Court Square, September 22, 2013

This reminds me of something I learned from my new friend Mario. While we were talking about the situation at his feral cat colony, I was being eaten alive by mosquitos. He noticed this and gave me some advice: tie a yellow onion to my belt and periodically squeeze it (so as to release the smell). Apparently these little monsters do not like this. I cannot say I have gotten up the gumption to try this yet— but who knows…

As seen from Court Square. This is not a great photo— but it is a beautiful sight nonetheless!

Urban Artifact: 23rd Street

sacredplunger

Me to the Mister* upon discovering this exotic and most unexpected item:

Behold, a sacred relic of the Cherohonkee tribe!

This one’s for you, Pa Heather.

*Who I would like take a moment to thank. Had there not been some, um, confusion between Queensbridge and Queensboro Plaza on his part— and I was not feeling like a bigger jackass than usual and decided to let him learn the hard way— we would not have needed to walk down this thoroughfare so as to catch the B62. I served as the Mister’s guide through this “uncharted territory”. Most of this was done in silence for reasons I think need no explanation—but I digress. Had we not walked down this street, we would not have happened upon this most exceptional urban artifact (which I have determined to be a “shamanistic shit stick” of the Cherohonkee tribe which is a member of the Trustifarian Nation).
