He’s a real button-pusher!

A booze-chugging bum keeps pressing an emergency “call-box” button in Tribeca — forcing firefighters to rush to the scene because he simply wants a comfy spot to sleep off his hangover, FDNY sources said.

Orlando Kerton, 60, has activated a red “fire” button at Walker and Lafayette streets in Manhattan 30 times in the past two months, requesting to be chauffeured to a hospital bed, FDNY sources said.

missing rubies


against my better judgement i went to the whole foods on 57th street off 2nd ave.   whole foods is not a place one should go without plenty of money to spend . . . but i went.   i just needed some milk and a ruby-red grapefruit, and good ruby-red grapefruits are hard to come by.   most of the time when i get home with a ruby-red grapefruit i’m stoked if it’s even dark pink.  i figured if anyone had good ruby-red grapefruits, it would be whole paycheck foods and i was willing walk 5 blocks &  pay $2.19 because i really wanted a perfect, juicy, dark- ruby-red grapefruit. 

here it is:

welcome to my world. . .  

may tomorrow be a better day.

missing notes!


if you follow my posts regularly, you probably know about my freakish “electronic disorder”.  if not, you can read about it  here & here

just this week i blew out 2 light bulbs, which were both replaced less than 2 months ago, my tv remote decided to stop working for no apparent reason and the batteries in the dvd remote completely corroded. i can only get internet service in one small spot in my apartment – unless of course it’s raining or even just extremely humid, in which case i cannot connect at all.  i’m actually grateful to have tv / internet at all since i canceled all services with time warner cable on april 12th due to my current financial circumstances.  the cable guy felt sorry for me so he left me with hook up to the basic channels 2 – 13 (minus channel 12 for some reason).  i hook on to the one internet network in the building that isn’t locked and wake up in fear each day that the person who unknowingly shares it with me will move.  all of that, i can live with – but now my notes have vanished.

i have an ipad with a ‘notes app’ that syncs with the notes on my phone.  i use the note pad regularly to record everything.  it’s the record of my life.  this morning i opened my ipad notes and all pages were blank.  no notes. nada.  i rushed to my phone hoping for a back-up copy and found only blank pages there as well.

i’m wondering about the message here . . .
