No, that's not a philosophical question. I'm just too damn good of an employee. Everyone who I tell that Nathan is at MOMA right now while I am sitting at my desk with no work to do says I should cut out early. I told Nathan to call me at 4. It's 9:58 right now. That's 6 hours away. Waaah. And he doesn't have a phone, so I can't call him.

What is it with this weather? I shouldn't complain, right? It's been great conditions for walking around the city, which I've been doing a lot of lately. But I'm supposed to go cross-country skiing in the Catskills in 2 weeks and it doesn't look like it's going to happen, because there's been no snow and it doesn't look like any is coming. I guess I'll just have to put that money toward something else and concentrate on that. And concentrate on my kayaking trip in February, though a tropical getaway seems a little less imperative when you're not wading through snow. (Note to weather gods: Please don't do a repeat of last year and have the only winter snowstorm on my birthday! My flight leaves the next day!)

Last night we saw a band called The View at Mercury Lounge. It was a very atypical Mercury Lounge experience since it was an early show (7 pm) and when we got there at 7 the place was already quite crowded. There were no other bands before or after (unless you paid again for the later show). The View look like a bunch of scrappy Scottish 15-year-olds. Sara and I were surprised at how young they looked. They spoke with the kind of Scottish accent that might as well be a different language. Overall their set was fun. A few songs seemed a bit choppy, like they could do with some more practice, but others I really enjoyed. We were out of there at 8:10 and home by 9. Very atypical for a gig night, but it was nice in that Nathan and I got to have a relaxing evening together at home. Wonderful, actually.
