Plus! Eric Adams Watch! CAFÉ ANNE quarterly progress report!
I forwarded your Tolstoy facts to the War And Peace in 7 Years podcast, and they did a shout out for you too last month! Love that you’re getting more attention!
I love Eric Adams watch!
Love that more and more people are discovering your awesome ‘stack. So happy for you!
I'm just here to say how Cafe Anne delights me. I live a million miles from New York, in Auckland, New Zealand, and haven't set foot in your city since the 90s. The first time I went there in the 80s I went up to the observation floor in one of the long-lost twin towers and marveled at the sight of helicopters flying round below me. In my experience then, watching a chopper required looking up.
Anyhoo, thanks for these doses of good cheer, Anne. They always make me smile, even though I don't know the streets and landmarks you're talking about. You're an ace reporter with a keen eye for a good story. I used to edit magazines and you almost prompt me to try the same kinda idea in my own city. But I also know how much energy this takes on a regular basis!
Meanwhile, am I your most distant fan – at 8828 miles and 19 hours' flying time? Air New Zealand is starting a direct flight between our two places at the end of this year which will take a mere 17 hours or so. Maybe it's time I came again!
BMW = Brooklyn Messages Wanted
"....like an egg falling from the nest, it’s gaining momentum...."
Considering the ultimate fate of the egg, I'm not sure this is a good analogy.
I really love this BMW message board story! The story you imagined was good, but as always, truth is stranger than fiction!
I think I need to run for mayor of NYC. I'm sure Eric Adams is great (or awful) depending on your politics. But here's the thing. I REALLY want a job where I can crush dirt bikes, learn to jet-ski, post my drumming lessons on TikTok, and work out of a secret office. What will it take to make this happen?
I saw the drawing on the hood of the Kia and literally yelled "IS THAT SHERITA?!" very loudly, and I'm glad I'm working from home today, because that would take a lot of explaining to coworkers otherwise. (And after checking, I see now that it was NOT Sherita. But maybe it was a cousin of hers?)
Thanks for the shoutout Anne to my Newsletter. I hope someone downloads the wastewater PDF for kids coloring book. Love the abandoned BMW, especially the improvised pen holder. I bet if this were in NJ on the Turnpike, they'd have the pens attached to long strings like the days of filling station bathoom keys attached to large chunks of wood. This BMW couldn't survive in my community b/c I am sure there is a strict statute enforced by Scandinavians to ensure order. Even when there is a deluge of snow, cars get towed out of snowbanks here. I am guessing if I search (which I will) there is a very sanitized and orderly index of public art here. As for your Mayor, as I've said before, guys like him (and Jesse Ventura) make politics fun. Congratulations on approaching minimum wage compensation.
