Strangest email of the day:
“The [mounted] microwave in the employee kitchen on your floor is broken. Please remove it and dispose of it”
All the while I had hours of busy work to still do….
Hopefully I get to conquer the microwave tomorrow.

Another thing I don’t understand about how kids go “Trick or Treat”-ing in Manhattan (besides that they mainly patronize stores).
Back in my hometown, there are set “trick-or-treat” hours. Either 4-6, 5-7 or 6-8pm depending on
the year (each of the suburbs sets their own time).
Around here–kids have been getting candy since the early morning! What gives?
Oh, and there’s candy here at the apartment should anyone want to come by! (Healthy, sugar-free foods are also availble here if you ask nicely).

The Sister informed and the Brother that today on the Lower East Side was going to be a “pickle fair”.
The Tenth Annual NYC International Pickle Fair no less!
Indeed–there is such a fair annually. Only fitting that it’s held on the LES as well.
Not only did we get to sample all sorts of yummy pickles (I’m a fan of full sour, whereas Sister and Brother like half-sour). There were other interesting pickled items on display as well (and kimchi was represented too).
Probably the most interesting thing I tried was the truffled pickles. Good stuff! Pickles on a stick–a bit of a bizarre novelty
Alas, we were pressed for time, as we had to get back up town to get The Brother to La Guardia for his flight home, but we all had a good time and lots of tasty pickles!.
Oh wait, this isn’t about NYC under Mayor Bloomberg–instead it’s Russia!

Things I learned at work today:
–I still fail to understand the female mindset. Not that I was explicitly trying to do so–but today presented
me with things that perplexed me.
–Still not used to feeling “popular” at work–especially amongst the higher-level staff.
–Fleishigs for brekfast continues to be t3h awes0mez
–I’ll have a glass of whatever the Boss was drinking–he was in such an upbeat mood!
–The sister had bottles of Smirnoff Ice in the fridge (eeeeewwww!)
–Take heart patients–navigating the maze of insurance companies is quite a headache for providers as well. Patients should feel fortunate when they’re able to get a customer service agent on the line–as with certain insurances we don’t get humans.
–No, CPAP machines don’t magically have feet that enable them to walk away
on their own….
In the past there were legends like: “Scarface”, “Machine-gun”, Mugsy,
“Sammy the Bull”, “King Blood”, etc. However, Mexico had a gangster nicknamed: “The Barbie” Ken was not

Saw this story in AMNY today:
Queens man lives in bathroom to cut off tech addiction
Odd, but not as bad as say China where they have “tech addiction camps”.
Reminds me of a story one of my Rabbis once told our class about one of the great Torah scholars (I want to say of the Middle Ages–but I can’t remember exactly). The scholar was so focused on his Torah studies, that occasionally he would take himself into the bathroom to read and learn secular subjects–namely mathematics . (I think
the individual was the Vilna Gaon?)

Got two very strange emails from patients this evening…. They’ve left me shaking my head… [With hyper-deference to privacy rules, I won’t say any more]
Definitely a way to cap off a Monday…

All we had to bring to school was a few boxes of tissues (for each class no less) on top of all the other pencils, crayons, markers,

We didn’t have to bring toilet paper…
And when I was your age…”four square” was also just a game we played on the playground. (Good times)
