The keyboard tray is still there. They must be busy with higher priority tasks like installing the things on every desk in the building. At least there isn't a mouse living in the desk (ick! This happened to N, but she did have cookies in there).
Before going to the Times, I stopped at the 42nd St. P.O. to mail out 4 books but the line was too long so I left. At times that place is strangely empty, but this wasn't one of them. I didn't want to keep carrying the books back and forth, so after work (midnight) walked down to the main P.O. and got them mailed there. There was a bit of a line (geez, who goes to the post office at midnight?) but I was glad to get that done.
I turned down a job proofreading CosmoGirl! su-DUDE-ku with pics of cute boys instead of numbers. Soooo cute, but uh, no.
Speaking of cute boys, I watched the "Power of 10" premiere. No, not Drew Carey (though he is appealing as host and I think he'll do well on TPIR), the adorable contestant who is now a millionaire (but I also liked him when he was poor). Although it isn't really my kind of game show (I prefer more content and skill), I enjoyed it anyway. I may have been biased since I've worked for the company and know some of the writers, but I think it will do well. On the other hand, I haven't gone running to TiVo to watch Wednesday's show before it scrolls off.
On Monday I saw "Rocket Science" at the plush HBO screening room. This story of a stuttering kid who joins the debating team was poignant and painful at times, but kept me thinking afterward. The cast of unknowns did a good job playing characters who might have been too self-consciously quirky but this is fiction, not a documentary.
I'll be returning to the same location shortly for "The King of Kong," which is a documentary.
