Help, my giant poisonous spider is missing — and she’s pregnant!
A hairy Mexican red rump tarantula named Penelope is on the loose in Park Slope. . . . “She’s mostly active at night and she tends to hide in dark corners,” . . . On the sign, the pet owner asks whoever finds her to put her in a “tupperware bowl” with holes, so she can breathe.
When you seek it, you cannot find it.

last night i was on the phone with a friend when a call from an 800 number beeped in. assuming it was a telemarketer i ignored the call. earlier today, i realized that i had a message from the 800# call last night. it was katelin from ticketmaster. she wanted to verify that i had authorized a $967.80 debit card charge for tickets to the miami heat / nets game last evening.
the first thing question that came to mind was, is that baseball or basketball? the next thought i had was, why would i authorize a charge for $967.80 when i had less than $500 in my bank account?
i now have negative $457.
No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.

out the window of my apartment, it looked like this most of the day:
it’s been snowing since early in the morning.
it is currently thundering. thundering really loud. and a lot.
i want my normal back.

Weekend storm could drop 3… or 30 inches of snow.
The Weather Underground forecasting service sees scattered snow starting in the city Saturday night, real snow coming Sunday morning (one to three inches), followed by more later in the day (three to five inches) — and flurries on Monday.
That’s not quite 30 inches. . . .
That could produce a blizzard that drops several inches of snow per hour on whoever is unlucky enough to suffer the brunt of it, making it the worst storm of what’s becoming known as “the terrible winter of ’14.”
But five days out, it’s all far from certain. “I think we’re throwing darts,” Kines said.

from the times square newsletter:
Destroy your worries and bad memories of 2013 and start fresh in 2014!
Submit your bad memories, crazy ex-bosses, loathed music, over-exposed celebrities, corrupt politicians, fashion disasters and ill-fated romances – anything from 2013 to which you’d like to say “Good Riddance!”
At the event Cintas awarded an iPad and tickets to the Broadway show Mamma Mia! for the Most Creative entry.
Pearl Chan won for saying Good Riddance to 2012 – the worst year of her life. Chan took care of her chronically ill boyfriend for 2 years only to be dumped and cheated on after he recovered.
i’m entering the contest. . . . just giving you a heads up so you don’t waste any of your own time as i’m pretty sure i am going to win this one.

i park my car all the way uptown in east harlem on 117th street. the last time i parked the car, i ran into curtis on my walk over to the subway en-route to midtown. curtis is a sweet kid who worked as a temporary porter / doorman in my building at the time of the doormen’s strike. he lives uptown and was on his way home when we met several weeks back. i wondered if i would see him again as i walked from 117th to the 116th street train station.
as i stood on the platform and waited for the train, i thought about curtis and hoped he was doing well. when i last spoke with him, he had still not found a job. he decided to go back to school and planned on applying to an audio engineering program at a college in the bronx. i wondered if he followed through.
as i exited the train at the 51st street platform, who do you think was sitting on the bench waiting for a train? yup, it was curtis! he was running some errands for his mom, which brought him to midtown. he will find out next week if he is accepted into the engineering program.
i love when the universe answers immediately!
