spotted this gentleman on the corner of 57th & 6th over the weekend, coming out of a pop-up fur coat sample sale. he was certainly the target market in this burgundy number. fur coats for men fascinate me, but he was owning it.
this woman got on the bus in head to toe powder blue. her skirt had an abundance of kittens printed on it (shame you can't see that) and she had this topper of a headband. and, oh, she was waaaay too old be in this get up on a day that was not halloween.
curmudgeon electoral inspector: sigh. well, you waited until the last minute.
pleasant pollworker: ok, here we go - sign here, please.
curmudgeon electoral inspector: why did you wait until the last minute?
pleasant pollworker: please excuse him. you do not have to answer that.
voter (me): exactly.
in the immortal words of stephanie tanner, "how rude!" now yes, i did arrive just as the polls were closing. but, the polls were legally open until 9pm in new york and i was perfectly within my constitutional right to vote. and there were still voters coming in behind me.
total bummer, new york. i may just have to write a letter of complaint to the board of elections...
not much can top the TFAAF halloween party of 2006, but maybe one year i'll try again. in the meantime, i quite enjoyed my neighbor's haunted hallway/house complete with a fog machine and--as you can see by today's remnants--a coffin.
