hectic pace to tend to anything you've neglected."

Sounds good to me.

Subway Searches & Arranged Dates

Has anyone gone through one of these searches today? I got down at my Borough Hall stop, and a bunch of police officers had set up a table for a makeshift searching station, checking literally everyone with a book bag of some sort who was entering the station. It's profoundly sad and disturbing to me that this is going to be the norm now here, but alas, this is the world we live in now.

My good friend Margaux phoned me up all excited about some Indian boy who'd be "perfect" for me. She's invited him to my 30th b-day party, which I'm having at the end of August. What the hell I figured - maybe I should just date a "nice Indian boy". After all, if I won't let my parents introduce me to one, why not let your friends find one for you. After hearing the whole schpiel (sp?)- "He's so nice, he's so intelligent, he's so hot", I asked well, "Is he funny?". Margaux responded with a defeated, "Um, no".

Frank Purdue's Chicken

I've had a shit day today. The toll is numbering about 3 who have experienced the Wrath of Crazy Sara today. To top things off I've just seen an insect scurry across my living room floor with more legs than I could even imagine counting. What is UP with the bugs in my life recently (and, not I'm not referring to guys)?? NYC is really wearing on me today. I'm seriously considering moving next fall when I'm done with school.

On a more positive note, I'll leave all you out there in Blogland with a Lost in Translationism for the night:

Frank Perdue's chicken slogan, "It takes a strong man to make a tender chicken" was translated into Spanish as "It takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate".


I know I've already posted this photo before, but I figured it was appropriate...hopefully, I won't have to post it again.

The Return of the Dead Moth

I saw another dead moth this morning at the grocery store. I stopped my cart dead in its tracks when I saw the moth laying lifeless on the ground. Memories of the giant fried moth sauteed in my Eggs Ameride a few weeks ago at Doyle's in Boston came rushing back to me.

Now, superstitious person that I am, I know that a white moth flying into someone's home means a deceased friend/relative is just visiting. And I know that a black moth symbolizes an iminent death. So, what does an already dead black moth symbolize??? Maybe I should finally read Virginia Wolfe's "The Death of a Moth" and find out.

Maybe it's good luck and not bad luck that one keeps crossing my path? Moths are also supposed to symbolize strength, speed, and beauty with their silk-spinning abilities. Moths are the new butterflies! I hope to see a live one soon...

I need to stop drinking the coffee in the evenings. I had yet another anxiety dream last night. This was another chasing dream, coupled with the same dream I have about missing my regular Wind Ensemble rehearsals (which I haven't been involved in for like 8 yrs now since I left SU). I also apparently missed some Art class I was registered for but didn't realize I hadn't been going till the very end of the semester and everyone made fun of me for showing up (the class only exists in my dreams). I woke up to another splitting headache. According to my trusty dream book, the first has to do with my desire to run from responsibility, which is something I never ever do in real life. And the 2nd, the part of me that misses and maybe feels guilty about that creative outlet that I feel like I'm missing out on a bit since I left college. And the flying dreams mean the same stuff as well...So, I'm devoting the whole month of August to doing this stuff and avoiding all things SCHOOL.

Song of the moment - Brendan Benson's "Cold Hands, Warm Heart". This song is so damn catchy I'm sure it'll still be stuck in my head in the morning when I wake up.

The Haunted Bldg on Pierrepont St.

I met a guy last night at Orit's 30th BDay Party who used to live in the haunted bldg on Pierrepont St. in Brooklyn Heights. I used to take pics of this old gothic bldg everytime I'd walk by it. I had never seen anyone enter or exit this place.

He told me about the man who used to run a porn business out of his apt. He told me about the crazy old lady with the staring problem who used to run out to buy one can of beer every hr on the hr and smoked so much that she left a trail of gray ash stains on the carpet outside her door.

While he claimed never to have seen any ghosts, he felt the presence of the priest(supposed to be the haunted one who used to do bad things to little boys), the cold spots, heard constant creaks, and witnessed a spontaneous fire in the elevator. The tenants seemed to scare him more than the possibility of the ghost. Isn't it amazing what New Yorkers will do for cheap rent?

The Ominous Fog Hanging Above Coney Island

We went to Siren for the upteenth year in a row yesterday. The best act on the bill was by far Saul Williams. He rocked the mike more than any of the other indie rock bands there. "Cause angels and messiahs, love, can come in many forms: in the hallways of your projects, or the fat girl in your dorm." ("Talk to Strangers") - Saul Williams. Brendon Benson was cool too.

There was only one thing I was really disturbed about. I get the whole 80s reemergence thing. The jelly bracelets and the synth music are fine, but what the fuck is up with the frosted jeans with the high waists??!! I never really got into the whole frosted look back in the 80s, and I still don't get it. I noticed too many pairs yesterday than I care to remember...I'm thinking of changing this from Crazy Sara's blog to Crazy Sara's Rants :)
