Since it was sunny today, the view from my office was amazing.
The apartment is all set for tomorrow. The rent is only slightly less than my take-home pay in my first job.
Because of yesterday's "no-Android" news, I ordered an iPhone today. I chose to pick it up at the Apple store in the Upper West Side to make an excuse to go up there. As a "grown-up," I don't need an excuse, but these are the mental games we play. I took an express train there and so therefore overshot it by 40 blocks (some "grown-up"). When I finally made it to the Apple temple, their systems were down. I ate at a nearby Italian restaurant (table for 1!) and had a so-so meal with so-so wine. When I returned to the store, the systems were even further down, so I gave up on this for the day.
Here's a picture from my hotel room (the glass makes it slightly distorted). It's pretty much the same as the above but at night. Last night the ESB was purple. I didn't realize it has a schedule for its colors. It honors things ranging from the very honorable to the very dubious.
Fortunately I bought a bottle of nice California cab, Stag's Leap Artemis, yesterday which has more than made up for the mediocre Barolo (or so they called it) with dinner.
