I arrived in New York safely. Staying the night in Long Island then heading into the city tomorrow morning.
Apparently we’ve been having technical troubles with the sign-up wiki for Saturday night’s geek dinner. If you’re planning on coming, please e-mail BL Ochman and let her know- so she can tell the restaurant how many to expect etc.
Tomorrow I’ll have a new US sim card so anyone wishing to phone me will be able to do so.
It’s great being back here… and also kinda weird. Just in case you don’t know, it’s been seven, yes, seven years since I last stepped foot in the United States. Which is quite a long time for someone holding an American passport…
Seven years should cover most statutes of limitation!
“Tomorrow I’ll have a new US sim card so anyone wishing to phone me will be able to do so.”
Just a heads up…the crank calls are from me.
Ignore at your own risk.
Wish I wasn’t stuck in multiple project hell.
The geek dinner sounds like fun.
hugh – have been reading your blog and loving your comics for a few months now. keep on truckin’, brother. you deliver a lot of snarky, thought provoking and spot-on truth here – i dig it.
enjoy your time here in my fair Apple. geek dinner, huh – sounds tre’ hipster chic. okay that wasn’t nice – have fun!
East or west home is best.
Newyork has been always an inspiration for you.
Dinner tomorrow is looking good. among those coming, Piers Fawkes and Rick Bruner.
yay for Kelley & Ping! did you have the Sweet and Spicy (wide) Noodles? did you have the Thai Iced Tea?
elsewhere, i bristled when you said “I’d forgotten how lousy the food is here. Living in Europe has spoiled me.” and then i grinned when you said “It’s one of the few towns one can never accuse of being overrated.”
it’s good to be an ex-newyorker, i think…
