Rats in the cellar

Yesterday I took six individual subway trains (making up four trips underground). While waiting on those six trains, I saw one train pull out as I arrived, and twelve trains heading the other direction. But the subway can provide its own entertainment:

Year of the Pig

This weekend I went to Chinatown with some friends for the first day of the Chinese new year. This is the Year of the Pig, and according to some sources, it’s the Year of the Golden Pig, which happens only once every 600 years.

Cuteness isn’t just in the sidebar

I went to a party last weekend. These were two of the residents of the place. Sweet, aren’t they?

And happy Groundhog Day!
