Sum of (Almost) All Metrocards

I’m still in Asheville, North Carolina, celebrating my parents’ 50th anniversary, but if you are not here celebrating and close to nyc, you should totally get up early to see what the summer streets celebration is all about. If you do go, let us know what is awesome/not awesome  about it.



  1. I do also have to mention I gave the most awesome toast tonight at the fancy party and I totally plan to repeat the exact same thing at the riffraff/family party tomorrow.

    I also wandered in to a few bike stores in Asheville, and saw a few fixed gear bikes on the streets, which made me think the riders were very dedicated to being hipsters/hippies given the hills in Asheville.

  2. Haha, I didn’t know riding a fixed gear made me a hipster. But it’s a welcome change from an ‘oaf on a bike’.

  3. I think it might, but I’m not really clearly on what a hipster is, so that’s why I’m like hippie? Hipster?

    here’s someone who can break types of bike riders down better than I can:

  4. Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. 🙂 Cheers! Sandra. R.
