Out My Window
Hey! The Christmas cactus bloomed!
Anyone who's ever talked to me on the phone for long has heard this fire engine in the background. They pull out of the station, sirens roaring, just for fun, every 15 minutes or so. Around the clock. Rain or shine. Or, as it turns out, snow. Now you can see why you hear them so clearly over the phone: Their station entrance is in a direct line of sight from my apartment. Let's hear it for New York's Bravest--would you want to get called out in the blinding snow to go squirt water at a roaring fire?
This is the building I used to live in, before the landlord threw me out so he could move his sister into my old apartment. You'll notice that I look down on the building now.
