The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

I used to watch "Friends" and wonder two things. Why does nobody in NYC lock there doors and who practically lives in a coffee shop?

I think I understand the latter a bit more now. Since coming out to the Midwest farmland of America there's not a lot to do. Except drink. And seeing as it wouldn't be appropriate to turn up to work with the kids of America (woah-oh) in a less than sober state coffee is the beverage of choice.

There's two really good coffee shops near to where I squat, I mean live. One is two minutes away. The other is twenty five minutes away. You know, for the days I want to go for a drive in a straight line.

Right now I'm in the one quite far away. There's a guy playing guitar and he's pretty good but it's taking all my self control to not ask for a go on his axe. I'm even throwing a few quiet harmonies in even though I don't know his songs. I just get a look every now and again that I'm taking to mean "dude, stop". Oh well, I don't care.

Coffee shops are fun.

But I still don't get why people don't lock their apartment doors in NYC.

Go to the highest mountain. That's where the rave barn is.

Oh, wait...I forgot- Doug visited there last weekend...

Dan, we lived in manhatten when I was a kid and not only did we lock our doors, but the front door of the building was locked as had to get buzzed in. Then we moved to LI and my parents never locked our door...I don't know why.. they just didn't... and then for my whole married life...25 years this year.. I can't really remember locking the doors either... until now.. now I live in TN and yeah... I lock my door, if I could I would put a bar across it. For all the years I lived without locking my door, I never had a problem. I move to the wonderful south... and wham, my car gets broken into, not once... but twice. On the other hand, if it had been locked, they would have broken the window....soooo..I guess I saved myself some money.

Yes, my image of New York apartments is having not just one, but several locks on your door, plus a peep hole to see who's out there. TV is a different reality, however. Series like Friends and Seinfeld are funnier because the neighbors just barge right in. It creates a lot of comedic situations, like catching your roommate kissing your girlfriend or whatever.

I grew up in a big city, but I live in suburbia now. Still, I always lock my house and my car, because I've been a theft victim one too many times.

LOL. I lock my door my car, anything with a lock...I lock. Life is not a sitcom, so I lock my shit up...I can't sleep if the door is unlocked.
