WTF NYC Moment of the Week

As I was haulin’ my lazy butt to the gym today, I passed a well-dressed guy in a trenchcoat…carrying a toilet seat.  WTF?

Obviously NYC is a largely pedestrian city, and as someone who doesn’t have a car, I’m sure I’ve been spotted carrying my fair share of bizarre things around my neighborhood.  But toting a toilet seat through the West Village?

“Hey dude, you still coming over for brunch today?  Can you bring your toilet seat?”


Actually, it’s become kind of a fun NYC pastime to invent backstories for people whose bizarre antics or conversations I observe.  And believe me, I’m not hurting for material.

Today’s EAT:  We are headed to Nook for dinner, a very cute-looking bistro in Hell’s Kitchen that I’m very excited to try out!  And – huge bonus! – it’s BYOB, so I’ll be scouring the wine rack shortly for something that won’t embarrass us in front of our dining companions. 🙂

Today’s DRINK: I’m bored waiting to go to dinner, so why not have a glass of wine?  No brainer!  I opened a bottle of Chilean wine that I got at TJ’s a while back.  It was inexpensive – under $10.  Panilonco 2008 Reserve Chardonnay/Viognier:

Pretty sure I was enticed by the shiny gold lion on the label.  (Oooh, shiny!!)  I wonder sometimes how much money wineries invest in their labels.  I would guess a decent amount?  A cute label always sucks me in.

Anyway, it’s not a bad wine!  It pretty much tastes like a Chardonnay to me.  I’d buy it again!

Today’s RUN: I had some time on my hands today – so it was a perfect day for a nice long workout at the gym.  Except for the fact that apparently every other member had the same idea – the place was packed, ugh!  But aside from dodging the pretty boys in the weight room, I got a great workout in: 3 easy miles on the TM (24:45), then upper body weights (bench press, lat pull down, shoulder press, assisted dip, dumbbell fly, lat raise, low row, supermans and lots of push ups).
