I have returned!

But it appears the Philadelphia Eagles have not decided to remain triumphant along with me. Dismal game last night, but that's what pre-season football is for. Just to make sure you didn't come into the season with your hopes up.

So far, my first few days in Manhattan, working out on Long Island have gone smoothly. This morning I grabbed a coffee and a bagel around the corner and then drove off into the Queensboro Bridge traffic listening to NPR. I so prefer commuting in a car to the train. You can sip your joe and munch breakfast. Although the train does offer the perk of allowing you to read. Driving and reading probably don't make good bedfellows.

H & H Midtown Bagels makes a tasty veggie cream cheese, but I'm still baffled about why you're handed your coffee in a paper bag here in the New York City. Are you going to take it somewhere, or are you going to drink it?

I've been out of the writing game for a while, so I'm feeling rusty here on the keyboard, however, I just exchanged a gift certificate that a friend sent from GiftCertificates.com for stuff from Sephora.com, so life is good.

In the meantime, I'm reading back issues of the magazine I am now writing for, CRN. Delightful stuff, the tech industry! Someday, I'll get one of those columnist-about-whatever gigs, or a job at The New Yorker (me and everyone else...).
