It's nice to have a Guy in New York
Big Apple Blog Festival.This is, of course, a carnival primarily for New York City-related blogs.
This week, A Guy in New York, the founder (I think) of this fest, was the host. Since I was actually laying off my blog-whoring ways for a few days at least, imagine my surprise when I discovered that Guy had posted an unsolicited link to my latest "comment" rantwithout me having to shamelessly slut myself out with an e-mail alerting him to my post.
Anyway, this week's festival offers an embarassment of New York riches, including, of course, lots of kvetching, which is as automatic to New Yorkers as breathing. To get an idea of how New Yorkers deal with the space limitations of their apartments, check out this post by The Beliggerent Intellectual, who has to rearrange or even THROW OUT furniture in order to fit a Christmas tree into his closet-sized abode every year. Hey, who WOULDN'T want to subsist in an apartment smaller than a death-row cell--all for the privilege of living in the city? Yeah, people are lunatics here.
If you'd like to get a better idea of what a blog carnival is all about, or if you're a New York blogger looking for some shout-outs, you can find this week's fest here.
(Oh yeah-- this is the Naked Cowboy of Times Square, one of the city's most beloved folk heroes and tourist attractions.)
End of pimp-out. Please continue kvetching below.
