I Need Some Viagra

I got back Sunday from my jet setting across Europe. When I finally got home, I thought I was going to kiss the tarmac at JFK. I was just so homesick and could not wait to get back to New York. While Milan, Frankfurt & Istanbul were fun, I missed New York oh so much. For example:

  • My doorman. I almost gave him a hug when I saw him. He completes me because if he's not there when I come home every night, how would I get in?
  • Tourist pinball. In the morning, I get to shove tourists out of my way. I suppose this could apply to any town or city where you live, but in New York, it's a past time.
  • New York Smells. As bad as Chinatown can smell, a crowded subway tram in Istanbul is 10 times worse. Let's just say people in Istanbul have interesting bodily scents.
  • New York City tap water. I can actually drink the tap water in New York. Now, I actually can only remember drinking New York tap water maybe three times in the 8 years that I've lived here. But staying at a hotel in Istanbul where bottled water is 12 YTL (about $8.00) in the minibar, while on the street it's about $0.30, made me take a pledge to appreciate New York City tap water.
I'll stop there because I've gotten into trouble for bitching before, and also I'm kind of rambling incoherently at this point since my mind is still entering this weird jet-lag induced limbo at about 7:30 each night, where I'm too tired to sleep, and at the same time too tired to do anything else but sleep. The upside to this is that I get up at 5:00AM, fresh as a daisy, not that I get anything accomplished between 5:00AM & 8:00AM, unless you count going through my DVR as an accomplishment (I do.)

But as I was researching this evening jet lag remedies, I came across this article. Ah, Viagra. Awesome way to kill two birds with one stone.

Leave them birds alone. PETA will not take it too kindly if you fuck them to death.

But seriously, I didn't know Viagra would do the trick. But who would you trick with?

i've never really gotten used to having a doorman personally-- they know WAY too much about all of us. i only hope mine doesn't have a blog!

I always want to know how people even begin to try to discover things like this.

My attempt to make a joke about "killing two birds with one stone" by taking Viagra failed miserably. :-(

I guess I better get back to my day job.

"Would you like fries with that, sir?"

Heh, who knew Viagra had a collateral benefit?

Welcome back to the Upper West Side!
